Method and system for controlling an actuator for a loading surface that is adjustably mounted on a motor vehicle body


A method and a system are configured to control an actuator for imposing forces in an adjusting direction, in particular a vehicle longitudinal direction from a vehicle front towards a vehicle rear, onto a loading surface, such as a vehicle seat, which is adjustably mounted on a body of a motor vehicle. A collision-based event is anticipate or detected, an actuator is activated in response to detection of the collision-based event in order to activate an actuator-driven movement of the loading surface relative to the body in adjusting direction for influencing, and in particular decelerate a collision-based movement of the loading surface relative to the body against the adjusting direction..

Mitigating collisions in a physical space during gaming


To mitigate collisions in a physical space during gaming, a set of physical objects and a user situated in the 3d space are mapped to determine a spacing between an object in the set of physical objects and the user, where the user moves in the 3d space to cause a motion in a virtual environment of a game. A prediction is computed that the user will make a motion in the 3d space during the gaming.

Chromatograph mass spectrometer


A chromatograph mass spectrometer including an optimum gas pressure search controller that performs an mrm measurement for a target compound while changing a collision-gas pressure, investigates an optimum collision-gas pressure giving a highest signal strength based on the measured result, and stores the same gas pressure for each compound in a compound-related information storage section. When a target compound is specified in a simultaneous multicomponent analysis, a control sequence determiner reads the optimum collision-gas pressure and retention time information corresponding to the specified compound from the storage section, prepares a control sequence which sets the gas pressure in a collision cell at the optimum gas pressure at the timing where each compound is eluted, and stores the sequence in a control sequence storage section..

Collision avoidance apparatus


A collision avoidance apparatus includes an obstacle detection unit to detect an obstacle ahead of a vehicle; an approaching object detection unit to detect an approaching object approaching the vehicle from behind the vehicle; and an electronic control unit to calculate a collision time until the vehicle collides with the obstacle, based on the distance and relative speed of the obstacle, and starts a drive support to avoid a collision with the obstacle when the vehicle speed is a lower limit speed or greater, and the collision time is a threshold or less. When there is a likelihood for the object to collide with the vehicle from behind the vehicle, the electronic control unit lowers the lower limit speed, and/or starts drive support when the collision time is the threshold or less, even when the vehicle speed is less than the lower limit speed..
