  • Publication number: 20200103612
    Abstract: The method of aligning a cylindrical lens in a lens assembly includes attaching the cylindrical lens to a lens fixture and interfacing the lens fixture to a support structure in which the cylindrical lens can be placed in a frontwards and backwards orientation. The method also includes capturing respective first and second line images of respective first and second focus lines as formed by the cylindrical lens in the forwards and backwards orientations. The method further includes establishing a relative orientation of the first and second line images and using the established relative orientation to determine an amount of angular misalignment of the cylindrical lens relative to a reference direction provided by the support structure. The method can include rotating the cylindrical lens relative to the lens fixture to reduce the amount of angular misalignment to be within an angular alignment tolerance.

  • Patent number: 10601986
    Abstract: One example method of operation may include identifying call data associated with a received call, identifying call parameters from the call data, and the call parameters include one or more call routing parameters associated with call routing of the call and one or more call session parameters associated with a call session of the call, assigning weights to one or more of the call routing parameters and the call session parameters, determining a scam score for the call based on a sum of the weights applied to the call routing parameters and the call session parameters, and blocking the call when the scam score is greater than or equal to a predetermined threshold scam score.

  • Patent number: 10569134
    Abstract: A system and method for analyzing and improving the performance of a body motion of an animal or human subject requires instrumenting a subject with inertial sensors, monitoring a body motion of interest, converting sensor data into motion data and animation, comparing the motion data with existing data for motion related performance parameters, providing a real-time, information rich, animation and data display of the results in color coded displays; and based on the results prescribing a training regime with exercises selected from a library of standardized exercises using standardized tools and training aids.

  • Publication number: 20200041208
    Abstract: A system measures parameters of the electricity drawn by an arc furnace and, based on an analysis of the parameters, provides indicators of whether arc coverage has been optimized. Factors related to optimization of arc coverage include electrode position, charge level, slag level and slag behaviour. More specifically, such indicators of whether arc coverage has been optimized may be used when determining a position for the electrode such that, to an extent possible, a stable arc cavity is maintained and an open arc condition is avoided. Conveniently, by avoiding open arc conditions, the internal linings of the furnace walls and roof may be protected from excessive wear and tear.

  • Patent number: 10552029
    Abstract: A method implemented by a computer. The method includes displaying, on a tangible display device, a pinboard including a first breadcrumb on a first area of the display device, wherein the breadcrumb points to first data. The method also includes displaying, on a second area of the tangible display device different than the first area, a plurality of categories of information regarding the first data. The method also includes responsive to selecting a first category of the plurality of categories, performing both of: displaying details regarding the first category in a third area of the tangible display device different than the first area and the second area, as well as updating the breadcrumb to point to second data relating to the first category, whereby faster operation of the computer is enabled by avoidance of intervening user actions.

  • Publication number: 20200008534
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a removable tightening device is described. The tensioning mechanism is removably coupleable with an article without damaging the article so that upon removal, the coupling of the tensioning mechanism with the article is unrecognizable or not readily detectable. The tensioning mechanism is operable with a tension member to maintain a tension of the tension member and thereby maintain a tightness of the article. The tension member is guided along a path about the article, via one or more guide members, and is tensionable, via the tensioning mechanism, to tighten the article.
