  • Publication number: 20230182305
    Abstract: A cooperation system that allows a robot and one or more operators to work together in cooperation, the cooperation system includes a calculator, a generator, and a providing unit. The calculator calculates a risk value that indicates a risk of interference between a manipulator of the robot and an object around the manipulator. The generator generates, depending on the risk value, a command that causes the manipulator to operate so as to avoid the interference between the manipulator and the object. The providing unit provides information in which a relationship between the risk value and a position of the manipulator is visualized.

  • Patent number: 10490175
    Abstract: An audio device and an electronic instrument are provided by which a device case can be downsized. An elastic member is interposed between an attachment hole provided in a panel-side sealed frame section of a speaker panel and a projection section of a speaker grill and, in this state, the speaker grill is fixed to the speaker panel by the projection section being subjected to torsion deformation. By the elastic member being deformed inside the attachment hole and coming in close contact with the surface of the projection section and the inner surface of the attachment hole, the attachment hole that is a through hole is filled. As a result of this structure, an attachment hole that is used when a speaker grill is attached to a speaker panel can be arranged at a position where it penetrates to an acoustic space.
