  • Patent number: 11405473
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described herein for detecting information that indicates that a user will be traveling from a first geographic location to a second geographic location, and responsively accessing a playlist indicated by a profile of the user that indicates a plurality of streaming media that the user intends to consume. Control circuitry may then compare data corresponding to each streaming media of the plurality of streaming media to a database to determine whether each streaming media of the plurality of streaming media is accessible to the user at the second geographic location, and may determine that a subset of the plurality of media is not accessible to the user at the second geographic location. In response to determining that the subset is not accessible to the user at the second geographic location, the control circuitry may download each media of the subset.

  • Patent number: 10995715
    Abstract: A coil assembly in a fuel injector includes a magnetic core and; a winding wound around the core, the winding being overmoulded and forming a cylindrical overmoulding. An axial blind hole extends towards the interior of the coil assembly from a first surface to a distal end, the blind hole being suitable for housing at least one spring for loading a magnetic armature. The coil assembly is provided with a degassing hole passing through the core and the overmoulding from the blind axial hole to an axial outer cylindrical surface, the degassing hole being provided in the magnetic core and having a restriction that is arranged in a first section that is proximal to the blind axial hole.

  • Patent number: 9779624
    Abstract: The invention concerns a method of driving assistance for assisting a human driver in safely driving a vehicle called host vehicle, implemented by a processor on board of said host vehicle. The host vehicle comprises means for obtaining first information relative to the host vehicle and means for obtaining second information relative to at least one other vehicle in a neighborhood of the host vehicle, said first and second information being obtained at regular time instants, comprising triggering an intervention of a collision avoidance system. The method comprises a step (51) of intervention decision adapted to decide whether to trigger the intervention of the collision avoidance system at a current time instant (Tc) or to postpone said intervention decision at a later time instant (Tl) depending upon additional first and second information to be acquired between the current time instant (Tc) and the later time instant (Tl), said additional first and second information having an associated probability.

  • Publication number: 20160185347
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for assessing the risk of collision between a first vehicle approaching an intersection and at least one second vehicle driving through said intersection, said first vehicle being provided with a measurement means and a computing means. The method according to the invention is mainly characterised in that same includes the following steps: a step of determining the respective positions of said first vehicle and each second vehicle, a step of estimating the intentions of the driver of said first vehicle and of each second vehicle, a step of estimating the need for the first vehicle and for each second vehicle to stop in accordance with the results provided by the two preceding steps and the traffic rules applicable to said intersection, and a step of estimating the risk of collision between the first vehicle and each second vehicle.
