  • Publication number: 20220269556
    Abstract: A software framework for implementation in the performance of automated robotic workflows imparts a hierarchical communications command structure, utilizing an actor-based model to run driver software isolated from scheduling software, by instantiating a message-based abstraction layer that acts as an intermediary between the scheduling software and the third-party driver software. The actor-based model is used within the message-based abstraction layer to isolate the third-party software controlling third party instruments from scheduling software, where such scheduling software and third-party instruments are operating on a common computing platform. This framework prevents scheduling applications from entering an error state, or crashing, where the third-party software component also crashes, and allows the scheduling software to restart the third-party software to continue with the processes controlled by the scheduling software, without interruption to the automated workflow environment.

  • Publication number: 20220269917
    Abstract: Optical articles including a spatially defined arrangement of a plurality of data rich retroreflective elements, wherein the plurality of retroreflective elements comprise retroreflective elements having at least two different retroreflective properties and at least two different optical contrasts with respect to a background substrate when observed within an ultraviolet spectrum, a visible spectrum, a near-infrared spectrum, or a combination thereof.

  • Patent number: 11420327
    Abstract: An approach for fully automating the use of robotic devices in a laboratory workflow includes defining sequences for automating tasks and equipment involved in such a workflow, and calculating a path for each sequence that resolves get, handoff, and placement procedures. The approach develops a schedule that executes resolved pathways in and between each device. The approach is provided with an easy-to-use interface, in which a user drags and drops devices to automatically configure them, defines operations to be performed by these devices, and then runs the laboratory workflow. The interface also provides the ability to monitor progress of the workflow, and make modifications and adjustments as needed.

  • Patent number: 10857387
    Abstract: A beam profile measurement (BPM) system is described including a BPM phantom including a tank to house liquid, a dosimeter disposed in the tank to detect ionization of a radiation beam emitted from a linear accelerator (LINAC), and a positioning device to move the dosimeter in a vertical direction. The BPM system also includes a BPM controller to operably couple to the BPM phantom and the LINAC. A method is described including positioning, using a BPM controller, a dosimeter of the BPM phantom in a first location, positioning, using the BPM controller, the LINAC in a second location, performing, using the BPM controller, a first movement of the LINAC from the second location to a third location, emitting a radiation beam from the LINAC during the first movement, and performing, via the dosimeter, an ion measurement of the radiation beam during the emitting.
