  • Publication number: 20210304615
    Abstract: A controller of an information processing apparatus disclosed obtains first information about a tendency of move of a user staying in a specific facility. The controller forecasts, on the basis of the first information, an expected destination of move to which the user will move from the specific facility and an expected time slot of move during which the user will start to move from the specific facility to the expected destination of move. The controller calculates the number of users who are expected to move from the specific facility to the expected destination of move in each expected time slot of move on a slot-by-slot basis.

  • Publication number: 20210304616
    Abstract: When an information processing apparatus disclosed receives a signal requesting dispatch of a taxi with information about a desired location of getting-in, it determines a recommended location of getting-in on the basis of at least one of information about a physical condition relating to a road in a specific area including the desired location of getting-in, information about instances of users' getting in and/or getting out of taxis that took place in the specific area in the past, and information about a condition of the road in the specific area. The information processing apparatus sends information for inviting a user to wait at the recommended location of getting-in determined as above to a user's terminal used by the user.

  • Patent number: 7380343
    Abstract: A cutting tool that maintains a compact-sized main body without affecting the usability as well as the dust collecting operation is provided. In a dust cover mounted on a blade case, a dust collection route divided from a saw blade is formed, and an outlet is provided at the rear side of the blade case in the cutting direction. Moreover, the blade case includes a peripheral surface in which an inlet and an auxiliary inlet are provided for guiding air generated by the rotation of the saw blade into the dust collection route from the front side in the cutting direction. Further, a guiding route where a part of cooling air for the motor is introduced into the dust collection route by means of a duct is provided, whereby the cooling air as well as air guided from the inlet is introduced into the dust collection route.

  • Patent number: 5429644
    Abstract: A dense substrate for a solid oxide fuel cell, comprising: a base portion, support portions and fixing portions all of which project from the base portion so as to be arranged sequentially in one direction; grooves formed between the support portions and the fixing portions or between the support portions; and mount portions which are provided on the support portions between the fixing portions for mounting and affixing at least cell sections thereon. A solid oxide fuel cell is easily manufactured at a reduced cost by arranging a plurality of cell sections and, if required, plate sections, on the mount portions of the above dense substrate; affixing the cell sections and, when used, plate sections, onto the mount portions with an insulating bonding agent; and joining adjacent cell sections together with interconnections.
