A user, such as the driver of a vehicle, to retrieve information related to a point of interest (POI) near the vehicle by pointing at the POI or performing some other gesture to identify the POI. Gesture recognition is performed on the gesture to generate a target region that includes the POI that the user identified. After generating the target region, information about the POI can be retrieved by querying a server-based POI service with the target region or by searching in a micromap that is stored locally. The retrieved POI information can then be provided to the user via a display and/or speaker in the vehicle. This process beneficially allows a user to rapidly identify and retrieve information about a POI near the vehicle without having to navigate a user interface by manipulating a touchscreen or physical buttons.

A rake edge for a roof of a building includes a body having a lower portion and an upper portion. A fold is disposed on an inside end of the body. A downwardly extending side shield protrudes orthogonally from the lower portion. A shield edge protrudes outwardly from the side shield at an angle between 5 degrees and 90 degrees from a planar extent of the side shield. A shield edge underlap projects inwardly parallel with the shield edge. A trim portion extends over the upper portion. The trim portion is generally parallel with the upper portion and spaced a predetermined distance therefrom. A trim portion underlap is disposed between the upper portion and the trim portion.

In the present legacy electrical power generation and distribution system, the power quality delivered to end consumers is being degraded by a number of disruptive technologies and legislative impacts; especially with the rapidly increasing myriad of privately owned and operated domestic and commercial distributed energy generation (DEG) devices connected at any point across a low voltage (LV) distribution network. The present invention bypasses this increasing critical DEG problem by offering a solution comprising an energy processing unit (EPU) that is installed at the customers electrical power point of use (POU). And because of the controlled tightly voltage regulated output of the EPU, significant energy savings can be achieved through dynamic voltage control, utilizing the CVR effect, reduced reactive power demand, and reduced or eliminated peak demand billings.

Our electricity system is changing towards having a greater proportion of non-flexible generation from either intermittent renewable or nuclear sources and as behaviour in our society change around modern work practices and changing patterns of consumption behaviour. As this transition progresses there is an opportunity for the controlling influence in the energy system to move away from the small group of large powerful incumbent organisations towards the majority of agents within the system, the millions of system users. This project enables those customers to redefine themselves as participants within the energy system. The developments in this project allow building owners to use the dispatchable electrical loads in their buildings to become a dynamic and flexible energy sink, store and buffer asset, continuously pairing off against intermittent renewable generation and providing the system stability needed for the whole system to operate reliably. By unlocking these dispatchable load resources this project opens the path for a 100% zero carbon future electricity system.

Pilot error is the cause of 60-70% of aviation accidents. Current technologies require that pilots mentally convert complex instrument readings and 2D flat panel displays into 3D, 360 reality which increases their mental load and level of stress, a major negative factor in concentration and appropriate decision making. Aero Glass is a technology that contributes to solve this problem: using Head-Mounted Displays (Epson Moverio, Google Glass or similar) it is the first to bring Augmented Reality to pilots providing an unparalleled 3D, 360 experience in the cockpit, regardless of the visibility. EU Edge, a cutting edge software developer company has developed the concept combining its deep knowledge in augmented reality technologies and the personal background of its founder and CTO, Mr. kos Mary, an active pilot himself. In the past two years the idea became a proven business concept and the beta version of the product was also released in July 2014 based on Epson Moverio smart glasses. Currently 200 active testers are using Aero Glass in our Pioneer Beta Program giving valuable feedback from regular use. In the current SME Instrument Phase2 project we aim to enhance the currently limited features of the software framework demonstrate the technology on the recently released smart glasses platforms improve crucial technical preferences based on user feedbacks demonstrate the impact of the technology on the general aviation sector Our targeted primary market is general aviation - all those not considered to be operated by airlines, charter operators or the military. This segment includes 1 million pilots worldwide, more than 80% of them in our two regional target markets, the EU and the USA. Based on the Feasibiltiy Study we conducted in the 3rd quarter of 2014 EU Edge expects to sell more than 9.000 Aero Glass packages (bundled HMD \ software) achieving 10 million annual sales revenue in the fourth year of commercialization.
