  • Patent number: 11522188
    Abstract: An advantage is to provide a non-aqueous electrolyte secondary battery with improved heat resistance. A positive electrode active material contains a lithium-transition metal composite oxide containing 80 mol % or more of Ni and 0.1 mol % to 1.5 mol % of B on the basis of the total number of moles of metal elements excluding Li, and B and at least one element (M1) selected from Groups 4 to 6 are present on at least the surfaces of particles of the composite oxide. When particles having a volume-based particle size larger than 70% particle size (D70) are first particles, and particles having a volume-based particle size smaller than 30% particle size (D30) are second particles, the molar fraction of M1 on the basis of the total number of moles of metallic elements excluding Li on the surfaces of the second particles is greater than that of the first particles.

  • Patent number: 11519349
    Abstract: A control system includes a first control device and a second control device. The second control device transmits, to the first control device, a resonance influence torque or a first motor rotation angle speed, and information acquisition timing, which is an acquisition timing of the first motor rotation angle speed. The first control device calculates an engine inertia torque based on an engine rotation angle speed. The first control device selects the resonance influence torque based on the first motor rotation angle speed acquired at a predetermined derivation timing, based on the received information acquisition timing, and derives, as an engine torque, a sum of the resonance influence torque and the engine inertia torque, calculated based on the engine rotation angle speed derived at the predetermined derivation timing.

  • Publication number: 20220385827
    Abstract: An imaging device acquires an image and relevant information of a subject related to the image in a depth direction and performs image processing. A distance information generation unit generates a distribution of additional information (a defocus map, a distance map, etc.) related to the image. A distortion/blur correction unit performs deformation processing on the acquired image and performs deformation processing on the distribution of the additional information according to the deformation of the image. A color information conversion processing unit performs processing of converting the distribution of the additional information into color information. A superimposition processing unit outputs an image obtained by superimposing image information, which has been obtained by converting the distribution of the additional information into the color information, on the deformation-processed captured image to a display unit.
