  • Patent number: 9515944
    Abstract: A train information management apparatus includes a first system central device that generates first train control information for a car-mounted device in every predetermined period and a second system central device that generates second train control information starting from the time at which the time obtained by multiplying the predetermined period with 1/2 has elapsed from the time point when the first train control information is transmitted. The first system central device generates a first packet every time the first train control information is generated and alternately transmits a first packet to a first system trunk transmission line and a second system trunk transmission line. The second system central device generates and transmits a second packet almost in the same manner except that the second packet is transmitted to a trunk transmission line on the opposite side of the trunk transmission line to which the first packet was transmitted.

  • Patent number: 9387774
    Abstract: The train-information management device includes a position detection unit; a regenerating-condition detection unit that detects a regenerative-brake usage condition; a train-line-information holding unit that holds therein information on a section in which a train is more likely to use a brake; a residual-air-amount calculation unit that calculates the amount of residual air in an air tank; and a compressor control unit that controls a compressor. In a regeneration-preparation condition, if a train is running through a position where the distance between the position and a section in which a train is more likely to use a brake is equal to or less than a given value, if the train does not use a regenerative brake, and if the amount of residual air reaches 0%, the compressor control unit causes a compressor to start generating compressed air.

  • Publication number: 20160056048
    Abstract: A method of manufacturing a semiconductor device includes forming a first layer comprising an organic film above a work layer; forming a second layer comprising an inorganic film above the organic film; forming a third layer above the second layer; and forming an opening pattern into the third layer. The method further includes etching the second layer, the first layer, and the work layer using the third layer as a mask, the etching progressing obliquely through the first layer to form a slope in the first layer. The method still further includes removing the first layer to cause the second layer to be disposed in direct contact with the work layer to thereby form a step portion.

  • Publication number: 20140376554
    Abstract: A train-information managing apparatus receives a series of control information attached to serial numbers, which are transmitted from a central apparatus, in order of the transmission and carries out control in the order, and even when the central apparatus is changed or the serial numbers are reset, prevents a blank period of control from occurring. Therefore, when a reception serial number n included in received data is a preferential serial number (n?M) and an old number nprev, which is a serial number included in data received and stored last time, is a cyclic serial number (nprev?M+1), the train-information managing apparatus stores the received data.
