  • Publication number: 20190188630
    Abstract: An order processing system includes a computing device, which includes a processor and a storage device storing computer executable code. The computer executable code, when executed at the processor, is configured to: receive an order, determine a cool-down period of the order based on a cost function, and dispatch the order to a warehouse platform when the cool-down period expires. The cost function takes into account at least a waste cost due to process by the warehouse platform according to the order in case of possible cancellation of the order after the cool-down period and a delay cost due to delayed dispatching of the order to the warehouse platform by the cool-down period. The cool-down period is determined as one that minimizes the cost function in a prescribed range.

  • Publication number: 20190170685
    Abstract: Methods described herein, in some embodiments, permit extraction of particle structural and/or surface charge data from gradient induced particle motion in channels. In one aspect, a method of manipulating particle motion comprises introducing a fluid into a channel, the fluid comprising particles, and driving particle accumulation to a preselected location in the channel by setting advective velocity of the fluid to offset diffusiophoretic mobility of the particles at the preselected location.

  • Publication number: 20190140441
    Abstract: A method for fault positioning and recovery of a voltage source converter includes following steps. Locking a converter station when it is detected that an alternating-current voltage contains a zero sequence voltage or a direct-current voltage contains an unbalanced voltage. Positioning a fault by continuing to detect the zero sequence voltage of an alternating-current side of the converter. Recovering operation of each station after the fault is positioned. The method for fault positioning and recovery is simple, practical, has high reliability, and can effectively detect the problems that each station contains a zero sequence voltage of an alternating-current side and cannot easily position a fault caused due to transmission of the zero sequence voltage of the alternating-current side to an opposite-side alternating-current system via a voltage source converter.

  • Patent number: 10175867
    Abstract: User input-based object selection using multiple visual cues is described. User selection input is received for selecting a portion of an image. Once the user selection input is received, one of a plurality of visual cues that convey different information about content depicted in the image is selected for each pixel. The one visual cue is selected as a basis for identifying the pixel as part of the selected portion of the image or part of an unselected remainder of the image. The visual cues are selected by determining confidences, based in part on the user selection input, that the plurality of visual cues can be used to discriminate whether the pixel is part of the selected portion or part of the remainder. The information conveyed by the selected visual cues is used to identify the pixels as part of the selected portion or part of the remainder.
