  • Publication number: 20210134637
    Abstract: Camera images may be utilized to detect substrate edges and provide information regarding the centering of the substrate within the fluid dispense system. Camera images may also be utilized to monitoring the location of a cup within the fluid dispense system. The signal processing techniques utilized may include data smoothing, analyzing only certain wavelengths of reflected energy, transforming the data (in one embodiment utilizing a Fourier transform), and/or analyzing a sub-set of the collected pixels of data. The camera image data collected herein may be combined with a wide variety of other data so as to better monitor, characterize and/or control a substrate processing process flow.

  • Publication number: 20210129166
    Abstract: In a liquid dispense system, camera images may be utilized to identify puddle edges of a liquid dispensed on a substrate. The camera image may be used to determine the percentage of puddle coverage and puddling non-idealities. The camera within a fluid dispense system may also be utilized to monitor the intensity of wavelengths reflected from a substrate during a spin coating step. The reflected intensity as a function of time as a substrate is spin coated may be used to monitor and characterize a spin coating process. The reflected intensity as a function of time may be compared to other substrates to identify substrate to substrate film thickness variations. The analysis may be based upon peaks and/or troughs of the reflected intensity as a function of time.

  • Patent number: 10431021
    Abstract: A driving mode setting part sets a driving mode when a vehicle travels by automatic driving. An item setting part sets a prioritized diagnosis. A storage part stores plural diagnosis conditions provided in correspondence to each diagnosis item. A target setting part sets a control target value. A motive power source part controls a motive power source based on the control target value. Each diagnosis item is assigned to the driving mode, for which the diagnosis condition is most easily satisfied. The item setting part sets, as a prioritized item, the diagnosis item assigned to the set driving mode. When the prioritized item is set, the target setting part sets the control target value so that the motive power source attains a state, which is close to the diagnosis condition of the prioritized item.

  • Patent number: 9978187
    Abstract: An electronic control device (ECU) reserves a transmission of a requested diagnosis data that is requested by a management center when an external device is connected to a dedicated connector, and when IGSW is turned ON. In such scheme, a delay of an off-board diagnosis process in the ECU is prevented when a diagnosis tool connected to the dedicated connector performs an off-board diagnosis. Further, after turning OFF of IGSW, the ECU, which is no longer due for a request from the external device connected to the dedicated connector, transmits the requested diagnosis data to the center, enabling the center to perform a remote diagnosis service. Therefore, the remote diagnosis service is performable when a commercially-available external device is connected to the dedicated connector by a user of a vehicle.

  • Patent number: 9978188
    Abstract: An electronic control device (ECU) refrains from a transmission of a requested diagnosis data while IGSW is turned ON in case that an external device is connected to a dedicated connector. After turning OFF of IGSW, regardless of the connection of the external device to the connector, the transmission of the requested diagnosis data to the center is performed. As a result, a delay of an off-board diagnosis process in the ECU due to the transmission of the diagnosis data is prevented. Further, the data required for performing a remote diagnosis service is regularly transmitted to a management center. Therefore, the remote diagnosis service is performable when a commercially-available external device is connected to the dedicated connector by a user of a vehicle.

  • Patent number: 9162684
    Abstract: An electronic control unit includes a threshold acquiring element, a behavior determining element and a storing element. The threshold acquiring element acquires a threshold for defining a determination condition. The threshold is set to correspond to a road condition on which a vehicle travels. The behavior determining element determines whether a vehicle behavior satisfies the determination condition defined by the threshold. The storing element stores predetermined operation data of the vehicle when the behavior determining element determines that the vehicle behavior satisfies the determination condition.

  • Patent number: 8412405
    Abstract: A vehicle diagnosis system includes an electronic control unit, which executes a diagnosing process for determining whether any abnormality is present in a vehicle based on signals from vehicle devices. When any abnormality is detected, the electronic control unit stores in an EEPROM a diagnosis result indicative of the abnormality when a storage permission flag in the EEPROM is in the on-state. The storage permission flag is turned on from the off-state when receiving a storage permission command from an external unit. Thus, the storage of the diagnosis result into the EEPROM may be permitted at the time of transmitting the storage permission command externally to the ECU.

  • Patent number: 8406951
    Abstract: In an electronic control system for a vehicle, an ECU performs diagnosis, and attaches a flag to abnormality data DTC upon detection of abnormality. The flag value is 0 or 1, when a specified condition is not satisfied and satisfied, respectively. When an ignition switch is turned off, the DTC with the attached flag is stored in an EEPROM. The flag value is switched in response to a specified condition that arises between completion of assembly of the ECU to a vehicle and use of the vehicle by a user. The specified condition is set to correspond to start of telematics service to the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 8180521
    Abstract: An electronic control unit performs self-diagnosis based on signals received from various sensors, and stores abnormality data in an EEPROM when abnormality is detected. The DTC is stored in a first memory area and a second memory area of the EEPROM, if a condition flag stored in the EEPROM is OFF and ON, respectively. The condition flag is switched from OFF (initial value) to ON, when service start data is received from a telematics service center in a period from the completion of assembling the electronic control unit to the vehicle to the start of use of the vehicle by a user.
