Abstract

A device management system includes: a server; base stations for long-distance wireless communication; and a device that communicatively connect to one of the base stations and that each sequentially transmit, to the server via the one base station, operation information indicating the current operation state of the device. Upon sequentially receiving the operation information, each of the base stations sequentially transmits, to the server, unique information unique to the base station together with the sequentially received operation information. The server sequentially receives, and sequentially stores in association with each other, the operation information and the unique information. When first and second unique information received at first and second times, respectively, are different, the server separately manages first operation information received in a first period ending at the first time and second operation information received in a second period starting at the second time.

Abstract

A noise reduction device includes a processor that converts a noise signal collected by a microphone disposed in a control space into a noise signal in a frequency domain, a storage that stores the converted noise signal in the frequency domain as a reference signal, and a signal generator that generates a noise reduction signal for reducing the noise signal collected by the microphone at a control position of the control space. The processor determines whether or not the noise signal is non-stationary noise based on a frequency characteristic of the converted noise signal in the frequency domain and a frequency characteristic of the reference signal. When it is determined that the noise signal is the non-stationary noise, the processor controls the signal generator so as to cancel generation of the noise reduction signal.

A display device includes: a display panel, a reflective polarization plate, a polarization control panel, a polarization plate, and an optical layer arranged in a stated order. The reflective polarization plate transmits a component polarized in the first direction and reflects a component polarized in the second direction, in light incident on the reflective polarization plate. The polarization control panel is switchable between a first state in which light incident on the polarization control panel has its polarization direction changed and is transmitted accordingly and a second state in which the incident light has its polarization direction maintained and is transmitted accordingly. The polarization plate transmits a component polarized in the first direction or a component polarized in the second direction, in light incident on the polarization plate. The optical layer disturbs a polarization direction of light incident on the optical layer and transmits the light accordingly.

According to the present invention, a state management unit measures or estimates the AC resistance value of a secondary cell at a plurality of time points, estimates a predicted transition of the AC resistance value of the secondary cell on the basis of the AC resistance value at the plurality of time points, and estimates a remaining use period until the AC resistance value of the secondary cell reaches a resistance threshold value corresponding to a time point at which usage of the secondary cell ends. When the remaining use period of the secondary cell becomes shorter than a prescribed period, an operation management unit changes the usage manner of the secondary cell method to a usage manner that has a smaller load on the secondary cell, or stops the usage of the secondary cell.

Abstract

A flying object control system includes a flying object, and a setting base that performs holding of the flying object and releasing the holding, the flying object and the setting base being communicable with each other. The flying object controls, upon receiving a takeoff instruction, thrust for taking off from a predetermined initial position, and when the thrust becomes greater than or equal to a first threshold, the flying object notifies the setting base of a start notification. Upon receiving the start notification, the setting base releases the holding of the flying object and notifies the flying object of a release completion notification. Upon receiving the release completion notification, the flying object takes off from the predetermined initial position by controlling the thrust in such a manner that the thrust becomes a second threshold smaller than the first threshold.
