  • Patent number: 8771125
    Abstract: A continuously variable transmission apparatus includes an input shaft, an output shaft, a continuously variable transmission mechanism, a differential gear mechanism and a bypass shaft. The continuously variable transmission mechanism is placed between the input shaft and the output shaft and is adapted to conduct rotation of the input shaft to the differential gear mechanism after changing a speed of the rotation. The bypass shaft is placed coaxially with the input shaft and the output shaft and is adapted to conduct the rotation of the input shaft to the differential gear mechanism while bypassing the continuously variable transmission mechanism. The differential gear mechanism is adapted to conduct the rotation from the continuously variable transmission mechanism and the bypass shaft to the output shaft.

  • Patent number: 8591372
    Abstract: An output-side swing arm is adapted to be swung about a swing axis thereof when the output-side swing arm is urged by a corresponding part of an input-side swing arm, which is driven by a force transmitted from an input shaft. An adjusting mechanism adjusts an amount of swing of the output-side swing arm by changing a location of a point of action of the input-side swing arm relative to the output-side swing arm in a radial direction of the swing axis of the input-side swing arm.

  • Patent number: 8401173
    Abstract: It is determined whether a call-connection condition set to a call-connection device is a first call-connection state or a second call-connection state. When the determination result shows that the first call-connection state is set, a call is connected from an originating terminal to a destination terminal. When the determination result shows that the second call-connection state is set, the call is connected from the originating terminal to the destination terminal and conversation-termination processing is performed without waiting for a disconnection request transmitted from the originating terminal or the destination terminal.
