A smart thermal patch for adaptive thermotherapy is provided. In an embodiment, the patch can be a stretchable, non-polymeric, conductive thin film flexible and non-invasive body integrated mobile thermal heater with wireless control capabilities that can be used to provide adaptive thermotherapy. The patch can be geometrically and spatially tunable on various pain locations. Adaptability allows the amount of heating to be tuned based on the temperature of the treated portion.

A method and system can analyze, reconstruct, and/or denoise an image. The method and system can include interpreting a signal as a potential of a Schrdinger operator, decomposing the signal into squared eigenfunctions, reducing a design parameter of the Schrdinger operator, analyzing discrete spectra of the Schrdinger operator and combining the analysis of the discrete spectra to construct the image.

Cleaning system(1 00) including a brush assembly(102) for cleaning solar panels(106). The brush assembly has at least one rotatable brush(403) having a rotational axis. The rotatable brush includes a plurality of sets of bristles(2004), each extending outwardly from a core(2008). A shaft(2005) extends through the core of the brush. The shaft is a telescoping shaft, which is configured to retract and expand to create an elongated brush assembly. An apparatus, system, and method for conveying an assembly along a track. A rail(401 ) includes a first planar side, a second planar side, and a third planar side. The first, second, and third planar sides are arranged to form at least two acute angles ranging between 50 degrees and 80 degrees. A carriage assembly(300) includes a drive wheel(301 ) and at least two rollers(302). The drive wheel is configured to contact the second planar side and is configured to translate the assembly along the rail. The two rollers are configured to contact the two other sides to maintain the carriage in contact with the rail.

A method and system for estimating traffic signals. The method and system can include constructing trajectories of probe vehicles from GPS data emitted by the probe vehicles, estimating traffic signal cycles, combining the estimates, and computing the traffic signal timing by maximizing a scoring function based on the estimates. Estimating traffic signal cycles can be based on transition times of the probe vehicles starting after a traffic signal turns green.

A multi-data reservoir history matching and uncertainty quantification framework is provided. The framework can utilize multiple data sets such as production, seismic, electromagnetic, gravimetric and surface deformation data for improving the history matching process. The framework can consist of a geological model that is interfaced with a reservoir simulator. The reservoir simulator can interface with seismic, electromagnetic, gravimetric and surface deformation modules to predict the corresponding observations. The observations can then be incorporated into a recursive filter that subsequently updates the model state and parameters distributions, providing a general framework to quantify and eventually reduce with the data, uncertainty in the estimated reservoir state and parameters.
