Abstract: A driver information feedback and display system is disclosed. The architecture of the system includes a controller (30), a channel/window manager (10), and front and rear image capture units (11-13). The system can be further incorporated with a speed recorder (40), a backing sensor (50), or a GPS unit (60). When a vehicle enters an intersection from a narrow alley, the left and right image capture units (11,12) installed at the nose of the vehicle will be activated for scanning road conditions on the main road in both directions, thereby eliminating the need for the driver to strain to see the traffic situation or pulling out the car half way. The speed recorder (40) can be used for detection of low speed and activation of left and right image capture units (11, 12). The present system can effectively minimize the chance of vehicle collisions.

Each strengthening block (40) is non-hollow to provide an anti-crack efficiency to joints connected to the legs. Additionally, a cone-shaped post is clamped between one strengthening block (40) and one corresponding leg to adjust a total height of the ball chair.
Abstract: The present invention has multiple AV/S terminals, an RF modulator, a S/AV signal converter and multiple switches. The switches connect the AV/S terminals with the RF outputs to allow the AV/S signal from the special AV/S terminal input into the RF modulator to be converted to an RF-signal input to the ANT terminal of the TV. Besides, the present invention further has an ANT input with an electronic switch and a detecting unit having a driver, which decides whether the electronic switch turns on. If the detecting unit detects no AV-signal or S-signal input from the AV/S terminals, the detecting unit first cuts off the power to the RF modulator and then makes the electronic switch turn on. The RF-signal from the ANT input is output to the RF output.
Abstract: A light emitting diode device comprises a copper substrate having multiple light emitting regions, multiple dies and encapsulation. Each light emitting region has a die pad and at least one electrode connected together and encapsulant covering the light emitting region. The dies are respectively mounted on the die pads and are wire bonded to the corresponding electrode or electrodes. A step defining a gap is applied to the substrate to form multiple light emitting regions, and each light emitting region has a die pad and electrodes. Therefore, the present invention can simplify the steps for fabricating die pad and electrodes to increase the production rate of LED devices or LED display modules.
