  • Publication number: 20190242949
    Abstract: A battery system monitor includes cell measurement circuits (CMCs) that each measure a voltage at or current through a pair of terminals of a respective associated battery module from among a plurality of plurality of battery modules in a battery system. Wireless communication transceivers (WCTs), each associated with a different CMC, transmit voltage or current measurement information of the associated CMC across a wireless communication link. A controller receives the voltage or current measurement information from the wireless communication transceivers for monitoring the state of operation of the battery system. Battery system monitoring is improved through synchronization of clocks in different CMCs or WCTs to enable synchronous sampling of multiple battery modules, through systems for determining relative positions of battery modules in a series coupling of battery modules between terminals of the battery system, and through improvements to the reliability of wireless communication.

  • Patent number: 9288444
    Abstract: A system for delivering a video signal associated with an access request, wherein the system includes: a trigger module configured to detect a trigger event associated with the access request; a video module configured to access a video signal related to the trigger event; and a control module configured to control the video module to access the video signal based on the trigger event and for outputting the accessed video signal. A corresponding method for delivering a video signal associated with an access request, wherein the method includes: detecting a trigger event associated with the access request at a video device; accessing a video signal related to the trigger event; and displaying the video signal via the video device.
