  • Patent number: 11352914
    Abstract: A valve train of an internal combustion engine of a motor vehicle includes a rocker arm assigned to a first combustion chamber of the internal combustion engine where via the rocker arm a gas exchange valve assigned to the first combustion chamber is actuatable. An actuating device is assigned to a second combustion chamber of the internal combustion engine where via the actuating device, by supplying the actuating device with a hydraulic fluid, the second combustion chamber is switchable between a firing mode for fired operation and a braking mode for an engine braking operation of the internal combustion engine. A supply of the hydraulic fluid to the actuating device assigned to the second combustion chamber is adjustable by the rocker arm assigned to the first combustion chamber.

  • Patent number: 11352982
    Abstract: A feed and ignition device for a gas engine has an injector for the direct blowing-in of a combustion gas into a combustion chamber of the gas engine. The device also has a pre-combustion chamber into which a fuel can be introduced and a plurality of overflow openings distributed in the peripheral direction of the injector over the periphery of the feed and ignition device via which the pre-combustion chamber can be directly connected fluidically to the combustion chamber. A spark ignition device ignites a fuel-air mixture including at least the fuel introduced into the pre-combustion chamber. The pre-combustion chamber, the overflow openings, and the spark ignition device are formed by a first structural unit and the injector is formed by a second structural unit formed separately from the first structural unit.

  • Patent number: 11346294
    Abstract: In a method for operating an internal combustion engine of a motor vehicle, exhaust gas from the internal combustion engine is fed to a particulate filter of the motor vehicle. Until a predetermined filtration rate of the particulate filter is reached, a temporary interruption of a fuel supply to the internal combustion engine is prevented in an overrun mode of the motor vehicle if a temperature of the exhaust gas in the particulate filter is greater than a predetermined threshold value of the temperature. An arrangement of the particulate filter in an exhaust system of the motor vehicle is also described.

  • Patent number: 11325543
    Abstract: A cover device for a side sill of a passenger vehicle has a sill cover which includes first and second cover elements which are arranged in a length region of the side sill below a door opening and are coupled moveably to one another and a drive unit via which the cover elements are jointly displaceable between a first functional position and a second functional position. The first cover element is pivotable about a first axis and the second cover element is displaceable about a second axis. The second cover element is mounted so as to pivot about the second axis by a bearing device on the first cover element. The displacement movement of the second cover element relative to the first cover element is positively controlled by a slotted link.

  • Patent number: 11312318
    Abstract: A cladding device of a side sill of a passenger vehicle includes an inherently rigid outer cladding element arranged in a longitudinal region of the side sill below a door opening which can be displaced between a cladding position and a release position. A flexible cladding element is provided, one end of which is arranged on the inherently rigid outer cladding element, which can be displaced with the inherently rigid outer cladding element during a displacement movement between the cladding position and the release position. The flexible cladding element is arranged in a region of the side sill covered by a vehicle door associated with the door opening when the inherently rigid outer cladding element is arranged in the cladding position. In the cladding position, a gap is covered between the end of the inherently rigid outer cladding element, which has the flexible cladding element, and another component.

  • Patent number: 11305688
    Abstract: A method for visualizing a crossing over a road for a road user wanting to cross the road. At least one vehicle driving on the road stops and projects an image pattern onto the road for the road user crossing the road. The vehicle projecting the image pattern communicates with another vehicle driving on the road. The first vehicle projecting the image pattern on a first lane informs the other vehicle in at least one further lane at least indirectly about the road user wanting to cross the road and the image pattern which is projected or still to be projected, and it requests the other vehicle to stop and for its part to project an image pattern onto its lane in addition to the image pattern of the first vehicle or at least indirectly reports back to the first vehicle that it should also take over the projection on its lane.
