  • Publication number: 20220242738
    Abstract: A method for automatically dispensing and vending carbon dioxide (CO2) snow block is disclosed. The automatic dispensing system contains multiple containers of different volumes. A user can input the volume of CO2 snow block into a controller, such as a programmable logic controller (PLC). The controller uses the inputted volume and process information to determine which container to utilize for the automated filling process. The controller can configure the selected container into a filling orientation into which liquid CO2 can flow to generate CO2 snow block. Upon detection of the completion of the fill, the container is configured into a dispensing orientation from which the CO2 snow block is released into an access region from which the user can retrieve the CO2 snow block. The control methodology may also be used to auto charge a single container located within a charging station as disclosed herein.

  • Patent number: 11374596
    Abstract: The disclosure discloses an algebraic decoding method and a decoder for a (n, n(n?1), n?1) permutation group code in a communication modulation system. The basic principle of the decoding method is: assuming that two code elements p(r1)=s1 and p(r2)=s2 can be correctly detected in a received real vector with a length of n, including their element values s1, s2 and position indices r1, r2 in the vector, an intermediate parameter w is determined by solving an equation (r1?r2)w=(s1?s2)(mod n); and each code element is calculated by w according to p(i)=(s1+(n?r1+i)w)(mod n), i=1, 2, . . . , n. The decoder is mainly composed of multiple n-dimensional registers, a w calculator, n code element calculators, and a code element buffer. In the disclosure, in a case where a receiver only correctly detects two code elements in a transmitted codeword with a length of n, the codeword can be correctly decoded by using the received information of the two code elements.
