    Abstract: The invention obtains a straddle-type vehicle information processor and a straddle-type vehicle information processing method capable of recognizing that a traveling straddle-type vehicle enters a falling phase with a high degree of accuracy at appropriate timing and thereby contributes to improvement in occupant safety. A straddle-type vehicle information processor 10 includes: a posture information acquisition section 11 that at least acquires a roll rate Rr and a yaw rate Ry generated in a traveling straddle-type vehicle 1 as posture information; and a falling phase recognition section 12 that recognizes that the straddle-type vehicle 1 enters a falling phase in the case where a change in a degree of instability over time, which is derived at least on the basis of the roll rate Rr and the yaw rate Ry, shows an increasing tendency.

  • Patent number: 11360204
    Abstract: A method for a MIMO radar system includes encoding signals that are transmitted from different transmitting antennas according to code blocks; determining for a radar object a Doppler estimation that has a periodic ambiguity; and resolving the periodic ambiguity, where the resolving includes, for each of multiple ambiguity hypotheses of the Doppler shift: compensating for the Doppler shift according to the respective ambiguity hypothesis, and decoding for separating signal components associated with the transmitting antennas. An ambiguity hypothesis that is applicable to the radar object is selected based on quality criteria for the decoding for the particular ambiguity hypotheses, and an unambiguous speed estimation of the radar object is determined corresponding to the Doppler estimation and the selected ambiguity hypothesis. The quality of an angle estimation based on the signal components can be determined as a quality criterion for the decoding.
