  • Patent number: 10761700
    Abstract: A display device includes: a display; a touch panel disposed on the display; a memory that stores screen configuration information essentially including information of a base area of a fixed size and an extra area of an unfixed size; a retrieving portion that retrieves the screen configuration information therefrom; a display processor that allocates the base area in an image displayable area of the display on the basis of a reference point of the screen of the display and displays a first screen in the allocated base area, and that further allocates the extra area in an area other than the base area and displays a second screen in the allocated extra area when the image displayable area of the display is larger than the base area; and a judgment portion that judges whether or not a user stretches the extra area toward the base area on the touch panel.

  • Publication number: 20200216070
    Abstract: A vehicle alarming system is provided to include (i) an inter-vehicle distance detector and (ii) an alarm. The inter-vehicle distance detector is configured to detect an inter-vehicle distance between a host vehicle and a vehicle ahead of the host vehicle. The alarm is configured to issue an alarm signal to a manipulation applied to an in-vehicle device in response to that a driving load including the inter-vehicle distance detected by the inter-vehicle distance detector satisfies an alarming condition of enabling the alarm. An execution state of a cruise control function is excluded from the alarming condition of enabling the alarm. The alarm is enabled in response to determining an override state in which acceleration or deceleration is manipulated forcedly by a driver of the host vehicle under the execution of the cruise control function.
