  • Patent number: 10362613
    Abstract: A pairing management method includes detecting, by a computer, a peripheral device configured to perform short-range wireless communication with the computer; transmitting, by the computer, to a server storing pairing information generated by a pairing process of a management terminal and the peripheral device, an acquisition request for the pairing information of the detected peripheral device; and performing data communication, by the computer, with the detected peripheral device, based on the pairing information, when the pairing information associated with the transmitted acquisition request is received from the server.

  • Patent number: 10291621
    Abstract: A system includes an apparatus among apparatuses configured to relay communication between equipment, and another apparatus coupled to the apparatuses through a network. The apparatus receives a beacon from one or more equipment for which given operation is executed by a user among a plurality of equipment, the beacon including first identifier whose value is common to the plurality of equipment, each of the plurality of equipment being configured to transmit the beacon; transmits the first identifier and second identifier identifying the one or more equipment, in the beacon, to the another apparatus; and executes relaying communication between equipment relating to a list of second identifier from the another apparatus. The another apparatus transmits, to one of apparatuses, a list of second identifier received in relation to first identifier with a common value in a plurality of the first identifier received from the one of apparatuses.

  • Patent number: 6503639
    Abstract: A press-formed product which is characterized by having a large number of linear concave portions 11 in the region (such as the side wall 31 of the press-formed product 30) which has undergone bending or bending-unbending deformation during press-forming, said linear concave portions satisfying the following requirements. D/P≦0.03×t/1.2 and 0.02t<D≦0.5t where, P (mm) is an interval between the linear concave portions 11, D (mm) is a depth of the linear concave portions, and t (mm) is a wall thickness of the press-formed product. A method of producing a press-formed product, said method being characterized by using a die having linear projections on its forming surface in such a way that the edges of said linear projections cut into the blank in the region which has undergone bending or bending-unbending deformation during press-forming, thereby correcting warpage at the same time of press-forming.
