  • Patent number: 10965573
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for analyzing a user session within an online environment includes receiving, by a path analysis computer system, usage data related to a user session within an online environment, wherein the usage data includes a plurality of events occurring within the user session, and generating, by the path analysis computer system, a plurality of user paths for the user session based on the usage data, including generating a separate user path beginning with each of the plurality of events. Each of the user paths is generated by selecting one of the plurality of events as a starting event, and arranging the plurality of events subsequent to the starting event in order of occurrence, such that the user path includes the starting event and each of the subsequent events up to and including a final event.

  • Publication number: 20200392827
    Abstract: A method for optimizing pressure exchange includes providing a first pressure exchange system comprising an energy recovery device (ERD). A second system supplies high-pressure fluid, energized by a positive displacement pump, to the ERD. A third system supplies low-pressure fluid to the ERD. The first system energizes the low-pressure fluid with the high-pressure fluid to form a high-pressure fracking fluid, which is delivered from the first system to a well-head. A rate of required flow is input into a control system, which determines a rate of flow of the high-pressure fluid, a rate of flow of the low-pressure fluid, and an actual rate of flow of the fracking fluid at the well-head. The control system then adjusts to equilibrium: the rate of flow of the high-pressure fluid based on the actual rate of flow; and the rate of flow of the low-pressure fluid based on the actual rate of flow.

  • Publication number: 20200378147
    Abstract: A tent (10) comprised of two panels (12, 14) are joined at their tops (16) but which have free lower ends resting on the ground. The tent (10) is maintained in its vertical position by a pair of elongated rods (22, 24) on the inside of each side panel that are arranged in an X configuration. The ends of the rods are positioned in pockets (26, 28, 30, 32, 34) provided in the interior of the four corners of each side panel and are somewhat rigid but capable of flexing outwardly to provide structural support for the side panels. Adjustment straps (40, 42, 44) along the vertical edges of the side panels are used to adjust the tension on the rods. In a second embodiment (110) only one side panel (112) is provided and a vertical pole (160, 162) is used to support the top of the panel. The slide panel (112) is also provided with crossbars in an X configuration. The vertical angle of the vertical support pole (160, 162) can be changed to adjust the height of the lean-to.

  • Patent number: 10802657
    Abstract: The disclosed computer-implemented method for determining a proximity status between electrodes may include detecting an amount of electrical charge an electrode among other electrodes that are communicatively coupled to an artificial reality device. The method may further include determining, based on the detected amount of electrical charge at the electrode, a mutual capacitance measurement that indicates an amount of mutual capacitance between the other electrodes. The method may also include determining, based on the mutual capacitance measurement, a relative proximity status between the electrodes, where the relative proximity status indicates a degree to which the electrodes are in proximity with each other. The method may further include providing the determined relative proximity status between the electrodes as an input to the artificial reality device. Various other methods, systems, and computer-readable media are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20200221835
    Abstract: A combined umbrella and canopy (10) that provides the advantages of both of these devices for providing maximum shade. The umbrella portion (12) is substantially similar to a standard beach umbrella having a vertical pole (16) with spokes or ribs (22, 24, 26, 28) extending radially outwardly adjacent the top (20) for supporting a fabric cover (30). The fabric cover (30) defines a front (32) and back (34) and at least two sides of the umbrella. The back (34) of the umbrella includes an additional length of fabric (36) that extends horizontally rearwardly and then curves downwardly and terminates in two spaced apart ends (38, 40). Each end includes a pocket (42, 44) that can be filled with sand to weigh the same down to maintain the ends on the beach. The additional fabric (36) is essentially a canopy (14). The umbrella structure (12) provides better support for the forward end of the canopy and prevents the same from collapsing when the wind conditions change.
