  • Patent number: 10655571
    Abstract: Various methods for controlling EGR rate are disclosed. In one embodiment, a method comprises routing at least a portion of exhaust from a first exhaust manifold to an intake manifold, and not to atmosphere, the first exhaust manifold exclusively coupled to a first cylinder group. The method further includes routing exhaust from at least one additional exhaust manifold coupled to a corresponding at least one additional cylinder group to atmosphere, and during a first engine operating condition where an engine fuel demand is below a threshold demand, not injecting fuel to each of a subset of cylinders in the first cylinder group while injecting fuel to a subset of all cylinders coupled to the at least one additional exhaust manifold, where a number of cylinders of the subset of cylinders in the first cylinder group decreases in response to an increase in a target EGR rate.

  • Patent number: 10633245
    Abstract: A method of forming a pocketed spring unit for an upholstered article comprises taking successive strings of pocketed springs and welding at least one sheet of material to at least a first end of the pocketed springs. Anvils 46 are moved from a non-operative position to an operative position, in which they are located between adjacent pockets at upper and lower ends of the springs. This embodiment makes use of the surplus material that is formed at the ends of the pockets in the form of flaps or “ears” of material. These flaps protrude upwardly initially, and then become folded flat as the spring unit advances between the rolls 48 of material. The external anvils are then made to apply heat and pressure to the material flaps trapped between them and the internal anvils at the sides of the pockets, between the springs to weld them to the material from the rolls 48.

  • Publication number: 20200106630
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure provide methods, systems, apparatuses, and computer program products that are configured to generate a predicted channel add object in an improved system of networked computing devices. The embodiments disclose an apparatus and system that provide channel invite suggestions. The channel invite suggestions comprise recommendations of users to invite to group-based communication channels. To provide the channel-invite suggestions, the group-based communication system generates a user-channel data structure that stores a plurality of values that capture relationships between users and group-based communication channels. The values may capture information regarding membership of a user in a group-based communication channel, starring of a group-based communication channel by a user, a level of activity of a user in a group-based communication channel, and a user's word usage in a group-based communication channel.

  • Patent number: 10570867
    Abstract: Various methods and systems are provided for a pressure relief valve of a fuel system. In one example, a valve includes a first chamber in fluid communication with a first fuel line, a second chamber in fluid communication with a second fuel line and in fluid communication with a fuel storage tank, a piston separating the first chamber from the second chamber, and a needle coupled to the piston and controlling a flow passage between the second fuel line and the second chamber, where the piston and needle are sized such that a force applied on the piston by the first chamber parallel to an axis of movement of the piston maintains the needle in a closed position when the first fuel line flows fuel at a first pressure and the second fuel line flows fuel at a second pressure, the second pressure greater than the first pressure.

  • Publication number: 20190359240
    Abstract: A system detects a parameter and generates a first trip plan to automatically control the vehicle according to a first trip plan. A controller is connected to a sensor and configured to receive the parameter. The controller is configured to generate a new trip plan or modify the first trip plan into a modified trip plan based on at least one of a cumulative damage or an end of life. A new trip plan or the modified trip plan is configured, during operation of the vehicle according to the new trip plan or the modified trip plan, for at least one of an adjustment in velocity or avoiding one or more operating conditions of the vehicle, relative to the first trip plan.

  • Patent number: 10416341
    Abstract: Methods and systems are disclosed for the deployment and operation of shipping container scanning systems that enables scanning of containers passing through a modern, highly automated port without impeding the flow of commerce. Locating the scanners where container dwell time is already longest, and configuring scanners to scan up to several containers in parallel but under separate scanning control, minimizes any delay associated with scanning. Operationally integrating scanning systems with the automated logistical port systems ensures smooth, delay-free operation. Controlling the flow of information so that scanning results, including but not limited to images and assessments of the presence or absence of threat material or contraband, are sent only to government Customs and/or security facilities adjacent to but separate from the port insulates port operators from involvement in activities that could slow container throughput.

  • Publication number: 20190088370
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are unique systems and methods for remotely located physician specialists to diagnose and treat patients in a non-acute care facility having symptoms typically indicating a need for transfer to an acute care facility. The disclosed principles minimize the transfer of patients from a non-acute care facility to an acute care facility when not needed. The disclosed principles provide for the use of telemedicine units by geographically remote physician specialists to diagnose and treat patients in a non-acute care facility. If the physician specialist determines via the telemedicine unit that transfer of the patient to higher level of facility is needed, then the patient is transferred. If the physician specialist determines that the patient's new, elevated condition may be treated in the current, lower level facility, the physician specialist can prescribe a treatment for the current facility's staff to implement, even under the supervision of the physician specialist if it is needed.
