Abstract: The transmission unit generates a transmission signal obtained by multiplying a linearly FM-modulated pulse signal by a first window function. The pulse compression unit divides a signal, which is obtained by multiplying a first reference signal obtained by multiplying the pulse signal by a second window function different from the first window function, by a complex conjugate part of a second reference signal obtained by multiplying the pulse signal by a third window function, which is a function independent of the second window function, by a complex conjugate part of the transmission signal, and uses this as a reference signal. Then, the pulse compression unit performs pulse compression on the received signal using the reference signal.

In the server system, a first movement control section performs a control to provide a predetermined identification display on the track of movement of the first character. A second movement control section changes a display mode of the identification display when a second character that is the same as the first character or is different from the first character has moved through a position with the identification display in an overlapping manner.
Abstract: A traveling assistance apparatus controls a safety apparatus for avoiding collision between an own vehicle and an object, based on detection information from an object detection apparatus. The assistance apparatus calculates a predicted time to collision of a target object and the own vehicle, and operates the safety apparatus in response to the predicted time to collision being equal to or less than a predetermined operation timing. In response to a steering operation by a driver for collision avoidance of the own vehicle being performed, the assistance apparatus performs operation-stop in which operation of the safety apparatus is stopped or operation-delay in which the operation timing is delayed. The assistance apparatus suppresses the operation-stop or the operation-delay in response to a target object serving as a collision avoidance target being recognized in a path of the own vehicle after the steering operation by the driver, based on the detection information.
