  • Publication number: 20180208452
    Abstract: A dual-fluid receptacle for a diesel vehicle includes an outer wall disposed on an outer surface of the vehicle. The outer wall defines a diesel receptacle for receiving diesel fuel, a diesel-exhaust receptacle adjacent the diesel receptacle for receiving a diesel-exhaust fluid, and a bridge portion disposed between the diesel and diesel-exhaust receptacles. The receptacles are configured to simultaneously receive the diesel fuel and diesel-exhaust fluid from a single fluid dispensing unit. This allows an operator to fill the vehicle with diesel fuel and diesel-exhaust fluid, simultaneously, from a single fluid dispensing unit. A projection extends from the outer wall proximate to at least one of the two receptacles. The projection is configured to cooperate with an engagement feature of the fluid dispensing unit to selectively enable dispensing of diesel.

  • Publication number: 20180181543
    Abstract: This disclosure shows how a time series of measurements of an evolving system can be processed to create an “inner” time series that is unaffected by any instantaneous invertible, possibly nonlinear transformation of the measurements. An inner time series contains information that does not depend on the nature of the sensors, which the observer chose to monitor the system. Instead, it encodes information that is intrinsic to the evolution of the observed system. Because of its sensor-independence, an inner time series may produce fewer false negatives when it is used to detect events in the presence of sensor drift. Furthermore, if the observed physical system is comprised of non-interacting subsystems, its inner time series is separable; i.e., it consists of a collection of time series, each one being the inner time series of an isolated subsystem.

  • Publication number: 20110288934
    Abstract: Techniques are described to mitigate ad stalking and other user concerns resulting from user-targeted advertising. A user may be informed of advertising information by a process in which an advertising server receives a request for an ad. The request may have been generated in response to a user request for a landing web page. An ad may be selected based on user information available to the advertising server, where the user information is associated with the user and describes behavior and/or attributes and/or preferences associated with the user. Text about how the ad was selected may be incorporated into the ad. Such text may describe the user information used to select the ad. The selection-disclosing text may be incorporated in the ad in a form that is displayable to the user by a browser. The ad may then be transmitted for display in the landing web page.

  • Patent number: 7664828
    Abstract: Implementations are described and claimed herein to detect an invalid policy that may reside in a cache at a client. An expired policy is removed from cache and a current policy is requested. Otherwise the cached policy may be used. The client indicates which policy it is using by generating a policy digest, including, in compressed form, one or more assertions. If the host determines the policy digest is invalid, the host issues an invalid digest fault. If the policy digest is valid, but the assertions included in the policy digest are invalid, the host issues an invalid policy fault. In either case, the client is notified that the cached policy is no longer valid and that a current policy should be requested.

  • Patent number: 7496649
    Abstract: A method includes retrieving an intermediate node policy characterizing communication properties supported by an intermediate node, the intermediate node being between a source node and a destination node in a communication path. The method includes forming a first policy-compliant message in accordance with the intermediate node policy, the first policy-compliant message including a request for a destination node policy characterizing communication properties supported by the destination node. A system includes a policy retriever comparing a source policy to one to an intermediate policy to determine whether the source policy is compatible with the intermediate policy. A message generator generates a policy request message by applying the intermediate policy to a request for a policy related to a destination node.

  • Publication number: 20080147763
    Abstract: Given a time series of possibly multicomponent input data, the method and apparatus includes a device that finds a time series of “source” components, which are possibly nonlinear combinations of the input data components and which can be partitioned into groups that are statistically independent of one another. These groups of source components are statistically independent in the sense that the phase space density function of the source time series is approximately equal to the product of density functions, each of which is a function of the components (and their time derivatives) in one of the groups. In a specific embodiment, an unknown mixture of data from multiple independent source systems (e.g., a transmitter of interest and noise producing system) is processed to extract information about at least one source system (e.g., the transmitter of interest).

  • Publication number: 20070150389
    Abstract: Displaying graphical indicators, instead of data, based on user-defined conditions. The user can specify conditions for displaying graphical indicators instead of actual data by specifying a test, values, and an image. The graphical indicators can be pre-assigned images that are dynamically applied based on the underlying text or numeric data values. Graphical indicators allow the user to visually represent data types or categories with graphics, based on the user's conditions. Different conditions can be specified for a given data field and each condition can be associated with a particular graphical indicator. Prioritized processing of data conditions allow for complex control of which indicator will be displayed to visually represent the data. When the underlying data in a field changes, the criteria can be reapplied and the field dynamically updated to the appropriate indicator.
