  • Patent number: 11557802
    Abstract: A battery pack has a plurality of battery stacks, a case, and a thermal insulation cover. The case accommodates the plurality of battery stacks. The thermal insulation cover is arranged so as to expose an outer surface of at least one battery stack from among the plurality of battery stacks inside the case, and to cover an outer surface of a battery stack that is adjacent to the exposed battery stack. A difference obtained by subtracting an amount of removed heat from an amount of heat generated during heat generation is greater in the battery stack that is exposed from the thermal insulation cover than in the battery stack that is covered by the thermal insulation cover.

  • Publication number: 20220252719
    Abstract: An object detection apparatus is mounted to a vehicle and detects an object by a reflected wave of a probe wave. The object detection apparatus calculates a relative velocity of the object to the vehicle, estimates an azimuth of the object relative to the vehicle, and corrects the estimated azimuth. The object detection apparatus generates a velocity-azimuth curve that indicates a relationship between the relative velocity of the object and the azimuth of the object that is calculated based on a theoretical mounting angle of the object detection apparatus, supplies a weight to an azimuth error that is an error between the velocity-azimuth curve and the estimated azimuth, based on the estimated azimuth, and calculates a correction value of the estimated azimuth by calculating, as an actual mounting angle deviation of the object detection apparatus, a weighted average value of the azimuth error to which the weight is supplied.
