WO/2015/074132 BEARING WITH SPHERICAL ROTATIONAL DAMPING||WO||28.05.2015|
||PCT/CA2013/050883||TRENCH LIMITED||KHAN, Kamran|
A damping bearing (34, 36) provides relative rotations between first and second subassemblies about a point (40). The first subassembly includes a fluid containment vessel (26, 26C, 26D) containing a fluid (32). The second subassembly includes a plunger (42) with a fluid deformation element (46, 46B) immersed in the fluid. The relative rotations are damped by viscosity of the fluid resisting motions of the fluid deformation element. Damping is especially effective in multiple planes containing a given line (23 or 43) through the point (40). The plunger may have rotational symmetry, and may be cylindrical about the given line. Lateral fluid bounding surfaces (50, 52, 2D) of the containment vessel may be spherical about the point, or may be shaped to provide clearance to the deformation element that varies with angular displacement between the first and second subassemblies to provide a predetermined damping profile.
WO/2015/074134 COMPUTERIZED ORDER MATCHING WITH FEES SELECTABLE BY PARTICIPANTS||WO||28.05.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/000477||TSX INC.||DJURDJEVIC, Deana|
Passive or rested orders can be priority ranked in an order book database based on price and further based on fee indications for the rested orders. Fee indications may include rebate give-ups that are given to the entities making active orders. Newly incoming or active orders are matched to rested orders according to the ranking. Entities trading passively may thus be able to prioritize rested orders by way of selectable rebate give-up, and further may peg rebate give-up at or above the market. Entities trading actively may specify a minimum rebate give-up required from the book to effect a trade.
WO/2015/074142 DETECTING END OF STROKE IN A HYDRAULIC MOTOR||WO||28.05.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/051063||WESTPORT POWER INC.||BATENBURG, Gregory A.|
It is challenging to detect end of stroke for hydraulically actuated, reciprocating piston pumps for a variety of reasons. When the pump pressurizes a process fluid to a 10 relatively low pressure the magnitude of hydraulic fluid pressure is not as distinct compared to the magnitude of a pressure drop across a shuttle valve employed to detect end of stroke, which makes detecting the end of stroke event difficult. A method is disclosed for detecting end of a piston stroke in a hydraulic motor comprising a reciprocating piston with a shuttle valve. The method comprises 1 detecting end of piston stroke when a magnitude of a rate of change of hydraulic fluid pressure is substantially greater than a magnitude of a mean rate of change of hydraulic fluid pressure over said piston stroke; and noise in a hydraulic fluid pressure signal is substantially negligible.
WO/2015/074143 CONTROL SYSTEM FOR A FLEXIBLE FUEL INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE||WO||28.05.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/051066||WESTPORT POWER INC.||BZYMEK, Raymond|
Abstract In previous control systems for engines that fuelled with a conventional fuel and an alternative fuel, a conventional fuel controller controlled fuelling for both fuels. This required extensive modifications to both the conventional fuel controller and an alternative fuel controller. A control system for an engine comprises a first control unit programmed to generate a first pulse width to actuate a first fuel injector to introduce a first fuel; a second control unit programmed to generate a second pulse width to actuate a second fuel injector to introduce a second fuel; and a communication line between the first and second control units. The first control unit determines a total fuel energy amount to be introduced by the first and second fuel injectors. The second control unit determines a first fraction of the total fuel energy amount to be from the first fuel and a second fraction of the total fuel energy amount to be from the second fuel.
WO/2015/074140 METHOD AND APPARATUS TO MEASURE MOTION CHARACTERISTICS FOR BICYCLES AND ANY VEHICLES ON WHEELS||WO||28.05.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/000845||SAVCHENKO, Vladimir||SAVCHENKO, Vladimir|
A sensor system for use with a host device a vehicle comprises a frame and at least one wheel comprises first and second sensors. The first sensor is associated with the at least one wheel of the vehicle, and the second sensor is associated with a frame of the wheel. The first sensor generates wheel data indicative of movement of the wheel with respect to a magnetic pole of the Earth or a magnet on a frame and transmits the wheel data such as revolution angle, direction of the revolution and angular acceleration of the wheel to the host device. The second sensor generates frame data indicative of movement of the frame with respect to a direction of gravity and transmits the frame data such as an angle of travelling surface relative to horizon, the direction of the gravity g force, cadence, the lateral leaning angle and the frequency of change for lateral leaning from left to right to the host device.
WO/2015/074148 METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR DELIVERING A GASEOUS FUEL INTO THE AIR INTAKE SYSTEM OF AN INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE||WO||28.05.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/051106||WESTPORT POWER INC.||BATENBURG, Gregory A.|
Abstract A method and system is disclosed for delivering a cryogenically stored fuel in a gaseous state into the air intake system of a gaseous fuelled internal combustion engine. The method comprises determining the flow rate capacity in the engine system's fuel delivery line, comparing the determined flow rate capacity to a required flow rate demand and supplying fuel in gaseous state directly from the vapor space of the cryogenic storage vessel to the fuel delivery line that supplies fuel to the engine, when the flow rate capacity is equal to or higher than the required flow rate demand. The method further comprises activating a cryogenic pump to deliver fuel to the internal combustion engine from the liquid space of the cryogenic storage vessel when the determined flow rate capacity is lower than the required flow rate demand.

WO/2015/074149 METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR ACCELERATED OR CONTROLLED DEGASSING OF ROASTED COFFEE||WO||28.05.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/051107||2266170 ONTARIO INC.||FU, Yucheng|
An apparatus for accelerated or controlled degassing of roasted coffee. The apparatus comprises a container for receiving and retaining roasted coffee, a source of inert gas in fluid communication with the container, and a controller. The controller includes a timer and a valve. The valve is operatively associated with the source of inert gas and has an open and a closed position. When in its closed position the valve restricts the flow of inert gas into the container. When in its open position the valve permits the flow of inert gas into the container such that the inert gas displaces at least a portion of the gas in the container. The timer causes the valve to cycle between its open and closed positions at predetermined time intervals. The flow of inert gas can also be controlled through the use of a gas sensor in communication with the interior of the container.
WO/2015/074150 MANAGED DOMAINS FOR REMOTE CONTENT AND CONFIGURATION CONTROL ON MOBILE INFORMATION DEVICES||WO||28.05.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/051109||GRAPHITE SOFTWARE CORPORATION||MAIN, Alexander James|
A technique is disclosed for remotely managing isolated domains on mobile devices. A request is received from the mobile device to instantiate a managed domain. A managed domain configuration is determined and comprises a security policy controlling access to content of the managed domain of the subscribing mobile device, a content specification identifying the content to be downloaded by the subscribing mobile device into the managed domain, and a content configuration identifying a configuration of the content on the subscribing mobile device. The managed domain configuration is sent to the subscribing mobile device to instantiate a secure, managed domain whose policy, content and content configuration is remotely controlled. The technique is useful for advertising and brand promotion on mobile devices as it simultaneously enables detailed control over the presentation of content by a curator while ensuring privacy and security protection of the other apps, accounts and data on the mobile device.
