Patent Summary

U.S. Patent Classes & Classifications Covered in this listing:

Class 340: Communications: Electrical

Communications - the handling of information or intelligence, restricted to the conveying of said information or intelligence between geographically spaced points. Information or intelligence is defined as being, matter which is handled by signaling systems or signaling devices (such as telegraph systems) or by that portion of nonsignaling systems or nonsignaling devices (such as power supply systems) which is designated in the arts as having a control function (such as the supervisory circuits which control the circuit breakers of an electric power network). Handling, as used above, is defined as being the active coaction between the tangible communication system or device and the intangible information or intelligence, and such coaction may assume various forms, such as transmission, storage, exhibiting, etc.

Subclass 438: Internal alarm or indicator responsive to a condition of the vehicle
Subclass 439: Operation efficiency (e.g., engine performance, driver habits)
Subclass 576: Drive capability

Class 701: Data Processing:Vehicles, Navigation, And Relative Location

This class provides for electrical computers, digital data processing systems, and data processing processes for transferring data between computers or processes wherein the computers or processes employ the data before or after transferring and the employing affects the transfer of data therebetween. This class is for electricalapparatus and corresponding methods for performing data processing operations in which there is a significant change in the data or for performing calculation operations wherein the electrical data processing system or calculating computer functions to indicate a condition of a vehicle, to regulate the movement of a vehicle, to monitor the operation of a vehicle, or to solve a diagnostic problem with the vehicle. It also provides electrical apparatus and corresponding methods wherein the electrical data processing system or calculating computer function to determine the course, position, or distance traveled. It further provides electrical apparatus and corresponding methods wherein the electrical data processing system or calculating computer functions to determine the relative location of an object (e.g., person or vehicle) and may include communication of the determined relative location to a remote location. In this class there are three main divisions: 1. vehicle control, guidance, operation or indication; 2. navigation; 3. relative location

Subclass 42: Feedback, transfer function or proportional and derivative (P& D) control

Class 180: Motor Vehicles

The propulsion of land vehicles by a motor carried on the vehicle and to the following subject matter, which may be considered as incidental to such propulsion: 1. The mounting of a motor on a land vehicle. 2. Transmission mechanism in connection with specific vehicle structure. 3. Power steering-gear for land vehicles. 4. Power means for raising a frame or body relative to a wheel or wheels. 5. Devices not of general application for utilizing the power of the power plant of a land vehicle to drive other machines. 6. Controlling devices in connection with land vehicle structure. 7. Gyroscopes in connection with land vehicle structure. 8. Safety devices involving a feature limited to use on motor vehicles. 9. Motor Vehicles provided with wheel substitutes.

Subclass 421: With condition modulated steering

Class 455: Telecommunications

This is the generic class for modulated carrier wave communications not elsewhere classifiable.

Subclass 414.1: Special service
Subclass 418: Programming control
