  • Patent number: 10430253
    Abstract: Provided a method, system, and article of manufacture for updating workflow nodes in a workflow. A workflow program processes user input at one node in a workflow comprised of nodes and workflow paths connecting the nodes, wherein the user provides user input to traverse through at least one workflow path to reach the current node. The workflow program transmits information on a current node to an analyzer. The analyzer processes the information on the current node to determine whether there are modifications to at least one subsequent node following the current node over at least one workflow path from the current node. The analyzer transmits to the workflow program an update including modifications to the at least one subsequent node in response to determining the modifications.

  • Patent number: 10105558
    Abstract: A fire suppression system includes a high pressure inert gas source configured to provide a first inert gas output and a low pressure inert gas source configured to provide a second inert gas output. A distribution network is connected with the high pressure inert gas source and the low pressure inert gas source to distribute the first inert gas output and the second inert gas output throughout a confined space. A volume reduction system is positioned within the confined space and includes a seal member. The seal member is selectively deployable between a first position and a second position to isolate a first volume of the confined space from a second volume of the confined space and reduce an amount of the first inert gas output and the second inert gas output required to respond to a fire threat within the confined space.

  • Patent number: 9333983
    Abstract: A steering wheel is configured as a dual-state input device configured to operate in two distinct states based on a current driving mode. In a manual driving mode, the input device is configured to control a limited set of vehicle functions and in an autonomous mode the input device is configured to control an expanded set of vehicle functions. The steering wheel includes a wheel rim movably mounted on a steering column and a hub disposed within a center of the wheel rim on the steering column, the main body portion comprising an interactive touch screen disposed on the main body portion. The wheel rim is configured to disengage from the hub and move along the steering column to a retracted position.

  • Publication number: 20130086615
    Abstract: Extensible media and/or activity sharing within a voice call or concurrent real-time communication session is enabled. A concurrent voice call may contextualize shared media and/or activities. Users may share live experiences within the context of a voice call. Continuous, changing real-time media types such as periodic media (e.g., a user's current location) and streaming media (e.g., what the user is currently “seeing” through their personal video camera) may be shared, as well as interactive activities and atomic media types such as an image or a text message. Such sharing may have a unidirectional modality, for example, one party may offer to share media and/or an activity and another party may accept or reject it. Once accepted, the media and/or activity may be available until the sharing party terminates the call or ends the sharing. Conventional mobile computing environments may be adapted to enable rapid, wide-spread adoption of these communication modalities.

  • Publication number: 20120217027
    Abstract: A method for fire suppression includes flowing a first inert gas output into an enclosed space at a high rate of discharge and flowing a second inert gas output into the enclosed space at a low rate of discharge. The method further includes metering an odorant into the second inert gas to provide an extended warning that inert gas is present in the enclosed space.

  • Publication number: 20120217028
    Abstract: A fire suppression and warning system for an aircraft includes an inert gas delivery system, an inert gas indicator, an on-ground indicator, and a warning device. The inert gas delivery system delivers an inert gas output to an enclosed space on the aircraft. The inert gas indicator signals that the inert gas delivery system has delivered the inert gas output to the enclosed space. The on-ground indicator signals that the aircraft is located on the ground. The warning device actively warns that the inert gas output is present in the enclosed space in response to a signal from the inert gas indicator and a signal from the on-ground indicator.

  • Publication number: 20120012346
    Abstract: A method for protecting a user in an enclosed environment includes providing an enclosed environment that holds cargo that has first odor; flowing a gas to the enclosed environment; and adding an odorant having a second odor to the gas, the first odor being distinctive from the second odor such that a presence of the second odorant provides a warning that the gas is present.

  • Publication number: 20080054580
    Abstract: The installation of equipment such as large medical autoclaves requires movement of the equipment from the palletized shipping container to the final installation point in a typically medical facility. In the past, methods used to move the equipment involved major dis-assembly of the associated piping, electrical, and control components typically found inside and adjacent to the equipment. Once the unit was stripped of external components, the main portion of the unit would be jacked and blocked until it was free of the shipping pallet. It would then be moved by devices not intended for moving medical equipment. The aforementioned methods were commonly time-consuming, prone to damage the equipment, and presented safety hazards to the installation contractors. The following claim describes a device, hereafter known as “Glaser Transport” that is designed for controlled lifting, moving, and lowering of large equipment, typically medical autoclaves, medical sterilizers, and other large non-typical equipment.
