  • Publication number: 20220017331
    Abstract: An elevator control apparatus improves car position detection accuracy without increasing the number of sensors. A position detection sensor installed on a caroutputs a detection signal when an object installed in a hoistway is detected. A controller corrects a position of the car calculated on the basis of a pulse signal that an encoder which rotates in accordance with ascending and descending of the car outputs, in accordance with a position of the object to be detected. A storage device stores data on the position of the car calculated prior to a time point when the detection signal is received. A correction amount of the position of the car is calculated on the basis of a communication delay time and the data which is stored in the storage device, and the position of the car is corrected in accordance with the correction amount.

  • Publication number: 20210364552
    Abstract: An optical probe includes a first region and a second region connected to have a continuous optical waveguide in which a transmission mode is a single mode. The first region connected to a tip-end surface opposed to an optical device includes a region in which a mode field diameter that is maximum at the tip-end surface is gradually decreased toward a boundary between the first region and the second region. The tip-end surface is a curved surface and has a radius of curvature set so that an advancing direction of an optical signal entering through the tip-end surface approximates in parallel to a central-axis direction of the optical waveguide.

  • Publication number: 20210309491
    Abstract: A method having a first step in which a radio signal transmitting unit transmits a radio signal carrying a piece of information corresponding to a first event which occurred to a signal comparison unit and, upon occurrence of the first event or a second event occurring simultaneously or virtually simultaneously with the first event, a wired signal transmitting unit transmits a wired signal carrying a piece of information corresponding to the first or second event to the signal comparison unit and a second step in which the signal comparison unit judges reliability of the radio signal based on the radio signal and the wired signal. In the second step, the signal comparison unit judges reliability of the radio signal based on the pieces of information respectively carried by the radio signal and the wired signal and a temporal difference between reception timings of the radio signal and the wired signal.

  • Patent number: 11058136
    Abstract: Low-salt processed foods or drinks frequently taste like something is missing because of the less salty taste thereof. Although salt substitutes and flavoring agents are often used to offer a sense of satisfaction, these additives exhibit only limited effects or cause some troubles of, for example, changing the original flavor of food. Under these circumstances, the present invention addresses the problem of enhancing the salty taste of a low-salt processed food or drink without imparting any undesired taste thereto. To solve the above problem, the present inventors conducted intensive studies and, as a result, found that an effect of comfortably and naturally enhancing salty taste can be achieved by adding a composition, which comprises dietary fibers, in particular, glucan and mannan at a specific ratio, to common processed foods or drinks including low-salt processed foods or drinks.
