Abstract: A vibration sensor according to an embodiment includes a substrate, a convex member, and a piezoelectric element. The substrate includes a first principal surface and a second principal surface. The substrate transmits vibration. The convex member is fixed on the first principal surface. The piezoelectric element is disposed within a second fixing region on the second principal surface. The second fixing region corresponds to, in a planar view, a first fixing region of the substrate on which the convex member is fixed.
Abstract: A case including a first case which has a retaining portion provided on an outer circumference thereof, an exterior member which has an engaging portion with which the retaining portion is engaged, and covers the outer circumference of the first case, a second case which is arranged on upper parts of the first case and the exterior member, and a fastening member which attaches the second case to the first case by fastening the second case to the exterior member.
Abstract: A controller device, after switching a traffic signal displayed on traffic signal equipment from a cross inhibition signal to a non cross inhibition signal, makes the traffic signal equipment display the non cross inhibition signal during a second time period before a second set time passes after a first time period ends to switch from the non cross inhibition signal to the cross inhibition signal responding to end of the second time period, if a detection signal indicating a target person of extension is received from a traverser detecting device during the first time period before a first set time passes after switching from the cross inhibition signal to the non cross inhibition signal. If no detection signal is received during the first time period, the controller device switches from the non cross inhibition signal to the cross inhibition signal responding to end of the first time period.
Abstract: The present invention is a printing control apparatus controlling a printing machine, in which the printing control apparatus causing the printing machine to sequentially print, for normal use, a plurality of sets of copies for a printing matter including a plurality of sheets as a set of copies, set by set; the printing control apparatus causing the printing machine to print a sheet for the printing matter for sample use in a page sequence of the printing matter, while a predetermined number of sets of copies for the printing matter printed for normal use is printed; the printing matter printed for normal use is ejected to an output tray of the printing machine; and the printing matter for sample use is ejected separately from the printing matter for normal use.
Abstract: In a folding type portable electronic appliance, the portable electronic appliance is equipped with a main body portion having a wireless unit, a lid portion having a display unit, and a coupling portion for hinge-coupling the main body portion in a pivotable manner on one edge side thereof and for hinge-coupling the lid portion in a pivotable manner on the other edge side thereof. In the portable electronic appliance, the lid portion is foldable with respect to the main body portion, and a camera module is further provided on the coupling portion, which is directed from the main body portion to the lid portion. In addition, the portable electronic appliance is equipped with a camera control unit for controlling an imaging operation of the camera module, a control unit for controlling initiating/accomplishing operations of the camera module and for controlling the wireless unit, and an address/data bus processing unit for controlling data communication operations of the respective units.
