  • Publication number: 20210324726
    Abstract: A bit used in a downhole environment has an active element that is movable relative to the bit. The bit is rotated in the downhole environment, and at least one downhole parameter is measured. The at least one downhole parameter is compared against a target parameter value, and when the at least one downhole parameter is beyond a threshold value of the target parameter value, the active element is selectively relative to the bit. Movement of the active element alters the proportion of the weight on the active element as compared to the other cutting structure of the bit. Changing the proportion of weight can be used to reduce the depth of cut of the cutting structure and to reduce or eliminate motor stall or stick-slip behavior.

  • Patent number: 10765378
    Abstract: Novel tools and techniques might provide for implementing image-based physiological status determination of users, and, in particular embodiments, for implementing physiological status determination of users based on marker-less motion-capture and generating appropriate remediation plans. In various embodiments, one or more cameras may be used to capture views of a user (e.g., an athlete, a person trying to live a healthy life, or the like) as the user is performing one or more set of motions, and the captured images may be overlaid with a skeletal framework that is compared with similar skeletal framework overlaid images for the same one or more sets of motions. The system can automatically determine a physical condition of the user or a probability that the user will suffer a physical condition based at least in part on an analysis of the comparison, which may be difficult or impossible to observe with the naked human eye.

  • Publication number: 20200248707
    Abstract: An antisurge controller for a turbocompressor system stores multiple control algorithms in a memory for the antisurge controller. The antisurge controller identifies capabilities of field devices in the turbocompressor system. The field devices include an antisurge valve and multiple sensors. The antisurge controller selects one of the multiple control algorithms based on the identified capabilities and applies the selected control algorithm to the turbocompressor system. The selected control algorithm provides the smallest surge control margin, of the surge control margins in the multiple control algorithms, that are supported by the identified capabilities.

  • Patent number: 10554818
    Abstract: A computing system and method for request management receive an incoming customer request at a request management server. Components at the server identify a type of problem associated with the request and the customer sending the request. The system searches for a customer experience profile for the identified customer in a customer database stored in a computer memory and determines based on the customer experience profile if the customer has prior experience solving the type of problem identified. The system routes the customer to an abbreviated resolution process when the customer has prior experience solving the identified type of problem and resolves the request using the abbreviated resolution process.

  • Patent number: 10451750
    Abstract: The invention concerns a scintillation detector with which high count rates and/or high resolutions are possible. The scintillator of the claimed scintillation detector is formed from pixels (2), which are separated from each other by interstices (4). Alternatively or additionally, the surface of the scintillator is divided by grooves into pixels (2). Such a structure enables not only a particularly high resolution. When multiple detector modules are used, it also allows high count rates in the range of roughly 20 MHz.
