  • Publication number: 20220024460
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for configuring one or more systems related to the operation of a vehicle includes: in response to receiving input data indicative of a user being about to initiate an operation of the vehicle: determining an identity of the user, loading first data representative of one or more mapping rules from a first memory device, selecting and loading second data representative of one or more generic settings from a second memory device, wherein selecting the data is based on the identity of the user, transforming, based on the mapping rules, the generic settings into vehicle-specific settings, and configuring, based on the vehicle-specific settings, the one or more systems related to the operation of the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20190305518
    Abstract: A laser diode of the VC SEL type includes, superimposed on top of a substrate, a bottom Bragg mirror, a region of one or more quantum wells, and a top Bragg mirror. A section of the bottom Bragg mirror has an area that is less than that of a section of the top Bragg mirror, the sections being defined in planes parallel to the plane of the substrate. The laser diode further includes a peripheral region, constituted by a confinement material, situated between the substrate and the top Bragg mirror, and surrounding at least the bottom Bragg mirror. The laser diode is devoid of any laterally-oxidized layer. Thanks to the specific geometrical configuration of the laser diode, the charge carriers are confined, during operation, to the center of the laser diode.

  • Patent number: 8284483
    Abstract: A method for acquiring signals in laser scanning microscopy, includes the steps of: moving a focused optical excitation beam relative to an object to be measured so that the focus point of the beam follows a predetermined path in the space of the object; and acquiring optical measurement signals along the path according to at least one acquisition parameter; characterized in that the path of the excitation beam is determined so as to substantially minimize the variations of the optical properties of at least one portion of the environments crossed by the excitation beam between consecutive acquisitions, and in that at least one acquisition parameter among the acquisition parameters is modulated during the movement of the excitation beam. A device for implementing the method is also described.
