  • Patent number: 10054724
    Abstract: An exposed lens retroreflective article (100), transfer articles comprising same, and methods of making same. The retroreflective article can include a binder layer (114); a layer of transparent microspheres (108) partially embedded in the binder layer; and reflective layer (110) disposed between the binder layer and the microspheres. The reflective layer (110) can include a dielectric mirror, which can include a first stack (115) and a second stack (111) positioned in planar contact with the first stack, wherein each of the first stack and the second stack comprises at least one bilayer (119), wherein each bilayer comprises a first material with a first bonding group and a second material with a complementary second bonding group. The transfer article can include the retroreflective article and a carrier web. The method can include partially embedding transparent microspheres in a carrier web; applying the reflective layer to the microspheres, and applying a binder layer composition to the reflective layer.

  • Publication number: 20170151935
    Abstract: A trailer oscillation and stability control device including an accelerometer and an angular rate sensor. An oscillation detection discriminator detects oscillatory lateral trailer motion in response to trailer displacement data derived from inputs from the angular rate sensor and acceleration signals received from the accelerometer, and then generates corresponding oscillatory event data. A brake controller generates a braking control signal in response to oscillatory event data received from the oscillation detection discriminator.

  • Patent number: 9272941
    Abstract: The disclosure is directed to a cutting process involving: (a) creating a starter crack using a scribe wheel, (b) application of laser or electrothermal heating, and (c) subsequent cooling from a gas or an aerosol jet, as the laser beam and cooling jet move along the desired cutting line. The cutting process can be implemented for cutting a glass panel or other substrate into a plurality of smaller panels. The starter crack may be created on any of the smaller panels within about 10 mm to about 20 mm from the corner of the smaller panel.

  • Publication number: 20150332570
    Abstract: A RFID tag object association location system without reference to spatial location information using the RFID tag field. The system comprises RFID tags comprising extended object information associated with an object and secured to the object. One or more than one RFID reader having a resolution to differentiate between RFID tags that are close to each other and tags that are far away from each other communicatively coupled to the one or more than one RFID tag. Instructions executable on a processor communicatively coupled to the one or more than one RFID reader for data analysis of the extended object information, reporting useful information about the object stored on the RFID tag, determining an object fingerprint and performing relative object location comparison of the object fingerprints to determine a location for the object.
