  • Patent number: 11076103
    Abstract: A method for image capture includes determining an exposure range and setting at least one camera parameter to capture an underexposed image outside the exposure range. The underexposed image is processed using a neural network to recover image details. Image defects due to camera or object motion blur can be reduced.

  • Publication number: 20200143519
    Abstract: A method for image capture includes identifying a bright spot in an image. A neural network is used to recover details in bright spot area through a trained de-noising process. Post-processing of the image is conducted to match image parameters of recovered details in the bright spot area to another area of the image.

  • Patent number: 9309652
    Abstract: A water collection container includes a tank; a lid having with an inlet opening in its top surface, and an overflow opening and a water inflow assembly on its underside. The water inflow assembly includes a valve interconnected between the inlet opening, the overflow opening and the tank and operated via a handle. The valve, in a first configuration, diverts water from the inlet opening to the tank and overflow from the tank to the overflow opening, and in a second configuration diverts water from the inlet opening to the overflow opening while substantially preventing water from entering the tank. An in-line filter may be located between the valve and inlet opening.

  • Patent number: 7895137
    Abstract: A computer processing device receives computer readable data to derive computer executable rules for mining and constructing situation categories. The received data is transformed into a predetermined standard format if the received data is not already in the predetermined standard format. The predetermined standard formatted data is parsed, and an outer, iterative loop is performed until at least one predetermined stopping criterion is met. An inner iterative loop is performed within the outer iterative loop until all desired subsets of data are processed. During the inner iterative loop, selected subsets of data are labeled with labels associated with corresponding previously labeled subsets of data. New computer executable rules are generated for mining and constructing situation categories from the labeled subsets of data. Keyword list classifiers are transformed using the stored labeled subsets of data.

  • Patent number: 7878469
    Abstract: A novel adjustable screed bar holder used to support screed bars used in concrete finish work. The holder moves along a supporting device such as a stake, pin, or post. A lever on the holder is coupled to a cam wheel such that movement of the lever will disengage the cam wheel from the stake. When the cam wheel is in the disengaged position the holder is free to move along the stake until the lever is released and the cam wheel secures against the stake. Typically the holder will be used to hold a piece of lumber, pipe, rebar, or tubing parallel to the forms used in concrete placement. A screed may then be run over the concrete while it rides on the screed bar supported by the adjustable holder.

  • Patent number: 7730007
    Abstract: An off-line knowledge acquisition process takes IT resource messages and automatically generates a set of rules used to provide situation categories for the resource messages/events. The off-line knowledge acquisition process generates an event-to-situation mapping file for efficiently mapping situation to events in runtime. Rules are fed back into a knowledge repository and process for reuse. The off-line knowledge acquisition process provides methods to reiterate the process of mining (autonomically and/or by human interaction) to improve the rules and confidence level assigning the situation categories. A runtime categorizer component uses the event-to-situation mapping file to add situation categories to the IT resource events. The runtime categorizer uses a plurality of annotator components each capable of adding a situation annotation to incoming messages based on rules generated by the off-line knowledge acquisition process.

  • Patent number: 7503888
    Abstract: A centrifuge bowl for separating heavier particles from lighter particles and water comprises a conical lead-in wall leading of the bowl to a single recess or a pair of annular recesses at axially spaced positions. Each recess is generally V-shaped with an upper side wall, a lower side wall and a base. The base contains a plurality of angularly spaced valve controlled discharge ducts each having a mouth projecting through the base into the interior of the bowl for discharging the heavier particles in a continuous operation. The lead-in surface is stepped to cause tumbling of the flowing feed materials. The recess or recesses contain a concentrator ring which projects into the recess toward the base to reduce the amount of concentrate in the recess.

  • Patent number: 7491280
    Abstract: Systems and methods for welding of parts are described. In one embodiment, a method for ultrasonic welding of parts by means of an ultrasonic welding device including at least a generator, a converter, and a sonotrode based on a set curve of a time-dependent welding parameter appropriate to a welding connection meeting set requirements, where the welding duration corresponding to the set curve runs between a starting time t0 and an end time te, wherein during welding of the parts an actual curve of the time-dependent welding parameter is measured, where in the period between t0 and te the actual curve is compared with the set curve and, depending on the existing difference, at least one process parameter affecting welding is altered such that an equalization of set curve and actual curve occurs during further welding.
