  • Publication number: 20190337451
    Abstract: Technical solutions are described herein for providing driver notification in a vehicle. An example system includes one or more sensors that measure one or more attributes of a remote object in a predetermined vicinity of the vehicle. The system further includes an output device that provides a notification to a driver. The system further includes a remote object monitoring system that generates a driver notification to be provided via the output device based on the attributes of the remote object. Generating the driver notification includes determining a recklessness score for the remote object based on the attributes of the remote object. Generating the driver notification further includes, in response to the recklessness score exceeding a predetermined threshold, generating the driver notification that comprises a directional information that provides a spatial awareness of a location of the remote object in relation to the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20060106650
    Abstract: A system for the adjudication of insurance claims, such as automobile repair claims, by an insurance provider is provided. A claim submitted by a policyholder is received is received by the insurance provider. The claim is assigned to an insurance adjuster. The insurance provider receives a determination of a dollar value of the claim from the adjuster, and uses this information to determine how much money to disburse to the policyholder. The insurance provider then issues an account funded with the dollar value of the claim to the policyholder, accessible by the policyholder through a card. As the card is used, the insurance provider collects purchase information, such as information relating to the date, place, and amount of each purchase made on the account. The insurance provider may then collate the purchase information in a database and analyze the data for mathematically significant trends and relationships.
