The present invention relates to a device and a method for controlling a vehicle.
In the state of the art, vehicle control devices and methods are already described, wherein the vehicle is activated by the use of a keyless access system.
Among the various known solutions, the existence of remote control or identification modules that exchange radio or infrared waves with an access controller set up on the vehicle is known.
The user of the vehicle carries such a module in the form of a badge or an identifier which exchanges information by a determined protocol so as to determine access to the vehicle and its various functions or resources.
Mainly as a result of vehicle control conventions inherited from the old technique in which a mechanical key was used both to unlock the doors of the vehicle on the one hand, and to initiate a vehicle start-up sequence on the other hand, combining the keyless access technique with the use of a start button is also proposed.
In order in particular to reproduce the traditional start-up sequences, it is proposed to use the start button as the main vehicle control unit, combined or not combined with pressing a brake pedal or a clutch pedal in order to differentiate the operation to start up the power train from other operations, particularly the powering up of the electrical accessories.
However, the user of the vehicle uses a start button that does not only control the power train.
On the contrary, the user then starts up all the electr ...

The present invention relates to a flexible connection of teaching devices to programmable controllers. A network is used for selectively connecting one teaching device to two or more controllers, or selecting one of at least two teaching devices for connection to selected ones of a plurality of controllers.
Generally, one teaching pendant is hard wired to one programmable controller. If it is desired to communicate with a second programmable controller, then the teaching pendant is manually disconnected from the first programmable controller, or robot, for manual connection to the second controller, or robot.
The prior art requires a teach pendant to be connected to a robot controller at all times and is generally dedicated to the control of that one programmable robot controller. In some cases multiple robots are connected to the same controller in which case one pendant can control multiple robots. However, this is limited to the number of robots that a single controller can accept. It is also limited in that it is difficult or impossible for the robot manufacturer to configure inventory to meet the needs of any combination or permutation of robot arms and controllers.
Another shortcoming of the prior art is that there is only ever one teach pendant that can be used. ...

This invention relates generally to computer-generated three-dimensional design lasts for designing footwear.
Many footwear products are manufactured with the use of a вЂњlast,вЂќ a physical element that helps provides shape for the upper member during the manufacturing process. While providing an adequate base for physical manufacture, because it must fit within a footwear upper and must be capable of being removed from an assembled upper, a last is shaped somewhat different from the upper. For example, the last must be somewhat smaller than the upper to enable it to fit inside and to be removable from the upper. Additionally, last structures typically have a significantly smaller ankle opening area and a significantly overall narrower ankle structure than the final upper structure produced thereon. Additionally, last structures typically have a steeper tongue or instep area than the final u ...

The invention relates to implantable medical leads and, more particularly, to implantable medical leads that include sensors.
A variety of implantable medical devices (IMDs) are available to monitor physiological conditions of a patient, deliver therapy to a patient, or both. Typically, an IMD is coupled to one or more implantable leads that include electrodes. An IMD senses and monitors physiological signals or delivers electrical stimulation through the electrodes. For example, cardiac pacemakers are coupled to one or more implantable leads that include sensing and stimulation electrodes to sense cardiac electrical activity and deliver cardiac pacing pulses.
In some cases, an IMD is additionally coupled to and communicates with one or more physiological sensors. For example, some cardiac pacemakers receive signals output by oxygen saturation sensors, oxygen or carbon dioxide partial pressure sensors, intracardiac or intravascular fluid pressure sensors, temperature sensors, or accelerometers. Cardiac pacemakers typically use the signals output by physiological sensors to control or adjust the pacing therapy delivered to a patient.
Typically, sensors are located some distance away from the IMD, such as within the heart or vascular system of a patient, and communicate with the IMD over a two-conductor bu ...

This application relates to determining the pulse rate of a biological pulsatile signal in the presence of noise. The techniques described herein are particularly useful for processing signals from pulse oximetry sensors.
Pulse oximetry is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure for measuring the level of oxygen saturation in a patient"s arterial blood. Pulse oximetry is based on the principle of passing light energy from at least two wavelengths to a light-absorptive physiologic medium, acquiring the reflected (or transmitted) emitted light, in response to the light absorption, and calculating the oxygen saturation level from the acquired signals. Typical pulse oximeters have two main components: a sensor attached to a patient"s skin for acquiring signals, and a processing unit for processing the acquired signals in order to determine the arterial blood oxygen saturation and pulse rate. Unfortunately, conventional pulse oximetry systems can be susceptible to noise, which can result in unstable readings, inaccurate measurements of pulse rate and oxygen saturation and false alarms. Noise can b ...

Hand-held cellular phones have caused significant interference with navigation systems in commercial aircraft. While the power level on a cellular phone may be adjusted down to as low as six milliwatts for perfect connections, the power output can rise to as much as 2 watts. A hazard nearly as important in preventing that of interference with aircraft navigation is the potential paralysis of the ground-base cellular system. The ground-base cellular system is designed for people driving or moving slowly on the ground and assumes that each user is only able to communicate with a handful of antennas. These antenna locations then agree which one has the strongest signal from the user and then carry the communication. An individual in an aircraft flying over a city could literally tie up one channel each in over a hundred antennas and this could cause a great deal of inefficiency and near paralysis in the ground cellular system. For this reason, and for the concern about aircraft navigation, it is a violation of federal law to use a cell phone in an aircraft.
Nevertheless, our society has grown so accustomed to the use of the cellular phones that aircraft passengers frequently use th ...

This invention relates generally to telematics systems. In particular the invention relates to a method and system for providing a telematics readiness mode.
Telematics units enable a service provider access to information regarding a subscriber"s vehicle. The service provider or the subscriber either through telematics unit input or a telephone call placed to a call center initiates information transfer. Currently the subscriber does not have a method for interacting with the call center without placing a service call and communicating with the service provider.
Situations exist where a subscriber anticipates the necessity of contacting a call center and wants the telematics unit to be ready if that need arises. Subscribers may experience a flat tire, vehicle breakdown, or other trouble that leaves them stranded in a strange place while they wait for help or try to fix the problem themselves. This could be on a deserted road, during the night, or in an unknown location. Additionally, while refueling, a subscriber must exit their vehicle and stand outside the vehicle for extended periods of time. If assistance is then required, actions are required in order to initiate contact. In an emergency, these methods may not be possible or feasible.
