  • Patent number: 7317980
    Abstract: When a vehicle stops, a brake control unit maintains a braking force applied on a wheel by a braking-force application unit for maintaining a halted state. In this state, if a driver depresses the accelerator pedal to execute starting of the vehicle, the braking force is gradually decreased, and the vehicle starts at a speed that accords with a degree of accelerator opening and a gradient of a road on which the vehicle is stopped. When a movement direction at this time is the same as a movement direction intended by the driver, the braking force is decreased to zero for smooth starting. When the movement direction is opposite to the intended movement direction, the braking force is increased to control the movement in the opposite direction, such that the movement changes from the opposite direction to the same direction, and finally, smooth starting in the desired direction is executed.

  • Patent number: 7299118
    Abstract: An occupant protection apparatus appropriately protects occupants of a vehicle, when a vehicle crush occurs, without requiring a troublesome task to the occupants. The occupant protection apparatus is provided with a steering angle sensor, a distance sensor and a brake depressing amount sensor. An electronic control unit predicts a vehicle crash based on the detection signals of each sensor so as to set a tension applied to a driver seat seatbelt to be smaller than a tension applied to passenger seat seatbelts. Additionally, the electronic control unit increases the tension applied to the seatbelts when a temperature detected by an outside-temperature detection sensor and/or an inside-temperature detection sensor is low.

  • Patent number: 7295906
    Abstract: A vehicle stability control device for reducing and/or canceling a yaw moment owing to the imbalance in longitudinal forces between the left and right wheels of the vehicle by automatically steering wheels. The control device estimates a longitudinal force difference-caused yaw moment and a vertical load shift-caused yaw moment exerted on the vehicle body. A steering apparatus is operated to apply on the vehicle body a counter yaw moment obtained by eliminating a contribution of the vertical load shift-caused yaw moment from a counter yaw moment calculated from the longitudinal force difference-caused yaw moment.

  • Patent number: 7289891
    Abstract: A method is for operating a vehicle of a magnetic levitation railway on a route which is fitted with a stator with a stator winding. There is provision for the time profile of the strength of the current to be measured in each provided supply phase of the stator winding. In addition, in the region of the respective supply phase on the route, the time profile of the magnetic flux of the magnetic leakage field emanating from the vehicle is measured. The force acting on the vehicle is then determined from current strength values, assigned magnetic fluxes and a motor constant of the vehicle. The force which is determined is compared with a threshold value and when the force deviates greatly the energy supply to the stator winding is interrupted.

  • Patent number: 7286920
    Abstract: Satellite sensors are disposed in both sidewalls of a vehicle; each of the satellite sensors detects as an acceleration a collision of an obstruction with the corresponding sidewall. A floor G sensor is disposed in a central portion of the vehicle for detecting as an acceleration a collision of an obstruction with either of both the sidewalls. A two-dimensional correlational map is produced to have two parameters of an acceleration detected by the satellite sensor and speed variation derived from an acceleration detected by the floor G sensor. A collision determining threshold line is set on the correlational map. When a tracking line crosses the threshold line from the side containing the original point to the other side, a collision occurrence of a given pattern requiring activation of an occupant protection device is determined.

  • Patent number: 7283895
    Abstract: A method and device for calculating a target speed of an aircraft may include a flight point time determining section that determines when the aircraft actually gets to a particular flight point, taking account of the aircraft's current target speed. A time interval calculating section calculates a time interval between the predetermined time at which the aircraft must get to the particular flight point and the determined actual time. A speed updating section updates the target speed and applies the updated target speed to the aircraft if the calculated time interval is greater than a duration of comparison, which is variable and depends on the actual distance so as to decrease when the actual distance decreases.
