  • Publication number: 20210302673
    Abstract: An optical receptacle optically couples a light emitting element and an optical transmission member when disposed between the light emitting element and the optical transmission member, and includes a first optical surface that allows incidence of light emitted from the light emitting element; a second optical surface that emits, toward the optical transmission member, light emitted from the light emitting element and advanced inside the optical receptacle; and a diffraction grating disposed on the first optical surface, on the second optical surface, or on a light path between the first and second optical surfaces. The diffraction grating is configured such that zero-order diffraction light of the light emitted from the light emitting element reaches an end portion of the optical transmission member, and that primary diffraction light of the light emitted from the light emitting element does not reach the end portion of the optical transmission member.

  • Publication number: 20210279922
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus (10) is for supporting work by a user who uses drawings for a plant. The information processing apparatus (10) includes a controller (15). The controller (15) is configured to convert a drawing including elements configuring the plant into an abstract model represented by element information indicating the elements and connection information indicating a connection relationship between the elements. The controller (15) is configured to generate display information, when it is judged that a difference exists between one abstract model based on one drawing and another abstract model based on another drawing, for displaying the differing portion in a different form than another portion.

  • Patent number: 11110794
    Abstract: A vehicle control apparatus executes braking assist control to decelerate a vehicle by automatic operation of a braking device. When the vehicle control apparatus obtains a deceleration request from a driver during execution of the braking assist control, while a driver request deceleration requested to the braking device by the driver is constant or in an increasing trend, the vehicle control apparatus executes first arithmetic processing to suppress a system request deceleration requested to the braking device by the braking assist control from being decreased by the braking assist control.
