  • Publication number: 20200166262
    Abstract: A household refrigeration apparatus has an interior container with a first wall and with a second wall arranged angled thereto. The interior container bounds a first receiving space for food of the household refrigeration apparatus. An ice maker has a housing formed by a wall area of the first wall of the interior container and a wall area of the second wall of the interior container in certain areas. The wall area of the first wall is formed with a wall step with a protrusion, which protrudes into the receiving space of the ice maker, wherein the protrusion is formed as a condensation water drip bar.

  • Publication number: 20200164871
    Abstract: The invention relates to a lane change assistance system in a vehicle (21), wherein the lane change assistance system has a sensor arrangement for detecting the current surrounding area of the vehicle in each case and is designed to generate a warning signal and/or steering intervention when an imminent lane change by the vehicle is identified, depending on a second vehicle (25) being detected by the sensor arrangement in the vehicle's surrounding area. In this case the lane change assistance system is designed to suppress generation of the warning signal and/or the steering intervention based on map data (15), particularly when the change of lane by the vehicle is to a newly opening lane (23) of a multiple lane road (22) which is branching off (e.g. of a corresponding motorway exit) and the second vehicle is located in another lane (24) of the road (22) which is branching off.

  • Patent number: 10235887
    Abstract: The invention relates to a control system which is equipped and designed for use in a motor vehicle, to determine, on the basis of environment data obtained by one or several environment sensors present on the motor vehicle, a point in time as of which a safe lane change from a fast lane to an adjoining slower lane is possible. The environment sensors are designed to provide environment data representing the area laterally ahead of, laterally next to and/or laterally behind the vehicle to an electronic control unit of the control system. The control system is at least equipped and designed to determine, during a predefined interval or continuously, in the electronic control unit driving data representing the driving situation of one's own motor vehicle from sensors present in one's own motor vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20180111617
    Abstract: The invention relates to a control method for establishing in a motor vehicle, on the basis of environment data obtained by one or more environment sensors present on the motor vehicle, that, white an ACC system is active in one's own motor vehicle, another motor vehicle, which is moving relative to one's own motor vehicle in a neighboring lane, has a tendency to change to the lane of one's own motor vehicle. The environment sensor are designed to provide environment data representing the area laterally ahead of, laterally next to and/or laterally behind one's own vehicle.

  • Patent number: 7033772
    Abstract: A family of fatty acid transport proteins (FATPs) mediate transport of long chain fatty acids (LCFAs) across cell membranes into cells. These proteins exhibit different expression patterns among the organs of mammals. Nucleic acids encoding FATPs of this family, vectors comprising these nucleic acids, as well as the production of FATP proteins in host cells are described. Also described are methods to test FATPs for fatty acid transport function, and methods to identify inhibitors or enhancers of transport function. The altering of LCFA uptake by administering to the mammal an inhibitor or enhancer of FATP transport function of a FATP in the small intestine can decrease or increase calories available as fats, and can decrease or increase circulating fatty acids. The organ specificity of FATP distribution can be exploited in methods to direct drugs, diagnostic indicators and so forth to an organ such as the heart.
