  • Publication number: 20200301895
    Abstract: A method and software tool for identifying relationships between columns of one or more data tables are disclosed. In the disclosed method, a relationship indicator is computed for each of a plurality of column pairs, each column pair comprising respective first and second columns selected from the one or more data tables. The relationship indicator comprises a measure of a relationship (e.g. indicating a strength or likelihood of a relationship) between data of the first column and data of the second column. Relationships between columns of the data tables are then identified in dependence on the computed relationship indicators. The identified relationships may be used to create and execute data queries.

    Abstract: A gimbal mount system is configured to a couple to a gimbal coupled to and securing a camera. The gimbal mount system includes a handle, a power source, a user interface, a mounting interface, a communication interface, and a communication bus. The mounting interface is located within an end of the gimbal mount system and includes an opening configured to receive a reciprocal mounting protrusion of the gimbal. A locking mechanism removably couples the gimbal to the gimbal mount system. The communication interface is located within the mounting interface and is configured to couple to a reciprocal communication interface of the gimbal. The communication bus is coupled to the power source, user interface, and communication interface and is configured to provide power from the power source to the gimbal. The communication bus may provide instructions to the gimbal based on user input received via the user interface.

  • Publication number: 20200147816
    Abstract: A combination tandem cutting ax head and adz is disclosed that is adapted to firefighting. The ax may include a front end that is divided between a concave portion and a flat section. The concavity creates edges for cutting through surfaces, while the flat section functions to hinder the ax head from becoming wedged in the material. An adz may be provided in which the fulcrum is raised above the head and located between the handle and the adz edge, which increases the lever arm.
