  • Publication number: 20180017221
    Abstract: An LED cove light system having a wall piece mounted to a back surface of a cove, the wall piece having a top edge which is at the same height as a top surface of a front wall of the cove. A light fixture component is removably attachable at an angle to the wall piece and carries one or more LEDs positioned to project light from the cove out into an adjacent space of a room.

  • Publication number: 20180013277
    Abstract: An adjustable mud ring assembly is provided that includes a base plate, a movable ring, and an indexing screw configured to move the movable ring with respect to the base plate between a first position and a second position. The base plate has a junction box connecting portion, a support connecting portion, and a stationary ring. The base plate can have an offset distance (D2) between the junction box connecting portion and the support connecting portion where the offset distance is sufficient to allow the movable ring to move into stationary ring to the first position without protruding, at a lowermost point, into a junction box connected to the junction box connecting portion.

  • Publication number: 20180011883
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods, apparatus, systems, and computer readable storage media for providing a reference to a content object in a user interface using an on-demand database service. A computing device can receive data regarding identification of a content object, where the content object is stored in a data repository external to the on-demand database service. The data regarding the content object can be stored in a persistent object in a database of the on-demand database service. A reference can be provided representing the persistent object to a display device operable to display the reference in a user interface when the display device accesses the on-demand database service. One or more graphical representations can be exposed regarding the content object for display in the user interface by the display device, where the exposed graphical representations depend at least in part on the data repository.

  • Patent number: 9865102
    Abstract: A system and method to preserve the integrity of data being extracted from an electronic data recorder (“EDR”) of an electronic control module (“ECM”) makes use of a forensic link adapter and, optionally, a sensor simulator (when ECM is out of the vehicle). The forensic link adapter has one or more first microprocessors and a first software means which prevent any message being sent by an external network from corrupting the previously recorded data measurements. The data measurements are then extracted, verified, and stored in a separate file. The sensor simulator has one or more second microprocessors, a second software means, and a bank of resistors that mimic sensors normally in communication with the ECM. The simulator “tricks” the ECM into thinking it is still in the vehicle by using the replicating vehicle system values the ECM normally sees when in the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20170365112
    Abstract: A system and method to preserve the integrity of data being extracted from an electronic data recorder (“EDR”) of an electronic control module (“ECM”) makes use of a forensic link adapter (20) and, optionally, a sensor simulator (10) (when the ECM is out of the vehicle). The forensic link adapter (20) has one or more first microprocessors (23) and a first software means which prevent any message being sent by an external network from corrupting the previously recorded data measurements. The data measurements are then extracted, verified, and stored in a separate file. The sensor simulator (10) has one or more second microprocessors (23), a second software means, and a bank of resistors (21) that mimic sensors normally in communication with the ECM. The simulator “tricks” the ECM into thinking it is still in the vehicle by using the replicating vehicle system values the ECM normally sees when in the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 9805051
    Abstract: Disclosed are some examples of systems, methods and storage media for synchronizing files between a user's computer and a remote system, and more specifically, to strategically storing updated versions of a file on the remote system. In some implementations, a system is capable of receiving a request including an updated version of a file. The system is additionally capable of identifying a version type of the updated version, identifying a current version of the file stored in one or more storage devices, and determining, based on the version type of the updated version, whether to store the updated version in the one or more storage devices as a new version or to replace the current version with the updated version. The system is further capable of storing the updated version in the one or more storage devices based on the determination.
