  • Patent number: 10836587
    Abstract: Embodiments disclosed herein generally relate to systems and methods for emptying and/or cleaning a tray within an assembly line grow pod. In one embodiment, a sanitizer component for cleaning a tray coupled to a cart in an assembly line grow pod is disclosed. The sanitizer component is coupled to a track such that the cart and the tray are received in the sanitizer component via the track. The sanitizer component comprises a first actuator arm positioned underneath the track and extendable through an opening in the track and an aperture at a bottom end of the cart to contact the tray such that the tray rotates in a first direction. The sanitizer component further includes an actuator motor coupled to the first actuator arm for extending the first actuator arm and a controller. The controller is communicatively connected to the actuator motor in the sanitizer component.

  • Publication number: 20200340577
    Abstract: A transmission for a machine is disclosed. The transmission may comprise a torque path providing a path for transmission of torque from an input shaft to an output shaft, and a single clutch element along the torque path. The transmission may further comprise a clutch actuator configured to actuate engagement of the clutch element, and a clutch pressure control (CPC) valve configured to permit a flow of hydraulic fluid to the clutch actuator through a control pressure line when in an open position to cause the clutch actuator to actuate engagement of the clutch element. The transmission may further comprise a failure mode response (FMR) valve in the control pressure line between the CPC valve and the clutch actuator. The FMR valve may have a failure position obstructing flow of the hydraulic fluid from the CPC valve to the clutch actuator when the CPC valve is in the open position.

  • Publication number: 20200336513
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing network security for a plurality of networks. Each of the networks comprises one or more networked devices, and each of the networks includes one or more security devices configured to monitor data traffic into and out of the networks. Abstracted access rules are created to define access between the networked devices. Each of the access rules are compiled into a security rule that uses object definitions of the networked devices to define access between the networked devices. The security rules are compiled and transmitted to the security devices for implementation.

  • Patent number: 10812432
    Abstract: Techniques to promote filtered messages based on historical reply rate are described. In one embodiment, an apparatus may comprise a messaging interface component operative to receive an incoming message; and transmit the incoming message to a configured delivery mailbox on a client device; and a destination mailbox configuration component operative to determine one or more connection categories between the sender account and the recipient account; determine a predicted reply rate for the incoming message based on the one or more connection categories, a recipient reply history for the recipient account, and a sender reply history for the sender account; configure the delivery mailbox for the incoming message based on the predicted reply rate; identify a most-prominent connection category of the one or more connection categories; and configure the incoming message with a banner message indicating the most-prominent connection category. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 10755300
    Abstract: A system for collecting and presenting information about advertising analytics comprises an ad preparation server, an ad server and an analytics server. The ad preparation server receives advertising assets (e.g., ads) and modifies them to include a data collection script. The preparation server then sends the modified ads to the ad server for delivery along with underlying content to users. The underlying content and modified ads are delivered to client devices that present the content and execute the data collection script. The data collection script collects and sends advertising analytic data back to the analytics server in a non-intrusive manner. The present invention also includes a method for preparing ads, a method for deriving a heat map, a method for generating and sending advertising data, and a method for generating a representation of a focus of attention for a user.

  • Publication number: 20200205739
    Abstract: Systems and methods for the quantification of the quality of an acquired signal are provided for assessment and for gating the acquired signal for subsequent analysis. A signal is acquired, and a determination is made in real-time if there is a problem with the acquisition (e.g., if the acquired signal is acceptable or unacceptable; is of sufficient quality for subsequent assessment). If there is a problem, output is provided via the systems and methods described herein to indicate that signal acquisition needs to be performed again (e.g., if the acquired signal is unacceptable, reject the acquired signal and acquire a new signal).

  • Publication number: 20200193487
    Abstract: A system for analyzing user consumption of content on web pages or determining user engagement with content comprising a data collection script and an content-engagement-inference engine. The data collection script determines one or more content elements to be measured from a web page and collects description data associated with the one or more content elements. The description data describes information about the one or more content elements. The content-engagement-inference engine creates an inference or analytics result based on the description data. The inference or analytics result describes how the one or more content elements have been consumed by users and then provides the inference or analytics result for users to designated entities.

  • Publication number: 20200167778
    Abstract: Trusted communication between a first computing device and a second computing device in a transaction process is established as follows. A communication channel is established between the first computing device and the second computing device. The first computing device provides a secure communication to the second computing device, this secure communication comprising cryptographic material encrypted by a first cryptographic method. The second computing device decrypts the secure communication using a key already available to it. The first and the second computing device then communicate where trusted communication is required by a second cryptographic method using the cryptographic material. A suitable first computing device and second computing device are also described.
