  • Patent number: 10711896
    Abstract: A piston for an internal combustion engine may include a piston skirt extending in a piston longitudinal direction and defined in the piston longitudinal direction by a piston head. The piston skirt may include a boxed interior space defined by two box walls and two substantially opposing skirt walls. A boss having a through-opening may be arranged on each of the two box walls, the two through-openings being oriented so that they align with one another. The two box walls may each include a boss portion oriented perpendicularly to the boss, and at least one intermediate portion extending between the respective boss portion and one of the skirt walls. The intermediate portion may merge via a bend into the associated boss portion. A radial extent of the boss portion may be greater than a diameter of the through-opening and at least 50% of a diameter of the piston.

  • Publication number: 20160335551
    Abstract: A computer-implemented fraud detection system comprises a processor and memory storing computer-readable instructions for causing a computer to perform a method for determining potentially fraudulent records. The method performed by the computer comprises executing a trial fraud detection strategy routine on historic records in a database, the trial detection strategy comprising multiple rules including at least one weighting factor. The method further includes calculating an efficiency of the trial fraud detection strategy based on the multiple rules and executing an iterative routine to optimize adjusting the at least one weighting factor. An adjusted fraud detection strategy that incorporates the adjusted weighting factor is set.

  • Patent number: 8477864
    Abstract: A MIMO transmission scheme is provided which provides some advantages of the Alamouti code but which can be adapted so as to provide enhanced performance for a given amount of antenna correlation. A block of complex scalar input symbols is mapped to a block-code matrix which is transmitted as a spacetime signal matrix from an array of two or more antennas. The block-code matrix is assembled by combining input data with specified dispersion matrices. Each of the dispersion matrices is determined, in part, by an adjustable parameter which relates to a degree of beam-forming behavior by the transmission antenna array.
