A user, such as the driver of a vehicle, to retrieve information related to a point of interest (POI) near the vehicle by pointing at the POI or performing some other gesture to identify the POI. Gesture recognition is performed on the gesture to generate a target region that includes the POI that the user identified. After generating the target region, information about the POI can be retrieved by querying a server-based POI service with the target region or by searching in a micromap that is stored locally. The retrieved POI information can then be provided to the user via a display and/or speaker in the vehicle. This process beneficially allows a user to rapidly identify and retrieve information about a POI near the vehicle without having to navigate a user interface by manipulating a touchscreen or physical buttons.

A rake edge for a roof of a building includes a body having a lower portion and an upper portion. A fold is disposed on an inside end of the body. A downwardly extending side shield protrudes orthogonally from the lower portion. A shield edge protrudes outwardly from the side shield at an angle between 5 degrees and 90 degrees from a planar extent of the side shield. A shield edge underlap projects inwardly parallel with the shield edge. A trim portion extends over the upper portion. The trim portion is generally parallel with the upper portion and spaced a predetermined distance therefrom. A trim portion underlap is disposed between the upper portion and the trim portion.

A convertible pallet alternately displays and ships/transports associated product received thereon is disclosed herein. The pallet includes a substantially planar support member for receiving the associated product thereon. At least first and second wheels are mounted to the pallet. A convertible support surface is movably mounted to the pallet, the convertible support surface having (i) a first position where the convertible support surface receives loads imposed on the upper surface and transfers the loads directly to an associated surface, and (ii) a second position where the wheels extend outwardly from the lower surface for engagement with the associated surface so that loads imposed on the upper surface are transferred to the associated surface through the wheels and for converting the pallet into a movable cart.

An energy saving alternate current (AC) series voltage regulator comprises an AC high frequency (HF) series voltage buck power regulator, a bypass contactor (K1), a bidirectional AC semiconductor device (S1) connected in parallel with the bypass contactor and a control circuitry. Under the condition of an input AC mains voltage (Vin) drops below a specified and set optimum energy savings voltage or a lower selected voltage point, the control circuitry transitions both the slow bypass contactor and the fast bidirectional AC semiconductor device, then the AC high frequency (HF) series voltage buck power regulator are switched out to save the AC high frequency (HF) series voltage buck power regulator internal power electronics usage. Under this condition, the lower input AC mains voltage is directly delivered to an electrical load by the contactor bypass system, hence achieving more energy savings.
