  • Patent number: 10661307
    Abstract: A method of applying a coating material to a vehicle that includes defining a plurality of application zones on the vehicle. The application zones include a low visibility zone, a medium visibility zone, and a high visibility zone. The method further includes applying the coating material to the application zones in a predetermined sequence such that a first portion of the coating material is applied to the low visibility zone, then a second portion is applied to the medium visibility zone, and then a third portion is applied to the high visibility zone. A first overlap region is defined between the low visibility zone and the high visibility zone and a second overlap region is defined between the medium visibility zone and the high visibility zone. The third portion of the coating material is applied before the coating material previously applied in the first and second overlap regions has set for a predefined duration.

  • Patent number: 10630624
    Abstract: A method, system and/or computer program product predicts viewing activity of a new posting to an activity stream. A first computer transmits a new posting to an activity stream in a second computer, where the new posting is available to a potential viewer set. Based on identified viewer information about one or more members of the potential viewer set, a prediction is made of viewing activity of the new posting by the potential viewer set. This predicted viewing activity is based on identified viewer information about members of the potential viewer set, and describes a predicted likelihood of the potential viewer set viewing the new posting. The derived predicted viewing activity of the new posting by the potential viewer set is then presented at the first computer.
