A method and apparatus for controlling the operation of a vehicle using a predictive control system. The technology includes predicting a characteristic of a portion of a road and defining a cost function based on a plurality of vehicle parameters and the predicted road characteristic. Engine torque and engine brake torque commands and vehicle set speed are calculated, and a gear shifting command is determined. The system may include a Kalman filter for estimating vehicle mass and road grade when measurements of a navigation sensor and data from a three dimensional map are unavailable, and a Kalman filter for estimating vehicle mass, aerodynamic drag, and rolling resistance when the navigation sensor measurements and map data are available. The engine torque, engine brake torque, and gear shifting commands are adjusted based on the predicted road characteristic to follow the calculated vehicle set speed to minimize the defined cost function.

Time series data is identified that is related to a predetermined characteristic and the predetermined characteristic being at least one of an identity of a sensor or a time range. Based upon the identified time series data, the time series data is moved to selected ones of the plurality of separate data storage devices, and the movement is temporary for processing purposes. In parallel, queries are performed on the time series data on each of the selected ones of the plurality of separate data storage devices to obtain a plurality of results. The plurality of results are aggregated.

The presently disclosed and/or claimed inventive concept(s) relates generally to the use of nonionic hydrophobically modified polysaccharides in personal care and household care compositions. More specifically, but not by way of limitation, the presently disclosed and/or claimed inventive concept(s) relates to the use of hydrophobically-modified cellulose ethers, such as hydrophobically-modified hydroxyethylcellulose (HMHEC) polymers in personal care and household care compositions. These compositions show pronounced syneresis in aqueous solutions or in the presence of surfactants, including nonionic surfactants and anionic surfactants such as lauryl sulfate (LS) and lauryl ether sulfate (LES). It is also contemplated that the surfactants used in the compositions be sulfate free and/or multi-tailed.

||PCT/US2013/033333||HALLIBURTON ENERGY SERVICES, INC.||GLEITMAN, Daniel, D.|
A method of testing mechanical properties of an earth formation can include disposing a probe in a wellbore, impacting the probe against a wall of the wellbore, and measuring a parameter related to at least one of a displacement, displacement rate, strain, and strain rate, of at least one of the probe and the formation. Another method can include disposing a probe and a known material in a wellbore, and after the disposing, penetrating the known material with the probe. Another method can include disposing a probe in a wellbore, measuring a displacement of the probe into a wall of the wellbore while measuring a load applied to the probe, and applying fluid pressure to the formation via the probe.

||WO||WO/2014/149062 - METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CONFIGURING DEMODULATION REFERENCE SIGNAL IN LTE-ADVANCED NETWORKS||25.09.2014||
||PCT/US2013/033594||HITACHI, LTD.||GAO, Long|
Example implementations described herein are directed to systems and methods of using the Demodulation Reference Signal (DMRS) in a manner to reduce the DMRS overhead in the Long Term Evolution (LTE)-Advanced downlink. In example implementations, an enhanced node B (eNodeB) transmits the DMRS only in some of the Resource Blocks (RBs) that are scheduled for a User Equipment (UE). The frequency of which the DMRS is transmitted is determined by the eNodeB based on one or more attributes of the UE and signaled to the UE via Radio Resource Control (RRC) signaling. At the UE receiver, the Physical Downlink Shared Channel (PDSCH) is demodulated based on the received DMRS configuration. Example implementations can thereby reduce the DMRS overhead by avoiding DMRS transmission in some subframes.
