||WO||WO/2014/134699 - FORMING A TRANSPARENT METAL OXIDE LAYER ON A CONDUCTIVE SURFACE OF A DIELECTRIC SUBSTRATE||12.09.2014||
||PCT/CA2013/000208||PACIFIC SURF PARTNERS CORP.||RUBIN, Leonid, B.|
A method and apparatus of forming a transparent metal oxide layer on a conductive surface of a dielectric substrate involves exposing first and second conductive surface portions of the conductive surface of the dielectric substrate to first and second electrolytes respectively to form first and second electrochemical cells in which the first conductive surface is part of the first electrochemical cell and the second conductive surface is part of the second electrochemical cell and wherein the electrochemical cells are electrically connected together by the conductive surface of the dielectric substrate. An electric potential applied across first and second counter electrodes in the first and second cells respectively drives an electric current through the first and second electrolytes and causes metal ions and oxygen in the second electrolyte to form the transparent metal oxide layer on the second conductive surface portion when a current is passed through the first and second electrolytes. The transparent metal oxide layer may be made non-conductive or conductive or even semi-conductive through the absence or inclusion of dopant in the second electrolyte. A conductive surface of a dielectric substrate of any length can be uniformly plated with a transparent metal oxide layer by moving the dielectric substrate relative to the first and second electrolytes while exposing the first and second surface portions to the first and second electrolytes respectively.

||PCT/CA2014/000044||NOVA CHEMICALS (INTERNATIONAL) S. A.||SIMANZHENKOV, Vasily|
Chemical complexes and processes for the oxidative dehydrogenation (ODH) of paraffins to olefins are disclosed. Said chemical complexes comprise a steam cracker, a C2 splitter, and a hydrogenation unit to remove acetylene wherein an oxidative dehydrogenation unit is integrated with the C2 splitter or the hydrogenation unit to remove acetylene. The oxidative dehydrogenation process can be integrated into back end separation processes of a conventional steam cracker to increase capacity and/or to provide a lower energy route to produce olefins, thus reducing costs. Oxidative dehydrogenation processes may be integrated with a number of processes in a chemical plant such as polymerization processes, and the manufacture of glycols, carboxylic acids and esters.

||PCT/CA2014/000014||VOICEAGE CORPORATION||VAILLANCOURT, Tommy|
The present disclosure relates to a device and method for reducing quantization noise in a signal contained in a time-domain excitation decoded by a time-domain decoder. The decoded time-domain excitation is converted into a frequency-domain excitation. A weighting mask is produced for retrieving spectral information lost in the quantization noise. The frequency- domain excitation is modified to increase spectral dynamics by application of the weighting mask. The modified frequency-domain excitation is converted into a modified time-domain excitation. The method and device can be used for improving music content rendering of linear-prediction (LP) based codecs. Optionally, a synthesis of the decoded time-domain excitation may be classified into one of a first set of excitation categories and a second set of excitation categories, the second set including INACTIVE or UNVOICED categories, the first set including an OTHER category.

||WO||WO/2014/134719 - METHOD, SYSTEM AND APPARATUS FOR ASSESSING WHEEL CONDITION ON A VEHICLE||12.09.2014||
||PCT/CA2014/000228||LEE, Keith||LEE, Keith|
A method of assessing a condition of a wheel on a vehicle involves contactlessly determining distance of a first location on the wheel from a fixed point not on the wheel at a first time while the vehicle is moving and contactlessly determining distance of a second location on the wheel from the fixed point at a second time after the vehicle has moved. The two distances are compared to determine an offset between the first and second locations on the wheel. The offset provides an indication of tire wearing angle of the wheel while the vehicle is moving. The method can be used to assess wheel alignment and wheel suspension. An apparatus and system for effecting the method involves the use of a displacement sensor, especially an optical displacement sensor (e.g. a laser) for making the distance determinations. The system and apparatus is completely contactless and only one stationary displacement sensor is required to make the appropriate distance measurements to the wheel on a moving vehicle.

||PCT/CA2014/050148||RICKER, Joshua J.||RICKER, Joshua J.|
A device and method for securing an animal boot to an animal's foot is taught. The device includes a pair of handles, a securing means and a pair of jaws that are pivotally attached to the pair of handles by the securing means. When the pair of jaws are in a closed position, an open end of the animal boot is attached around the sides of the pair of jaws. Squeezing the pair of handles towards each other causes the pair of jaws to extend away from each other to an open position and also causes the pair of jaws to expand the open end of the animal boot.
