  • Publication number: 20200156610
    Abstract: A control device including a valve-opening control unit that reduces the current value below the holding current value and increases the opening degree of the differential pressure adjustment valve when an increase in a manipulated variable of a braking operation member has been detected while holding control is being performed; and a valve-closing control unit that, when a decrease in the manipulated variable of the braking operation member has been detected while the opening degree of the differential pressure adjustment valve has been increased by the valve-opening control unit, performs a pushing process of increasing the current value above the holding current value and closing the differential pressure adjustment valve, and a holding process of setting the current value to the holding current value after the pushing process has ended.

  • Patent number: 10365201
    Abstract: A CPU of an analysis apparatus performs a fluid analysis and derives transient distribution information that represents an accumulation distribution of a particulate layer on an inflow-side inner circumferential surface of a honeycomb structure at a time point after a short time interval ?t (step S130). The CPU then repeatedly performs a fluid analysis by taking into account the transient distribution information derived previous time to repeatedly derive transient distribution information (steps S130 to S150) and then derives post-transient-analysis distribution information that represents the accumulation distribution of the particulate layer at a later time point (step S160).

  • Patent number: 10232363
    Abstract: A safety cabinet has a second operation chamber in a first operation chamber and into which clean air is supplied, a second suction opening for sucking in air in the second operation chamber and a portion of the air in the first operation chamber, and a second operation opening part that is provided facing a first operation opening part and communicates the second operation chamber with the first operation chamber. Airflow containment (air barrier) is doubled with respect to the outside of a safety cabinet. In cases where decontamination and disinfection operations are carried out according to the changeover procedures, intensive decontamination and disinfection of the second operation chamber is sufficient, and decontamination and disinfection of the first operation chamber is hardly required. Decontamination and disinfection operations in the changeover procedures and the like can be carried out in a greatly reduced time.

  • Publication number: 20190023240
    Abstract: A prediction unit predicts a limit time at which a limit request value corresponding to a minimum acceleration or torque is reached when a vehicle is decelerated with only a first deceleration control by a drive device based on change over time of a request value indicating a degree of longitudinal direction vehicle acceleration. A mode determination unit selects one of: a first mode in which only the first control is executed, and before the limit time is reached, in addition to the first control, a second deceleration control is started by a braking device; or a second mode in which only the first control is executed, and before the limit time is reached, in addition to the first control, a braking preparation control is started. A calculation unit calculates an operation amount of the drive and braking devices based on the request value in accordance with the determined mode.

  • Patent number: 9365215
    Abstract: A collision avoidance ECU sets a model deceleration change amount to smaller value in a state in which it is difficult to reduce the speed of a host vehicle than in a state in which it is easy to reduce the speed of the host vehicle. The collision avoidance ECU calculates a first target value by multiplying the model deceleration change amount by the elapsed time. The collision avoidance ECU obtains a subtraction value by subtracting the current reference relative deceleration from the first target value. Then, the collision avoidance ECU determines a target relative deceleration to be a greater value when the subtraction value is large than when the subtraction value is small, and carries out brake control so that the reference relative deceleration approaches the target relative deceleration.

  • Patent number: 9298187
    Abstract: A collision avoidance ECU sets a target relative deceleration to a first target value when a brake control starting condition is satisfied, and carries out a first brake control for bringing a relative deceleration closer to the target relative deceleration. When a reference relative deceleration with reference to the relative deceleration at a first point in time has reached a specified relative deceleration, the collision avoidance ECU determines a greater value for a second target value when the amount of change in deceleration, which is the amount of change in the reference relative deceleration at the point in time, is small than when the amount of change in deceleration is large. The collision avoidance ECU then sets the target relative deceleration to the second target value, and carries out a second brake control for bringing the relative deceleration closer to the target relative deceleration.

  • Patent number: 9283962
    Abstract: An indirect longitudinal acceleration calculation section indirectly calculates longitudinal acceleration by calculating the longitudinal acceleration, which is an acceleration in a longitudinal direction of the vehicle, from change in the speed of the vehicle detected by a vehicle speed detection section. When an uphill travel detection section detects an uphill traveling state in which the vehicle is traveling on an uphill and a drive state determination section detects a no-driving-force state in which a vehicle driving force is not generated, a vehicle drawn down state detection section detects that the longitudinal acceleration indirectly calculated by the indirect longitudinal acceleration calculation section is oriented in an accelerating direction, and determines that the vehicle is in a drawn down state.

  • Patent number: 9238464
    Abstract: An ECU calculates: a free running distance, which is a distance that a vehicle can travel from a first time point at which a speed-reduction control is started to a second time point at which the relative deceleration begins to increase by the start of the speed-reduction control; an increase travel distance, which is a distance that the vehicle can travel from the second time point to a third time point at which the relative deceleration reaches the target relative deceleration; and a post-completion travel distance, which is a distance that the vehicle can travel from the third time point to a time point at which the relative speed is made equal to or less than the specified speed. The ECU obtains a speed reduction distance based on a result of adding up the free running distance, the increase travel distance, and the post-completion travel distance.
