A robot control device provided correspondingly to each of a plurality of robots, individually, includes an input interface unit, a control unit, an output interface unit, and a safety circuit unit. The input interface unit receives a signal from an outside of the robot control device. The control unit stops an operation of the corresponding robot when determining that a safety signal is not input to the input interface unit. The output interface unit outputs a signal to the outside of the robot control device. The safety circuit unit has a function of monitoring whether a failure occurs in the safety circuit unit. The safety circuit unit outputs a signal same as the safety signal to the output interface unit when determining that no failure occurs in the safety circuit unit, and determining that the safety signal is input to the input interface unit.

Based on a determination at step 115 as to whether an intake refrigerant temperature Ts is at least -32C, and decisions at steps 145 and 150, either a normal operation or a speed control operation is performed. From a state where the intake refrigerant temperature Ts is less than -34C, which is when a speed reduction operation is performed, if the intake refrigerant temperature Ts reaches at least -32C but has not previously reached -20C, a limited speed operation is performed at step 155. During the limited speed operation, a maximum allowed rotational speed of a compressor (11) is limited to a predetermined speed lower than that of the normal operation. Under different circumstances, if the intake refrigerant temperature reaches at least -32C, the normal operation is performed at step 160.

Optimised energy management and use (OPTEMUS) represents an opportunity for overcoming one of the biggest barriers towards large scale adoption of electric and plug-in hybrid cars: range limitation due to limited storage capacity of electric batteries. The OPTEMUS project proposes to tackle this bottleneck by leveraging low energy consumption and energy harvesting through a holistic vehicle-occupant-centred approach, considering space, cost and complexity requirements. Specifically, OPTEMUS intends to develop a number of innovative core technologies (Integrated thermal management system comprising the compact refrigeration unit and the compact HVAC unit, battery housing and insulation as thermal and electric energy storage, thermal energy management control unit, regenerative shock absorbers) and complementary technologies (localised conditioning, comprising the smart seat with implemented TED and the smart cover panels, PV panels) combined with intelligent controls (eco-driving and eco-routing strategies, predictive cabin preconditioning strategy with min. energy consumption, electric management strategy). The combined virtual and real-life prototyping and performance assessment in a state of the art, on-the-market A-segment electric vehicle (Fiat 500e) of this package of technologies will allow demonstrating a minimum of 32% of energy consumption reduction for component cooling and 60% for passenger comfort, as well as an additional 15% being available for traction, leading to an increase of the driving range in extreme weather conditions of at least 44 km (38%) in a hot ambient (\35C and 40% rH) and 63 km (70%) in a cold ambient (-10C and 90% rH).
