METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING MANEUVERABLE STROLLERS

Maneuverable strollers are disclosed. An example method for manufacturing a stroller includes mounting a front wheel to a frame; mounting a rear wheel and an intermediate wheel to a connector; and mounting the connector to the frame at a pivot axis such that the intermediate wheel is located between the front wheel and the rear wheel and the pivot axis is located between the rear wheel and the intermediate wheel.

METHODS AND APPARATUS TO WIRELESSLY INTERLOCK DOORS

Methods and apparatus to wirelessly interlock doors are disclosed. A door system includes a user interface to receive interlock configuration data input from a user, the interlock configuration data to define an interlock condition to be satisfied before a first door is to undergo an operation, the interlock condition associated with a current state of a second door. The door system includes a first wireless transceiver to receive a signal from a second wireless transceiver associated with a second door. The method includes a door operation controller to at least one of (1) implement the operation of the first door in response to a request when the current state of the second door satisfies the interlock condition, (2) ignore the request, or (3) not execute the operation of the first door in response to the request when the current state of the second door does not satisfy the interlock condition.

WORK MACHINES AND METHODS AND SYSTEMS TO CONTROL AND DETERMINE A POSITION OF AN ASSOCIATED IMPLEMENT

Work machines and methods and systems to control and determine a position of an associated implement are disclosed. An example work machine including a first vehicle component movable relative to a second vehicle component; and a processor to: cause the first vehicle component to move toward a commanded position; predict a first position of the first vehicle component of the work machine using first processes; determine a second position of the first vehicle component using second processes; and in response to a difference between the first position and the second position, to cause the first vehicle component to move further toward the commanded position to correct for the difference.

PLAY YARDS AND METHODS OF OPERATING THE SAME

Play yards and methods of operating the same are disclosed. An example play yard includes a collapsible upper frame, a collapsible lower frame, and posts to support the upper frame above the lower frame. The posts include respective tracks. The example play yard also includes an enclosure operatively coupled to the upper frame, the lower frame and the posts. The enclosure defines an enclosure volume. The enclosure has a plurality of corner beads dimensioned for receipt in respective ones of the tracks to secure the enclosure to the posts.

APPARATUS AND METHODS TO TRACK SPORT IMPLEMENTS

Examples are disclosed to track sport implements and/or objects of interest. An example apparatus includes a first coil to generate a first magnetic field having a first vertical component with a zero magnitude along a first line of interest and a second coil partially overlapped with the first coil, where the second coil is to generate a second magnetic field. The example apparatus also includes a sensor to measure a magnitude of the first magnetic field in the first line of interest and a processor to determine an object of interest has crossed the first line of interest based on the magnitude of the first magnetic field measured by the sensor.

OVERHEAD COMMUNICATIONS WITH WIRELESS WEARABLE DEVICES

Overhead communications with wireless wearable devices are disclosed. An example overhead wireless transmission interface apparatus includes a fixture to be mounted above a wearable device, where the wearable device includes a first antenna, and a base station associated with a second antenna, the second antenna coupled to the fixture and to wirelessly communicate with the first antenna, where at least one of the first antenna or the second antenna is circular polarized or diversity polarized.

METHODS AND APPARATUS FOR A DISTRIBUTED AIRCRAFT ACTUATION SYSTEM

Methods, apparatus, and articles of manufacture for a distributed aircraft actuation system are disclosed. An example apparatus includes a collection engine to obtain first monitoring information corresponding to a first set of control surfaces of an aircraft, the first set including a first control surface on a first side of the aircraft and a second control surface on a second side of the aircraft, the second side opposite the first, and obtain second monitoring information corresponding to a second set of control surfaces of the aircraft, the second set including a third control surface on the first side and a fourth control surface on the second side. The example apparatus further includes a non-responsive component detector to determine if one of the control surfaces is non-responsive based on the first and the second monitoring information, and a command generator to deactivate the first set when the non-responsive component detector determines that the first control surface is non-responsive while the second set remains active.

BLOOD PRESSURE APPARATUS USING ACTIVE MATERIALS AND RELATED METHODS

Example blood pressure apparatus using active materials and related methods are described herein. An example apparatus includes a band to be worn around a limb of a user, an active material carried by the band and a controller to: (1) apply an activation signal to the active material to constrict blood flow in the limb, and (2) reduce the activation signal to allow blood flow in the limb.

SEPTUMS AND RELATED METHODS

Example apparatus including septums and related methods are disclosed. An example apparatus includes a septum that includes a first surface and a membrane coupled to at least a portion of the first surface. In addition, the example septum includes a second surface and ribs extending between the membrane and the second surface.
