Abstract: A deposit detection device according to an embodiment includes an adhesion detection module, a moving adhesion detection module, and a determination module. The adhesion detection module detects a deposit region corresponding to a deposit adhering to an imaging device, based on brightness information of an image captured by the imaging device. The moving adhesion detection module detects the deposit region detected during moving of the vehicle as a moving deposit region, from among the deposit regions detected by the adhesion detection module. When the area of the moving deposit region detected by the moving adhesion detection module is equal to or larger than a first threshold value, the determination module determines that there is a deposit.

Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes a controller configured to execute processing of providing an incentive to a first user who sells or returns a first vehicle in which at least a part of a first painting film including an easily peeling layer is peeled off.
Abstract: An information processing apparatus disclosed is run by a business entity that provides the service of buying and selling used vehicles or a business entity that provides the service of leasing vehicles. When the business entity buys a first vehicle having a first coating film including an easily removable layer applied thereon from a first user or receives such a first vehicle returned by a first user, if the first coating film was removed at a specific site, a controller of the information processing apparatus executes a processing for giving an incentive to the first user, The value of the incentive to be given to the first user is calculated on the basis of the length of time elapsed since the time at which the first coating film was removed at the specific site.
Abstract: An information processing device includes a processor configured to provide an incentive to a first user who sells or returns a first vehicle in which a part of a first coating film including an easily peelable layer does not peeled off.
Abstract: A second busbar is provided that has a second electrode terminal and a second connection terminal. A first busbar is provided that has a first electrode terminal, a lateral side coupler, an overhang, and a first connection terminal. The first electrode terminal and/or the second electrode terminal has a protruding piece for connection (connecting protrusion). This protruding piece is elastically depressible in response to contact with an electrode surface of a capacitor element unit inserted from an opposite side of the lateral side coupler across a space between the first and second electrode terminals.
Abstract: Provided is a terminal which can suitably transmit an uplink signal. In a terminal (100), a PC parameter control unit (104) sets a first power control parameter corresponding to a first service, when a prescribed condition relating to a control channel used for transmission of uplink signal allocation is met, and sets a second power control parameter corresponding to a second service, when the prescribed condition is not met. A transmission unit (109) transmits the uplink signal by using transmission power calculated by using the first power control parameter or the second power control parameter.
