  • Patent number: 9387768
    Abstract: A computer implemented method includes determining whether a time of day corresponds to a charging window, responsive to a determination that a vehicle is in a non-charging state. The method also includes retrieving a start time and charge requirement for an upcoming journey. The method further includes determining if sufficient time remains to charge a vehicle to the charge requirement, responsive to a determination that the time of day corresponds to the charging window. Also, the method includes alerting a user to the non-charging state, responsive to a determination that insufficient time remains to charge the vehicle to the charge requirement.

  • Patent number: 9380158
    Abstract: A computer implemented method includes detecting a vehicle state for which a user is to be notified. The method also includes sending a notification for a user regarding the vehicle state. The method further includes receiving a response that a do not disturb mode is enabled for the user. The method additionally includes queuing the notification for later delivery. The method also includes re-sending the notification for the user at a later point in time than when an original notification was sent.

  • Publication number: 20150100187
    Abstract: A method of controlling a motor in a hybrid electric vehicle mitigates the risk of an incorrectly wired or incorrectly connected wiring harness. Following the connection or re-connection of a wiring harness, the vehicle responds to a torque request by limiting the magnitude of the motor torque until the proper direction of torque is confirmed. A flag is then set to record that torque direction has been confirmed so that the vehicle can respond normally to future requests. Several events may indicate that a wiring harness has been re-connected.

  • Publication number: 20130096768
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes detecting a reportable change in vehicle state. The method also includes qualifying the reportable change for delivery based on evaluation of one or more situational variables associated with the reportable change. Further, the method includes delivering a notification relating to the reportable change to a wireless to be delivered to a device user despite an active do not disturb state of the wireless device, conditional on the qualification of the reportable change as deliverable.
