  • Publication number: 20190126943
    Abstract: An information providing system includes a plurality of vehicles, and a server configured to communicate with the plurality of vehicles. A vehicle-side controller of each of a plurality of first vehicles of the plurality of vehicles determines whether or not an act detected by an act detector is an abnormal act that meets a predetermined condition, and, when the vehicle-side controller determines that the act is the abnormal act, the vehicle-side controller transmits, to the server, abnormal act occurrence information including a position of each first vehicle detected by a position detector. A server-side controller collects the occurrence information transmitted from the first vehicles as collected information, and transmits the collected information to a second vehicle of the plurality of vehicles to notify a user of the second vehicle of the collected information.

  • Publication number: 20180372048
    Abstract: A high pressure fuel pump includes: a pump body that forms a suction passage and a pressurizing chamber and slidably supports a plunger; and a control valve that opens a connection between the suction passage and the pressurizing chamber in a suction stroke, during which the plunger is driven toward a suction side for suctioning fuel into the pressurizing chamber, while the control valve controls closing timing, at which the connection between the suction passage and the pressurizing chamber is closed by the control valve in a delivery stroke, during which the plunger is driven toward a delivery side for delivering the fuel out of the pressurizing chamber. The pump body forms a release passage that is communicated with the suction passage. The release passage relieves the fuel, which is pressurized by the plunger, from the pressurizing chamber before the closing timing during the delivery stroke.

  • Patent number: 9804029
    Abstract: With a microspectroscopy device provided with an objective lens with a high numerical aperture, a defocus arises from thermal drift, etc., necessitating auto-focusing. Conventional auto-focus based on through-focus image acquisition takes time, and thus, it cannot be applied to continuous measurement over a long time wherein high-speed sampling is carried out. The present invention addresses this problem by having a defocus-sensing beam that has either defocus or astigmatism fall incident on the objective lens. Since how the image of the spot of the beam for defocus sensing blurs differs depending on the orientation of the defocus, real-time detection of the amount and orientation of defocus becomes possible, and high-speed realtime auto-focus becomes possible.
