  • Patent number: 7689373
    Abstract: A system for collecting and analyzing vibration data is provided. The system includes: at least one sensor for sensing vibrations and producing an electrical signal corresponding to the sensed vibrations; a Universal Serial Bus (USB) communication device for receiving the electrical signal corresponding to the sensed vibrations from the at least one sensor and conditioning and sampling the electrical signal to produce a conditioned signal; and a data collector for receiving the conditioned signal and storing the conditioned signal in a data storage device.

  • Publication number: 20070096005
    Abstract: An interior rearview mirror assembly for vehicles incorporates a rearview mirror housing assembly having a polymeric rearview mirror housing and a reflective mirror element, a polymeric rearview mirror support, a polymeric rearview mirror mount, and first and second polymeric ball pivot members received in respective sockets allowing pivotal adjustment of the rearview mirror housing assembly. At least one electrical conductor connects an electrical accessory in the mirror housing assembly to the vehicle electrical system. The rearview mirror support includes a cable-way such that the presence of the electrical conductor as it passes through the ball pivot members and the cable-way is concealed from view while being protected therein even while the ball pivot members are pivoted for adjustment. The various polymeric elements of the assembly are preferably molded in the same color such as black, or alternately in at least two different colors.

  • Publication number: 20060164230
    Abstract: An interior rearview mirror assembly includes a display screen that is extendable and retractable relative to a casing. The display screen is movably mounted at the casing and movable or slidable in a direction generally parallel to a length axis of the reflective element between a non-use position, where the video display screen is positioned substantially within the casing, and a use position, where the video display screen is substantially extended from a side of the casing for viewing. The display screen may be automatically extended in response to an activating event.

  • Publication number: 20060139782
    Abstract: An interior rearview mirror system includes an interior rearview mirror assembly and a compass sensor having first and second magnetoresponsive sensing elements. A physical mount mounts the compass sensor at the rear of the reflective element whereby the compass sensor adjusts in tandem with adjustment of the reflective element by the driver of the vehicle. The physical mount is configured to at least partially offset the angle of the reflective element selected by the driver. A control receives a first signal indicative of a magnetic field sensed by the first magnetoresponsive sensing element and receives a second signal indicative of a magnetic field sensed by the second magnetoresponsive sensing element. The control determines a directional heading of the vehicle based on the first and second signals, and automatically compensates for a deviating magnetic field of the vehicle and generates a signal indicative of the directional heading of the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20060109996
    Abstract: A vehicle interior rearview mirror assembly (10) comprises an accessory (24), a reflective element (18) and a bezel (20). The mirror assembly may define portions of a pocket (23) that at least partially receives and secures the accessory therebetween when the reflective element is at least partially received in the bezel. The mirror assembly (110) may include a microphone (124) and an acoustic cover (126) positioned at least partially over one or more inlet ports (124j, 124k) of the microphone. The acoustic cover may include an outer air flow limiting layer (130b) that substantially limits air flow therethrough and a diffusing material (130a) that may space and support the outer layer from the inlet ports to substantially diffuse air flow that penetrates the outer layer. An acoustic barrier (132) may be positioned between a pair of inlet ports of the microphone to enhance the directivity of the microphone.

  • Publication number: 20020187687
    Abstract: An electrical contact assembly is provided that includes insolated blade and receptacle connector housings mateable with one another while moved from initial to final mating positions. A blade contact is provided with a support section that is securely mounted within the insulated connector housing. The blade contact further includes a contact knife projecting from the support section. A receptacle contact is provided having a base section that is securely mounted in the insulated receptacle housing. The receptacle contact includes at least one contact spring projecting from the base section. The blade and receptacle contacts are joined in a mating operation while moved from initial to final mating positions. Blade and receptacle mating zones are defined on the blade and receptacle contacts respectively. The mating zones electrically engage one another when in the final mating position to maintain a primary electrical interface between the blade and receptacle contacts.

A blade contact is provided with a support section that is securely mounted within the insulated connector housing. The blade contact further includes a contact knife projecting from the support section. A receptacle contact is provided having a base section that is securely mounted in the insulated receptacle housing. Arcing zones are defined on the blade and receptacle contacts that are located separate and apart from mating zones. The arcing zones electrically engage one another only when the blade and receptacle contacts are located in the initial mating position to provide a temporary electrical interface for discharging arcs between the blade and receptacle contacts. After which, the arcing zones disengage one another.
