  • Patent number: 10739145
    Abstract: A communication terminal is connected to a server and provides movement guidance for a mobile unit based on guidance information delivered from the server. The terminal requests the server for update information for updating area identification information that identifies a section corresponding to an update target area and a section not corresponding to the update target area on a section-by-section basis. The update target area is an area whose terminal-side map information included in the communication terminal is an older version. The terminal updates the area identification information based on the update information transmitted from the server, requests the server for guidance information for providing movement guidance for the mobile unit based on the updated area identification information, and provides the movement guidance for the mobile unit based on the guidance information delivered from the server.

  • Patent number: 10691555
    Abstract: This disclosure includes a battery, an electricity input part for receiving electricity supplied from an external device, a charging controller for charging the battery with the electricity having been supplied via the electricity input part, and a controller for controlling execution of automatic backup. When the electricity input part is connected to the external device and there is data to be subjected to the automatic backup, until the automatic backup is completed, the controller compares a remaining capacity of the battery with a threshold, and executes the automatic backup when the remaining capacity is higher than the threshold. The controller is configured not to execute the automatic backup when the remaining capacity is equal to or lower than the threshold.

  • Patent number: 10361536
    Abstract: A power supply apparatus includes a power supply for supplying power to a laser oscillator. A reactor has one end serially connected to the laser oscillator and another end serially connected to the power supply, and a parallel diode configures a closed circuit for serial connection of the laser oscillator and the reactor. A current detector detects a current flowing in the reactor, and a first switching device is connected in parallel to the laser oscillator and drives the laser oscillator with pulses. An energy consumption circuit prefetches a current command value based on a control signal from a controller upon driving the laser oscillator with pulses, and when the current command value is smaller than a current command value of a previous pulse, the energy consumption circuit consumes energy until the current command value reaches a predetermined target current value.
