  • Patent number: 11353229
    Abstract: A programmable thermostat supports at least one attribute where each different attribute values may support different sets of thermostatic settings. The programmable thermostat may be programmed based on the different attribute values rather than on temperature set points that are traditionally mapped to programmed times. Each set may include settings for a plurality of controlled equipment including a heating/cooling system, fan, ventilator, humidifier, and/or de-humidifier. Each embodiment may support attribute values associated with an occupancy attribute (which is indicative whether or not people are occupying an environmental entity) and/or a scenario attribute (which flexibly maps different thermostatic settings to different scenario attribute values). Stored configuration data about the thermostatic settings may be organized as a tree structure, where the leaves correspond to the thermostatic settings.

  • Patent number: 11314493
    Abstract: An industrial integrated development environment (IDE) provides a development framework for designing, programming, and configuring multiple aspects of an industrial automation system using a common design environment and data model. Projects creating using embodiments of the IDE system can be built on an object-based model rather than, or in addition to, a tag-based architecture. To this end, the IDE system can support the use of automation objects that serve as building blocks for this object-based development structure. To ensure consistency within and between projects, as well as to ensure that a given industrial project is dynamically updated to reflect changes to an industrial asset's attributes (e.g., control code, visualization definitions, testing scripts, analytic code, etc.), embodiments of the IDE system can use automation object inheritance features to propagate changes made to an automation object definition to all instances of the automation object used throughout a control project.

  • Patent number: 11120967
    Abstract: In the case of an in situ observation with a charged particle beam apparatus, an observer who is not an expert in the charged particle beam apparatus needs to maintain the field of view of the observation that changes from moment to moment while watching a monitor, and thus, adjustment of the field of view needs to be controllable in real time with a good operability. In order to eliminate the need for an observer to move the line of sight, a live image and a comparison image are overlapped and displayed. At this time, an interface is devised, such that overlapping of two images can be executed without giving stress to the observer. The observer presses a button on an operation screen, thereby displaying a superimposed image, which is obtained by making the comparison image matching the size of a first display area configured to display the live image translucent and superimposing the translucent comparison image on the live image, at the position of the first display area of the image display device.

  • Patent number: 11106569
    Abstract: A requirements to test (R2T) system is implemented, which provides an automated system by which a user interface (UI)-test automation script package is generated and the generated test scripts therein are executed against software. A visualized workflow is translated into some machine-consumable formatted file. The translated workflow is utilized by an artificial intelligence driven automated R2T engine to discover paths through the workflow, a series of executable steps for the paths that detail how the software will be used, and ultimately test scripts that are generated using pre-defined validation templates. An automation platform executes the test scripts through the software associated with the workflow, which automatically captures evidence of the executed test scripts to fulfill computer system validation requirements. The R2T system provides an automated solution for test script creation and system validation to expedite the validation process and thereby streamline a software's time to market.

  • Patent number: 11062523
    Abstract: The invention relates to creating actual object data for mixed reality applications. In some embodiments, the invention includes using a mixed reality controller to (1) define a coordinate system frame of reference for a target object, the coordinate system frame of reference including an initial point of the target object and at least one directional axis that are specified by a user of the mixed reality controller, (2) define additional points of the target object, and (3) define interface elements of the target object. A 3D model of the target object is generated based on the coordinate system frame of reference, the additional points, and the interface elements. After receiving input metadata for defining interface characteristics for the interface elements displayed on the 3D model, the input metadata is sued to generate a workflow for operating the target object in a mixed reality environment.
