  • Patent number: 9893415
    Abstract: Since a front antenna 33 performs road-to-vehicle communication and vehicle-to-vehicle communication with oncoming vehicles, a nondirectional antenna enables effective communication in communication distances. Vehicle-to-vehicle communication with rearward vehicles by a rear antenna 37 needs long communication distances compared with road-to-vehicle communication and vehicle-to-vehicle communication with oncoming vehicles. The rear antenna 37 can also perform communication effectively with rear vehicles since what is selected is a directional one that can provide longer communication distances than a nondirectional one and that has directionality rearward of the vehicle. The front antenna 33 is disposed forward of a seat 7, and the rear antenna 37 is disposed rearward of the seat 7, which can inhibit an attenuation of electromagnetic waves due to the rider and the like.

  • Patent number: 9399354
    Abstract: A treatment-liquid application apparatus includes a rotary treatment-liquid applicator, a rotary treatment-liquid supplier, a transfer rotator, and a contact load adjuster. The contact load adjuster adjusts a contact load of the rotary treatment-liquid supplier on the treatment-liquid applicator. After feeding of a recording medium is initiated by contact between the treatment-liquid applicator and the transfer rotator, an acceleration time until a feed speed of the recording medium reaches a constant speed during printing is set. Before feeding of the recording medium is initiated, the rotary treatment-liquid supplier contacts the treatment-liquid applicator and imparts a contact load L0. During an acceleration operation of the recording medium after feeding of the recording medium is initiated, the transfer rotator contacts the treatment-liquid applicator via the recording medium and imparts a contact load L1, and the contact load adjuster adjusts the contact load L1 to be greater than the contact load L0.
