Further instructions may include transmitting the captured images from the one or more vehicles to one or more event responders.||12-26-2013|
|20130338873||VEHICLE SERVICE AUCTION SYSTEMS AND METHODS - Various embodiments relates to a vehicle servicing auction method and system. Based on vehicle diagnostic information transmitted to a vehicle servicing bidding, a vehicle servicing bidding event may be initiated. The bidding event may include submitting requests for bids to one or more vehicle service providers and receiving bids from the vehicle service providers for servicing the vehicle based on a servicing need determined from the vehicle diagnostic information. One or more bids may be received from one or more vehicle service providers and the bids output at a vehicle computing system. The user may select a bid as acceptance of the bid at the vehicle computing system. In some embodiments, the bids may be sorted by bid amount. Location information for the vehicle service provider who submitted the user selected bid may be output. A route to the vehicle service provider may be generated based on the location information.||12-19-2013|
|20130311001||METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR PREVENTING UNAUTHORIZED VEHICLE OPERATION USING FACE RECOGNITION - Various embodiments relate to systems and methods for detecting an unauthorized use of a vehicle. One or more facial images of one or more authorized drivers of a vehicle may be stored on a vehicle computing system. After detecting movement of the vehicle, one or more facial images of a driver of the vehicle may be periodically received from at least one in-vehicle camera. The one or more captured facial images of the driver may be periodically processed based on the stored facial images of the one or more authorized drivers to determine if the driver is an authorized driver. If the driver is not an authorized driver based on the periodic determination, vehicle operation may be disabled. If the driver is authorized based on the periodic determination, operation of the vehicle may continue.||11-21-2013|
|20130233156||METHODS AND SYSTEMS FOR DOWNLOADING EFFECTS TO AN EFFECTS UNIT - Various embodiments relate to a systems and methods for downloading one or more effects to an effects unit. One or more effects may be received on an effects unit. Audio signals for the one or more effects may be processed based on instructions for processing the audio signals received with the one or more effects.

|20120327300||ADAPTIVE MEDIA DELAY MATCHING - A system may be provided for synchronizing a first media stream with a second media stream. A first receiver in the system may receive the first media stream over a network. A second receiver in the system may receive the second media stream over the network. The second receiver may determine an identity of a content delay matching stream that indicates the amount of processing delay introduced in the first media stream by a processing component of the first receiver or transmitter. The second receiver may subscribe to the identified content delay matching stream. The second receiver may receive the content delay matching stream over the network and determine the processing delay from the content delay matching stream. The receiver may cause the second media stream to be delayed in accordance with the processing delay in the first media stream such that the first and second media streams are synchronized.||12-27-2012|
