  • Publication number: 20210263184
    Abstract: Systems and methods for detecting a sitting duck scenario of a vehicle on or near a road are disclosed. The current location and speed of the vehicle are used for different comparisons and/or determinations, including a comparison to road-specific information to determine whether the vehicle is in a particular proximity of a highway, and a determination whether the vehicle has been stationary continuously for at least a specified duration. Additional comparisons and/or determinations may be used. If such an occurrence has been detected, one or more notifications are generated, and provided to one or more of the vehicle operator and/or a remote computing server.

  • Publication number: 20210261150
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing speed thresholds for a fleet of vehicles are disclosed. Input is used to provide associations between particular weather-relation conditions (such as rain) and arithmetic operations, that may be used to determine a current speed threshold as a function of a local posted speed limit at the current location of a vehicle. The current speed threshold is subsequently used to detect whether vehicles are exceeding the current speed threshold.

  • Publication number: 20180237281
    Abstract: A nozzle flush adapter includes an externally threaded coupler configured to threadably engage and secure a mixer nozzle in a fluid tight coupling together with a hose receiving coupler having an internal thread configured to engage and secure the threaded end of a conventional water hose in a fluid tight coupling. The nozzle flush adapter facilitates cleaning and reuse of normally disposable mixer nozzles exposed to two-component epoxy adhesives and the like by allowing the user to exercise a method whereby the user is able to flush water under pressure through the mixer nozzle before the material has cured.

  • Patent number: 8708433
    Abstract: A storage system includes a shell having a plurality of walls and a plurality of rails. The plurality of walls are coupled to one another to form a storage chamber therebetween and to define a plurality of intersection edges. Each of the plurality of intersection edges is formed at a corresponding boundary of two adjacent ones of the plurality of walls. The plurality of rails each extend outwardly from a corresponding one of the plurality of intersection edges with an angled orientation relative to each of the two adjacent ones of the plurality of walls. A cross-sectional thickness of each of the plurality of rails increases as each of the plurality of rails extends away from one of the plurality of intersection edges.

  • Patent number: 8418874
    Abstract: A storage assembly includes a bin having side panels, a bottom, a rim, a first reception slot and a second reception slot. The side panels and the bottom define a cavity therebetween. The rim extends from the side panels around a perimeter of an opening to the cavity and in a direction substantially parallel to the bottom. The first reception slot extends from the rim into a first one of the side panels, and the second reception slot extends from the rim into a second one of the side panels. The first one of the side panels is positioned opposite the second one of the side panels. Each of the first and second reception slots is configured to selectively receive a different portion of a divider, which divides the cavity into two or more compartments. Related storage and organization systems, accessories and methods are also disclosed and provide additional advantages.

  • Patent number: 8414092
    Abstract: A storage shell includes sidewalls and rails. The sidewalls each extend between two others of the sidewalls to collectively define a chamber therebetween. The sidewalls create a plurality of intersection lines each being defined along a boundary between two of the plurality of sidewalls. The plurality of are rails each coupled to and radially extends away from a different corresponding one of the plurality of intersection lines relative to a center of the storage shell. Each of the plurality of rails is formed with a Y-shaped cross-section. Related storage and organization systems, and methods are also disclosed and provide additional advantages.
