  • Publication number: 20190308527
    Abstract: In a vehicle seat, a second parallel link mechanism is actuated in order to adjust an vertical position of a seat body with respect to a vehicle body, such that a first parallel link mechanism is moved up or down together with the seat body with respect to the vehicle body. In order to recline a seatback as an integral unit with a seat cushion, the first parallel link mechanism and the second parallel link mechanism are actuated such that an upper link is maintained in a predetermined orientation. The upper link is restricted from rotating relative to the armrest, and so the armrest is also maintained in a predetermined orientation.

  • Patent number: 10435531
    Abstract: The present invention provides, for example, a silicone porous body having a porous structure with less cracks and a high proportion of void space as well as having a strength. The silicone porous body of the present invention includes silicon compound microporous particles, wherein the silicon compound microporous particles are chemically bonded by catalysis. For example, the abrasion resistance measured with BEMCOT® is in the range from 60% to 100%, and the folding endurance measured by the MIT test is 100 times or more. The silicone porous body can be produced, for example, by forming the precursor of the silicone porous body using sol containing pulverized products of a gelled silicon compound and then chemically bonding the pulverized products contained in the precursor of the silicone porous body. The chemical bond among the pulverized products is preferably a chemical crosslinking bond among the pulverized products, for example.

    Abstract: A construction machine that can easily regulate a set maximum flow rate at a time of replacement of an attachment and that can improve an energy conservation performance is provided. A controller selects a corresponding map in response to an attachment designation signal from among maps each of which sets a relationship between an operation signal per type of the attachment and a flow rate of a hydraulic fluid supplied to an actuator, generates a control signal by causing the selected map to refer to the operation signal, and controls a flow control valve of an attachment flow rate regulation valve device in such a manner that a position of the flow control valve is switched over from a neutral position on the basis of the control signal. An unloading valve that maintains a differential pressure across the flow control valve is disposed in the attachment flow rate regulation valve device.

  • Patent number: 10403097
    Abstract: To provide a gaming machine that can provide a novel game in which the game progression is varied, a method, and a program for providing a game. In the gaming machine 1, the symbol blocks B1 and B2 displayed in the block display region 66 move in the directions D1 and D2, which intersect in the direction of reel rotation, when moving in the symbol display region 60. That is, the symbol blocks B1 and B2 are added to the movement in the direction of reel rotation, and also move in a direction orthogonal to the direction of reel rotation. Therefore, compared to a case in which a symbol block moves in the direction of reel rotation, prediction by a player of the positions where the symbol blocks B1 and B2 are finally disposed is difficult.

  • Patent number: 10386455
    Abstract: A position detection system performs first through third processes to measure, using high-frequency signals, a position of a slave device in a measurement area surrounded by parent devices. The first process measures distances between the slave device and each of the master devices a plurality of times, to obtain a minimum value of each of the distances. The second process obtains a position of an intersection point of two arcs among arcs respectively having the minimum value of each of the distances as a radius from respective centers of the master devices when a number of intersection points of the two arcs within the measurement area is one. The third process regards a center of gravity of the intersection points as a true position of the slave device when the intersection points are densely arranged.
