Title: Sensor sentinel computing device

Abstract

Technologies pertaining to authenticating data output by sensors in an industrial environment are described herein. A sensor sentinel computing device receives time-series data from a sensor by way of a wireline connection. The sensor sentinel computing device generates a validation signal that is a function of the time-series signal. The sensor sentinel computing device then transmits the validation signal to a programmable logic controller in the industrial environment.

  • Systems and computer-implemented processes for storage and management of information artifacts collected by information analysts using a computing device. The processes and systems can capture a sequence of interactive operation elements that are performed by the information analyst, who is collecting an information artifact from at least one of the plurality of software applications. The information artifact can then be stored together with the interactive operation elements as a snippet on a memory device, which is operably connected to the processor. The snippet comprises a view from an analysis application, data contained in the view, and the sequence of interactivemore » operation elements stored as a provenance representation comprising operation element class, timestamp, and data object attributes for each interactive operation element in the sequence.« less
  • Described herein are technologies pertaining to computing the solar irradiance distribution on a surface of a receiver in a concentrating solar power system or glint/glare emitted from a reflective entity. A mobile computing device includes at least one camera that captures images of the Sun and the entity of interest, wherein the images have pluralities of pixels having respective pluralities of intensity values. Based upon the intensity values of the pixels in the respective images, the solar irradiance distribution on the surface of the entity or glint/glare corresponding to the entity is computed by the mobile computing device.
  • The present invention relates to a portable computing device comprising, in known manner, means for adding digital information, means for determining periods of time and display means, wherein it also comprises a nuclear detector adapted to deliver electrical signals whose amplitude spectrum depends biunivocally on the energy spectrum of the radiation in which it is placed and means for converting these signals into digital information, the addition means receiving said digital information, the means for determining periods of time controlling said addition means so as to make a calculation of the dose of nuclear radiation received during a period ofmore » time, called integral dose, which is displayed by said display means. The invention is more particularly applicable in the domain of protection against radiation, or health physics.« less
