  • Publication number: 20190332840
    Abstract: The parameters of an optical code are optimized to achieve improved signal robustness, reliability, capacity and/or visual quality. An optimization program can determine spatial density, dot distance, dot size and signal component priority to optimize robustness. An optical code generator employs these parameters to produce an optical code at the desired spatial density and robustness. The optical code is merged into a host image, such as imagery, text and graphics of a package or label, or it may be printed by itself, e.g., on an otherwise blank label or carton. A great number of other features and arrangements are also detailed.

  • Patent number: 9793984
    Abstract: A coherent receiver adapted to operate as an Optical Spectrum Analyzer (OSA) includes an optical front end adapted to receive an optical signal and to mix the optical signal with a local laser; a photodetector block coupled to the optical front end and adapted to receive an output of the optical front end and provide an output corresponding to spectral components of the optical signal; and a controller coupled to the optical front end and the photodetector block, wherein the controller is adapted to operate in an OSA mode to sweep the local laser across a portion of optical spectrum to perform an OSA measurement while not performing data demodulation.

  • Publication number: 20170290516
    Abstract: The technology described in this document can be embodied in a computer-implemented method that includes accessing, by one or more processors, data for a plurality of health-related parameters of an individual, and determining, by the one or more processors, a corresponding individual age-adjustment factor based on data for one or more of the plurality of health-related parameters. The age-adjustment factor computed for a given health-related parameter represents an estimated gain or loss in age as indicated by the data for the given health-related parameter. The method also includes combining, by the one or more processors, two or more of the individual age-adjustment factors to provide a combined age-adjustment factor, and determining, by the one or more processors, a physiological age of the individual based on the combined age-adjustment factor and a chronological age of the individual.

  • Patent number: 9485245
    Abstract: Aspects of the present invention provide machines, systems, and methods in which industrial control systems may be secured from compromise and/or disruption via authentication and firewall. In particular, an industrial controller may: randomly generate an exchange key and send the exchange key to a client device in response to a transaction request originating from the client device; combine the exchange key with a locally stored pass key to produce an authentication code; and compare a challenge key received from the client device to the authentication code to determine a match between the challenge key and the authentication code. A successful match between the challenge key and the authentication code may allow the client device to further access the industrial controller using a common industrial protocol (CIP), and a failed match between the challenge key and the authentication code may prevent the client device from further access to the industrial controller.
