  • Patent number: 11346441
    Abstract: A transmission includes an input shaft coupled to a prime mover, a countershaft, main shaft, and an output shaft, with gears between the countershaft and the main shaft. The shift actuator is mounted on an exterior wall of a housing including the countershaft and the main shaft. A shift control circuit operates a shift actuator using a first opposing pulse command and a first actuating pulse command, and releases pressure with shift actuating and opposing volumes of the shift actuator upon determining a shift completion event.

  • Patent number: 11150885
    Abstract: A method includes receiving, at a data hub onboard an asset, a new configuration file, a service program, and a software update of a software application of the asset from a remote location. The data hub includes a current configuration file that indicates a current configuration state of the software application. The new configuration file indicates an updated configuration state of the software application with the software update. The service program includes work instructions for applying the updated configuration state to the software application. The method includes displaying the current configuration file and the new configuration file onboard the asset using the data hub. The method also includes updating the software application with the updated configuration state according to the work instructions of the service program using the data hub.

  • Patent number: 10764295
    Abstract: The present invention provides a computer implemented method, a system, and a computer program product of monitoring service policy management. In an exemplary embodiment, the computer implemented method, the system, and the computer program product include (1) receiving, by a computer system, a user-id when a new user logs onto a target network, (2) in response to the receiving, fetching, by the computer system, a rule associated with the new user, and (3) replacing, by the computer system, an active rule in a network monitoring service with the fetched rule such that the network monitoring service is configured to use the fetched rule, instead of the replaced active rule, for monitoring network events and creating an alert.

  • Publication number: 20200252431
    Abstract: A system, method and computer program product obtains user data relating to a plurality of system users, who have previously been granted access to a resource in a context without complying with a ruleset defining criteria for automatically accessing the resource in the context. A combination of two or more user data properties having common values in user data of a subset of two or more of the plurality of system users is identified. A determination of whether the number of system users in the subset exceeds a predetermined threshold is made. If the number of system users in the subset exceeds the predetermined threshold, the ruleset is updated to include criteria based on the identified combination of two or more user data properties.

  • Patent number: 10449909
    Abstract: A base roof rack system for use in a vehicle having a glass roof. A set of base brackets are installed at the factor proximate to the seam between a glass room and metal support members of the vehicle supporting the roof. A j-shaped hook is able to slide in the seam to access the base bracket. Rotation of the bracket inserts the hook into a cavity formed in the base bracket so that it resist pull out when oriented normal to the roof surface. A tower receives the other end of J-shaped hook, a threaded bolt, and a retaining nut threaded about the bolt compresses the tower down toward the roof.

  • Publication number: 20190095913
    Abstract: A method of authorizing payment for an online transaction according to a credit plan using a payment scheme infrastructure. A real and a virtual account number for a credit plan for a transaction are received from a credit issuer. The transaction is received for authorization from a merchant gateway—the transaction is completed for the virtual card number. The payment scheme infrastructure uses the virtual card number to obtain or confirm authorization for the credit plan, and recovers the real account number from the virtual card number to obtain authorization of the transaction from an issuer for the real account number. In this way the transaction is authorized if the credit plan is authorized and the transaction is authorized by the issuer for the real account number using suitable methods and apparatus at the payment scheme infrastructure, at the credit issuer computing system, and at the merchant computing system.

  • Patent number: 9684903
    Abstract: A system and method for remotely providing expert assistance receive identification information from a mobile device that is representative of a component and communicate the identification information to remotely located expert personnel. The system and method also receive an expert-identified work scope that includes guidance information for display on the mobile device to guide the operator through diagnosing, repairing, testing, and/or replacing the component. The system and method also store the expert-identified work scope and the identification information such that the expert-identified work scope is associated with the identification information. The system and method compare subsequently received identification information with the stored identification information and automatically select and communicate the expert-identified work scope based on comparing the subsequently received identification information with the stored identification information.
