  • Publication number: 20230009093
    Abstract: A system (10) for monitoring and/or controlling one or more chemical plant(s) (12) including at least one processing layer (14, 16, 32, 34), wherein the at least one processing layer (14, 16, 32, 34) is associated with a secure network (20) and communicatively coupled to an interface (26) for providing process or asset specific data or process applications to an external processing layer (30), wherein the at least one processing layer (14, 16, 32, 34) is configured to add a transfer tag to the process or asset specific data or to the process application and to provide the process or asset specific data or the process application based on the transfer tag.

  • Publication number: 20220343689
    Abstract: Computer implemented method for detecting a hand gesture of a user, comprising: (a) Receiving sequential logic models each representing a hand gesture. The sequential logic model maps pre-defined hand poses and motions each represented by a hand features record defined by discrete hand values each indicating a state of respective hand feature. (b) Receiving a runtime sequence of runtime hand datasets each defined by discrete hand values scores indicating current state hand features of a user's moving hand which are inferred by analyzing timed images depicting the moving hand. (c) Submitting the runtime hand datasets and the pre-defined hand features records in SSVM functions to generate estimation terms for the runtime hand datasets with respect to the hand features records. (d) Estimating which of the hand gestures best matches the runtime sequence depicted in the timed images by optimizing score functions using the estimation terms for the runtime hand datasets.

  • Publication number: 20070288515
    Abstract: A system for routing data in an automatic identification system includes an event management system (EMS), a real-time in-memory data structure (RIED) coupled to the EMS, the RIED for storing event information gathered by the EMS and a task management system (TMS) for ensuring that the RIED is updated by one transaction at a time. With this particular arrangement, a system for managing a large number of real-time events is provided. In one embodiment, the control system can be provided in a distributed hierarchical arrangement. The EMS of each control system can include filters which limit the amount of information provided to the next level in the hierarchy. In this manner the hierarchical control system network acts as a high volume data collector and processor. In some embodiments a level of the hierarchy can be removed spatially and/or temporally from an adjacent level in the hierarchy. This approach results in an intelligent network and also lends itself to scalability.
