  • Publication number: 20210162284
    Abstract: Provided is a system for measuring rigidity characteristics that measures a CT value of a golf club head based on an acceleration occurring in an impactor when the impactor is caused to strike the golf club head. Correlation data is calculated by measuring a representative CT value of the golf club head, which is calculated based on CT values measured multiple times by changing the impact velocity of the impactor, and a test velocity CT value, which is a CT value when the impact velocity is set to a predetermined test velocity, for each of a plurality of the golf club heads of an identical model. A rigidity characteristic value measuring device measures the test velocity CT value for another golf club head of the model. A computer estimates the representative CT value of the other golf club head based on the test velocity CT value and the correlation data.

  • Patent number: 10478676
    Abstract: A golf ball including a spherical body, first regions, and second regions. The spherical body includes a core layer and a cover layer made from a synthetic resin covering the core layer. Dimples are formed in a surface of the cover layer. First regions that are electrically conductive are formed on a surface of the spherical body. The first regions are formed on a spherical surface having a center of the spherical body as a center. The first regions are positioned at six vertices of an imaginary regular hexahedron such that the vertices are positioned on the surface of the spherical body and, thus, six of the first regions are formed. The second regions are formed in areas of the surface other than where the first regions are formed. The second regions have a radio wave reflectance lower than that of the first regions.

  • Patent number: 10112566
    Abstract: In a collision prevention system, a control device defines a collision danger level X such that larger values indicate increased possibility of a following vehicle colliding into a host vehicle due to behavior of the host vehicle, and defines a proximity Pr such that larger values indicate shorter inter-vehicle distance or greater relative velocity between the host vehicle and the following vehicle. When a change in amount ?X/?t of the collision danger level X and a threshold value Kxa have a relationship Kxa??X/?t, the control device changes a first threshold value Kpr of the proximity Pr to a second threshold value Kpr? lower than the first threshold value Kpr, and actuates a warning device when the collision danger level X and the threshold value Kx have a relationship Kx?X and the proximity Pr and the second threshold value Kpr? have a relationship Kpr??Pr.
