  • Patent number: 10496231
    Abstract: A touch panel having a noise guiding member for guiding noise current such as static electricity generated during operating is provided. The noise guiding member is made of a metal material, and is arranged in a position that a front surface side end portion does not project from a front surface of a housing unit. In a state that a back surface side end portion is connected to the ground G, the noise guiding member passes through a back surface from the front surface of the housing unit. The touch panel can reduce manufacturing costs without design restriction, and control adverse effect subjecting by noise current due to external discharge such as static electricity generated when operating the touch panel.

  • Patent number: 9233693
    Abstract: Provided is a tire sensing system that reduces the power consumption, size, weight, and cost, while suppressing an increase in fuel consumption of moving means. The tire sensing system is adapted to monitor state of a tire or a road surface from vibration information to perform safety control of the moving means having the tire. The tire sensing system includes a sensor disposed in a position of an inner surface of the tire where the sensor can sense the vibration, a receiver for receiving the information sent from the sensor, and a control means for controlling the moving means on the basis of the information from the receiver. The state is estimated from first vibration applied to the sensor upon contact with the road surface via the tire, second vibration applied to the sensor upon departure from the road surface, and a contact time from the contact to the departure.
