  • Publication number: 20220180729
    Abstract: In a method for calculating a location of a traffic incident a processor receives a first alarm message. The alarm message has a device identification, an event time stamp indicating detection of an incident, and a first distance vector. The processor calculates first isodistance information from the first distance vector and receives a second alarm message that has the device identification, the event time stamp, and a second distance vector. The processor calculates a second isodistance information for the second alarm message, and calculates a location of the incident based on the first isodistance information and the second isodistance information.

  • Publication number: 20220080959
    Abstract: In an approach to collaborative accident prevention, that a first vehicle is approaching an intersection is detected. A first vehicle information vector is broadcast from the first vehicle, where the first vehicle information vector contains at least a first vehicle speed, a first vehicle position, and a first vehicle direction. Responsive to receiving a second vehicle information vector from a second vehicle, an optimal order to cross the intersection is calculated based on the first vehicle information vector and the second vehicle information vector. A first adjusted vehicle speed is signaled to the first vehicle and a second adjusted vehicle speed is signaled to the second vehicle based on the optimal order to cross the intersection.

  • Patent number: 9460223
    Abstract: Systems, methods and computer program products for the management of web pages links are disclosed. A method can include, by detecting a broken link event to reach a web page, retrieving within a database of referenced web pages, a referenced identifier of the web page. By using the retrieved referenced identifier, identifying within a database of referencing web pages, zero or more page identifiers identifying zero or more web pages imbedding the broken link. Then, by using each retrieved web page identifier, identifying within a database of web sites, one or more web site identifiers, and generating a broken link notification for each retrieved web site identifier.

  • Patent number: 7962617
    Abstract: For optimizing Internet access resources, a system for billing network access capacities shared across Internet service providers is disclosed. A Client Service Provider (CSP) may rent access on Points Of Presence belonging to a Master Service Provider (MSP) while maintaining a constant security level and providing connection accounting. When a CSP's subscriber sends an access request to a MSP, the MSP analyzes the subscriber's realm and checks the capacities allocated to the subscriber's CSP. If connection is allowed, the MSP sends an authentication request to the CSP. If the subscriber is authenticated, the MSP launches an accounting process based on the subscriber's realm while the CSP may launch an accounting process associated with the subscriber identifier. The cost of rented Points Of Presence capacity is based on total connection time and on the number of simultaneous connections established by the MSP for the CSP, combined with predetermined thresholds.
