Abstract: When data transmitted from devices is processed by servers in a shared manner, the data is processed in a constantly stable manner when the devices move. Based on information indicating installation positions and processing capabilities of the servers, information on installation positions of base stations, and acquired location information of the devices, the coverage area control apparatus performs, at a certain time interval, a clustering calculation for obtaining an optimum coverage area for the servers that satisfies the requirements that the communication distances between the servers and the respective devices be minimized and the servers not be overloaded. Based on the information indicating the optimum coverage area obtained by the clustering calculation, assignments of the base stations to the servers are updated.

Abstract: In a motor control device that controls a sensorless-type motor, a controller estimates an initial magnetic pole position of a rotor of a motor by an inductive sensing scheme while sequentially setting a plurality of energization angles. At each of the set energization angles, the controller converts peak values of currents flowing through a plurality of phases of a stator winding into a first current component having an electrical angle that is equal to a corresponding one of the set energization angles and a second current component that is different in electrical angle by 90 degrees from the first current component, to correct the first current component based on the second current component. The controller estimates the initial magnetic pole position of the rotor based on the corrected first current component that is obtained at each of the set energization angles.

Abstract: In a motor control device in one embodiment, an initial position estimation unit estimates an initial position of a magnetic pole of a rotor of a motor in an inductive sensing scheme. At each of energization angles, the initial position estimation unit multiplies a ?-axis current component I? corresponding to a peak value of a current flowing through a stator winding by each of a cosine value and a sine value of a correction angle obtained by correcting each of the energization angles. The initial position estimation unit estimates the initial position of the magnetic pole of the rotor based on a ratio between an integrated value of a multiplication result about the cosine value and an integrated value of a multiplication result about the sine value.
