  • Patent number: 11804240
    Abstract: Methods and systems for identifying human activity in a building. An illustrative method includes storing one or more room sound profiles for a room in a building based at least in part on background audio captured in the room without a presence of humans in the room. Background noise filters are generated for the room based on the room sound profiles. Real time audio may be captured from the room and filtered with at least one of the background noise filters. The filtered real time audio may be analyzed to identify one or more sounds associated with human activity in the room. A situation report may be generated based at least in part on the identified one or more sounds associated with human activity in the room and transmitted for use by a user.

  • Patent number: 11599507
    Abstract: A file system may include an object storage, a merged index, and a distributed database. When a file is stored in the file system, the file may be converted to an object and be stored in the object storage. The deduplication index of the file may be stored in the distributed database. The namespace metadata of the file may be stored in the merged index. The merged index generates namespace entries of the file when the file is created, deleted, and/or modified. A namespace entry may be associated with a specific file and may include a creation version and a deletion version. When a file is deleted or modified, instead of modifying the existing namespace entries, new entries associated with different versions and including different creation or deletion versions are created. The status of a file may be monitored by one or more entries associated with a file.

  • Patent number: 11449403
    Abstract: A method and system for detecting faults in a communication interface is disclosed. The communication interface is connected to a field device and a device bus comprising generating periodic diagnostic pulse by a programing unit. The programming unit is communicatively connected to the controller and a controller interface and provides the diagnostic pulse to a multiplexer to periodically apply the diagnostic pulses from the programming unit to a first winding of a transformer. The programming unit provides the diagnostic pulse to the isolation unit. A sensing unit senses a voltage drop across a sense resistor, the sensing unit having an input connected to the sense resistor and an output connected to the programming unit. The sensing unit communicates a sense signal based on the comparison to the programming unit, and switches from a primary or a secondary module to the other based on the sense signal.
