  • Publication number: 20240164746
    Abstract: An ultrasonic diagnostic system includes an ultrasonic diagnostic device having a probe, a moving device configured to move the probe, and a control device. When ultrasonic diagnosis is performed on a subject, the control device controls the moving device such that the probe is pressed against a body surface of the subject, and in a case where a specific pattern is designated as a movement pattern of the probe, controls the moving device such that the pressing of the probe on the body surface is canceled or alleviated, then controls the moving device such that the probe is moved with the specific pattern, and when the movement with the specific pattern is ended, performs a specific control for controlling the moving device such that the probe is pressed against the body surface.

  • Publication number: 20220084490
    Abstract: There are provided an electronic musical apparatus, a storage medium storing a recording/reproduction program, and a recording/reproduction method capable of outputting a musical sound phrase and a rhythm phrase after the input musical sound phrase is output. In a case where a recording button is operated, a looper starts to record musical sounds. In this case, the musical sounds (that is, a musical sound phrase) that are being recorded are output from a speaker. Thereafter, in a case where a loop reproduction button is operated, the recording is stopped, and loop reproduction of the recorded musical sound phrase and a rhythm phrase is started. Consequently, it is possible to output musical sounds in which the musical sound phrase and the rhythm phrase are loop-reproduced after the input musical sound phrase is output.

  • Patent number: 10344701
    Abstract: An engine system includes an engine that, a fuel supply device, and an electronic control unit. The electronic control unit is configured to control the fuel supply device and to perform operation control of the engine by adjusting an injection ratio between fuel injection from an in-cylinder injection valve and a port injection valve according to the operation state of the engine. The electronic control unit is configured to perform imbalance determination. The electronic control unit is configured to change a region of fuel injection from a first fuel injection region to a second fuel injection region when the electronic control unit determines that a lean imbalance is occurred with respect to the fuel injection in which the fuel injection from the port injection valve is performed.

  • Patent number: 10253684
    Abstract: An internal combustion engine control apparatus includes a secondary air supply device having a secondary air supply passage that supplies secondary air pumped by an air pump into an exhaust system of an internal combustion engine and an opening/closing unit that opens and closes the secondary air supply passage. A controller provided in the internal combustion engine control apparatus sets the opening/closing unit in an open condition such that the secondary air is supplied to the secondary air supply passage, and then executes foreign matter removal control in which the opening/closing unit is opened and closed. As a result, foreign matter caught in an ASV during AI control is removed immediately. By implementing OBD after removing the foreign matter, detection of an open sticking abnormality caused by foreign matter caught in the ASV is suppressed.
