  • Patent number: 11394908
    Abstract: An imaging device includes: pixels each including a photoelectric converter, and an output unit that outputs a pixel signal based on charge in a holding portion; an output line to which signals from the pixels are output; a clip circuit that limits a signal level of the output line to a range whose upper or lower limit is a predetermined clip level; and an amplifier unit that amplifies a signal of the output line. The amplifier unit outputs first and second signals amplified at first and second amplification factors, respectively, for the same pixel signal. The clip circuit limits a signal level of the output line to a first clip level in a first period in which the pixel signal is amplified at a first amplification factor and to a second clip level in a second period in which the pixel signal is amplified at a second amplification factor.

  • Publication number: 20220203970
    Abstract: A vehicle control apparatus includes a braking controller individually controlling braking forces of braking devices for left and right front and rear wheels, a side collision detector detecting a side collision against a vehicle, and a yaw behavior detector detecting yaw behavior of a vehicle body. If the yaw behavior detected after the side collision is such that a rear of the vehicle body shifts away from a collision side relative to a front thereof, the braking controller executes yaw amplification control to cause the braking device for the collision-side front wheel to generate a braking force larger than the remaining wheels. If the detected yaw behavior is such that the front shifts away from the collision side relative to the rear, the braking controller executes the yaw amplification control to cause the braking device for the collision-side rear wheel to generate a braking force larger than the remaining wheels.

  • Publication number: 20220203943
    Abstract: A vehicle controller includes a collision detector, a braking controller, a motional state detector, and a minor collision determiner. The collision detector is configured to detect a collision between a vehicle and another object. The braking controller is configured to cause a braking device of the vehicle to generate a braking force in accordance with the detecting of the collision by the collision detector. The motional state detector is configured to detect a motional state of the vehicle. The minor collision determiner is configured to determine, based on an output from the motional state detector, that a minor collision occurs that is a collision not detected by the collision detector. The braking controller is configured to cause the braking device to generate the braking force if the collision detector does not detect the collision and the minor collision determiner determines that the minor collision occurs.
