  • Publication number: 20190267971
    Abstract: Aspects of this disclosure relate to a surface acoustic wave filter with an integrated temperature sensor. The integrated temperature sensor can be a resistive thermal device configured as a reflective grating for a surface acoustic wave resonator, for example. A radio frequency system can provide over temperature protection by reducing a power level of a radio frequency signal provided to the surface acoustic wave filter responsive to an indication of temperature provided by the integrated temperature sensor satisfying a threshold.

  • Patent number: 10308167
    Abstract: A vehicle defining an opening with a closure panel adapted to cover the opening generally includes a window in the closure panel. Furthermore, a rear window defrosting wire is often mounted to the window. A user interface system is disclosed to include a capacitive switch wire having a portion mounted to the window proximate to, and overlapping with, the rear window defrosting wire, and a capacitive switch control unit connected to the capacitive switch wire and adapted to interpret a change a capacitance near the terminus of the capacitive switch wire as a command request. The system includes a projector and a controller adapted to control the projector to project an image onto the window proximate to the terminus of the capacitive switch wire, receive an indication of receipt of the command request and transmit a command to cause a state change in an element of the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10107026
    Abstract: A method for operating a closure panel of a vehicle, comprising: using a processor, determining whether a first proximity sensor and a second proximity sensor located on a periphery of the vehicle have been sequentially activated to indicate an object moving across the first proximity sensor and the second proximity sensor; and, controlling the closure panel to open or close when the first proximity sensor and the second proximity sensor have been sequentially activated.

  • Publication number: 20180238094
    Abstract: A non-contact obstacle detection (NCOD) system for an opening in a vehicle includes a cover panel, such as a glass pane, slidable between opened and closed positions within the opening. The system includes one or more infrared time-of-flight (IR-TOF) sensors which measure the length of a beam of infrared light by measuring the time that the infrared light in the beam takes to travel the length of the beam and to reflect back to the sensor. The IR-TOF sensors may be configured to provide a beam of light along either the side edge of the frame parallel to the sliding direction or a terminal edge generally transverse to the sliding direction. Methods are provided for detecting obstacles within the opening of the frame by controllers using the lengths of beams from each of those different beam configurations, and for self-calibrating the system.

    Abstract: Current aggregation using diplexers. A multiplexing system can include a first diplexer and a second diplexer. The first diplexer can have a first transmit terminal, a first receive terminal, and a first common terminal. The first diplexer can be configured to filter a first transmit signal received at the first transmit terminal to a first cellular frequency band and output the filtered first transmit signal at the first common terminal. The first diplexer can be further configured to filter a first receive signal received at the first common terminal to a second cellular frequency band and output the filtered first receive signal at the first receive terminal input. The second diplexer can have a second transmit terminal, a second receive terminal, and a second common terminal. The second diplexer can be configured to filter a second transmit signal received at the second transmit terminal to the second cellular frequency band and output the filtered second transmit signal at the second common terminal.
