  • Publication number: 20190139139
    Abstract: A system and method for automated securities trading is provided. The system includes a lead trader account database, a follower account database, and a trade determination system. Trade information is received from a lead trader and a listing of followers for the lead trader is retrieved from the lead account database. For each follower, their account at the follower account database is accessed to confirm that they desire to participate in the lead trader's trade and that they have enough funds to do so. The lead trader and follower's traders are then grouped together and traded as a single trade. The traded shares are then provided to the lead trader and followers at the average price of the trade.

  • Publication number: 20180313884
    Abstract: Evaluation method for a lightning protection system of a wind turbine with blades (P), the lightning protection system comprising a down conductor connected to earth and to each blade (P) by means of conductor plates (1, 2) embedded in the corresponding blade (P). The method is configured for determining the quality of the connections between the conductor plates (1, 2) and the blade (P) thereof and comprises injecting direct current (I) between two conductor plates (1, 2) of one and the same blade (P), a flow of current being generated through the segment of the blade (P) comprised between both conductor plates (1, 2), measuring the voltage (V) at measurement points (Pm) of said segment, comparing the voltages (V) to one another, and determining the quality of the connections between said conductor plates (1, 2) and said blade (P) depending on the result of said comparison. Associated evaluation system.

  • Patent number: 9557302
    Abstract: An ultrasound inspection roller provided with a wheel, a sensing system and a support for holding the sensing system inside the wheel, a wedge connected to the ultrasound sensing system at one end and provided with a curved profile at its other end facing the wheel, adapted to the curvilinear shape of the wheel, and a liquid of a density higher than 9.9*102 kg/mm3 placed inside the wheel such that the sensory system, the wheel and the wedge are acoustically coupled. The roller allows the early detection of problems during manufacturing of composites and the performance of corrective measures in real time, and assures a good coupling between the transducers and the material to be inspected in dry conditions.

  • Patent number: 8038058
    Abstract: This invention provides a system and method for authorizing automated value transfers from an account available to users who do not have a pre-existing trust, business or financial relationship. In an embodiment of the present invention, a Sender at a first location purchases a PIN Card at a point of sale, such as a retail location or a bank teller. The Sender contacts an intended Recipient at a remote location and discloses a Transfer PIN associated with the PIN Card, as well as the amount being transferred, to that intended Recipient. The Recipient needs only the Transfer PIN and a Cash Card to receive the money transfer at a participating remote location. To receive the value associated with the PIN Card, the Recipient inserts or swipes the Cash Card at an ATM and enters the Transfer PIN. An authorization system then authorizes the dispensing unit to dispense that value amount.

  • Patent number: 7580901
    Abstract: A transition costing program (TCP) uses standardized activity tasks (SAT), standard activity estimates (SAE) for each SAT, a transition costing estimator (TCE) to develop full time equivalent (FTE) values for transitioning a customer. The TCP functions in an engagement phase, a boarding phase, and end cost variance (ECV) analysis phase so that feedback is provided to validate or modify the SAE. In the engagement phase, the TCP selects the activities necessary to transition the customer from an SAT library and enters the SAT selections into the TCE. As the SAT selections are entered, the TCE populates a display with corresponding SAE value for each task. During transition, costs are monitored by SAE, the transition is completed and the actual costs for each task are compared with the SAE value for each SAT. When the comparison shows a variance, the TCP analyzes the variance and determines whether to modify the SAE value for the SAT under review.

  • Publication number: 20060178943
    Abstract: A remote ordering system including a universal in-store point-of-sale (POS) system deployed to allow a remote-ordering user to customize, pay and transmit a food order to a vending merchant and to provide means for transmitting to the user a confirmation of receipt of the food order in real time together with a merchant commitment to a precise pickup time, thereby facilitating food order fulfillment immediately upon user arrival at the committed pickup time. One aspect of the invention allows a “curb-side” remotely-ordering user to notify the vending restaurant of arrival for fulfillment through a telephone call to an interactive voice response element, which then transmits an arrival notification message to the restaurant.
