  • Patent number: 11062472
    Abstract: A server includes: a memory storing calibration data; and a processor connected with the memory, the processor configured to: obtain a point cloud depicting a capture volume containing a transporter having a body and a holder carrying an object to be dimensioned; obtain a set of positions associated with the transporter; based on the set of positions and the calibration data: generate side cutting planes corresponding to sides of the body of the transporter; generate a front cutting plane corresponding to a forward surface of a mast of the holder; and discard points between the side cutting planes and the front cutting plane to obtain a first portion of the point cloud; based on the calibration data, select a second portion of the point cloud from the first portion, excluding a base of the holder; and dimension the object based on the second portion of the point cloud.

  • Patent number: 11062792
    Abstract: A facility for identifying combinations of feature and machine learning algorithm parameters, where each combination can be combined with one or more machine learning algorithms to train a model, is disclosed. The facility evaluates each genome based on the ability of a model trained using that genome and a machine learning algorithm to produce accurate results when applied to a validation data set by, for example, generating a fitness or validation score for the trained model and the corresponding genome used to train the model. Genomes that produce fitness scores that exceed a fitness threshold are selected for mutation, mutated, and the process is repeated. These trained models can then be applied to new data to generate predictions for the underlying subject matter.

  • Publication number: 20200096980
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention include a system and method capable of generating an operations management interface enabling monitoring of distributed components of a process control application. The operations management interface can include a customizable display enabling operators to prepare decisions based on a context-based three-dimensional representation of the distributed components. The operations management interface display includes controls for manipulating graphically displayed representations of data rendered by the distributed components, and an interface for exchanging requests and data through data links to one or more distributed data-linked components. Some selectable displayed information in the operations management interface window can include locations, interconnection layout and hierarchy, and specifications, and datasheets of distributed components.

  • Publication number: 20120095775
    Abstract: A computer implemented method, system and/or computer program product identifies a public health care issue for a specific population based on data from a confederated public health database. A confederated public health database is created from multi-disciplinary databases that include both medical databases and non-medical databases. A health care issue for a specific population is identified based on data from the confederated public health database, in order to create a public health care plan to address that health care issue, which is then transmitted to a public health official.

  • Publication number: 20080049949
    Abstract: A lightweight radio/CD player for vehicular application is virtually “fastenerless” and includes a case and frontal interface formed of polymer based material that is molded to provide details to accept audio devices such as playback mechanisms (if desired) and radio receivers, as well as the circuit boards required for electrical control and display. The case and frontal interface are of composite structure, including an insert molded electrically conductive wire mesh screen that has been pre-formed to contour with the molding operation. The wire mesh provides EMC, RFI, BCI and ESD shielding and grounding of the circuit boards via exposed wire mesh pads and adjacent ground clips. The PCB architecture is bifurcated into a first board carrying common circuit components in a surface mount configuration suitable for high volume production, and a second board carrying application specific circuit components in a wave soldered stick mount configuration.
