  • Publication number: 20230299209
    Abstract: A display device including a pixel having a memory. The pixel includes at least a display element, a capacitor, an inverter, and a switch. The switch is controlled with a signal held in the capacitor and a signal output from the inverter so that voltage is supplied to the display element. The inverter and the switch can be constituted by transistors with the same polarity. A semiconductor layer included in the pixel may be formed using a light-transmitting material. Moreover, a gate electrode, a drain electrode, and a capacitor electrode may be formed using a light-transmitting conductive layer. The pixel is formed using a light-transmitting material in such a manner, whereby the display device can be a transmissive display device while including a pixel having a memory.

  • Publication number: 20220254166
    Abstract: In a recognition device, a recognition unit recognizes an object present in a direction of travel of an own vehicle and an estimated movement region of the object, a determination unit determines whether a path of the own vehicle is blocked by the object by determining whether the estimated movement region of the object overlaps with the path of the vehicle, based on a recognition result obtained by the recognition unit, in response to the determination unit determining that the path is blocked, an acquisition unit acquires information indicating whether the object is a moving object or a stationary object from an operator, and a change unit changes the estimated movement region recognized by the recognition unit, based on the information acquired by the acquisition unit.

  • Publication number: 20220221855
    Abstract: A remote assistance apparatus records, in an assistance content recording unit, assistance contents for remote assistance for an autonomous driving vehicle in response to the autonomous driving vehicle stopping as a result of an occurrence of a traveling abnormality, and then resumes autonomous traveling as a result of remote assistance for the autonomous driving vehicle being provided by an operator. The assistance contents include an assistance location and operator instruction contents for remote assistance instructed by the operator. The remote assistance apparatus detects an autonomous driving vehicle that is expected to pass through a predetermined assistance location included in predetermined assistance contents recorded in the assistance content recording unit.

  • Publication number: 20220217237
    Abstract: A vehicle remote assistance system includes a plurality of vehicles and a remote assistance apparatus. Each of the plurality of vehicles includes a calling unit that transmits a call to the remote assistance apparatus. The remote assistance apparatus includes an assigning unit that schedules the calls that are transmitted from the plurality of vehicles and assigning the calls to any of a plurality of operators. The calling unit transmits a cancelation of the call to the remote assistance apparatus when a reason for the call is resolved after the call is made. The assigning unit cancels scheduling of the call that corresponds to the cancelation that is transmitted from the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20190002931
    Abstract: The production method of the present invention includes: a first fermentation step of adding at least one microorganism selected from yeast, Escherichia coli, and bacteria of the genus Corynebacterium to a first concentrated sugar solution to ferment the first concentrated sugar solution and subjecting the resulting first fermented solution to solid-liquid separation, the first concentrated sugar solution being obtained by using a nanofiltration membrane and/or a reverse osmosis membrane to concentrate a sugar solution obtained using a herbaceous plant of the family Gramineae or Cucurbitaceae as a raw material; and a second fermentation step of adding a second concentrated sugar solution to a solid component obtained in the first fermentation step to ferment the second concentrated sugar solution with the microorganism used in the first fermentation step, and subjecting the resulting second fermented solution to solid-liquid separation.
