  • Publication number: 20220144210
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes a processor and a memory. The memory is in communication with the processor, where the memory stores computer-readable instructions that are executed by the processor. The processor performs operations including storing, in association with each other, vehicle position information with which a vehicle is identified, and parcel receipt information with which the vehicle is specified instead of an address or a name. The operations further include specifying the vehicle based on the parcel receipt information. The operations further include acquiring authentication information with which the vehicle is unlocked. The operations further include sending the authentication information to a device.

  • Patent number: 11180405
    Abstract: Provided is a sheet glass production process for properly producing sheet glass having a convex shape in section in a width direction orthogonal to the advancing direction of a glass ribbon. A glass ribbon G2 advancing on molten metal 22 is heated so as to have both edge portions G2B heated more intensely than a central portion G2A in a width direction thereof in an upstream zone of the molten metal bath, and a plurality of rolls 23 are rotated in contact with both edge portions G2B of the glass ribbon G2 such that upstream rolls 23A in an advancing direction F1 have a lower peripheral speed than downstream rolls 23B in the advancing direction.

  • Publication number: 20210326209
    Abstract: An anomaly detector includes a writing unit that writes anomaly detection data readable by an external diagnostic device to an external memory when an anomaly is detected in an on-board device. Further, the anomaly detector includes a determination unit that determines whether a failure is occurring in a memory, which is used when a processor is operated during the writing unit performs the writing. Also, the anomaly detector includes a resetting unit that resets the memory by activating a specified one of reset functions of the processor when the determination unit determines that a failure is occurring in the memory. When the determination unit determines that a failure is occurring in the memory, the writing unit writes the anomaly detection data after the memory is reset by the specified one of the reset functions.

  • Patent number: 11080898
    Abstract: Each of a plurality of slices of medical image data is adaptively processed using a noise reduction mode selected according to a target noise magnitude for all slices to an estimated noise magnitude for the respective slice to obtain consistent processed images for across slices, different size patients' and different reconstruction thickness. Unnecessary noise reduction and over-cleaning images resulting in inconsistent noise-level image data across slices or waxy/unnatural appearing processed images is avoided.
