  • Patent number: 9237599
    Abstract: The invention describes a controller for data processing in bidirectional adhoc-network radio communication with a computation unit for data processing and ports for data input and data output. The computation unit is set up to process the data according to the ITS standard, wherein the data processing is limited to processing steps of the ITS Facility layer, which performs content-oriented evaluation and/or conditioning of the data which are received or need to be sent by means of the bidirectional adhoc-network radio communication, and a first wideband communication port is provided at least for receiving the data from an ITS communication unit for the purpose of bidirectional adhoc-network radio communication.

  • Patent number: 8376184
    Abstract: A device for removing condensation from an ice duct of an ice dispenser for a refrigerator. The device may include a flap, which is arranged to seal an output opening of the ice dispenser and a controller for the flap, which is designed to move the flap between a closed position, in which the inner side of the flap contacts the edge of the outlet opening and a dispensing position in which the flap is withdrawn from the edge of the outlet opening to permit the dispensing of ice cubes. Further, the controller is designed to open the flap after expiry of a first time period, during which the flap is not moved by the action of a user or by the controller and to close the flap after expiry of a second time period.

  • Patent number: 8099974
    Abstract: A refrigerator including a housing with a chassis and a door enclosing a chilled interior; and a pressure equalization valve extending through a wall of the housing thereby facilitating an inflow of air from the surroundings into the interior and thereby blocking an outflow of air from the interior into the surroundings, the refrigerator comprising, a wall having a throughbore formed therein in a parallel flow arrangement with the pressure equalization valve, through which air can pass in two directions, wherein the flow of air is less than that of the airflow through the pressure equalization valve in the throughflow direction and greater than that of the air leakage value of the pressure equalization valve in the blocked direction.

  • Patent number: 7987031
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device for determining a tendency to tilt about the longitudinal axis and a tendency to turn about the vertical axis of a vehicle. The detection system is characterized by a lateral acceleration sensor producing a lateral acceleration signal, a yaw rate sensor producing a yaw rate signal, a steering angle sensor producing a steering angle signal, wheel speed sensors producing the rotation signals of the wheels, and which includes a controller which, in response to the steering angle, the steering velocity and the vehicle speed, determines a tendency to tilt about the longitudinal axis of a vehicle and which, in response to the lateral acceleration sensor, the yaw rate sensor, the steering angle sensor and the wheel speed sensors determines the tendency to turn about the vertical axis of the vehicle, and with the controller generating a triggering signal for at least one passenger protection means depending on the extent of these tendencies.

  • Patent number: 7668633
    Abstract: In a method for determining at least one, preferably however several driver-independent interventions in a vehicle system, a risk calculator is used, whose input is supplied with predetermined vehicle data, ambience data, current vehicle and driver data, occupant data or data of persons outside the vehicle, or similar data. The risk calculator issues an evaluation of the risk situation of the vehicle and its occupants or the persons outside the vehicle based on said data and, in accordance with the evaluation and optional additional criteria or weightings, outputs driving signals controlling actuators that modify or trigger the driving behavior of the vehicle and/or the occupant protection system and/or protection means for other traffic participants (pedestrians, cyclists, etc.) in such a way that maximum protection is obtained for the persons and the vehicle according to a priority control.
