|20140285317||Wireless Charging System with Location Verification - The disclosure includes a system and method for charging a target object wirelessly. The system includes a processor and a memory storing instructions that when executed cause the system to: receive data describing a code from a target object, the code being stored on a tagging device and configured to be read wirelessly by a reading device associated with the target object; verify the code; determine that a location associated with the target object satisfies a safe charging range responsive to the verification of the code, the verification of the code indicating a charging distance between a power transmitter and a power receiver associated with the target object satisfies a safe charging distance; and instruct the power transmitter to wirelessly transmit power to the power receiver associated with the target object responsive to determining that the location of the target object satisfies the safe charging range.||09-25-2014|
|20130257387||Optimum Charging for Electric-Based Vehicle - A system and method for controlling charging for a vehicle is disclosed. The system comprises a statistical analyzer, an estimation module and a determination module. The statistical analyzer analyzes a set of data describing utility rate information and one or more behaviors of the vehicle. The estimation module estimates one or more tendency parameters based at least in part on the analyzing. The determination module determines a charging setting based at least in part on the one or more tendency parameters. The charging setting comprises one or more of a target charging battery state of charge (SoC), a charging start time and a charging end time.||10-03-2013|
|20130158895||Signal Processing System - A system and method for processing sensor signals is disclosed. The system comprises a sensor array, a multiplexer, a converter, a selection module and a combination module. The sensor array measures a physical parameter in a first dimension on a seat and generates a first set of sensor signals. The sensor array measures the physical parameter in a second dimension on the seat and generates a second set of sensor signals. The multiplexer multiplexes the first set of sensor signals into a first signal stream and the second set of sensor signals into a second signal stream. The converter converts the first signal stream to a first set of digital signals and the second signal stream to a second set of digital signals. The selection module determines a set of first-dimension data and a set of second-dimension data. The combination module forms a set of two-dimensional data.||06-20-2013|
|20120243740||Scene Determination and Prediction - A system and method for scene determination is disclosed. The system comprises a communication interface, an object detector, a temporal pattern module and a scene determination module. The communication interface receives a video including at least one frame. The at least one frame includes information describing a scene. The object detector detects a presence of an object in the at least one frame and generates at least one detection result based at least in part on the detection. The temporal pattern module generates a temporal pattern associated with the object based at least in part on the at least one detection result. The scene determination module determines a type of the scene based at least in part on the temporal pattern.||09-27-2012|
