  • Publication number: 20210082209
    Abstract: Systems and methods discussed herein are directed to combining non-onboard diagnostic (OBD) codes with OBD codes to provide a list of codes that may be used to provide information to a user regarding a vehicle. For example, an auxiliary monitoring device may be included in a vehicle in the form of one or more sensors, e.g., cameras, image sensors, movement sensors, audio sensors, variable reluctance (VR) sensors, infrared (IR) sensors, odor sensors, etc., that may collect vehicle information that is not available through the vehicle's OBD port. The auxiliary monitoring device may obtain the information and convert the information into a corresponding non-OBD code. The auxiliary monitoring device thus complements an OBD monitoring device included in the vehicle that is coupled to the vehicle's OBD port to obtain OBD codes therefrom.

  • Publication number: 20100199306
    Abstract: The system provides a method and apparatus for implementing an electronic menu navigation system to present a range of categories and content items within each category to the user, and to allow the user to browse the categories with a cascading movement. Within each category the user can navigate left and right to view the items contained in that category. The new navigation is implemented as a cascading browser or cascading menu. The menu is presented as a plurality of tiers with each tier having a plurality of seats. The effect is three dimensional and similar to viewing audience seating from a stage.

  • Patent number: 7374937
    Abstract: The invention includes in vitro methods of inducing and enhancing proliferation of human marrow stromal cells for use in, for example, gene therapy and transplantation methods. The invention also includes a method of assessing the expandability (i.e., proliferative capacity) of human marrow stromal cells. In addition, the invention includes a conditioned medium for enhancing proliferation of human marrow stromal cells.

  • Publication number: 20060223106
    Abstract: Marrow stromal cells (MSCs) are adult stem cells from bone marrow that can differentiate into multiple non-hematopoietic cell lineages. Colonies of human MSCs were shown to contain both small, rapidly self-renewing stem cells (RS cells) and large, more mature cells (mMSCs). Samples enriched for RS cells had a greater potential for multipotential differentiation than samples enriched for mMSCs. Also, RS cells have a series of surface epitopes and expressed proteins that can be used to differentiate RS cells from mMSCs. The results suggest that it will be important to distinguish the two major sub-populations of MSCs in defining their biology and their potentials for cell and gene therapy.

  • Publication number: 20060053470
    Abstract: Methods and systems for presenting enhanced previously recorded broadcasted or streamed content are provided. Example embodiments provide an Enhanced Content Display System “ECDS,” which supports the management and presentation of prerecorded program content in a non-linear fashion. In one embodiment, the ECDS includes an Intelligent Media Data Server that generates enhanced meta-data that are associated with portions of the delivered content. In several example applications, portions of prerecorded broadcasted or streamed content are augmented with auxiliary content and related using enhanced meta-data. Using the generated enhanced meta-data and auxiliary recorded content, applications, such as a Personals Browser or a TV show browser, present prerecorded content augmented with related content segments that enrich the viewer experience.

  • Publication number: 20060031879
    Abstract: Methods and systems for presenting enhanced previously recorded broadcasted or streamed content are provided. Example embodiments provide an Enhanced Content Display System “ECDS,” which supports the management and presentation of previously recorded program content in a non-linear fashion and allows subscribers, using a variety of techniques, to specify which portions of programs or other content is of interest. In one embodiment, an ECDS-enabled News Browser application includes an Intelligent Media Data Server (“IMDS”) that generates enhanced meta-data that are associated with portions of the broadcasted or streamed news-related content. Using the generated enhanced meta-data, the News Browser helps subscribers organize, locate, and filter news-related content based upon user-defined keywords. This abstract is provided to comply with rules requiring an abstract, and it is submitted with the intention that it will not be used to interpret or limit the scope or meaning of the claims.
