Abstract

On the basis of a change in a magnetic field that is constantly received by a detecting element (107) from a detection body (200) consisting of a magnetic body, in conjunction with the movement of the detection body, a detecting unit (101) generates a detection signal corresponding to a plurality of ranges arranged in one direction in the direction of movement of the detection body. A signal processing unit (102) acquires the detection signal from the detecting unit, compares the detection signal with a threshold, and identifies the position of the detection body as the position of any one of the plurality of ranges, on the basis of a combination of magnitude relationships between the detection signal and the threshold. The detection body has a plurality of region portions (201 to 203) corresponding to the plurality of ranges. The plurality of region portions are configured by being connected in a stepwise manner in the direction of movement of the detection body, within the plane of a detecting surface (205) of the detection body that faces the detecting unit. If the detection body is missing, the signal processing unit determines that the detection body is missing by acquiring the detection signal that is completely unaffected by the magnetic field from the detection body.

Abstract

A power supply device for supplying electrical power to an external load comprises a generator capable of generating electrical power by means of motive power from an engine, a housing in which a battery can be housed, a state-determining means for determining the state of the power supply device, and a control means for controlling, by means of electrical power from the generator, the charging of the battery housed in the housing and the supply of electrical power to the external load. The generator has a tank for storing a fuel for the engine. When it is determined by the state-determining means that the remaining amount of fuel in the tank has fallen below a threshold, the control means uses, auxiliarily, electrical power from the battery housed in the housing, and controls the supply of electrical power to the external load by means of the electrical power from the generator and the electrical power from the battery.

Abstract

Embodiments of the present disclosure provide a track prediction method and apparatus, and a device and a storage medium. The method comprises: determining the position information of a reference end point of a moving object according to the position information of the moving object; according to the position information of the moving object and the position information of the reference end point, determining a candidate track set comprising a plurality of candidate tracks, wherein the position information of the end point of each candidate track is different from the position information of the reference end point; and determining a target track of the moving object from the candidate track set. In this way, by considering the position information of the moving object, the reference end point of the moving object is predicted, a plurality of candidate tracks that the moving object may travel are inferred, and an optimal track is selected from among the plurality of candidate tracks as a target track that the moving object travels, so as to more accurately estimate the future motion track of the moving object.

Abstract

Provided is a control device for four-stroke internal combustion engines, comprising: an operation range determination means 200 that determines an operation range for an internal combustion engine 3; an intake air volume control means 220 that, on the basis of the determined operation range, performs switching control such that in a first operation range A the internal combustion engine is in a strike state having a stoichiometric air/fuel ratio and, in a second operation range B, the internal combustion engine is in a lean state, controls the operation state to a first target air intake volume so as to be in a strike state when in the first operation range A, and controls the operation state to a second target air intake volume so as to be in a lean state when in the second operation range B; and an operation range switching determination means 210 that determines the switching of the operation range. The determination by the operation range switching determination means 210 occurs in the intake stroke. If the determination is that the operation range has switched, the control device: controls the intake air volume control means 220 so as to start in a stroke other than the intake stroke so that the intake air volume reaches a target intake volume and completes the cycle by the next intake stroke; prevents NOx emission caused by not achieving the target intake air volume in the intake stroke; and can dramatically reduce NOx emissions.
