  • Patent number: 11355812
    Abstract: A device includes a battery case (42) that stores a battery (62A or 62B), a lock mechanism (133) that is capable of fixing and holding the stored battery (62A or 62B) in the battery case (42), and an operation member (44) that is capable of performing switching operation of the lock mechanism (133) between a battery-fixed state and a non-battery-fixed state. The lock mechanism (133) includes a movable block (160) which is supported by the battery case (42) in a displaceable manner. The movable block (160) has a battery restriction portion (160b or 160c) which restricts displacement of the battery (62A or 62B) in a separation direction in a state of being displaced to a battery fixing position, and a holding force receiving portion (160d) which receives a holding force for maintaining the movable block (160) at the battery fixing position from the operation member (44) in a state where the operation member (44) is operated within a predetermined positional range.

  • Publication number: 20220050456
    Abstract: A vehicle control system is provided to maintain an SOC level of the battery during autonomous operation of the vehicle. The control system is applied to a vehicle that can be operated autonomously by controlling an engine, a motor, a steering system, a brake system etc. autonomously by a controller, and the vehicle is allowed to coast by manipulating a clutch. During autonomous operation of the vehicle, a first coasting mode in which the engine is stopped and the clutch is disengaged is selected if the SOC level is higher than a threshold level, and a second coasting mode in which the engine is activated and the clutch is disengaged is selected if the SOC level is lower than the threshold level.

  • Patent number: 11229084
    Abstract: A method by a user equipment (UE) is described. The method includes receiving by the RRC entity of the UE, a PUCCH release request from a lower layer of the UE, and applying the default physical channel configuration for a scheduling request configuration for a concerned secondary cell, upon receiving the PUCCH release request from the lower layers of the UE. The PUCCH release request is notified by a Medium Access Control (MAC) entity of the UE in a case that a time alignment timer expires, the time alignment timer is associated with a secondary timing advance group (sTAG) and the concerned secondary cell belongs to the sTAG.
