  • Patent number: 11280474
    Abstract: A lighting device includes a white LED, a full-color LED, and a reflecting portion. The reflecting portion reflects light from the white LED and the full-color LED. A microcomputer turns on the full-color LED to emit light containing a red light component while the white LED is on. Further, the white LED and the full-color LED are arranged so that reflected lights thereof reflected by the reflecting portion are mixed to perform illumination. Thereby, direct lights of the white LED and the full-color LED cannot be visually recognized. Further, light from the white LED with a lot of blue components is compensated with light containing a red component from the full-color LED, and spectral distribution can be made even and illumination close to that of natural light can be performed.

  • Patent number: 9738320
    Abstract: A vehicle body front structure includes left and right front side frames including at least left and right front bending portions, left and right middle bending portions, and left and right rear bending portions. The left and right front bending portions are bent to project inwards in a vehicle's width direction by a collision load exerted on a front end of a vehicle body, whereby the left and right front bending portions restrain a power unit. The left and right middle bending portions are situated spaced apart to the rear from the left and right front bending portions. The left and right rear bending portions are situated spaced apart to the rear from the left and right middle bending portions, are bent outwards in the vehicle's width direction, and absorb collision energy when struck by the power unit moved rearward together with the left and right front bending portions.

  • Patent number: 9065728
    Abstract: Systems, methods and devices for failure analysis are provided. Using aggregation flow mining (AFM) or a similar method, an integrated mining of flow (IMF) acquires, from each router to be tested, information relating to each flow. The IMF, in relation to each of the routers, obtains distributions of statistical information such as throughput or difference for each flow; calculates, in relation to each of the distributions, a Mahalanobis distance in relation to the expected value of a reference distribution; and makes a comprehensive assessment of the distributions to perform a fault determination. When the fault determination is performed, a normal value of the distribution used for comparison is acquired from AFM and updated through feedback as needed. After the results of fault determination relating to other routers are assessed, the expected value of the standard deviation and the average value of the reference distribution used for comparison are updated.

  • Publication number: 20130329571
    Abstract: Conventional network tomography techniques do not allow the location or cause of a failure to be specified, and false positives are common due to lack of information. Using aggregation flow mining (AFM) or a similar method, an IMF (102) acquires, from each router (105) to be tested, information in relation to each flow. The IMF, in relation to each of the routers, obtains distributions of statistical information such as throughput or difference for each flow; calculates, in relation to each of the distributions, a Mahalanobis distance in relation to the expected value of a reference distribution; and makes a comprehensive assessment of the distributions to perform a fault determination.

  • Publication number: 20120117242
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to enhance the followability of the automatic scaling of a whole system corresponding to an increase of requests in a service linkage system for linking plural services. A cloud that executes intermediate service receives an estimate of the output of service at a previous stage by an output rate estimating unit and an information gathering response from a cloud management server, estimates an output rate, and outputs the estimate to service at a following stage. A scaling control unit receives the estimate of the output of the service at the previous stage and the information gathering response, determines resources allocated to the intermediate service, and outputs a scaling request to the cloud management server and the output rate estimating unit.

  • Publication number: 20090178091
    Abstract: The playback of contents in the course of progressive download is stopped depending on the information of the contents and network environments. Also, contents in the course of the playback of progressive download cannot be fast forwarded. When progressive download is indicated, a contents receiving terminal dynamically allocates resources (bus band, CPU, etc.) used in other stream processing within the receiving terminal and fast downloads a portion not downloaded to avoid the interruption of playing contents. Furthermore, the receiving terminal transmits a required communication band to a home gateway, which performs band control with other communications within a home network to allocate a maximum allocatable communication band to the contents receiving terminal.
