  • Patent number: 10997743
    Abstract: A decision part decides a representative edge direction using a predetermined angle range as a unit for each pixel area of a plurality of pixel areas of a photographic image photographed by a camera based on an edge angle of each pixel contained in the pixel area. An extractor extracts two of the pixel areas that are adjacent to each other as a pair area among the pixel areas of the photographic image, when the two pixel areas that are adjacent to each other have opposite representative edge directions. A determination part determines whether or not there is an attachable matter on a lens of the camera based on at least one of (1) a number of the pair areas extracted by the extractor and (2) a total sum of edge intensities of the pixel areas contained in the pair areas.

  • Patent number: 8589103
    Abstract: A reference mirror 21 is disposed on a table 2, a first laser displacement sensor L1 for measuring a machined surface of a workpiece W and a second laser displacement sensor L2 for measuring a reference surface of the reference mirror 21 are disposed to a tool holder 3. A measurement motion applying section 24 causes the table 2 and the tool holder 3 to relatively move in a sinusoidal trajectory, and a sensitivity calculating section 28 calculates sensitivity of the first laser displacement sensor L1 based on machined-surface displacement data and reference-surface displacement data which are measured during the relative movement. Subsequently, an actual shape data calculating section 29 corrects the machined-surface displacement data based on the calculated sensitivity, and calculates actual shape data of the machined surface by taking the difference between the corrected machined-surface displacement data and the reference-surface displacement data.
