WO/2016/019450 ORIENTATION SYSTEM FOR IMAGE RECORDING DEVICES||WO||11.02.2016|
||PCT/CA2014/050738||WARRIAN, Kevin J. ||WARRIAN, Kevin J. |
An image recording device having a projected viewfinder is described that projects individual, or multiple sets of synchronized framing beams onto a target image that are coaxially aligned with the field of view of the camera. The set of framing beams is projected onto the target image beyond the scope of the field of view being recorded by the image recording device but still within the field of vision of the operator of the device. In this way, the operator of the image recording device will be able to clearly see the framing beams identifying the limits of the recorded areas, while not having any portion of the field of view of the image recording device obscured by the framing beams themselves.

WO/2016/019462 ONE-TO-ONE TORQUE COUPLING||WO||11.02.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/050735||KER-TRAIN HOLDINGS LTD. ||KERR, John Hugh |
A one-to-one torque coupling includes a centre member, left and right side members, and a plurality of torque transfer elements. The centre member is disposed between the side members, has a main axis of rotation and includes a plurality of holes disposed about the main axis at a radius. The side members each have a common secondary axis of rotation that is parallel to and offset from the main axis. Each side member also includes a plurality of holes that are congruent with the holes in the centre member and are disposed about the secondary axis at the radius. The torque transfer elements extend through the holes of the centre member into the holes of the side members, and rotate about a third axis that is parallel to and disposed midway between the main axis and the secondary axis. The torque transfer elements transfer torque between the centre member and the side members through rolling contact between the torque transfer elements and the holes of the centre and side members.
WO/2016/019460 DEVICE FOR CLEANING WELDS||WO||11.02.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/050733||WALTER SURFACE TECHNOLOGIES INC. ||LAPELOSA, Michele |
A device for cleaning welds. The device comprises a bristles pad, the bristles pad being electrically conductive to deliver electrical current to a weld to be cleaned when the bristles pad is in physical contact with the weld. The device further includes a bristles pad support, the bristles pad support including an elongated body receiving the bristles pad and extending along the bristles pad, the elongated body including a first section and a second section attached to each other, the first section being separable from the second section to reduce a length of the bristles pad support.
WO/2016/019471 ACTUATION DART FOR WELLBORE OPERATIONS, WELLBORE TREATMENT APPARATUS AND METHOD||WO||11.02.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/050746||PACKERS PLUS ENERGY SERVICES INC. ||SCHNELL, Rodney Alan |
A wellbore assembly including an actuation dart for actuating a target tool in tubing string. The dart is activatable downhole, such that it can be moved past tools similar to the target tool without actuating them. The target tool may include a release mechanism that releases the actuation dart after being actuate by it. Such a target tool may be useful with a second tool that retains the actuation dart against further movement down the tubing string.
WO/2016/019469 IRRIGATION GAUGE DEVICE||WO||11.02.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/050742||APURK LTD. ||KRUPA, Marek |
A water collection device is described. In one embodiment, a water collection device includes a collection tube having an inner wall, an open mouth at its upper end, and a closed bottom end, the bottom end including an upwardly projecting sidewall defining an interior projection at least partly spaced apart from the inner wall. The water collection device also includes a float within the collection tube. The float has an upper end and a lower end, the lower end having an axial bore sized to fit over the interior projection defined by the upwardly projecting sidewall.
WO/2016/019468 STRUCTURE WITH RIGID PROJECTIONS ADAPTED TO TRAVERSE A FLUID ENVIRONMENT||WO||11.02.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/050741||CHURCH, Ryan ||CHURCH, Ryan |
A structure adapted to traverse a fluid environment includes an elongate body having a root, a wingtip, a leading edge and a trailing edge; and a plurality of rigid projections each extending from a respective position along the leading edge and/or the trailing edge generally along the same plane as a front surface of the body.
WO/2016/019474 PROXIMITY ACCESS CONTROL DEVICES, SYSTEMS AND RELATED METHODS||WO||11.02.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/050750||8857911 CANADA INC. ||LUPOVICI, Jeffrey |
Access control systems and devices are provided. In accordance with one embodiment, a retrofit access control device is provided. The retrofit access control device is configured for interfacing with a legacy access control system having a legacy access control device that controls access to at least one access point, the legacy access control device being configured to interface with a legacy credentials device according to a first protocol to obtain from the legacy credentials device credentials information. The retrofit access control system comprising a reader configured for interfacing according to a second protocol with a retrofit credentials device to obtain from the retrofit credentials device credentials information and a processor for processing the credentials information obtained from the retrofit credentials device to generate an access signal compatible with the legacy access control system.
WO/2016/019467 STRUCTURE WITH RIGID WINGLET ADAPTED TO TRAVERSE A FLUID ENVIRONMENT||WO||11.02.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/050740||CHURCH, Ryan ||CHURCH, Ryan |
A structure adapted to traverse a fluid environment includes an elongate body having a root, a wingtip, a leading edge and a trailing edge; and a rigid winglet associated with the wingtip and having a winglet body extending substantially normal to one of a suction side and a pressure side of the elongate body to a termination point that is rearward of the trailing edge. In an embodiment, the structure is a rotor blade that may be incorporated into a wind turbine.
WO/2016/019458 MINIATURE MULTI-TARGET OPTICAL IMAGING APPARATUS||WO||11.02.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/050731||NEURESCENCE INC. ||SOUDAGAR, Yasaman |
A multiple target optical imaging apparatus performs optical imaging of a plurality of physically-separated imaging sites using a light source, a two-dimensional detector and a plurality of fiber bundles. Each fiber bundle has a distal end positioned adjacent to a different one of the imaging sites, and conveys source light from its proximal end to its distal end, while conveying an optical signal from its respective imaging site from its distal end to its proximal end. The optical signals may be simultaneously detected on different regions of the detector. The system is small, and may be used to image sites on an ambulatory animal, with the light source and detector located in a portable housing attached to the animal. Different types of imaging may be used, including fluorescence imaging, hyperspectral imaging, or polarization imaging.
