  • Publication number: 20220106059
    Abstract: Systems, methods, computer-readable medium, vehicles, and engines provided herein include or implement flexible engine monitoring features. In one aspect, a user-modifiable file containing selected parameters is uploaded to a vehicle having a propulsion system, such as an engine. A computing device associated with the engine generates, without modifying reporting software or any other software, a parameter reporting list that includes the selected parameters. During operation, parameter values for the selected parameters are recorded. In another aspect, a data query is transmitted to an aerial vehicle while in-flight. The data query includes a user-modifiable file that contains selected parameters for which parameter values are to be recorded. A computing device associated with the engine generates, without modifying reporting software or any other software, a parameter reporting list that includes the selected parameters.

  • Publication number: 20210248547
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure include apparatuses, computer-implemented methods, and computer program products for automatic product verification and shelf product gap analysis. Some embodiments utilize a multi-imager imaging engine to capture at least two image data objects associated with at least a near field and a far field via corresponding near and far-field imagers. The far field image data object in some embodiments is processed to identify, and/or detect and decode, product information on a product label at a shelving location for future processing. The near-field image data object may be processed to identify a product set located within the environment surrounding the product label. The information identified from each image data object may be processed to identify whether one or more product mismatches, pricing mismatches, and/or product gaps are present at the shelving location, with improved likelihood of success for each task.

  • Patent number: 11084698
    Abstract: A system and method for monitoring a vehicle are presented. The system includes a first imaging subsystem for acquiring a plurality of load-carrying-portion images. A cargo-detection subsystem is configured for analyzing each of the plurality of load-carrying-portion images to determine whether cargo is positioned on the load-carrying portion of the vehicle. A power-detection subsystem is configured for determining when the vehicle is running. A motion-detection subsystem is configured for determining when the vehicle is in motion. An analytics subsystem is configured for calculating at least one of (i) the amount of time that the vehicle is running, (ii) the amount of time that the vehicle is running while cargo is positioned on the load-carrying portion, (iii) the amount of time the vehicle is in motion, and (iv) the amount of time the vehicle is in motion while cargo is positioned on the load-carrying portion.

  • Publication number: 20210216892
    Abstract: Various embodiments described herein relate to device abuse detection using machine learning. In this regard, a system compares accelerometer data of an electronic device with a plurality of defined accelerometer threshold values to identify a primary abuse event category associated with the electronic device. In response to the primary abuse event category being identified, the system generates a first prediction for a secondary abuse event category associated with the electronic device based on a machine learning technique associated with inertial data of the electronic device, image data generated by the electronic device, and audio data captured by the electronic device. Furthermore, the system transmits the inertial data, the image data and the audio data to a network server device associated with a machine learning service to facilitate generation of a second prediction for the secondary abuse event category based on the inertial data, the image data, and the audio data.
