  • Patent number: 10564532
    Abstract: An optical unit includes a digital micromirror device that drives each micromirror to be ON/OFF controlled, a first prism that guides illumination light to the digital micromirror device, a second prism having an OFF light reflection surface that reflects OFF light reflected on a micromirror in an OFF state and allows transmission of ON light reflected on a micromirror in an ON state, and a third prism that receives the ON light emitted from the second prism to output the ON light to a projection side. The micromirror reflects the OFF light in such a direction that the optical axis of the OFF light is apart from a projection optical axis plane including the optical axis of the ON light and the optical axis of the illumination light. The second prism emits the OFF light through an emission surface intersecting the projection optical axis plane.

  • Patent number: 10471939
    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.
