  • Patent number: 10976898
    Abstract: A system for hierarchical navigation of menus on a screen and particularly from one menu to another menu at the same level of a menu hierarchy. The system may provide side-to-side movement between menu elements to more easily navigate the menu pyramid. It may facilitate access to the details of a list of devices by selecting next and previous devices in the list, without navigating back to the list. The system may provide an operator or user with a simple, convenient method of browsing the details of devices in a list without the need to move back and forth throughout the list. The display may automatically adapt to the disparate properties of each type of device in the list. Also, the displayed details may be unique for a characterization of each device but be rendered in a common format.

  • Patent number: 10544951
    Abstract: A method includes aggregating multiple zones of an indoor structure, each zone having associated comfort limits, formulating an aggregated single zone model predictive control (MPC) problem representative of the multiple zones for a heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system, determining optimal aggregated actions as a function of the aggregated single zone model predictive control problem, simulating an optimal trajectory of indoor qualities, and determining zone temperature setpoints to comply with the comfort limits for each zone and pre-cool the indoor structure.

  • Publication number: 20180136953
    Abstract: An approach for defining user interface components within a building control or automation system. The user interface definition may be rendered on a remote display device. The rendering may be accomplished through a making of a set of object types which represent the components of the user interface. The approach or mechanism should have no dependency on either the hardware/software platform of the building control or automation system or the hardware/software platform of the remote display device.

  • Publication number: 20150323917
    Abstract: A building controller for controlling one or more building control components in a building, wherein the building controller is configured for bidirectional communication via a communication network between the building controller and the one or more building control components. The building controller can include a housing, a control unit, and a display unit. The control unit can execute an operating system and a building control application program having a control algorithm. The display unit may be configured to display at least one screen that facilitates user monitoring of diagnostic messages of the operating system of the control unit. Alternatively, or in addition, the display unit can be configured to display a screen to facilitate user entry of operating system parameters and/or a screen to facilitate entry of operating system commands for execution on by the control unit.

  • Patent number: 8375402
    Abstract: A system for constructing embedded display content and navigation where a computing platform is based on one technology and the embedded display content is based on another technology. For instance, the one technology may be NiagaraAX and the other technology may be non-Niagara. The system may, for instance, leverage NiagaraAX Workbench tooling to generate displays rendered in heterogeneous technologies, i.e., non-Niagara, to extend the range and application of user interfaces for Niagara-based technologies.

  • Patent number: 8359484
    Abstract: An application control engine computing platform having a shut-down mechanism that permits the platform to adequately start up and operate upon return of power after a power interruption, without a need of a battery pack. The mechanism may target the saving of control object runtime values and operational settings of those objects, rather than the saving of the complete set of objects, and all unsaved alarm and history records upon a power interruption.

  • Publication number: 20100251233
    Abstract: A system for standalone usage of an embedded computing system user interface on a separate heterogeneous computing device. The system may run the same binary software image as the embedded computing device on a PC platform. Because it is virtually the same exact software image as that which is on the device, the PC-hosted version effectively has full fidelity with the device version. Its user interface is virtually identical in appearance and has full navigation and a richer subset of functionality than would be possible with a simulator. Also, it is not necessary to maintain separate simulation and device software since both environments may use the same binary image.
