  • Patent number: 10593227
    Abstract: A non-transitory computer readable medium contains an evaluation program that causes a computer to perform steps of obtaining a vehicle stability score of vehicle driving skills based on measured data, obtaining a turning performance score of the vehicle driving skills based on the measured data, obtaining an overall evaluation result of the vehicle driving skills based on the vehicle stability score and the turning performance score using conversion information, and conveying the overall evaluation result to an output unit. The conversion information defines the overall evaluation result such that the overall evaluation result decreases as the turning performance score increases if the vehicle stability score is lower than a threshold and such that the overall evaluation result increases as the turning performance score increases if the vehicle stability score is higher than the threshold.

  • Patent number: 8907758
    Abstract: A small reactor with high heat-release performance is provided. A reactor 1 includes an assembly (10) and a case (4), the assembly (10) having a coil (2) and a magnetic core (3) at which the coil (2) is arranged, the case (4) housing the assembly (10). The case (4) includes a bottom plate (40) that contacts a fixing object when the reactor (1) is installed on the fixing object, a side wall (41) that is mounted on the bottom plate (40) with an adhesive and surrounds the assembly (10), and a junction layer (42) that fixes the coil (2) to an inner surface of the bottom plate (40). The bottom plate (40) is formed of a material with higher thermal conductivity than that of the side wall (41). The reactor (1) easily transfers heat of the coil (2) to the bottom plate (40) and hence has high heat-release performance because the reactor (1) includes the bottom plate (40) with the high thermal conductivity and the coil (2) is joined to the bottom plate (40) through the junction layer (42).

  • Publication number: 20140241011
    Abstract: A reactor of the present invention includes a coil 2, a magnetic core 3 in which the coil 2 is disposed, and a case that stores a combined product 10 made up of the coil 2 and the magnetic core 3. The case includes a bottom plate portion 40 made of a metal material, and a sidewall portion that is attached to the bottom plate portion 40 to surround the combined product 10. A joining layer 42 that fixes the coil 2 is provided at the inner face of the bottom plate portion 40. The region provided with the joining layer 42 has been subjected to surface roughening treatment. When anodic oxidation treatment is carried out as the surface roughening treatment, the bottom plate portion 40 includes an anodic oxide layer 43. The surface roughening treatment increases the contact area between the bottom plate portion 40 and the joining layer 42, whereby the joining strength between the bottom plate portion 40 and the coil 2 can be enhanced.

  • Patent number: 7754478
    Abstract: A device for cell culture capable of automatically performing operations for cell culture over several days to several months while minimizing the risk of contamination. A new medicine can be supplied to an incubator means by using a medicine supply means or unnecessary wastewater can be discharged from the incubator means by using a wastewater discharge means without taking out the incubator means disposed in heat insulation box means from a heat insulation box, and the state of the cell culture can be observed with the incubator means formed in the heat insulation box means. Accordingly, the outside air does not enter directly into the incubator means during culturing, and the risk of contamination is completely eliminated. As a result, the culturing operations can be automatically performed over a long period.
