  • Publication number: 20210272467
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an apparatus comprises a memory and a processor. The memory is to store sensor data, wherein the sensor data is captured by a plurality of sensors within an educational environment. The processor is to: access the sensor data captured by the plurality of sensors; identify a student within the educational environment based on the sensor data; detect a plurality of events associated with the student based on the sensor data, wherein each event is indicative of an attention level of the student within the educational environment; generate a report based on the plurality of events associated with the student; and send the report to a third party associated with the student.

  • Patent number: 9984476
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for reconstructing and automatically segmenting an image. In one embodiment, a method comprises acquiring projection data, the projection data comprising higher energy projection data and lower energy projection data, generating a first image from the projection data, generating a second image from the projection data, segmenting the second image to generate segments, and segmenting the first image based on the segments of the second image. In this way, an image which may otherwise prove challenging for an automatic segmentation process may be accurately segmented without sacrificing textural details of the image.

  • Patent number: 9142335
    Abstract: The present invention relates to cables made of twisted conductor pairs. More specifically, the present invention relates to twisted pair communication cables for high-speed data communications applications. A twisted pair including at least two conductors extends along a generally longitudinal axis, with an insulation surrounding each of the conductors. The conductors are twisted generally longitudinally along the axis. A cable includes at least two twisted pairs and a filler. At least two of the cables are positioned along generally parallel axes for at least a predefined distance. The cables are configured to efficiently and accurately propagate high-speed data signals by, among other functions, limiting at least a subset of the following: impedance deviations, signal attenuation, and alien crosstalk along the predefined distance.

  • Publication number: 20140137779
    Abstract: Substantially pure high pressure steam is produced within a high pressure heat exchanger. Heat for the high pressure heat exchanger is provided from an outlet of an oxy-fuel combustion gas generator which discharges a steam/CO2 mixture at high pressure and temperature. The gas generator combusts oxygen and hydrocarbon fuel and mixes with water which can include contaminates therein in the form of dissolved solids or hydrocarbons. A separator is typically provided downstream of the gas generator and upstream of the heat exchanger and the steam/CO2 mixture is discharged from the gas generator at saturation temperature. A water fraction of the steam/CO2 mixture is discharged from the separator along with dissolved solids in concentrated brine form. The water heated into steam by the heat exchanger can be at least partially water separated within a condenser downstream of the heat exchanger.

  • Publication number: 20120305553
    Abstract: A stackable fluid storage tank and a sealing system for attaching to a pair of fluid containers to provide a stackable fluid storage tank. The stackable fluid storage tank includes first and second fluid containers. When the containers are mated, a first aperture on the first fluid container is in fluid communication with a second aperture on the second fluid container for providing fluid communication between the first and second fluid containers. When the containers are mated, a rigid seal tongue extending from the first fluid container is received within a seal groove defined by the second fluid container for providing a fluid-tight seal between the first and second fluid containers around the first and second apertures.

  • Publication number: 20080115500
    Abstract: A gas generator includes an oxygen inlet, a gaseous fuel inlet, a water, steam and/or CO2 inlet and a water borne fuel inlet. The water borne fuel is combusted within the gas generator along with the oxygen and the gaseous fuel to produce products of combustion including substantially only steam and carbon dioxide. The water borne fuel can be a water fuel solution, emulsion, mixture or other combination. The water borne fuel can either provide only a small portion of the total fuel into the gas generator or provide up to all of the fuel input into the gas generator. The combustion products are discharged from the gas generator and then power is extracted, such as through a turbine. The products of combustion can then be separated, such as within a condenser. Carbon dioxide is thus removed and can be readily sequestered away from the atmosphere to avoid emission of greenhouse gases.
