  • Patent number: 10814314
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a catalyst for aminating a polyether polyol and preparation method thereof and a method of preparing a polyetheramine using the catalyst. The catalyst has active components and a carrier. The active components are Ni, Cu, and Pd. The method of preparing the catalyst comprises the following steps: using a metal solution or a metal melt impregnated carrier, obtaining a catalyst precursor; and drying and calcinating the obtained catalyst precursor, so as to obtain a catalyst. By introducing the active component Pd in the catalyst, the present invention clearly improves selectivity of an amination catalyst with respect to a preaminated product, and increases raw material conversion rate.

  • Patent number: 10614299
    Abstract: This invention introduces an indoor person identification system that utilizes the capture and analysis of footstep induced structural vibrations. The system senses floor vibration and detects the signal induced by footsteps. Then the system then extracts features from the signal that represent characteristics of each person's unique gait pattern. With these extracted features, the system conducts hierarchical classification at an individual step level and at a collection of consecutive steps level, achieving high degree of accuracy in the identification of individuals.

  • Patent number: 9032087
    Abstract: A system and method for generating data at a fine level of detail based on a request to a service object that provides data at a coarse level of detail. The request to the service object includes a data request and a response template indicating the level of detail or selection required in the response. The service object server accesses data using the service object api and coarse level of detail. A navigator uses the data request to develop an information model of the data and then traverses the information model to extract the data needed for a response at the level of detail indicated by the response template. The service object is thus able to return data at a fine level of detail from an object that supports only coarse levels of detail.

  • Patent number: 8055632
    Abstract: Provided is a system for generating an on-demand, custom runtime solution to a user or business's computing needs. A library of software components corresponding to different computing tasks of a business situation is created. Each software component is associated with one or more meta descriptors. The software components and related meta descriptors are managed by means of a software component meta management system (SCMMS). Meta descriptors are self adaptive in a manner that reflects real use scenarios. Meta descriptors describe both static and dynamic attributes of components.

  • Patent number: 7814558
    Abstract: An approach that proactively manages login security data is provided. The system selects requesters of a software application resource. A privileged requester is used to request login security data pertaining to the selected requesters. The login security data that is received is compared to one or more parameters that indicate which action(s) should take place. Based on this comparison, one or more actions are taken on behalf of the selected requesters. One of the actions that can be taken is a grace period. One of the actions that can be taken is an automatic security setting update. Another action that can be taken is an automatic notification that automatically informs a user or application that a requestor's access to the resource is about to expire.

  • Patent number: 7617224
    Abstract: Provided is a method for generating an on-demand, custom runtime solution to a user or business's computing needs. A library of software components corresponding to different computing tasks of a business situation is created. Each software component is associated with one or more meta descriptors. Aggregate descriptors are created that define relationships between software components and other software components, software components and aggregate descriptors and between aggregate descriptors. The software components and related meta and aggregate descriptors are managed by means of a software component meta management system (SCMMS). Employing the SCMMS, software components are registered and managed in a hierarchical structure based upon the interrelationships among the software components and the aggregate descriptors. The hierarchical structure is multi-layered, with different layers having different scopes. Users specify the number of levels and how the levels are defined.
