  • Publication number: 20240135812
    Abstract: An information notification system displays a notification to a user of a vehicle on a display device. A first type notification is a notification of road traffic information on a road or traffic around the vehicle. A second type notification is a notification of information not belonging to the road traffic information or a notification that no road traffic information is available. The information notification system prohibits overlaying the first type notification and the second type notification when displayed on the display device. When the display device has only a single display area for displaying the notification, the information notification system selects and displays one of the first type notification and the second type notification in the single display area.

  • Patent number: 11655118
    Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is to provide a storage state in which a reactive compound layer can be stably maintained in a polymer film having a reactive compound layer on the surface. The film roll is obtained by winding together: a first polymer film having a reactive compound layer on the surface, and a second polymer film having a surface roughness (Ra) of 0.1 ?m or more and a modulus of elasticity of 300 MPa or more and 10 GPa or less. The film bundle is obtained by laminating the first and second polymer films. Preferably, storing the film roll and the film bundle at a low temperature enables a thin layer of a reactive compound to be stably maintained.
