  • Publication number: 20220256323
    Abstract: A system is described for tracking vehicle position using a smart phone or similar device as an active transponder that communicates with roadside equipment. The system may uses existing RF transceivers on the smart-phone, such as Bluetooth® LE or WiFi to periodically transmit an identifying message. Road-based equipment detects and locates the smart phone. In a further aspect, the smart phone is alerted by roadside beacons and responds with identification information. Transaction processing may be performed either on the smart phone or by roadside or back office equipment. The system may be used for automated roadway tolling and monitoring and also for access control. A coded card may be scanned by the smart card to enter identification for access control.

  • Publication number: 20220237622
    Abstract: Described herein are methods and systems for enhancing security of transaction requests from POS terminals by utilizing ANI-DNIS information. The header of the transaction request can include automatic source information (“ASI”), which can be extracted from the header by the line handler. The ASI information can be provided to the front end interface, which can compare the ASI information with known customer information. The comparison can provide information indicating whether the transaction is legitimate or fraudulent. If fraudulent, the transaction request can be declined. The ASI information can further be stored in a security analysis database and further queried to identify larger threats including denial of service attacks.

  • Publication number: 20220235751
    Abstract: A fluid routing plug for use with a fluid end section. The fluid end section being one of a plurality of fluid end sections making up a fluid end side of a high pressure pump. The fluid routing plug is installed within a horizontal bore formed in a fluid end section and is configured to route fluid between an intake and discharge bore. The fluid routing plug comprises a plurality of first and second fluid passages. The first and second passages do not intersect and are offset from one another. The first fluid passages are configured to direct fluid delivered to the horizontal bore from intake bores towards a reciprocating plunger. The second fluid passages are configured to direct fluid pressurized by the plunger towards a discharge bore.

  • Patent number: 11398312
    Abstract: System and methods for preventing the coverage or fill of ineffective medications are provided. Genetic efficacy testing results are received at a pharmacy benefits manager (“PBM”) system from a laboratory information system. Medications reported as ineffective in the testing results are flagged as an allergy in an electronic patient record. Requests for coverage of medications are received at the PBM system from a dispensing pharmacy system and electronic notifications are issued to the dispensing pharmacy system where the medication is flagged as an allergy at the PBM system to prevent the flagged medication from being filled.

  • Publication number: 20220220816
    Abstract: An electric driven hydraulic fracking system is disclosed. A pump configuration includes the single VFD, the single shaft electric motor, and the single hydraulic pump mounted on the single pump trailer. A controller associated with the single VFD and is mounted on the single pump trailer. The controller monitors operation parameters associated with an operation of the electric driven hydraulic fracking system as each component of the electric driven hydraulic fracking system operates to determine whether the operation parameters deviate beyond a corresponding operation parameter threshold. Each of the operation parameters provides an indicator as to an operation status of a corresponding component of the electric driven hydraulic fracking system. The controller initiates corrected actions when each operation parameter deviates beyond the corresponding operation threshold.

  • Patent number: 11380424
    Abstract: System and methods for alerting a healthcare provider to prescribed treatments having reduced or no effectiveness due to genetic composition is provided. A database containing treatments known to have reduced or no efficacy in persons having particular genetic markers is queried to determine whether any treatments prescribed by, or likely to be prescribed by, a healthcare provider to the patient are known to have reduced or no efficacy in persons having the same genetic markers as the patient. An alert containing such information is displayed at a healthcare provider system.

  • Patent number: 11299965
    Abstract: Completion systems and methods to complete a well are disclosed. A method to complete a well includes installing a casing across a plurality of zones of a well. The casing includes an opening and a sleeve positioned inside the casing. The method also includes shifting the sleeve from a first position to a second position to uncover the opening to provide fluid communication from a zone of the plurality of zones to the casing. After shifting the sleeve from the first position to the second position, the method includes flowing a screen assembly having a filter inside the casing and toward the sleeve. The method further includes positioning the filter around the opening and sealing the screen assembly around the opening to confine fluid flow through the opening to flow through the filter.

  • Publication number: 20210306825
    Abstract: A system for tracking vehicle position using a smart phone in the vehicle as an active transponder, which is detected by roadside equipment is disclosed. In an embodiment, the system uses existing RF transceivers on the smart-phone, such as Bluetooth LE or WiFi to periodically transmit an identifying message. Road-based equipment detects and locates the smart phone. In a further embodiment, the smart phone is alerted by roadside beacons and only then responds with its identification information. Processing can be performed either on the smart phone or by roadside or central office equipment as is the case in prior art active or passive transponder-based tolling systems. Vehicle location detection can be enhanced through the use of directional antenna matrices such as a Butler matrix. The system can be used for automated roadway tolling and monitoring.
