  • Patent number: 10578070
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for starting a vehicle engine. In one example, an engine starter system for starting the vehicle engine may comprise a ring gear coupled to an engine crankshaft, and a pinion gear coupled to a starter motor, the pinion gear having rotatable rocker elements for engaging the ring gear. In this way, the pinion gear may be engaged with the ring gear to transmit torque from the starter motor to the engine crankshaft to quickly start the engine.

  • Patent number: 10390458
    Abstract: Liquid submersion cooling systems are described that use a cooling liquid, for example a dielectric cooling liquid, to submersion cool an array of electronic devices. In some embodiments described herein, rather than using pump pressure to return the cooling liquid back to a cooling liquid reservoir, gravity can be used to return the cooling liquid to a reservoir via a cooling liquid gravity return manifold, and a pump can only be used on the liquid supply side to deliver the cooling liquid to each electronic device.

  • Patent number: 10028340
    Abstract: A dual stage power converter capable of being installing in a one-gang box and powering an LED load is presented. The dual stage converter includes a power factor correction (PFC) stage operating in transition mode and a resonant converter stage operating at a fixed frequency with a fixed duty cycle and dead time. A dimmer input is included to select a desired luminosity of the LED load. A main controller adjusts the value of the voltage output from the PFC stage in order to maintain the voltage output from the resonant stage at the desired level.

  • Patent number: 10010160
    Abstract: The disclosed load-supporting garment is a safer and more effective way to carry equipment. For example, the system enables a more even distribution of gear and its accompanying weight around the body. An example load-supporting garment may include a plurality of woven grid panels, with two or more front panels and two or more rear panels, and a back boning panel attached to the two or more rear panels. Each of the plurality of woven grid panels may include a plurality of horizontal fabric bands that are perpendicular to a plurality of vertical fabric bands. The plurality of horizontal and vertical fabric bands may alternatingly overlap. This may define a woven grid.

  • Patent number: 9877214
    Abstract: To determine a cause of a customer experience event (e.g., dropped call or choppy video) passively collected measures from various network layers (e.g., internet, transport, application, etc.) are used to establish user activity across multiple service types (a.k.a., contexts). These contexts are monitored across parallel contexts, services, and/or sockets. The multiple contexts are aggregated for analysis. The multiple contexts can be analyzed to determine a cause of the customer experience event.

  • Patent number: 9749382
    Abstract: A system includes a policy repository configured to store a plurality of plurality of media-centric policies. A media policy decision point receives media session data corresponding to one of the plurality of media sessions; determines a plurality of media-specific and non-media specific attributes, based on the media session data; and evaluates a plurality of media-centric policies to determine a proper subset of the plurality of media-centric policies that apply to the one of the plurality of media sessions. A media policy enforcement point enforces the proper subset of the plurality of media-centric policies to control the one of the plurality of media sessions.

  • Patent number: 9621607
    Abstract: A system includes a policy repository configured to store a plurality of media-centric policies. A media policy decision point is configured to execute operational instructions in accordance with a media centric policy language to select at least one of the plurality of policies corresponding to one of the plurality of media sessions based on, for example, feedback extracted monitoring the plurality of media sessions. The media-centric policy language, in various embodiments, expresses at least one of: operator preferences, operator goals, or operator constraints, facilitates management of individual ones of the plurality of media sessions and/or facilitates management of aggregate media traffic over the plurality of media sessions.

  • Patent number: 9118738
    Abstract: Systems and methods of controlling access to a multimedia stream in a media streaming session from a multimedia server to a requesting device via a network. The systems and methods facilitate receiving a primary request for the multimedia stream from the requesting device; determining whether to allow access to the primary request from the requesting device in accordance with at least one media session policy; and if access is permitted, then generating a secondary request corresponding to the primary request; providing the secondary request to the multimedia server; receiving a first multimedia stream from the multimedia server in response to the secondary request; determining whether to transmit the first multimedia stream or a second multimedia stream based on the at least one media session policy; and transmitting either the first multimedia stream or the second multimedia stream to the requesting device as indicated by the at least one media session policy.
