  • Publication number: 20230024698
    Abstract: A neural network model that can perform highly accurate processing on input data is provided. The neural network model includes first and second neutral networks, and the first neural network includes a first layer, a second layer, and a third layer. A feature map output from the first layer is input to the second layer and the second neural network, and a feature map output from the second neural network is input to the third layer. Given that the feature map output from the first layer when first data is input to the first neural network is a correct feature map and that the feature map output from the first layer when second data obtained by adding noise to the first data is input to the first neural network is a learning feature map, the second neural network is learned so that a feature map output from the second neural network matches the correct feature map when the learning feature map is input.

  • Patent number: 11448156
    Abstract: An engine control apparatus includes an ignition control section and an injection control section. When partial compression ignition combustion is carried out, the ignition control section causes an ignition plug to carry out: main ignition in which a spark is generated in a late period of a compression stroke or an initial period of a expansion stroke to initiate the SI combustion; and preceding ignition in which the spark is generated at earlier timing than the main ignition. Also, when the partial compression ignition combustion is carried out, the injection control section causes the injector to inject fuel at such timing that the fuel exists in a cylinder at an earlier time point than the preceding ignition. Energy of the preceding ignition is set to be lower when an in-cylinder temperature specified by an in-cylinder temperature specification section is high than when the in-cylinder temperature is low.
