Using various embodiments, methods, systems, and apparatuses for controlling a camera pivoting device (e.g., mechanical gimbal) are described. In one embodiment, the system comprises a main computing device, a gimbal stabilizer controller, and a computer vision camera, and/or a user camera. The system is able to track a target object using the computer vision camera even while the target object is moving, the base of the pivoting device is moving (e.g., when a user controlling the camera moves), or a combination of thereof. The camera pivoting device of the embodiments disclosed herein can be mounted on to any number of devices/objects that can provide mobility and/or transportation.

Methods, devices and systems are described for decreasing the activity of the sympathetic nervous innervation to and from the lungs and the vessels supplying the lungs to treat pulmonary medical conditions such as asthma. In one embodiment, the method may involve advancing an intravascular instrument to a target location in a blood vessel within the intercostal vasculature to ablate either or both the sympathetic afferent and efferent nerves lying within the paravertebral gutter including the visceral fibers that travel to the cardiothoracic cavity and abdominopelvic viscera and the T1 to T4/5 sympathetic chain. In another embodiment, an intravascular instrument may be advanced to the bronchial vessels to ablate either or both the sympathetic afferent and efferent nerves in and around the posterior pulmonary plexus. In one embodiment the ablative agent is a neurolytic agent delivered in a gel. This approach may be utilized to treat other cardiac and pulmonary diseases.

A product cushioning structure for supporting a shock sensitive product in an outer packaging container having a plurality of container walls has at least two interconnected outer container-contacting panels for supporting and stabilizing the cushioning structure within the outer packaging container in at least two mutually perpendicular directions. At least two inner product-supporting panels support the shock sensitive product within the cushioning structure. Intermediate wall sections extend between the outer container-contacting panels and the inner product-supporting panels. The intermediate wall sections, outer container-contacting panels and inner product-supporting panels are made of a stiff paper-board material and are joined together to form box-like cells between the respective inner product-supporting panels and outer container-contacting panels. The cells are crushable to provide shock absorption support to the product during shock loading conditions. They are arranged in or foldable into a mutually angled configuration so that the cushioning structure provides shock absorption support to the product during shock loading conditions in at least two mutually perpendicular directions. The box-like cells may comprise an open box-like component formed by the intermediate wall sections and the inner product-supporting panels, and a unitary planar component formed by the outer container-contacting panels. The unitary planar component is bonded to the open box-like component at the periphery thereof to inhibit splaying of the intermediate wall sections in the presence of a shock loading in a direction normal to the inner product-supporting panels.

The present document describes an optical interconnect module for interfacing optical fibers. An optical interconnect module in accordance with an embodiment comprises a casing including a projection and an optical sub-assembly including an interlock portion for receiving the projection of the casing. The optical sub-assembly carries a plurality of optical fibers, and couples face to face with an optical cable assembly for aligning the corresponding fibers together. The optical cable assembly is usually provided in an optical cable connector, along with a spring which compresses when the optical cable connector is inserted in the optical interconnect module. The pressure provided by the spring is transmitted to the optical sub-assembly. The optical sub-assembly applies this pressure to the projection received in the notch thereof for maintaining a tight engagement with the optical cable assembly. With this arrangement it is possible shorten the optical sub-assembly, save circuit board space and reduce the length of the optical fibers, which results in optical interconnect modules which may achieve high speed short-reach optical data connectivity in a small form factor and at low cost.
