  • Publication number: 20220171907
    Abstract: A method includes receiving, via a first component in a production environment, a sensor measurement corresponding to a second component in the production environment. A first digital twin corresponding to the first component is identified, and a perception algorithm is applied to identify a component type associated with the second component. A second digital twin is selected based on the component type, and a third digital twin is selected that models interactions between the first digital twin and the second digital twin. The third digital twin is used to generate instructions for the first component that allow the first component to interact with the second component. The instructions may then be delivered to the first component.

  • Patent number: 10437778
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention include systems, methods, and computer-program products for archive validation and retention parameter determination for documents. The system may generate or receive image documents. Utilizing image quality and data storage metrics the system may trigger the purging and/or retention of documents in image and/or paper form. Furthermore, the system may identify a duration of storage, location of storage, and the like. Upon retention, the system may continually monitor the documents and store metadata associated with the use of the retained documents. This monitoring may identify a period for purging the document, efficiently allowing for physical or server space availability.

  • Patent number: 10437880
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention include systems, methods, and computer-program products for a feedback loop for enhancing archive validation and retention parameter determination for documents. The system may generate or receive image documents. Utilizing image quality and data storage metrics the system may trigger the purging and/or retention of documents in image and/or paper form. Upon retention, the system may continually monitor the documents and store metadata associated with the use of the retained documents. Once the documents are purged, the system compiles historic data points associated with the image quality and data storage metrics. Furthermore, the system extracts the metadata associated with the monitoring of retained documents. These data points and metadata are reviewed to provide revisions in retention parameters for specific documents. A feedback loop directly communicates and integrates the revisions to the metric and criteria for instant integration.

  • Patent number: 10096226
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to systems and methods for summoning emergency personnel to assist a user associated with a portable device. A system can include a processor that can access non-transitory memory and execute machine readable instructions stored therein. The machine readable instructions can cause the processor to receive an assistance request generated by the portable device. The request can include location information for the portable device. The machine readable instructions can further cause the processor to transmit an assistance summons request to one or more selected devices that the user is need of assistance, receive a confirmation message generated by at least one of the one or more selected devices confirming that the user associated with the portable device is need of the assistance, and transmit one or more notification messages to summon the emergency personnel for the user.

  • Patent number: 9738511
    Abstract: A MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) structure comprises a MEMS wafer. A MEMS wafer includes a cap with cavities bonded to a structural layer through a dielectric layer disposed between the cap and the structural layer. Unique configurations of MEMS devices and methods of providing such are set forth which provide for, in part, creating rounded, scalloped or chamfered MEMS profiles by shaping the etch mask photoresist reflow, by using a multi-step deep reactive ion etch (DRIE) with different etch characteristics, or by etching after DRIE.

  • Patent number: 9182454
    Abstract: Improved electric field (steered-electron electric-field, or SEEF) sensors and methods of manufacturing the same are provided. The SEEF sensors described herein may have increased sensitivity to low-frequency electric fields while being smaller than previously known sensors, and may allow for low-power electric field detection. The invention described herein allows for sensitive, long-term electric field monitoring for applications ranging from personnel detection to underground facility monitoring, as well as extraordinarily small vector sensing (full Poynting vector) for compact direction-finding of emitters of interest. Exemplary electric field sensors may accurately sense, measure, characterize and/or transmit electric field data over a wide frequency range. Importantly, such sensing, measuring, and/or characterizing do not require any physical or resistive contact between the sensor and a source of an electric field.
