Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.
This device is an automatic guided vehicle position verifier which allows the
tooling on top of the vehicle to be correctly aligned to other machines and also
provides for collision avoidance.
The arrangement is a failsafing mechanism to be used at a final docking
position for an automatic guided vehicle. The vehicle has a stopping location
tolerance in and out and left to right of plus or minus .250 inch. It is very
important that this location tolerance be maintained so collisions with other
machines can be avoided. The intent of the failsafing mechanism is to insure
that the vehicle stop within the location tolerance. If it did not, a warning signal
sounds indicating that the specific machine being interfaced with is shut down
until corrective action is taken, and/or the vehicle could be programmed to back
up and dock again a number of times until the out-of- tolerance condition no
In the event the light source in the sensor 1 fails, the failsafe condition still
exists due to the absence of light on the photodetector 2. By incorporating a cam
8 operated shutter mechanism 3 in the failsafe mechanism, the only time the
device says all conditions are okay for the transfer machinery to do their
functions is when a vehicle is located within the plus or minus .250 inch location
tolerance, as shown in Fig. l. If a vehicle is not at the docking station, the...
