  • Patent number: 11453270
    Abstract: A vehicle air vent includes a primary vane system pivotal about a horizontal axis to direct an air flow from an outlet of the vehicle air vent in an up/down direction and including a primary vane, a secondary vane system pivotal about a vertical axis to direct an air flow from an outlet of the vehicle air vent in a side-to-side direction and including a secondary vane, and an air flow volume control system including a control knob movable in a fore/aft direction for adjusting the volume of air flow through the air vent.

  • Publication number: 20220237412
    Abstract: A method for modelling a shape of data in a GAN comprising a generator agent (G) for generating synthetic data (110, 220) and a discriminator agent (D) for distinguishing between the generated synthetic data (120, 220) and real original data (110) that follow an arbitrary, continuous or discrete, distribution defined by a n-dimensional vector of input variables xi. The method, before generating output synthetic data (220), computes an Inverse Smirnov transformation fSi?1 for each of the n input variables xi and attaches an activation function (200) to the generator agent (G), wherein the activation function (200) is a n-dimensional vector faG formed by the computed Inverse Smirnov transformations, faG=(fS1?1, fS2?1, . . . , fSn?1). The GAN implementing the method generates the output synthetic data (220) using the activation function (200) which outputs synthetic data (220) with a distribution (420, 420?) whose shape is the same as the arbitraty distribution of the original data (110).

  • Patent number: 11338649
    Abstract: A vehicle air vent includes a volume control door pivotally mounted in a housing, a primary vane pivotally mounted in the housing to direct an air flow from an outlet of the vehicle air vent in an up/down direction, and a roller knob mounted on the primary vane and connected to the volume control door such that a rotation of the roller knob causes a rotation of the volume control door.

  • Patent number: 11299015
    Abstract: A vehicle air vent includes a primary vane system pivotal about a horizontal axis to direct an airflow from an outlet of the vehicle air vent in an up/down direction, a secondary vane system pivotal about a vertical axis to direct an airflow from an outlet of the vehicle air vent in a side-to-side direction. A primary vane of the primary vane system is co-located along an airflow path through the vehicle air vent with a secondary vane of the secondary vane system. The vehicle air vent further includes an airflow volume control system adapted to adjust the volume of airflow through the vehicle air vent, and a joystick controller adapted to independently operate the primary vane system, the secondary vane system, and the airflow volume control system.
