A safety system for a vehicle comprises a sensing means which is arranged to determine the presence of a preceding vehicle and, where present, to produce at least one first output signal representative of one or more characteristics of the preceding vehicle, the sensing means also being arranged to determine the presence of an oncoming vehicle and, where present, to produce at least one second output signal representative of one or more characteristics of the oncoming vehicle, and a controller which is arranged to receive the output signals from the sensing means, and from the signals to generate a result signal indicative that it is possible for the vehicle to safely overtake the preceding vehicle before the oncoming vehicle blocks the path along which the vehicle must travel to complete the overtaking maneuver. The controller determines if it is safe to overtake by generating from the output signals and optionally vehicle information a target line representing a distal most boundary of a zone within which the vehicle will move back into lane after completing the overtake, and determine whether the oncoming vehicle will have crossed the target line before the overtake could be completed and also to determine if the target line is set to safe distance in front of the vehicle that is to be overtaken at the predicted end of the overtake maneuver.


A printed circuit board comprises an optically readable code with product information. The information is encoded in code locations which are distributed over the printed circuit board at different positions.


The invention relates to a module cover (40) for an airbag (10) and/or an airbag module for arranging under a vehicle roof (56), in particular in the region of an upper windshield pane edge. The module cover (40) comprises a module cover panel (41) with a rear face (42) which faces towards the vehicle roof (56) when in use and a front face (43) which faces away from the vehicle roof (56) when in use. According to the invention, the module cover panel (41) comprises an elongated gap section (44), which is preferably formed over the entire width (B) of the module cover panel (41), in the form of an elongated indentation (45), which is formed in the front face (43) of the module cover panel (41).

A telescopic steering column assembly comprises an upper and a lower shroud portion (1, 2) able to move relatively during telescopic adjustment, a telescopic steering shaft (3, 4) that passes through and is supported by the shroud portions (1, 2) through at least one support bearing assembly (7, 8) that acts between an upper portion (4) of the telescopic steering shaft (3, 4) and a lower portion of the shroud (2) that move relative to one another axially during telescopic adjustment. The at least one support bearing assembly (7, 8) comprises a first bearing race which is separate from the shroud portions (1, 2) and the steering shaft (3, 4), a resilient spacer (12) that applies a biasing force that is directed in a radial direction from the axis of the shaft (3, 4) and that is located between the first race and an adjacent face of one of the lower shroud portion (2) and the upper shaft portion (3); a set of bearings (11), and a cage (10) that locates the bearings (11) relative to the first bearing race (9). The bearings (11) bear onto a second bearing race that is defined by a surface of the other one of the lower shroud portion (2) and the upper shaft portion (3), the second bearing face permitting the bearings (11) to slide or roll in the direction of adjustment of the steering column assembly when it is adjusted for reach.


.A rotor structure for an interior permanent magnet electric motor comprising: A laminated rotor core which comprises stack of thin plates, the stack having a first end and a second end, each plate in the stack including at least one window which is aligned with a corresponding window of an adjacent plate so that the windows together form an elongate pocket that extends along at least a part of the length of the core starting at a first end of the core, and At least one permanent magnet located in the pocket. At least one plate at the first end of the stack includes an integral retention feature which projects away from a main body of the plate to project above the window in the plate and which engages the first end of the magnet thereby to retain the magnet in the pocket.

A combined angular position and torque sensor assembly for use in an electric power assisted steering system comprises an input part for connection to an upper column shaft, an output part for connection to a lower column shaft, a torsion bar that interconnects the input shaft and the output shaft, a first and second upper column angular position sensing means that each produce at least one output signal that is dependent on the angular position of the upper column shaft; and a processing means which produces a first torque signal indicative of the torque carried by the torsion bar. The processing means further includes means for producing a first absolute angular position signal by processing the output signals of the first and secondary sensors in a first way and a second absolute angular position signal processing the output of the same two sensors in a different way, and further comprises a cross


The invention relates to a method for folding an airbag (10), in particular an airbag (10) to be arranged under a vehicle roof (50), comprising a supply opening (11), a guide section (13) arranged connecting thereto in the longitudinal direction, and an inflation section (12) arranged connecting to the guide section (13) in the longitudinal direction, wherein the method comprises the following steps: spreading out the airbag (10) flat; laterally folding of at least sections, in particular fanfolding of at least one side part (30, 30) of the airbag (10) in the direction of the longitudinal axis (L) of the airbag (10); rolling up of the inflation section (12) at least in sections, starting from an end edge (26) of the airbag (10) which is farthest from the supply opening (11) in a first rolling direction (AR) in the direction of the supply opening (11); forming of the guide section (13) by laying at least one fold with a first fold bend (14) counter to the first rolling direction (AR) in such a way that the unfolding behaviour of the airbag (10) is influenced.

A transceiver circuit includes a signal generator arranged to generate an output signal; a transmitter coupled to the signal generator so as to transmit the output signal; a receiver arranged to receive a received signal; a mixer coupled to the receiver and to the signal generator so as to mix the output signal and the received signal so as to produce a mixed signal; and at least one filter coupled to the mixer so as to act upon the mixed signal to produce a filtered signal. The filtered signal includes an unwanted portion of the output signal is received at the receiver without having been reflected from a target. The transceiver circuit further includes a correction circuit arranged to generate a simulated waveform that simulates the behavior of the each filter to the unwanted portion of the output signal and applies a correction so as to remove the simulated waveform from the filtered signal.
