  • Patent number: 10855062
    Abstract: A cabinet comprising an outer wall which encapsulates an internal space comprising electronic components, the outer wall having a rupture line forming a release wall portion which by rupturing of the rupture line in response to an increased pressure in the internal space can be released and thereby define an opening forming arc-vent for the internal space. To protect against penetration of objects of a predetermined size into the electronic components, the cabinet further comprises a ventilation-open inner lining arranged in the internal space to cover the opening. If arcing should occur, the increased pressure may rupture the line and the opening will allow venting. In this situation, the inner lining prevents against penetration.

  • Patent number: 10839610
    Abstract: An exemplary scene customization system detects a selection, by a user of an artificial reality device, of a customization scheme to be applied to an original immersive scene. The system generates a custom immersive scene based on an application of the selected customization scheme to the original immersive scene. This generating of the custom immersive scene includes identifying, within a dynamic volumetric model of the original immersive scene, a particular object that is of a particular object type and is included in the original immersive scene. This generating of the custom immersive scene also includes replacing, within the dynamic volumetric model and in accordance with the applied customization scheme, the particular object with a custom object that is predetermined within the applied customization scheme to correspond to the particular object type. The system also presents the custom immersive scene to the user by way of the artificial reality device.

  • Patent number: 10819967
    Abstract: An exemplary virtual reality media provider system differentiates static objects depicted in two-dimensional video data from dynamic objects depicted in the two-dimensional video data. Based on the differentiating of the static objects from the dynamic objects, the virtual reality media provider system generates dynamic volumetric models of the surfaces of the static objects and the dynamic objects. The virtual reality media provider system updates the dynamic volumetric models of the surfaces of the static objects with a lower regularity or on an as-needed basis, and the virtual reality media provider system separately updates the dynamic volumetric models of the surfaces of the dynamic objects with a higher regularity. The higher regularity is higher than the lower regularity and keeps the dynamic volumetric models of the surfaces of the dynamic objects up-to-date with what is occurring in the two-dimensional video data. Corresponding methods and systems are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10810791
    Abstract: An exemplary virtual reality media provider system receives two-dimensional (“2D”) video data for surfaces of first and second objects located in a natural setting. The 2D video data is captured by first and second capture devices disposed at different positions with respect to the objects. The system distinguishes the first object from the second object by performing a plurality of techniques in combination with one another. The plurality of techniques include determining that the first object is moving in relation to the second object; and determining that, from a vantage point of at least one of the different positions, a representation of the first object captured within the 2D video data does not overlap with a representation of the second object. Based on the received 2D video data and the distinguishing of the first and second objects, the system generates an individually-manipulable volumetric model of the first object.

  • Patent number: 10781790
    Abstract: A bulkhead assembly for a wind turbine blade is described, wherein a pressure relief conduit is provided at the bulkhead to allow for pressure to equalise across the bulkhead. This helps to prevent faults or cracks in the bulkhead assembly due to differences in pressure on either side of the bulkhead. Furthermore, liquid traps and/or filter media can be accommodated in the conduit to prevent the passage of liquids or other matter across the bulkhead.

  • Patent number: 10592509
    Abstract: The present disclosure involves systems, software, and computer implemented methods for using declarative rules for optimized access to data. One example method includes receiving a structured query language (SQL) query, the SQL query associated with at least one database table and at least one predicate. A determination is made as to whether the SQL query is associated with at least one declarative rule based on the at least one database table and the at least one predicate. In response to determining that the SQL query is associated with at least one declarative rule, the at least one associated declarative rule is applied, during optimization of the SQL query. The at least one declarative rule defines a transformation to the SQL query to be performed during query optimization. An updated SQL query is generated based on the applied at least one associated declarative rule and the updated SQL query is provided.

  • Patent number: 10436618
    Abstract: A field device for determining a measured variable and that also issues a measured value in the case that an error state is present. The field device includes a sensor unit, a signal outlet, and an output device. The output device issues a state signal and/or a measuring signal via the signal outlet, wherein the state signal is assigned to a state of the field device. Additionally, the output device fulfills a safety function in the case that the state of the field device arises and thereby issues both the state signal assigned to the state as well as the measuring signal. Furthermore, there is a method for communicating the presence of a state of a field device.

  • Publication number: 20190289964
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a shank adapted for being integrated into a shoe sole and for mounting a heel element, wherein said shank at its heel portion is adapted to be connected to the heel element and wherein said shank comprises an upper surface pointing towards the inner shoe. At least a part of the upper surface at the heel portion is cup-shaped and adapted for receiving sole material inside the cup when integrating said shank in said sole during moulding of said shoe sole. Thereby, due to the amount of sole material present in the heel portion, the sole material covers the means used for connecting the shank to the heel element. Thereby, based on the properties of the sole material, the heeled shoe becomes comfortable and flexible at the heel portion. The invention further relates to a sole for a shoe with a cup-shaped shank and more specifically to a shoe with a cup-shaped shank.
