  • Publication number: 20200031230
    Abstract: A vehicle may include a display for producing a hologram. The display may include a backlight unit for showing visual content. The display may include an instrument cluster. The instrument cluster may include one or more gauges, such as one or more graphical gauges, analog gauges, or hybrid gauges. The visual content may be in addition to and separate from the hologram. The display may include an illumination frame positioned in front of the backlight unit. The illumination frame may include one or more light elements. The display may include a holographic layer positioned in front of the backlight unit. The holographic layer may include a plurality of holographic layers. The one or more light elements may be configured to emit light through the holographic layer to produce the hologram.

  • Patent number: 10533980
    Abstract: A measured value of a sensor element is obtained during repeatedly executed measuring periods for performing different measurements and for setting different operating states, the sensor element being electrically connected in a periodically alternating manner, in consecutive switching positions, in a predefined order, where at least one measurement for determining the measured value is performed repeatedly within a measuring period for determining individual values at predefined switching positions, the measured value being determined from the individual values. Using the switching position within the measuring period, the operating state of the sensor element preceding the individual measurement, and therefore, the influence of the preceding circuit configuration on the individual measured value, is known, and the individual values are correspondingly corrected. By correcting the individual values, the measured value determined from the individual values is also corrected.

  • Patent number: 8475611
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method and a device for the application of a strip material to a substrate. Particularly, the present invention relates to a automatic application of an elongate strip of elastic material to a substrate. The present invention further relates to a device and a method for applying a seal strip such as a weatherstrip seal to a substrate. The elongate strip is advanced by drive means and positioned on a substrate by means of an application unit. The stress of the elongate strip is controlled by a stress control unit which is positioned in the area between the drive means and the application unit.
