  • Publication number: 20140210795
    Abstract: A control assembly for a motor vehicle is arranged so that a control action carried out by a finger is able to be detected. The control assembly includes a control device and a selection element, on which a finger is able to be positioned to make a selection. The selection element is arranged in a predetermined spatial way with respect to the control device either next to or directly next to the control device. The control device is formed to detect a position of the finger on the selection element and to differentiate the control action depending on the detected position.

  • Patent number: 8606455
    Abstract: A method for the automatic operation of a vehicle in an autonomous driving mode not requiring user action is provided. This involves detection of a present traffic situation, a check whether the traffic situation fulfills a first criterion, and a blocking of a functionality which offers to a driver during the autonomous driving mode a secondary activity not related to driving the vehicle if the first criterion is fulfilled. A device for the automatic operation of a vehicle in an autonomous driving mode not requiring user action includes devices designed for carrying out the method for the automatic operation of a vehicle in an autonomous driving mode not requiring user action.

  • Patent number: 7888471
    Abstract: Four novel Bacillus thuringiensis strains, which are deposited at the BCCM-LMG under accession nos. LMG P-12592, LMG P-12593, LMG P-12594, and LMG P-13493, produce new crystal proteins during sporulation that are toxic to Lepidoptera, more particularly against Noctuidae such as Spodoptera spp. and Agrotis ipsilon, against Pyralidae such as Ostrinta nubilalis, and against Yponomeutidae such as Plutella xylostella, and that are encoded by a novel gene. The crystal proteins contain protoxins, which can yield a toxin as trypsin-digestion product. A plant, the genome of which is transformed with a DNA sequence that comes from either one of the strains and that encodes its respective toxin, is resistant to Lepidoptera. Each strain, itself, or its crystals, crystal proteins, protoxin or toxin can be used as the active ingredient in an insecticidal composition for combatting Lepidoptera.

  • Patent number: 7790960
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing plants in which expression of an insecticidal protein is regulated by a wound-induced promoter inducing local expression to the chimeric genes used in this method and the plants obtained thereby, and to the processes for obtaining resistance to insects feeding on plants by localized expression of an insecticidal protein induced on wounding of plants by insect feeding.
