  • Patent number: 11370434
    Abstract: An inter-vehicle communication and driving assistance device performs wireless communication with other vehicles, and includes an inter-vehicle communication unit including a reception level detection unit, a position information reception unit, and an arithmetic processing unit. The arithmetic processing unit calculates inter-vehicle distances to other vehicles using latitude and longitude information of the other vehicles and the own vehicle, receives a position error radius, and acquires a reception level from the other vehicles. When a difference between the inter-vehicle distances is smaller than position error radius, a vehicle with a larger reception level is determined as a vehicle closer to the own vehicle. When the difference between the inter-vehicle distances is larger than the position error radius, a vehicle with a smaller inter-vehicle distance is determined as a vehicle closer to the own vehicle, and a distance to a leading vehicle is calculated.

  • Patent number: 11324150
    Abstract: A first braided wire and a second braided wire that are two cylindrical flexible shield members are fixed with a crimp member at different positions in the circumferential direction on a cross section perpendicular to the longitudinal direction of the electromagnetic shield pipe. Thus, the cylindrical end portions of the braided wires are loosened, and each of sheet-like portions is formed on the end portion, and the sheet-like portions of the end portions of the braided wires are disposed at different positions in the circumferential direction of the electromagnetic shield pipe and fixed with the crimp member on a metal layer of the electromagnetic shield pipe. That is, the braided wires are fixed in a section crimped by the crimp member without being overlapped with each other in the circumferential direction of the electromagnetic shield pipe.
