WO/2016/165000 SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR SEPARATION OF SUSPENDED SOLIDS FROM WASTE FLUID||WO||20.10.2016|
||PCT/CA2015/000241||INNOVATION WATER CLARIFICATION INC.||DUNNE, Patrick|
A separation system for the removal of suspended solids from raw fluid. Raw fluid is placed in a non-pressurized settling tank and allowed to partially settle before injection into a pressurized clarification vessel. Following a dwell period clarified fluid is discharged at the top of the clarification vessel and settled waste is removed at the bottom thereof. Constant vessel pressure is maintained during injection of raw fluid or the discharge of clarified fluid or settled waste. The system is simpler to manufacture and more efficacious in its use than prior art methods.

An articulating assembly, including a first member having a first end, a second member, and a first coupling shaft engaged with the first end of the first member and with the second member, wherein the first coupling shaft has a first coupling shaft axis, the first coupling shaft is rotatable relative to the second member about the first coupling shaft axis, wherein the first member is rotatable relative to the first coupling shaft about a swivel axis, and wherein the swivel axis is perpendicular to the first coupling shaft axis, thereby providing an articulating coupling between the first end of the first member and the second member. The articulating assembly may further include an articulating coupling between a second end of the first member and a third member.
WO/2016/165014 HIGHLY WATER-SOLUBLE SALTS OF A SHORT ACTING PHENYLALKYLAMINE CALCIUM CHANNEL BLOCKER AND USES THEREOF||WO||20.10.2016|
||PCT/CA2016/050425||MILESTONE PHARMACEUTICALS INC.||MARTIN P., Maguire|
The present invention includes surprisingly water-soluble salts of a phenylalkylamine compound that are potent antagonists of L-type calcium channels. Aqueous solutions including salts of the instant invention are formulated for nasal administration and provide a novel therapeutic platform for the treatment of stable angina, migraine, and cardiac arrhythmia, such as paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia.
WO/2016/165016 VIEW SYNTHESIS-PANORAMA||WO||20.10.2016|
||PCT/CA2016/050427||MAGOR COMMUNICATIONS CORPORATION||HUANG, Xiaodong|
Disclosed is a computer implemented system that facilitates optimized panoramic stitching, comprising an interface that receives images corresponding to different camera locations. Each image comprises a first image depicting a portion of a scene from the point of view of a first camera location and a second image depicting a portion of a scene from the point of view of a second camera location. There is an overlapping region detection component that detects an overlapping region between the first and second images, a first homography component that transforms the first image to the perspective of the overlapped region of the second image, an edge detection component that partitions and groups all edge pixels in the overlapped region of the first image and the second image according to their connectivity, a first transformation component that transforms each connected edge group in the first image based on initial positions of each edge group after transformation by the first homography component, a second transformation component that transforms each connected edge group in the first image after transformation from the first transformation component, a matching component that matches the transformed edge groups of the first image determined from the second transformation component with the edge pixels of the second image to produce edge matching results, and a second homography component that transforms the first image to the perspective of the second image based on the edge matching results. There is also a merger block which performs stitching to merge the two images together based on the edge matching results and the transformed image from the second homography component. The merger block performs the stitching along a border of the second image that is in the overlapped region, and the first transformation component and the second transformation component apply different transforms.
