TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's Sharp Corp <6753.T> said on Wednesday it has signed a licensing agreement with Daimler <DAIGn.DE> as it settled a patent infringement lawsuit against the German automaker over in-vehicle mobile communications technology.

The Japanese electronics firm won the patent dispute in a ruling last month by a German court that allowed Sharp to enforce a sales ban against Daimler under certain conditions.
