  • Publication number: 20210009107
    Abstract: A method for operating a driver assistance system of a vehicle involves, for determining a position of the vehicle in a digital environment map, detecting environment data for the vehicle using an on-board sensor system and matched with map data stored in the environment map. A position of the vehicle in a real environment is determined using position data of the vehicle from an on-board satellite receiver. Accuracy of the determined position of the vehicle is determined based on the position data and environment data matched with the environment data. Accuracy is predicted with which the position of the vehicle in the environment map can be determined for a predetermined section of road ahead of the vehicle. Fully automated operation of the vehicle is enabled when the determined accuracy and the predicted accuracy for the predetermined section of road ahead of the vehicle are greater than at least one accuracy threshold.

  • Patent number: 7122872
    Abstract: Materials such as titanium are vapor-deposited in the presence of, e.g., oxygen to form a film on a substrate, such as to provide an adhesion layer between a silicon movable structure in an optical MEMS device and a gold layer serving as a reflecting surface. The resulting film contains titanium and oxygen. Varying the conditions under which the film is deposited varies the intrinsic stress of the film, which varies the change in substrate shape caused by the presence of the film. A film having a desired intrinsic stress may be obtained by control of the oxygen partial pressure when the film is deposited. In one embodiment, the oxygen partial pressure in the atmosphere present during titanium deposition is greater than about 2×10?7 Torr, and preferably between about 1×10?6 Torr and about 2×10?6 Torr.

  • Publication number: 20060076432
    Abstract: A device and a method for determining the freezing point of a washer fluid with a heater for heating the washer fluid. The invention provides a temperature sensor, which provides continuous electric signals, which represent the current temperature values of the washer fluid, and an analyzing and controlling unit, which ascertains the temperature behavior of the washer fluid from the signals and determines the characteristic values of the washer fluid from the ascertained temperature behavior.

  • Patent number: 6933004
    Abstract: Materials such as titanium are vapor-deposited to form a film on a substrate while the substrate is thermally coupled to a temperature-controlling thermal source. Varying the temperature conditions of the substrate when the film is deposited varies the intrinsic stress of the film, which varies the change in substrate shape caused by the presence of the film. A film having a desired intrinsic stress may be obtained by control of the substrate temperature when the film is deposited. A stress-controlled titanium film may be used, for example, as an adhesion layer between a silicon movable structure in an optical MEMS device and a gold layer serving as a reflecting surface.

  • Patent number: 6888470
    Abstract: A MEMS device employed in an optical switch has a position sensor configured to determine mirror orientation in the device. The position sensor includes at least one light sensor located under an etch gap defining the mirror in the switch. Change of light intensity at each light sensor due to the change in separation corresponding to the etch gap during mirror motion is measured and related to the mirror deflection angle. Information about the angle may be used to provide feedback to the motion actuator, which then may be operated to orient the mirror more accurately.

  • Publication number: 20050048968
    Abstract: A wireless communication system having primary and supplemental communication sub-systems. The primary communication sub-system includes a plurality of base stations and a mobile services switching center (MSC) of the prior art. The supplemental communication sub-system includes one or more supplemental transceiver units (STUs) controlled by a supplemental switching center (SSC) having access to a public switched telephone network. Each STU has a primary function and, in addition, is adapted to support (i) a wireless communication link with at least one mobile station and (ii) a wire-line communication link with the SSC. In one embodiment, an STU of the invention has a conventional TV receiver and a TV screen whose primary function is to receive and display television programs supplied over a cable network.
