  • Publication number: 20170069212
    Abstract: Equipped with are a presenting unit which presents visible information at such a position that a driver can recognize it visually, an object detection unit which detects an object approaching a self vehicle; and a control unit which controls the presenting unit so that it presents the visible information with a movement of the visible information in a same direction as a left-right component of a direction in which the object is approaching the self vehicle while moving the visible information if the object detection unit detects the object. The control unit controls the presenting unit so that a movement range of the visible information is located on only the left side or the right side, being the same side of the self vehicle as the object is located, of a boundary that defines the left side and the right side for the driver.

  • Publication number: 20130027902
    Abstract: A light guide plate includes a light emitting section having an arc shape in plan view which is arranged to overlap a dial. On a rear surface of the light guide plate, a reflective section which reflects light traveling through the light emitting section toward a front surface is provided. In addition, in the reflective section, plural reflective bodies formed of plural ridges, which are arranged in a direction intersecting the traveling direction of light traveling through the light emitting section so as to be in contact with each other in a width direction thereof and are provided to be convex on the rear surface, are provided at intervals. The plural ridges are formed so as to cause incident light to pass therethrough while refracting the light toward the front surface and reflect the light in a direction perpendicular to the dial.

  • Patent number: 8000247
    Abstract: In a bandwidth management apparatus that outputs packets by observing the bandwidth set value predetermined for each destination, provisions are made to prevent a situation where the contracted bandwidth cannot be provided due to influences from packets destined for other destinations. When performing bandwidth management using token buckets provided one for each destination, each token bucket is updated by setting the upper limit token value higher when any packet is stored in the corresponding queue than when no packets are stored; this serves to prevent a situation where even when a packet has already arrived at the queue, the packet cannot be output because a packet is being output from some other queue and, as a result, unconsumed tokens are discarded at the next update time.

  • Patent number: 7922780
    Abstract: To provide a method and an apparatus for reforming a hydrocarbon with a prolonged life of an oxygen-permeable membrane and a high recovery rate. The oxygen-permeable membrane absorbs the free energy change, ?G, of a partial oxidation reforming reaction and then converts it into work for oxygen isolation and Joule heat, Q. Here, as seen in Table 1 and FIG. 1, ?G of the partial oxidation reforming reaction is approximately ten times larger than ?H, and further increases as the temperature increases. The generated Joule heat, Q, has to be removed at a high efficiency, and this removal process is achieved by returning a portion of the Joule heat to the system as the entropy change, T?S, of the partial oxidation reaction itself and by steam reforming using the total energy change, ?H.

  • Patent number: 7912054
    Abstract: A multicast packet readout control method is disclosed. An input multicast packet is temporarily stored in a multicast queue of a packet buffer. The multicast packet is read from the multicast queue, and converted into a unicast packet addressed to each of the destinations of the multicast packet. The converted unicast packet is stored in a unicast queue of the packet buffer. The converted unicast packet is then read from the unicast queue and transmitted to the destination.

  • Patent number: 7907632
    Abstract: A data communication apparatus has a data retainer, a retain state manager, a guaranteed bandwidth manager, a surplus bandwidth manager managing outputting of output data having a destination retained in the data retainer to an output line on a per-destination basis when the output data is outputted to the output line with the use of a surplus bandwidth that is a surplus over a sum of guaranteed bandwidths, and a scheduler scheduling outputting of data retained in the data retainer to the output line, based on results of managements by the guaranteed bandwidth manager and the surplus bandwidth manager and a retain state managed by the retain state manager. The apparatus manages the bandwidth with improved accuracy at the time of communication using a surplus bandwidth.
