  • Patent number: 12031668
    Abstract: A system for locating a first component with respect to a second component. The system includes a bracket and a coupling member. The bracket defines a base wall and a side wall. The side wall extends from the base wall and defines an end remote to the base wall. The side wall defines a thickness and a length spanning from the base wall to the end. The coupling member is fastened to the base wall, and is configured to couple the base wall with the first component. The side wall is configured to be brought into contact with the second component to space and locate the second component with respect to the first component by at least one of the thickness defined by the side wall or at least a portion of the length defined by the side wall.

  • Publication number: 20240126566
    Abstract: Disclosed embodiments are directed at systems, methods, and architecture for providing execution order and execution for plugins installed on an API gateway associated with a microservices application. In application architectures where features of microservices are implemented as plugins and migrated to an API gateway, the relevant APIs are able to be built lighter weight than otherwise. However, the migration of the features to plugins introduces the potential for error states in the microservice application. To resolve the potential issues, the API gateway takes into consideration a set of native instructions in each of the plugins to determine the execution order thereof. The execution order is determined dynamically in response to requests by the APIs of the microservice application.

  • Patent number: 11516872
    Abstract: Various systems, mediums, and methods may involve a bridge configured to communicate with a number of sites, such as fuel sites and/or restaurant sites. For example, a system may determine a mobile device is associated with a given fuel site, possibly located at the given fuel site, among a number of other fuel sites. Further, the system may determine one or more connections of the bridge that may be configured to communicate with a site component of the fuel site. As such, the system may transmit fuel data to the mobile device based on the one or more connections with the site component. Thus, the mobile device may display an indication of fuel available at the fuel site.

  • Patent number: 10919800
    Abstract: Methods are disclosed for planarisation of a coated glass substrate by deposition of a silazane based layer thereon. Coated substrates according to the invention exhibit improved properties in terms of reduced roughness, lower haze and higher visible light transmission and the coated surface may be exposed to the external environment, for example as surface 1 or surface 4 of a double glazing unit. The resulting smooth surface is less susceptible to marking and scratch damage, and offers enhanced surface energy (improved hydrophobicity).
