  • Patent number: 6885447
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a spectrometer whereby the accuracy of wavelength measurement can be improved without being affected by the environment of use. The present invention is characterized by improvements made to a spectrometer for spectrally dividing the light under measurement by transmitting the components thereof at different, wavelength-by-wavelength angles, and receiving and detecting the light under measurement thus spectrally divided by the chromatic dispersion device using an optical detector. The apparatus according to the present invention comprises a refractive index compensation means for compensating changes in the angle at which the chromatic dispersion device transmits the light under measurement, according to changes in the refractive index of the medium in which the chromatic dispersion device is placed.

  • Patent number: 6026343
    Abstract: An anti-skid control system for an automotive vehicle, comprises a plurality of actuators each associated with one of front-left, front-right, rear-left and rear-right road wheels, for adjusting braking forces applied to the road wheels, sensors for detecting wheel speeds of the road wheels to generate wheel-speed indicative signals, and a controller for controlling the actuators in response to the wheel-speed indicative signals. The controller controls a hydraulic actuator associated with a controlled outer rear road wheel through a so-called select-LOW process between a wheel-speed indicative signal value of the controlled rear outer road wheel and a wheel-speed indicative signal value of a diagonal front wheel located on the vehicle diagonally to the controlled outer rear wheel only when the controller determines that the vehicle is in a cornering state with a high lateral acceleration during a braking-force control for the controlled outer rear wheel.
