  • Patent number: 10909419
    Abstract: An abnormality detection device of an embodiment includes an encoder, a first identifier, a decoder, and a second identifier. The encoder is configured to compress input data using a compression parameter to generate a compressed data. The first identifier is configured to determine whether a distribution of the compressed data input by the encoder is a distribution of the compressed data or a prior distribution prepared in advance, and inputs a first identification result to the encoder. The decoder is configured to decode the compressed data using a compressing parameter to generate reconstructed data. The second identifier is configured to determine whether the reconstructed data input by the decoder is the reconstruction data or the input data and outputs a second identification result to the encoder and the decoder.

  • Patent number: 10897655
    Abstract: To make it possible to easily use video data of raw data of a high frame rate input from a single-chip camera in a server system that is different from an AV server system in which an AV server itself is included. First AV clip data is obtained by performing a compression encoding process to raw data of a high frame rate input from a single-chip camera and is written in a storage. The raw data of the high frame rate is obtained by reading the first AV clip data from the storage and processing a compression decoding process on the first AV clip data, video data of a high frame rate is obtained by performing a demosaic process on the raw data, and second AV clip data is obtained by performing a compression encoding process on the video data and is written in the storage. The second AV clip data is read from the storage and transmitted to a second AV server system that is different from a first AV server system in which an AV server itself is included.

  • Patent number: 10710463
    Abstract: The control device for the electric vehicle determines whether or not the starting operation of the vehicle has been performed by the driver, calculates the disturbance torque estimated value Td necessary for maintaining the vehicle stop state corresponding to the disturbance acting on the vehicle, and performs a control such that the driving torque of the motor converges to the disturbance torque estimated value Td when the vehicle is determined to be just before stop of the vehicle during running or determined to have undergone the starting operation. Then, the control device for the electric vehicle controls the responsiveness of the driving torque to the disturbance acting on the vehicle, and increases the responsiveness of the driving torque of the motor compared with the responsiveness of the driving torque just before stop of the vehicle when the starting operation is determined to have been performed.

  • Patent number: 10355580
    Abstract: A DC-DC converter includes a protection function for handling a reverse connection state, and a protection function for handling a predetermined abnormality other than a reverse connection state, while reducing conduction loss. The DC-DC converter includes a first protection circuit unit, and a switching element on a first conductive path of a high-voltage side switches to an OFF state upon a predetermined abnormal state being detected to prevent a current from flowing into a voltage conversion unit. Furthermore, a reverse connection protection circuit unit and a switching element, on a third conductive path between the voltage conversion unit and a reference conductive path, is configured to switch to an off state if at least a low-voltage side power supply unit is in a reverse connection state, preventing a current from the reference conductive path. Thus, a current is prevented from flowing toward a power supply that is improperly connected.

  • Patent number: 10328803
    Abstract: the control device for electric vehicle in the first embodiment, in the electric vehicle including the motor that functions as the traveling driving source and provides a regenerative braking force to the vehicle, and the friction brakes that provide the friction braking force to the vehicle, detects the motor rotation speed proportionate to a running speed of this electric vehicle, estimates the disturbance torque that acts on the motor, and performs the control such that the motor torque command value converges to the disturbance torque estimated value as the motor rotation speed decreases. Then, when the motor rotation speed becomes almost 0, the control device performs the control such that the friction-braking-amount command value with respect to the friction brakes converges to a value determined on the basis of the disturbance torque estimated value, and causes the motor torque command value to converge to almost 0.
