  • Patent number: 10886581
    Abstract: A battery pack includes a housing accommodating a plurality of batteries and a blower. A control unit manages the temperature of the batteries according to the battery temperature provided by a temperature detector. When the battery temperature becomes equal to or higher than a predetermined cooling required temperature, the control unit executes a cooling mode of operating the blower to cool the batteries. The control unit executes a temperature equalizing mode of operating the blower to equalize the temperature inside the housing by causing the fluid flowing through the circulation path even when the battery temperature is lower than the cooling required temperature and the cooling is unnecessary.

  • Patent number: 10643570
    Abstract: Provided is a technique that prevents excessive determination that control in a display control apparatus is abnormal. The display control apparatus includes an image acquisition unit, an image transmitter, and a controller. The controller determines, whenever necessary, on the basis of a second image that is output from the image transmitter and check data that is acquired in the image acquisition unit, whether the control in the display control apparatus is abnormal. The controller stops the determination until a predetermined time elapses from a first time point, the predetermined time being equal to or greater than a time from the first time point at which the check data is input to the controller to a second time point at which the second image is input to the controller.
