Abrégé

A sensor includes a light emitter capable of producing stimulated emission. The sensor includes an optical fiber comprising at least one fiber Bragg grating. A first end of the optical fiber is optically coupled to a first emitting end of the light emitter. The fiber Bragg grating is located at a measurement region of the optical fiber away from the first end. A change in wavelength of the laser emission in the optical fiber is induced by a change in peak reflectivity of the fiber Bragg grating. The change in the peak reflectivity occurs in response to an environmental change at the measurement region, e.g., which changes a physical periodicity and/or the refractive index of the grating. The sensor includes an optical detector coupled to the optical fiber or the light emitter that detects the change in the wavelength.

Abrégé

A transferable hybrid method for prognostics of engineering systems based on fundamental degradation modes is provided. The method includes developing a degradation model that represents degradation modes shared in different domains of application through the integration of physics and machine learning. The system measures sensor signals and data processing provides for extracting health indicators correlated with the fundamental degradation modes from sensors data. For the integration of physics and machine learning, the degradation mode is separated into different phases. Before the accelerated degradation phase of a system, the method is looking out to detect when the accelerated phase begins. When accelerated phase is active, the system applies a machine-learning model to provide information on the accelerated degradation phase, and evolves the degradation towards a failure threshold in a simulation of the updated physics-based model to predict the degradation progression. The system estimates the remaining useful life of the target system.

Abrégé

A system and method provide a combination of a modular message structure, a priority-based message packing scheme, and a data packet queue management system to optimize the information content of a transmitted message in, for example, the Ocean of Things (OoT) environment. The modular message structure starts with a header that provides critical information and reference points for time and location. The rest of the message is composed of modular data packets, each of which has a data ID section that the message decoder uses for reference when reconstructing the message contents, an optional size section that specifies the length of the following data section if it can contain data of variable length, and a data section that can be compressed in a manner unique to that data type. The message packing scheme uses a combination of priority level and minimum reporting interval, both of which are dynamically configurable for each data packet type, to maximize the value of the information contained in the modular data packets included in each message. Finally, the data packet queues manage temporary storage of data packets that have been generated but not yet included in an outgoing message.

Abrégé

A feedback system (10) and method that identify characteristics of a colloid (62) and utilize the characteristics to initiate and adjust a field applied to the colloid are described. Machine learning can be leveraged to automatically identify a condition (23, 25) of the colloid and adjust the field parameters (23, 25). Sensors are utilized e.g. during supercooling to monitor a condition of the colloid being supercooled. Specifically, characteristics of the colloid are measured and used to determine whether supercooling is being achieved or whether the colloid is starting to undergo an undesirable phase change. Based on the measurements, parameters of the field can be adjusted. When desired, rate of phase change can be controlled to achieve desired characteristics of the colloid. Further, under some circumstances, a phase change (such as freezing or melting) of a colloid (such as chocolate) may be desired.

Abrégé

A computer-implemented system and method for updating user interest profiles is provided. An interest profile having a mapping of interest categories and interest scores for each interest category is obtained. User generated items are identified from online profiles and a portion of the user generated items are associated with a time stamp. A similarity mapping is performed by comparing each user generated item with each interest category. An interest index score is determined for each interest category based on one of the user generated items compared. A threshold is applied to the interest index scores for each category. The interest score associated with one such category in the mapping is replaced with the interest index score, when the interest index score for that category is above the threshold. The interest profile is adjusted by applying a decay to those interest index scores associated with time stamps determined for the categories.

Abrégé

A computer-implemented system and method for detecting vehicle occupancy is provided. Light beam pulses emitted from a lidar system are applied to a passing vehicle. Scans of an object are generated from the light beam pulses. A signal is received from each of the beam pulses reflected at a point of reflection along a segment of the vehicle. A time is measured from when each beam pulse was emitted to receipt of the signal. A distance of the signal from the lidar system is calculated using the measured time. The points of reflection for that vehicle segment are positioned in relation to one another as a scan. The scans are compiled in a consecutive order according to the vehicle and a three-dimensional image of an interior of the vehicle is generated from the consecutive scans. A presence or absence of vehicle occupancy is determined based on the three-dimensional image.

Abrégé

A method and system for diagnosing any combination of persistent and intermittent faults. The behavior of a system under test is obtained by measuring or probing the system at a particular location(s). The predicted behavior of a modeled system corresponding to the system under test is investigated by drawing inferences based on at least conditional probabilities, prior observations and component models. The predictions are compared to their corresponding points in the system under test. A determination is made if a conflict exists between the measured behavior and the predicted behavior, and the conditional probabilities are adjusted to more and more accurately reflect the action fault(s) in the system under test. The conflicts or deviations between the obtained predicted behavior and the actual behavior are used to isolate the components of the system causing the faults.

Abrégé

A Cassegrain-type concentrating solar collector cell includes primary and secondary mirrors disposed on opposing convex and concave surfaces of a light-transparent (e.g., glass) optical element. Light enters an aperture surface surrounding the secondary mirror, and is reflected by the primary mirror toward the secondary mirror, which re-reflects the light onto a photovoltaic cell. The photovoltaic cell is mounted on a central portion of heat spreader that extends over the primary mirror. The heat spreader transmits waste heat from the photovoltaic cell in a manner that evenly distributes the heat over the optical element, thereby maximizing the radiation of heat from the aperture surface into space. The heat spreader includes a thick copper layer formed on a flexible substrate (e.g., polyimide film) that is patterned with radial arms that facilitate mounting onto the convex surface of the optical element.

Abrégé

A process for generating with unification based grammars such as Lexical Functional Grammars which uses construction and analysis of generation guides to determine internal facts and eliminate incomplete edges prior to constructing a generation chart. The generation guide can then be used in the construction of the generation chart to efficiently generate with unification-based grammars such as Lexical Functional Grammars. The generation guide is an instance of a grammar that has been specialized to the input and only contains those parts of the grammar that are relevant to the input. When the generation guide is analyzed to determine internal facts a smaller generation chart is produced.
