Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/069583
Kind Code:

Abstract:
The purpose of the present invention is to provide an awakening device in which, even when frosting occurs, frost can be removed in a short time period, and sufficient awakening capability can be exerted. An awakening device (10, 10A, 10B) comprises: a cold-storage container (210), the inside of which is filled with a cold-storage medium (HM) of which the phase changes; a Peltier element (220) for cooling the cold-storage container; a cold-releasing heat exchanging part (240) provided to the cold-storage container such that air is cooled by the cold-storage container which has come to have a low temperature; an air blower (121) for blowing air such that the air passes through the cold-releasing heat exchanging part; an operation control unit (310) which controls the operation of each of the air blower and the Peltier element; and a frosting determination unit (320) which determines whether or not frosting occurs on the surface of the cold-releasing heat exchanging part. When the frosting determination unit determines that the frosting has occurred, the operation control unit performs defrosting control for defrosting the cold-releasing heat exchanging part by causing the air blower to operate.
