U.S. Patents Awarded to Inventors in Ohio (Nov. 8)

(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Targeted News Service Targeted News Service ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 8 -- The following federal patents were awarded to inventors in Ohio.

*** Caterpillar Trimble Control Technologies Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 8 -- Caterpillar Trimble Control Technologies, Dayton, Ohio, has been assigned a patent (8,306,705) developed by Mark Edward Nichols, Christchurch, New Zealand, and Edward Wolf, Dayton, Ohio, for an earthmoving machine sensor.


The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "System and method for providing an excavation characteristic associated with an earthmoving machine. In one embodiment, a radio frequency identification (RFID) tag associated with an attachment mounted to an earthmoving machine may be identified. An optical benchmark signal may be detected, by an optical receiver. The position of the attachment relative to the earthmoving machine may be determined based, at least in part, on identification of the RFID tag. The position of the attachment may be provided to an operator of the earthmoving machine." The patent application was filed on April 11, 2008 (12/101,502). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,306,705&OS=8,306,705&RS=8,306,705 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.

*** Cardiac Pacemakers Assigned Patent for Method and Apparatus for Delivering Chronic and Post-ischemia Cardiac Therapies ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 8 -- Cardiac Pacemakers, St. Paul, Minn., has been assigned a patent (8,306,615) developed by six co-inventors for a "method and apparatus for delivering chronic and post-ischemia cardiac therapies." The co-inventors are Marina V. Brockway, Shoreview, Minn., Joseph M. Pastore, Concord, Ohio, Yi Zhang, Plymouth, Minn., Carlos Ricci, Apple Valley, Minn., Allan C. Shuros, St. Paul, Minn., and Rodney W. Salo, Fridley, Minn.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An implantable cardiac rhythm management (CRM) device delivers a chronic therapy while detecting an ischemic state. When the ischemic state indicates the occurrence of an ischemic event, the implantable CRM device delivers a post-ischemia therapy. The post-ischemia therapy and the chronic therapy are adjusted using feedback control with the ischemic state and parameters indicative of the effectiveness of the post-ischemic therapy and the effectiveness of the chronic therapy as inputs." The patent application was filed on Jan. 18, 2010 (12/689,016). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,306,615&OS=8,306,615&RS=8,306,615 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.

*** Cisco Technology Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 8 -- Cisco Technology, San Jose, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,306,027) developed by four co-inventors for a "method for multicast load balancing in wireless LANS." The co-inventors are Robert C. Meier, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, Stuart Norman, Don Mills, Canada, Douglas A. Smith, Stouffville, Canada, and Nancy Cam Winget, Mountain View, Calif.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method for multicast load balancing in a wireless network having a plurality of access points. The method includes setting a maximum Internet protocol multicast bandwidth for the access points, receiving an admissions control request from a client at one of the access points, and determining whether the admissions control request from the client is for an admitted or unadmitted multicast stream at the access point. The access point is responsive to the admissions control request for the admitted multicast stream by servicing the admitted multicast stream and to the admissions control request for the unadmitted multicast stream by servicing the unadmitted multicast stream where the bandwidth required for the unadmitted multicast stream, plus that portion of the access point bandwidth currently used for all existing downlink multicast streams, does not exceed the maximum internet protocol multicast bandwidth for the access point." The patent application was filed on Feb. 22, 2008 (12/035,581). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,06,027.PN.&OS=PN/83,06,027&RS=PN/83,06,027 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.

*** Cisco Technology Assigned Patent for Utilizing Persistent Interference Information for Radio Channel Selection ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 8 -- Cisco Technology, San Jose, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,305,971) developed by four co-inventors for a "utilizing persistent interference information for radio channel selection." The co-inventors are Igal Gutkin, Redwood City, Calif., Saurabh Bhasin, San Jose, Calif., Neil Robert Diener, Hudson, Ohio, and Sandeep Jay Shetty, San Jose, Calif.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "In an example embodiment, an apparatus selects radio channels based on persistent interference device information. The apparatus comprises a wireless transceiver operable to communicate over a plurality of channels and channel selection logic in communication with the wireless transceiver and operable to select a channel for the wireless transceiver. The channel selection logic is operable to acquire data representative of intensity, duration and rate of occurrence for at least one persistent interference device detected by the wireless transceiver operating on at least one of the plurality of channels. The channel selection logic is operable to select a channel for the wireless transceiver based on the data representative of intensity, duration and rate of occurrence for the at least one persistent interference device." The patent application was filed on Jan. 13, 2009 (12/352,684). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,05,971.PN.&OS=PN/83,05,971&RS=PN/83,05,971 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.
