  • Patent number: 10979245
    Abstract: A gateway device for a vehicle network system is provided. The vehicle network system includes a first network, a second network, a first electronic control unit connected to the first network, a second electronic control unit connected to the second network, and the gateway device connected to the first network and the second network. The gateway device receives a first frame transmitted to the first network by the first electronic control unit; determines whether or not the first frame is appropriate; generates a second frame when the first frame is not determined to be appropriate; and transmits the second frame to the second network. The second frame includes control information and additional information based on content of the first frame. The control information restricts processing of the additional information included in the second frame by the second electronic control unit.

  • Patent number: 10965557
    Abstract: An information management method collects log information of one or more home electrical apparatuses corresponding to service providers. Display screen data is generated which indicates a status of the log information. The display screen data includes groups of information which each contain information on an apparatus, a service provider corresponding to the apparatus, and log information output from the apparatus. Provision of the log information of each group is individually selectable. The display screen data is provided via a network to a display terminal that performs access to a server device. Information is received from the display terminal, which indicates that selection on whether or not provision of the log information is performed. Provision of the log information is not performed on the selected group when a determination is made that refusal of provision of the log information on the selected group is performed.

  • Publication number: 20210089262
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to an information processing apparatus and an information processing method as well as a program that make it possible to control, by a partition provided on a boundary between two spaces, a visual shielding property and an auditory shielding property of a first space to a person in a second space in an interlocking relationship with each other in response to a distance between the person in the second space and the partition. A distance between the partition, which partitions the first space and the second space, and a person in the second space is measured, and transmittance of the partition and magnitude of output of audio in the first space to the second space are controlled in response to the measured distance. The present disclosure can be applied to a control apparatus for a partition section.

    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a control device, a control method, an electronic device, and a program that enables an operation in a natural manner for switching between and remotely operating various control target devices. A plurality of control target devices emits infrared light codes each including a unique ID in a predetermined pattern. A user holds a controller and directs an infrared light receiving unit toward a control target device. At this time, a control state is established for the control target device specified by an infrared light code received by the controller. After the control state has been established, when a user rotates a main body of the controller, a control parameter in accordance with the amount of rotation is calculated, and a control command in accordance with the control parameter is transmitted to the control target device to control the control target device. The present disclosure can be applied to a remote controller.

  • Publication number: 20200270266
    Abstract: Novel tetrahydroisoquinoline derivative compounds are disclosed herein that may be used as an active ingredient for a pharmaceutical composition, and in particular, for a pharmaceutical composition useful for preventing or treating a disease or condition responsive to modulation of the contractility of the skeletal sarcomere. This may be accomplished, for example, by modulation of the troponin complex of the fast skeletal muscle sarcomere through one or more of fast skeletal myosin, actin, tropomyosin, troponin C, troponin I, and troponin T, and fragments and isoforms thereof. The tetrahydroisoquinoline derivative compounds can thus be used as an agent for preventing or treating 1) neuromuscular disorders, 2) disorders of voluntary muscle, 3) CNS disorders in which muscle weakness, atrophy, and fatigue are prominent symptoms, 4) muscle symptoms stemming from systemic disorders, and 5) dysfunctions of pelvic floor and urethral/anal sphincter muscle.
