WO/2016/168912 METHOD FOR PRODUCING KISS CUT FLUID FLOW FIELD PLATES||WO||27.10.2016|
||PCT/CA2016/000121||ENERGYOR TECHNOLOGIES INC.||JONES, Thomas David|
Disclosed herein is a method for producing fluid flow field plates with complex flow field geometries. The method includes locating an electrically conductive sheet on top of another electrically conductive sheet so that they are in intimate contact with each other. The sheets are sealed together, with a manifold opening cut through the sheets. A channel for a fluid is created by kiss cutting through the first sheet so that the channel is in fluid communication with the manifold opening.
WO/2016/168913 METHODS AND DEVICES FOR OPTICAL ABERRATION CORRECTION||WO||27.10.2016|
||PCT/CA2016/000122||ESIGHT CORP.||JONES, Frank|
Near-to-eye displays within head mounted devices offer both users with and without visual impairments enhanced visual experiences either by improving or augmenting their visual perception. Unless the user directly views the display without intermediate optical elements then the designer must consider chromatic as well as other aberrations. Within the prior art the optical train is either complex through additional corrective elements adding to weight, cost, and size or through image processing. However, real time applications with mobile users require low latency to avoid physical side effects. Accordingly, it would be beneficial to provide near-to-eye displays mitigating these distortions and chromatic aberrations through pre-distortion based electronic processing techniques in conjunction with design optimization of the optical train with low weight, low volume, low complexity, and low cost. Further, it would be beneficial to exploit consumer grade low cost graphics processing units rather than application specific circuits.

||PCT/CA2016/000125||STRADA SIGN SUPPLY INC.||MANGIALARDI, Dominic|
A sign comprising a substrate having a planar sign face and an opposing planar back face having peripheral side edges; a recessed portion formed within said substrate having an opening and a bottom, and side walls; a RFID tag assembly having a metal shielding sheet, said RFID tag assembly having a mounting substrate, a double-sided adhesive sheet with one side adhered to a metal shielding sheet and an opposing side adhered to said bottom of said recessed portion; a retroreflective sheeting having a double-sided pressure-sensitive adhesive sheeting for application over said RFID tag assembly to hermetically seal said RFID tag assembly within said recessed portion; a translucent vinyl backed material with primary indicia applied to said retroreflective sheeting; and a label with secondary indicia applied to said back face via label adhesive.
WO/2016/168910 PREDICTIVE BUILDING CONTROL SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR OPTIMIZING ENERGY USE AND THERMAL COMFORT FOR A BUILDING OR NETWORK OF BUILDINGS||WO||27.10.2016|
||PCT/CA2016/000107||GREEN POWER LABS INC.||PAVLOVSKI, Alexandre|
A method for controlling temperature in a thermal zone within a building, comprising: using a processor, receiving a desired temperature range for the thermal zone; determining a forecast ambient temperature value for an external surface of the building proximate the thermal zone; using a predictive model for the building, determining set points for a heating, ventilating, and air conditioning ("HVAC") system associated with the thermal zone that minimize energy use by the building; the desired temperature range and the forecast ambient temperature value being inputs to the predictive model; the predictive model being trained using respective historical measured value data for at least one of the inputs; and, controlling the HVAC system with the set points to maintain an actual temperature value of the thermal zone within the desired temperature range for the thermal zone.
WO/2016/168917 PLASTIC TUBE BENDING METHOD AND APPARATUS||WO||27.10.2016|
||PCT/CA2016/050302||CMP AUTOMATION INC.||WEINHARDT, Henry D.|
A plastic tube (1) is bent by advancing the tube to position a desired first bend location (105) of the tube at a bending/cooling station (30), the bend location of the tube having been previously heated by a tube heating assembly (20) sufficiently for bending. The tube heating assembly is moved to a next desired bend location (104) of the tube. Bending and cooling the tube at the first bend location, and heating the next desired bend location, take place in overlapping time windows, before advancing the tube to position the next desired bend location of the tube at the bending/cooling station. Total cycle time for heating, bending and cooling is thereby substantially reduced compared to carrying out heating, bending and cooling sequentially. The apparatus is controlled by PLC or PC-based programs, which effect movement via servomotors (14, 18, 25, 34, 36) and also control other parameters such as heating and cooling times and temperatures.

WO/2016/168919 IMPROVEMENT TO TEAT CUP, MILKING HEAD AND MILKING OPERATIONS||WO||27.10.2016|
||PCT/CA2016/050405||MILKOMAX, SOLUTIONS LAITIÈRES INC.||ROUSSEAU, Victor|
An improved teat cup, teat cup sleeve, milking machine and milking method provides cleaner milk by drawing air into the milk stream from away from the teat cup. The teat cup may include an air duct having a first end in fluid communication with the milk conduit extending outside of the shell to a second end located away from the shell of the teat cup. The air duct may form part of an air passage that extends between the milk conduit and an air inlet which allows control of the source, flow and purity of air entering the milk stream.
