Abstract

The purpose of the present disclosure is to provide an impact tool that allows an improvement in workability. An impact tool (1) comprises an electric motor (15), an impact mechanism, a strike detection unit (49), and a control unit (4). The electric motor (15) has a permanent magnet (131) and a coil (141). The impact mechanism obtains power from the electric motor (15) and performs a striking operation to generate a striking force. The strike detection unit (49) detects the presence or absence of a striking operation. The control unit (4) controls the operation of the electric motor (15). The control of the control unit (4) includes magnetic flux-weakening control which causes a magnetic flux-weakening current to flow through the coil (141). The magnetic flux-weakening current generates, in the coil (141), a magnetic flux for weakening the magnetic flux of the permanent magnet (131). In the magnetic flux-weakening control, the control unit (4) reduces the magnetic flux-weakening current after the strike detection unit (49) detects a striking operation.

Abstract

[Problem] To make it possible to reliably avoid ITS communication congestion at an intersection of streets, and to appropriately assist the passage of an automatic driving vehicle. [Solution] A roadside device 3 of a cooperation source acquires terminal movement information (the number of entering terminals) pertaining to the movement direction of pedestrian terminals present around a host device, and transmits the terminal movement information to a roadside device of a cooperation destination. Upon receiving the terminal movement information from the roadside device of the cooperation source, the roadside device of the cooperation destination determines, on the basis of the terminal movement information, the presence/absence of congestion in communications between terminals at a prescribed timepoint in the future, and if the determination is that there will be congestion in communications between terminals, transmits to a pedestrian terminal 1 an instruction for a congestion avoidance operation that restricts communications between terminals. Upon receiving the congestion avoidance operation instruction from the roadside device of the cooperation destination, the pedestrian terminal executes, as the congestion avoidance operation, an operation for switching from direct communications by inter-terminal communication to indirect communications via the roadside device.
