  • Publication number: 20220386435
    Abstract: Computer implemented systems and methods for providing dynamic lighting through lighting fixtures are provided herein. In one aspect, one or more characteristics of light provided from a lighting fixture or a plurality of lighting fixtures changes over time to shape the environment of an indoor space according to simulated environment illumination parameters and general illumination parameters. Dynamic lighting may improve the health or wellbeing of individuals in an indoor space, for example, by simulating an outdoor environment to reduce stress, by providing circadian entrainment to improve sleep and wakefulness, or the like. Other aspects of the present disclosure enable lighting fixtures to provide light that is synchronized with one or more other devices that simulate an environment and shape the environment of an indoor space.

  • Patent number: 11503618
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure provide for a thin control channel structure that can be utilized to enable multiplexing of two or more data transmission formats. For example, a thin control channel may carry information that enables ongoing transmissions utilizing a first, relatively long transmission time interval (TTI) to be punctured, and during the punctured portion of the long TTI, a transmission utilizing a second, relatively short TTI may be inserted. This puncturing is enabled by virtue of a thin channel structure wherein a control channel can carry scheduling information, grants, etc., informing receiving devices of the puncturing that is occurring or will occur. Furthermore, the thin control channel can be utilized to carry other control information, not being limited to puncturing information. Other aspects, embodiments, and features are also claimed and described.

  • Publication number: 20220358808
    Abstract: An engine that both calculates “basic odds” (calculated by using historical database mining) and at least one more odds making formula to calculate odds on at least one outcome of a single play in a live event, crossing at least two different odds making formulas to create crossed odds. The embodiments can utilize AI to correlate the crossed odds with the final odds on similar historical plays in which odds were calculated and use machine learning after the play's outcome is known to correlate odds generated by each odds making formula with most profitable odds calculated on previous similar plays. This system may use a hybrid of a basic computer system with AI capability computers and connection to quantum capability computers to assist with calculating odds where the basic computer can determine when and how much to invoke the AI capability, the Quantum capability, and the combined AI capability.

  • Publication number: 20220342388
    Abstract: A system is provided that predicts motor wear and failures before they occur. Telemetry data from motors in a motor application is collected and predictive algorithms are used to determine when a motor is aging and when it may fail. Identifying a potential failure in these types of applications can help mitigate risk of other equipment failures and realize cost savings. In one example, a motor aging detection system is provided that includes one or more DC motors, and a motor controller coupled to each motor. The motor controller reads three phase currents from each motor and converts the phase currents to digital values, calculates telemetry data including applied voltages, back electric-motive force, inductance, and resistance of each motor at periodic intervals, stores this telemetry data for each motor in a memory. An age detection circuit retrieves this information from the memory and determines age factors of the motor.
