  • Patent number: 10969456
    Abstract: The disclosure describes embodiments for modifying an operation of a vehicle component based on a Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communication. In some embodiments, a method includes receiving, by a V2X receiver, a V2X message including context data that describes a context of a V2X transmitter in an environment, wherein the V2X receiver is not sufficiently able to identify the V2X transmitter as an originator of the V2X message within the environment. The method includes determining, by the V2X receiver, digital data describing an identity of the V2X transmitter as the originator of the V2X message within the environment based on the context data. The method includes modifying the operation of the vehicle component of the V2X receiver based on the digital data describing the identity of the V2X transmitter. The vehicle component includes, for example, one or more of an autonomous driving system and an Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS system).

  • Patent number: 6981943
    Abstract: Disclosed is a respiration leading system which can leads a living body to respire so that relaxation is effectively induced without any physiological load even if a respiration exercise feedback is not employed. This system comprises a control unit and a sense-stimulating unit. The control unit makes the sense-stimulating unit change the output energy for stimulating a sense of the living body so that the living body is induced to inhale and exhale as a physiological reaction. The energy change is done within the range of a respiration period x(sec) and a parameter y defined as 2 sec<x<12 sec and 0.85<y<1.45 (a region x?4 sec and y?1.3 is excluded). The parameter y is a ratio of exhaling time to inhaling time. The energy output in the first half period corresponding to either inhaling or exhaling and the energy output in the latter half corresponding to the other, induce the living body to respire.
