  • Publication number: 20170144663
    Abstract: A cruise control arrangement is provided with a cruise control speed function and where the cruise control arrangement is provided with a set cruise speed value and a set brake cruise speed value, and where the cruise control brake function is active when the vehicle travels downhill, where the cruise control arrangement is adapted to activate at least one auxiliary brake when the vehicle speed reaches the set brake cruise speed, to apply a service brake of the vehicle in order to reduce the speed of the Vehicle to a predefined first speed if the vehicle speed exceeds the set brake cruise speed when the least one auxiliary brake is delivering full brake power, where the predefined first speed is lower than the set brake cruise speed. Undesired acceleration during downhill travel can be avoided when the brake power of the auxiliary brake is not sufficient. Further, a required downshift can be delayed, which will improve the fuel consumption of the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20170129467
    Abstract: A cruise control arrangement for a vehicle is provided with a cruise control brake function that is set to a brake cruise speed. The cruise control arrangement is adapted to activate at least one auxiliary brake when the vehicle speed reaches the set brake cruise speed, and at the same time to apply a service brake of the vehicle to keep the speed of the vehicle at the set brake cruise speed, and is further adapted to decrease the brake power of the service brake at the same time as the brake power of the at least one auxiliary brake increases, such that the speed of the vehicle is kept at the set brake cruise speed. The speed of the vehicle can be held at the set cruise speed when an auxiliary brake is activated, regardless of the activation time of the auxiliary brake. In this way, an overshoot in speed can be avoided during the activation time of the auxiliary brake.

  • Publication number: 20170110021
    Abstract: A vehicle driver feedback system includes a control unit and a display unit. The control unit is arranged for registering a driver-influenced vehicle driving parameter and the display unit is positioned in the vehicle and arranged for displaying information to the vehicle driver. The control unit further is arranged for: iteratively calculating and storing at least one score value based on the at least one driver-influenced vehicle driving parameter, wherein the at least one score value reflects a magnitude of driver-induced energy waste; driver-induced fuel waste; driver-induced vehicle wear; unsafe driving; or a weighted combination of at least two thereof, and displaying on the display unit during driving of the vehicle a graphical score value development over time or relative to the travelled route as feedback to the vehicle driver.

  • Patent number: 9534623
    Abstract: A joint for assembling two furniture parts to each other. A first furniture part has a male part for co-operation with a female part of a second furniture part. Each of the male and female parts has a number of grooves. At assembly the male part is moved along the female part via co-operation between the grooves of the male and female part, respectively. The co-operating male and female parts have an insertion position and an end position, in which end position the furniture parts are assembled to each other. The grooves of one of the female and male parts are compressed during movement from the insertion position to the end position. The grooves of the pair of co-operating female part and male part are such that the furniture parts are pressed toward each other when the male part is moved along the female part.

  • Patent number: 9420390
    Abstract: A harmonic echo power estimator estimates power of echo generated by harmonic loudspeaker nonlinearities in a user equipment having an echo path between a loudspeaker input and a microphone output. The estimator includes a frequency band mapper that maps each frequency band in a set of loudspeaker output signal frequency bands into a corresponding array of loudspeaker input signal frequency bands, where each frequency band in the set is mapped into several frequency bands in the corresponding array. A power estimator determines a power estimate of each input signal in each array of frequency bands. A power estimate combiner combines determined power estimates in each array of frequency bands into a corresponding estimate of loudspeaker input power generating harmonic loudspeaker nonlinearities. A power estimate transformer transforms the estimates of loudspeaker input power across the echo path into power estimates of the echo generated by the harmonic loudspeaker nonlinearities.

  • Publication number: 20160229400
    Abstract: A method is provided for adapting the starting gear of an automated manual transmission in a heavy vehicle, where a pre-selected starting gear is selected by a transmission control unit depending on vehicle parameters of the heavy vehicle, where the starting gear is lowered from the pre-selected starting gear depending on a movement behaviour of a vehicle in front of the heavy vehicle. The pre-selected starting gear can be adapted to the traffic in front of the vehicle, which makes it possible to avoid unnecessary gear changes and which allows for a smooth starting cycle of the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 9264804
    Abstract: A method for suppressing noise of a first signal captured via a primary microphone is provided. A primary and a reference microphone are arranged on a communication device to capture noise and intermittent speech. A determination is made whether the first signal comprises non-stationary signal components or substantially stationary noise, and whether the first signal comprises substantially far-field noise in case it was determined that it comprises non-stationary signal components. A noise power spectrum estimate of the first signal is updated with a stationary noise power spectrum estimate if the first signal is considered to comprise substantially stationary noise or a far-field noise power spectrum estimate if the first signal is considered to comprise substantially far-field noise. A frequency response is computed on the basis of the estimated noise power spectrum. Noise from the first signal is suppressed by applying the frequency response on the first signal.
