  • Patent number: 12040317
    Abstract: An optoelectronic device comprises a plurality of optoelectronic light sources being arranged on a first layer, in particular an intermediate layer being arranged between a cover layer and a carrier layer. The first layer comprises or consists of an at least partially transparent material and each optoelectronic light source of the plurality of optoelectronic light sources comprises an individual light converter for converting light emitted by the associated light source into converted light. The light converter of each optoelectronic light source is arranged on the first layer and/or the associated optoelectronic light source.

  • Patent number: 11305469
    Abstract: A method for production of an interior unit for a motor vehicle includes production of a support by injection molding, featuring an enclosed front side, wherein at a backside of the support a screw boss is formed whose drill hole is sealed by a support section in the direction of the front side of the support, which support section features a reduced wall thickness in comparison to the remainder of the support, and production of a foam layer on the enclosed front side of the support. Furthermore, the present disclosure relates to an interior unit for a motor vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10061310
    Abstract: A method for the control of an industrial truck during order picking by an industrial truck with at least one environment sensor for the detection of the relative position of an operator in the environment of the industrial truck. The method includes moving the industrial truck using a control system. As the position of the operator changes, and when the operator stops, the industrial truck is stopped at a freely selectable distance specified in advance in the longitudinal direction of the vehicle between a reference point of a load handling device of the industrial truck and the position of the operator.

  • Publication number: 20170038000
    Abstract: A device for fastening a wear sensor to a brake lever of a vehicle brake, in particular to a brake lever having an integrated adjustment function for the vehicle brake. The device having an integrated adjustment function of a vehicle brake has a recess for the contactless passage of a brake shaft; a first fastening point for fastening a first side of the device to a housing portion of the brake lever; and at least one second fastening point for fastening a wear sensor to a second side of the device opposite the first side, wherein the second fastening point is arranged spaced apart from the first fastening point.

  • Publication number: 20150205271
    Abstract: The method and the apparatus are concerned exclusively with dynamic processes that can be represented dominantly by discrete-event processes and for the dynamics of which it is not the time but rather the logical order of the symbols that is critical. The method and the apparatus cater to the specifics of discrete-event problems. The technical apparatus for designing and realizing automated reactions to the failure of actuators and sensors in discrete automation-engineering installations ensures that the effects of said failures on the process remain at a minimum, and also a method that allows said faults to be systematically integrated into discrete-event models in order to take this as a basis for carrying out formal design of fault-tolerant discrete-event controllers.

  • Publication number: 20150089995
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to accelerator type crash simulation test systems. These systems provide repeatable and reliable simulation of vehicle frontal impact crash events. The crash simulation test systems are capable of simulating motion in the form of rotation about a vertical Z-axis and/or translation in a direction perpendicular to the motion of the ServoSled. The combination of these motions is generally known as yaw. Yaw motion is of particular interest in frontal crash events in which the center of impact is offset from the center of the vehicle. The yaw motion can be achieved, for example, in several embodiments by the use of off-board actuators that supply yawing motions to an onboard platform.

  • Patent number: 8943871
    Abstract: A crash sled system for simulating the deceleration and pitching motion associated with vehicle crashes. A main sled is accelerated in accordance with vehicle deceleration that occurred during a crash event. A pitching platform is located above and moves with the main sled. Forward and rear guide assemblies are provided which are located along the sides of the pitching platform when the main sled and pitching platform are in the pre-launch position. When the main sled is launched, the front and rear ends of the pitching platform travel along paths established by the guide assemblies. Prior to launch, the guide assemblies are set to angles of inclination that provide linear approximations to paths for the forward and aft ends of the pitching platform that will result in pitching motion experienced by vehicles during the crash events being simulated. Variously configured guide assemblies are disclosed that provide design trade-off between simulation accuracy and system complexity.

During launch, the front and rear ends of the pitching platform travel along paths established by the guide assemblies. Prior to launch, the guide assemblies are set to angles of inclination that provide linear approximations to paths for the forward and all ends of the pitching platform that will result in pitching motion experienced by vehicles during the crash events being simulated. Variously configured guide assemblies are disclosed that provide design trade-off between simulation accuracy and system complexity.
