  • Patent number: 10770736
    Abstract: Structures and methods are disclosed for removing water, and particularly for preventing ice blockages, in solid polymer electrolyte fuel cells comprising reactant vias that fluidly connect a reactant transition region to a reactant port. Water can be removed from the reactant via by making its surface superhydrophobic while incorporating at least one additional via with a hydrophilic surface in parallel therewith.

  • Patent number: 10766497
    Abstract: A method for deactivating an automated driving function of a vehicle, in particular a highly automated or autonomous driving function, is provided. The driving function is deactivated when a driver of the vehicle carries out a steering intervention or pedal intervention with a strength exceeding a predeterminable deactivation threshold. The deactivation threshold is predetermined depending on an operation length of the driving function and/or depending on a responsiveness of the driver. In particular, the deactivation threshold is predetermined in such a manner that it is higher directly after an activation of the driving function than some time afterwards and/or it is higher with a low responsiveness of the driver than with a high responsiveness of the driver.

  • Patent number: 10760653
    Abstract: A transmission device for a motor vehicle includes a final drive and a planetary gearset. The planetary gearset has a first transmission element formed by a first ring gear, which first transmission element has external teeth for introducing a drive torque, at least one second transmission element and at least one third transmission element, which is coupled to the final drive. The device also has a brake element for lockingly braking at least one of the transmission elements of the planetary gearset. The final drive is a planetary differential, which is arranged radially inside the planetary gearset and is arranged in a gearwheel level with the planetary gearset.

  • Publication number: 20200269174
    Abstract: A connection arrangement for fixing a lid to a filter housing and to a filter element, by which an insertion opening in the filter housing can be closed, includes a holding element on the filter element and a locking element on the lid. The holding element can be fixed by a contact surface for contacting the locking element in a recess of the filter housing. The holding element has a latching geometry with which it can be latched in the recess of the filter housing. The locking element is a shaft with a bolt rod and a handle part. The shaft is guided through the lid such that the lid and the filter element in the latching position can, by the bolt rod and a contact surface formed as a ramp on the holding element, which engage with one another by turning the locking element, be spanned against each other.

  • Patent number: 10756370
    Abstract: A method for power control of a fuel cell system in a vehicle is disclosed. The requested fuel cell system power by the vehicle is converted into a power request made of the fuel cell by an expected power of auxiliary drives of the fuel cell system at the requested fuel cell system power being added to the requested fuel cell system power. A media supply of the fuel cell which corresponds to the power request made of the fuel cell is requested. The electrical loading of the fuel cell with current is performed in accordance with a model of the cathode dynamics such that a control variable of the control operation is matched to the media dynamics, and the power release is performed such that the fuel cell is loaded only when the adequate media supply is ensured.

  • Publication number: 20200256283
    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 chamberto 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.
