  • Publication number: 20240163662
    Abstract: An example operation includes one or more of receiving a request into a transport network comprising at least one transport for a proposed use of personal data associated with the at least one transport prior to the at least one transport entering an area; receiving into the transport network a deletion time of the personal data, prior to the at least one transport entering the area; providing, from the transport network an acknowledgement of the deletion time; and providing, from the transport network, the personal data when the at least one transport is in the area based on the received acknowledgement. This enables an occupant of a transport to share personal data relating to the transport with confidence that the data will be deleted by an agreed time.

  • Patent number: 11787434
    Abstract: When a transport is operating, there may be circumstances where the transport may be at least partially compromised and may be less safe than normal. In such situations where the transport is determined as being unsafe, the transport may act to limit the functionality of the transport. An example operation may include confirming that a transport includes at least one component that is not an original or authorized component, and limiting a functionality of the transport when it is determined that the operator of the transport is not associated with the transport.

  • Patent number: 11211844
    Abstract: An electric brake assembly for a planetary reduction drive includes a first housing defining a brake housing compartment, first and second stators disposed within the brake housing compartment, and a rotor disposed within the brake housing compartment between the first and second stators. The rotor has a spline engaging an output shaft of a motor. The electric brake assembly also includes a brake end cap coupled to the first housing and defining a cylindrical volume, a plug movably disposed in the cylindrical volume of the brake end cap, a spring disposed within the cylindrical volume of the brake end cap and compressed by the plug to apply a spring biasing force for pressing the second stator against the rotor, and an electric brake coil positioned adjacent to the second stator to electromagnetically pull the second stator away from the rotor when energized.

  • Patent number: 9692529
    Abstract: A system, method and computer program product for signal emitter identification using Higher-Order Cumulants (HOC) is presented. At least one transient signal is received from an emitter when the emitter turns on. The at least one transient signal is processed using at least one Higher-Order Cumulant (HOC) to provide a set of entries for a vector table. A feature vector is derived from the vector table, the feature vector identifying the emitter. The feature vector is used to identify an emitter.
