  • Patent number: 10889277
    Abstract: A braking control device for a vehicle is provided, which includes an operating amount detecting part configured to detect an operating amount of a brake pedal, a reaction-force giving part configured to generate a reaction force of the brake pedal, a braking-force generating part configured to generate a braking force for wheels according to the brake pedal operating amount, and an electronic control unit (ECU) electrically connected with them. The ECU includes a processor configured to control the giving part and generating part, and set a braking rigidity characteristic based on a braking rigidity that is a ratio of the reaction force to the operating amount, and a vehicle deceleration. The ECU sets a braking rigidity value so that the braking rigidity value increases as the vehicle deceleration becomes larger. The ECU controls the reaction-force giving part based on the braking rigidity value.

  • Patent number: 10696871
    Abstract: A pressure-sensitive adhesive transfer tape that may have on one surface of a release substrate made of paper or a plastic film, a pressure-sensitive transfer layer having an adhesion inhibiting layer and an adhesive layer, wherein the adhesion inhibiting layer and the adhesive layer are successively stacked on one another. The adhesion inhibiting layer may prevent the adhesive layer formed on one adherend from being in contact with another adherend to weaken the adhesion between the one and another adherends, enabling the one and another adherends to be easily separated from each other. With the passage of time after being put on one another, the adhesion inhibiting layer may migrate to another adherend, so that the adherend is in contact with the adhesive layer, exhibiting strong adhesion properties between the adherends.

  • Patent number: 9053714
    Abstract: An information device is an information device that records information on or reproduces information from an information recording medium (3). The information device includes a light source (14) and a near-field light generating element (9) including a resonating section (22) configured such that plasmon resonance occurs between the resonating section (22) and a recording region (4). The resonating section (22) causes the plasmon resonance when emission light from the light source is irradiated on the near-field light generating element (9). A resonance enhancing film enhances the plasmon resonance between the resonating section (22) and the recording region (4). The resonating section (22) generates near-field light and irradiates the near-field light on the recording region (4) from a recording layer side.
