Fuji Heavy Industries, Ltd. , or FHI, is a Japanese multinational corporation and conglomerate primarily involved in aerospace and ground transportation manufacturing, known for its line of Subaru automobiles. FHI's aerospace division serves as a defense contractor to the Japanese government, manufacturing Boeing and Lockheed Martin helicopters and airplanes under license along with being a global development and manufacturing partner to both companies.It traces its roots to the Nakajima Aircraft Company, a leading supplier of airplanes to the Japanese government during World War II. At the end of World War II, Nakajima was broken up by the Allied Occupation government, and by 1950 part of the separated operation was already known as Fuji Heavy Industries. FHI was incorporated on July 15, 1953 when five Japanese companies, known as Fuji Kogyo, Fuji Jidosha Kogyo, Omiya Fuji Kogyo, Utsunomiya Sharyo and Tokyo Fuji Sangyo, joined to form one of Japan's largest manufacturers of transportation equipment. Currently, FHI employs more than 15,000 people worldwide, operates nine manufacturing plants and sells products in 100 countries. It currently makes Subaru brand cars, and its aerospace division makes parts for Boeing, helicopters for the Japanese Self Defense Force, Raytheon Hawker, and Eclipse Aviation business jets. FHI is 16.16% owned by Toyota.In 2003, the company adopted the logo of its Subaru division as its worldwide corporate symbol.In June 2014, the company entered into a contract with Boeing, as one of five major Japanese companies contracted, to build parts for Boeing's 777X aircraft.

An electric power steering device includes a basic return command value calculation unit configured to calculate a basic return command value in a direction returning the steering wheel to a neutral position, on the basis of detection results of a steering angle detector detecting a steering angle of the steering wheel, a first correction gain calculation unit configured to calculate a first correction gain correcting the basic return command value, on the basis of detection results of a vehicle speed detector detecting vehicle speed, and a second correction gain calculation unit configured to calculate a second correction gain correcting the basic return command value, on the basis of a change amount of the steering torque detected by the torque sensor. The basic return command value is corrected by the first and second correction gains so as to calculate a return command value. The return command value is added to the assist command value so as to drive the electric motor.

JEDI ACE aims to provide an innovative concept of an integrated ice protection system: an inte-grated approach, consisting of combined passive anti-icing coating, active de-icing devices and ice sensors. The system will be applicable to aircraft wings and will support an important technological milestone: the composite wing concept, which today includes also morphing properties. The JEDI ACE consortium, consisting of European and Japanese partners, determined three technical objectives for the integrated ice protection system: 1. An active de-icing device based on electro-thermal and/or mechanical actuation, combined with supporting passive anti-icing coatings 2. An ice sensor system for real-time measurements of ice accretion on aircraft structures, 3. An integrated ice protection system with complementary components for excellent operation properties. The work in JEDI ACE will result in validated design concepts and lab-scale prototypes for the future generation of integrated ice protection systems. The design will contribute to: prevention of ice buildup on leading edges, improved in-flight ice assessment, improved aircraft safety reduced energy consumption during de-icing procedures, reduced de-icing procedures on ground, compliance with design constraints of composite wings including morphing properties, compliance with bleed-air free engines and all-electric aircrafts, compliance with other surface and coating requirements like resistance against erosion The JEDI ACE consortium will develop evaluation devices for all determined objectives on the basis of newest scientific knowledge, combined with appropriate test sessions to validate the performance of the components and deliver the design concept of an integrated ice protection system. This ambitious goal will be achieved by combining the specific SoA competencies through close multinational collaboration.

A hydraulic pressure control apparatus includes a first pressure regulating valve for reducing an initial oil pressure (line pressure) of a working oil, a solenoid-operated valve for converting the oil pressure, which has been reduced in pressure, into a solenoid pressure, and a second pressure regulating valve for converting the line pressure of the working oil into an actuating pressure responsive to the solenoid pressure. The three valves share a single body. Further, an outlet passageway is formed along a thicknesswise direction of the body, with a relief valve being formed upwardly of the outlet passageway.

[Object] To provide a shift control device that, in a shift control device of a vehicle equipped with an idling-stop mechanism and a shift-by-wire mechanism, is capable of preventing setting off at a timing that the driver does not expect when returning from an idling-stop state. [Solution] The SBW-CU (40) that constitutes the shift control device (1), in the case of selection information for selecting the R range being output during an idling stop, switches the shift range of the automatic transmission (10) to the R range when the vehicle is braked, and switches the shift range to the N range or the P range when the vehicle is not braked and the shift range of the automatic transmission (10) is the D range. Also, the SBW-CU (40), in the case of selection information for selecting the R range being output during an idling stop, maintains the shift range without switching it when the vehicle is braked and the shift range of the automatic transmission (10) is other than the D range.
