  • Publication number: 20170284903
    Abstract: Machine health can be monitored using multiple sensors. For example, a computing device can determine a target sensor to monitor from among multiple sensors associated with the machine. The computing device can determine magnitude values for a particular component of a time series associated with the target sensor. The computing device can generate a dataset including the magnitude values for the particular component of the time series and the sensor measurements from the multiple sensors. The computing device can generate a model using the dataset. The computing device can then receive additional sensor-measurements from the multiple sensors and use the model to determine a predicted magnitude-value for the particular component of the time series based on the additional sensor-measurements. The computing device can use the predicted magnitude-value to identify an anomaly with the machine.

  • Publication number: 20170270089
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are presented for flexibly building a dynamic report using a heterogeneous mix of dimensions, segments, and metrics. Within a report building tool a user may introduce any number of dimensions and segments at any point within a generated report. Further within the report building tool, a user may break down existing dimensions and segments within a report with nested dimensions and segments, which may be added without limits on a nesting level. Given a generated report, a user may pivot the generated report, where the pivot includes pivoting any heterogeneous combination of dimensions, segments, and metrics within the generated report defined along each axis. Further, the pivot operation maintains the relative groupings and nestings of dimensions, dimension items, segments, and metrics in going from a column to a row or from a row to a column.

  • Patent number: 9652723
    Abstract: A computing device predicts a probability of a transformer failure. An analysis type indicator defined by a user is received. A worth value for each of a plurality of variables is computed. Highest worth variables from the plurality of variables are selected based on the computed worth values. A number of variables of the highest worth variables is limited to a predetermined number based on the received analysis type indicator. A first model and a second model are also selected based on the received analysis type indicator. Historical electrical system data is partitioned into a training dataset and a validation dataset that are used to train and validate, respectively, the first model and the second model. A probability of failure model is selected as the first model or the second model based on a comparison between a fit of each model.

  • Patent number: 8477027
    Abstract: A wireless sensor system for detecting electrical power lines in proximity to equipment includes a base station mounted in proximity to an operator of the equipment and a wireless sensor. The wireless sensor detects the presence of power lines by sensing an electrical field generated by the power lines and includes an accelerometer which senses motion of the equipment. The wireless sensor communicates data to the base station. The base station presents at least one alarm to the operator when the wireless sensor detects an electrical field with a magnitude which exceeds a selectable threshold and silences the least one alarm if no motion above a predetermined threshold is sensed for a predetermined period of time.

  • Patent number: 7938413
    Abstract: A knee scooter includes a substantially V-shaped chassis formed by a pair of extensions joined together at a vertex. At the vertex, the extensions form an angle of about sixty degrees. Further, the extensions establish a foot-space in the interior of the angle and define a chassis centerline that bisects the angle. An adjustment tube is selectively engageable with the first extension of the chassis to orient the adjustment tube substantially perpendicular to the plane of the chassis. Further, engagement with the first extension off-sets the adjustment tube from the centerline of the chassis. In use, a user rests one knee on the seat while propelling the knee scooter with his/her other leg in the foot-space.
