  • Patent number: 8316313
    Abstract: A selector shape may serve as the background to a configurable composite shape and may include one or more expressions that are evaluated to select between several composite shape definitions via links to the definition. Each selector shape includes an animation expression and a lookup table converter to select an identifier of the composite definition to be loaded and displayed. When the value of the animation expression changes, the value may be matched to the name of a new composite definition using the lookup table, and the new definition may be displayed. The previously-used composite definition may then be marked for removal by a caching system, and removed. These selector shapes also enable the same graphic element to be used in displays designed for different types of display devices, such as display devices having large display screens, standard computer screens and very small display screens.

  • Patent number: 8312590
    Abstract: Embodiments of a switched reluctance (SR) motor for use in a integrated vacuum system for a vehicle are disclosed. The SR motor may receive input voltage directly from an electrical storage device used to start up an engine of the vehicle. The SR motor may include an encoder that triggers an optical sensor to provide signals to a motor controller. The motor controller may energize stator poles based on the received signals. The encoder may be mechanically phase-advanced with respect to poles of the rotor to ensure proper start-up of the SR motor. Commutations of the motor may occur before a point of maximum inductance where the rotor and stator are aligned. In a preferred embodiment, the input voltage received by the SR motor is in a range of 9-16 Volts DC, a maximum drawn current is 36 amps, and the phase advance is between 9-11 degrees.

  • Patent number: 8314682
    Abstract: The invention concerns a biometric system provided with a set of reference biometric data (B?i) resulting from the application of a disjunction between a first set of biometric data (Bi) and a first encoded key (Ki), and from an information concerning the first key. A second set of biometric data (B2) is obtained. A second encoded key is determined by using a disjunction between the set of reference biometric data and the second set of biometric data. The second key is decoded by iterative decoding. Then, it is determined whether the first and second sets of biometric data mutually correspond by comparing the information concerning the first key with the second key.

  • Patent number: 8314381
    Abstract: A reflector for a time-of-flight mass spectrometer for reflecting ionized atoms and/or molecules, with an entry opening and with an arrangement of successively arranged ring electrodes extending away from the entry opening along a longitudinal axis of the reflector is illustrated and described, as is a time-of-flight mass spectrometer. The object of providing a reflector for a time-of-flight mass spectrometer or providing such a mass spectrometer, with improved mass resolution at a high detection probability, is achieved by virtue of the fact that the ring electrode closest to the entry opening serves as a correction electrode and is at an opposite electric potential compared to the other ring electrodes, that a screening electrode is provided on the side of the entry opening facing away from the ring electrodes and that the screening electrode lies at a potential that differs from that of the ring electrodes, more preferably at earth potential.

  • Patent number: 8312591
    Abstract: A new wall-mountable vacuum cleaner and bracket combination provides easy locking. Both the vacuum cleaner and the bracket have mounting rims. When the vacuum cleaner is on the bracket, a support surface on a proximal end of one of the two mounting rims engages a terminal edge of the other of the two mounting rims. The vacuum cleaner can be secured in place by moving a movable arm from an extended position to a retracted position in which the vacuum cleaner is locked in place. To accommodate the required movement of the movable arm, the bracket has a deflectable locking edge that moves between a rest position and a deflected position.
