  • Patent number: 10933841
    Abstract: A detection system for vehicle includes a reader and a first detector. The reader is provided in a vehicle, transmits and receives radio signals, and transmits transmission signals including at least radio signals for supplying electric power. The first detector is driven by the radio signals for supplying electric power included in the transmission signals when receiving the transmission signals and can transmit first response signals output in response to the transmission signals to the reader. The first detector is disposed in a sitting area on a seat where the first response signals transmitted to the reader are blocked. The reader determines a sitting state of a passenger based on whether the first response signals are received in response to the transmission signals.

  • Publication number: 20200361372
    Abstract: A slide device includes an upper rail to which a slide seat for a vehicle is attached, a slide rail to which the upper rail is slidably attached, a light emitter, and an attachment portion that attaches the light emitter to the upper rail. The attachment portion is attached to the upper rail such that the light emitter is arranged outside the slide rail. According to the slide device, since the attachment portion is attached to the upper rail such that the light emitter is positioned outside the slide rail, the light emitter does not move inside the slide rail to which a large amount of grease is applied, and a decrease in communication performance can be prevented.

  • Publication number: 20200142489
    Abstract: An input device (100) has an input unit (1) provided with a touch panel (13), a frame (2) that surrounds the outer periphery of the input unit (1), and an actuator (3) that causes the input unit (1) to vibrate in the X direction. The input unit (1) and the frame (2) are configured such that even if the relative positions of the frame (2) and an outer periphery (5), which face each other in the in-plane direction of the touch panel (13), were to change due to the vibration of the input unit (1), this change tends not to be perceived as a visual change by a user, making it difficult to perceive the movement.

  • Publication number: 20190308524
    Abstract: A detector includes a first flexible sheet, a second flexible sheet placed opposite to the first flexible sheet, and an insulation sheet intervening between them. The first flexible sheet includes a second antenna unit and first contact portions formed on a first opposing surface. The second flexible sheet includes a detection unit and second contact portions formed on a second opposing surface. The first contact portions and the second contact portions become a state of contact by an external force based on the seating of an occupant, cause the second antenna unit to output a transmission signal to the detection unit, and cause the detection unit to output a detection signal to the second antenna unit.
