  • Publication number: 20190283519
    Abstract: A method for controlling vehicle motion is described. The method includes accessing a set of control signals including a measured vehicle speed value associated with a movement of a vehicle. A control signal associated with user-induced input is also accessed. The method compares the measured vehicle speed value with a predetermined vehicle speed threshold value to achieve a speed value threshold approach status, and then compares the set of values to achieve a user-induced input threshold value approach status. The method monitors a state of a valve within the vehicle suspension damper, and determines a control mode for the vehicle suspension damper. The method also regulates damping forces within the vehicle suspension damper.

  • Patent number: 10360522
    Abstract: Techniques for generating a forecast associated with an item may be described. For example, the forecast may be generated based on simulations of supply and demand variables associated with the item over a planning horizon. The forecast may include at least one of: a labor forecast or a capacity forecast associated with inventorying units of the item in an inventory over the planning horizon. Further, real-time data associated with realizations of the supply and demand variables during the planning horizon may be monitored. At least a portion of the real-time data may be available from a management system. The management system may be configured to manage orders for the units of the item from the inventory. The forecast may be updated during the planning horizon based on the real-time data. The update may include changing the at least one of: the labor forecast or the capacity forecast.

  • Publication number: 20180134766
    Abstract: Provided is a fusion protein, e.g., a cytokine receptor fusion protein, e.g., a TGF? trap, with a novel linker sequence to permit the fusion protein to functionally optimally, e.g., to permit a cytokine receptor portion of a cytokine receptor fusion protein to bind optimally to its target cytokine. The fusion proteins, or expression vectors encoding for the fusion proteins, e.g., oncolytic adenoviral expression vectors, can be used to treat cell proliferative diseases and disorders, including certain forms of cancer and inflammatory disorders.

  • Publication number: 20150161725
    Abstract: According to some embodiments, a system includes an interface and one or more processors. The interface receives a request from a user to move a first account associated with a first enterprise to a second enterprise where the user has at least one account. The processor(s) determine first configuration settings associated with the first account. The processor(s) receive a modification request to modify or delete one or more of the first configuration settings and select second configuration settings associated with the second account based on the first configuration settings and the modification request. The processor(s) create a second account at the second enterprise and apply the second configuration settings to the second account.

  • Publication number: 20150111644
    Abstract: A ranking system is provided. The ranking system may provide a qualitative method of ranking quantitative evaluation data of players from a plurality of player pools, wherein the plurality of player pools are a subset of the entire group of potential players. The ranking system may provide a method of transforming a plurality of two types—objective and subjective—of evaluation data for a plurality of players into a ranking for each player by standardizing both types on the same on a common scale and applying weights to prioritize specific evaluation and, separately, applying weights to indicate the relative importance between the two types—objective and subjective—of evaluation data, so as to meet the needs of a predetermined team.
