  • Patent number: 10836364
    Abstract: A prediction unit predicts a limit time at which a limit request value corresponding to a minimum acceleration or torque is reached when a vehicle is decelerated with only a first deceleration control by a drive device based on change over time of a request value indicating a degree of longitudinal direction vehicle acceleration. A mode determination unit selects one of: a first mode in which only the first control is executed, and before the limit time is reached, in addition to the first control, a second deceleration control is started by a braking device; or a second mode in which only the first control is executed, and before the limit time is reached, in addition to the first control, a braking preparation control is started. A calculation unit calculates an operation amount of the drive and braking devices based on the request value in accordance with the determined mode.

  • Patent number: 9582214
    Abstract: A storage system manages initialization status of a storage area block by block. The storage system allows reception of an access request indicating data write to Storage Area #1, which is a part of an uninitialized block. Upon receiving the access request, the storage system writes data to the designated Storage Area #1 without initializing Storage Area #1, and initializes, of the uninitialized block, Storage Area #2 not designated by the access request. The storage system determines that initialization of the uninitialized block has been completed with the data write to Storage Area #1 and the initialization of Storage Area #2.
