  • Patent number: 10285232
    Abstract: A headlight for a motor vehicle includes at least two light sources and a driver, which is arranged to vary the light intensities of the light sources with a phase shift to one another periodically between a minimum and a maximum and in the course of a period to set intermediate values between the maximum and the minimum. In a phase of the period, in which the first light source reaches the maximum of its light intensity, the light intensity of the second light source is situated at an intermediate value and increases.

  • Patent number: 9959263
    Abstract: The subject disclosure relates to configurable multi-view data entry. When a user encounters a form field with a complex data type, depending on the invoking mechanism, either automatic when on focus, or through a user gesture such as clicking on an icon in the form field, the form field expands to multiple form fields including the original form field. The multiple form fields can allow the user to enter in each separate data item that makes up the complex data type. As data items are entered, the data items can be combined into a correct format and displayed in the original form field.

  • Patent number: 9961660
    Abstract: A network access node (eNodeB for example) changing status from active to deactivated sends a message to a location server indicating the changed status. The location server collects from uplink messages indications of which of a plurality of cells have a deactivated status and stores this information in its local memory. Then the location server utilizes the stored indications to ensure that all cells in a list provided to a user equipment for location assistance will have an active status. In various embodiments: the message is sent only when the status is changed for energy saving purposes; a list of cells included in a location request message may have some deactivated cells so the location server sends a message to the eNodeB to activate deactivated cells in the list which is done prior to providing the list to a user equipment; and a partial-activation for a probing/beacon mode is disclosed.

  • Patent number: 9769961
    Abstract: A switch cabinet arrangement which includes a switch cabinet (1) with an installation frame (2) accommodated therein, which delimits an accommodation space (3) for switch cabinet fixtures and which comprises a cooling air duct (5, 6, 7), wherein the installation frame (2) comprises two parallel separated vertical profiles (4) which establish a first attachment plane (a) for the switch cabinet fixtures and wherein the cooling air duct (5, 6, 7) comprises a partition (5) which extends between the vertical profiles (4) and a respective associated switch cabinet side wall (12), characterized in that the partition (5) comprises at least one perforation (6) to which at least one air supply channel (7) is fluidically connected, which leads cooling air introduced via the perforation (6) into the air supply channel (7) in the direction of the accommodation space (3).

  • Patent number: 9753699
    Abstract: A selection in a browser can be mapped back to a corresponding location range in one or more source files that generated the selection. A selection in a source file can be mapped to the corresponding location range in the browser's DOM. The selection in the browser can be mapped to a location range in a block list generated from the DOM. The location range in the DOM's block list can be mapped to a corresponding location range in a block list generated from the fetched file received from a web server. The location range in the fetched file's block list can be mapped to a particular location in the particular source file responsible for generating the selection in the browser. The selection in the browser and the source file can be displayed concurrently, the source file scrolled to the location range corresponding to the selection in the browser.

  • Patent number: 9693280
    Abstract: Apparatus, methods, computer program products, and software are disclosed providing reduction of interference occurring sometime after a capacity booster cell activates, where a coverage area of a capacity booster cell is at least partially within a coverage area of a coverage cell. Techniques include handing off user equipment from the coverage cell to the capacity booster cell, creating by the capacity booster cell scheduling gaps in subframes of radio frames and scheduling user equipment connected to the capacity booster cell in the subframes not in the gaps, scheduling communications for user equipment connected to the coverage cell in the gaps, and performing one or more operations to reduce interference with the capacity booster cell for uplink transmissions from user equipment to the coverage cell.

  • Publication number: 20170134478
    Abstract: An element in a fetched file (a file received from the web server in response to an HTTP request) can be mapped to the source code that generated it and vice versa. When code is compiled at the web server, calls can be executed that emit HTML that includes metadata that maps a snippet of code back to a particular source file and to a particular location in the source file. The HTML can include injected symbols that specify that the information from a particular start position for a particular character length in the HTML comes from a particular start position to a particular end position in the source file.

  • Publication number: 20170099343
    Abstract: A selection in a browser in an integrated development environment can be mapped back to the original document that was fetched from a web server by uniquely identifying elements in the original document. A DOM can be created from the original document where the DOM retains the unique identifiers associated with the elements. Block lists for the original document and the DOM can be created. A differencing algorithm can be run on the two block lists. A selection in a browser can be mapped to a location in the DOM block list and the location in the DOM block list can be mapped to the original document.
