  • Publication number: 20200103954
    Abstract: An information processing device includes: an information acquisition unit that acquires information about a power consumption associated with an execution of a program; a determination unit that determines, on a basis of a power-supplying performance of a power supply device and the power consumption information acquired by the information acquisition unit, whether or not the power consumption during the execution of the program according to current operating settings of the information processing device itself exceeds the power-supplying performance of the power supply device; and a setting unit that, in a case in which the determination unit determines that the power-supplying performance of the power supply device is exceeded, adjusts operating settings of a central processing unit (CPU) during the execution of the program such that the power consumption during the execution of the program comes within a range of the power-supplying performance of the power supply device.

  • Publication number: 20200031344
    Abstract: A vehicle control apparatus includes an automatic steering control device. The automatic steering control device includes an override determiner, a target steering angle setter, and a target torque setter. The target steering angle setter sets a target steering angle in automatic steering control, based on surrounding information and running condition information. The target torque setter sets a target torque for making the vehicle turn so that a steering angle of the vehicle becomes the target steering angle set by the target steering angle setter. If a steering intention has been detected by the override determiner, during the steering intention being detected, the target steering angle setter sets the steering angle a predetermined length of time before, as the target steering angle.
