  • Patent number: 10832575
    Abstract: Methods and systems for alerting a driver of a vehicle of parking conditions within a predetermined distance of a destination. The system includes a transceiver of the vehicle configured to receive, from one or more other vehicles, parking condition data including one or more indicators of parking conditions within the predetermined distance of the destination. The system also includes an electronic control unit (ECU) of the vehicle connected to the transceiver. The ECU is configured to determine a parking congestion level based on the parking condition data. The ECU is also configured to determine whether the parking congestion level exceeds a threshold parking congestion level. The ECU is also configured to instruct an output device to alert the driver of parking congestion near the destination when the parking congestion level exceeds the threshold parking congestion level.

  • Patent number: 10501033
    Abstract: A vehicular data correlation system includes a first network access device (NAD) of a first vehicle; and a database server having processing circuitry. The processing circuitry is configured to cross-reference a first driver settings dataset in a driver settings database to a first vehicle dataset in a vehicle database to form a first enhanced data packet, cross-reference a first vehicle conditions dataset in a vehicle conditions database to a first driver dataset in a driver database to form a second enhanced data packet, correlate the first enhanced data packet with the second enhanced data packet, download the first enhanced data packet to the first NAD, download the second enhanced data packet to the first NAD, and transmit a first initiation signal to implement the first driver settings dataset and to display the first vehicle conditions dataset on the first vehicle, via the first NAD.

  • Publication number: 20170305270
    Abstract: Systems and methods for infotainment system startup are provided. One embodiment of a method includes determining a user-defined startup priority associated with a plurality of vehicle service classifications, where the plurality of vehicle service classifications are associated with a plurality of respective vehicle services. Embodiments also include receiving an indication of vehicle startup, determining whether at least two of the plurality of vehicle services in at least two of the plurality of vehicle service classifications are to be activated in response to vehicle startup, and in response to determining that at least two of the plurality of vehicle services are to be activated in response to vehicle startup, determining a startup order of the plurality of vehicle services, based on the user-defined startup priority. Embodiments also include initiating startup of the plurality of vehicle services according to the startup order.

  • Publication number: 20170208074
    Abstract: Systems and methods include a data communications module (DCM) having a control area network (CAN) bus configured to be connected to an OBD port. A DLC having a high DLC branch line is connected to a high main bus line of the CAN bus and a low DLC branch line is connected to a low main bus line of the CAN bus. The DCM also includes a DDC connected between the DLC and the low main bus line of the CAN bus. The DDC is configured to transmit a signal to a telematics ECU when an external device connects with the OBD port. The DCM also includes a network access device (NAD) configured to initiate a signal to one or more notification centers when the external device connects with the OBD port.
