Abstract

An AR-HUD system (1) includes a display unit (42), a line-of-sight detection unit, and a control unit. An object detection sensor (10) detects a plurality of objects (OJ) included in the landscape in front of a vehicle. The line-of-sight detection unit detects a line-of-sight (En) of the driver of the vehicle. A distance output device (30) identifies (measures) a real distance (D1) from an eyepoint (EP) of the driver to a specific object (OJ) that is from among the plurality of objects detected by the object detection sensor (10) and that is positioned at the end of the line-of-sight (En) of the driver detected by the line-of-sight detection unit, the specific object coinciding with the focal point of the driver. The control unit controls the display unit (42) and overlays and displays a virtual image (S) on the specific object (OJ), and executes double image prevention processing for matching a virtual image display distance (D2) from the eyepoint (EP) of the driver to the virtual image (S) to the real distance (D1).

Abstract

When a low-voltage battery (23) has become exhausted, power necessary for starting is supplied to the vehicle side from a simple power source (25) connected to an ACC socket (24). The power of the simple power source (25) is supplied to respective power terminals (22c, 22d) of a DC/DC converter (22) or other loads (31, 32, 33), and is used in order to start the DC/DC converter (22). After the DC/DC converter (22) is started, power on a high-voltage battery (21) side is stepped down and supplied to the low-voltage battery (23) side, and the power supply route to the DC/DC converter (22) or other loads is switched. Switching is performed between a normal mode and an emergency start mode by using a mode switch (26) or a relay.

Abstract

The purpose of the invention is to facilitate starting a vehicle when a low-voltage battery runs out of charge in the vehicle. The electrical junction box (10) is equipped with a special simple power supply (25). An internal circuit of the electrical junction box (10) supplies the output of the simple power supply (25) as the operating voltage of a DC/DC converter to activate the DC/DC converter when the low voltage battery runs out. When the DC/DC converter is activated, high-voltage power stored in a high-voltage battery on the vehicle can be stepped down and supplied to a circuit on the low-voltage battery side, thereby enabling normal starting operations such as starting the engine. An emergency start mode can be selected by a user's switch operation or by automatic detection of power supply voltage drop.

Abstract

A fuel MS unit (2) acquires, from a fleet MS unit (2), a remainder that is detected by a remainder sensor by sampling at a prescribed interval and sequentially calculates the average value of the most recently sampled remainder and the remainders sampled a prescribed number of times previously. The fuel MS unit (3) calculates a smoothed average value by sequentially correcting the most recently calculated average value to reduce the difference between the most recently calculated average value and the previously calculated average value and detects fuel theft on the basis of the smoothed average value. When it has been determined that refueling has occurred or that fuel has been stolen while an ignition was off, the fuel MS unit (3) uses the uncorrected most recently calculated average value as the smoothed average value.

Abstract

A cover (4) covers a front-side opening (21) of a cylindrical section (23) of a housing (2) so as to be capable of opening and closing. A ring-shaped packing (5) is attached to the cover (4), and seals a gap between the cylindrical section (23) and the cover (4) when the cover (4) is in the closed position, which blocks the front-side opening (21). The outside surface of the packing (5) is provided with a first rib section (51) which covers an end surface (S6) of the cylindrical section (23) from the front in the closed position, and a second rib section (52) which is provided rearward from the first rib section (51), and is press-fitted in between the cover (4) and an inside surface (S5) of the cylindrical section (23).
