10372 results about "Gravitation" patented technology

Gravity (from Latin gravitas, meaning 'weight'), or gravitation, is a natural phenomenon by which all things with mass or energy—including planets, stars, galaxies, and even light—are brought toward (or gravitate toward) one another. On Earth, gravity gives weight to physical objects, and the Moon's gravity causes the ocean tides. The gravitational attraction of the original gaseous matter present in the Universe caused it to begin coalescing, forming stars—and for the stars to group together into galaxies—so gravity is responsible for many of the large-scale structures in the Universe. Gravity has an infinite range, although its effects become increasingly weaker on farther objects.

Post patch assembly for mounting devices in a tire interior

A modular electronic assembly for integration with a pneumatic tire includes a mounting patch, a power source, and at least one electronic device supported by a substrate. The mounting patch is preferably adapted for positioning on the inner liner of a pneumatic tire, and the power source is at least partially embedded in the mounting patch. Such embedded positioning of the battery results in an overall structure with a lower center of gravity than previous tire electronics assemblies, thus having increased mechanical stability and survivability in a tire environment. Electronic device(s) supported on the substrate may receive power from the power source, which in some embodiments corresponds to one or more batteries. The substrate supporting the at least one electronic device may be attached to the mounting patch by a variety of fashions. Exemplary attachment configurations may correspond to an adhesive layer, a hook and loop tape combination, or physical interconnection via terminals extending from the power source through the support substrate. Exemplary electronic devices may include such components as condition-responsive devices including transducers, acoustic devices, sensors, etc. for sensing certain environmental conditions such as temperature and/or pressure, tire revolution counters, vehicle speed sensors, sidewall deflection sensors, tire displacement sensors, microprocessors, memory modules, RFID transponders, light assemblies, data transmitters and/or receivers, and power, supply components. Selected of the electronic devices (including one or more antennas associated with any RF devices) may be encapsulated by a non-conductive rubber or elastic material to facilitate effective transmission characteristics. Conductive springs, flexible conductive elastomer or fatigue-resistance metal may be used to interconnect various electronic components (such as an RF device to an antenna).

Magnetic levitation stirring devices and machines for mixing in vessels

The invention provides a simple method, devices and several machines for simultaneously stirring and aerating thousands of vessels or wells of microplates in a robust manner and with economy. This method uses the simple principle of magnetic stirrers being levitated vertically when passed laterally or vertically through a strong horizontal dipole magnetic field. The dipole magnetic fields may be produced by using permanent magnets, electromagnets or a modulating/reversing electro-magnetic field. Each vessel contains a magnetic ball, disc, bar, dowel or other shape (stirrers) which in their magnetic attraction to the dipole magnetic field will cause the stirrers to levitate up in the vessel as the stirrer's magnetic poles attempt to align with the center of the dipole's magnetic field. The stirrers will fall to the bottom of the vessel by gravity or by changing the relative position of the levitating magnetic field to pull them down, or by passing the vessel laterally over another magnetic field. The up and down movement of the stirrers provides a vigorous mixing of the contents of many vessels at same time. If the level of the vessel's meniscus is situated so the stirrers pass through it on their way up and down, the air/liquid interface is significantly increased thereby significantly increasing aeration of the liquid.

Machine vision and inertial navigation fusion-based mobile robot motion attitude estimation method

The invention discloses a machine vision and inertial navigation fusion-based mobile robot motion attitude estimation method which comprises the following steps of: synchronously acquiring a mobile robot binocular camera image and triaxial inertial navigation data; distilling front/back frame image characteristics and matching estimation motion attitude; computing a pitch angle and a roll angle by inertial navigation; building a kalman filter model to estimate to fuse vision and inertial navigation attitude; adaptively adjusting a filter parameter according to estimation variance; and carrying out accumulated dead reckoning of attitude correction. According to the method, a real-time expanding kalman filter attitude estimation model is provided, the combination of inertial navigation and gravity acceleration direction is taken as supplement, three-direction attitude estimation of a visual speedometer is decoupled, and the accumulated error of the attitude estimation is corrected; and the filter parameter is adjusted by fuzzy logic according to motion state, the self-adaptive filtering estimation is realized, the influence of acceleration noise is reduced, and the positioning precision and robustness of the visual speedometer is effectively improved.

The invention relates to a crossed three-dimensional torpedo interception net capable of intercepting torpedoes, especially a torpedo interception net which can be projected or cast and can outspread automatically when entering into the water to form a decussate three-dimensional torpedo interception net. The appearance is column-shaped, a top cover is arranged at the top part and is fixed and sleeved by bayonet locks on the casing which is divided into four sections, the specific density of the top part is lighter than the seawater and the specific density of the bottom part is heavier than the seawater. A decussate bracket is arranged inside, a telescopic link is connected on the lateral side, and a suspended net is connected with the telescopic link via a hanger. When the torpedo interception net is projected or cast into sea via a surface ship, a submarine or a helicopter, the top cover is ejected via a spring, the casing is opened, a going barren dives the telescopic link to expand and the suspended net is dragged to outspread in horizontally. Under the upward pulling force of the telescopic link and the downward pulling force of the weight of the connector of the suspended net, the suspended net is outspreaded along vertical direction; a stabilization membrane connected with the inner side of the suspended net control the stability of the torpedo interception net along the vertical direction.
