  • Publication number: 20180056875
    Abstract: Methods and systems to control a position of a reflective surface of a mirror of a vehicle are disclosed. The method includes providing the vehicle with at least one sensor configured to measure at least one vehicle characteristic and a controller in electronic communication with the at least one sensor; receiving, by the controller, vehicle data corresponding to the at least one vehicle characteristic from the at least one vehicle sensor; calculating, by the controller, a reflective surface adjustment based on the vehicle data; and automatically controlling, by the controller, the actuator to change the position of the reflective surface of the mirror from a first position to a second position based on the reflective surface adjustment.

  • Patent number: 9621798
    Abstract: A method for providing a high resolution display image that includes providing a camera image that can be processed into at least two different camera views. The method also includes identifying a warped grid in each of the at least two different camera views and identifying a minimum field of view for displaying each of the at least two different camera views. The method further includes cropping the camera image based on the identified minimum field of view and de-warping the at least two different camera views to provide the high resolution display image.

  • Patent number: 8744658
    Abstract: Methods, control systems, and vehicle are provided for controlling a vehicle that has a rechargeable energy storage system (RESS). A method includes storing with a control module a chosen outside air temperature (OAT) that is based on data from an OAT sensor and a cooling cycle of the RESS, and controlling the vehicle with the chosen OAT when a cooling cycle of the RESS is indicated. The control system and vehicle include control modules configured to perform the method.

  • Publication number: 20130218724
    Abstract: Vehicle ownership impact evaluations are implemented by a host system having logic executable thereon. The logic calculates mileage indicative of a roundtrip for a commute received from a user. The logic also acquires terrain data for the commute from a database containing topological information. The logic uses the routing information, in conjunction with a timestamp associated with input from the user, to access a database containing climate information for a geography identified from the routing information, and determines an estimated climate for a time of year via the timestamp. The logic receives an identifier for a vehicle from the user, and retrieves specification data for the vehicle via the identifier. The logic further applies the specification data to the mileage, the estimated climate, the terrain data, and a base energy price, and calculates estimated costs for the commute in terms of energy consumed for the round trip by the vehicle.
