  • Patent number: 7359720
    Abstract: A system and method of for exchanging information between a wireless network and an external system is disclosed. The wireless network detects trigger events related to communications with wireless subscribers. Certain event triggers cause the wireless system to create a message to send to the external system. In response the external system may send information to the wireless system. The wireless system may create messages upon detection of handoff, origination, status, registration or other activity by the wireless subscriber. The invention may also detect trigger events related one mass media broadcasts. An interface translates between the different protocols of the wireless and the external or wireline networks to allow for automatic call redirection. The application can be utilized between many networks and facilitates the utilization of the architecture of a wirelined network and the home location register of the wireless network for various applications on the wireless network.

  • Patent number: 6317594
    Abstract: A system and method of for exchanging information between a wireless network and an external system is disclosed. The wireless network detects trigger events related to communications with wireless subscribers. Certain event triggers cause the wireless system to create a message and to send that message to the external system. In response the external system may respond by sending data or information to the wireless system. The messages created by the wireless system may be in the form of query messages. The wireless system may create messages for the external system upon detection of handoff, origination, status, registration or other activity by the wireless subscriber.

  • Patent number: 5423523
    Abstract: An actively controlled mount system to control vibration which permits static forces from a machine while decoupling the transmission of dynamic vibrational forces. The mount system provides a reduction of force losses from a first generating area to a second force applying area to actively control vibrations of a vibrating element. These force losses are minimized due to minimization of the mass and velocity of fluid pumped by pumping the fluid through short large cross-sectional area passageways. The device provides for channeling of the forces to the vibrating element in a uniaxial direction and constrains the application of forces in non-working directions.

  • Patent number: 5332203
    Abstract: An actively controlled mount system to control vibration which permits static forces from a machine while decoupling transmission of dynamic vibration forces. The mount system includes opposed force chamber (156, 160) with pistons which control movement of an engine connected bushing (3) to allow compensatory force generated by the opposed chambers to transfer thereto to attenuate vibration from the engine.

  • Patent number: 5219037
    Abstract: A mount assembly is provided for mounting a component, such as an engine, to a vehicle for active control of vibration. The assembly includes first and second mounting members and, an intermediate insert with first and second elastomeric systems connecting said first and second mounting members with the intermediate insert in between. An actuator in parallel with said first elastomeric system provides vertical force to said first elastomeric system to provide a relatively soft vertical rate. A controller operates the actuator in response to sensed vibration so that the vertical force tends to avoid or cancel it. A relatively high fore/aft and lateral dynamic rate of the first system protects the actuator. The second elastomeric system connects the second mounting member with the intermediate insert and exhibits a relatively high vertical rate and a relatively soft fore/aft and lateral rate. One or more sensors feeds data to a controller that analyzes the vibrations to determine the harmonics thereof.

  • Patent number: 5052510
    Abstract: A hybrid type vibration isolation mounting apparatus for supporting a first member at a second member, and including a passive vibration absorbing device, such as a typical rubberized engine mount, located between the first and second members, and an active vibration actuator for applying counter vibration isolation forces in parallel in response to the detected relative vibration of the first and second members, wherein the actuator is located on a support mount frame attached to the second member. The support mount frame provides a structure for the actuator force application, with continuous transfer of static loads between the first and second member being provided by the passive device. In its preferred embodiment, the apparatus is utilized in conjunction with vehicle engine mounts wherein the first member comprises the engine and the second member comprises the vehicle frame.
