  • Publication number: 20190328304
    Abstract: Joint torque is estimated for a joint of a cyclist using a simple configuration. A joint torque computation system (10) includes a joint torque computation device (12), a detection section (14), an input section (16), and an output section (18). The joint torque computation device (12) includes a data acquisition section (122), a torque estimation section (124), and a change estimation section (126). The joint torque computation device (12) employs load data representing load applied to a pedal, skeletal data, and structural data to compute a change of joint torque when a position of a saddle has been displaced, and to output the saddle position to the output section (18). The change estimation section (126) uses plural estimated joint torque changes to decide a saddle position enabling the cyclist to develop their maximum power.

  • Patent number: 4740096
    Abstract: A printer-utilizing apparatus is disclosed herein, which decides automatically upon power throw whether the apparatus is in print mode or non-print mode and effects initializing of the printer and auto paper feed if the apparatus is in print mode, but does not conduct any printer operation such as initializing and paper feed, if the apparatus is in non-print mode. More particularly, the apparatus prevents unnecessary DC power consumption which otherwise would occur in a compact DC-powered printer apparatus and, when in print mode, conducts printer operations such as initializing of the printer and paper feed as well as notifying easily and clearly the operator that the apparatus has been turned on.

  • Patent number: 4654822
    Abstract: An electronic calculator includes a mode selection key and a memo mode selection key. The mode selection key is actuated to select a memo mode for inputting and printing out memo data and a calculation mode for operating arithmetic calculation. The memo mode selection key is actuated to absolutely select the memo mode during the calculation mode. Once the memo mode selection key is actuated and a print key is actuated to print out the memo data, the calculation mode is reselected, automatically, so that the calculator can continue to calculate.

  • Patent number: 4608557
    Abstract: A graph-drawing machine adapted to print and output numerical data in graph form when numerical data are inputted and a given graph-printing instruction is given. The maximum value or the minimum value of the scale is optionally set by the user in the drawing of the graph. The numerical data exceeding the maximum value or the minimum value are printed in a numeric format instead of being graphed. Incorrectly inputted data can be more easily identified because data which exceeds the present boundaries are printed in a numeric form.

  • Patent number: 4530068
    Abstract: An electronic hand-held memory device is capable of containing character information and numerical information stored together as a pair. Either or both types of information may be outputted, and the numerical information may be used for calculation. Loading and fetching of character information and numeral information are performed upon actuation of keys. The desired key in effect acts as a memory key during a numeral information calculation mode. The desired key may serve as a constant memory key or a memory total key. When printing an output is desirable, the beginning of the character information is aligned with the most significant digit position and the end of the numeral information is aligned with the least significant digit position of a printer.

  • Patent number: 4389641
    Abstract: A display device capable of selectively displaying numerical information or character information. During the mode wherein mainly characters are processed, a specific symbol (for example, a cursor symbol) is shifted digit by digit upon each actuation of a specific key (for example, a cursor key) and a character corresponding to the symbol display is also shifted. During the mode where numeral information is processed, on the other hand, numeral information or character information associated with said numeral information is selectively displayed upon actuation of the above specific key.
