  • Patent number: 11904859
    Abstract: The present invention obtains a controller and a control method capable of achieving appropriate cornering during cruise control of a straddle-type vehicle. In the controller and the control method according to the present invention, during the cruise control, in which acceleration/deceleration of the straddle-type vehicle is automatically controlled without relying on an accelerating/decelerating operation by a driver, a vehicle speed of the straddle-type vehicle is restricted to be equal to or lower than an upper limit speed at the time of turning, an exit of a curved road is detected on the basis of a predicted route of the straddle-type vehicle, and a magnitude of the deceleration of the decelerated straddle-type vehicle is reduced at a time point before the straddle-type vehicle reaches the exit.

  • Patent number: 11907550
    Abstract: A method for dynamically assigning memory bandwidth to multiple processor units, which are connected via a data connection to a shared memory unit. In an initialization phase, each of the multiple processor units are assigned an initial value of a usable memory bandwidth, and a permissible range for a mean usage of the memory bandwidth is determined. Subsequently, the assigned memory bandwidths are checked repeatedly and adjusted if needed, a present value of a mean usage of the memory bandwidth by the multiple processor units being determined, and, if this present value is outside the permissible range, the values of the usable memory bandwidth are adjusted for at least a part of the multiple processor units.
