  • Patent number: 10458372
    Abstract: A method and a device for the dynamic monitoring of an air charging system of an internal combustion engine, subsystems of the air charging system having a low-pass characteristic, and a characteristic state quantity that is to be measured being compared with a modeled, identical state quantity. The measured signal and the modeled signal are filtered using a high-pass filter or bandpass filter, and, given a change in the characteristic state quantity that is to be measured, higher-frequency signal portions are evaluated, which is advantageous with regard to the recognition of so-called slow response errors.

  • 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.

  • Patent number: 10379234
    Abstract: A gamma-ray analysis system is described for analyzing gamma-ray emitting radionuclides. The gamma-ray analysis system includes an analytical apparatus having a gamma-ray detector in operative communication with a modular and scalable shield assembly that encases a sample container having a sample to be tested. The detector communicates data to an electronic interface device that converts the data from an analog format to a digital format before a controller transmits the data to a central laboratory for further data processing, analysis and conclusion by qualified laboratory analysts. The controller runs an application software package on a graphic user interface that allows simple steps for conducting testing and data acquisition by the end user, while permitting real time data transmission between the field site and the central location. Functions were implemented for ensuring laboratory quality results while removing knowledge and experience requirements of an end user.

  • Publication number: 20190208444
    Abstract: The solution presented herein manages the feedback from multiple transmission points by reducing the amount of feedback provided by one or more slave nodes to a controlling master node. To that end, methods and apparatus are provided that determine whether there is a need for the slave node to provide feedback to the master node. Responsive to this determination, the methods and/or apparatus operate the master and/or slave node in a reduced feedback mode that manages the feedback provided by the slave node to the master node such that an amount of feedback provided by the slave node when operating in the reduced feedback mode is less than an amount of feedback provided by the slave node when operating in a full feedback mode.
