  • Patent number: 10922642
    Abstract: A method for linking an event to video documenting the event is disclosed. Such a method includes detecting an event, wherein the event is one of (1) completion of a delivery; and (2) access to an enclosure. The method determines a first timing associated with the event and identifies video documenting the event by correlating the first timing with a second timing associated with the video. The method automatically provides, to a user, information to enable the user to view the video. A corresponding system and computer program product are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10914789
    Abstract: A battery system monitor includes cell measurement circuits (CMCs) that each measure a voltage at or current through a pair of terminals of a respective associated battery module from among a plurality of plurality of battery modules in a battery system. Wireless communication transceivers (WCTs), each associated with a different CMC, transmit voltage or current measurement information of the associated CMC across a wireless communication link. A controller receives the voltage or current measurement information from the wireless communication transceivers for monitoring the state of operation of the battery system. Battery system monitoring is improved through synchronization of clocks in different CMCs or WCTs to enable synchronous sampling of multiple battery modules, through systems for determining relative positions of battery modules in a series coupling of battery modules between terminals of the battery system, and through improvements to the reliability of wireless communication.

  • Publication number: 20200293684
    Abstract: Client devices can send access request messages to resource management computers to request access to a resource. A data security hub can provide centralized routing between different client devices, resource management computers, and authentication data processing servers. The data security hub can reduce the risk of sensitive authentication information from leaking (e.g., due to a breach) by limiting the amount or types of authentication information distributed to the data processing servers. The data security hub can limited the authentication information being distributed based on its sensitivity, the trust level of the client device, and the security level of the requested resource. The data security hub can also evaluate the client devices and data processing servers to identify security breaches and can cancel or reroute access requests accordingly Thus, the data security hub can maintain resource security while better preserving the privacy of the client device's authentication information.

  • Patent number: 10686828
    Abstract: Computerized systems and methods for sharing identified cyber-threat information in a standardized and secure format. The sharing of cyber-threat information assists in preventing malicious actors from replicating successful cyber-attacks by informing potential targets of the methods employed by the malicious actors, and the defensive measures that those targets should to implement to prevent those methods from succeeding. By distributing cyber-threat information in a standardized format, the systems and methods enable participating entities to automatically analyze and implement defensive measures for cyber-threat information shared by any other participating entities. The systems and methods also permit an entity to control which threat information it shares and which other entities it shares it with in a secure manner in order to preserve that entity's security and reputation.
