METHODS AND APPARATUS TO COUNT PEOPLE IN IMAGES

Example apparatus disclosed herein include an analyzer to determine whether a first face rectangle is located in an overlap region of an image frame pair including a first image frame obtained from a first image sensor and a second image frame obtained from a second image sensor, the first face rectangle associated with the first image frame. Disclosed example apparatus also include a comparator to determine whether the first face rectangle is redundant to a second face rectangle when the first face rectangle is located in the overlap region of the image frame pair. Disclosed example apparatus further include an overlap eliminator to link first coordinates of the first face rectangle and second coordinates of the second face rectangle in a correlated face history when the first face rectangle is redundant to the second face rectangle, the correlated face history to identify redundant face rectangles in subsequent image frame pairs.

INLET FRAME FOR A GAS TURBINE ENGINE

An inlet frame and a method of additively manufacturing the same are provided. The inlet frame includes a forward annular body spaced apart from a rear annular body to define an inlet passageway in fluid communication with a compressor inlet. The inlet frame may define integral wash manifolds and discharge ports for directing a flow of wash fluid directly through the compressor inlet. In addition, inlet frame may define one or more integral annular heating plenums in fluid communication with a hot air source for heating regions of the inlet frame that are prone to icing conditions.

DUAL SCREEN ELECTRONIC DEVICES WITH STOWABLE KEYBOARDS

Apparatus, systems, articles of manufacture, and methods have been disclosed that include example hinges that enable a physical keyboard to be stowed between halves of a closed electronic device with dual screens. An example device includes a first screen, a second screen, a first hinge pair, and a second hinge pair. The first hinge pair and the second hinge pair enable 360 degrees of rotation between the first screen and the second screen. The device also includes a physical keyboard that is couplable to a plurality of positions on at least one of the first screen or the second screen.

AUTOMATIC DOWNHILL SNUB BRAKING

Methods and apparatus are disclosed herein that perform automatic downhill snub braking. An example apparatus disclosed herein includes an electronic powertrain controller to cause a deceleration of a vehicle in response to a first request from an electronic cruise controller, the first request responsive to a change in grade of a driving surface and an electronic brake controller to apply snub braking to the vehicle in response to a second request received from the electronic cruise controller, the second request responsive to a speed of the vehicle reaching a maximum speed.

MONITORING DEVICE FOR MONITORING CROP YIELD

A monitoring device for monitoring crop yield is disclosed. The monitoring device is mounted to a housing of a grain elevator of an agricultural work machine proximate a crop conveyor assembly arranged in the housing and has at least one aperture formed therein. A material engagement member is arranged on the mounting structure and is pivotal with respect to the mounting structure about a pivot point. The material engagement member can comprise first end and a second end opposite of the first end. At least one rotational sensor is arranged in the monitoring device and is configured to detect spatial movement or position of the material engagement member. A processing device is coupled to the at least one rotational sensor and is configured to determine an aggregate crop yield based on the detected rotational magnitude of the displacement of the first end or second end.

METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR PREDICTING AUDIENCE VIEWING BEHAVIOR

The present invention is directed to a method and system for predicting the behavior of an audience based on the biologically based responses of the audience to a presentation that provides a sensory stimulating experience and determining a measure of the level and pattern of engagement of that audience to the presentation. In particular, the invention is directed to a method and system for predicting whether an audience is likely to view a presentation in its entirety. In addition, the present invention may be used to determine the point at which an audience is likely to change their attention to an alternative sensory stimulating experience including fast forwarding through recorded content, changing the channel or leaving the room when viewing live content, or otherwise redirecting their engagement from the sensory stimulating experience.

PLAY YARDS AND METHODS OF OPERATING THE SAME

Play yards and methods of operating the same are disclosed. An example play yard includes a collapsible upper frame, a collapsible lower frame, and posts to support the upper frame above the lower frame. The posts include respective tracks. The example play yard also includes an enclosure operatively coupled to the upper frame, the lower frame and the posts. The enclosure defines an enclosure volume. The enclosure has a plurality of corner beads dimensioned for receipt in respective ones of the tracks to secure the enclosure to the posts.

CONTAINER RETENTION AND RELEASE APPARATUS FOR USE WITH AIRCRAFT

Container retention and release apparatus are disclosed. An example container retention and release apparatus includes a swaybrace to engage an exterior surface of a container. A latch is to attach to an internal receptacle of the container to retain the container. The latch is movable between a latched position to retain the container and an unlatched position to release the container. A drive is to move the latch between the latched position and the unlatched position.

METHODS AND APPARATUS TO OPTIMIZE MEMORY ALLOCATION IN RESPONSE TO A STORAGE REBALANCING EVENT

Methods and apparatus to optimize memory allocation in response to a storage rebalancing event are disclosed. An example apparatus includes a telematics agent to detect a rebalancing event based on metadata; and a decision engine to identify a cluster corresponding to the rebalancing event by processing the metadata; and increase a number of jumbo buffers in a network switch corresponding to the cluster in response to the rebalancing event.
