  • Patent number: 10990244
    Abstract: A navigation apparatus displays nodes of a navigation tree stored in a storage device in a manner that one selected node is displayed in an expanded display form and further nodes are displayed in a reduced display form on a display unit. In response to a selection of a subordinate node, the previously selected node is converted into the reduced display form and the newly selected node is converted into an expanded display form.

  • Patent number: 9650450
    Abstract: The invention provides for a process for removing thiocarbonylthio groups from polymer prepared by RAFT polymerization, the process comprising: introducing into a flow reactor a solution comprising the RAFT polymer in solvent; and promoting a reaction within the flow reactor that removes the thiocarbonylthio groups so as to form a solution that flows out of the reactor comprising the RAFT polymer absent the thiocarbonylthio groups.

  • Patent number: 5383700
    Abstract: A vehicle sun visor having a sun-visor body with a sun-visor shaft at a corner. One end region of the shaft is seated in a bearing housing in the sun-visor body and clamped against by a spring. The end region of the sun-visor shaft has as a detent an axial region corresponding to the axial extent of the spring. The sun-visor shaft has three circumferential regions of different diameter over the axial detent region including a flat, and starting from one lengthwise edge of the flat, a circular arc region and, adjoining that, a region which is spirally decreasing in diameter toward the opposite circumferential edge of the flat.
