  • Patent number: 9846481
    Abstract: An image sensing apparatus has a light sensitive area and a control unit. The light sensitive area registers image data in response to an incoming amount of light, and is operable in an active mode wherein image data can be read out there from as well as in a standby mode wherein image data cannot be read out. The control unit produces a control signal setting the light sensitive area to operate in the active mode and the standby mode respectively in a cyclic manner during an operation period, which preferably encompasses multiple data frame read-outs of image data from the light sensitive area.

  • Patent number: 9804031
    Abstract: An IR camera includes: a thermal radiation capturing arrangement for capturing thermal radiation of an imaged view in response to input control unit(s) receiving user inputs from a user of the IR camera; a processing unit arranged to process the thermal radiation data in order for the thermal radiation data to be displayed by an IR camera display as thermal images; and an IR camera display arranged to display thermal images to a user of the IR camera. The processing unit is further arranged to determine at least one temperature reference value representing the temperature of the surrounding environment of the imaged view; and calculate at least one output power value indicative of an amount of energy dissipated in a part of the imaged view by using the temperature value of the thermal radiation data corresponding to said part of the imaged view and the at least one determined temperature reference value.

  • Publication number: 20170308606
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods that allow a database engine to access a non-relational document database and dynamically apply a schema that maps documents comprising semi-structured data into a relational data structure. In embodiments, mapping may be accomplished by parsing and analyzing a set of sample documents to empirically generate a normalized tabular schema. In embodiments, the schema accommodates format evolution and variability of documents having different structures and different sets of attributes is automatically executed in a background process without requiring user involvement. This normalization process eliminates the need to create unique modeling languages for semi-structured data. In embodiments, an SQL dialect may be used to join query results and combine the resulting document data with tables from different dimensional or relational databases to generate a combined result without the need to create additional temporary tables for non-conforming documents.

  • Patent number: 9495437
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes defining a slice of a dimensional database. The slice includes at least one dimension and at least one measurement and is expressable as a table. The method further includes building, in a structured query language (SQL) dialect, a single query that queries the slice and one or more non-dimensional databases. The SQL dialect represents the at least one dimension, the at least one measurement, and data attributes of the one or more non-dimensional databases. In addition, the method includes parsing the single query. The parsing includes generating a dimensional query for the dimensional database and a non-dimensional query for each of the one or more non-dimensional databases. Furthermore, the method includes executing the dimensional query on the dimensional database. Moreover, the method includes, for each non-dimensional database of the one or more non-dimensional databases, executing the non-dimensional query on the non-dimensional database.

  • Publication number: 20160224556
    Abstract: A system, method, and computer-readable medium for performing a predictive caching operation in which a hit rate is improved by pre executing statements that are predicted based upon previous use patterns. More specifically, by analyzing a stream of statements provided to a server, such as a database server, patterns of usage are detected and based upon these patterns, statements provided to the server are executed before the actual application executes the predicted statements. Thus the application executes faster because the data requested is already cached based upon the predictive execution.

  • Patent number: 9288060
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes enrolling a supplicant device as an authentication factor for a user. The enrolling includes storing a public key of an asymmetric key pair generated by an authentication application on the supplicant device. The method also includes receiving, from an access device, a request to access a service using an identity of the user. In addition, the method includes, responsive to the receiving, publishing an authentication code to the access device. The method further includes receiving an authentication package from the authentication application without contacting the authentication application. The authentication package includes a digital signature of the authentication code. The method additionally includes validating the digital signature using the public key. Moreover, the method includes, responsive to a determination that the validating is successful, allowing the access device to access the service.
