  • Patent number: 10807505
    Abstract: A seating assembly includes a shell assembly having a seat base coupled with a seatback. A base assembly is operably coupled with the shell assembly. The base assembly includes an outer portion defining an opening and an engagement slot. An inner portion is positioned through the opening of the outer portion. The inner portion includes a sidewall defining a receiving well. A barrel is positioned around the inner portion. The barrel defines a track extending helically from a lower end of the barrel to an upper end of the barrel. A bearing is received by the engagement slot, the receiving well, and the track. The bearing is movable along the engagement slot and the track simultaneously. An actuator is operably coupled with the barrel and is configured to rotate the barrel. Rotation of the barrel is configured to vertically translate the inner portion relative to the outer portion.

  • Publication number: 20200247337
    Abstract: A vehicle for automatically learning and recalling driver preferences includes a subsystem and a processor. The processor builds, for a user profile, an ideal range in which the subsystem has been adjusted over key cycles. For each instance in which the user profile is loaded, the processor causes the subsystem to adjust to the latest saved user adjustment of the subsystem. The processor save the current user adjustment in response to the current user adjustment of the subsystem being within the ideal range.

  • Publication number: 20190329672
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus to facilitate anthropometric seat adjustments are disclosed. An example vehicle comprises corresponding sensors and motors, a processor, and memory. The sensors generate actual position information of the motors. The processor and memory are configured to: convert the actual position information into first body dimensions; receive second body dimensions; convert the second body dimensions into target position information; and adjust the motors using the target position information.

  • Patent number: 10056670
    Abstract: A method has been described for making an electrical structure having an air dielectric and includes forming a first subunit including a sacrificial substrate, an electrically conductive layer including a first metal on the sacrificial substrate, and a sacrificial dielectric layer on the sacrificial substrate and the electrically conductive layer. The method further includes forming a second subunit including a dielectric layer and an electrically conductive layer thereon including the first metal, and coating a second metal onto the first metal of one or more of the first and second subunits. The method also includes aligning the first and second subunits together, heating and pressing the aligned first and second subunits to form an intermetallic compound of the first and second metals bonding adjacent metal portions together, and removing the sacrificial substrate and sacrificial dielectric layer to thereby form the electrical structure having the air dielectric.
