State of the art
Acoustic signals for electronics
A2017-007 | Alexander Strauß
The invention is based on acoustic signals that can be generated by electronics when powered. The sounds are generated by components which are required for normal operation but not intended for sound generation.
Low-Capacitance Design for Operation of LEDs
G2016-016 | Uwe Nieberlein, Günther Köninger
Glow effects may occur on LED (Light Emitting Diode) light devices operated in an AC network – especially with sinusoidal voltage supply – when in "off" state, i.e. when the light devices are switched off and therefore should be dark.
TC Rotary Knob with slider Sensor
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
A2017-016 | Piotr Kijewski
This idea suggests an optical transfer system. The optical transfer system transmits an image of a display located behind electronics of a front panel to the surface of a knob located on the front panel.
Pitch-washing-controlled washing machine
A2017-006 | Georg Arnold
A device is proposed by means of which the slope of a washing machine drum can be adjusted.
Connector 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
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
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
J2017-001 | Harald Marzari
The technical solution proposed deals with a device and procedure for defusing duds. Newly developed fuse concepts are usually tested in firing trials.
Thermal Analysis of environmental conditions
H2015-011 | Dr. Guy Bach, Christophe Munck
La présente invention concerne le domaine des dispositifs et appareils qui sont installés et qui doivent fonctionner correctement dans des environnements très variés, notamment en termes de température.
Possibility to detect freezing-risks
H2015-010 | Dr. Guy Bach, Christophe Munck
Certains appareils contenant de l'eau ne supportent pas le gel. Si cela arrive ils éclatent. C'est notamment le cas des compteurs d'eau. L'invention permet de calculer le risque de gel et éventuellement d'envoyer un signal d'alarme.
Precalculation of receive window
H2017-029 | Dr. Petra Joppich-Dohlus, Thomas Blank, Stefan Schmitz, Achim Schmidt
Procedure for precalculating the expected receive window of a bidirectional meter on the data concentrator.
Personalization of operating steps
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
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
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
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.
Temperature-resistant fuze for projectiles
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.
Condensed water prevention for touch control
A2013-036 | Pawel Meller
The technical solution approach comprises an additional gasket between a touch foil and a ceramic glass. This additional component is placed in such a way that no air gaps occur during the assembly, so that no moisture can reach the sensible touch sensor area.
System with safety mechanism
B2014-023 | Dr. Florian Gagel, Dr. Winfried Rappold
This invention concerns a safety-critical system which comprises at least two physically separate units connected to each other, with at least one additional safety mechanism against unauthorized access and manipulation by unauthorized third parties.
Forecast of the battery lifetime
G2013-012 | Trong Tran
The technical solution approach concerns a procedure or algorithm for forecasting storage battery lifetime.
