  • Publication number: 20190137945
    Abstract: In the case where a ticking timing of a clock unit changes, a CPU of an electronic timepiece outputs a synchronization request signal to a CPU of a display module at the next ticking timing after the change so as to request resynchronization. Each time a timer circuit counts a prescribed number of pulses in a clock signal generated by a clock generation circuit on the basis of the ticking timing, the CPU of the display module instructs a liquid crystal driver circuit to invert the polarity of an AC voltage to be applied to a liquid crystal panel. Moreover, upon receiving the synchronization request signal from the CPU of the electronic timepiece, the CPU of the display module sets the timer circuit to start a new count of the clock.

  • Patent number: 10278597
    Abstract: A pulse data detecting apparatus, pulse data detecting method, and pulse data detection program are provided capable of suppressing an influence of the condition of the body surface to be measured and obtaining an appropriate measurement result under a wide range of conditions. In the present invention, a blood-flow-suppressing-projection protrusion-control mechanism section causes a blood-flow-suppressing projection to protrude to press or compress the body surface to suppress a blood flow on a downstream side, thereby increasing a blood pressure of a measurement region at the time of measurement. A light-receiving element receives reflected light of light applied from a light-emitting element to a skin surface, and outputs an electrical signal. Increasing the blood pressure of the measurement region enables to obtain an output signal at a sufficient output level from the light-receiving element. A CPU calculates a pulse rate based on the output signal from the light-receiving element.

  • Patent number: 10257413
    Abstract: A display control apparatus includes a plurality of image capture units, an output unit, a behavior detection unit, a situation detection unit, a display image generation unit, and a display control unit. The image capture units capture images in different directions. The output unit can be recognized visually by a person wearing the display control apparatus. The behavior detection unit or the situation detection unit detects behavior of the person or a moving situation of an image of a subject in a plurality of captured images captured by the image capture units. The display image generation unit and the display control unit execute control to produce an output so as to make a switch to any of the captured images captured by the image capture units, and display the switched captured image on the output unit in response to the behavior of the person or the moving situation of the image of the subject detected by the behavior detection unit or the situation detection unit.

  • Publication number: 20190094381
    Abstract: A satellite radiowave receiving device includes a receiver and a processor. The receiver receives radiowaves from a positioning satellite. The processor performs a positioning operation based on the radiowaves received by the receiver to obtain a current position. The processor calculates an error range at the current position based on a positioning accuracy and a deviation. The positioning accuracy is obtained by combining each position of a plurality of positioning satellites and receiving state of radiowaves from each of the plurality of positioning satellites, and the deviation is a deviation of the current position and a predicted position calculated in accordance with a travelling state of the satellite radiowave receiving device.
