  • Publication number: 20220301070
    Abstract: A system and method for automatically screening applicants for disability insurance in real-time, and if the results are favorable, automatically communicating acceptances and issuing policies via wireless communication. An applicant's BMI is calculated, and the applicant is rejected if the BMI is too high or low. The applicant's prescription drug history is obtained, and the applicant is rejected if the history shows use of a drug associated with a serious medical condition. The acceptance or rejection and a premium for the insurance product may be set based upon the real-time screening results and communicated to the applicant. Additionally, an occupation class assigned to the applicant may be confirmed, a motor vehicle report for the applicant may be obtained, and an insurance information report for the applicant may be obtained. If the applicant is rejected, they may be allowed to apply for the insurance product using an alternate non-real-time process.

  • Publication number: 20220263705
    Abstract: Systems and methods for evaluating a customer premise equipment (CPE) device. A network element management system may send an alteration request to a configurable coaxial tap. The alteration request may cause the configurable coaxial tap to alter the characteristics of the configurable coaxial tap and/or to manipulate the radio frequency (RF) characteristics of a CPE device coupled to the configurable coaxial tap. The network element management system may receiving impaired operation reports from a cable modem termination system (CMTS), and send an un-alteration request to the configurable coaxial tap. The un-alteration request may cause the configurable coaxial tap to undo the alterations to the characteristics of the configurable coaxial tap or to undo the manipulated RF characteristics of the CPE. The network element management system may receive and use information the CMTS to determine modem-tap-port correlations and the physical location of the CPE.

  • Patent number: 11416008
    Abstract: A computing system for landing and storing vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft can be configured to receive aircraft data, passenger data, or environment data associated with a VTOL aircraft and determine a landing pad location within a landing facility based on the aircraft data, passenger data, and/or environment data. The landing facility can include a lower level and an upper level. The lower level can include a lower landing area and a lower storage area. The upper level can include an upper landing area. At least a portion of the upper level can be arranged over the lower storage area. The landing pad location can include a location within the lower landing area or the upper landing area of the landing facility. The computing system can communicate the landing pad location to an operator or a navigation system of the VTOL aircraft.

  • Publication number: 20220246044
    Abstract: A request for transport services that identifies a rider, an origin, and a destination is received from a client device. Eligibility of the request to be serviced by a vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft is determined based on the origin and the destination. The client device is sent an itinerary for servicing the transport request including a leg serviced by the VTOL aircraft. Confirmation is received that the rider has boarded the VTOL aircraft and determination made as to whether the VTOL aircraft should wait for additional riders. Instruction are sent to the VTOL aircraft to take-off if one or more conditions are met.

  • Patent number: 11386308
    Abstract: An artefact is received and parsed into a plurality of observations. A first subset of the observations are inputted into a machine learning model trained using historical data to classify the artefact. In addition, a second subset of the observations are inputted into a xenospace centroid configured to classify the artefact. Thereafter, the artefact is classified based on a combination of an output of the machine learning model and an output of xenospace centroid. Related apparatus, systems, techniques and articles are also described.

  • Publication number: 20220155183
    Abstract: A vehicle sensor system reduces power obtained from a first power-generating component of a power-generating system based on a temperature variation between the first power-generating component and one or more additional power-generating components of the power-generating system at different operating speeds of the power-generating system. The power is reduced to prevent or reduce damage to the first power-generating component. The power-generating components can be axles of a vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20220146669
    Abstract: For ultrasound imaging using a matrix transducer, interconnects or switches are provided to allow sub-arrays forming a 1D array, such as with sub-arrays one element wide with the maximum number of elements in elevation. Where groups are used to limit the switches and available system channels per group, an extra switch may connect between elements of different groups through a group output to extend a sub-array across groups. To further limit the number of switches, the group may be sub-divided where different combinations of sub-groups are connectable with different combinations of the system channels for the group.

  • Patent number: 11303270
    Abstract: A method and an ultrasound system are provided for generating transmission signals of an ultrasound probe used in a contrast-enhanced ultrasound image mode. The ultrasound system generates a pair of pulse control signals n and n+1 and a damping compensation pulse control signal, generates a pair of pulses n and n+1 having polarities opposite to each other and a damping compensation pulse having a polarity opposite to that of the n+1-th pulse based on the pair of pulse control signals and the damping compensation pulse control signal, transmits transmission signals including the pair of pulses and the damping compensation pulse, generates an ultrasound signal based on the transmission signals, transmits the ultrasound signal to a target object, and acquires echo signals for forming a contrast-enhanced ultrasound image of the target object. The damping compensation pulse is successively generated after generating the pair of pulses.

  • Publication number: 20220036746
    Abstract: A vertiport system dynamically updates configuration of a vertiport based on predicted usage of the vertiport during a given time frame. The vertiport system predicts vertiport usage using flight data and estimated passenger demands and determines a desired number of parking pads and a desired number of final approach and takeoff (FATO) pads for the vertiport during the time frame. Based on the desired number of parking pads and the desired number of FATO pads for the vertiport, the vertiport system determines an updated configuration of the vertiport. According to the updated configuration, the vertiport system updates the configuration of the vertiport for at least a portion of the time frame.

  • Patent number: 11237081
    Abstract: A vehicle sensor system includes a fluid sensor configured to be disposed onboard a vehicle system and at least partially extend into a gearbox of a traction motor of the vehicle system. The fluid sensor is configured to output data representative of an amount of a lubricating fluid in the gearbox. The system also includes a positioning system configured to output data representative of movement or an absence of movement of the vehicle system, and one or more processors configured to determine the amount of the lubricating fluid in the gearbox based on the data that is output by the fluid sensor responsive to the data output by the positioning system indicating that the vehicle system has not moved or has moved by less than a designated distance for at least a designated, non-instantaneous period of time.

  • Patent number: 11026662
    Abstract: For phase inversion-based ultrasound imaging with a transmit and receive circuit at an array, a unipolar transmitter is used to reduce the number of high voltage wires. Rather than adding a T/R switch or increasing connections by connecting the receive amplifier to a different electrode than the transmitter, two different receive paths from the element to the receive amplifier are provided. One path is used where the unipolar transmitter ends in one state (e.g., 0V), and the other path is used where the unipolar transmitter ends in another state (e.g., Vtx).
