  • Publication number: 20210131845
    Abstract: A measuring element for a water meter assembly is provided. The measuring element may be interchangeably installed within a main case that is permanently situated in-line with a monitored piping system. The measuring element includes a measuring channel, an electronics module, and an acoustic reflector plate. The measuring element has a top wall with multiple ports and a bottom wall with a recess. The electronics module is mounted above the top wall. The electronics module includes one or more pairs of ultrasonic transducers configured to transmit ultrasonic signals through the multiple ports into the measuring channel, and a processor to calculate a flow value based on the transmitted ultrasonic signals from the one or more pairs of ultrasonic transducers. The acoustic reflector plate is mounted in the recess and includes at least one concave reflector that reflects the transmitted ultrasonic signals between the one or more pairs of ultrasonic transducers.

  • Patent number: 10997121
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a database platform receives a request from a client for creation of an attachable-and-detachable database session, and responsively creates the requested attachable-and-detachable database session for the client. The database platform sets the attachable-and-detachable database session as a current database session for the client at the database platform. The database platform determines that the client has detached from the attachable-and-detachable database session, and thereafter continues to maintain the attachable-and-detachable database session in data storage at the database platform.

  • Patent number: 10999573
    Abstract: The disclosure describes various aspects of a partial light field display architecture. In an aspect, a light field display includes multiple picture elements (e.g., super-raxels), where each picture element includes a first portion having a first set of light emitting elements, where the first portion is configured to produce light outputs that contribute to at least one a two-dimensional (2D) view. Each picture element also includes a second portion including a second set of light emitting elements (e.g., sub-raxels) configured to produce light outputs (e.g., ray elements) that contribute to at least one three-dimensional (3D) view. The light field display also includes electronic means configured to drive the first set of light emitting elements and the second set of light emitting elements in each picture element. The light field display can also dynamically identify the first portion and the second portion and allocate light emitting elements accordingly.

  • Patent number: 10979788
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a system includes a super-channel multiplexer (SCM) and an optical cross connect (OXC) switch. The SCM is configured to multiplex a set of optical signals into a super-channel optical signal with a wavelength band. The OXC switch is configured to be operatively coupled to the SCM and a reconfigurable optical add-drop multiplexer (ROADM) degree. The OXC switch is configured to be located between the SCM and the ROADM degree and the OXC switch, the SCM, and the ROADM degree are configured to be included in a colorless, directionless, and contentionless (CDC) optical network. The OXC switch is configured to switch, based on the wavelength band, the super-channel optical signal to an output port from a set of output ports of the OXC switch. The OXC switch is configured to transmit the super-channel optical signal from the output port to the ROADM degree.

  • Publication number: 20200347459
    Abstract: A method for the prediction, prognosis and/or diagnosis of bladder cancer or bladder cancer recurrence in a subject, the method includes: providing a test sample from the subject; measuring DNA methylation levels of at least a portion of two or more polynucleotides selected from the group consisting of HOXA9, SOX1, NPY, IRAK3, L1-MET, and ZO2 in the test sample; calculating a risk score based on the measured DNA methylation levels, comparing the calculated risk score to a cut-off value derived from a reference DNA methylation profile based on DNA methylation levels of the one or more biomarkers derived from a control group, members of which had bladder cancer; and based on the comparison calculated risk score to the cut-off value, determining at least one of: (1) whether bladder cancer has recurred; (2) whether there is likelihood that the bladder cancer will recur; and (3) whether the patient has bladder cancer. The one or more polynucleotides preferably comprise SOX1, IRAK3 and L1-MET.
