Abstract: An information processing apparatus according to the present disclosure includes a controller configured to execute: accepting an alighting request to allow a first user to alight at a place other than a travel destination of the first user while a first vehicle allows the first user to ride and travels; performing determination of an alighting place where the first user is allowed to alight, and extraction of one or more candidate vehicles capable of allowing the first user to board at a boarding place that is a place identical to the alighting place or a place adjacent thereto, according to the alighting request; and notifying a request for the first user's reboarding at the boarding place, to a second vehicle that is one of the one or more candidate vehicles, based on an approval by the first user.
Abstract: A striker mounting structure is designed to mount a striker on a vehicle body and prevent a door from entering a passenger compartment. A reinforcement provided on the vehicle body is covered by an outer panel. A striker mounting surface is arranged to be spaced away from the reinforcement in a front/backward direction of the vehicle body. The reinforcement is provided with an insertion hole opening toward a direction away from the passenger compartment. The striker and a reinforcement member are fixed to opposite sides of the striker mounting surface. A connecting rod is fixed to the reinforcement member and is formed with a locking portion extending into the insertion hole in a direction toward the passenger compartment and formed with an abutment portion. A distance between an end of the abutment portion and the passenger compartment is smaller than a distance between the striker and the passenger compartment.

Abstract: To enable a bunch of sheets to be reliably discharged to a stack tray, also in the case where weight of the bunch of sheets formed on a processing tray is large, a post-processing control section receives information on an ink discharge amount, the number of sheets, sheet type, and printing mode (two-side/one-side) in printing on sheets from a main body control section of an image forming unit A, in forming a bunch of sheets on the processing tray. The control section thereby recognizes weight of a bunch of sheets formed on the processing tray, and when the section determines that the weight is heavier than predetermined weight, decreases a rotation velocity of a drive motor of a sheet bunch transport means, or increases a current amount applied to the drive motor. By this means, torque of the motor is increased, and the bunch of sheets is reliably discharged to the first stack tray.
