  • Publication number: 20210303214
    Abstract: A memory system includes a non-volatile memory and a controller that includes a first memory and is configured to write log data to the first memory, including a history of commands for controlling the memory system. An information processing system includes the memory system and an information processing device configured to store an expected value and to transmit a signal that instructs the memory system to stop when a value of the log data transmitted from the memory system does not match the expected value. The expected value and the transmitted value are determined based on the log data of the memory system.

  • Publication number: 20200254211
    Abstract: A stress relieving device for vehicles includes a supply unit that sprays cedrol into a vehicle cabin, a detection unit that detects an irritation level and a sleepiness level of a passenger in the vehicle cabin, and a controller that operates the supply unit based on the irritation level detected by the detection unit to cause the cedrol to be volatilized into the vehicle cabin and operates the supply unit to reduce a volatilization amount of the cedrol when the detection unit detects sleepiness. When cedrol is volatilized to suppress irritation in the passenger, a relaxation effect is exhibited, but when relaxation is exceed to promote sleepiness, the volatilization amount of cedrol is reduced to suppress sleepiness.
