  • Patent number: 11131229
    Abstract: A method for producing a honeycomb body for a catalytic converter for treating exhaust gases, the honeycomb body having a plurality of flow ducts, through which gas flows from an inlet end to an outlet end. The honeycomb body is formed from a plurality of metal layers lying one on top of the other. The honeycomb body is produced by forming corrugated sections in a metal strip, wherein the corrugated sections follow one another directly or are spaced apart by smooth sections, creating a pre-bend of the metal strip in the end region of each section, folding the individual sections of the metal strip onto one another to create a layer stack, wherein the individual sections are alternately folded onto one another in opposite directions, inserting the layer stack in a housing, and joining the layer stack to the housing in contact regions between the layer stack and the housing.

  • Patent number: 10852261
    Abstract: A sensor and method for measuring respiratory gas properties are presented. A thermal conductivity sensor is used to measure the thermal conductivity of a gas with unknown composition and/or mass flow rate at different temperatures. The measured thermal conductivities at different temperatures are compared with known thermal conductivities of gases at different temperatures. In an exemplary application the sensor and method are installed in a tube to determine a mass of respiratory air flowing through the tube and a concentration of CO2 therein.

  • Patent number: 10809354
    Abstract: The intended position and/or an intended alignment of at least one sensor for monitoring traffic at a traffic route is determined easily, quickly and reliably with the aid of computer technology. The methodology employed involves identification of a traffic route to be monitored in a data processing device, and requesting and providing data about the traffic route from a database. From this, at least one possible target position and/or target orientation is determined from the provided data. The methodology avoids the need to manually enter lanes and other local conditions of the traffic route. Instead, the data processing device recalls the required traffic data from a database, and based on manipulation of a graphical representation of the sensor by the user with the aid of the provided data and specified sensor characteristics an intended position and/or intended alignment of a sensor can be visualized and stored for later use during installation.
