  • Publication number: 20200397153
    Abstract: This disclosure presents a product display and merchandising device, system and method that may include multiple such product displays and merchandising devices, and a method for dispensing products to customers using such product display and merchandising device. The merchandising system may efficiently utilize storage space and provide an aesthetic display by automatically aligning different products to a front display surface. The merchandising system may use multiple holders or clips on a conveyor belt to hang and display products. A customer may pull and remove a front piece of the products. As the customer pulls the front piece of merchandise or product, the action moves the conveyor belt and brings a next piece of products forward, to the position that the front piece of the product previously occupied. As such, the merchandising system may enable customers to freely remove products and maintain a tidy and neat display of the products.

  • Patent number: 10721248
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, systems and articles of manufacture to detect steganographically hidden content in a media file are disclosed. An example system includes a media classifier to determine type of a media file, and a detector to apply a detection technique to the media file. The detector selects the detection technique from a plurality of steganographically-based detection techniques based on the media file type. The system also includes a remediator to apply a remediation technique to the media file based on whether the detector detects steganographically hidden content in the media file.

  • Publication number: 20180035486
    Abstract: An offset is monitored which is applied by at least one access node (100) of a cellular network to adapt a signal quality value determined for a radio connection to a communication device (10). The adapted signal quality value is applied in a first control loop to select, a modulation and coding scheme for the radio connection. The offset is adapted in a second control loop, starting from an initial value and depending on feedback information concerning transmissions on the radio connection. Depending on the monitored offset, the initial value of the offset to be applied by the at least one access node (100) with respect to further radio connections to communication devices is determined.

  • Patent number: 9816437
    Abstract: This is a system that stores energy by compressing atmospheric air and confining it in tanks or caverns, combining the thermodynamic cycle followed by the atmospheric air (Brayton cycle) with another thermodynamic cycle followed by an auxiliary fluid, that is confined in the same cavern within a membrane, following two sections of a Rankine cycle, one during the air compression and entry into the cavern process and the other during the air outlet and turbining process, using heat from the exhaust gases from the turbine as a heat source for an additional Rankine cycle, and being able to use the tanks or caverns for making an extra constant volume heating of compressed air and/or of the auxiliary fluid.

  • Publication number: 20170045198
    Abstract: The invention relates to an optical system for single-chip or multi-chip LED lamps and luminaires, with heat sink and trim body, consisting of a glass lens which has various geometric shapes having a perimeter rim on the circular base thereof and a rubber seal of matching size via which the lens is inserted, optionally including a self-adhesive translucent polymer vinyl filter on the base of the lens, a trim having a special design in the shape of a top hat and a partially or completely translucent planar glass panel attached under the flange of said trim. The structure of the lens enables the perfect coupling thereof by fitting between the heat sink and the trim body, and can be used for manufacturing novel LED luminaires and modules, or for adapting existing LED luminaires and modules on the market, achieving, through the geometry of the lens, the filter and the planar glass panel, improved efficiency and light quality that is adequate for each specific use.
