  • Patent number: 10937293
    Abstract: There is provided a method of inventory control for an inventory including items sequentially arranged on one or more structures, each item having a radio frequency tag associated thereto, the tag having stored therein an identifier for identifying the associated item. The method includes: obtaining data in relation to multiple items arranged in a row on a structure, the data comprising multiple sets of identifiers detected from interrogating the tags of the plurality of items at a plurality of instances along the row; determining a sequence of detected items in the row based on the data obtained, the sequence including estimated relative positions of the detected items in the row; and determining whether an item of the detected items in the row is misplaced based on the estimated relative position of the item in the row and a reference relative position of the item in the row.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20190386899
    Abstract: A method (and system, apparatus, and computer product) for reporting traffic data includes, in an onboard unit installed in a vehicle, generating a traffic data report packet including information identifying a location of the vehicle in a traffic network and storing the generated traffic data report packet in a transmission queue. The onboard unit stores and maintains the generated traffic data report packet in the transmission queue with other traffic data report packets in a sequence in accordance with potential transmission times associated with each traffic data report packet. At least a portion of the traffic data report packets stored in the transmission queue is selectively transmitted, as a batch transmission to a traffic center server via a communication link.

  • Patent number: 9843500
    Abstract: A system (and method) includes at least one traffic server to receive traffic information reports transmitted from vehicles located on a traffic network serviced by the at least one traffic server. The traffic network is segmented into a plurality of predefined links, each predefined link associated with a priority level, a reporting latency, and an identification code. An onboard unit in a vehicle transmits traffic information reports to the at least one traffic server. The onboard unit is configured: to determine a current location of the vehicle; based on the current location, to determine on which of a link of the predefined links in the traffic network the vehicle is currently located; to determine a link identification code that corresponds to the link on which the vehicle is currently located; and to generate a traffic data packet to be potentially transmitted by the onboard unit to the at least one traffic server.
