  • Patent number: 11993912
    Abstract: Provided is a work machine that can suppress decrease in work efficiency while reducing the possibility of contacting a worker or a dump truck, etc. A movement range is set in advance so as to avoid entry of a worker or a dump truck, etc. into the set movement range. The work machine performs stop control with clearance for an obstacle having entered the movement range, but performs stop control with relatively small clearance (minimum clearance) for a movement range. Thus, the work machine can reduce the frequency of stopping a body or a work implement and suppress decrease in work efficiency. Since the work machine controls the body or the work implement to stop with clearance when the worker or the dump truck, etc. enters the movement range of the work machine, the work machine can reduce the possibility of contacting the worker or the dump truck, etc.

  • Patent number: 11925865
    Abstract: A non-limiting example game system includes a processor incorporated in a main body apparatus, and the processor makes a first index image move toward an upper end from a lower end in a movement gauge in a parameter determination screen when a player starts a second parameter determination operation. When the first index image is stopped according to an operation of the player, a hitting power for a ball is determined based on the stopped position. Moreover, if the first index image is stopped, a second index image is moved up to a position that the first index image is stopped from the lower end in the movement gauge. The player performs a direction input during a direction input period that is a period of time that the second index image is being moved. Then, a trajectory after the ball starts moving is changed in a direction based on the direction input.

  • Patent number: 11707678
    Abstract: A non-limiting example game system includes a processor incorporated in a main body apparatus, and the processor makes a player character hit a ball according to an operation of a player. A movement gauge is displayed in a parameter determination screen, and the movement gauge includes a belt-shaped basic area and a risk area outside the basic area. A first index image is moved inside the basic area, and a hitting power is determined at a position that the movement is stopped by an operation of the player. The hitting power affects a flight distance of a ball. After the hitting power is determined, a position of a deviation indication image displayed along the first index image is determined at random. A deviation amount is made larger as the deviation indication image is moved away from the center of the first index image. The risk area is enlarged toward an upper end of the movement gauge. That is, if the flight distance of the ball is made longer, the deviation amount may become larger.
