  • Patent number: 11402017
    Abstract: A vehicle includes an engine and a transmission having an input shaft operably coupled to the engine, an output shaft operably coupled to wheels of the vehicle, a primary pump, and a secondary pump. The primary and secondary pumps are each configured to supply pressurized fluid to a valve body of the transmission. A controller is programmed to, in response to a loss of pressure of the primary pump and a speed of the output shaft exceeding a first threshold, shift the transmission to a neutral state, energize the secondary pump once the transmission is in the neutral state, and command the engine to idle speed.

  • Publication number: 20210140826
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed and include a light-emitting diode (LED) array with LEDs associated with respective paint color chip locations of a display assembly. A processor receives a first signal indicating first paint color chip locations and determines whether a second signal is received from a second device within a threshold time, the second signal indicating second paint color chip locations. The processor assigns a first lighting characteristic to the first device and a second lighting characteristic to the second device, identifies a first set of LEDs associated with the first paint color chip locations and a second set of LEDs associated with the second paint color chip locations, and transmits an activation signal to the LED control circuit to activate the first set of LEDs based on the first lighting characteristic and the second set of LEDs based on the second lighting characteristic.

    Abstract: A system and method for calibrating a barcode scanning tunnel comprises providing a scanning tunnel having a moveable surface, a camera, and a dimensioning device. Orientations of the dimensioning device and camera are estimated. Instances of a calibration object on the moveable surface are acquired by the dimensioning device and the camera, and a relationship is defined between the two devices. A calibration object is moved along the moveable surface through the devices' fields of view, controlling the camera's focal distance according to the relationship, so that the dimensioning device and the camera acquire instances of the calibration object, and the relationship is revised.

  • Publication number: 20150329790
    Abstract: Systems and methods for hydroprocessing heavy oil feedstocks are disclosed. The process employs a plurality of contacting zones operating under hydrocracking conditions and at least one separation zone to convert at least a portion of the heavy oil feedstock to lower boiling hydrocarbons, forming upgraded products. The first contacting zone consists of one or more ebullated bed reactors. Most of the metals in the heavy oil feed are converted and adsorbed on the ebullated bed catalyst and can be removed during catalyst replacement. The second contacting zone consists of one or more slurry phase reactors. The slurry phase reactor can be operated at higher temperature to achieve higher conversion.
