    Abstract: A freezing diagnosing device to be installed in an engine includes an ambient temperature sensor, a liquid temperature sensor, and a freezing determination unit. The ambient temperature sensor detects an ambient temperature. The liquid temperature sensor detects the temperature of a liquid held in the engine. The freezing determination unit determines that a freezing state of a pipe coupled to a pressure sensor in the engine is established when one or both of a first condition and a second condition are satisfied. The first condition is that the ambient temperature detected by the ambient temperature sensor is equal to or less than a first threshold. The second condition is that the temperature of the liquid detected by the liquid temperature sensor is equal to or less than a second threshold.

  • Patent number: 10678051
    Abstract: In a head-up display device, in accordance with lifting and lowering operations of a combiner, each protrusion of a combiner support moves along a guide portion, causing a cover-operation member to turn about a rotary axis in a direction in which a cover is opened or closed. The guide portion includes, from top in order: a first guide portion which engages with the protrusion in a first state (use state); a second guide portion which engages with the protrusion when the cover-operation member turns; and a third guide portion which engages with the protrusion in a second state (non-use state). The angle formed by the direction in which the first guide portion extends and the direction in which the third guide portion extends is less than the angle formed by the direction in which the first guide portion extends and the direction in which the second guide portion extends.
