  • Patent number: 11829153
    Abstract: An apparatus for identifying the state of an object includes a processor configured to input, every time obtaining an image from a camera, the image into a first classifier to detect, for each of one or more predetermined objects represented in the image, an object region including the object; determine a predicted object region in a subsequent image to be obtained from the camera for an object whose position in the subsequent image is predictable; and input characteristics into a second classifier to identify the state of an object involving time-varying changes in outward appearance. When the object has a predicted object region, the characteristics are obtained from pixel values of the predicted object region in the subsequent image. On the other hand, when the object does not have a predicted object region, the characteristics are obtained from pixel values of the object region detected from the subsequent image.

  • Patent number: 11776277
    Abstract: An apparatus for identifying the state of an object inputs time series images into a first classifier to detect an object region including a predetermined object from each image, determines whether the region of each image is in a mixed state in which the region includes another object other than the object, chronologically inputs characteristics obtained from pixel values of the region of each image into a second classifier having a recursive structure, and applies a recursively used internal state of the second classifier stored in a memory to the second classifier, identifying the state of the object involving time-varying changes in outward appearance. The apparatus rejects the latest internal state when the region of each image is in the mixed state. The apparatus updates the internal state stored in the memory with this latest internal state when the region is not in the mixed state.
