  • Patent number: 11478939
    Abstract: A position verification sensor produces a discrete output for determining an accuracy of mutual mechanical positioning with a key and includes: a substratum; a housing; a receiver pad that: receives contact with the key; produces a target output in contact with the key; and produces a null output in absence of contact with the key; an aperture cap having: a cap surface; and the keyway aperture that selectively communicates the key; and a compliant member that: rests in a primary position in an absence of the key disposed on the cap surface; receives the depression force from the aperture cap; reciprocatively depresses, from the primary position to a depressed position, in response to receiving the depression force and being pushed by the depression force from the key; and reciprocatively returns, from the depressed position to the primary position, when the key is removed from contact with the aperture cap.

  • Patent number: 11455229
    Abstract: A method for displaying differences between a first executable dataflow graph and a second executable dataflow graph includes comparing a specification of the first executable dataflow graph and a specification of the second executable dataflow graph, including at least one of identifying a particular node or link of the first dataflow graph that does not correspond to any node or link of the second dataflow graph; and identifying a first node or link of the first dataflow graph that corresponds to a second node or link of the second dataflow graph, and identifying a difference between the first node or link and the second node or link. The method includes formulating and displaying a graphical representation of at least some of the nodes or links of the first dataflow graph or the second dataflow graph, the graphical representation including a graphical indicator of at least one of the identified particular node or link the identified difference between the first node or link and the second node or link.

  • Publication number: 20220276920
    Abstract: Systems and methods are for executing, by a data processing system, a workflow to process results data indicating an output of a data quality test on data records by generating, responsive to receiving the results data and metadata describing the results data, a data quality issue associated with a state and one or more processing steps of the workflow to resolve a data quality error associated with the data quality test. Operations include generating a workflow for processing results data based a state specified by a data quality issue. Generating the workflow includes: assigning, based on the results data and the state of the data quality issue, an entity responsible for resolving the data quality error; determining, based on the metadata, one or more actions for satisfying the data quality condition specified in the data quality test; and updating the state associated with the data quality issue.

  • Patent number: 10941001
    Abstract: A grain facility has a grain receiving station and a grain transport line with a grain elevator, a distributor with at least one input spout, and at least one grain bin. The grain transport line moves grain from the grain receiving station to one of the at least one grain bins and the distributor directs the grain to a selected bin of the at least one grain bin. The grain facility further includes an optical sensing system having at least one optical sensor positioned in the grain transport line at or before the distributor, wherein the optical sensing system senses the type of grain in the grain transport line. A control system determines if the grain passing through the grain transport line is suitable for the selected grain bin and produces an alarm if the grain in the grain transport line is not suitable for the selected grain bin.

  • Patent number: 10896025
    Abstract: User input is received specifying components of a graph-based program specification. User input is received specifying links, at least some connecting an output port of an upstream component to an input port of a downstream component. The graph-based program specification is processed to identify one or more subsets of the components, including: identifying one or more subset entry points and one or more subset exit points that occur between components in different subsets based at least in part on data processing characteristics of linked components, and forming the subsets based on the identified subset entry points and exit points. A visual representation of the formed subsets is rendered within a user interface. Prepared code is generated for each formed subset that when used for execution by a runtime system causes processing tasks corresponding to the components in each formed subset to be performed.

  • Patent number: 10817310
    Abstract: A graph-based program specification includes components corresponding to tasks and directed links between ports of the components, including: a first type of link configuration defined by respective output and input ports of linked components, and a second type of link configuration defined by respective output and input ports of linked components. A compiler recognizes different types of link configurations and provides in a target program specification occurrences of a target primitive for executing a function for each occurrence of a data element flowing over a link of the second type. A computing node initiates execution of the target program specification, and determines at runtime, for components associated with the occurrences of the target primitive, an order in which instances of tasks corresponding to the components are to be invoked, and/or a computing node on which instances of tasks corresponding to the components are to be executed.

  • Patent number: 10772286
    Abstract: A climate control system (20) for an animal house (10) is configured by determining a minimum ventilation curve for required minimum ventilation. A plurality of ventilation stages is created based on the minimum ventilation curve and the plurality of ventilation fans (23) in the climate control system, each stage providing a percentage of the required minimum ventilation. Creating the stages includes prioritizing the ventilation fans to create a selection hierarchy and determining a minimum stage ventilation and a maximum stage ventilation for each stage. Ventilation fans are selected following the hierarchy that provides the desired percentage of the minimum required ventilation. An increment between a maximum stage ventilation and a minimum stage ventilation for the next higher stage is defined, wherein the minimum capacity level is a function of the minimum capacity of the group of fans added to the next higher stage and the maximum capacity for the next higher stage is determined based on the increment.
