  • Patent number: 8330646
    Abstract: A number of apparatuses are provided, for sensing and/or emitting energy along one or more desired apparatus line of sights (LOS) with respect to the respective apparatus. In at least one embodiment, the apparatus includes an assembly that is rotatably mounted on a base with respect to a switching axis. The assembly has two or more sensing/emitting units, each having a respective sensing/emitting unit line of sight (ULOS). Each sensing/emitting unit has an operative state, wherein the respective unit ULOS is pointed along a LOS of the apparatus for sensing and/or emitting energy along the LOS, and a corresponding inoperative state, where the respective unit ULOS is pointed along a direction different from this LOS. A switching mechanism enables switching between the sensing/emitting units to selectively bring a desired sensing/emitting unit exclusively into its respective operative state while concurrently bringing a remainder of the sensing/emitting units each to a respective non-operative state.

  • Patent number: 8291066
    Abstract: The invention provides a method for learning and identification of message types in a network in which the learning and identification is based solely upon information contained in messages in the network. In one embodiment, the method includes comparing a current message with one or more previously defined message structures and applying a comparison method in order to infer whether the structure of the current message conforms to any one of the previously defined message structures. The invention also provides a method for classifying a collection of messages input or output from a computational node in which the set of messages is portioned into subsets of similar messages, and a structure of the messages of each subset is characterized. The invention further provides a method for inferring causal relations between a message type input to a computational node in a network and message type output from the computational node in the network using one or more statistical tests.

  • Patent number: 8290579
    Abstract: Disclosed are devices and methods for administration of charged drugs to tissues of the oral cavity and for intra-tissue administration. The disclosed drug applicator for intra-tissue use includes an introducer such as a needle or catheter that is adapted to penetrate into a living tissue. The introducer has a drug-providing portion, and the applicator has current-generating element to pass through it an electrical current. Passing an electrical current through the drug-providing portion causes the drug to eject into treated tissue.

  • Patent number: 8267419
    Abstract: An extended forward tow, single rail saddlemount or tow bar is disclosed. The tow bar allows a first towing truck to mount a second truck, facing forward, behind the first truck, in order to tow the second truck. The tow bar allows the towed truck to face forward during transport, thus allowing for normal loads and stresses of movement on the towed truck, rather than the much higher high wind loads and unusual stresses imposed by a rear-ward facing tow. The saddlemount is also designed to minimize the required vertical rise on the towed truck, which also avoids additional stresses during loading and unloading onto the towing truck. Lower stress is achieved by using a pivot pin nearer the towed truck rather than the usual pivot pin or king pin on the towing truck.

  • Patent number: 8265376
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for generating a digital model of at least a part of an object referenced to a global coordinate system. An initial digital model, referenced to a local coordinate system associated with the optical device and representative of the respective part, is provided using an optical device at a relative location with respect to the object. The optical device has a plurality of visually exposed optical markers, at known locations with respect to the optical device and referenced to a marker coordinate system. The location of the optical device with respect to an external camera arrangement is determined, based on relating the relative locations of the markers with respect to one another, as they appear from a viewpoint of the external camera arrangement, to their relative locations as referenced to the marker coordinate system. The camera viewpoint is at a known location referenced to the global coordinate system.

  • Patent number: 8236849
    Abstract: The increase in antibacterial resistance has created the demand for new antibiotics. The present invention relates to a more potent antibiotic that targets the enzyme glutamate racemase from known glutamate racemase inhibitors. Glutamate racemase catalyses the interconversion of L-glutamate to D-glutamate, making D-glutamate available, which is required for bacterial peptidoglycan biosynthesis. Knockout mutations have shown glutamate racemase to be necessary for bacterial cell survival and, before the present invention, no antibiotic on the market targeted this enzyme. The present invention relates to new, ligand based glutamate racemase inhibitors, developed using software to extract a pharmacophore model from a group of known glutamate racemase inhibitors. Forty-seven (47) known inhibitors were collected from the literature and several pharmacophore models were extracted therefrom.
