  • Publication number: 20190175854
    Abstract: A fan unit produces an airflow. A pressure difference generating member causes a pressure difference in the airflow. A sensor detects a pressure difference between the air pressure on the upstream side of the pressure difference generating member and the air pressure on the downstream side thereof. A straightening plate is provided between the fan unit and the pressure difference generating member, and straightens the airflow produced by the fan unit. A straightening plate comprises a first fin and a second fin which are arranged along the airflow, and a lattice-like third fin which is arranged on the downstream side of the first fin and the second fin, and through which the airflow through the first fin and the second fin passes.

  • Patent number: 10162361
    Abstract: A steering control unit performs lane keeping control to cause a steering system to operate to reduce a distance between a width-direction center position of a lane and a position where the vehicle is traveling in the lane on the basis of a recognized state of the lane obtained by a lane recognizing unit. A road condition determining unit determines whether the road on which the vehicle is traveling is a straight road. A lane keeping responsivity setting unit sets, when it is determined by the road condition determining unit that the road on which the vehicle is traveling is a straight road, responsivity of the lane keeping control to the distance to be lower than responsivity set when it is determined that the road on which the vehicle is traveling is not a straight road.

  • Patent number: 9900546
    Abstract: A monitoring system has a monitor connected to a monitoring camera and a monitoring recorder via a network. The monitor checks whether the monitoring recorder is in a recordable state or in an unrecordable state of monitoring video data, and if the monitor confirms an unrecordable state of the monitoring recorder, the monitor 3 transmits a control signal for instructing the monitoring camera to start video recording. Receiving the control signal instructing to start the video recording, the monitoring camera records the monitoring video data it takes in its own storage medium.
