  • Publication number: 20200331328
    Abstract: A door handle includes a door handle case and an electrostatic sensor provided in the door handle case. The electrostatic sensor includes a detection electrode that is formed of a flat conductor plate, or that is formed on a surface of a flat substrate or within a flat substrate. The detection electrode includes a middle portion in a longitudinal direction of the detection electrode and includes peripheral portions proximal to both end portions of the detection electrode in the longitudinal direction. For a width of the detection electrode in a direction perpendicular to the longitudinal direction, each peripheral portion is wider than the middle portion, and the width of the detection electrode gradually increases toward each end portion in the longitudinal direction.

  • Patent number: 10599202
    Abstract: An operation signal generating unit 11 and a reset unit 12 are included in a first circuit unit 10 that operates based on a first power supply voltage V1 and an output operation of a second power supply voltage B2 is stopped by outputting a reset signal Sr from the reset unit 12 to a regulator 20 in accordance with an operation signal Si of the operation signal generating unit 11. Hence, unlike a conventional technique, a large transistor for cutting off a power supply line is unnecessary, and therefore a device size can be reduced.

  • Patent number: 10514183
    Abstract: An exhaust gas latent-heat recovery device includes: a heat transfer tube disposed inside a duct through which exhaust gas flows, the heat transfer tube having a water supply inlet into which water to be heated for recovering latent heat of the exhaust gas is supplied and a water supply outlet through which the water to be heated is discharged; and a water supply control part configured to control supply of the water to be heated to the water supply inlet. The water supply control part is configured to control supply of the water to be heated from the water supply inlet so that an outlet temperature being a temperature of the water to be heated at the water supply outlet is at a set temperature.

  • Publication number: 20190324520
    Abstract: A wakeup process of a living body tactile sensor and a wearing determination unit is performed when an accelerometer detects an acceleration. Accordingly, the living body tactile sensor and the wearing determination unit are in a sleep mode while the accelerometer detects no acceleration. When the wearing determination unit determines a non-wearing state, the wearing determination unit performs a sleep process to switch itself from a wakeup mode to the sleep mode.
