  • Patent number: 10621024
    Abstract: A system includes a central processing unit (CPU), a first input/output (I/O) module, and a second I/O module. The first I/O module includes a first module health controller operatively connected to the CPU. The second I/O module includes a second module health controller operatively connected to the first module health controller and the CPU. One of the first module health controller and the second module health controller is configured to assert a paired module health signal to the CPU indicating that the first I/O module and the second I/O module are health.

  • Patent number: 10621031
    Abstract: A system includes a first computer, a second computer, and an active computer system determining module. The first computer receives a second computer health signal from the second computer indicating a fault in the second computer and generates a first computer system health signal indicating a fault in the first and/or second computer. The active computer system determining module receives the first computer system health signal and generates a standby signal based on the first computer system health signal. The second computer receives the standby signal and disables one or more of its output ports based on the standby signal.

  • Patent number: 6535856
    Abstract: Methods and software of the present invention include maintaining a database of buyers and sellers, updating the database with information from sellers about buyers who have defaulted on payment terms, processing data about buyers who have defaulted on payment terms, notifying the buyer(s) who have defaulted of a time to cure the default, determining when a buyer fails to cure a default in time, and notifying all sellers who sell to the buyer who failed to cure the default that the buyer failed to cure the default. According to another embodiment, sellers are classified according to the types of goods/services which they sell and when a buyer fails to cure a default all sellers in the same class as the seller which was party to the default are notified. According to another embodiment, all members in the system may obtain information about any other member in the system prior to doing business with the other member. Individual members of the system may be at once both a buyer and a seller, e.g.

  • Patent number: 4975969
    Abstract: Method, apparatus and security system for uniquely identifying individual by their particular physical characteristics are provided. In particular, facial parameters which are defined as being the distances between identifiable points on the human face, and/or ratios of the facial parameters can be used to identify an individual as the parameters for each individual are unique. Thus, by coding the parameter and/or parameter ratio information of an individual on a card, and by scanning the face of the presenter of that card to obtain parameter and/or parameter ratio information of the presenter, a determination can be made as to whether the presenter is that individual whose information is on the card. Particular parameters such as the distance between the eye retinae, the distance from each eye retinae to the nose bottom and to the mouth center, and the distance from the nose bottom to the mouth center are set forth, as they may be particularly defined due to the shadowed definable points at each end.
