  • Publication number: 20200363768
    Abstract: A process cartridge includes a seal member contacting an image bearing member upstream in the rotation direction of the image bearing member from a cleaning member and allowing the developer to move from upstream in the rotation direction from the contact part between the seal member and the image bearing to downstream from the contact part while regulating movement from downstream to upstream from the contact part. The developer has surface protrusions containing an organic silicon polymer, wherein either (i) the work function of the seal member is greater than the work function of the developer when the developer has a negative charging polarity and is smaller than the work function of the developer when the developer has a positive charging polarity, or (ii) the absolute value of the difference between the work function of the seal member and the work function of the developer is within a predetermined range.

  • Patent number: 10839692
    Abstract: A driving supporter includes: a departure-possibility-value obtainer that obtains a departure-possibility value; a relative positional relationship obtainer that detects another vehicle located diagonally at a rear of an own vehicle and obtain a relative positional relationship between them; a support executer that executes a lane-departure prevention support; and a support controller that controls the support executer to execute the lane-departure prevention support when the departure-possibility value is greater than or equal to a threshold value. The support controller includes a threshold-value determiner that determines the threshold value to a smaller value when the relative positional relationship is a set relationship than when the relative positional relationship is not the set relationship. The set relationship is a relationship in which there is a possibility of collision of the own vehicle with the other vehicle in an event of departure of the own vehicle from a lane.
