  • Patent number: 10878357
    Abstract: The methods and systems described herein attempt to address the above-mentioned need by providing an algorithm and software capability to automatically detect and assess “natural experiments” that exist in any underlying dataset. In one embodiment, a computer-implemented method for identifying an experiment to use in an analysis of a business initiative comprises storing, by a computer, a set of historical data regarding entities in a business network; receiving, by the computer, a selection of inputs for the historical data; detecting, by the computer, a natural experiment based upon changes in the discretized historical data; and outputting, by the computer, a report of a detected experiment from the discretized historical data.

  • Publication number: 20200372772
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method and system for monitoring the security of occupants in a ridesharing environment. The method captures moving images of the occupants present in a vehicle and performs analysis to recognize the face of the occupants through a video trigger module. Then the method reduces a frame rate of the captured moving images through a video compression module. The method captures audio signals generated by objects present in the vehicle through an audio trigger module. The method then transmits the captured moving images and the audio signals to a server unit through a data transmission module. The method then detects suspicious activity and facilitates a remote user to initiate a telephonic call to an emergency service provider through a monitoring module. The method analyses the captured moving images of the occupant and transmits the analyzed data to the server unit for authentication of the occupants through a biometric module.

  • Publication number: 20200239240
    Abstract: A conveyor sled assembly is utilized to supply proppant in support of oilfield hydraulic fracturing operations. The conveyor sled assembly includes precisely positioned components where tolerances between components are so small as to prevent significant spillage at component junction boundaries. This manner of fitting proppant pods onto the conveyor sled assembly increases predictability of which pods will discharge their proppant load first. This enhances reliability of the overall proppant delivery system.

  • Patent number: 8416960
    Abstract: An earpiece of an ANR device incorporates one or more of feedforward-based ANR; feedback-based ANR; passive noise reduction (PNR) of environmental noise sounds in the environment external to the casing of the earpiece in higher audible frequencies; a controlled leak acoustically coupling the front cavity to the environment external to the casing of the ANR device where the coupling may be through another cavity that is closable to the environment external to the casing with a leaky cover; a combination of an acoustically resistive port and a mass port coupling a rear cavity to the environment external to the casing where the coupling may be through another cavity that is closable to the environment external to the casing with a leaky cover; a feedforward microphone given acoustic access to the environment external to the casing through an aperture that is overlain with a leaky cover or that is enclosed within a cavity that is acoustically coupled to the environment external to the casing with a leak.

  • Publication number: 20070217633
    Abstract: An audio system includes an enclosure having a transducer. The transducer creates a vibration in the enclosure in response to being driven by an audio signal having a frequency range. A cradle assembly mechanically couples a portable device to the enclosure through an isolator. A portion of the vibration is coupled into the cradle assembly. The isolator reduces an amplitude of the coupled vibration so that an operation of the portable device within a portion of the frequency range is uninterrupted when the portable device is coupled to the cradle assembly.

  • Patent number: 6796072
    Abstract: The firearm safety device includes a cylindrical cartridge plug which is insertable into a firing chamber of the barrel of a firearm. One end of the cartridge plug is positioned proximal to the opening of the bore through the barrel and the other end is positioned proximal to a firing pin of the firearm. The cartridge plug has a smooth outer surface which is in communication with an extraction finger of the firearm. A number of protrusions emanate outwardly from the outer surface of the cartridge plug. The protrusions are frictionally engageable with the inner wall of the firing chamber to maintain the plug within the firing chamber. An elongated indicator member is connected to the end of the cartridge plug which is proximal to the bore. The other end of the elongated indicator member extends completely through the bore of the barrel so that it is visible outside the barrel of the firearm to indicate to the user that the firearm is in a safe condition and cannot be fired.

  • Patent number: 6183979
    Abstract: A method for preparation of an air-dried prothrombin time (PT) reagent which uses a recombinant protein and synthetic phospholipids is described. The source for the recombinant protein is rabbit brain, and the phospholipids employed are palmitoyloleoylphosphatidylcholine (POPC) and palmitoyloleoylphosphatidylserine (POPS). The particular formulation buffer used to dilute the lipidated tissue factor provides a reagent that is dried without lyophilization and remains stable for at least 2 weeks at 37 C. A method for preparing the improved PT reagent and a method of using the reagent to analyze blood PT is also provided.

  • Patent number: 4273969
    Abstract: This headset includes a capsule intended for mounting over either ear of the wearer. The surface of the headset capsule adjacent to the ear is contoured to fit snugly behind either ear. A microphone is mounted on a boom projecting from the front end of the capsule. The boom is tiltable and rotatable so that the position of the microphone may be adjusted relative to the mouth. The rotatability of the boom on the capsule permits adaptation of the headset for wear over either the right or left ear. The boom is curved to keep it out of contact with the face of the wearer. An ear tube extends from the lower end of the capsule at the central plane thereof and is flexible so that it may engage either the right or left ear, depending on the location of the headset. The bottom of the capsule is provided with an ear clip for the purpose of maintaining the position of the capsule and microphone during motion of the head.
