  • US Patent:
    7349783, Mar 25, 2008
  • Filed:
    Jun 9, 2005
  • Appl. No.:
    11/150730
  • Inventors:
    Robert J. Cashler - Kokomo IN,

  • Assignee:
    Delphi Technologies, Inc. - Troy MI
  • International Classification:
    G06F 19/00
    B60R 21/16
  • US Classification:
    701 45, 280735
  • Abstract:
    A supplemental restraint deployment method utilizes measured vehicle speed and acceleration and the output of a closing velocity sensor that detects the presence and closing rate of an approaching object prior to contact with the vehicle. The closing velocity and vehicle speed are utilized for classification of an impending crash event, where the deployment options vary depending on the crash classification. In the ensuing crash event, a classification-dependent algorithm is executed to determine if, when and what level of restraint deployment is warranted based on measures of actual crash severity. Additionally, the algorithm is reset when the calculated change in vehicle velocity reaches the initial closing velocity.

  • US Patent:
    7523679, Apr 28, 2009
  • Filed:
    May 11, 2007
  • Appl. No.:
    11/801980
  • Inventors:
    Kevin J. Hawes - Greentown IN,
    Morgan D. Murphy - Kokomo IN,
    Walter K. Kosiak - Kokomo IN,
  • Assignee:
    Delphi Technologies, Inc. - Troy MI
  • International Classification:
    G01L 1/00
    B60R 21/33
  • US Classification:
    73862381, 200 5 A, 280735
  • Abstract:
    A switch-based sensor apparatus is disposed between the bottom cushion and frame of a seat. The sensor apparatus includes upper and lower rigid and generally parallel force translation plates biased apart by a set of springs, and a switch assembly. The force translation plates are joined so as to pre-load the springs while permitting closing movement between the upper and lower force translation plates in response to occupant seat force that exceeds the pre-load force of the springs. The switch assembly includes a circuit board and elastomeric switch pad defining one or more switch elements that are actuated by a prescribed closing movement between the upper and lower force translation plates for electrically detecting the presence of a seat occupant.

  • Filed:
    Mar 4, 1996
  • Appl. No.:
    8/610021

  • Assignee:
    Delco Electronics Corporation - Kokomo IN
  • International Classification:
    B60Q 100
  • US Classification:
    340436
  • Abstract:
    An analog signal processing system for determining airbag deployment includes a first low pass filter receiving a conditioned analog accelerometer signal and providing an analog acceleration signal therefrom. A first comparator/latch circuit receives the analog acceleration signal and provides a first signal to a logic circuit. The analog acceleration signal is further provided to a first integrator which converts the signal to a first velocity signal and provides the first velocity signal to a second comparator/latch circuit which provides a second logic level signal to the logic circuit. A second low pass filter receives the analog acceleration signal and provides a low frequency analog acceleration signal to a third comparator/latch circuit which provides a third signal to the logic circuit. The low frequency analog acceleration signal is further received by a second integrator circuit which converts the signal to a second velocity signal and provides the second velocity signal to a fourth comparator/latch circuit which provides a fourth signal to the logic circuit. The logic circuit performs a logic operation on the various logic level signals to provide an airbag deployment signal therefrom.
  • Crankshaft Angular Position Detecting Apparatus

    view source
  • US Patent:
    51196700, Jun 9, 1992
  • Filed:
    Jan 2, 1991
  • Appl. No.:
    7/635848
  • Inventors:
    Michael L. Whitehorn - Kokomo IN
    Mark C. Hansen - Ann Arbor MI
    Walter K. Kosiak - Kokomo IN
  • Assignee:
    Delco Electronics Corporation - Kokomo IN
  • International Classification:
    G01M 1500
  • US Classification:
    73116
  • Abstract:
    Apparatus for developing digital signals that respectively represent a plurality of different angular positions of the crankshaft of an internal combustion engine. The crankshaft drives two slotted wheels that are each associated with a sensor. Two pulse trains are developed. The first pulse train is a series of equally angularly spaced pulses. The second pulse train is comprised of a plurality of angularly spaced window pulses of different widths. Pulse falling edges of the first pulse train are counted over the duration of the windows of the second pulse train to develop digital signals that represent angular positions of the crankshaft. The system prevents edge counting until a valid edge of window pulse is detected.

  • US Patent:
    48361755, Jun 6, 1989
  • Filed:
    Aug 1, 1988
  • Appl. No.:
    7/226711
  • Inventors:
    Mark C. Hansen - Kokomo IN
    Walter K. Kosiak - Lafayette IN
  • Assignee:
    Delco Electronics Corporation - Kokomo IN
  • International Classification:
    F02P 3045
  • US Classification:
    123609
  • Abstract:
    A control circuit for developing a digital signal for use in a closed loop dwell control of an electronic internal combustion engine ignition system. The circuit has a ramp counter and a down-counter. The ramp counter counts-up clock pulses for a period of time beginning when the primary winding of an ignition coil is energized and ending when primary winding current increases to a sensed current limit value. When current limit is reached, the most significant bits of the count in the ramp counter are loaded into the down-counter. The ramp counter is now counted-up and the down-counter is counted-down until the down-counter underflows. The final or ultimate count magnitude in the ramp counter is equal to the count attained by the ramp counter between energization of the primary winding and attainment of current limit added to a fixed percentage of the count attained by the ramp counter.

  • US Patent:
    54593980, Oct 17, 1995
  • Filed:
    Dec 17, 1993
  • Appl. No.:
    8/168298

    Mark C. Hansen - Ann Arbor MI
    Roger D. Allison - Kokomo IN

    Walter K. Kosiak - Kokomo IN
  • Assignee:
    Delco Electronics Corporation - Kokomo IN
  • International Classification:
    G01F 3489
  • US Classification:
    324166
  • Abstract:
    An adaptive threshold circuit for use with a magnetic type of sensor that has a pick-up coil. The pick-up coil has an alternating voltage induced therein when a slot formed in a wheel rotates past the sensor. The circuit produces a square wave pulse voltage during positive half-cycles of the voltage generated in the pick-up coil. The circuit includes a digital to analog converter the input of which is connected to a pulse counter. The output of the converter is a function of the count magnitude in the counter and provides a variable threshold voltage that is compared by a voltage comparator with a voltage that is a function of the magnitude of the voltage generated in the pick-up coil. The circuit has an input circuit connected to the pick-up coil that includes a voltage attenuating circuit and a diode. The pulse count of the counter is, at times, incremented under control of a comparator that compares the output voltage of the converter with a voltage that is a function of the magnitude of the voltage generated in the pick-up coil.
