  • Publication number: 20210233197
    Abstract: The disclosure pertains to using ultra-wideband (UWB) radio communications to execute a pedestrian-vehicle rendezvous. In one example operation, a personal device such as a smartphone, is used to identify a location of a vehicle with a first level of accuracy. For example, the smartphone may be used by a pedestrian to obtain GPS location coordinates of a ride-hail vehicle summoned by the pedestrian. The vehicle may be located relatively far from the pedestrian. The smartphone may be configured to automatically establish a UWB radio link with a UWB transponder in the vehicle and/or a smartphone carried by a driver of the ride-hail vehicle, when the vehicle is within range to establish UWB communications. The UWB radio link may be used to execute one or more of various procedures to locate the vehicle with a second level of accuracy that is higher than the first level of accuracy.

  • Publication number: 20190220551
    Abstract: A data processing system for automated design of a piping system and method thereof are disclosed. In one embodiment, a method for automated design of a piping system includes obtaining logical definition data of the piping system with pipe runs from a computer-aided design (CAD) database, and computing a piping path for said each pipe run based on the logical definition data of the piping system. The method includes determining positions of the piping components required for said each pipe run according to the logical definition data based on the computed piping path, and associating the piping components for said each pipe run with the determined positions of the piping components. Moreover, the method includes automatically generating a graphical model of the piping system with the pipe runs based on the association of the piping components with the determined positions for said each pipe run.

  • Patent number: 9450948
    Abstract: A method for securely searching, finding, reproducing, recovering, and/or exporting electronic data from at least two systems which can be found in a network and which are organized in a functionally identical and decentralized manner. The individual systems include a system certificate and a corresponding serial number by the manufacturer and can carry out an authentication process using said system certificate and serial number. Information is provided on user authorizations between the systems using configuration tables which are stored on each of the systems. A maximum level of security is ensured by combining cryptographic methods and the mutual authentication of the involved systems. A user interface is provided for the user, wherein the user receives a pre-selection of the requested electronic data in the user interface and can then mark the pre-selection for further processing.

  • Publication number: 20150248417
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method that is used to synchronize dynamic attributes of objects in a database system having an archive system. The possibility is created to also synchronize databases for which synchronization is not provided, in accordance with this method. For this purpose, an additional dynamic attribute or one additional dynamic attribute per attribute to be synchronized is introduced. By means of said attributes, it can be detected whether the particular object in the database system has been changed and synchronization between the database system and an archive system must be performed as a result thereof in order to have the object attributes archived in the current form thereof in the archive system.

  • Patent number: 9116933
    Abstract: Embodiments relate to interfaces allowing a user to optimize a model which references and manipulates volumes of information present in an underlying database. An interface engine of an application layer, may communicate with the database engine of an underlying database layer, to provide a user with indicia of modeling performance. Thus for every modeling step, an interface engine could display performance indicia such as a number of database rows that are being referenced, and/or an amount of time consumed in retrieving the data from the database. This performance indicia, together with a structure of the model itself, can be processed by the interface engine through a repository of optimization recommendations. Recommendations from the repository may be published to the user, who is free to accept or reject them. Particular embodiments may leverage processing capacity of an in-memory database engine, to analyze database information gathered during modeling.

  • Patent number: 8966258
    Abstract: The present invention deals with a method for securely downloading from distributed download sources. The greatest possible download security with a simultaneously minimized server load is achieved in this case. The object of the present invention was to provide an improved download method which also allows simple servers, without the possibility of setting up a secure connection, to be used as download servers and allows the total CPU load on the servers involved to be minimized, wherein the data transmission security can be kept the same, in comparison with a download from a single server, via a secure connection.

  • Patent number: 8943052
    Abstract: A data modeling platform allows a user to enter a search request using natural language (e.g., typed or spoken). The search request may be semantically parsed to provide mapping to various database search elements. Pre-existing data models may be identified from the database search elements. One or more new data models may be created from the database search elements. The results represent candidate data models in response to the user's search request.
