  • Patent number: 9830761
    Abstract: An electronic key having the following features. The electronic key has a key housing and a switch housing in the key housing. The switch housing has an inherently rigid frame having at least one first breakout, and a flexibly deformable membrane which is arranged on the frame in order to close the at least one breakout and to forward a force having effect from the outside on the membrane in the region of the breakout to an electrical switch element arranged within the frame. An electronic key having the required amount of stiffness is thus created, in which sensitive electronic components located therein are also protected from environmental influences. If the deformable membrane is not only used for button-related functions, but also for forming an ejection section for an emergency key or as a rattle protection for the emergency key, a multifunctional switch housing can thus be created simply.

  • Patent number: 9570254
    Abstract: A portable electronic user device, in the form of an electronic key, having an inherently rigid button for activation by a user. The portable electronic user device further has a flexibly deformable membrane including a first side having at least one support section on which the at least one button is supported via the plunger, and an actuating section, separate from the at least one support section, for receiving and forwarding an actuation of the button to an electrical switch element. There is a rigid frame which bears the membrane on a second side opposite the first side, wherein, in the assembled state, having the membrane in the region of the at least one support section, the frame has at least one breakout, via which the membrane is moveable by the plunger upon activating the at least one button and, in dependence on the size and/or the shape of the breakout, provides a force for resetting the button.

  • Publication number: 20120155777
    Abstract: A computer implemented signal processing method to perform a cross-calculation between a first and a second signal by performing a cross-correlation for segments of said first signal with said second signal to obtain a plurality of partial cross correlation functions, obtaining a combined cross-correlation function by combining said partial cross-correlation functions to obtain a combined cross-correlation function, applying an outlier detection or outlier removal approach to identify or remove those segments which are disturbed or corrupted, and re-combining said partial cross-correlation functions without the ones which have been identified as disturbed or corrupted to obtain a less disturbed or less corrupted final cross-correlation function.

  • Publication number: 20110122315
    Abstract: A method determining the temporal relationship between a first video sequence and a second video sequence, said method comprising: obtaining from said first video sequence a first parameter such that the evolvement of said first parameter over time corresponds to the change of the entropy of said first video sequence over time; obtaining from said second video sequence a second parameter such that the evolvement of said second parameter over time corresponds to the change of the entropy of said second video over time; matching the evolvement of said first parameter over time to the evolvement of said second parameter over time to thereby determine the temporal relationship between the two video sequences.
