  • Publication number: 20210363891
    Abstract: A turbine for a turbo-machine is proposed in which, at a gas inlet for a turbine wheel, vanes extend from a nozzle ring though slots in a shroud. The nozzle ring and shroud are relatively rotatable about a rotational axis of the turbine by at least 0.1 degrees. In use, the nozzle ring and shroud are relatively rotated to bring one side of the vane into close contact with one surface of the slot, to inhibit leakage of gas between the vane and the slot surface. For this purpose the respective surfaces of the nozzle and slot can be configured to closely conform to each other. If there is differential thermal expansion of the shroud and nozzle ring, the nozzle ring and shroud can relatively rotate, to withdraw the vane from the edge of the slot to relieve the pressure between them.

  • Publication number: 20210343387
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes establishing a communications link, via a short-range wireless protocol, between a mobile computing device and a medicament delivery device. A user input selecting a motion profile of the medicament delivery device is then received in response to an input prompt. A wireless signal is received from the medicament delivery device, the wireless signal associated with an actual motion profile of the medicament delivery device. A notification is produced to indicate a motion difference between the actual motion profile and the target motion profile. In some embodiments, the method optionally includes modifying the target motion profile based on the motion profile over a time period of at least one week, the notification indicating a motion difference between the motion profile and the modified target motion profile.

  • Publication number: 20210335139
    Abstract: An imaging system for a moving vehicle aggregates pre-existing data with sensor data to provide an image of the surrounding environment in real-time. The pre-existing data are combined with data from one or more 3-D sensors, and 2-D information from a camera, to create a scene model that is rendered for display. The system accepts data from a 3-D sensor, transforms the data into a 3-D data structure, fuses the pre-existing scene data with the 3-D data structure and 2-D image data from a 2-D sensor to create a combined scene model, and renders the combined scene model for display. The system may also weight aspects of data from first and second sensors to select at least one aspect from the first sensor and another aspect from the second sensor; wherein fusing the pre-existing scene data with the sensor data uses the selected aspect from the first sensor and the selected aspect from the second sensor.
