  • Publication number: 20200258113
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus according to an embodiment includes a detector, a controller, a display device, and a storage device. The detector detects a commodity code of a commodity. If a first commodity code of a first commodity is detected, the controller determines whether a second commodity is registered as associated with the first commodity. The display device outputs content of the privilege data for the second commodity in response to determining the second commodity is registered as associated with the first commodity. In response to detecting a second commodity code of the second commodity, the storage device applies a privilege corresponding to the privilege data to the second commodity and stores commodity information of the second commodity.

  • Publication number: 20190340389
    Abstract: In a search device (102), a data search unit (233) acquires an encrypted query including one keyword from a data storage unit (232), the encrypted query being stored in the storage unit (232) since before the encrypted data is received by the data reception unit (231). The data search unit (233) determines whether a value of the encrypted data and the keyword of the encrypted query coincide, with both of the encrypted data and the encrypted query remaining encrypted. A data transmission unit (234) transmits identification data indicating an identifier of the encrypted query when it is determined by the data search unit (233) that the value of the encrypted data and the keyword of the encrypted query coincide.

  • Patent number: 5664636
    Abstract: An electrically powered vehicle wherein the electric power may be provided by an auxiliary electric motor with power assist being determined by a manual force applied by an operator for manually propelling the vehicle. The vehicle control includes a method for determining when the vehicle is being started from a stop and for providing a gradual application of electric power assist during such start-up. In addition, if the operator calls for an abrupt change in power assist, the actual power assist is applied only gradually to provide smoother operation. The system also has self-checking functions and the electric power assist is disabled in response to certain types of failures. However, the operator is warned in advance that the power will be shut down so as to avoid emergency situations. The self-checking provides an arrangement for checking when the speed sensor is inoperative by sensing certain output characteristics of the speed sensor and the force application.

  • Patent number: 5505277
    Abstract: An electrically power assisted, manually operated vehicle, such as a bicycle, that includes a force sensor for varying the amount of power assist by an electrical motor in response to the manual force input. In addition, a vehicle speed sensor is incorporated for sensing vehicle speed. An abnormality condition detector detects both the outputs from the force sensor and the vehicle speed sensor and indicates an abnormality and discontinues the supply of electrical power to the electric motor in the event of a discrepancy in the outputs of the sensors.

  • Patent number: 5080039
    Abstract: A processing apparatus includes a processing chamber and an insertion jig for inserting an object to be processed into the processing chamber. The processing chamber and the insertion jig are adapted to be individually movable relative to a heating section, so that the operation of loading and unloading the object into and from the processing chamber effected by the insertion jig is conducted outside the heating section, thereby preventing the outside air from being induced to enter the heated processing chamber, together with the object of the processing, and thus avoiding the occurrence of various problems, for example, the object of processing being disorderly oxidized by the oxygen contained in the outside air, and the foreign matter contained in the outside air being undesirably attached to the surface of the object, so as to obtain excellent processing results.

  • Patent number: 4723058
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a gas switch provided with a body case wherein a switching unit is installed and an arc-extinguishing gas such as sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) or the like is enclosed at a constant pressure, and an actuating mechanism for operating the switching unit. When a pressure of the arc-extinguishing gas comes lower than a predetermined value, a lock member is disposed to a working position whereat it engages with the actuating mechanism, the actuating mechanism is thus locked unoperatably, and a display member is ready for observing externally in accordance with a shift of the lock member. Operators then carry out works for maintenance and check of the gas switch as ensuring the state wherein a gas pressure drops in the body case and the actuating mechanism has been locked.
