  • Publication number: 20190175950
    Abstract: The radiation detection device includes a plurality of radiation detectors arranged in a row and is inserted into the body of patient subjected to the X-ray therapy. An X-ray detection signal (photon) is output from each of the radiation detectors that detects the X-ray applied to the patient. The dose rate measurement device separately connected to each of the radiation detectors obtains the dos rate at the position of each radiation detector based on the signals. The irradiation direction determination device determines whether the row of radiation detectors matches the irradiation direction of the X-ray using the dos rate obtained by each of the dose rate measurement devices. When the row of radiation detectors matches the irradiation direction, the energy distribution analysis device obtains an energy distribution using the dose rate at the positions of the radiation detectors by applying, for example, an inverse problem analysis called an unfolding method.

  • Patent number: 10093313
    Abstract: A decrease in a terminal voltage of a battery is suppressed in a vehicle control device having a function of driving a pump motor to operate an automatic brake, and a function of driving an EPB motor to operate an EPB. When a brake ECU receives an EPB request during the operation of the automatic brake, and an elapsed period after a start of the automatic brake becomes more than a first set period t1, the brake ECU starts the EPB motors. Moreover, when the brake ECU receives an automatic brake request during the operation of the EPB, and an elapsed period after a start of the EPB is not more than a second set period t2, the brake ECU suspends the operation of the EPB, and starts the automatic brake.

  • Patent number: 9505371
    Abstract: An airbag of a head-protecting airbag device includes a bag body, a plurality of mounting tabs for mounting an upper edge of the bag body on the vehicle body, and a tension cloth. The bag body includes at its terminal region in a front and rear direction where the tension cloth is located a terminal inflatable portion that is partitioned from a remaining general inflatable portion by a terminal partitioning portion. The terminal inflatable portion is so deployable that its upper end region be deployed on an inboard side of a pillar. The mounting tabs include a terminal mounting tab located at the terminal region where the terminal inflatable portion is located and a general mounting tab located at the general inflatable portion. An upward protruding amount of the terminal mounting tab out of the bag body in an unfolded state is greater than that of the general mounting tab.

  • Patent number: 8286995
    Abstract: A side airbag apparatus includes an airbag 50 that is inflated and deployed in a space between an occupant seated in a vehicle seat 12 and a vehicle body side portion by inflation gas that is supplied from an inflator 41 in response to an impact applied to the vehicle from a side. The airbag 50 has a lumbar region protecting portion 54 that is inflated and deployed beside at least the lumbar region PP of the occupant, thereby protecting the lumbar region PP. In the side airbag apparatus, the lumbar region protecting portion 54 has a part A at which the thickness in the vehicle widthwise direction is the greatest. The position in the vertical direction of the part A is lower than a highest point B in a front portion of the seat cushion 13 of the vehicle seat 12. These settings allow the part A to be inflated and deployed at a position that is spaced downward from the upper end 63U of an ilium of the occupant P.
