  • Patent number: 10920711
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for a water jacket diverter. In one example, the water jacket diverter may be formed by injection molding and includes features such as cut-outs, an inlet ledge, a continuous upper rail, and one or more fins. The water jacket diverter may increase coolant flow in an upper portion of the water jacket, thereby increasing a cooling efficiency at an upper region of a cylinder block.

  • Patent number: 10893213
    Abstract: Devices and methods for capturing vehicle undercarriage images are described. In some instances, a mirror assembly may be used to reflect images of portions of a vehicle undercarriage into a field of view of a camera to be captured, e.g., as a vehicle passes over the mirror assembly. Composite images may be reconstructed from the reflected portions of the vehicle undercarriage, and analysis may be performed on those reconstructed, composite images to identify features in the composite vehicle undercarriage images.

  • Publication number: 20200234517
    Abstract: Methods and systems for capturing and processing audio data of a vehicle engine. In one aspect, a vehicle audio capture system includes a mobile device configured to capture vehicle engine sounds in an audio file and to associate tags identifying one or more vehicle conditions observed during audio capture and reflected in the audio file, and a server configured to process the audio file and expose an application programming interface (API) to provide access to the audio file to one or more data consumer devices. In some instances, a condition report server is configured to access the application programming interface to retrieve a version of the audio file and include data describing the audio file within a vehicle condition report. Additionally, tags may be added to the audio file based on detected engine conditions. Detection of engine conditions may be based on use of trained models.

  • Patent number: 10695932
    Abstract: There is disclosed a food slicing device for slicing food products which has a pre-cooling device for cooling the food product before the slicing and a cutting device with a cutting blade. A temperature registration device for measuring the temperature of the food product and a control unit are provided, wherein the control unit is designed to calculate, based on the temperature measured by the temperature registration device, an instruction for the operation of the pre-cooling device, wherein the pre-cooling device is controllable depending on this instruction. The disclosure furthermore relates to a method for slicing a food product in which the food product is pre-cooled in a pre-cooling device, the temperature of the food product is measured after the pre-cooling and before or after the slicing of the food product, and the operation of the pre-cooling device is adjusted depending on the measured temperature level of the food product.

  • Publication number: 20200014159
    Abstract: An improved patch panel assembly includes a frame and faceplate that mate with a housing, and the housing defines a plurality of individual communication ports. The housing is mounted to the patch panel frame and includes jack openings that accommodate data jacks and circuit board openings that accommodate mating blades of circuit boards. The two sets of openings are separated on the housing by an intervening spacing and interposer terminal sets are provided to electrically interconnect the jacks with circuits on the circuit boards. The patch panel housings may be formed in discrete groupings so that, if desired, the patch panels may have ports that are grouped together by bandwidth, storage capability and the like. Inasmuch as the housings are mounted to the patch panel frames, the jacks and the circuit boards can be easily and individually replaced, repaired or upgraded with similar components without requiring disassembly of the patch panel.

  • Publication number: 20190362008
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, method, and computer program product embodiments for providing a natural, pen-and-paper user experience that harnesses cutting edge artificial intelligence and machine learning to enhance user interactions with data in a suite of software applications. The pen-and-paper user experience may mimic the time-honored human tradition of writing with pen and paper, allowing users to work in an intuitive, productive, familiar fashion. The user experience may automatically retrieve objects, e.g., data, charts, tables, graphs, etc. from backend systems and display the objects in the user experience. The user experience may allow users to provide additional natural language directly on or around the objects and update the displayed results accordingly.

    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, method, and computer program product embodiments for providing a natural, pen-and-paper user experience that harnesses cutting edge artificial intelligence and machine learning to enhance user interactions with data in a suite of software applications. The pen-and-paper user experience may mimic the time-honored human tradition of writing with pen and paper, allowing users to work in an intuitive, productive, familiar fashion, while incorporating artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques to interpret a user's natural language and other pen-strokes in order to better interpret a user's natural language and resolve ambiguity in user inputs. A pen-and-paper-based user experience may be extended and enhanced to allow a user to interact with a suite of applications, a launchpad, a key performance indicator tool, a digital boardroom, or other application using the same pen-and-paper-based design paradigm.
