    Abstract: A computer system includes at least one processor, a first mass memory and a second mass memory. The computer system implements a master operating system core, a first operating system core and at least one second operating system core on the processor under control of the master operating system core. The memory controller provides the master operating system core with defined areas of a mass storage medium as a first mass memory and at least one second mass memory, each independent of one another, and controls mapping of the first mass memory and of the at least one second mass memory to the defined areas of the mass storage medium. The master operating system core allows the first operating system core and the at least one second operating system core to have exclusive access to at least one of the mass memories.

  • Patent number: 9863358
    Abstract: A method for operating a common-rail system of a motor vehicle that includes a common-rail-pressure sensor configuration having at least two signal paths, and that can be operated at a maximally permissible common-rail pressure and at a minimally permissible common-rail pressure. Sensor signals are read out in each case in response to a pressure measurement in a common rail of the common-rail system via the at least two signal paths, and a signal deviation value is ascertained that characterizes a deviation between the pressure values that are each determined on the basis of the sensor signals. The method includes reducing the maximally permissible common-rail pressure by a correction value to a maximally permissible emergency common-rail pressure and/or increasing the minimally permissible common-rail pressure by a correction value to a minimally permissible emergency common-rail pressure in response to the signal deviation value exceeding a predefined value.

  • Patent number: 9597259
    Abstract: A storage or infusion bottle (1) has an integrally molded bottle neck (3) with a teat-shaped bottle feature (4, 5) projecting from its mouth end. The closed teat end wall (6, 7) of the bottle feature is puncturable by an infusion needle. A cap (8) is attachable to the bottle neck (3) and has a funnel-shaped cap feature (9, 10) with an interior space accommodating the free end region of the bottle feature (4, 5). The intermediate space between the end wall of the bottle feature (4, 5) and the opposing side of the cap feature (9, 10) is completely filled by a hat-shaped sealing element (11, 12) enclosing the bottle feature (4, 5) at least in its end region remote from the bottle (1).

  • Patent number: 9436656
    Abstract: A method for systematically handling errors, and an assemblage for carrying out the method, are presented. The method serves for systematically handing errors for a goniometer in the context of the transfer of position data with a position transducer, the position transducer possessing markings that are sensed with at least one sensor; a profile being deposited in a memory region in connection with said markings; the position transducer generating as a function of its position, by way of the markings, position signals that carry, as data, parameters that are deposited into a further memory region beginning with an address pointer value of 0; said address pointer being incremented with each position signal; and a synchronization between the position signals and the profile being created, and the values stored in the profile being used to modify the number of pulses outputted to the goniometer.

  • Patent number: 9184679
    Abstract: A method for predicting a value for a length of a future time interval in which a physical variable changes is described, in which at least one measured value for the length of a past time interval and an instantaneously measured value for a length of an instantaneous time interval are taken into account, m values for lengths of past time intervals being added. A first value precedes the instantaneously measured value by k?1, and an mth value precedes the instantaneously measured value by k?m. The m added values are divided by a value for a length of a past time interval which precedes the instantaneously measured value by k. A ratio of the mentioned values is formed. For determining the value to be predicted, an average error is initially added to the instantaneously measured value, forming a sum. The formed ratio is subsequently applied to this sum.
