  • Patent number: 10922746
    Abstract: In a subscription vehicle system that enables customers to select and swap between a fleet of available vehicles, the vehicles are evaluated to identify which vehicles would be the best fit in view of a customer request and other information pertaining to the customer. The customer request and information is examined to identify particular attributes that are being sought. Based on these attributes, the available vehicles are assigned a score that reflects the level of satisfaction that the vehicle is anticipated to provide for the customer. The vehicles with the highest scores can be considered as candidates for fulfilling the customer request.

  • Publication number: 20210012411
    Abstract: A system and method for dynamically obtaining and evaluating information to optimize the generation of vehicle suggestions for a customer. A profile based on an initial set of information received from a user is created. Metrics are generated based on the profile information. Upon receiving a vehicle request, the profile and the request are analyzed in view of available vehicles. A customer's response to the vehicle suggestion list, as well as events triggered by a perceived need for additional information result in the dynamic adjustment of the profile and thus, the generated metrics.

  • Patent number: 10872301
    Abstract: Optimizing the assignment of vehicles in a fleet across a pool of customers. Identifying a pool of customers to be included in an assignment event and identifying available vehicles. Cull the domain of potential assignment scenarios by filtering out undesired matches. Score the generated scenarios based on various desired factors and then rank the scenarios. Select one or more optimal scenarios and analyze for week spots. Bolster the week spots by interacting with one or more customers to identify alternate solutions. Select and implement the optimal scenario.

  • Patent number: 10472647
    Abstract: Episomally transfected primary mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) express a polypeptide consisting of an antigenic polypeptide (e.g., one or more polypeptides) relating to a pathogen (e.g., one or more virus, bacterium, or parasite). The antigenic polypeptide can have the amino acid sequence of a natural polypeptide from the pathogen or an amino acid sequence differing from the natural sequence by one or more conservative amino acid substitutions. Uses and method for treating or preventing infections with episomally transfected primary MSC also are described.

  • Publication number: 20190217993
    Abstract: A yogurt-based food product is packaged in a container, including a bottom wall and a sidewall, by depositing a mix-in in a center of the bottom wall and then driving the mix-in from the center of the bottom wall to the sidewall with a blast of gas. Afterwards, a dairy or plant-based product is deposited in the container. The mix-in is in contact with the bottom wall and the sidewall, and a height of the mix-in is greater at the sidewall than at a center point of the bottom wall.

  • Patent number: 4413335
    Abstract: This fault recovery system determines the integrity of a duplex digital PCM switching network. The two copies of the switching network operate in synchronization and comparison of the outputs of each copy of the switching network takes place in order to detect network faults. The fault recovery mechanism is chiefly provided by inserting PCM samples from maintenance registers into the PCM data stream, through the digital switching network and trapping said PCM sample for analysis by the program. Subsequently, the logical unit corresponding to each fault is determined and a count is recorded corresponding to each unit.
