  • Patent number: 4583171
    Abstract: In an automatic transmission control device, an electric selector includes a circular common switch, a P range switch, a R range switch, a N range switch and a D range switch. A range shifting is instructed by the electric selector. When the common switch and one of the range switches are both operated in a predetermined manner, an instruction signal is delivered from the electric selector to a microcomputer. The microcomputer discriminates whether the instruction is proper or not. When the instruction is not proper, the microcomputer does not generate range shifting signals to a transmission actuator and generates a long buzzer drive signal. A driver of a vehicle is notified about this fact by a long sound of a buzzer.

  • Patent number: 4419730
    Abstract: The temperature of the interior of a motor vehicle is controlled by an air conditioner in relation to a temperature setting which is variable in response to an action of a vehicle occupant. A voice synthesizer (17) is supplied with vocal information data supplied from a microcomputer (13) in response to the entry thereto of a temperature resetting command. The voice synthesizer generates a vocal announcement of a new temperature setting. Vocal announcements of successively varying temperature values are generated to allow the vehicle occupant to take a second action when a desired temperature value is announced.
