  • Patent number: 10771728
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a display (display unit), a camera (imaging unit), sensors, and a controller. The controller determines the state of the electronic device on the basis of a detection result of a first sensor among the sensors. The controller causes the display to display, when the determined state is a first state, a first overlay image in which first sensor information based on a detection result of a second sensor among the sensors is overlaid on an image captured by the camera. The controller causes the display to display, when the determined state is a second state, a second overlay image in which second sensor information based on the detection result of the second sensor among the plurality of sensors is overlaid on the image captured by the camera. The second sensor information differs from the first sensor information.

  • Patent number: 10756324
    Abstract: The positive electrode substrate exposed portions or the negative electrode substrate exposed portions, or both, of an electrode assembly is split into two groups, and therebetween is disposed an intermediate member made of a resin material and holding one or more connecting conductive members. Collector members for the substrate exposed portions split into two groups is electrically joined by a resistance welding method to the substrate exposed portions split into two groups, together with the connecting conductive member(s) of the intermediate member. The resin material portion of the intermediate member protrudes, in the extension direction of the substrate exposed portions split into two groups, beyond the ends of the substrate exposed portions split into two groups and the ends of the collector member to a prismatic outer can. This structure enables enhanced resistance between the substrate exposed portions and the collector member and curbs variation in the welding strength.
