  • Publication number: 20200239905
    Abstract: In the present invention, HPPD polypeptides and plants containing them showing a full tolerance against one or more HPPD inhibitor herbicides belonging to various chemical classes are described. A set of mutant HPPD polypeptides have been designed which have either no or only a significantly reduced affinity to HPPD inhibitor herbicides and, at the same time, the rate of dissociation of the HPPD inhibitors of the mutant HPPD polypeptide is increased to such an extent that the HPPD inhibitors no longer act as slow-binding or slow, tight-binding inhibitors but, instead of this, have become fully reversible inhibitors. In particular, isolated polynucleotides encoding mutant HPPD polypeptides conferring tolerance to HPPD inhibitor herbicides belonging to various chemical classes are provided. Additionally, amino acid sequences corresponding to the polynucleotides are encompassed.

  • Patent number: 9764603
    Abstract: A method for measuring the depth of tread in a vehicle tire includes measuring acceleration signals from a tire module arranged on the inner side of the tire. A minimum acceleration value is then determined during rotation of the vehicle tire and at a constant traveling speed whereafter the maximum internal radius of the inner side of the tire is determined in the center of a ground contact area of the vehicle tire. The depth of tread of the vehicle tire is determined with signal processing whereafter the determined depth of tread is transmitted to a receiving unit in the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 9375983
    Abstract: An apparatus for displaying the state of the tire pressure for a vehicle tire of a truck trailer includes a lamp to optically display the tire pressure state. An arm is provided with the lamp arranged thereon. A mount fixes the arm to the truck trailer and the arm is made substantially of an elastomer material so as to cause the arm to be flexibly deformable when colliding with a foreign object. The arm reverts back to its initial configuration after such a collision as a result of its elastic material characteristic.
