Vehicle control system

A vehicle control system is provided to improve a response and an acceleration feel of a vehicle having a continuously variable transmission. The vehicle control system is configured to control an output power of a prime mover and a speed ratio of a transmission in such a manner that an actual driving force is increased stepwise to the required driving force to be achieved by a kick-downshifting so as to temporarily hold an increase in an acceleration during execution of the kick-downshifting..

A multiple vane roto-dynamic variable displacement kinetic system

A multiple vane kinetic system that produces variation in enclosed volumes between pairs of radial vane sets independent of each other and coaxial with a central axis within a annular casing that encapsulates the vane sets and operates in a sequence where the vane sets function as rotating links of the mechanism for a pellicular period, which is preceeded and succeeded by another period where either vane sets successively alternate between being a fixed link and a rotating link of the mechanism and during the former period the volumes between vanes remain constant as long as the vane sets have equal angular velocities, otherwise varies at rates proportional to differing angular velocities. The two time periods are controlled by timing devices actuating the vane sets to be coupled and decoupled with a power shaft and the variation in length of the two time periods makes roto-dynamic variable displacement machine..

Glue trap barrier

This patent describes a longer/variable length glue trap barrier that consists of multiple substrates connected to one another by perforation, each with a layer of non-drying glue extending completely from end to end along the longest dimension of the substrate. The barrier can be sized to fit a desired space by tearing along the perforation, and multiple barriers can be attached to one another for extended length and custom configurations.

Wedgelet-based coding concept

Wedgelet-based coding in conjunction with the usage of coding blocks of varying size is rendered more efficient by the usage of a variable length coded syntax element having a prefix and a suffix, wherein the size of the suffix is dependent on the prefix and the size of the current coding block. By this measure, it is feasible to efficiently adapt the length of the variable-length coded syntax element which controls the bi-partitioning of the current coding block to the actual needs, namely the size, of the current coding block, and the variability of the bi-partitioning by varying the wedglet separation line, respectively.
