  • Publication number: 20240230443
    Abstract: A wheel-state obtaining system includes: air pressure sensors each provided for a corresponding one of a plurality of wheels to detect an air pressure of a tire of the wheel; and temperature sensors each provided for a corresponding one of the wheels to detect a temperature of an inside of a tire of the wheel; and a controller. The controller obtains a temperature conversion air pressure, which is the air pressure of each tire when the temperature is a set temperature, based on a detected air pressure and a detected temperature. When a reduction amount of the temperature conversion air pressure of one of the wheels is greater than a reduction amount of the temperature conversion air pressure of each of other wheels except the one of the wheels, the controller determines that the air pressure of the tire of the one of the wheels is in an abnormal state.

  • Publication number: 20240161354
    Abstract: A physical property map image generation apparatus performs: acquiring, for each pattern of a material, physical property information indicating a physical property quantity for each physical property of a product; and generating a self-organizing map and a physical property map image. A position in a map space and a physical property vector indicating a value related to a physical property quantity for each type of physical properties of the product are assigned to each node on the self-organizing map. On the physical property map image 40, each of the nodes arranged in the map space is represented by a color assigned to that node. For each node, each of two or three base color components of a color assigned to the node is determined based on a value that a physical property vector assigned to that node indicates for a physical property corresponding to that base color.
