  • Patent number: 11164257
    Abstract: An insurance data gathering process contingent upon dynamically captured image and informatics sensor data. The captured image data may be used to facilitate rapid insurance-related decisions. In regards to a decision to be rendered for a property insurance policy, at least one image is retrieved associated with the property. One or more accounts associated with the insured are identified and one or more risks characteristics are identified regarding the insured. An aggregated dataset is provided from the at least one image, one or more accounts and risk characteristics associated with the insured. Predictive analysis is performed on the aggregated dataset to render a risk profile for the insured regarding an insurance policy for the property. A decision is rendered regarding the insured and the insurance policy based at least in-part upon the rendered risk profile.

  • Patent number: 11038867
    Abstract: A flexible and extensible architecture allows for secure searching across an enterprise. Such an architecture can provide a simple Internet-like search experience to users searching secure content inside (and outside) the enterprise. The architecture allows for the crawling and searching of a variety of sources across an enterprise, regardless of whether any of these sources conform to a conventional user role model. The architecture further allows for security attributes to be received at query time, for example, in order to provide real-time secure access to enterprise resources. The user query also can be transformed to provide for dynamic querying that provides for a more current result list than can be obtained for static queries.

  • Patent number: 10845343
    Abstract: A process is disclosed in which a computing device reads electronic data from an ultrasonic scanning probe and processes that data in real time to determine if any potential weld defects are encountered as the probe head moves along scanning the weld. The method receives weld scan data in the form of scanning slices and determines if any of the encountered indications match a predetermined criterion. The process utilizes a moving scan data window of scan slices and processes each window for indications of weld defects. The processing of the data window is optimized using a rule-based, indications counting set so that any found defect indications triggers the issuance of a signal to an operator, in various forms, such as activating a marking module, issuing an alert signal, or printing a report.

  • Patent number: 10837916
    Abstract: A handheld device for making 3D topography measurements of surface discontinuities in high performance structures, such as aerostructures (e.g., aluminum fuselages). Lights illuminate the discontinuity from multiple angles, and a camera captures images of the discontinuity. A thickness sensor generates thickness data regarding a thickness of the base material and the top protective coating. A position sensor generates position data regarding a location of the discontinuity on the structure. A processor generates geometry data regarding a geometry of the discontinuity based on the images, performs an analysis of the geometry, thickness, and position data, and communicates a result of the analysis on a display. A conforming membrane and/or a gel and an opaque lubricant may be applied over and conform to the discontinuity in order to make more uniform a reflectivity difference and a color difference between the discontinuity and an adjacent portion of the structure.

  • Patent number: 10740388
    Abstract: A computing device initiates a linked capture session to enable automatic image sharing by multiple users and devices. The linked capture session is a group of devices that automatically share captured images during the linked capture session. The linked capture session may be initiated based on a location, a group of people, and/or a time duration. The images captured by devices that are connected in the linked capture session are automatically communicated to a remote storage system that allows all users to access the images through devices connected to the linked capture session.

  • Patent number: 10704676
    Abstract: A transmission assembly including a clutch system, an accumulator, and a controller is provided. The clutch system may include a flow source. The accumulator may be selectively in communication with the flow source via a solenoid valve. The controller may be programmed to, responsive to detection of a vehicle stop and the accumulator charged below a predetermined threshold, output a command to open the solenoid valve to rapidly charge the accumulator from the flow source. The predetermined threshold may be an accumulator pressure between 700 kPa and 900 kPa. The controller may be further programmed to, responsive to detection of the accumulator being charged to or above the predetermined threshold, output a shut down command to an engine in communication with the transmission assembly and to output a close command to the solenoid valve. The flow source may be a pump out circuit or a line pressure circuit.

  • Patent number: 10641745
    Abstract: A method is disclosed to extract meta-data held in a weld scan data file and from such data determine whether the testing data is acceptable for review. A series of configuration parameters held in the scan data file are analyzed for inconsistencies and a select set of parameters are reviewed for codes and industry accepted standards compliance with recorded scan data. Additional qualitative tests may be implemented on the scan test file and unacceptable results may also provide guidance to the weld inspector as to whether continued review of the scan data file is worthwhile. Such consistency testing avoids wasteful activities reviewing a flawed weld scan data file and provides signals to operators to avoid the processing of such a file by weld scan analysis software when such processing will not result in successful assistance to a weld inspector.

  • Patent number: 10636064
    Abstract: A method of monetization of the processing of a collection of ultrasonic data files is disclosed. The process accesses each scan data file and reads meta-data held by that scan data file. Responsive to the extant meta-data, a pricing model is applied, and a processing cost calculated for the processing of each data file. That pricing information is then associated with a customer account and invoiced at a time of choosing of the processing company. Various pricing models may be applied responsive to the characteristics of the data file processed, and responsive to the timeliness and priority of such processing.
