  • Patent number: 10447556
    Abstract: End user on demand network resource instantiation in software-defined networks (SDN) may be provided by an SDN controller that receives an indication from a physical boost device operated by a network user. The boost device may indicate to the SDN controller that an improvement in network performance is desired by the network user. Once the indication is received, the SDN controller may implement network configuration changes for the improvement and cause the network user to be billed for the improvement.

  • Patent number: 10377310
    Abstract: A vehicle object detection system having a controller configured to process object information received from the plurality of sensors and determine the distance between an outer surface of a vehicle body structure and an object. The controller displays on a video display a faux representation of the object, a faux representation of the outer surface of the vehicle body structure and a numeric representation of the distance between the outer surface of the vehicle body structure and the object. The controller is further configured to switch between operating the video display in display modes including a parallel parking view mode and a backup mode.

  • Patent number: 10361970
    Abstract: A wireless virtual private network (VPN) connection may be automatically instantiated from a wireless VPN client device using a VPN instantiation server. The VPN client device may automatically connect to the VPN instantiation server to obtain client configuration information for a VPN connection to a VPN endpoint server. The VPN instantiation server may instantiate the VPN endpoint server using a network function virtualization (NFV) platform. Then, the VPN client may establish a layer 2 tunnel across a wireless network to the VPN endpoint server.

  • Publication number: 20170347948
    Abstract: A device and method for sleep monitoring, in particular to a device and method for determining time-to-sleep and wake periods during sleep and to a device and method for determining rapid eye movement (REM) sleep and non REM (NREM) sleep. The method for determining time-obtaining motion data representative of motion of a user to-sleep and wake periods during sleep comprising the steps of obtaining motion data representative of motion of a user; detecting the time-to-sleep from the motion data based on a first time-above-threshold (TAT) threshold and a first proportional detecting the time-to-sleep from the motion data based integration method (PIM) threshold; and detecting on a first time-above-threshold (TAT) threshold and a the wake periods during sleep from the motion data first proportional integration method (PIM) threshold based on a second TAT threshold and a second PIM threshold.

  • Patent number: 9195919
    Abstract: A method of forming print instructions in a host for rendering within a fixed amount of memory on a printer receives intermediate data comprising regions which are associated with drawing instructions. A first amount of memory available to render the intermediate data is calculated based on a second amount of memory needed by the printer to store the intermediate data. The host determines a subset of the drawing instructions as complex drawing instructions and renders the complex drawing instructions to the printer as simpler drawing instructions. For regions associated with the complex drawing instructions, the host reassociates the regions with the corresponding simpler drawing instructions to form altered intermediate data which can be rendered on the printer within the determined first amount of memory. The print instructions, including the altered intermediate print data, can then be rendered by the printer to pixel data within the fixed amount of memory.
