  • Patent number: 10251347
    Abstract: A method for generating digital models of potential crop yield based on planting date, relative maturity, and actual production history is provided. In an embodiment, data representing historical planting dates, relative maturity values, and crop yield is received by an agricultural intelligence computer system. Based on the historical data, the system generates spatial and temporal maps of planting dates, relative maturity, and actual production history. Using the maps, the system creates a model of potential yield that is dependent on planting date and relative maturity. The system may then receive actual production history data for a particular field. Using the received actual production history data, a particular planting date, and a particular relative maturity value, the agricultural intelligence computer system computes a potential yield for a particular field.

  • Patent number: 10223175
    Abstract: A method, system, and/or computer program product modify a hardware device based on a time series of data. One or more processors standardize a time series of data received from sensors that are monitoring a hardware device. The processor(s) determine a time delta that measures how long a disruption in the time series lingers after an event that is detected by the sensors, and use the time delta to establish time ranges before, during and after each event. The processor(s) determine which events represented by the time series of data are significant, and then reduce a number of significant events described by the time series of data to a predefined level by removing events that have tags not found associated with other events in the time series of data to generate a modified time series of data, which is used to modify the hardware device.

  • Patent number: 10185791
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for estimating initial stresses in and eigenstrains of a material. The system may receive measured geometric data including measurements of a material before and after the application of a manufacturing process thereto. The measurements may indicate a residual stress in a coupon after application of the manufacturing process. Estimated linear elastic strains may be calculated in respective opposing sides of the coupon based on the measured geometric data. A linear elastic reaction of the material to the manufacturing process may be calculated based at least in part on the estimated linear elastic strains. The system may then calculate an estimated initial stress in the material as a sum of the residual stress in the coupon and the linear elastic reaction of the material, and calculate an estimated eigenstrain of the material based at least in part on the estimated initial stress in the material.
