WO/2015/058303 IMPROVED SYSTEM FOR POST PROCESSING GNSS/INS MEASUREMENT DATA AND CAMERA IMAGE DATA||WO||30.04.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/051023||NOVATEL INC.||ROESLER, Gregory J.|
A system for performing post processing of GNSS and INS measurement data and image data to provide highly accurate location information for a camera, an INS measurement unit or both performs first processing operations using the GNSS and INS measurement data, to determine position, velocity and attitude solutions. The system then analyzes the solutions to determine which measurement data provide sufficiently reliable solutions from which to determine the precise position, velocity and attitude of the camera, and thus, which measurement data do not provide sufficiently reliable solutions. The system and method then performs more time consuming and processing intensive processing operations using the measurement data and camera image data that arc associated with solutions that are not sufficiently reliable.
WO/2015/058305 COATING FOR PAPER ADAPTED FOR INKJET PRINTING||WO||30.04.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/051027||ECOSYNTHETIX INC.||DI RISIO, Sabina|
This specification describes a composition for coating on a substrate, such as paper, useful for inkjet printing with ink having an anionic dye. The coating comprises a cationic binder and preferably pigment. The binder may be made of latex forming cationic biopolymer particles, for example made from cationic starch. Cationic biopolymer polymers are used as a cationic fixative. Optionally, a salt with a polyvalent metal ion may be added to the composition. With this addition, the substrate is also suitable for printing with dispersed pigment based inkjet ink.
WO/2015/058310 METHOD AND SYSTEM OF FAST NESTED-LOOP CIRCUIT VERIFICATION FOR PROCESS AND ENVIRONMENTAL VARIATION AND HIERARCHICAL CIRCUITS||WO||30.04.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/051034||SOLIDO DESIGN AUTOMATION INC.||MCCONAGHY, Trent, Lorne|
A computer-implemented method for quickly analyzing the effect of process, voltage, temperature, and other variations when the variation analysis or circuit structure can be hierarchically composed into nested loops. The method has two main steps: first, it hierarchically generates a set of points and inserts them into a flat list of tuples, where each tuple contains a point from each level in the looping hierarchy. Second, it efficiently identifies and simulates failing tuples with the assistance of modeling to order the tuples to simulate. By using the present method, a designer does not have to simulate the full ECD at each and every statistical process point or PVT corner, which can same considerable time or compute effort.
WO/2015/058278 METHOD OF PRODUCING AND PACKAGING ICE CUBES||WO||30.04.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/000743||JOBB, Grant Richard||JOBB, Grant Richard|
A method of producing ice cubes in a mould and pan in cool ambient air wherein the steps of removing the mould from the pan and removing the ice cubes from the mould are carried out without any heating or thawing to obtain individual ice cubes with a substantially dry outer surface. A method of producing a block of ice cubes in cool ambient air is also provided wherein the steps above are repeated so that the ice cubes drop row above row to produce a block of ice cubes. A method of packaging ice cubes is also provided comprising obtaining a plurality of ice cubes with a substantially dry outer surface and of a stackable shape. The ice cubes are arranged adjacently into a block, and the block is encapsulated in a suitable packaging material.
WO/2015/058282 METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PAYING FOR WEB CONTENT, VIRTUAL GOODS AND GOODS OF SMALL VALUE||WO||30.04.2015|
||PCT/CA2014/000758||MICROPEBBLES INC.||CHOW, Stanley|
The subject application relates to electronic commerce (i.e. e-commerce or e-payment) technology and more particularly, to a method and system for paying for items of small value including web content and virtual goods, over communication networks such as the Internet. One embodiment described is directed to a method of electronic payment between a payer and a payee comprising generating a secure electronic transaction by a payer device, the secure electronic transaction including a certificate having an extension setting out transaction rules. The secure electronic transaction is routed through a selected payment path of network entities from the payer device to a payee device, a network entity on each layer of a hierarchy in the path adding a respective certificate to the secure electronic transaction, along with respective extensions setting out transaction rules. Other aspects of the invention are also described, such as how to determine a selected path.
