  • Patent number: 10871178
    Abstract: A transaxle includes a braking unit disposed in the transaxle casing, the braking unit configured to brake the axle. The braking unit includes an operating shaft projecting from one side of the transaxle casing. A link mechanism of the transaxle is includes a relay arm rotatably pivoted on a shaft provided on the one side of the transaxle casing, a brake arm fixed to the operating shaft, the brake arm being configured to rotate between a braking position and an unbraking position of the braking unit together with the operating shaft, a first link configured to manipulate the relay arm, and a second link configured to join the relay arm to the brake arm. The link mechanism constrains motion of the brake arm through the second link such that an external force on the braking unit cannot cause an unexpected release from the braking state.

  • Publication number: 20200370200
    Abstract: Provided is a method of manufacturing an oriented steel plate having two or more regions in each of which a crystal orientation is arranged in a specific direction. In the method, at least two single crystal steels are brought into contact with a principal surface of a polycrystalline steel plate so that crystal orientations of the single crystal steels and are arranged in different directions, and heat treatment of the single crystal steels and the polycrystalline steel plate is performed. This causes crystal growth following the crystal orientations of the single crystal steels to occur in the polycrystalline steel plate. Then, two or more single crystal steels having different crystal orientations are formed in the polycrystalline steel plate.

  • Patent number: 10760322
    Abstract: In a state that an engine is started up by using a mobile device from outside a vehicle, a power mode changeover switch is switched from a fixed contact OFF to a fixed contact START while avoiding a fixed contact ACC and a fixed contact ON, and the power mode changeover switch is maintained at the fixed contact START even after the engine is placed in an operation state. When an electric power is not supplied through the fixed contact ACC, a detection unit places itself in a state in which a detection operation is possible, and when the electric power is supplied, the detection unit places itself in a detection operation prohibition state.

  • Patent number: 10298459
    Abstract: A method includes: receiving a reservation, made by a user from a user terminal, regarding a bandwidth of a line; first determining whether or not a total bandwidth of a bandwidth demanded by the reservation in a time slot related to the received reservation and a guaranteed bandwidth to one or more reserved users exceeds a permissible upper limit value of the line; when the total bandwidth exceeds the permissible upper limit value, calculating a reducible bandwidth based on a bandwidth shortage produced by subtracting the permissible upper limit value from the total bandwidth and statistical information of a use bandwidth consumed by the one or more reserved users; second determining a reduction bandwidth reduced from the guaranteed bandwidth based on the calculated reducible bandwidth; and assigning, by a processor, the determined reduction bandwidth to the bandwidth demanded by the reservation.
