  • Patent number: 9794509
    Abstract: A video receiving device comprises a receiver, a transmitter, and at least one hardware processor. The receiver is configured to receive video data and first data from a video transmitting device. The hardware processor is configured to output a moving image, generated from the video data, to a display. The receiver further stops outputting the moving image based on the first data and outputs a static image to the display based on the first data when the receiver receives the first data. While the hardware processor outputs the moving image to the display, the static image is generated from the video data received by the receiver. The transmitter is configured to transmit second data to the video transmitting device based on the first data while the hardware processor outputs the moving image to the display. The second data causes the video transmitting device to stop transmitting the video data.

  • Patent number: 9034502
    Abstract: A battery tray is fixed onto a front battery cross member lower and a rear battery cross member lower. The battery pack is mounted on the battery tray. The front battery cross member lower and the rear battery cross member lower come into contact with a deformable zone of the battery tray and the end face of each of battery cross member uppers at attachment portions. Space is created between the battery pack and the battery cross member uppers. The battery cross member uppers are welded so that a deformable zone having relatively low rigidity is formed. In this way, the front battery cross member lower and the rear battery cross member lower are fixed to a pair of side members through the battery cross member uppers.
