  • Publication number: 20220381418
    Abstract: The trend towards increasing the glazed area in automobiles has reduced the potential locations for mounting cabin lighting. This is especially true for vehicles having large panoramic glazing. Attempts to utilize integrated light sources within the glazing have had mixed results. Embedded LEDs in the laminate tend to be too bright for night driving. Edge feed illumination with light dispersing elements on the glass to date have only been able to provide low intensity levels. Both approaches tend to reduce visibility and aesthetics in the off state. The current invention provides a means and a method to produce a laminate which provides bright cabin lighting without compromising the function of the glazing to serve as a window, by creating a light dispersing layer that is substantially invisible when in the off state and very bright in the on state.

  • Publication number: 20220261212
    Abstract: Examples described herein relate to transitioning a playback session between portable playback devices such as “smart” headphones, earbuds, and handheld speakers with playback devices of a zone-based media playback system. Exemplary techniques facilitate continuity of playback when transitioning between locations (e.g., from at home to on-the-go or vice versa) or between listening paradigms (e.g., personal or out-loud playback of audio content). An example implementation includes detecting a swap trigger, determining the source playback device(s) and target playback device(s), and performing a playback session swap between the source playback device(s) and target playback device(s).

  • Publication number: 20220232774
    Abstract: A modular frame system for a sugarcane harvester includes a base frame section having a forward end and an aft end, with the base frame section defining a forward interface portion at the forward end. The system also includes a plurality of interchangeable front frame sections configured to be removably coupled to the base frame section, with each front frame section having a unique frame arrangement as compared to the remainder of the interchangeable front frame sections such that each front frame section is adapted to provide a differing harvesting configuration for the sugarcane harvester when selected for installation on the base frame section. Moreover, each front frame section includes a front end and a rear interface end, with the rear interface ends of the interchangeable front frame sections defining a common interface portion configured to be coupled to the forward interface portion of the base frame section.

  • Publication number: 20220220061
    Abstract: a) The present invention falls within the area of the synthesis of ionic liquids, namely it concerns a process of synthesis of the ionic liquid tetraoctylammonium di(2-ethylhexyl)-oxamate (IL-5) with a high degree of purity and its use in the extraction and selective separation of metals, namely lanthanides. Thus, it is the object of the present invention, a process for the synthesis of a pure ionic liquid using in its constitution only the elements carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen (CHON), assuming itself as a “green” alternative in the recovery of metals, thus reducing the environmental impact in the way they are recovered, as well as the guarantee of a more efficient extraction of these metals.

  • Patent number: 11027171
    Abstract: The tensile force sensor comprises at least one strain gauge in a tension piece comprising a central rectilinear segment and two folds at an angle, significantly thicker than the central rectilinear segment. The strain gauge is arranged in said central rectilinear segment in such a manner that a traction force on the fastening ends of the tension piece results in a U-shaped buckling of the central rectilinear segment. The invention also comprises a processing module connected to the strain gauge, adapted to detect and process as data the elastic deformations caused in the central rectilinear segment by the longitudinal stresses generated by traction on the fastening ends of the tension piece. The invention allows a portable and low cost wireless sensor to be produced.

  • Patent number: 10755884
    Abstract: A fuse element, in particular suited for use in electric and/or electronic circuits constructed by multilayer technology, including a printed circuit board substrate material, which is usable particularly in the multilayer technology and is coated with a metal or metal alloy from which the fuse is generated by means of photolithographic and/or printing image-producing techniques and ensuing etching or engraving processes, is proposed. The fuse is distinguished in that the printed circuit board substrate material, on which the fuse can be provided, includes at least a high-temperature-stable, electrically insulating material, with a coefficient of thermal expansion that varies essentially analogously to the coefficient of thermal expansion of the metal or metal alloy from which the fuse is made.
