  • Publication number: 20210031800
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method of cooperatively coordinating future driving maneuvers of a vehicle with fellow maneuvers of at least one fellow vehicle, wherein a fellow data packet is received from the fellow vehicle, in which a fellow trajectory set of a fellow reference trajectory is contained, a trajectory from a trajectory set for the vehicle is selected as a reference trajectory for the vehicle using the fellow reference trajectory, wherein a trajectory which is collision-free towards the fellow reference trajectory is selected, the trajectories of the trajectory set are rated using limit trajectories, and at least one cooperation trajectory is selected from the trajectories of the trajectory set using the reference effort value, wherein a data packet containing the reference trajectory and the cooperation trajectory is transmitted to the fellow vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10856860
    Abstract: A trocar sleeve comprises a flexible hollow shaft comprising a distal end and a proximal end, and a handling head that is formed at the proximal end of the hollow shaft. The trocar sleeve is manufactured from an elastomer material. The hollow shaft comprises an inner contour that is adapted to an outer contour of a trocar mandrel in such a way that the trocar sleeve and the trocar mandrel are arranged to be coupled to one another while generating a defined preload to stabilize the trocar sleeve. A trocar system comprises a trocar sleeve and a trocar mandrel that is arranged to be inserted in the trocar sleeve, while generating a defined preloading in the trocar sleeve. A method of manufacturing a trocar sleeve involves integrally forming a hollow shaft and a handling head in a common mold by molding.

  • Patent number: 10724998
    Abstract: A method and system for inspecting a rail profile include using ultrasonic phased arrays. Determined anomalies, such as material flaws like volumetric defects and cracks, in a fluid-immersed rail profile are detected by employing one or more phased array probes located proximate the rail profile. Electronic delays and beam steering and focusing can be employed to tailor the inspection to the rail geometry.

  • Patent number: 10539492
    Abstract: A device for determining a concentration of particles in a gas flow, e.g., soot particles in exhaust gas of an internal combustion engine, includes a carrier and a sensor, which is situated on a surface of the carrier and can be exposed to the gas flow, the sensor including an electrode structure including at least two measuring electrodes that are of different polarity and that are formed as an interdigital comb structure including finger electrodes. In first areas of the interdigital comb structure, the finger electrodes have a first mutual distance in relation to each other, and in second areas of the interdigital comb structure, the finger electrodes have a second smaller mutual distance in relation to each other, the first areas and the second areas in the interdigital comb structure each at least partially adjoining each other alternately, occupying respective surface areas on the sensor.

  • Patent number: 10422718
    Abstract: A test appliance and a method for testing a mirror, e.g., a mirror of a microlithographic projection exposure apparatus. The test appliance has a computer-generated hologram (CGH), and a test can be carried out on at least a portion of the mirror by way of an interferometric superposition of a test wave that is directed onto the mirror by this computer-generated hologram and a reference wave. Here, the computer-generated hologram (CGH) (120, 320) is designed in such a way that, during operation of the appliance, it provides a first test wave for testing a first portion of the mirror (101, 301) by interferometric superposition with a reference wave in a first position of the mirror (101, 301) and at least a second test wave for testing a second portion of the mirror (101, 301) by interferometric superposition with a reference wave in a second position of the mirror (101, 301).

  • Publication number: 20190287540
    Abstract: An apparatus for downmixing three or more audio input channels to obtain two or more audio output channels is provided. The apparatus includes a receiving interface for receiving the three or more audio input channels and for receiving side information. Moreover, the apparatus includes a downmixer for downmixing the three or more audio input channels depending on the side information to obtain the two or more audio output channels. The number of the audio output channels is smaller than the number of the audio input channels. The side information indicates a characteristic of at least one of the three or more audio input channels, or a characteristic of one or more sound waves recorded within the one or more audio input channels, or a characteristic of one or more sound sources which emitted one or more sound waves recorded within the one or more audio input channels.

  • Patent number: 10337850
    Abstract: A measurement arrangement (10) and an associated method for interferometrically determining the surface shape (12) of a test object (14) includes a light source (16) providing an input wave (18) and a diffractive optical element (24). The diffractive optical element is configured to produce in each case by way of diffraction from the input wave a test wave (26), which is directed at the test object (14) and has a wavefront that is adapted at least partially to a desired shape of the optical surface, and a reference wave (28). The measurement arrangement furthermore includes a reflective optical element (30) that back-reflects the reference wave (28) and a capture device (36) that captures an interferogram produced by superposing the test wave after interaction with the test object and the back-reflected reference wave (28), in each case after a further diffraction at the diffractive optical element in a capture plane (48).
