  • Patent number: 11182637
    Abstract: Information on an area specified as having an article is acquired, synthesis is performed with X-ray transmission amounts acquired by a plurality of sensors in the same area (for example, the same background and the same luggage), and material information is estimated from the X-ray transmission amount synthesized again to generate a color image. As a synthesis target, for example, combination information of articles accumulated during operation is used, and articles having many combinations are used as combination of articles included in the same luggage. A color image generated by synthesis is used as learning data.

  • Patent number: 10922632
    Abstract: A client device accepts event information for which a people flow prediction is to be performed from a user and the client device inputs the accepted event information to a people flow prediction device. The people flow prediction device outputs a result of people flow prediction responsive to the input event information to the client device and the client device displays the result of people flow prediction to the user. The people flow prediction device performs a people flow prediction by temporally and spatially allocating an event attendance which has been input from the client device to pathways, each connecting a transport facility at which a people flow originates and an event site. Consequently, it is possible to predict a flow of people who attend an event or the like, the people flow differing from that in an ordinary situation, without need to input real-time data.
