  • Patent number: 11990066
    Abstract: A heads-up display system for a vehicle includes a display area on a surface of the vehicle and an optical projection unit for projecting graphic elements to the display area. An electronic control unit is operatively connected for computer communication to the optical projection unit. The electronic control unit determines a perspective view of a real road scene from a user while the user views the real road scene through the display area based on a ride height of the vehicle and an eyepoint of the user. The electronic control unit identifies road features that are visible to the user in the perspective view of the real road scene and adjusts a virtual image having inclined content based on the road features so that the inclined content substantially matches the perspective of the real road scene. Further, the electronic control unit controls the optical projection unit to project the virtual image to the display area.

  • Patent number: 11986964
    Abstract: A path determination device and so forth are provided which can determine a path of a robot such that an autonomous mobile robot smoothly moves to a destination while avoiding an interference with a traffic participant even under a traffic environment such as a crowd. A path determination device (1) determines a temporary moving velocity command v_cnn, by using a CNN, such that an interference between a robot (2) and a traffic participant is avoided and determines a moving velocity command v of the robot (2), by using a DWA, such that in a case where the robot (2) is assumed to move from a present position by the temporary moving velocity command v_cnn, an objective function G(v) including a distance dist to the traffic participant closest to the robot (2) and the temporary moving velocity command v_cnn of the robot (2) as independent variables becomes a maximum value.

  • Patent number: 11988337
    Abstract: A gas control system includes a high pressure tank, a temperature sensor, a pressure sensor, an injector, and a gas control ECU. The high pressure tank includes a liner, a reinforcing layer, and a discharge hole for discharging hydrogen gas from the liner. The temperature sensor detects the temperature of the reinforcing layer or the temperature around the outside of the high pressure tank. In the implementation of the gas control method, the gas control ECU, based on temperature information detected by the temperature sensor and pressure information detected by the pressure sensor, changes the timing of starting limiting control for limiting the discharge of hydrogen gas.
