  • Patent number: 10891693
    Abstract: A method for evaluating fraudulent data in a Usage Based Insurance (UBI) system, includes retrieving trip data for a driver from a database. A processor on a computer determines tough context incidents in the trip data. Driving behavior of the driver during said tough context incidents is compared with driving behavior of other drivers during similar tough context incidents. The trip data is identified as potentially fraudulent if the driver's driving behavior is better by a predetermined amount compared to the other drivers' driving behavior.

  • Patent number: 10885072
    Abstract: Techniques facilitating resolution-based spatial computing are provided. In one example, a computer-implemented method comprises traversing, by a device operatively coupled to a processor, a data structure corresponding to a land area for a location having an index; and determining, by the device, whether the location is at least partially within the land area based on a result of the traversing. In some embodiments, the traversing comprises: obtaining a threshold number of levels based at least in part on a resolution parameter; scanning a first level of the data structure for a node having an index corresponding to the index of the location; and iterating the scanning for respective subsequent levels of the data structure based on the scanning returning a node having subordinate nodes and a number of levels for which the scanning and iterating have been performed being less than the threshold number of levels.
