Systems and methods for collision computing for detection and noninvasive measurement of blood glucose and other substances and events

A collision-computing system detects and amplifies the energy associated with a feature signal to determine occurrences or absence of events, such as ultrasonic and/or geophysical events, or to determine presence and/or concentrations of substances such as blood glucose, toxic chemicals, etc., in a noisy, high-clutter environment or sample. To this end, a conditioned feature, obtained by modulating a carrier kernel with a feature signal, is collided with a zyoton—a waveform that without a collision can travel substantially unperturbed in a propagation medium over a specified distance.

Vehicle door outer handle structure

A door opening prevention mechanism includes a lever member rotatable relative to a base member and swingable in a vehicle inside-and-outside direction, and an urging member to bias the lever member toward a set position. The lever member is held in the set position when an outer handle is located in a door closing position when a given inertial force does not act in a vehicle outside direction during a vehicle collision, and swings in the vehicle outside direction from the set position to be moved to a locked position against an urging force of the urging member when the inertial force acts.

Enclosed drone use thereof

An unmanned aerial vehicle apparatus (100) that includes an air vehicle assembly (150) that is at least partially enclosed within a protective enclosure assembly (120) the protective enclosure assembly (120) is typically at least partially elastic, to protect the air vehicle assembly (150) from bumps, collisions, and other similar occurrences. The enclosure assembly (120) can also facilitate the ability of the apparatus (100) to operate in a ground movement mode (114), such as a rolling mode (116), in addition to a flying mode (112)..


Vehicles having a cross-vehicle stabilizing structure

Vehicle structures for dissipating energy associated with a collision are described herein. In one embodiment, a vehicle includes a first side support extending in a vehicle longitudinal direction, a second side support extending in the vehicle longitudinal direction and spaced apart from the first side support in a vehicle lateral direction that is transverse to the vehicle longitudinal direction, and a cross-vehicle stabilizing structure extending between the first side support and the second side support, the cross-vehicle stabilizing structure including a first joint portion coupled to the first side support, the first joint portion including a stiffness-reducing portion positioned within a perimeter of the first joint portion, a second joint portion coupled to the second side support, and a cross-vehicle stabilizer portion coupled to the first joint portion and the second joint portion..

Method for operating a motor vehicle when changing lanes, and motor vehicle

The invention relates to a method for operating a motor vehicle when changing lanes on a roadway consisting of at least three lanes, with the steps: detection by a monitoring system in the vehicle of an impending lane change of the motor vehicle from a first lane to an adjoining second lane; detection of an impending lane change by another vehicle from a third lane that adjoins the second lane, to the second lane; the monitoring system determining whether a collision with the other vehicle threatens if the vehicle changes lanes; as soon as a threatened collision is determined, a warning signal is issued by a warning device and/or the motor vehicle is influenced in its lateral motion by a driver assistance system of the vehicle. In addition, it relates to a motor vehicle with a monitoring system..

Method and device for avoiding a possible subsequent collision and for reducing the accident consequences of a collision

A method and a device for avoiding a possible subsequent collision and for reducing the accident consequences of a collision, in which after a first collision of the vehicle with a further road user has taken place, an automatic braking intervention by a vehicle safety system is released according to a braking model by ascertaining vehicle data from the handling of the host vehicle, buffering the vehicle data ascertained in a memory, inferring the category of the road being traveled on at the moment from the buffered vehicle data, determining an initial distance as a function of the road category determined, and ascertaining the condition for releasing the brake using this initial distance.. .

Adjustment of vuv emission of a plasma via collisional resonant energy transfer to an energy absorber gas

Disclosed are methods of adjusting the emission of vacuum ultraviolet (vuv) radiation from a plasma in a semiconductor processing chamber. The methods may include generating a plasma in the processing chamber which includes a vuv-emitter gas and a collisional energy absorber gas, and adjusting the emission of vuv radiation from the plasma by altering the concentration ratio of the vuv-emitter gas to collisional energy absorber gas in the plasma.

Light-sound warning system for participants in road traffic

Light-sound warning system of all participants in road traffic is disclosed which solves the problem of safe and reliable signaling of a pedestrian on the road. A driver who saw a pedestrian on the road activates the switch which transmits the information to other vehicles via radio signals, and signals to pedestrians with light and audio signals that there is a vehicle approaching.
