  • Publication number: 20180141527
    Abstract: A braking control apparatus performs right and left wheel independent control to approach a slip rate of a rear-right wheel and a rear-left wheel to a target slip rate as an average of slip rates of a front-right wheel and a front-left wheel. In a high-speed range, right and left wheel independent control is started when a deceleration is equal to or larger than a start value that is smaller than a start value used in a low-speed range. In right and left wheel independent control started in the high-speed range, when there is a demand to increase braking pressures of both the rear-right wheel and the rear-left wheel, the braking pressure of the rear wheel located on the outside during the occurrence of deflection of the vehicle resulting from braking is increased, and the braking pressure of the rear wheel located on the inside is prohibited from increasing.

  • Publication number: 20170306515
    Abstract: An aqueous trivalent chromium electrolyte comprising trivalent chromium ions and amino acids that allow for producing a dark colored hue in the trivalent chromium coating which is plated on a substrate. The amino acids described herein comprise a cationic side chain and are at least essentially free of sulfur. The cationic side chain of the amino acid further comprises nitrogen. When used in the trivalent chromium electrolyte, these amino acids allow for producing significantly darker trivalent chromium deposits. The trivalent chromium electrolyte is used in a method for producing the desired dark colored hue in the trivalent chromium coating that is produced on a substrate using electrodeposition.

  • Publication number: 20160078267
    Abstract: In a method, whether there is a first bar having a width and located at at least one of both ends of a first black and white pattern is determined. The width of the bar is greater than a maximum width of a second bar. The maximum width of the second bar appears in a second black and white pattern assuming that the black and white pattern is part of the first barcode. The first black and white pattern is determined as readout data of the second barcode when it is determined that there is the first bar having the width greater than the maximum width of the second bar and located at at least one of both ends of the first black and white pattern.

  • Patent number: 9226713
    Abstract: A method executed by a computer includes applying a correction to an acceleration value of an object at an interval; calculating an initial speed of the object by assigning the corrected acceleration value in a period to a third relational expression that is obtained by transforming a first relational expression and a second relational expression so as to obtain an initial speed from the acceleration in the period and the interval, where the first relational expression is to obtain an object position from acceleration and an initial speed, and the second relational expression represents force applied to the object due to fluctuation of the center of gravity of the object as a motion equation of a spring model; and calculating coordinate values over a horizontal plane that indicates a center of gravity of the object by assigning the corrected acceleration value and the initial speed to the first relational expression.

  • Patent number: 8898281
    Abstract: An information distribution system includes a visit determination unit (42), a distribution range evaluation unit (43), and a distribution range change unit (44). The visit determination unit (42) determines whether a user of a mobile terminal (2) to which evaluation information has been distributed has visited a facility in the evaluation information, and upon determining affirmatively, calculates a visit distance indicating the distance between the location of the mobile terminal indicated by distribution time terminal location information and the location of the facility in the evaluation information. The distribution range evaluation unit (43) determines whether the distribution range is effective based on the visit distance.
