  • Patent number: 11105556
    Abstract: Portage storage containers including controlled evaporative cooling systems are described herein. In some embodiments, a portable container including an integral controlled evaporative cooling system includes: a storage region, an evaporative region adjacent to the storage region, a desiccant region adjacent to the outside of the container, and an insulation region positioned between the evaporative region and the desiccant region. A vapor conduit with an attached vapor control unit has a first end within the evaporative region and a second end within the desiccant region. In some embodiments, the controlled evaporative cooling systems are positioned in a radial configuration within the portable container.

  • Publication number: 20200272957
    Abstract: Computationally implemented methods and systems that are designed for receiving one or more first directives that direct a transportation vehicle unit to transport a first end user; receiving, while the transportation vehicle unit is en route to or is transporting the first end user, one or more second directives that direct the transportation vehicle unit to transport a second end user while transporting the first end user, the transportation vehicle unit having been determined to be able to accommodate transport of the second end user while transporting the first end user; and verifying that compliance with the one or more second directives will not conflict with one or more obligations to transport the first end user by the transportation vehicle unit. In addition to the foregoing, other aspects are described in the claims, drawings, and text.

  • Publication number: 20150066345
    Abstract: Described embodiments include a system, method, and vehicle. A system includes a collision management algorithm that includes preferences utilizable in determining a management of a possible collision between a collision-managed vehicle and an external object. A preference includes a vehicle collision management preference inputted by a human user of the collision-managed vehicle. The system includes a damage mitigation circuit configured to determine in at least substantially real time a collision mitigation strategy applicable to the collision-managed vehicle. The collision mitigation strategy is determined in response to (i) the collision management algorithm with the inputted vehicle collision management preference incorporated therein, and (ii) a predicted likelihood of a collision between the collision-managed vehicle and a particular external object.
