(54) Title (JA): 中継装置及びその制御方法

(57) Abstract:
(EN): This control method of one embodiment is for a relay device that wirelessly connects to a higher-level device and wirelessly relays communication between the higher-level device and a lower-level device. The control method includes: detecting a failed connection to the lower-level device, after wirelessly connecting to the upper-level device; and carrying out prescribed control for releasing the wireless connection between the relay device and the lower-level device, on the basis of failing to reestablish connection after the failed connection.
(FR): La présente invention concerne, selon un mode de réalisation, un procédé de commande pour un dispositif de relais qui se connecte sans fil à un dispositif de niveau supérieur et relaie sans fil une communication entre le dispositif de niveau supérieur et un dispositif de niveau inférieur. Le procédé de commande comprend les étapes consistant à: détecter une connexion défaillante au dispositif de niveau inférieur, après s'être connecté sans fil au dispositif de niveau supérieur; et réaliser une commande prescrite pour libérer la connexion sans fil entre le dispositif de relais et le dispositif de niveau inférieur, sur la base d'un échec du rétablissement de la connexion après la connexion défaillante.
(JA): 第1の態様に係る方法は、上位装置に無線で接続し、前記上位装置と下位装置との間の通信を無線で中継する中継装置の制御方法である。前記制御方法は、前記上位装置に無線で接続した後、前記上位装置との接続障害を検知することと、前記接続障害後における接続再確立に失敗したことに基づいて、前記中継装置と前記下位装置との間の無線接続を解放させる所定制御を行うことと、を含む。
