  • Patent number: 10305084
    Abstract: An electrode body including a positive electrode plate and a negative electrode plate include a positive electrode tab portion at an end portion on a sealing plate side, a positive electrode collector electrically connected to the positive electrode plate include a collector body portion, a collector extension portion, a collector connection, and a collector connection portion. A pressure-sensitive current breaking mechanism includes a conductive member having an opening portion on an electrode body side, a deformation plate that seals the opening portion, and a collector body portion disposed on the electrode body side of the deformation plate and connected to the deformation plate. The collector extension portion is offset from the collector body portion and is disposed on the sealing plate side with respect to the collector body portion. Positive electrode tab portion is connected to the collector connection bent back at an end portion of the collector extension portion.

  • Patent number: 9956942
    Abstract: Provided is a reservoir in which an inlet for injecting a liquid from the outside into a reservoir chamber in which the liquid is stored is provided at one side of a vehicle, a communication path that extends from the inlet toward the other side of the vehicle is provided, and a communication opening that is capable of making communication between the communication path and the reservoir chamber is formed. A surface part that gets higher from one side of the vehicle toward the communication opening of the other side of the vehicle in a state in which the reservoir chamber is mounted in the vehicle is formed at an upper portion of the reservoir chamber.

  • Patent number: 9568026
    Abstract: In an electric motor-driven booster, a sharp change of reaction force to an operation of a brake pedal is reduced to improve the brake pedal operation feeling. Operation of the brake pedal causes an input rod (34) and an input piston (32) to advance, and an electric motor (40) is driven according to the movement of the input piston to propel a primary piston (10) through a ball-screw mechanism, thereby generating a desired brake hydraulic pressure in a master cylinder. At this time, the input piston receives the hydraulic pressure in the master cylinder to feed back a part of reaction force during braking to the brake pedal. When the brake pedal is further depressed after the output of the electric motor has reached a maximum output and the primary piston 10 has stopped, a lock nut abuts against a movable spring retainer and compresses a reaction force spring.

  • Publication number: 20140210748
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus 10a according to the present disclosure includes: a touchscreen panel 14 on which video is displayed and which accepts an operation that has been performed by a user; a detector 21 which detects the operation that has been performed by the user on the touchscreen panel 14; and a processor 20 which performs processing in response to the operation. If the user has performed the operation using a polyhedron input interface device 10b which has a plurality of sides in mutually different shapes, the detector 21 detects the shape of an area in which the input interface device 10b is in contact with the touchscreen panel to determine which side of the polyhedron has been used to perform the operation, and the processor 20 carries out processing that is associated with the side that has been used.

  • Patent number: 8578711
    Abstract: A master cylinder includes a cylinder body which an operating fluid is introduced from a reservoir, a piston which is slidably fitted in the cylinder body and defines a pressure chamber inside the cylinder body, a supply pathway which is formed in the cylinder body and supplies the operating fluid from the reservoir to the pressure chamber, a bypass pathway which bypasses the supply pathway and allows the reservoir to communicate with the pressure chamber, and a check valve which is installed in the bypass pathway and opens a valve when the pressure inside the pressure chamber is lower than the pressure of the reservoir.

  • Patent number: 8080723
    Abstract: Computation time of correlation comparison between rhythm features obtained from motion capture (MoCap) data and rhythm features obtained from music data is shortened. A rhythm matching parallel processing apparatus includes a feature holding unit which holds beat information of a music segment of input music data and MoCap data having motion beat features of high correlation with beat features of the input music data, a correlative value computation parallel execution procedure registering unit which registers a correlation value computation parallel execution procedure, and a correlation value parallel computing unit which computes in parallel correlation values between the motion beat features of the MoCap data and the beat information of the music segment held in the feature holding unit. The correlation value parallel computing unit obtains in parallel a highest correlation value between the beat features of the music segment and the motion beat features of the MoCap data.
