  • Patent number: 10909628
    Abstract: Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) may facilitate insurance-related tasks. UAVs may actively survey an area or be dispatched to the scene of a vehicle collision or crash, such as with an insured's permission, and collect data related to the vehicle collision or crash, such as vehicle data, insurer data, images, video, audio, weather conditions, etc., and transmit this data to a computing device. The computing device may be associated with an insurer and/or utilized by an insurer to perform insurance-related tasks, such as processing the data to assign fault to one or more parties or vehicles, such as autonomous vehicles, involved in the vehicle collision or crash, using the fault assignment to open or otherwise process an insurance claim, modifying a premium price, updating qualified discounts, etc. The drone data may also assist an insurer in opening an insurance claim by prepopulating fields associated with a submitted claim form.

  • Publication number: 20200368433
    Abstract: Systems and methods for mixing and/or reconstituting drugs are presented. A system may include an injection device, a vial, a needle, and a base station. The device has a chamber containing a first material. The vial has a chamber containing a second material. A drive unit of the base station moves the vial and/or the housing of the device relative to each other into an activated position. In the activated position, the needle is fluidly connected with the vial's chamber, and the drive unit is connected to a driver that moves the plunger in the axial direction of the device such that during fluid connection of the needle with the vial's chamber the first material is expelled from the device's chamber into the vial's chamber or the second material is expelled from the vial's chamber into the device's chamber.

  • Publication number: 20200355056
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and storage media are presented for operating a drill string within a well. Exemplary implementations may: detect, using one or more sensors, data representing an analog control command sequence; analyze the analog control command sequence; determine that the control command sequence represents a command to change an operational mode of the drill string from a first operational mode to a second operational mode; and transmit a signal to an actuator of the drill string, the signal representing an electronic command to activate the actuator in such a way as to change the drill string from the first operational mode to the second operational mode. In some embodiments, the analog control sequence may comprise a predetermined sequence of rotational inputs, vibrational inputs, pressure inputs, or a combination thereof.

  • Publication number: 20200348274
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for designing an efficient chromatographic separation process for a multicomponent mixture, such as a mixture of rare earth elements (REE), a production mixture from a pharmaceutical manufacturing or biotechnology production process, employing the concept of constant pattern mass transfer zone length (LMTZ,CP) in a non-ideal system having significant spreading of the concentration waves. This present invention can be used for ligand-assisted displacement chromatographic (LAD) as well as conventional displacement chromatographic separation processes. Since this method uses dimensionless groups, it can be used for the design of various scales of separation. This method may also find applications in a continuous process as a “multi-zone LAD process” using multiple columns.

  • Publication number: 20200330686
    Abstract: A mixing and/or reconstitution system reduces the possibility of user error and provides a well mixed and/or reconstituted drug in a short time. The system comprises a device containing a first material within a first chamber, a housing, and a plunger, the plunger comprising a second chamber containing a second material, wherein one of the first and the second material is a fluid, and a movable element with an electric, magnetic, or paramagnetic characteristic, wherein the second chamber is initially closed; and a base unit comprising a recess for accommodation of the device, a control unit, and an electromagnetic unit which is adapted to produce an electromagnetic field penetrating the recess, wherein the control unit can electrically operate the electromagnetic unit such that the element contained in the second chamber moves in a direction of the device determined by the electromagnetic field and fluidly communicates the first and second chambers.

  • Patent number: 10774971
    Abstract: A method for connecting sections of a multi-bore structure in water comprises connecting the sections to bring corresponding bores of the sections into mutual alignment while those bores are each closed by a plug that excludes the water from the bores. Then, with the sections connected and the corresponding bores sealed together in fluid communication with each other, the plugs are flushed away in a flushing fluid that flows along the communicating bores.

  • Publication number: 20200276388
    Abstract: The disclosure refers to a device, for example a cartridge, a syringe or an autoinjector, which reduces the possibility of user error and provides an easy and automatic operation during mixing and/or reconstitution. The device is adapted such that activation of the device causes movement one of a first piston and a second piston in second chamber in an axial direction of the device, thereby moving the other one of the first piston and the second piston into the same axial direction of the device, opening a fluid communication path between the second chamber and a first chamber of the device, and expelling a second material from the second chamber into the first chamber via the fluid communication path. The disclosure is further directed to a respective mixing and/or reconstitution method.

  • Patent number: 10729286
    Abstract: A blade driving assembly includes a blade-supporting shaft disposed to rotate parallel to, but laterally offset from, the axis of a food processor's drive outlet. A planetary drive system conveys rotational drive to the blade-supporting shaft, so that the blade-supporting shaft rotates around its own axis, thereby spinning the blade or blades, while at the same time the blade-supporting shaft rotates bodily around the drive-outlet axis, describing a locus, centered on the drive-outlet axis but separated therefrom by a radial distance corresponding to the lateral offset.
