  • Patent number: 11091809
    Abstract: Methods and compositions are provided for the identification of a molecular diagnostic test for cancer. The test identifies cancer subtypes that have an up-regulation or a down-regulation in biomarker expression related to angiogenesis and vascular development. The present invention can be used to determine whether patients with cancer are clinically responsive or non-responsive to a therapeutic regimen prior to administration of any anti-angiogenic agent. This test may be used in different cancer types and with different drugs that directly or indirectly affect angiogenesis or angiogenesis signalling. In addition, the present invention may be used as a prognostic indicator for certain cancer types. In particular, the present invention is directed to the use of certain combinations of predictive markers, wherein the expression of the predictive markers correlates with responsiveness or non-responsiveness to a therapeutic regimen.

  • Patent number: 11081883
    Abstract: A device comprising at least two controllable reactance elements (1) arranged to compensate a single phase-to-earth fault current in a power network with a power transformer (3). The at least two controllable reactance elements (1) are each connected with one side to two different voltages of a three phase voltage source which is synchronous with the power network, and that the reactance elements with their other side are jointly connected to the neutral (N) of the power network or its equivalent. The reactance elements are individually controllable by a control unit (2) designed to control the neutral voltage of the power transformer (3) or its equivalent with respect to amplitude and phase in relation to the power transformer's own voltage system. A method in relation to the device is also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11035907
    Abstract: In a multi-phase power grid fed by a power source, earth fault (460) is located by means of a power supply source synchronized with the power grid, which is connected between a zero point of the grid and earth. In a fault current compensation mode (420), a control unit controls the alternating voltage source to compensate for any ground fault current in the power grid to a value below a threshold level. In a fault detecting mode (430), the control unit gradually adjusts the output voltage of the alternating voltage source with respect to amplitude and/or phase angle (440). A change of zero-sequence current and zero-sequence admittance between the alternating voltage source and a fault location is measured (450) by means of at least one detector. The at least one detector is communicatively connected to the control unit and reports recorded measured values representing zero-sequence current and/or zero-sequence admittance to the control unit.

  • Patent number: 11002541
    Abstract: A Position and Orientation Measurement Engine (POME) is a mobile camera system that can be used for accurate indoor measurement (e.g., at a construction site). The POME uses a plurality of cameras to acquire images of a plurality of targets. If locations of the plurality of targets are precisely known, images of the targets can be used to determine a position of the POME in relation to the plurality of targets. However, to precisely determine locations of the plurality of targets can be time consuming and/or use expensive equipment. This disclosure discusses how to use a camera system with an electronic distance measuring unit to determine locations of the plurality of targets.

  • Patent number: 10908284
    Abstract: A device for optically measuring the distance from a reflective target object is disclosed. The device has a beam source, a detector, a beam shaping system with a transmission optical system and a reception optical system, and a laser beam shaping element that can be arranged in the path of the laser beam.

  • Patent number: 10907964
    Abstract: A method for transmitting objects onto a boundary surface by a system comprising a marking device having a print field, a locator device, and a control device is provided. The method includes selecting a first object to be marked having a first starting position and first target coordinates. The dimensions of the first object are bigger than the dimensions of the print field. The method also includes determining by the locator device a current position of the marking device, and determining by the control device a current print field of the marking device based on the current position of the marking device. The method also includes comparing by the control device the first starting position of the first object to the current print field of the marking device.

  • Patent number: 10823565
    Abstract: A method for measuring a measurement distance between a rotating laser, which emits a first laser beam that can be rotated about a rotational axis and/or a stationary second laser beam, and a laser receiver, which has a detection field with a measurement function. The rotating laser is inclined in a direction of inclination by an inclination angle. The position of incidence of the inclined laser beam on the detection field of the laser receiver is determined as a measurement point. The distance between the measurement point and a zero position of the detection field is stored as the height, and the measurement distance between the rotating laser and the laser receiver is determined using the inclination angle and the height.

  • Publication number: 20200151848
    Abstract: A system and method for surface profiling via a projection system, such as a position enabled projector. By way of example, a three-dimensional representation of a physical object, such as an uneven surface of the object, may be generated and profiled. The three-dimensional representation may be a 3D point cloud, a surface mesh, or any other suitable type of representation. A two-dimensional image to be projected onto the surface may undergo an image transformation based on the generated 3D representation of the surface. The transformed image is then projected onto the surface, where the image points projected are at their true positions with true scale. Moreover, the projected image may be automatically updated when the projector is moved to a new position.
