Motion recognizing method through motion prediction
A motion recognition method is disclosed. The method includes the steps of: detecting a user's motion in real time by using a motion recognition sensor; predicting a motion pattern to be drawn by the detected motion by comparing the detected motion with pre-set pattern information, wherein the motion pattern includes information on a type of a figure to be drawn by the detected motion and an anticipated time of the detected motion to be completed; and executing a control function corresponding to the predicted type of figure at the time when the anticipated time lapses..

Developer replenishing cartridge and developer replenishing method
Provided is a developer replenishing cartridge excellent in accuracy with which an image forming apparatus is replenished with a developer irrespective of a use environment even when the developer is in a consolidated state. The developer replenishing cartridge includes: a developer replenishing container and a developer, being removably mountable to a developer replenishing apparatus; in which: the developer replenishing container includes a pump portion that operates so that a state where the internal pressure of a developer containing portion is lower than the atmospheric pressure and a state where the pressure is higher than the atmospheric pressure alternately repeatedly switch with each other; and the developer contains toner having a uniaxial collapse stress at a maximum consolidation stress of 10.0 kpa, of 2.5 kpa or more and 3.5 kpa or less..

Oil pressure control device for automatic transmission
When a user performs an operation to switch from a forward range to a reverse range, an ecu switches an oil passage (referred to hereafter as a “b2 pressure supply source oil passage”), through which oil pressure is supplied to a brake, from a first oil passage to a second oil passage while engaging the same brake. At this time, in consideration of a response delay in the oil pressure in the second oil passage, the ecu switches the b2 pressure supply source oil passage from the first oil passage to the second oil passage after a predetermined time α elapses from the point at which the user performs the forward-reverse switch operation (in other words, after waiting for the oil pressure in the second oil passage to reach a threshold pressure) rather than at the point at which the user performs the forward-reverse switch operation..

Methods of dimensionally stabilizing a lumen of a multi-lumen device during manufacture
A method of dimensionally stabilizing a lumen of a multi-lumen device during manufacture wherein one or more minor lumens may contain a fluid that maintains patency of the one or more minor lumens without the need for a solid core within. The at least one second lumen tube may be in fluid communication with a fluid source during the manufacturing process, such as during extrusion and/or mesh overlay steps.
