  • Publication number: 20220242272
    Abstract: The life of a power storage pack to be mounted on an electric vehicle is prolonged while maintaining user convenience. A monitoring device (1) communicates with a storage device (4) storing power storage packs (2) to be mounted on a electric vehicle (3) traveling at a low speed in a predetermined area. An acquisition unit of the monitoring device (1) acquires parameter information including information of a user who uses the electric vehicle (3) and state information of the power storage packs stored in the storage device (4). A prediction unit of the monitoring device (1) predicts an amount of power consumption of the electric vehicle (3) used by the user, based on the acquired parameter information. A selecting unit of the monitoring device (1) selects a combination of power storage packs to be mounted on the electric vehicle among the power storage packs, based on the predicted amount of power consumption and the acquired state information on the power storage packs.

  • Patent number: 11396942
    Abstract: A shift range control device includes a signal receiver, an abnormality monitor, and a drive controller. The signal receiver acquires an encoder signal from an encoder capable of outputting three or more phase encoder signals having different phases. The abnormality monitor monitors an abnormality of the encoder. The drive controller controls drive of a motor by switching an energized phase of a motor winding so that a rotation position of the motor becomes a target rotation position according to a target shift range. When the abnormality of the encoder is detected, the driver controller drives the motor by faulty phase identification control to identify a faulty phase that is a phase in which an abnormality of the encoder signal occurs, and a normal phase in which the encoder signal is normal.
