  • Patent number: 10909765
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to systems and methods for providing various types of information to a vehicle driver. Such information can be used by the vehicle driver singularly or in conjunction with other information available to the vehicle driver in order to allow the driver to operate the vehicle in an increasingly safe manner and/or to reduce the likelihood of property damage and/or possible bodily injuries to the driver, etc. In some instances, such information is presented to the driver as an augmented reality environment such that the driver can “see through” objects that may be occluding the driver's vision.

  • Patent number: 10902331
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing visual allocation are provided herein that use models to determine states based on visual data and, based thereon, output feedback based on the determined states. Visual data is initially obtained by a visual allocation management system. The visual data includes eye image sequences of a person in a particular state, such as engaging in a task or activity. Visual features can be identified from the visual data, such that glance information including direction and duration can be calculated. The visual data, information derived therefrom, and/or other contextual data is input into the models, which correspond to states, to calculate probabilities that the particular state that the person is engaged in is one of the modeled states. Based on the state identified as having the highest probability, an optimal feedback, such as a warning or instruction, can be output to a connected devices, systems, or objects.

  • Publication number: 20200305453
    Abstract: Methods are provided for treating high solids concentrated milk products to delay gelation of the concentrated milk products by minimizing the rate at which the viscosity of the concentrates increases during cold storage. By another approach, the methods described herein are effective to substantially reduce the viscosity of the concentrated milk products. The methods described herein advantageously increase the length of time the high solids milk concentrates remain fluid and pumpable during refrigerated shelf-life. The high solids concentrated milk products treated with the methods provided herein include about 33 to about 43 percent total solids. By one approach, the high solids concentrated milk products have a pH of about 4.6 to about 6.7, and include salt at about 0.25 to about 6 percent by weight of the concentrate.
