A system and method for manufacturing a micropillar array (20). A carrier (11) is provided with a layer of metal ink (20i). A high energy light source (14) irradiates the metal ink (20i) via a mask (13) between the carrier (11) and the light source. The mask is configured to pass a cross-section illuminated image of the micropillar array onto the metal ink (20i), thereby causing a patterned sintering of the metal ink (20i) to form a first subsection layer (21) of the micropillar array (20) in the layer of metal ink (20i). A further layer of the metal ink (20i) is applied on top of the first subsection layer (21) of the micropillar array (20) and irradiated via the mask (13) to form a second subsection layer (21) of the micropillar array on top.

WO/2016/080834 AUTOMATICALLY ADJUSTABLE MIRROR ASSEMBLY||WO||26.05.2016|
||PCT/NL2015/050811||MCI (MIRROR CONTROLS INTERNATIONAL) NETHERLANDS B.V. ||HUIJZERS, Bastiaan |
An adjustable vehicle mirror assembly uses a revolution sensor for detecting revolutions of an element in a mirror rotation drive chain. A control circuit uses the revolution sensor control rotation of the mirror to a preset orientation by counting revolutions and controlling a motor power supply and its direction dependent on whether the count indicates that the count of revolutions has reached a preset value. At power down, power up or when a new preset value is defined the control circuit switches to an overrule state in order to calibrate an offset. The control circuit continues operating in the overrule state until a rotation coupling in the mirror assembly reaches a disengaged state or stalls.
