  • Publication number: 20200084480
    Abstract: A system disclosed within this document is capable of improving performance in virtual computing environments, e.g., by reducing latency associated with streaming video data between a client device and an associated server system over a network. As discussed in detail below, such performance improvements can be achieved using techniques that avoid, reduce and/or overlap operations that are executed by the server system in order to render, encode, and/or transmit video data to a client device over a network. Such techniques can be used to reduce propagation and/or processing delays imposed by, for example, the server system's CPU operations, input/output (I/O), infrastructure, NIC, OS processes, among other types of hardware and software-based overheads. In various implementations, the performance enhancements can be realized at the rendering, encoding, or transmission operations performed by the server system.

  • Patent number: 10575433
    Abstract: There is disclosed an enclosure and cooling system for electronic equipment that provides forced-air cooling of multiple compartmentalized electronics assemblies while simultaneously isolating the electronics assemblies from the ambient environment, keeping the electronics assemblies free from contamination due to harmful dust, dirt, water, corrosives, and other airborne foreign matter. Embodiments include an air-conduction cooled environmentally-sealed electronics enclosure having at least first and second environmentally-sealed electronics compartments, each containing a respective electronic assembly. A common-air cooling channel containing a fin core is disposed between the first and the second electronics compartments, such that ambient air drawn from an air intake, through the common channel, and out an air exhaust removes heat generated by the electronic assemblies within the sealed compartments to an exterior of the enclosure. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20200026348
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for performing localization of a handheld device with respect to a wearable device. At least one sensor mounted to the handheld device, such as an inertial measurement unit (IMU), may obtain handheld data indicative of movement of the handheld device with respect to the world. An imaging device mounted to either the handheld device or the wearable device may capture a fiducial image containing a number of fiducials affixed to the other device. The number of fiducials contained in the image are determined. Based on the number of fiducials, at least one of a position and an orientation of the handheld device with respect to the wearable device are updated based on the image and the handheld data in accordance with a first operating state, a second operating state, or a third operating state.

  • Publication number: 20200009491
    Abstract: Aspects herein include filter systems including short-range wireless tracking features to detect insertion and/or removal of filter elements from filter systems. In an embodiment, a filtration system is included having a housing including a fluid inlet and a fluid outlet. The housing can define an internal volume. A first filter element can be removably disposed within the housing. A short-range wireless communication tag can be associated with the first filter element. A short-range wireless communication reader can be associated with the housing, the reader configured to wirelessly send data to and receive data from the tag when the reader and the tag are at a distance that is less than or equal to a maximum communication distance. Removal of the first filter element from the housing can cause the distance between the tag and the reader to exceed the maximum communication distance. Other embodiments are also included herein.
