  • Publication number: 20230290160
    Abstract: A stop line detection apparatus recognizes a boundary line of a lane on which the host vehicle travels, and detect a stop line at an intersection in front of the host vehicle. The apparatus sets an intersection area corresponding to the intersection in the road on which the host vehicle travels on the basis of a captured image by a front camera of the host vehicle, detects a crosswalk in the intersection area, a stop line search area setting unit configured to set a stop line search area extending from the crosswalk toward a front side in the lane on which the host vehicle travels, and performs stop line detection in the stop line search area. A depth of the stop line search area in an extending direction of a traveling lane is smaller than twice a depth of the crosswalk.

  • Patent number: 11649380
    Abstract: A water-dispersible sheet is described that maintains water dispersibility while providing suppressed time degradation of the tacky adhesiveness of a tacky adhesive layer. The water-dispersible sheet has a paper substrate with a multilayer structure. One layer of the multilayer structure is an inner layer that is not in contact with the tacky adhesive layer. Another layer is a surface layer that is in contact with the tacky adhesive layer. The layers independently include mixed pulps of a wood pulp and a refined pulp with an ?-cellulose content of 88 % by weight or more. The weight ratio of the layers and the beating degree of the mixed pulps are set in the specific ranges.
