  • Publication number: 20200235677
    Abstract: A power supply device is provided with an output unit, an input unit, a rectifier circuit, a switching circuit, and a controller. The input unit inputs an AC input. The rectifier circuit has a smoothing capacitor and converts the AC input into a rectified output. The switching circuit switches between an ON-state in which input impedance is low and an OFF-state in which input impedance is higher than that in the ON-state. The controller sets a modulation ratio such that, when controlling the switching circuit to switch between the ON-state and the OFF-state, at least a portion of a period, in which the modulation width of the modulation duty ratio becomes maximum, is included in a period from a time when an input current inputted to the smoothing capacitor is generated to a time when the voltage of the smoothing capacitor reaches a maximum value.

  • Patent number: 10295351
    Abstract: A map difference data delivery system includes a map difference data delivery device and a map data holding device. The map difference data delivery device stores map difference data representing a difference between before and after version update and delivers the map difference data. The map difference data includes map elements updated in the version update and dependent map elements by dating back to update of map elements corresponding to a different version. The dependent map elements are map elements that have a dependent relationship and need to be previously updated to avoid conflict with other map elements when updated. The map difference data delivery device groups data of the dependent map elements that have a dependent relationship in the same version.

  • Patent number: 10147009
    Abstract: In a display-object information displaying apparatus, each display object predetermined as a detection target is detected from image data captured by a front capture apparatus to capture of the front of a vehicle. A recognition failure probability that the driver fails to recognize each display object is evaluated. A memory saves the recognition failure probability and display object data containing display-object information with respect to each display object. A display unit displays the display-object information based on the corresponding display object data saved in the memory with respect to each display object. The display-object information about the display object assigned the higher recognition failure probability is displayed preferentially among the display objects corresponding to the display object data saved in the memory.
