  • Publication number: 20190176842
    Abstract: Various examples are directed to systems and methods for controlling a vehicle. Power may be provided to a cut-off valve in fluid communication between an automated control (AC) valve and a shuttle valve. The cut-off valve may be configured to open in response to the power, causing fluid communication between the AC valve and the shuttle valve. A vehicle autonomy system may modulate the AC valve to control a level of pressurized air provided from a pressurized air reservoir to a foundation brake via the AC valve and the shuttle valve. In response to an automated disengage signal, the cut-off valve may close to prevent pressurized air from reaching the shuttle valve via the AC valve and permit pressurized air to reach the shuttle valve via a pedal valve.

  • Patent number: 9708783
    Abstract: The plow lock is a device that is adapted for use with a plow or a snowplow in order to immobilize the plow or snowplow from use. The plow lock includes a first plate affixed to a second plate. The second plate forms a right angle with the first plate. The first plate includes a first lock hole thereon. The second plate is further defined with an outer surface. The outer surface of the second plate is affixed to a wedge member. The wedge member extends outwardly from the second plate.
