  • Publication number: 20170177655
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for dynamic data normalization and duplicate analysis include normalizing data (e.g., merchant identifier data) received from a source entity (e.g., transaction card provider), as well as identifying and resolving potential duplicate transaction data objects based on one or more transaction characteristics. For example, data normalization includes partitioning an identifier into one or more merchant identifier portions, sending a merchant identifier request to a merchant database, and receiving a set of merchant representation candidates in response to sending the merchant identifier request. Further, for instance, duplicate analysis includes determining whether a transaction data object from the first set of transaction data objects that falls within the overlapping portion is not present in the second set of transaction data objects, and identifying the transaction data object within the second set of transaction data objects and the one or more non-overlapping portions.

  • Patent number: 9381802
    Abstract: A wheel assembly for an electric vehicle includes a wheel rim that is concentrically disposed about a central axis. A propulsion-braking module is disposed within an interior region of the wheel rim. The propulsion-braking module rotatably supports the wheel rim for rotation about the central axis. The propulsion-braking module includes a liquid cooled electric motor having a rotor rotatable about the central axis, and a stator disposed radially inside the rotor relative to the central axis. A motor-wheel interface hub is fixedly attached to the wheel rim, and is directly attached to the rotor for rotation with the rotor. The motor-wheel interface hub directly transmits torque from the electric motor to the wheel rim at a 1:1 ratio. The propulsion-braking module includes a drum brake system having an electric motor that rotates a cam device, which actuates the brake shoes.

  • Publication number: 20160078561
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for adaptive expense processing and management include receiving and generating expense data objects, performing one or more expense processing and/or management procedures, adjusting/updating expense data from a first set to a second set for use in an autonomous expense procedure, and generating one or more additional or subsequent expense data objects based on the second set of expense data. For example, one or more account formation characteristics may be determined during an account formation procedure. Further, a merchant identity procedure may be performed. Additionally, the methods and apparatus may perform an expense category estimation procedure. The methods and apparatus may also determine a duplicate expense data object and perform an expense resolution procedure.

  • Publication number: 20150107401
    Abstract: A pedal module includes a support structure, and a lever rotatably mounted to the support structure for rotation about a rotation axis. The lever includes a lower pedal portion and an upper guide portion. A cam plate is attached to the support structure and defines a cam slot. A guide rod is coupled to the upper guide portion of the lever, and is also coupled to the cam plate to follow the cam slot. A biasing device includes a first end coupled to the support structure, and a second end coupled to the guide rod, and is operable to bias the guide rod toward the rotation axis. Resistance to movement of the lever in a first rotational direction about the rotation axis is dependent upon a spring constant of the biasing device, and a profile of the cam slot perpendicular to the rotation axis.
