  • Publication number: 20210216949
    Abstract: A method for agreeing to a collaboration between a first system and a second system. The method includes: assumptions of the first system with respect to the second system, and guarantees of the first system to the second system, are transmitted by the first system, assumptions of the second system with respect to the first system, and guarantees of the second system to the first system, are transmitted by the second system, if reciprocal assumptions and guarantees correspond to one another, a digital safety contract is concluded between the first system and the second system, and the safety contract is documented in a transaction database.

  • Publication number: 20210183177
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for model-based analysis, in particular safety analysis, of a technical system, in particular of a control device for a semiautonomous or autonomous vehicle. The method includes: furnishing a model that characterizes the system; furnishing first information items that characterize dependences between different components and/or subsystems of the system; ascertaining at least one state that at least one component and/or subsystem of the system, and/or the system, can assume; ascertaining, in particular based on the first information items and/or on the at least one state, a method for describing a behavior of the system.

  • Patent number: 10719416
    Abstract: A method/device for recognizing a microprocessor hardware error, including comparing a first application's first result, running on a first microprocessor, with a second application's second result, running on the first/second microprocessor, with a microcontroller, providing comparison strategies, the hardware error being recognized as a function of the comparison, the microcontroller receiving a first message from the first microprocessor, and receiving a second message from the first microprocessor if the second application runs on the first microprocessor, or receives a first message from the second microprocessor if the second application runs thereon, the first message containing first comparison strategy information and first result information of a first function calculation, the second message containing second comparison strategy information and second result information of a second function calculation, the first and second strategy information being compared, the first and second result informatio

  • Publication number: 20200050521
    Abstract: A processing system encompasses several processing devices and a comparison device. A method for controlling the processing system encompasses: processing of identical information items by the processing devices using associated processing processes; furnishing a characteristic value of each processing process, respectively as a function of the processing that has occurred; and comparing the characteristic values by way of the comparison device and determining a defectively operating processing process on the basis of the comparison. The defectively operating processing process is replaced by a processing process restarted on the same processing device.

  • Publication number: 20190026198
    Abstract: A method/device for configuring at least one execution unit for detecting a state of operation of the one execution unit, the method/device comprising at least assigning a first replica of an item of application software for the purpose of execution on at least one computing core of the execution unit depending on information relating to at least one item of hardware or relating to at least one operating system of the execution unit assigning a second replica of the application software for the purpose of execution on the computing core of the execution unit depending on the information relating to the at least one item of hardware or relating to the operating system of the execution unit.

  • Patent number: 6346918
    Abstract: An antenna includes first and second arrays spaced apart by a dielectric slab having a predetermined thickness, each of the first and second arrays provided from antenna elements having a linear polarization with the antenna elements in said first array disposed orthogonally to the antenna elements in said second array. The antenna further includes a feed circuit coupled to said first and second antenna arrays to provide said first and second antenna arrays having a phase relationship such that the antenna receives and transmits signals having circular polarization and dielectric material having differing characteristics for providing an impedance transformation that varies with scan angle in accordance with the a scan impedance of said antenna thereby providing the antenna having a scan impedance which is substantially the same over a scan sector while at the same time preserving the response characteristic of the antenna to signals having circular polarization.

  • Publication number: 20010044981
    Abstract: An oral brush with a handle having a longitudinal axis and a head mounted on the handle, the head including an elongated hub extending generally axially from the handle and bristles mounted in the hub, including bristles along most of the length of the hub which extend radially in all directions from the hub and which taper down in length from the base end of the hub to the front tip of the hub, and including bristles extending from the front tip of the hub in all directions as generally semispherical radii, the free ends of the bristles of the head defining a conical or bullet-shaped envelope.
