  • Publication number: 20140324530
    Abstract: A new approach is proposed that contemplates systems and methods to detect patterns in at least one data stream. First, the at least one data stream is received and analyzed to detect an event in the least one data stream, wherein the detected event occurs in relation with an entity and includes at least one attribute indicative of at least one of an identity of the entity, an event type, and contact information for the entity. Once the event is detected and/or received from an external source, it is compared with a plurality of predefined patterns to determine if a match between the event and at least one of the predefined patterns is found. If a match is found successfully, a notification indicative of the entity and/or the event and the at least one predefined pattern that has been successfully matched with the event is generated and transmitted with instructions for actions by another application.

  • Patent number: 7249910
    Abstract: A delineator includes a post having a bottom portion and a stem extending from the bottom portion. At least a portion of the post is moveable in a lateral direction between an at-rest position and an impact position. An anchor includes a top and an elongated receptacle. In one aspect, the stem is removably inserted in the receptacle and is moveable in a longitudinal direction between at least a first position and a second position relative to the receptacle as the flexible post is moved between the at-rest position and the impact position respectively. A first portion of the length of the stem is disposed in the receptacle when the stem is in the first position and a second portion of the length of the stem remains disposed in the receptacle when the stem is in the second position, wherein the first portion is greater than the second portion. Methods of removably retaining a boundary in a pathway and of installing a boundary in a pathway are also provided.

  • Patent number: 6270020
    Abstract: A roadway deicing system uses a pressurized gas stored in a high pressure tank to dispense a solid or liquid deicer onto a roadway. An electrically powered controller responds to control inputs to control valves, such as solenoid valves, to cause the deicer to be dispensed at appropriate times. Since electrical power is not used for propelling the deicer onto the roadway, conventional storage batteries can provide long service life for the system between maintenance intervals.
