  • Patent number: 9747799
    Abstract: A modulating and demodulating section receives, from another radio device, a packet signal including at least position information of another vehicle in which the other radio device is mounted. A position information acquiring section acquires position information of the vehicle in which the radio device is mounted. An estimating section estimates a time taken for the vehicle and the other vehicle to encounter each other on the basis of these two pieces of position information. A deriving section derives a distance between the vehicle and the other vehicle on the basis of these two pieces of position information. A determining section provides notification of an encounter with the other vehicle in a case where the estimated time is equal to or less than a first threshold value or in a case where the derived distance is equal to or less than a second threshold value.

  • Patent number: 9667029
    Abstract: In conventional semiconductor laser light sources, since intervals of light emitter waveguides are changed or stresses which are applied on chips of a laser array are controlled in the production process, there exists a problem that the productivity is lowered. A structure of a heat sink 3a, on which a semiconductor laser array 2 is mounted in which a plurality of semiconductor lasers are arrayed at equal intervals in a stripe width direction, is configured so that the heat radiation efficiencies of the plurality of semiconductor lasers are not constant between the central region and other regions in the stripe width direction.

  • Patent number: 9651005
    Abstract: An air intake duct, of a saddle-riding type vehicle, in which a flow velocity of an intake air is less likely to be reduced to enable prevention of reduction of an efficiency of a supercharger, is provided. The air intake duct of a motorcycle serves to supply incoming wind as the intake air to the supercharger for a combustion engine. The air intake duct has a passage area that is gradually reduced from an air intake port at a front portion toward a downstream portion connected to the supercharger at a rear portion.

  • Publication number: 20170049124
    Abstract: Provided is a method for manufacturing an aerated chocolate from a non-tempered type chocolate containing a non-tempered type non-cocoa fat and having reduced bloom, the chocolate being improved by uniform introduction of fine air bubbles. Also provided is a method for manufacturing baked chocolate, using the aerated chocolate obtained by the above manufacturing method. This method for manufacturing an aerated chocolate involves chilling a chocolate containing a non-tempered type non-cocoa fat from a completely molten state to a temperature 0.5-5° C. lower than the solidification temperature, reheating to a temperature 1-5° C. higher than said temperature, and providing aeration to bring the specific gravity to 0.3-1.1. Baked chocolate is obtained by forming the aerated chocolate obtained by said method to a prescribed shape, and baking the chocolate.
