  • Patent number: 10509844
    Abstract: An approach for processing node data from code repository websites to generate patterns is disclosed. Node data can be parsed from a projects webpage or received from a code repository server hosting the repository website. Visualizations can be generated in a browser from the node data. The visualizations can be displayed within the browser and further be used to receive filter instructions. Refined node data can then be exported for further analysis.

  • Publication number: 20190193690
    Abstract: Unlike axle replacement on vehicles, where the weight of the vehicle and air-assisted tools may be used, replacement of axle shafts in confined spaces (e.g. benchtop testing rigs) demand improved methods for controlling axle rotation during loosening and tightening of hub nuts. The present disclosure relates to an apparatus for controlling axle rotation during axle shaft replacement in confined spaces. The apparatus further includes a safety mechanism to prevent accidental team member injury caused by an independently rotating axle. Additionally, the disclosure describes a method of the apparatus for efficient loosening and tightening of hub nuts, reducing team member physical burden and expediting axle shaft replacement.

  • Publication number: 20190190970
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media can determine content that was captured and provided by a camera device. At least one event that occurred in a social networking system in response to the content can be determined. One or more instructions can be provided to the camera device for illuminating one or more light sources associated with the camera device. The one or more light sources can be illuminated based at least in part on a pre-defined illumination pattern that visually communicates occurrence of the event.

  • Patent number: 10245702
    Abstract: An incoming water control for use in a wet abrasive blasting system includes an incoming water supply with a pressure of between 1 psi and 200 psi, a pressure reducing valve for reducing the pressure of the incoming water supply, and an air over water pneumatic piston style water pump that incorporates check valves. The pump receives water having a water pressure of less than 20 psi from the pressure reducing valve and the pump delivers water to a blast pot pressure vessel of the wet abrasive blasting system to pressurize the blast pot pressure vessel filled with water and abrasive.

  • Patent number: 10151309
    Abstract: A peristaltic pump device includes a resilient tube secured in a pump housing with a rotor having rollers squeezing against the resilient tube facilitating the pumping of a liquid or gas. A cylindrical rotor rotates in a bore provided in the pump housing. The rotor has steps in which rollers freely slide and rotate. As the rotor rotates, the rollers also rotate and are slidingly held in the rotor step thereby frictional contact with the compressing resilient tube and consequently the liquid or gas within goes out of the resilient tube. The pump is inexpensive to build, reliable, and by design promotes the long life of the resilient tube as compared to existing roller type peristaltic pumps.

  • Patent number: 10072068
    Abstract: The binding specificity of at least one plasma protein suspended or dissolved in a liquid medium is altered by exposing the protein to an oxidizing agent or an electric current sufficient to alter its binding specificity. A masked protein such as an autoantibody can be recovered from blood or blood products or extracts by oxidizing the protein to change its binding specificity.

  • Publication number: 20180219992
    Abstract: A hand held biometric mount for mobile phones, tablets, or similar devices of different sizes can provide for mobile biometric sensing in an integrated device that allows for the easy and rapid connection, docking, and disconnection of phones or tablets of various sizes to biometric sensors that can be housed in the mount. The device can include a mount base configured to support and hold a mobile phone and a biometric sensor. The mount can further include an adjustable bracket configured to securely hold and release the mobile phone. The adjustable bracket can include a ratchet or similar mechanism to adjust to the size of the phone or other device and hold it in place. The phone and biometric sensor can be connected via wired or plug-type connections that are integrated within the base or by a wireless connection.

  • Publication number: 20180156392
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method and system of an arrangement of sensors that can be used to detect changes in burial conditions of a pipeline buried under a body of water. The method comprising : obtaining a first temperature of a fluid at a first location; obtaining a second temperature of the fluid at a second location upstream and proximal to the crossing of the body of water; obtaining a third temperature of the fluid at a third location downstream from the crossing of the body of water; generating an estimate of the temperature of the fluid at the third location by establishing the rate of change of temperature of the fluid using the obtained first and second temperature and the distance between the first and second sensors; and identifying pipe exposure when there is a deviation between the estimated temperature and the obtained third temperature.
