Abstract: When a swing motor and a boom cylinder are driven simultaneously, a hydraulic drive system appropriately adjusts a distribution of torques between hydraulic pumps and feeds back a torque actually consumed by the hydraulic pump for actuating the swing motor accurately to the hydraulic pump for actuating the boom cylinder. To that end, when boom raising and swinging are performed simultaneously, the hydraulic drive system corrects an allowable torque of a hydraulic pump 302 that supplies a hydraulic fluid to a swing motor 3c so as to be lowered by a certain ratio, reducing allowable torques of hydraulic pumps 102 and 202 that supply a hydraulic fluid to a boom cylinder 3a by torques consumed by the hydraulic pumps 102 and 202 that supply a hydraulic fluid to the swing motor 3c.

Abstract: A communication terminal includes an interface and circuitry. The interface communicates with a counterpart communication terminal to share data with the counterpart communication terminal that is input with first image data. The circuitry causes a display to display an image associated with second image data. The second image data is compressed data of the first image data. The circuitry further transmits, to a server, a capture image acquisition request that is a request for a capture image corresponding to the image associated with the second image data and displayed on the display. The server manages shared data to be shared with the counterpart communication terminal. The circuitry further receives, from the server, capture image data of an image associated with the first image data. The capture image data is acquired by the counterpart communication terminal in response to the capture image acquisition request.
