  • Patent number: 11416800
    Abstract: Systems, method and computer program products for presenting to a user a visualization of a vehicle dealer performance assessment based on dealer location and vehicle sales transaction data, where the assessment is based on geographically normalized metrics. Dealer location data and historical vehicle sales transaction data is collected by a in a vehicle data system from external data sources. Distances from dealers to geographical regions of interest are determined, and differences between these distances are normalized to produce competition zone indices for the geographical regions. The competition zone indices are then used to aggregate the geographical regions into different competition zones in which dealers of interest have corresponding levels of competitive advantage or disadvantage, normalized according to typical distances associated with transactions in the respective geographical regions.

  • Patent number: 11385948
    Abstract: A distributed database system maintains data for a database client by storing data on a plurality of storage nodes. Upon receiving a request from the database client in a first format, the database system translates the request to a second format and sends the translated request to a storage subsystem. The storage subsystem generates an exception if the translated request cannot be successfully completed. The distributed database system resends the translated request on behalf of the database client if the exception corresponds to a request that can be retried, and continues to resend the translated request until a first of an expiration of a predetermined time period or until the request completes successfully. The distributed database system sends a response to the database client based on the resent database request.

  • Patent number: 11061553
    Abstract: The present technology provide a mechanism for displaying and initiating actions and workflows for objects with a single drag-and-drop operation in association with a content management system. Drag operations may be monitored to trigger monitoring of a pointer performing the drag operation to detect whether the pointer is within a threshold distance from a chosen aspect, such as a system tray icon, and/or an area of a temporary invisible window. Upon detection, the drag operation of the objects may seamlessly trigger a presentation of a menu window. The menu window may display one or more icons representing different actions and workflows for which the object may be dropped, via a drop operation, upon to indicate a selection.

  • Patent number: 11057632
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for panoramic multimedia streaming where viewers may control spatial coverage of panoramic video components of multimedia signals are disclosed. A novel flexible streaming server is devised to perform client-specific content filtering in addition to adapting multimedia signals to characteristics of individual client devices as well as to varying capacities of network paths to client devices. The server may distribute software modules to client devices to enable viewers to communicate preferred view regions of a panoramic scene. The server includes a learning module devised to retain viewing-preference data, correlate viewing preference to characteristics of client devices, and determine a default viewing preference for each client device. The server implements computationally efficient schemes of generating and distributing content-filtered multimedia signals to clients.
