  • Patent number: 10766279
    Abstract: A roll sheet, in which a continuous sheet is wound in a roll form, is caused to rotate in a forward direction to supply the sheet to a printing unit. First and second sensors are arranged at positions facing an outer circumferential surface of the roll sheet and deviated in an axis line direction of the roll sheet. Outputs of the first and second sensors are changed in accordance with a distance to a sheet of the roll sheet. A rotation direction of the roll sheet is switched from a forward direction to a reverse direction on the basis of the outputs of the first and second sensors while the roll sheet is being rotated in the reverse direction.

  • Publication number: 20200239021
    Abstract: There is provided a control device configured to perform a collision preventing control based on an output of an obstacle detection unit. A risk level determination unit determines a collision risk level based on a distance between the obstacle and the electric vehicle. A control level adjustment unit adjusts a control level of the collision preventing control based on the collision risk level. The control level adjustment unit lowers the control level when a releasing unit configured to temporarily release the collision preventing control is operated by a driver during the collision preventing control and causes the electric vehicle to display presence of the obstacle.

  • Patent number: 10597247
    Abstract: Automatic sheet feeding of an installed roll is performed more reliably. To this end, a leading end of a sheet is detected on the basis of a change in an output value of a sensor while causing a roll to rotate in a winding direction using a sensor capable of detecting a distance to the sheet separated from the roll. After the detection, the roll is caused to rotate in a feeding direction, and a feeding state of the sheet is determined on the basis of a change in the output value of the sensor.

  • Patent number: 10421299
    Abstract: In a sheet supply apparatus, a type of sheet to be used can be specified using a sensor that detects a sheet separated from a roll at the time of automatic sheet feeding. The sheet supplying apparatus includes a driving unit configured to cause a roll including a wound consecutive sheet to rotate in a first direction for feeding the sheet or a second direction opposite to the first direction, a sensor that detects the sheet separated from an outer circumferential surface of the roll, and a specifying unit. In a case in which the sensor detects a leading end portion of the sheet while the roll is being rotated in the second direction, the driving unit changes a rotation direction of the roll from the second direction to the first direction and feeds the sheet, and the specifying unit is configured to specify a type of the sheet on the basis of an output of the sensor while the roll is being rotated in the second direction.

  • Patent number: 10205587
    Abstract: Provided is a wireless communication system which enables wireless communication in which crosstalk due to multiple access is canceled while using a large number of inexpensive wireless terminals. In order to generate an interference component, an analysis data sequence is generated by applying a Hilbert transform, by a Hilbert transform, to a subcarrier data sequence obtained by extracting a target subcarrier wave component from a finite length data sequence, while a carrier phase difference ? is estimated by using the regression analysis by a carrier wave phase estimation unit. After rotation calculation configured to return the analysis data sequence by the carrier phase difference ? is performed, conversion into an angle is performed. Further, a multiplication by a desired odd number of multiplication is performed, and then an inverse Hilbert transform is applied.
