  • Patent number: 12012716
    Abstract: In a hydraulic excavator including a main controller that can execute area restriction control, the main controller is configured to calculate an operation velocity Vix of a front work device in a machine body coordinate system. The controller is further configured to calculate a movement velocity (dragging velocity) of a machine body in a gravity coordinate system and correct a direction of a calculated target velocity vector upward away from a construction target surface when generation of dragging is detected during execution of the area restriction control based on the calculated operation velocity of the front work device and the calculated movement velocity of the machine body.

    Abstract: A positioning relation taking an obstacle between communication apparatuses into consideration is grasped to perform opening/closing control with a key. The communication apparatus includes a distance generation section and an inside/outside determination section. The distance generation section generates distance information on the basis of a phase characteristic of a frequency of a propagation channel to and from another communication apparatus. The inside/outside determination section performs inside/outside determination on whether or not an obstacle is interposed between the communication apparatus and the difference communication apparatus, on the basis of the phase characteristic of the frequency of the propagation channel to and from the other communication apparatus. The communication apparatus may further include a key controlling section that controls at least one of locking and unlocking with a key on the basis of the distance information and a result of the inside/outside determination.
