METHODS OF TRANSFER OF ATLIS EQUIPMENT AND TECHNOLOGY HEALTH DATA FOR REMOTE-NON-CONNECTED SITES

In the event that an ATLIS technology equipment does not have an internet connection or cloud service connection. Health data is then grabbed by ATLIS vehicle, equipment, or other solution which happens to connect within range of the ATLIS equipment. Data is then uploaded to cloud services when ATLIS vehicle, equipment, or other technology solution connects with cloud services.

ATLIS equipment can emit a beacon service request for other ATLIS vehicle, equipment, or technology solution to connect even when charging connection has not occurred. Data connection is authenticated and secured.

METHODS OF TRANSFER OF FIRMWARE UPDATES TO NON-CONNECTED ATLIS DEVICES AND VEHICLES

In the event that an ATLIS Technology device or vehicle is not directly connected, or in a location which cannot support a connection to ATLIS cloud services. Other ATLIS vehicle systems will carry firmware solutions to projected remote locations and transfer firmware to ATLIS devices and vehicles. This process will happen without user intervention. The process of downloading firmware will occur by integrating projected travel data from mapping systems or prior travel data and probability assessments of a vehicle or device traveling within range of a non-connected device or vehicle.

METHODS OF ASSESSING PROBABILITY OF SUCCESSFUL DATA TRANSFER BETWEEN ATLIS DEVICE OR VEHICLE SYSTEM

To successfully transfer data to remote devices and vehicles which are not connected to the ATLIS ecosystem directly. The device or vehicle which carries the firmware must properly calculate the probability of a successful transfer of data when the possibility of moving away from the remotely connected vehicle occurs.

The vehicle will utilize a set of proximity, connection stability, personal calendar data, GPS travel data, and vehicle speed to determine if data can be transferred effectively.

METHODS OF SEGMENTING DATA TRANSFER TO AND FROM

NON-CONNECTED ATLIS DEVICES AND VEHICLES

To successfully transfer data to remote devices and vehicles which are not connected to the ATLIS Ecosystem directly. The device or vehicle which carriers the firmware must transfer the data in segmented solutions. If in the even that not all data is transferred, when a new device or vehicle begins transferring the data to the remote device or vehicle, the new data does not start over, but continues the transfer where the prior data ended.

This data is then compiled and authenticated as the completed package. Once authenticated, the data is then used as appropriately intended.

SYSTEMS AND METHODS OF AUTO-ALIGNMENT OF STEERING SYSTEMS

The vehicle steering system requires a constant auto-alignment calibration to ensure proper operation between the driver and the vehicle. The auto-alignment and calibration must be maintained when the vehicle system is powered and loses power. In the event of a loss of power, the vehicle system should be capable of performing an auto-alignment to ensure continued operation of the vehicle can be done safely.

The system utilizes a center reference point gathered through a magnetic sensor and magnet. As said magnet crosses the sensor location a sine wave response is detected and the system establishes center based on peak of sign page signal.

The system utilizes a center reference point gathered through a magnetic sensor and a magnet. As the magnet crosses the location a trapezoidal shaped signal is detected. The system uses an algorithm to establish the theoretical center point of the trapezoidal signal to establish the center point of the system. This system utilizes the speed of travel of the motor as well as a fixed width of the magnet hardware to determine center. If speed of travel is not available, then the fixed hardware width is used to estimate speed and establish center point.

SYSTEMS AND METHODS OF AUTO-CALIBRATION OF BRAKING SYSTEMS TO ACCOMODATE FOR WEAR IN THE VEHICLE FUNCTION

The vehicle braking system uses a combination of linear position and pressure sensors to establish a point at which the friction brake pads are engaging with the rotor. The vehicle stores this data and leverages this to establish a current wear level of the brake system.

The vehicle braking system then utilizes this data to preposition the linear actuation system which is connected to the master cylinder, utilizes to move hydraulic fluid to engage the braking system, and positions the friction brakes at such a point where the engagement time is minimized.

The vehicle braking system utilizes the position and pressure data to position the friction brake pads in a position to minimize rolling resistance losses due to friction brake pads dragging on the rotor during normal driving behavior.

When a vehicle that has accepted connectivity on the ATLIS ecosystem approaches the charging station. The charging station passes this transactional information to said vehicle, which then passes the information to cloud services when available. Once passed to cloud services, the final transaction to said credit card service is made.

Alternative approach, the vehicle allows you to enter credit card information, this information is then connected to cloud services and a transaction occurs through cloud services, from the vehicle.
