A range switchover apparatus includes a range switchover means operating device capable of switching over a switchover means, which switches over a shift range, among respective shift positions, a drive motor for driving the range switchover means operating device, a measuring device for measuring a time, during which the drive motor causes the range switchover means operating device to switch over between predetermined shift positions, a rotation control device for controlling the rotational speed of the drive motor, a correcting device for correcting the rotational speed by the rotation control device so that when a time measured by the measuring device differs from a target time in a predetermined range, the measured time becomes the target time, and a storage device for storing the rotational speed corrected by the correcting device. The range switchover apparatus prevents a change in rotational speed due to long term change from being generated in a motor for driving a switchover means in an automatic transmission.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
