  • Publication number: 20200154251
    Abstract: A ruggedized engine control module (ECU) system includes a plugin-pod, a connector configured to connect the plugin-pod to a connector of an ECU, and signal processing circuitry. The ruggedized ECU system further includes a ruggedized enclosure for the connector and the signal processing circuitry. The ruggedized enclosure is configured to mount the plugin-pod to the ECU. The connection circuit includes signal processing circuitry configured to receive signals from at least one of the connectors, process the signals, and output the processed signals. The ruggedized ECU is configured to dissipate heat from the signal processing circuitry.

  • Publication number: 20200090244
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing information regarding vehicle inventory availability to users of an information system are disclosed. When generating a vehicle data page for a particular vehicle at a particular location, the information system may generate an expected duration of availability of the vehicle as a prediction of the time between listing and sale of the vehicle. When the expected duration of availability is below a threshold, a status indicator may be generated and added to the vehicle data page to alert users that the vehicle is expected to remain available for only a short period of time. An estimate of time remaining for the vehicle may also be generated and presented to users as part of the vehicle data page.
