  • Patent number: 10731753
    Abstract: An all-wheel-drive-vehicle controller includes: a drive gear coupled to a driving source; a driven gear meshed with the drive gear and coupled to main and sub driving-wheel axle shafts transmitting torques to main and sub driving wheels, respectively; a transfer clutch interposed between the driven gear and the sub-driving-wheel axle shaft and adjusting the torque transmitted to the sub driving wheel; a first determination unit determining whether a first condition in which a torque applied to the drive gear is substantially zero is satisfied; a second determination unit determining whether a second condition in which hydraulic pressure is applied to the transfer clutch and a torque applied to the driven gear is substantially zero is satisfied; and a control unit controlling a torque adjuster to adjust the torque applied to either one of the drive gear and the driven gear if the first and second conditions are satisfied.

  • Patent number: 8964228
    Abstract: A printing system includes following components. Each printing apparatus prints print document information and outputs a document. A terminal transmits print document information stored therein and location information. A print server receives, from the terminal, the print document information and the location information, generates authentication information in association with the print document information, identifies one printing apparatus in accordance with the received location information and location information of the printing apparatuses, and transmits the generated authentication information to the identified printing apparatus. The identified printing apparatus displays authentication reference information in accordance with the received authentication information. The terminal receives input of information based on the authentication reference information and transmits the input information to the print server.
