  • Publication number: 20130241480
    Abstract: Each of battery modules is provided with a range determiner and a voltage detector. The range determiner is connected to a battery via a transmission line, and the voltage detector is connected to the battery via a communication line. In the battery, a voltage calculator calculates a terminal voltage of each of battery cells using a determination result of a voltage range of the battery cell by the range determiner. A control value calculator calculates a battery control value using one of a terminal voltage of each of the battery cells detected by the voltage detector and the terminal voltage of the battery cell calculated by the voltage calculator.

  • Publication number: 20120313562
    Abstract: A battery control device is connected to a plurality of battery cells. The battery control device includes a voltage value calculator, a communicator, and a voltage value updater. The voltage value calculator calculates, based on a current flowing through a plurality of battery cells, a voltage of each battery cell. If the battery control device is connected to a charge control device, the communicator receives information relating to a voltage of each battery cell, which has been detected by a voltage detector in the charge control device, from the charge control device. The voltage value updater updates the voltage calculated by the voltage value calculator based on the voltage information received by the communicator.

  • Patent number: 7047105
    Abstract: A user communicates with a companion with his or her portable telephone attached to a telephone attachment pocket of a robot. The robot acts in accordance with a voice signal which is outputted from the portable telephone, thereby behaving as if it were speaking to the user. The robot outputs a voice in response to the user's voice which is picked up by a microphone, thereby behaving as if it were listening to the user. Owing to this robot or a robot system using the same, the user feels less odd in his or her communication using the portable telephone.
