  • Patent number: 11307800
    Abstract: A disk-based write filter can include a filter driver that is loaded below the file system driver to thereby provide write filter functionality at the disk level, and a supporting driver that is loaded above the file system driver. When an excluded file is opened, the supporting driver can obtain the file's disk sector information and provide it to the filter driver to cause the filter driver to pass through I/O requests that target sectors defined in the file's disk sector information. When the excluded file is closed, the supporting driver can again obtain the file's disk sector information and provide it to the filter driver to allow the filter driver to identify any additional sectors that may have been allocated to the file. The filter driver can copy any such sectors from an overlay to disk and commence passing through I/O requests that target these sectors.

  • Patent number: 11301224
    Abstract: A robotic process automation system employs centralized compilation to generate a platform independent executable version of a bot, which is encoded to perform user level operations. The system employs an extensible set of commands which can be user generated. The bots execute on devices that are separate and independent from a server processor that controls the system. The devices execute bots in an execution environment that is provided by the server processor. Change in a command in a bot requires recompilation of the bot which is then delivered upon request to a device. The execution environment does not require recompilation upon a change in a command.

  • Patent number: 11292457
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for generating trajectories for a vehicle user interface showing a driver's perspective view. Methods include generating an ego-vehicle predicted trajectory for an ego-vehicle; and generating at least one road agent predicted trajectory for a road agent that is external to the ego-vehicle. After the predicted trajectories are generated, the method continues by determining that at least one road agent predicted trajectory both (1) exists behind an object, indicating travel behind the object, and (2) overlaps with the object, when displayed on the user interface showing a driver's perspective view. The method includes modifying the at least one road agent predicted trajectory to remove the overlap. The method then proceeds with updating a display of the user interface to include any modified road agent predicted trajectory. Systems include a trajectory-prediction module to execute the methods.

  • Patent number: 11288107
    Abstract: Methods and systems may help to provide filtered notification content that provides useful information to the intended recipient, but does not provide the same information to an unauthorized viewer. To do so, when an application event occurs, filtered notification content may be generated. The filtered notification content may combine a non-obfuscated portion of the event content and an obfuscated portion of the event content, such that when viewed by an intended recipient, the filtered notification content provides implicit information that the device expects the particular user to understand based on the user's own experience and/or other factors.
