Lear Corporation | Date: 2016-10-11

Seats and methods for controlling a seat are described. A position of the users leg is sensed relative to the position of the front of the seat. A determination is made as to if the position of the users leg from a front of the seat is greater than a gap minimum. If the gap is greater than the gap minimum, a cushion length extender portion of the seat is moved until the sensed position is less than or equal to the gap minimum. In an example, the remainder of seat base is held in a fixed position within the vehicle environment. The gap minimum can be with the cushion length extender portion in slight contact with the users leg. The sensor can be at a front face of seat. The sensor can be on the cushion length extender portion of the seat.

A non-transitory computer readable medium with computer executable instructions stored thereon executed by a processor in a vehicle comprising a wireless local area network interface and a wireless cellular network interface provides a communication method. The method comprises automatically initiating a first transport protocol session between said mobile router and said mobile device over said wireless local area network interface; and automatically initiating a second transport protocol session between said mobile router and said destination device over said wireless cellular network interface, said second transport protocol session comprising a cellular network layer and a wide area network layer. The cellular network layer and the wide area network layer are monitored to detect if the wide area network layer or the cellular network layer is interrupted. After detecting an interruption in the second transport protocol session, the first transport protocol is maintained session and the second transport protocol session is reestablished.

A non-transitory computer readable medium is provided with computer executable instructions stored thereon executable by a processor in a vehicle to provide a valet mode of operation method. The method comprises: capturing a current location of said vehicle as an initial location in response to a valet mode of operation being activated; monitoring locations of the vehicle while the valet mode of operation is activated; and determining if the vehicle has moved more than a predetermined distance from the initial location while said valet mode of operation is activated.


A passive entry passive start (PEPS) method for preventing relay attack includes detecting a distance of a wireless device to a vehicle based on a time of flight of an ultra-wideband (UWB) signal between the wireless device and a base station at the vehicle. The method further includes enabling by the base station a function of the vehicle only when the distance of the wireless device to the vehicle is within a zone of the vehicle.
