  • Publication number: 20220191151
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and machine-readable media for defining data formats, reflecting system states of managed systems, and managing aspects of those systems via a logically centralized proxy are disclosed. Resources may be represented within a resource provider definition, a package of data format and interaction methods used to instantiate a resource provider, which is a running instance of an executable from the resource provider definition. Users may submit new resource provider definitions, view a list of definitions, and delete definitions. A resource provider service may access the resource provider definition and instantiate a resource provider. The resource provider instance instantiated from the resource provider definition exposes an API, via the resource provider service, to manage data items defined for the resource(s) in the resource provider definition. When the resource is changed, information tracking the state may be updated to reflect the new state of the managed resource.

  • Publication number: 20220148437
    Abstract: Systems and methods for facilitating communication between a number of different computing devices are provided. A service entity that provides a multi-modal transportation service can collaborate with a number of different devices via a vehicle integration interface over a number of different frequencies or networks. The vehicle integration interface includes a number of endpoints. Each endpoint corresponds to a device type associated with a number of devices operated according to a unique protocol. The service entity obtains a communication or provides a message to a respective device via a respective endpoint of the vehicle integration interface. The service entity determines a device type associated with a received communication based on a respective endpoint and translates the communication based on the device type. The translated communication is aggregated with information received from a number of different devices configured to operate and communicate according to a number of different protocols.

  • Publication number: 20210350046
    Abstract: Systems and methods for simulating aircraft systems are provided. A system includes simulation entity agents defined to represent the behavior of multi-modal ride-sharing agents (e.g., aerial vehicle, ground vehicle, air traffic controllers, etc.) and world data representing a world environment within which the simulation entity agents may operate. The system obtains agent data indicative of a simulation aerial vehicle and world data indicative of a particular simulated world environment. The system determines scenario data including a scenario definition defining a simulation scenario and generates a simulation instance based on the scenario data. The simulation instance includes the simulation aerial vehicle within the simulated world environment. The simulation aerial vehicle can have access, within the simulation, to one or more backend services of a transportation services system configured to facilitate an aerial transportation service.

  • Patent number: 10438149
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes a system, method and computer readable medium capable of verifying healthcare encounters. In one embodiment, an electronic verification process is described which may utilize geographical information to determine the proximity of a health care worker to the patient during a scheduled healthcare visit. The proximity information may then be compared to a threshold value and an electronic signature screen may be presented to the patient based upon the results of the comparison. In one embodiment, a time stamp may be generated and stored to provide confirmation as to the time that the patient's electronic signature was obtained via the electronic signature screen. Verification information stored by the system may be used to simplify the verification process, hasten payments to healthcare organizations and protect against healthcare fraud.
