  • Patent number: 11243533
    Abstract: A control apparatus for an unmanned transport machine for delivering a package from a departure location to a destination includes a trouble information acquiring unit configured to acquire trouble information, a selection requesting unit configured to request a recipient of the package to select one option among a plurality of delivery method options when the trouble information indicates trouble occurring on a delivery route from the departure location to the destination, a candidate destination selecting unit configured to select candidate destinations corresponding to the delivery method options based on a current location of the unmanned transport machine and map information, and a destination determining unit configured to determine a new destination selected from the candidate destinations in accordance with the selected option.

  • Publication number: 20160295271
    Abstract: A clock information correction unit 15 is provided to correct the broadcast start/end times of an electronic program guide (EPG) generated in reference to the standard time. To perform this correction, the clock information correction unit 15 uses the standard time, which is the Greenwich Mean Time received by a standard time reception unit 11 of a broadcast reception device 100, and the clock time counted by an internal clock 21 of a head unit 200. The aforementioned correction is made based not on the time difference between time zones, but on the clock time of the internal clock 21. Thereby, without time zone setting based on GPS positional information or selection by a user operation, the broadcast start/end times of the EPG can be adjusted to correspond to the time of the internal clock.

  • Patent number: 7813874
    Abstract: The invention provides an on-vehicle navigation system, route guide method, and computer-readable recording medium capable of setting an optimum guide point corresponding to proposed actions set as destinations or way points, and performing route guidance based on the setting. The on-vehicle navigation system includes a function of searching for a guide route leading to a set destination or the like and displaying the searched guide route on a screen of a display to guide the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 6954187
    Abstract: A method for driving an address-display separated-type AC (Alternating Current) PDP (Plasma Display Panel) is provided which is capable of having sequentially and continuously wall charges be formed sufficiently on a scanning electrode and sustaining electrode even when a width of a scanning pulse is shortened. Driving operations of a scanning driver and sustaining driver for the scanning electrode and the sustaining electrode during a pre-discharge period are the same as those employed in the conventional method. Driving operations for the scanning electrode during a scanning period are also the same as those in the conventional method except following. At ending time of a period during which a scanning pulse is applied to the scanning electrode, a potential difference obtained by superimposing a writing wall charge forming pulse on a sustaining pulse is applied for 3 ?sec to 5 ?sec.
