  • Patent number: 11023908
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an information processing apparatus has an interface, a storage device, and a processor. The processor executes a control program stored in the storage device, to accept an image in which a prescribed area in a store has been imaged, via the interface, and detects a direction of a visual line of a person contained in the image. Further the processor determines a commodity which the person has browsed in the store, based on the direction of the visual line.

  • Patent number: 11008996
    Abstract: An ignition timing control device includes bandpass filters each configured to pass and output only a specific frequency band for the output value of a knocking sensor, a storage device storing first learned neural networks configured to receive the output values of the bandpass filters in respective frequency band, and a processor. Each of the first learned neural networks is pre-learned to output an estimated value for a value representing knocking intensity when receiving the filtered output value of the bandpass filter. The processor calculates an optimal estimated value using a part of acquired estimated values for the value excluding a unique estimated value, and executes retarding control of an ignition timing based on the calculated optimal estimated value.

  • Publication number: 20210140531
    Abstract: In a wave generator for a strain wave gearing, a plug outer peripheral surface of a rigid wave plug has a non-circular profile and is fixed to an inner-race inner peripheral surface of a wave bearing by press-fitting and using an adhesive. The plug outer peripheral surface is a groove formation surface in which microgrooves are formed as adhesive-retaining grooves that can retain the adhesive. When the wave plug is press-fitted into the wave bearing, the amount of adhesive that is scraped out from therebetween is reduced and the bonding strength therebetween can be increased while also preventing unevenness of the bonding strength.
