The present invention relates to a heads up display system for a vehicle interior that includes a light modifying panel configured to cyclically transition between a substantially light transmissive state that facilitates light passage through the light modifying panel and a partially reflective state that facilitates light reflection toward a occupant of a vehicle. The heads up display system also includes a pulsating light source configured to cyclically project an image onto the light modifying panel, and a controller configured to control the pulsating light source and the light modifying panel so that the image is projected onto the light modifying panel while the light modifying panel is in the partially reflective state.

A vehicle display assembly includes a three-dimensional (3D) display and a display control system configured to control a first output direction of a left-eye portion of an image and a second output direction of a right-eye portion of the image. In addition, the vehicle display assembly includes a camera assembly configured to monitor a position of a head of a vehicle occupant and a visual output of the 3D display. The vehicle display assembly further includes a 3D control system communicatively coupled to the camera assembly and to the display control system. The 3D control system is configured to determine an alignment calibration based on the position of the head of the vehicle occupant and the visual output, and to instruct the display control system to control the first and second output directions based on the position of the head of the vehicle occupant and the alignment calibration.

An extruded multi-port tube for use in a heat exchanger comprises a main body including an outer wall and a plurality of ports formed therein, each of the ports extending longitudinally from a first end of the main body to a second end thereof and configured to convey a first fluid therethrough. The outer wall of the main body includes at least one indentation formed therein. Each of the indentations is a portion of the outer wall deformed inwardly into a hollow interior of one of the ports and configured to increase a turbulence of the first fluid as it flows from the first end to the second end of the main body to increase a heat exchange efficiency of the heat exchanger having the tube.

A rotor for an electromagnetic clutch assembly includes a substantially cylindrical main body extending from a first end to a second end. The first end of the main body is configured to engage an armature of the electromagnetic clutch assembly and includes a first flange formed around a circumference thereof. The second end of the main body includes a second flange formed around a circumference thereof. One of the first flange or the second flange has a non-uniform cross-sectional shape as the one of the first flange or the second flange extends circumferentially around the main body, wherein the cross-sectional shape of the one of the first flange or the second flange taken through a plane extending parallel to an axis of rotation of the main body.

The present invention relates to a lubricating coating composition and a compressor including a sliding member coated with the lubricating coating composition. The lubricating coating composition comprises a thermosetting or thermoplastic polyimide-based resin as a binder, a solid lubricant, various solvents and other additives at a controlled ratio so as to improve the abrasion resistance, seizure resistance, lubricating ability, heat resistance, adhesion to a substrate, and flexibility of the composition, and thus does not cause seizure even when CO_(2) gas is used as a refrigerant.

The UK Connected and Intelligent Transport Environment (UK CITE) creates a real-world-lab for companies to test how connected and autonomous vehicles (CAV) can interact with communications infrastructure (so called V2X). The project will install the relevant infrastructure along sections of the M42, M40, A45, A46 and Coventry city centre. This test environment will be available to other vehicle manufacturers or fleet users who wish to test V2X technologies. It will act as a world class research asset to attract R&D to the UK. CAV test vehicles will examine the impact of V2X on road safety, traffic flow and the ability to provide other services like WiFi. Cyber-security will also be included from the outset. V2X will improve a vehicles journey through the road network. E.g. in case of an accident instead of an expensive gantry on the motorway a connected car could provide warnings and guidance to the driver, or an autonomous vehicle could respond automatically. The impact on the UK road network will be simulated based on these trials - enabling the UK to get the most benefits from CAV for the least infrastructure cost.
