  • Publication number: 20220016967
    Abstract: Vehicle platforms, and systems, subsystems, and components thereof are described. A self-contained vehicle platform or chassis incorporating substantially all of the functional systems, subsystems and components (e.g., mechanical, electrical, structural, etc.) necessary for an operative vehicle. Functional components may include at least energy storage/conversion, propulsion, suspension and wheels, steering, crash protection, and braking systems. Functional components are standardized such that vehicle platforms may be interconnected with a variety of vehicle body designs (also referred to in the art as “top hats”) with minimal or no modification to the functional linkages (e.g., mechanical, structural, electrical, etc.) therebetween. Configurations of functional components are incorporated within the vehicle platform such that there is minimal or no physical overlap between the functional components and the area defined by the vehicle body.

  • Publication number: 20210307451
    Abstract: An insole and/or outsole for a shoe such as an athletic shoe or cleat that includes a multilayer channeled assembly designed at preventing the transfer of heat from extremely hot ground surfaces, most notably synthetic turf, to the foot. In one embodiment, the insole includes a channeled layer of solid material with a very low thermal conductivity, preferably silicon or cork, as the base material beneath a layer of heat resistant felt preferably made of oxidized polyacrylonitrile fibers. The channeling in the base layer allows for air pockets to be created within the insole itself that makes the heat resistant felt more resistant to (i.e., more efficient at preventing) the transfer of heat. In another embodiment, the outsole for a shoe such as an athletic shoe or cleat includes a base layer of channeled solid material with low thermal conductivity, preferably silicon, cork, or polystyrene, below a layer of heat resistant felt preferably made of oxidized polyacrylonitrile fibers.

  • Patent number: 10972983
    Abstract: A method and apparatus may include activating, by a network node, power of a global-positioning-system receiver or power of an active antenna of the global-positioning-system receiver. The apparatus uses the global-positioning-system receiver to perform synchronization of the apparatus. The method may include receiving at least one measurement, wherein the at least one measurement includes real-time, predictive, or historic data. The method may also include determining a holdover duration based on the at least one measurement. The holdover duration corresponds to a length of time where the power of the global-positioning-system receiver or the power of the active antenna is to be turned off. The method may also include deactivating the power of the global-positioning-system receiver or the power of the active antenna for the holdover duration.

  • Patent number: 10894587
    Abstract: A preformed foundation support for a vessel gyro-stabilization system, comprises at least three of a first side support, a second side support, a third side support, and a fourth side support. The side supports define an opening for accommodating at least a portion of a vessel gyro-stabilization system, and the side supports comprise a cuttable portion for custom fitting the preformed foundation support in a vessel. The preformed foundation support structure is installed in the vessel by cutting the cuttable portion of the preformed foundation support for custom fitting the preformed foundation support to the structure support of the vessel. The preformed foundation support structure can be manufactured as a molded fiberglass structure.

  • Publication number: 20200375605
    Abstract: A method of treating a vessel in a human or animal body, including the steps of: positioning an implantable device against a portion of tubular or sac wall of the vessel, whereby a load applied to the vessel is borne by the vessel wall and also by the device to transfer energy to an energy storage means, the vessel being assisted when the energy storage means returns the stored energy to the device. Further disclosed is a treatment or assistance device for operating in or with a tubular or sac wall of a vessel in a human or animal body, the device including a changeable volume portion which is adapted to interact with the vessel to modify the vessel's volume; and an energy storage means functioning with the changeable volume portion whereby a decrease in the volume of said changeable volume portion creates an energy charge in the energy storage means, the energy charge being able to be subsequently released to cause the changeable volume portion to increase in volume.

  • Patent number: 9148278
    Abstract: Systems and techniques for oscillator control are described. A fixed or controlled oscillator feeds a plurality of evenly spaced tap points multiplexed to an output by a multiplexer. A phase change control circuit changes the multiplexer to a new tap point one phase tap at a time, with the change being made when an oscillator clock edge will not be repeated to an output. The phase change control circuit determines when to change the multiplexer setting based on the overflow of an accumulator, which is continuously summing an increment value. The sign of the accumulator increment value determines the direction of the multiplexor updates. The resulting output signal from the multiplexor is a new output frequency related to the oscillator frequency and the accumulator increment value. With a plurality of multiplexer controlled outputs and corresponding phase change control circuits, a plurality of output frequencies can be created from one oscillator.

  • Publication number: 20150059216
    Abstract: A novelty golf overshoe provides a golf club surface on the side of the overshoe that enables the golfer to strike the golf ball with the overshoe. The golf club surface is shaped with a silhouette like the toes of the human foot. The overshoe is either clipped onto the shoe or stretched over the shoe to ensure optimal fit during wear. The user may use the overshoe's attached club face to strike a golf ball.
