  • Patent number: 10570840
    Abstract: Methods and systems for operating an engine to provide small amounts of energy to heat an aftertreatment device are described. In one example, fewer than the actual total number of engine cylinders are supplied with late post fuel injections (LPI) to heat an aftertreatment device without heating the aftertreatment device more than is desired. The engines fuel injectors may be operated at minimum fuel pulse widths to reduce fuel consumption.

  • Publication number: 20190366084
    Abstract: The present specification discloses devices and methodologies for the treatment of GERD. Individuals with GERD may be treated by implanting a stimulation device within the patient's lower esophageal sphincter and applying electrical stimulation to the patient's lower esophageal sphincter, in accordance with certain predefined protocols. The presently disclosed devices have a simplified design because they do not require sensing systems capable of sensing when a person is engaged in a wet swallow, have improved energy storage requirements, enable improved LES function while concurrently delivering additional health benefits, and enable improved LES function post stimulation termination.

  • Patent number: 10426955
    Abstract: The present specification discloses devices and methodologies for the treatment of transient lower esophageal sphincter relaxations (tLESRs). Individuals with tLESRs may be treated by implanting a stimulation device within the patient's lower esophageal sphincter and applying electrical stimulation to the patient's lower esophageal sphincter, in accordance with certain predefined protocols. The presently disclosed devices have a simplified design because they do not require sensing systems capable of sensing when a person is engaged in a wet swallow and have improved energy storage requirements.

  • Patent number: 9441524
    Abstract: Various systems and methods are described for an engine system with an exhaust gas treatment system including a particulate filter. In one example method, accumulated hydrocarbons are removed from the exhaust gas treatment system by increasing an exhaust gas temperature to a first temperature responsive to a particulate filter regeneration request during extended cold idle operation. After a predetermined duration, the exhaust gas temperature is increased to a second, higher temperature to regenerate the particulate filter.

  • Publication number: 20130076007
    Abstract: A pick-up truck comprises a chassis, a rear axle attached to the chassis, a passenger cabin, a cargo bed, a trailer hitching structure, and a first image capturing device. The passenger cabin is attached to the chassis forward of the rear axle. The cargo bed is attached to the chassis over the rear axle. The trailer hitching structure is attached to the chassis at a position rearward of the vehicle occupant structure and has a trailer engaging portion accessible within the cargo bed. The first image capturing device is attached to the passenger cabin. The first image capturing device is mounted in a manner allowing the first image capturing device to capture an image of the trailer engaging portion of the trailer hitching structure.

  • Publication number: 20120023910
    Abstract: Systems and methods for controlling regeneration of a diesel particulate filter in a vehicle engine exhaust include detecting a distance of an object from the exhaust and controlling a regeneration event if the distance is less than a threshold value. The system and method may include a particulate filter disposed in the exhaust of the vehicle and a proximity sensor disposed adjacent an exhaust opening and positioned to detect presence of an object near the opening. A controller in communication with the proximity sensor is adapted for controlling regeneration of the particulate filter in response to the proximity sensor detecting the object near the opening.
