Abstract: A wing flapping apparatus including a frame body, a motive power source and a power transmission mechanism that transmits motive power generated in the motive power source to drive a wing unit. Moreover, the power transmission mechanism includes a slider that linearly reciprocates in an X-axis direction upon reception of the motive power transmitted from the motive power source, and a rotating body that reciprocates in a rotation direction upon reception of the motive power transmitted from the slider. Furthermore, the wing unit swings such that its distal end moves approximately in the X-axis direction as the rotating body reciprocates in the rotation direction. In this aspect, linear reciprocation of the slider and swinging of the wing unit in the X-axis direction are opposite in direction to each other.

An article to be printed after the above article is mounted into a second holder in parallel with at least a part of the forward movement, the printing and a return movement. This is capable of printing on the articles in a short throughput time also when the articles are those having a three-dimensional shape such as bottles and in-vehicle components.

Abstract: When it is confirmed that a user exists based on an image of the situation outside a vehicle which is captured using a camera and a proximity sensor detects a fact that the user is approaching based on, for example, a putting of a hand of the user over the proximity sensor, a control device causes a ramp to be extended. As such, a user sitting in a wheelchair can cause the ramp to be extended by approaching the proximity sensor, such as the putting of the user's hand over the proximity sensor such that the user sitting in the wheelchair does not have to press an extension/storage button provided on the vehicle to cause the ramp to be extended.
Abstract: A ramp system for a vehicle includes a control device. Using an obstacle detection device, the control device determines whether an obstacle exists within a ramp extension area. Upon determining that an obstacle exists within the ramp extension area, the control device causes a vehicle to move to a location in which no obstacle exists within the ramp extension area.
