  • Publication number: 20200238985
    Abstract: An autonomous driving system mounted on a vehicle determines a target path based on necessary information and performs vehicle travel control such that the vehicle follows the target path. A first coordinate system is a vehicle coordinate system at a first timing when the necessary information is acquired. A second coordinate system is a vehicle coordinate system at a second timing later than the first timing. The autonomous driving system calculates, based on the necessary information acquired at the first timing, a first target path defined in the first coordinate system. Then, the autonomous driving system corrects the first target path to a second target path defined in the second coordinate system by performing coordinate transformation from the first coordinate system to the second coordinate system. The autonomous driving system uses the second target path as the target path to perform the vehicle travel control.

  • Publication number: 20200185651
    Abstract: A first light-emitting element and a second light-emitting element that have a resonance structure that causes output light from a light-emission functional layer to resonate between a reflective layer and a semi-transmissive reflective layer, and a pixel definition layer, and in which an aperture part is formed to correspond to each of the first light-emitting element and the second light-emitting element, are formed on a base. A first interval between the reflective layer and the semi-transmissive reflective layer in the first light-emitting element and a second interval between the reflective layer and the semi-transmissive reflective layer in the second light-emitting element are different, and a film thickness of the pixel definition layer is less than a difference between the first interval and the second interval.

  • Patent number: 10498203
    Abstract: A laminated rotor core (36) wherein permanent magnets (47) are inserted in respective magnet insertion holes (46) is disposed between and pressed by an upper die (37) and a lower die (29). The upper die (37) has resin reservoir pots (50) provided above the laminated rotor core (36) and at positions corresponding to the respective magnet insertion holes (46). Raw resin material put in the resin reservoir pots (50) is heated by the upper die (37). Subsequently, the resin material in a liquefied state is ejected from the resin reservoir pots (50) by plungers (52) that are inserted and moves vertically in the resin reservoir pots (50) and is directly filled in the magnet insertion holes (46). Consequently, the respective magnet insertion holes (46) are filled with the resin material more evenly and highly reliable products can be supplied at low cost.

  • Publication number: 20190176645
    Abstract: A target value obtaining section obtains a target value for the difference in rotational motion between a first motor and a second motor and a target value for output torque. A torque command value calculating section calculates a torque command value for the first motor and a torque command value for the second motor that achieve both of the target value for the difference in rotational motion and the target value for the output torque by using an inverse model of a motion model corresponding to a merging system.
