  • Patent number: 10459893
    Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is, in a file storage, to shorten an access response time to shared data. When a file storage apparatus receives a command for a specific manipulation of a file system, a specific apparatus determines, based on a state of the file system and a manipulation history, whether or not an unapplied manipulation affects a target of the specific manipulation, the unapplied manipulation being a manipulation which has been previously executed by another file storage apparatus among a plurality of file storage apparatuses and which has not been applied to the file system. When it is determined that the unapplied manipulation affects the target of the specific manipulation, the file storage apparatus applies the unapplied manipulation to the file system, executes the specific manipulation on the file system, and transmits, to a cloud storage apparatus, manipulation information which represents the specific manipulation.

  • Patent number: 10337878
    Abstract: An in-vehicle terminal sends a spoken voice as a voice signal to a relay server, and the relay server includes a voice recognition unit which converts the received voice signal into a string, and a control unit which searches for information stored in a main database or a temporary storage database by using the string and sends a search result to the in-vehicle terminal, and, upon searching for information stored in the main database, stores the search result in the temporary storage database. Upon receiving a voice signal, when the search result is stored in the temporary storage database, the control unit searches for information stored in the temporary storage database by using the string converted from the received voice signal, and, when the search result is not stored in the temporary storage database, the control unit searches for information stored in the main database by using the string.

  • Patent number: 10305410
    Abstract: In a control method for a fuel cell system, a fuel cell side converter that is provided between a fuel cell and an inverter is controlled to step up a fuel cell voltage to an inverter terminal voltage supplied to the inverter. A margin voltage is set to guarantee step-up operation or interruption of operation of the fuel cell side converter. A directly connected state or a voltage transforming state regarding an operation state of an energy storage device side converter is selected such that the inverter terminal voltage is higher than a sum of the margin voltage and the fuel cell voltage. The energy storage device side converter does not transform the energy storage device voltage in the directly connected state. The energy storage device side converter transforms the energy storage device voltage to the inverter terminal voltage in the voltage transforming state.
