  • Publication number: 20190089333
    Abstract: A SAW filter arrangement (FA) with a large bandwidth is specified, wherein a first filter (F1) and a second filter (F2) are connected in parallel between a first node (K1) and a second node (K2). The first filter (F1) and the second filter (F2) are both SAW filter configurations that are configured as DMS filters and both comprise two DMS tracks each, connected in series (S11, S12; S21, S22). The two filters (F1, F2) have different center frequencies and create a common passband together. The filter arrangement may comprise a serial resonator (RS) and shunting coils (L1, L2).

  • Patent number: 10140862
    Abstract: Computer-implemented predictions of upcoming traffic control signal states or state changes can be used to improve driver convenience, safety, and fuel economy. Such information can be used advantageously by a human operator, or by an autonomous or semi-autonomous vehicle control system. Predictions can be computed with suitable machines installed in a vehicle, in cooperation with a remote back-end server system. The prediction computations in the vehicle may be supported by data communicated to the vehicle computing machinery over various wireless communications, including telecom systems, DSRC, etc.

  • Publication number: 20180303614
    Abstract: A surgical instrument implementing a leaflet grabbing mechanism by a leaflet grabbing structure, in which the leaflet can be grabbed and clamped between first and second abutment surfaces. The first, proximally facing abutment surface belongs to a swivel-out portion of the leaflet grabbing structure, which includes at least a first arm and a second arm. In a released state, when the leaflet grabbing structure is released from a catheter, the arms are capable of swiveling: the first arm may swivel with respect to a main body to which it is attached, and the second arm may swivel relative to the first arm so that in a leaflet grabbing position the first abutment surface faces proximally. The second arm includes a recess arranged so that a chord extending between a released distal implant part and a proximal implant part can extend therethrough and be released by a lateral relative movement.

  • Publication number: 20180286223
    Abstract: Devices, systems, and methods are disclosed for connecting traffic signal control infrastructure, in-service transit vehicles, and back-end computing and service systems, and providing an adaptable user interface, remotely effecting a change on a Portable Electronic Device (PED), verifying location of transit vehicles and tailoring information to the behavior of a transit operator. System determines an “optimal window” for a transit vehicle to travel through a maximum number of consecutive traffic signals during the green vehicular phase. The system determines and sends a recommended speed to traverse the optimal window. In a case where an optimal window is not possible under current circumstances, the system determines and then advises the driver to remain at the current station for a specified dwell time.

  • Patent number: 9809248
    Abstract: The invention provides a steering system comprising a controlled element which is movable in a neutral area comprising a neutral position and in areas on opposite sides of the neutral area based on a steering input and a handle for requesting a desired position for the controlled element. The handle is movable between set-points in a center zone comprising a center set-point and set-points on opposite sides of the center zone. Furthermore, a steering unit is arranged to receive set-points from the handle, to determine a corresponding controlled position of the controlled element, and to move the controlled element to said controlled position. In order to prevent or reduce jerks, the steering unit is adapted to vary a speed by which the controlled element is moved to the controlled position. The speed is variable in dependence of the received set-point.

  • Publication number: 20170297617
    Abstract: Hydraulic steering (1) is disclosed comprising a high pressure port (P), a low pressure port (T), two working ports (CL, CR), a manual steering section (3), and a steering valve section having a steering valve 5 and a hydraulic driving arrangement (6) adjusting hydraulically a position of said steering valve. A change from automatic steering to manual steering should be reliably ensured when the manual steering section is directly influenced by a driver. To this end, a switching valve (11) is provided, which is actuatable between a first position in which said driving arrangement (6) is supplied with hydraulic fluid under pressure, and a second position in which a supply of hydraulic fluid to said driving arrangement (6) is interrupted, wherein said switching valve (11) is hydraulically actuated into said second position by a pressure generated upon actuating of said manual steering section (3).
