  • Patent number: 10386306
    Abstract: The invention provides a method of assessing the potential color protecting effect in vivo of a test formulation such as rinse-off hair treatment formulation, the method comprising the steps of: providing a sample of the test formulation to be assessed; providing a model substrate in the form of a hair switch which has been artificially colored; applying the test formulation to the hair switch; subsequently rinsing the test formulation from the hair switch; collecting the rinse liquor and analysing it for the presence of eluted color; characterized in that the artificial color used to color the hair switch is a permanent hair colorant with a shade level 1 or 2 according to the International Color Chart (I.C.C.). The method provides improved sensitivity and differentiation, and enables the tester to compare different technologies in terms of effectiveness.

  • Publication number: 20190243913
    Abstract: The storage of events of multiple types in a queriable table. The queriable table has at least one common column that corresponds to a field that is common across events regardless of event type. The queriable table also has at least one field-varying column that corresponds to a type-dependent field that depends on event type. The queriable table is populated using multiple events. For instance, the event could be at least some log events that are received from multiple computing systems. The population occurs by assigning each event to a row of the queriable table. The common column is populated with values taken the same common field across event types. On the other hand, the field-varying column is populated with values of different fields from those events depending on the event type.

    Abstract: Systems and methods for controlling an autonomous vehicle based on a passenger-initiated action are provided. In one example embodiment, a computer implemented method includes detecting, by one or more computing devices on-board an autonomous vehicle, a first status change of a vehicle door. The first status change is associated with a first user action associated with the vehicle door. The method includes detecting a second status change of the vehicle door. The second status change is associated with a second user action associated with the vehicle door. The method includes determining one or more vehicle actions based at least in part on at least one of the first status change or the second status change associated with the vehicle door. The method includes providing one or more control signals to one or more systems on-board the autonomous vehicle to implement the vehicle actions.

  • Publication number: 20190136492
    Abstract: A non-invasive thermal dispersion flow meter with chronometric monitor for fluid leak detection includes a heater, an ambient temperature sensor and a flow rate sensor which are configured to sense the temperature of a fluid in a conduit, and then monitor the flow of that fluid through the conduit. Based upon the ambient temperature sensor readings, the flow rate sensor and heater may be adjusted to optimize the operation of the system to detect leaks. Based on the sensor readings, the flow may be adjusted to prevent damage and leaks by relieving the system of excess pressure. Geographic location, occupancy sensors and occupant identifiers are used to control the system to facilitate operation and minimize leak damage when occupants are away.

  • Patent number: 10036143
    Abstract: A non-invasive thermal dispersion flow meter with chronometric monitor for fluid leak detection includes a heater, an ambient temperature sensor and a flow rate sensor which are configured to sense the temperature of a fluid in a conduit, and then monitor the flow of that fluid through the conduit. The fluid flow sensor is incorporated into a Wheatstone bridge circuit, which is used to provide increased sensitivity to the outputs of the sensors. Based upon the ambient temperature sensor readings, the flow rate sensor and heater may be adjusted to optimize the operation of the system to detect leaks. An alternative embodiment utilizes a single sensor and separate heater which work together to determine heat propagation times which in turn is used to calculate flow rate. Based on the sensor readings, the flow may be adjusted to prevent damage and leaks by relieving the system of excess pressure.
