  • Patent number: 11347560
    Abstract: The disclosed technology teaches initializing an application instance using a SaaS model in a project implemented on a cloud-based computing service, including running a configuration engine that links a service provider for SaaS application to set configuration parameters for the project and initializing the project in which an application instance will be built, then removing the authorization of the configuration engine to access the project and removing access to set the parameters. The technology also includes running a SaaS application infrastructure builder autonomously, without the service provider having access to the builder, to build the instance, and then delivering the application as a SaaS service.

  • Patent number: 11230329
    Abstract: An air drag reduction apparatus attaches to the rear of vehicles having a generally rectangular rear end, such as tractor trailers, busses, and recreational vehicles. A left side roller is mounted in a generally vertical orientation to the rear of the vehicle and a right side roller is mounted in a generally vertical orientation to the rear of the vehicle, where the left side roller and the right side roller are each rotatable about a vertical axis. The left side roller and the right side roller may be mounted with attachment mechanisms which allow the rollers to each be moved out of the way as the rear door or doors of the vehicle are opened.

  • Patent number: 10525182
    Abstract: The disclosed subject matter relates to extracorporeal blood processing or other processing of fluids. Volumetric fluid balance, a required element of many such processes, may be achieved with multiple pumps or other proportioning or balancing devices which are to some extent independent of each other. This need may arise in treatments that involve multiple fluids. Safe and secure mechanisms to ensure fluid balance in such systems are described.
