|20150019131||LOCATION-BASED SECURITY - In one disclosed embodiment, a portable user-carried device includes wireless communication circuitry capable of determining a relative direction of a wireless signal in a vehicle. A processor may be programmed to determine a location of the device within a vehicle based upon the relative direction of the wireless signal as determined by the wireless communication circuitry. In a disclosed method for activating a function in a vehicle, a state of a user-carried portable device is determined. A function is activated based upon the state of the user-carried portable device.||01-15-2015|
|20140163809||COMMUNICATION SYSTEM WITH PERSONAL INFORMATION MANAGEMENT AND REMOTE VEHICLE MONITORING AND CONTROL FEATURES - A vehicle communication system includes a control unit in a vehicle, a vehicle data bus operable to transmit vehicle data to the control unit, and a mobile communication device having data network access. The mobile device has a self-contained mode in which the mobile communication device processes and displays the network data received via the data network and in which the control unit transmits the vehicle data to the mobile communication device. The mobile communication device also has an immersive mode in which the control unit processes the network data received via the data network and in which the control unit converts the vehicle data to audible speech and plays the audible speech in the vehicle.||06-12-2014|
|20140148972||DRIVING EVENT CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM - This vehicle monitoring system provides a plurality of sensors in the vehicle recording performance of the vehicle. A processor (remote or on-board) receives data from the sensors. The processor classifies the data from the at least one sensor as an event in one of a plurality of classifications. The processor associates at least one parameter with the classification.||05-29-2014|
|20130338919||USER-CENTRIC PLATFORM FOR DYNAMIC MIXED-INITIATIVE INTERACTION THROUGH COOPERATIVE MULTI-AGENT COMMUNITY - A user-centric vehicle platform may include an in-vehicle device. A user portal remote from the in-vehicle device provides a plurality of user agents communicating with the in-vehicle device.||12-19-2013|
|20130245873||MONITORING OF POWER CHARGING IN VEHICLE - A energy meter unit for an electric vehicle contains energy measuring circuitry, a GPS unit, a CPU, and memory. The energy meter unit is capable of detecting the amount of energy charged at a specific location and storing that information for later uses, such as with a governmental incentive program.||09-19-2013|
|20130218563||SPEECH UNDERSTANDING METHOD AND SYSTEM - A speech recognition system includes a mobile device and a remote server. The mobile device receives the speech from the user and extracts the features and phonemes from the speech. Selected phonemes and measures of uncertainty are transmitted to the server, which processes the phonemes for speech understanding and transmits a text of the speech (or the context or understanding of the speech) back to the mobile device.||08-22-2013|
|20130218445||TRAFFIC PORTAL ENQUIRY AND ALERT SYSTEM - A method for monitoring travel by a vehicle includes monitoring location of a vehicle as it travels along a plurality of routes from each of a plurality of origins to a plurality of destinations. Frequently-traveled routes are determined from the monitored location of the vehicle. The frequently-traveled routes are displayed to the user. Current traffic conditions may also be displayed on routes between the current location of the vehicle and potential destinations, which are determined based upon previous destinations, contacts, or calendar events.||08-22-2013|
|20130167056||SPACE AND TIME COGNITIVE MOBILITY SYSTEM WITH DISTRIBUTED AND COOPERATIVE INTELLIGENCE CAPABILITIES - A system enables the user to customize the temporal and/or spatial behaviour aspects of desired things with respect to one or more target platforms. The desired things include objects, actions, and media files and can be associated with a time (T-thing), a location (L-thing), a time and location (LT-thing), a platform (P-thing), and combinations thereof. The user can pick and assemble multiple things into meta-things and create meta things of various types. The target platforms include any devices or systems that can be programmed to perform behaviors. The user programs a set of rules, which are then used to specify the behavioral aspects exercised by the system on the target platforms. The user interacts with the system through a portal and/or a mobile application. The portal is an intuitive GUI that enables the user to program the system in a simple pick-drag-and-drop fashion.||06-27-2013|
|20130151588||VEHICLE TO DRIVER CHRONICLE SYSTEM - This vehicle monitoring and reporting system provides a platform for providing improved communication of information to the driver and/or vehicle owner (collectively “the user”). A user can create a customized report to be sent to the user. The report can indicate (among other things) driving behavior, such as average speed and maximum speed, vehicle health data and driving tips. The report can also include coupons or advertisements that are based upon location information and vehicle health data gathered from the data.||06-13-2013|
|20130081442||Method of Correcting the Orientation of a Freely Installed Accelerometer in a Vehicle - A vehicle monitoring system includes an accelerometer installed in the vehicle in an unknown orientation. The system infers the orientation of the accelerometer in the vehicle from the acceleration signals. The proposed method detects and corrects the orientation in two steps. In the first step, the gravity vector is used to estimate the orientation in the vertical plane. Then, based on the acceleration data collected during the vehicle movement, the heading of the vehicle is estimated and the orientation within the horizontal plane is corrected.||04-04-2013|
|20110307119||WEB PORTAL SYSTEM FOR MANAGING VEHICLE USAGE AND MOBILITY - A network including a web portal gathers, compiles and formats information on vehicle usage across a vehicle community. The vehicle community is comprised of a plurality of vehicles whose users and owners have joined the network and communicate through the web portal to allow gathering and accumulation of vehicle operation information for various uses including maintaining a record of vehicle operation and determining energy usage and environmental impact.||12-15-2011|
