  • Patent number: 10534162
    Abstract: Substrates with lenses having lenses disposed therein are aligned with high accuracy. A stacked lens structure has a configuration in which substrates with lenses having a lens disposed on an inner side of a through-hole formed in the substrate are direct-bonded and stacked. In particular, one or more air grooves formed in surfaces of the substrates reduces an influence of air inside a void portion between adjacent lenses of a layered lens structure.

  • Patent number: 10328803
    Abstract: the control device for electric vehicle in the first embodiment, in the electric vehicle including the motor that functions as the traveling driving source and provides a regenerative braking force to the vehicle, and the friction brakes that provide the friction braking force to the vehicle, detects the motor rotation speed proportionate to a running speed of this electric vehicle, estimates the disturbance torque that acts on the motor, and performs the control such that the motor torque command value converges to the disturbance torque estimated value as the motor rotation speed decreases. Then, when the motor rotation speed becomes almost 0, the control device performs the control such that the friction-braking-amount command value with respect to the friction brakes converges to a value determined on the basis of the disturbance torque estimated value, and causes the motor torque command value to converge to almost 0.
