  • Patent number: 8065607
    Abstract: A system and method for automatically mapping of hypertext input fields to software components. The system includes a hypertext preprocessor, a name-space manager, a data handler, and a component manager. The hypertext preprocessor examines the hypertext input field names and uses the name-space manager and component manager to determine the mapping between input field names and software component properties. When the hypertext page is rendered, the name-space manager registers the mapping between each submitted input field and the corresponding component property. When the input data is submitted, the data handler uses the name-space manager to find the component property for each submitted input field and uses the component manager to convert the data to the correct type before calling the appropriate component method to set the property value.

  • Patent number: 7877192
    Abstract: A rotational speed parameter is detected in accordance with a rotational speed of the engine. A reference value of the rotational speed parameter is calculated. For each cylinder, an error between the reference value and the rotational speed parameter detected every predetermined crank angle is calculated as a relative speed parameter. For each cylinder, an integrated value is calculated by integrating the relative speed parameters over a predetermined period. For each cylinder, an average value per cylinder of the sum of the integrated values of all the cylinders is calculated. For each cylinder, an error between the integrated value of the cylinder and the average value is calculated. For each cylinder, the output of the engine is controlled in accordance with the error calculated for the cylinder such that variations in the output between the cylinders are suppressed.

  • Patent number: 7864868
    Abstract: An efficient method and system for detecting frame slip in an inband signalling block in pulse code modulation. The effect of frame slip on the inband signalling block is that the bits following the frame slip are transferred from the signalling block into an adjacent block. The octet slip is detected by searching an error bit in a signalling block by comparing it to a sample block. If an error bit is found, an error count for the adjacent block starting from the error bit is calculated. If the error count is more than one, a second error bit of the signalling block is searched (26) and bits of the adjacent block after second error bit are verified (27). If bits of the adjacent block after the second error bit are not correct, the octet slip cannot be assumed (29). Otherwise the octet slip can be assumed by analyzing error count and error bits.
