  • Patent number: 10909628
    Abstract: Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) may facilitate insurance-related tasks. UAVs may actively survey an area or be dispatched to the scene of a vehicle collision or crash, such as with an insured's permission, and collect data related to the vehicle collision or crash, such as vehicle data, insurer data, images, video, audio, weather conditions, etc., and transmit this data to a computing device. The computing device may be associated with an insurer and/or utilized by an insurer to perform insurance-related tasks, such as processing the data to assign fault to one or more parties or vehicles, such as autonomous vehicles, involved in the vehicle collision or crash, using the fault assignment to open or otherwise process an insurance claim, modifying a premium price, updating qualified discounts, etc. The drone data may also assist an insurer in opening an insurance claim by prepopulating fields associated with a submitted claim form.

  • Publication number: 20210012616
    Abstract: An electronic gaming system includes a processor configured to execute instructions, which when executed, cause the processor to at least receive a wager amount from an electronic gaming machine (EGM), where the wager amount is associated with a player wager in a base bingo game played by a player of the EGM. The instructions also cause the processor to receive a bingo card parameter from the EGM, where the received bingo card parameter is associated with a bingo card provided to the player in the base bingo game, determine, based upon the wager amount, an award eligibility probability, and determine, based at least in part upon the award eligibility probability, whether the player is eligible to receive an award, and in response, compare the received bingo card parameter to a plurality of bingo card parameters, the plurality of bingo card parameters defining a paytable. Moreover, the instructions may cause the processor to determine, based upon the comparison, whether to provide the award to the player.

  • Publication number: 20200221637
    Abstract: A header is supported by a pair of hydraulic float cylinders, where a float pressure to the cylinders is directly controlled by an electronic control supplying a variable control signal to a PPRR valve arrangement to maintain the float pressure at a predetermined value. At the set pressure a predetermined lifting force is provided to the header. A position sensor is used to generate an indication of movement and/or acceleration and/or velocity. The electronic control is arranged, in response to changes in the sensor signal, to temporarily change the control signal to vary the lifting force and thus change the dynamic response of the hydraulic float cylinder. A lift force greater than that required to lift the header can be provided by a lift cylinder and can be opposed in a controlled manner to apply a controlled downforce by the back of the same cylinder or by a separate component.

  • Patent number: 10716017
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, for telecommunications network troubleshooting. In one aspect, a method includes obtaining multiple current observations characterizing current operation of a telecommunications network, the multiple observations including performance monitoring data for the network and quality of service data for the network. One or more prior network states for the network are obtained. A current state of the network is determined, by a machine learning model, based on the current observations and the one or more prior network states. One or more actions are performed based on the current state of the network, including, when the current state of the network is an abnormal state, taking an action that is mapped to the abnormal state.
