  • Patent number: 10768617
    Abstract: Provided is a drive assistance device for assisting driving of a vehicle by using an automatic driving function. Assuming various conditions of the driver, a plurality of notification timings to notify of switching from an automatic driving mode to a manual driving mode is set. Notifying a driver who is drowsing at a notification timing of long premature time allows the driver to have sufficient time margin to be ready for manual driving and to shift to driving action more safely. A driver who is reading a book or operating a smartphone is expected to be able to shift to driving action immediately after a notification, and thus it is sufficient to notify at a notification timing of short premature time, which can reduce inconvenience for the driver.

  • Publication number: 20180357668
    Abstract: Provided is an information distribution apparatus which effectively distributes information such as advertisements. An advertisement distribution system predicts seat conditions such as a change in seat occupancy rate with time and distributes advertising information to prospective customers who can visit around the time when the seats are available. By offering more advantageous discount rates, coupons and the like to prospective customers with a short traveling time to a store in a case where seats are already available, it is possible to quickly occupy the seats and recover the seat occupancy rate in a short period of time. On the other hand, a disadvantageous offer is made to prospective customers who arrive after the time when empty seats are predicted since they do not contribute much to the recovery of the seat occupancy rate.

  • Patent number: 9864040
    Abstract: Systems and methods for correcting a location of a terminal are provided. In various aspects, a processor in a position correction apparatus may associate a reference position with the terminal, and determine a range for the terminal based on the reference position. The processor may also associate a second position with the terminal, and determine if the second position associated with the terminal is outside the determined range for the terminal based on the reference position. Upon a determination that indicates that the second position is outside the determined range, the processor may correct the second position to a corrected position associated with the terminal.
