  • Publication number: 20210130258
    Abstract: Provided herein is a unique process that prepares a saturated hydrocarbon mixture with well-controlled structural characteristics that address the performance requirements driven by the stricter environmental and fuel economy regulations for automotive engine oils. The process allows for the branching characteristics of the hydrocarbon molecules to be controlled so as to consistently provide a composition that has a surprising CCS viscosity at ?35° C. (ASTM D5329) and Noack volatility (ASTM D5800) relationship. The process comprises providing a specific olefinic feedstock, oligomerizing in the presence of a BF3 catalyst, and hydroisomerizing in the presence of a noble-metal impregnated, 10-member ring zeolite catalyst.

  • Patent number: 10996839
    Abstract: The techniques disclosed herein improve existing computing systems by providing consistent interaction models during communication sessions. A system configured according to the disclosure presented herein can improve user engagement during communication sessions and conserve computing resources by enabling users to define arrangements of display areas in a user interface (UI) for presenting content during a communication session and to utilize the same pre-defined arrangement during multiple communication sessions. The arrangement can be presented to all or some of the participants in a communication session. By providing a consistent arrangement of display areas that render content to participants in communication sessions, the participants can be more engaged and productive, thereby improving human-computer interaction and conserving computing resources.

  • Patent number: 10988146
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing speed thresholds for a fleet of vehicles are disclosed. Input is used to provide associations between particular weather-relation conditions (such as rain) and arithmetic operations, that may be used to determine a current speed threshold as a function of a local posted speed limit at the current location of a vehicle. The current speed threshold is subsequently used to detect whether vehicles are exceeding the current speed threshold.

  • Publication number: 20210120001
    Abstract: The present disclosure pertains to systems and methods of restricting access to devices utilizing tokens. In some embodiments, a system may include a user requesting a token, ensuring the user requesting a token has the permission to request the token and is not the user approving the token. In some embodiments, the system may include the user granting the token, wherein the user granting the token is not the user receiving the token. The system ensures that the user accessing the device has the permission to access the device. Additionally, the system decreases the opportunities for insider attacks and increases the resistance to credential theft attacks. Further, the system increases the accountability for changes and the ability to review changes.

  • Publication number: 20210119795
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed herein relating to the secure configuration of intelligent electronic devices. Intelligent electronic devices are used in electric power generation and transmission systems for protection, control, automation, and/or monitoring of equipment. The use of tokens and token-based digital signatures in the configuration process of intelligent electronic devices reduces the likelihood of malicious acts or unintended errors. Tokens distributed to engineers, technicians, intelligent electronic devices, computing devices, and/or software decrease the likelihood of errors being introduced in the configuration process.

  • Publication number: 20210119946
    Abstract: A system and method directed to determining one or more polls that a user may have missed during a period of inactivity is provided. Initially, a polling system may determine that a user is now active and may determine one or more polls that were created for or assigned to a user, or a group to which the user belongs, during the period of inactivity. The polling system may then surface a notification and/or an input window such that a user may provide polling input. In some instances, a user may have missed multiple polls; the polls presented to the user may be based on recent user activity and/or whether such missed polls are still live, or open.

  • Publication number: 20210117926
    Abstract: A system and method of displaying a graphical element associated with a poll in a calendar view is provided. Initially, a polling system may determine that a response from a user has not been provided to a poll event. Accordingly, poll information associated with the poll event may be received, where the poll information may indicate a start and end time of a poll. A time slot based on the poll information may be determined which may cause a graphical element for the poll event to be displayed in the calendar view of the user at the determined time slot. In some instances, the graphical element may be provided when a user has missed or otherwise has not provided input into a poll event.

  • Patent number: 10970547
    Abstract: The techniques disclosed herein improve the efficiency of a system by providing intelligent agents for managing data associated with objects that are displayed within mixed-reality and virtual-reality collaboration environments. Individual agents are configured to collect, analyze, and store data associated with individual objects in a shared view. The agents can identify real-world objects and virtual objects discussed in a meeting, collect information about each object and generate recommendations for each object based on the collected information. The recommendations can suggest modifications to the objects, provide resources for obtaining or modifying the objects, and provide actionable information allowing users to reach a consensus regarding an object. The data can be shared between different communication sessions without requiring users to manually store and present a collection of content for each object.

  • Patent number: 10968070
    Abstract: An apparatus for tensioning and threading an optical fiber includes a first roller, a second roller, a belt that wraps around the first and second rollers, and a third roller. The belt may be in direct physical contact with the first and second rollers. The third roller may be movable between an engaged and a disengaged configuration relative to the belt. Alternatively, the first roller, second roller, and belt may be movable between the engaged and the disengaged configuration relative to the third roller. Actuation from the disengaged to the engaged configuration captures an optical fiber between the third roller and the belt.

  • Patent number: 10951947
    Abstract: The disclosed system implements techniques to identify activity in which attendees to a communication session likely have a greater interest. Prior to commencement of a communication session or during the communication session, the techniques enable a list of attendees to a communication session to be designated as a group for which detected activity has a priority with respect to being displayed. The designated list of attendees is a subset of a total number of attendees to the communication session. The system monitors streams associated with individual attendees on the list to detect an occurrence of a preset target event. The system configures a portion of a graphical user interface of the communication session to accentuate the stream that includes the occurrence of the preset target event.

  • Patent number: 10942633
    Abstract: A tool for interacting with a rendered environment is configured to render a representation of a real-world environment. Input data is received that is indicative of a position for a zoom window to be placed within the representation. The zoom window is rendered at the position within the representation and has a size that is determined based on one or more criteria. Within the zoom window, a magnified view of a portion of the representation is rendered that is proximate to the position of the zoom window. Input data is received that is indicative of a first gesture applied to the zoom window and is indicative of a resizing of the zoom window. The zoom window is resized on the UI in accordance with the first gesture, and a scale of the magnified view within the zoom window is maintained as the zoom window is resized. Input data is received that is indicative of a second gesture applied to the zoom window and indicative of a change to a zoom scale for content within the zoom window.
