    A2015-009 | Mathew Schwind

    A rotary knob utilizing capacitive sensing to detect the movement of an indexed ring is suggested. Consumers are interested in a knob with an integrated user interface. Preferably this knob shall be rotating. Further a knob with metal look and feel is preferred, as it gives a worthy appearance.

  • Fiber Optic Knob for a front panel

    A device is proposed by means of which the slope of a washing machine drum can be adjusted.

  • Connector with integrated temperature detection

    Connector with integrated temperature detectionConnector with integrated temperature detection

    A2015-015 | Andreas Brauchle, Simon Bihler

    A connector which is not placed correctly on a contact heats up and may catch fire. This risk is particularly high when high currents flow as is the case, for example, in electric-motor electronics.

  • sensor network for terrain surveillance

    sensor network for terrain surveillancesensor network for terrain surveillance

    B2017-011 | Andre Selz

    The proposed technical solution concerns a sensor network consisting of a variety of sensors for surveillance-relevant parameters, which can be placed in a terrain and are self-networking.

  • Appliance into special operation modes

    Appliance into special operation modesAppliance into special operation modes

    A2018-025 | Sascha Laue, Thomas Zodel, Tobias Hartmann

    This invention solves the problem of putting an appliance into demo mode, without the risk that the customer enables this mode by accident. Further it transfers and updates demo mode data to the appliance.

  • Device and procedure for defusing ouds

    A2017-020 | Tobias Hartmann

    The idea is based on a clear assignment of an operating step for a household appliance to a particular user.

  • Voice Control Device Selection

    Voice Control Device SelectionVoice Control Device Selection

    A2017-009 | Matthew Schwind

    The system determines which voice controlled device should respond to a user. This is determined by proximity of the user to the device. The system is decentralized where each device shares its data with all other devices and compares the data of all other devices.

  • Status of Household Appliance

    Status of Household ApplianceStatus of Household Appliance

    A2017-018 | Marcin Zajac

    The idea is to suggest a system which displays the status of a household appliance, e.g. an oven, a washer, a dryer, a dishwasher, a hob or so on. This offers the possibility to get an information about the appliance status through the lighting system. To receive this information no additional devices such as a mobile phone are necessary.

  • Protective Coating on an optical component

    Protective Coating on an optical componentProtective Coating on an optical component

    B2015-033 | Dr. Rudolf Schmid, Matthias Michael Welte, Robert Langer, Thomas Fiedler, Dr. Nicolai Künzner

    The technical solution approach concerns a procedure for the production of a protective coating on the surface of an optical component to protect it against impact or damage caused by environmental influences.

    J2014-002 | Martin Kernberger, Harald Marzari, Martin Leonhardt, Dr. Robert Hüttner, Egon Klaussner, Walter Grieb

    The technical solution approach describes a temperature-resistant fuze for projectiles with particularly long range and high velocity. Accordingly, temperature resistance, which is of particular importance for high velocities, is achieved through appropriate material selection and advantageous design of individual fuze areas.
