  • Publication number: 20210320503
    Abstract: A server for a charge-discharge system includes a controller. The controller is configured to communicate with a plurality of registered vehicles each equipped with a chargeable-dischargeable battery. The controller is configured to acquire information on a scheduled start time of a next travel of each of the registered vehicles. The controller is configured to acquire electric power information. The controller is configured to determine, based on the scheduled travel start time and the electric power information, a target vehicle of which the battery is to be charged or discharged from among the registered vehicles that are at least parked. The controller is configured to send to the target vehicle either a charge command that orders the battery of the target vehicle to be charged or a discharge command that orders the battery of the target vehicle to be discharged.

  • Patent number: 5965955
    Abstract: A locking bar may engage with an ignition switch which is switched to a START position and a LOCK position by a pushing operation, and may unlock a steering shaft when the ignition switch is at the START position and lock the steering shaft when the ignition switch is at the LOCK position. An ID code decision portion may decide whether or not an input identification number coincides with a registered identification number. A first actuator may unlock the ignition switch when the input identification number coincides with the registered identification number, and may lock the ignition switch when the input identification number does not coincide with the registered identification number. Accordingly, lock of the steering shaft due to failure or malfunction during running can be prevented.

  • Patent number: 5818122
    Abstract: A circuit breaking control unit receives an impact detection signal that is outputted from outside when an impact such as a crash of a motor vehicle has been detected, and generates and applies a circuit breaking control signal based on the impact detection signal. A circuit breaking unit forcibly interrupts a power supply path and stops the supply of power to a load. Therefore, the supply of power can be stopped immediately at the time the impact has been detected. In addition, a second load is a minimum electric system that is essential to cause the motor vehicle to travel. Therefore, even if the supply of power to the load is interrupted, the motor vehicle can be caused to travel. Hence, even at the time of an accident or the like, the motor vehicle can be moved to the edge of a road or the like with ease.

  • Patent number: 5659161
    Abstract: In a rubber contact switch in which ends of lead lines of an LED extend to the rear surface of a printed board through holes of a rubber contact sheet to be soldered on the printed board, a recessed portion is formed in the peripheral portions of the holes on the rear surface of the rubber contact sheet, and heat generated by soldering of the lead lines is prevented from being directly transmitted to the rubber contact sheet.

  • Patent number: 5646587
    Abstract: A magnetic element switch is provided which can reduce the number of parts and the cost of the switch as well as improve the reliability thereof. The magnetic element switch includes an operation part oscillatable about a neutral position when operated by an operator, a magnet oscillatable about a neutral position directly or indirectly due to the oscillation of the operation part, and a magnetic element fixedly disposed adjacent to the magnet for generating an electromotive voltage proportional to the density of a magnetic flux incident thereon. The magnetic element is positioned such that a magnetic force line generated by the magnet at the neutral position is allowed to pass through the magnetic element parallel to an electric field formed with the magnetic element and also such that, when the magnet is oscillated, the magnetic force line is allowed to pass therethrough not parallel to the electric field within the magnetic element.
