Blackstone has been granted a patent for an apparatus that includes a database to store vehicle and secured space status parameters. The server-based processor determines whether to change the state of the vehicle based on these parameters. The system involves a telematics service provider server computer and an access control platform server computer that communicate and make decisions regarding the vehicle’s state.

A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11773815B2) describes a system for controlling the state of a vehicle based on vehicle and secured space status parameters. The system includes a telematics service provider server computer and an access control platform server computer, both external to the vehicle. These computers are configured to communicate the status parameters between them and determine whether to change the state of the vehicle. They can also send commands to the vehicle to initiate state changes.

The system allows for bidirectional communication between the access control platform server computer and the telematics service provider server computer. The access control platform server computer can communicate the secured space status parameter to the telematics service provider server computer, while the telematics service provider server computer can communicate the vehicle status parameter to the access control platform server computer. Based on these parameters, the system can determine whether to change the state of the vehicle and send a command to the vehicle accordingly.

The secured space status parameter can include various parameters related to a secured space, such as the state of a garage door. The vehicle status parameter can include parameters like the vehicle ignition state. The determination of whether to change the state of the vehicle can be based on a confidence algorithm, which outputs a probability value. The system can change the state of the vehicle when the probability value is within a predetermined range or equal to or greater than a threshold probability value.

The patent also describes a method of controlling the state of a vehicle using the system. The method involves receiving the secured space status parameter and the vehicle status parameter, determining whether to change the state of the vehicle based on these parameters, and communicating a command to the vehicle to initiate the state change.

Additionally, the patent includes a vehicle comprising a communication interface, an electronic control unit, and a processor. The communication interface can communicate with the telematics service provider server computer, and the processor can cause the communication interface to send the vehicle status parameter to the server computer. The processor can also change the state of the vehicle based on commands received from the server computer.

Overall, this patent describes a system, method, and vehicle for controlling the state of a vehicle based on various status parameters, allowing for remote control and monitoring of the vehicle's state.
