  • Publication number: 20200193102
    Abstract: A commodity container includes a main body having a container space, first and second antennas, and a processing circuit. The first antenna is configured to receive tag information from one or more wireless tags in a first range covering at a first region of the container space. The second antenna is configured to receive tag information from one or more wireless tags in a second range covering at a second region the container space. The second range is different from the first range. The processing circuit is configured to store tag information received by the first antenna in a data storage unit, determine whether or not tag information received by the second antenna corresponds to the stored tag information, and generate a control signal for generation of a user notification when the tag information received by the second antenna does not correspond to the stored tag information.

  • Patent number: 10619581
    Abstract: A control device of an internal-combustion engine capable of improving merchantability by promptly and appropriately securing an in-cylinder fresh air amount even when an internal-combustion engine including a boost device and an EGR device is in a transient operation state is provided. A control device 1 includes an ECU 2. The ECU 2 calculates an intake air amount GGAScyl, sets an upper-limit target fresh air amount GAIR_hisH, controls a boost operation of a boost device 7 when an operating range of an internal-combustion engine 3 is in a predetermined boost range, and controls an EGR device 5 so that exhaust gas recirculation is stopped when the intake air amount GGAScyl does not reach an upper-limit target fresh air amount GAIR_hisH and the exhaust gas recirculation is executed when the intake air amount GGAScyl reaches the upper-limit target fresh air amount GAIR_hisH in the predetermined boost range.
