  • Patent number: 10636545
    Abstract: A wiring harness includes an electromagnetic shield and a high-voltage electric wire. The electromagnetic shield includes a metal pipe and a braided member, which is continuous with the metal pipe and includes metal strands. The high-voltage electric wire extends through the metal pipe and the braided member of the electromagnetic shield. The high-voltage electric wire is electrically connected to an automotive high-voltage battery and includes an insulative coating. The high-voltage electric wire includes a braided protector and a resin protection tube. The braided protector is formed by a braid of insulative reinforced fibers and surrounds the insulative coating. The braided protector of the high-voltage electric wire extends from a portion located inside the metal pipe to a portion surrounded by the braided member. The protection tube of the high-voltage electric wire surrounds a portion of the braided protector located inside the braided member.

  • Publication number: 20200076003
    Abstract: A manufacturing method of a secondary battery is provided to improve a manufacturing efficiency of a non-rectangular electrode. The manufacturing method is provided for a secondary battery and includes forming the non-rectangular electrode. The step of forming the electrode includes, prior to forming an electrode precursor by applying an electrode material layer raw material to a metal sheet material that becomes a current collector, controlling a wettability of a local portion of a surface of the metal sheet material to the electrode material layer raw material and forming a wettability control region in the local portion. The local portion becomes a cutaway region of the non-rectangular electrode.

  • Patent number: 10328866
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus for processing an image according to one embodiment includes a generating unit, a display control unit, and a change receiving unit. The display control unit generates a synthetic image providing a view of a vehicle from a virtual viewpoint, based on a plurality of onboard camera images. The display control unit displays the generated synthetic image on a display unit. The change receiving unit receives a change in the relative positional relation between an image region that is based on one of the camera images and image regions that are based on the other camera images in the synthetic image. The generating unit generates a synthetic image, based on a changed positional relation every time a change in the positional relation is received.

  • Patent number: 10256058
    Abstract: A switchgear includes a first contact capable of reciprocating along a motion axis, and a second contact. The second contact includes a facing unit movable in a first direction from the first contact toward the second contact when the facing unit is pushed in by the first contact, a spaced unit spaced from the axis and urged in a direction toward the axis, and a regulating unit coupled to the facing unit. The spaced unit abuts on the regulating unit to restrict movement of the spaced unit in the direction toward the axis as the facing unit is located in the second direction. The spaced unit is released from abutment on the regulating unit to move in the direction toward the axis into abutment on the first contact as the facing unit moves in the first direction.

  • Patent number: 10093798
    Abstract: A polyester resin composition containing a polyester resin, and a fine cellulose fiber composite having an average fiber diameter of from 0.1 to 200 nm, wherein the fine cellulose fiber composite contains fine cellulose fibers and hydrocarbon groups being connected thereto via an amide bond. The polyester resin composition of the present invention can be worked into a molded article by thermoforming or injection-molding, and is suitably used for various industrial applications, such as daily sundries, household electric appliance parts, packaging materials for household electric appliance parts, and automobile parts. In addition, the fine cellulose fiber composite has high dispersibility against various resins and can exhibit thickening effects, so that it is suitable as various thickeners or the like.
