  • Publication number: 20200356222
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to navigating a collection of media items. In accordance with one embodiment, in response to receiving an input, a device displays a first view of a collection of media items, including concurrently displaying a representation of a first time period and a representation of a second time period. In accordance with a determination that a current time is associated with a first recurring temporal event: the representation of the first time period includes a first representative media item and the representation of the second time period includes a second representative media item. In accordance with a determination that the current time is associated with a second recurring temporal event, the representation of the first time period includes a third representative media item and the representation of the second time period includes a fourth representative media item.

  • Publication number: 20200284601
    Abstract: An interactive telematics system that identifies one or more optimum routes for a user by identifying a plurality of potential routes from a departure location to a destination, calculating attributes of each of the potential routes, comparing the attributes of each of the potential routes to user preferences in a user profile associated with the user, identifying one or more optimized routes for the user by selecting one or more of the potential routes based on the comparison of the attributes of each of the potential routes to the user preferences associated with the user, and outputting the one or more optimized routes to a communications network for transmittal to a remote device associated with the user.

  • Patent number: 10584978
    Abstract: A system and method for displaying nowcasts along a route on a map. The system receives a map request including a departure location and a destination location from a user, and obtains map data including a route between the destination location and the departure location. A nowcaster is used for outputting nowcasts for a number of key points along the route. The system modifies the map data to include a visual indicator for each nowcast for each key point such that when the modified map data is executed on a display the nowcasts are displayed along the route between the departure location and the destination location.

  • Patent number: 10564319
    Abstract: Provided are methods, devices, and non-transitory computer readable storage mediums to generate a weather timeline such as a succession of weather information on a continuous time scale. For example, a timeline may include first weather information associated with a first time in a first territorial location, second weather information associated with a second time, and third weather information associated with a third time. At least one of the first, second and third weather information may comprise a forecasted weather value indicative of a probability of having a specific type of precipitation at a specific intensity. A weather timeline may follow a specific location (e.g. city, town, any region with a definite boundary), a specific weather event (e.g. a specific precipitation type, a specific temperature level, a specific wind intensity), and/or a specific user.

  • Publication number: 20200049855
    Abstract: Provided are methods, devices and non-transitory computer readable storage mediums to generate a more accurate weather forecast by utilizing actual observation of a weather event in a particular location and time. For example, the observation data may be received from a user device and contain information indicative of a weather event that the user observed. Alternatively, or additionally, the observation data may be automatically generated by one or more sensors placed in certain locations and transmitted to a central server automatically upon detecting an observation. The observation data may be used to predict a weather forecast of a location that corresponds to, or is otherwise related to the particular location in which the observed event occurred.

  • Patent number: 10509143
    Abstract: Provided are methods, devices, and non-transitory computer-readable storage mediums to generate an itinerary with a weather forecast. The itinerary may comprise a departure location, a destination location and a first time. Based on the itinerary, an intermediary location and an intermediary time associated with the intermediary location may be identified. A weather forecast associated with the identified intermediary location and the intermediary time may be predicted. A weather risk associated with the identified route may be assessed and based on the assessed risk, an alternative route may be additionally identified.

  • Patent number: 9447894
    Abstract: A valve assembly for a gas turbine engine comprising two flappers movable independently from one another between an open position and a closed position; and a fairing disposed between the two flappers. The fairing has a portion extending downstream of the two flappers. The portion is a downstream portion of a substantially streamlined body. The two flappers are movable relative to the fairing, and when in the open position, the two flappers abut the fairing and form an upstream portion of the substantially streamlined body. A method of flowing air through a valve assembly for a gas turbine engine is also presented.
