  • Publication number: 20190279188
    Abstract: A system, apparatus, and method for processing payment transactions that are conducted using a mobile device that includes a contactless element, such as an integrated circuit chip. An account holder is enabled to generate transaction related data and append that data to a transaction record or transaction identifier. The appended data and transaction record or identifier may be stored in the mobile payment device and/or provided to an Issuer. If provided to an Issuer, the transaction related data generated by the account holder may be used to supplement an account statement. The additional information generated by the account holder may be used to assist the account holder in determining if a transaction is valid by providing information that helps the account holder to recall the location or other aspect of the transaction.

  • Publication number: 20190276055
    Abstract: A system includes one or more processors, a communication device, and a positive train control (PTC) system. The one or more processors and communication device are onboard a lead vehicle of a vehicle system that includes the lead vehicle and a first remote vehicle. The PTC system is configured to restrict movement of the vehicle system based on a location of the vehicle system. The PTC system communicates a list of vehicle identifiers to the one or more processors. The communication device communicates a wireless linking message, which includes a vehicle identifier associated with the first remote vehicle, to the first remote vehicle. The communication device establishes a communication link between the lead vehicle and the first remote vehicle responsive to receipt of the wireless linking message at the first remote vehicle. The one or more processors remotely control movement of the first remote vehicle via the communication link.

  • Publication number: 20190276221
    Abstract: A multi-piece valve stem. The multi-piece valve stem allows for interchangeability of component parts, without requiring several stems to fit related valves, as are commonly used for aerosol dispensers. The multi-piece valve stem also provides for assembly of valve stems having a larger head, and thus more seal area, than can occur with a single piece valve stem, as is conventionally used. Smaller stem bore diameters are also possible with a multi-piece valve stem.

  • Patent number: 10410034
    Abstract: A system may include a fingerprint sensor system and a control system. The system may be configured to transmit an ultrasonic wave including a first frequency. The control system may be configured to obtain dermis layer image data from a target object based on reflected portions of the ultrasonic waves received by the fingerprint sensor system. The dermis layer image data may correspond to ultrasonic waves received from the target object within a time interval corresponding with the dermis layer. The reflected portions of the ultrasonic wave corresponding to the dermis layer image data may include ultrasonic waves at a second frequency that is an integer multiple of the first frequency. The control system may be configured to determine whether a magnitude of the ultrasonic waves at the second frequency exceeds a harmonic threshold and, if the magnitude exceeds the harmonic threshold, the control system may perform an authentication process.

  • Patent number: 10410085
    Abstract: Systems and methods for monitoring Web page content associated with processing a resource request are provided. A client computing device generates a sample image corresponding to a set of resources rendered in response to a resource request. A processing component, such as an image analysis component, then compares the sample image with an averaged reference image to identify a compared image. The averaged reference image is determined from averaging a pixel intensity value for each pixel in a first reference image with a pixel intensity value for each pixel in a second reference image. These first and second reference images both correspond to the same set of requested resources. The processing component then weights the compared image to produce a weighted compared image and determines whether a sum of the intensity values for each pixel in the weighted compared image exceeds a threshold. Aspects of systems and methods for generating an alert message if the threshold is exceeded are also provided.

  • Patent number: 10407486
    Abstract: This invention provides a method of detecting BDCA-2 protein in a biological sample. The sample is combined with an antibody or antigen binding fragment under conditions where the antibody or fragment will bind to BDCA-2 protein in the sample to form a complex, which is detected by formation of complex with the antibody. BDCA-2 protein may be displayed on the surface of dendritic cells. Binding of the antibody may result in down-regulation of type 1 interferon production, down-regulation of Th1 immune responses, induction of intracellular Ca++ mobilization, and/or polarization of an immune response towards Th2.

The pump is adapted to transfer power from a prime mover of the mobile work vehicle to the propel circuit. The hydraulic accumulator is adapted to exchange hydraulic fluid power via an accumulator isolation valve with the propel circuit when the hydraulic system is configured in the hybrid mode. The accessory circuit is adapted to receive hydraulic fluid power from the hydraulic accumulator, at least when the hydraulic system is configured in the hydrostatic mode and the accumulator isolation valve is closed.
