  • Publication number: 20210019867
    Abstract: An image display system includes a body, a first correction unit, and a second correction unit. The body houses a display unit to display an image and projects a virtual image, corresponding to the image, onto a target space using outgoing light of the display unit. The first correction unit corrects for distortion of the image. The second correction unit corrects a display location of the image on the display unit in accordance with an orientation signal representing a change in orientation of the body. Each of divisional areas of a display screen of the display unit is assigned with a distortion correction parameter for correcting for the distortion of the virtual image. The first correction unit applies distortion correction to each of the image regions of the image on the display screen based on a distortion correction parameter assigned to a divisional area where the image region is displayed.

  • Publication number: 20200303787
    Abstract: A secondary battery system includes an assembled battery that includes a plurality of blocks that are connected in series to one another. Each of the plurality of the blocks includes same number of cells that are connected in parallel to one another. A control device is configured to calculate an internal resistance ratio and a protection current. The internal resistance ratio is a value obtained by dividing the higher one of internal resistances by the lower one of the internal resistances of two of the plurality of the blocks. The protection current is a value obtained by multiplying the internal resistance ratio by a current value of the assembled battery detected by a current sensor. The control device is configured to perform the charge-discharge control based on the protection current.
