  • Patent number: 11227595
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a microphone configured to receive input of speech and a processor configured to recognize the speech inputted to the microphone. The processor judges whether the state of the electronic device is a predetermined state when a voice command is recognized based on the speech inputted to the microphone. The processor executes a first process corresponding to the voice command when the processor judges that the state of the electronic device is the predetermined state and executes a second process corresponding to the voice command when the processor judges that the state of the electronic device is not the predetermined state. This electronic device improves the convenience of speech recognition.

  • Publication number: 20210114458
    Abstract: A speed control device which is satisfactory in response and tracking to a speed setting, and can adjust an acceleration-and-deceleration feel according to preferences, is provided. The speed control device 6 controls a speed of a ship so that the speed automatically follows a speed setting set by a ship operator. The speed control device 6 includes a target speed setting module 63 and a change rate adjusting module 64. The target speed setting module 63 sets a target speed that is a target of the speed of the ship to follow, for every unit time, according to the speed setting, to change the target speed based on a given rate of change. The change rate adjusting module 64 decreases the rate of change by adjusting the rate of change at multiple stages, when the target speed set by the target speed setting module 63 approaches the speed setting.

  • Patent number: 10570208
    Abstract: Described herein are methods and compositions for treating autoimmunity and inflammatory conditions without non-specific suppression of the host immune system. In particular, the anti-OX40L antibodies described herein are unique in that they not only inhibit the differentiation of inflammatory T cells but also promote the generation and function of regulatory T cells by inducing IL-10 and inhibiting TNF-? and by reducing aberrant Th2 cell responses. Furthermore, the methods and compositions described herein eliminate or reduce aberrant T follicular helper cell—(Tfh) responses that may contribute to the pathogenicity of autoimmune disease.

    Abstract: According to one embodiment, generally, an information processing apparatus includes a vehicle detector, a stopped-vehicle evaluator, a parked-vehicle evaluator, and a determiner. The vehicle detector detects a vehicle from a captured image by an imaging device mounted in a probe vehicle. The stopped-vehicle evaluator calculates a stopped-vehicle evaluation value based on one or more stopped-vehicle conditions. The parked-vehicle evaluator calculates a parked-vehicle evaluation value based on one or more parked-vehicle conditions. The determiner determines whether the vehicle is stopped or parked based on both the evaluation values.
