  • Patent number: 11422833
    Abstract: The invention provides a system and method that automatically generates a user interface (HMI) based on a selection of spreadsheet cells. The spreadsheet controls operations within the processor(s) of one or more vision system cameras. After selecting a range of cells in the spreadsheet, the user applies the system and method by pressing a button, or using a menu command that results in an automatically generated HMI with appropriate scaling of interface elements and a desired layout of such elements on the associated screen. Advantageously, the system and method essentially reduces the user's workflow to two steps, selecting spreadsheet cells and generating the HMI around them. The generated HMI runs in a web browser that can be instantiated on a user device, and communicates directly to a vision system processor(s). Data can pass directly between the user interface running in a web browser and the vision system processor(s).

  • Patent number: 11416158
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer media are described for memory-efficient unarchiving. Data items can be archived and removed from primary data store over time. An archive block containing both a data item of interest and additional data items can be located. The data item of interest, as well as the additional data, can be loaded into a secondary data store. The data item of interest can then be extracted from the secondary data store and reloaded into the primary data store. The secondary data store can then be cleared. Memory-efficient unarchiving more efficiently uses computing resources and unarchives only the data that is needed.

  • Publication number: 20220222331
    Abstract: Our Names in physical and real world have transformed into ‘username’s in virtual digital world. Anything that we need to access in digital world asks us for a ‘username’, which can be user selected (like an e-mail address) or provided to a user (like an employee ID/Number). This ‘username’ has indeed become a SuperName, giving access to restricted areas, based on privileges, links to other services as well. So, to a cybercriminal, if a ‘username; is known, more than half the job is done. And once corresponding password is cracked, the whole digital identity lies threadbare. Damages done through transactions of such unauthorized access may get quantified, but dent to privacy is far more damaging.
