  • Patent number: 11459916
    Abstract: A drive-side rotor is rotated synchronously with a crankshaft. A driven-side rotor is rotated integrally with a camshaft. An internal gear section is formed at the driven-side rotor. An Oldham coupling includes: a driven Oldham flange that is formed at the drive-side rotor; a drive Oldham flange that is formed at the planetary rotor; and an Oldham intermediate that is configured to synchronize rotation of the driven Oldham flange and rotation of the drive Oldham flange while permitting eccentricity between the driven Oldham flange and the drive Oldham flange. There is satisfied a relationship of ?2<?1 where: ?1 is a maximum tilt amount of the planetary rotor relative to the driven Oldham flange; and ?2 is a maximum tilt amount of the planetary rotor in a clearance formed at the Oldham coupling.

  • Publication number: 20220292368
    Abstract: A classification unit of a classification device inputs input data to a learned model for classifying data into a class, to classify a class of the input data. The learned model includes a feature value extraction model for extracting a feature value from data and a classification model for classifying a class of data based on the feature value extracted by the feature value extraction model. In the learned model, respective parameters of the feature value extraction model and the classification model are trained in advance based on a supervised data set in a first domain in such a manner that a class classification result output from the learned model and a ground truth label correspond to each other.

    Abstract: An Oldham coupling includes: a driven Oldham flange that is formed at a drive-side rotor; a drive Oldham flange that is formed at a planetary rotor; and an Oldham intermediate that is configured to synchronize rotation of the driven Oldham flange and rotation of the drive Oldham flange. A thrust section is formed at a rotor plate portion which is a portion other than the Oldham coupling. The thrust section is configured to limit tilting of the planetary rotor relative to the driven Oldham flange when the thrust section contacts the planetary rotor in an axial direction. There is satisfied a relationship of ?2>?1 where: ?1 is a maximum tilt amount of the planetary rotor relative to the driven Oldham flange; and ?2 is a maximum tilt amount of the planetary rotor in a clearance formed at the Oldham coupling.

    Abstract: [Object] This invention, on an assumption that the environmental situation must be considered, reduces the brake noise, prevents the reduction of the braking effectiveness in the high temperature range, and improves the wear resistance. [Means to Resolve] In the NAO friction material composition that does not practically contain a copper component, this invention contains the first substance made of such as the calcium carbonate that is the substance which becomes the sintered body during braking and is the precursor of the sintered body which keeps the powder generated from the disc rotor, and the second substance made of such as the fluoropolymer that is the sintering additive which aids sintering of the first substance.

  • Patent number: 11386288
    Abstract: A movement state recognition multitask DNN model training section 46 trains a parameter of a DNN model based on an image data time series and a sensor data time series, and based on first annotation data, second annotation data, and third annotation data generated for the image data time series and the sensor data time series. Training is performed such that a movement state recognized by the DNN model in a case in which input with the image data time series and the sensor data time series matches movement states indicated by the first annotation data, the second annotation data, and the third annotation data. This thereby enables information to be efficiently extracted and combined from both video data and sensor data, and also enables movement state recognition to be implemented with high precision for a data set including data that does not fall in any movement state class.
