|20140275834||HEALTH MONITORING - One or more embodiments of techniques or systems for heath monitoring or monitoring one or more health parameters of a user are provided herein. Systems or components of a vehicle may monitor one or more vital or health parameters of an occupant of a vehicle, driver, passenger, etc. For example, a seat may have sensors embedded within that may measure characteristics or attributes associated with the occupant. In one example, a scale may be integrated with the seat to monitor a weight of an occupant on a day to day basis. As another example, a seatbelt or one or more portions of the seat may have heart rate monitors that check a heart rate of an occupant. Additionally, warnings or alerts may be provided when a signature is detected, such as an abnormal heart beat, etc. In this manner, health monitoring may be provided.||09-18-2014|
|20140270243||MOBILE DEVICE TO VEHICLE INTEGRATION - One or more embodiments of techniques or systems for mobile device to vehicle integration are provided herein. An armrest can include a docking station for a mobile device and an integration component can be configured to communicatively couple the mobile device with an input component, multimedia component, display component, fob component, warning component, etc. This integration enables an occupant of a vehicle to seamlessly interact with the mobile device through features of the vehicle, rather than through a mobile device interface. In one or more embodiments, mobile device data or mobile device applications are used to supplement integration, such as through voice commands, etc. For example, a warning can be provided if it is determined that the vehicle is speeding. As another example, personalized multimedia settings can be stored and programmed to the vehicle when the mobile device is docked.||09-18-2014|
|20140265479||SEAT ADJUSTMENT SYSTEM - Systems an methods of adjusting a seat in a vehicle are discussed. Such a system can include a vehicle seat that can have a plurality of adjustable aspects, such as a headrest, seat back, armrests, lumbar support, etc. The system can also include display component that can visually present one or more options associated with settings for the vehicle seat. Additionally, there can be an input component that can receive one or more selections of the one or more options, and there can be a control component that can determine one or more adjustments based at least in part on the one or more selections. The vehicle seat can adjust a subset of the plurality of aspects based at least in part on the one or more determined adjustments.||09-18-2014|
|20140265478||VEHICLE SEAT ADJUSTMENT INDICATOR - An adjustable seat indicating assembly is provided and includes a stationary component attached to a stationary part of an adjustable seat assembly, a movable component attached to a movable part of the adjustable seat assembly, and an indicating component that changes state upon an interaction between the stationary component and the movable component, wherein the indicating component indicates that the movable part of the seat is in a desired seating position.||09-18-2014|
|20140265419||SEAT SUSPENSION LOCKING APPARATUS - A locking apparatus for a seat assembly for a vehicle is provides and includes a latching component attached to one of a stationary part or a movable part of a seat assembly, a receiving component disposed on the other of the stationary part or the movable part of a seat assembly, wherein the latching component engages the receiving component, and an activation component that activates the latching component. Upon activation of the locking device, the latching component engages the receiving component thereby locking the movable part to the stationary part in a collapsed state thereby reducing vibrational noise caused by the movable part during operation of the vehicle.||09-18-2014|
|20140062725||SURFACE DETECTION AND INDICATOR - Systems and methods can discover and present to a user road conditions. A client can include sensors to measure local road conditions. Local road conditions can be measured by a sensor and reported to a server. The server can aggregate road condition information at least by location and time, and return the aggregated information to clients to facilitate presentation of road conditions not discovered locally. Information regarding road conditions at given times and locations can facilitate road maintenance coordination and route planning.||03-06-2014|
|20110119882||SYSTEM AND METHOD OF FORMING A PROTECTIVE COVERING FOR A WIRE HARNESS - A motion-powered liquid sprayer that can increase the number of rotations of the pump relative to each rotation of the wheel or axle is provided. The sprayer can include a gearing assembly that employs gears to increase the number of pump revolutions as a function of the wheel or axle rotation. The sprayer can also include a gear pump that employs an over-capacity or enhanced gullet together with blow-by spacing to control consistent liquid flow relative to variable motional velocities. Further, the sprayer can include a vertically adjustable nozzle as well as a free reverse rotation wheel hub.||05-26-2011|
|20090241331||System and Method of Forming a Protective Covering for a Wire Harness - A system and method for forming a wire harness covering having a predetermined three-dimensional geometry is provided. The system and method make use of a mold and a post-molding fixture. In a first phase, the mold is used during an injection molding process to form a substantially flat and partially-cured harness covering having an intermediate, substantially two-dimensional shape. In a second phase, the post-molding fixture is used after the injection molding process to orient the harness with covering to a predetermined three-dimensional geometry corresponding to the desired final shape.||10-01-2009|
