  • Publication number: 20190302195
    Abstract: In a GSR sensor element, tm and ti of rising pulse detection are close, and the induced voltage is significantly high at tm. Thus, a variation due to the magnetic field cannot be ignored. To remove an induced voltage from an output voltage and achieve a GSR sensor with a rising pulse detection system. On the basis of the knowledge that the polarity of an induced voltage becomes opposite relative to a direction of the current flowing in a magnetic wire, if one coil includes therein two magnetic wires in which currents of opposite polarities flow, an induced current is cancelled, allowing for the detection of a voltage in proportion to a magnetic field.

  • Patent number: 10358168
    Abstract: A crossing member disposed along a vehicle width direction between inflected portions of side members is capable of transmitting load from one of the side members to the other of the side members when the one side member deforms toward a vehicle width direction inward. Accordingly, when collision load is input due to an offset collision or the like, the collision load is transmitted from the one side member input with the collision load to the other side member through the crossing member, and the collision load is supported by the other side member.
