  • Publication number: 20240168777
    Abstract: In the course of booking a vehicle rental on behalf of the claimant, a claim associate needs to submit a variety of information to multiple private hosted service APIs and public hosted service APIs. Conventionally, the claim associate must request, transcribe, and manually input this information on a client computing system during telephonic services, resulting in substantial silences over the phone call decreasing quality of the claimant's service experience. A multi-API interface is provided, which configures the client computing system to anticipate information which the claim associate will need, based on a type of claimant, to send to multiple APIs, assemble this information from a variety of data records, and present this information to the claim associate, using persistent interface elements and flow control elements allowing the claim associate to review and select information to send to multiple APIs with minimal interruption in the service flow of telephonic services.

  • Patent number: 11989832
    Abstract: A method for constructing a three-dimensional representation of an internal surface of a conduit comprises obtaining a plurality of images of the internal surface of the conduit, for example from a camera mounted on an inspection tool, constructing, from the plurality of images, a composite image of the internal surface, providing a shape model of the internal surface, constructing, using the shape model, a three-dimensional mesh of the internal surface, and constructing a three-dimensional representation of the internal surface by assigning a pixel value from the composite image to a corresponding node of the mesh. The three-dimensional representation may be derived from two or more sets of images obtained under different image acquisition conditions, such as different camera angles, lighting conditions or spectral sensitivities.

  • Patent number: 11980408
    Abstract: An intravascular catheter for peri-vascular and/or peri-urethral tissue ablation includes multiple needles advanced through supported guide tubes which expand with open ends around a central axis to engage the interior surface of the wall of the renal artery or other vessel of a human body allowing the injection an ablative fluid for ablating tissue, and/or nerve fibers in the outer layer or deep to the outer layer of the vessel, or in prostatic tissue. The system also includes means to limit and/or adjust the depth of penetration of the ablative fluid into and beyond the tissue of the vessel wall. The preferred embodiment of the catheter includes structures which provide radial and lateral support to the guide tubes so that the guide tubes open uniformly and maintain their position against the interior surface of the vessel wall as the sharpened injection needles are advanced to penetrate into the vessel wall.

  • Patent number: 11984362
    Abstract: A method of fabricating an integrated circuit includes forming a first opening having a first width and a second opening having a second width in a first dielectric layer over a silicon substrate. The openings expose the silicon substrate and the exposed silicon substrate is oxidized to form first and second LOCOS structures having a first thickness. A polysilicon layer is formed over the silicon substrate, so that the polysilicon layer fills the first and second openings. A blanket etch of the polysilicon layer is performed to remove at least a portion of the polysilicon layer over the second LOCOS structure while leaving the first LOCOS structure protected by the polysilicon layer. The silicon substrate under the second LOCOS structure is further oxidized such that the second LOCOS structure has a second thickness greater than the first thickness.
