  • Patent number: 10293309
    Abstract: A new method for generating micro-nano bubbles that uses water hammering, a bubble generating nozzle, and an apparatus for generating micro-nano bubbles are provided to construct a system. The system is for generating micro-nano bubbles in a large amount using only pure water, which does not include any nucleating agents, and for performing not only a clean washing and sterilization but also the generation of uncontaminated micro-nano bubbles. The method defined in the present invention uses water hammering power produced by a mutual collision of jets of dissolved-gas-including solution squirted from two or more spouts.

  • Patent number: 10242475
    Abstract: A driving support device according to an embodiment includes an estimation unit, a rendering unit, and an erasing unit. The estimation unit estimates a running state of a movable body based on an image taken on the movable body. The rendering unit produces a prediction line that indicates a predicted direction of travel of the movable body based on the running state estimated by the estimation unit, and superimposes and renders the prediction line on the taken image. The erasing unit erases the prediction line rendered by the rendering unit in a case where the estimation unit estimates that the movable body is stopped.

  • Publication number: 20150274176
    Abstract: In a vehicle control apparatus, a display device displays a vehicle image showing a vehicle shape viewed from a virtual view point, and a user interface accepts a user's operation. When the user interface accepts the user's operation that issues an instruction for changing the vehicle image, a display control unit causes the display device to display the vehicle image after the changing of the virtual view point. Simultaneously, the display control unit causes the display device to display command buttons corresponding to portions of the vehicle shown by the vehicle image after the changing of the virtual view point.

  • Publication number: 20100289387
    Abstract: A rotation detecting apparatus includes a direct-current motor, a power source part, an energization detecting part, and a rotation state detecting part. The direct-current motor is configured so that an inductance between a pair of brushes periodically changes in accordance with a rotation. The power source part applies a power source voltage between the pair of brushes. In the power source voltage, an alternating-current voltage is superimposed on a direct-current voltage. The energization detecting part detects an electric quantity related to the alternating-current voltage applied from the power source part to the direct-current motor. The rotation state detecting part detects at least one of a rotation angle, a rotation direction, and a rotation speed of the direct-current motor based on a change in an amplitude of an alternating-current component in the electric quantity detected by the energization detecting part.
