    Abstract: A method of simulating a pulsed radar gauge (PRG) on a tank. Provided are (i) a parametrized model of an echo reflection responsive to a transmitted radar pulse defined by an initial spatial model function, a first signal model modeling the pulse traveling through the media, and a second signal model modeling reflection and transmission of the pulse striking boundaries involving the media, and an (ii) echo curve calculation (ECC) program. The ECC program divides the signal path into path components for the pulse using the first and second signal model together as a recursive program with stop conditions to indicate an end result for the path components when taken together for reflected signals reaching the transceiver include locations of reflections and respective amplitudes. A shape of the initial model is placed at reflection locations using their respective amplitudes applied to size their amplitude to generate a simulated echo curve.

    Abstract: Multiple cookies of a client device are used to form an identifier of the client device such that a change in one or even several browser cookies does not defeat proper device recognition. The cookies are included in the identifier such that individual cookies can be parsed for separate comparison with corresponding cookies of known devices. However, to protect privacy of all devices, individual parameters of the constituent cookies are represented with irreversible hashes of the respective parameters. Recognition involves quantification of a degree of correlation between the cookies and corresponding cookies of each of the known devices. To quantify the degree of correlation, the observed stability and uniqueness of each cookie, and each cookie attribute, is considered.

  • Patent number: 10088814
    Abstract: A controller for a building system receives training data that includes input data and output data. The output data measures a state of the building system affected by both the input data and an extraneous disturbance. The controller performs a two-stage optimization process to identify system parameters and Kalman gain parameters of a dynamic model for the building system. During the first stage, the controller filters the training data to remove an effect of the extraneous disturbance from the output data and uses the filtered training data to identify the system parameters. During the second stage, the controller uses the non-filtered training data to identify the Kalman gain parameters. The controller uses the dynamic model with the identified system parameters and Kalman gain parameters to generate a setpoint for the building system. The building system uses the setpoint to affect the state measured by the output data.

  • Patent number: 10080911
    Abstract: A system for estimating a dose from a radiation therapy plan includes a memory that stores machine-readable instructions and a processor communicatively coupled to the memory, the processor operable to execute the instructions to subdivide a representation of a volume of interest into voxels. The processor also determines distances between a planned radiation field origin and each respective voxel. The processor further computes geometry-based expected (GED) metrics based on the distances, a plan parameter, and a field strength parameter. The processor sums the metrics to yield an estimated dose received by the volume of interest from the planned radiation field.

    Abstract: A method and system for simulating cardiac function of a patient. A patient-specific anatomical model of at least a portion of the patient's heart is generated from medical image data. Cardiac electrophysiology potentials are calculated over a computational domain defined by the patient-specific anatomical model for each of a plurality of time steps using a patient-specific cardiac electrophysiology model. The electrophysiology potentials acting on a plurality of nodes of the computational domain are calculated in parallel for each time step. Biomechanical forces are calculated over the computational domain for each of the plurality of time steps using a cardiac biomechanical model coupled to the cardiac electrophysiology model. The biomechanical forces acting on a plurality of nodes of the computational domain are estimated in parallel for each time step. Blood flow and cardiac movement are computed at each of the plurality of time steps based on the calculated biomechanical forces.

    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for monitoring fatigue and notifying an individual are described. The individual may be an operator of a vehicle, equipment, or machine, a student, or other person that may experience fatigue. Motion of the individual is monitored to detect a predescribed motion in response to a stimulus to first determine a base responsiveness profile. Afterwards, a current responsiveness profile is determined based on a prescribed motion in response to a stimulus, and if the current responsiveness profile exceeds a predetermined threshold of the base responsiveness profile, a notification is issued to the individual and, optionally, another person such as an employer, teacher, or parent.

  • Patent number: 10055197
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on computer storage media, for performing differential recursive evaluation. One of the methods includes receiving an original recursive expression that defines tuples belonging to an output relation. A final delta expression is generated including repeatedly applying one or more delta rules to the initial delta expression, wherein the final delta expression has at least one call to a delta relation that represents tuples generated by the final delta expression on a previous iteration. Until the final delta expression generates no new tuples, the final delta expression is evaluated using the tuples computed by the final delta expression on the previous iteration wherever the call to the delta relation occurs and the output relation is updated including adding to the output relation any tuples newly generated by evaluating the final delta expression.
