  • Publication number: 20190295039
    Abstract: An information exchange platform referred to as a Trading Grid (TG) may perform relationship-based data processing utilizing a trading partner (TP) graph that describes relationships amongst operating units (OUs) on the TG. When the TG receives a request from an OU to exchange data with a TP, the TG accesses the TP graph and determines a relationship between the OU and their TP as reflected in the TP graph. The TP graph is maintained and controlled by the system independently of the OU and the TP. The TG may route the data based on instructions associated with the relationship that is reflected in the TP graph. The instructions associated with the relationship may specify network based services provided by the TG. An orchestration component may operate to orchestrate the performance of the network based services. The TG then communicates the processed and/or produced data to the TP.

  • Publication number: 20180213202
    Abstract: A method includes receiving a 360-degree video. The method further includes determining one or more regions of interest (ROIs) within the 360-degree video. The method further includes, for each frame in the 360-degree video, splitting the frame into a base layer that includes at least a partial view of the 360-degree video and splitting the frame into one or more enhancement layers that correspond to the one or more ROIs. The method further includes receiving the base layer and, based on a viewing direction of an end user, the one or more enhancement layers. The method further includes generating a video stream from the base layer and, based on the viewing direction of the end user, the one or more enhancement layers. The method includes providing the video stream to a decoder for decoding.

  • Publication number: 20180186671
    Abstract: A water treatment equipment includes a reaction chamber, a waveform generator, and a controller. The reaction chamber includes a pipe having a first electrode and a second electrode. The first and second electrodes are coupled to a waveform generator. The reaction chamber includes a water inlet, and a water outlet. The waveform generator is coupled to the first and second electrodes. The waveform generator is configured to generate an electrical current with a frequency that is substantially equal to the electrical resonance of the pipe of the reaction chamber. The controller is configured to control the waveform generator, wherein the reaction chamber is configured to enable a flow of ozone and water to be treated through the pipe.

  • Publication number: 20180179097
    Abstract: An embodiment method includes generating a first water product and a sludge of contaminants from water to be treated using an advanced electronic-oxidation process. The advanced electronic-oxidation process includes an electronic treatment comprising a combination of electrocoagulation, electro-flocculation, electro-chlorinator, and electro-dialysis operated in synchronization with ozone. The method further includes separating the sludge of contaminants from the first water product using a filtration process, and filtering the first water product to produce a second water product and a concentrated water byproduct. The filtering includes a first sub-stage to remove particles greater than 0.02 ?m to about 0.05 ?m followed by a second sub-stage that includes a reverse osmosis process or a nano-filtration process.

  • Patent number: 9790446
    Abstract: The present invention relates to the use of a chemical composition to modify the physical properties (viscosity and interfacial tension) of heavy and extra-heavy crude oils, to increase their mobility. The chemical composition comprises or consists of a combination of systems based on ionic and non-ionic liquids, which may be pure or modified, mixed in an aqueous or organic medium as a dispersing agent, depending on the nature of the crude to be treated, together with a surfactant. The composition is mixed with the crude oil at a temperature between 5 and 100° C., at pressures from 1 atm (14.7 psi) up to about 680.2 atm (10,000 psi). The composition can be mixed with heavy crude oils, at the point of extraction from the well in the field, during the transport of crude oil in pipelines, or in the well discharge pipelines.

  • Patent number: 9434323
    Abstract: A method of fitting an attachment, or a trim, onto a portion of a profiled strip, or onto a portion of a profiled strip fastened to a periphery of a glazing pane, a fitting operation being carried out by an intermediate fastening device. The intermediate fastening device includes at least one clip including having at least one upstream cooperating part configured to cooperate with the profiled strip and a downstream cooperating part configured to cooperate with the attachment. The method includes fastening the intermediate fastening device onto the profiled strip. The intermediate fastening device includes an upstream cooperating part having a plurality of deformable catching tabs, the tabs being deformed by applying a force to the ends of the tabs toward the material of the profiled strip in two opposed directions so as to penetrate the material of the profiled strip during the fastening.

  • Patent number: 9226493
    Abstract: A system for deterring animals and humans from entering protected sprinkler zones. Motion sensors are placed in an area to be protected. Upon detection of a trespasser (e.g., animals or humans) within the protected area, the sensors produce a signal for activating sprinklers in the zone and/or other appropriate zones. The sensor output can be electrically connected to a step down transformer, which is connected to an appropriate sprinkler valve or to the sprinkler valve output at, for example, the sprinkler control box. The sprinkler valve can be activated and an appropriate sprinkler zone turned on to spray the trespasser with water. New or existing sprinkler systems can be utilized for varmint and/or intruder deterrent without utilizing complex electronics.
