  • Patent number: 11127152
    Abstract: An indoor monitoring device includes: an image obtainment unit obtaining a captured image obtained by imaging an inside of a cabin of a vehicle by an imaging unit; and a position detection unit determining whether or not an occupant's head is present in the captured image, detecting a size of the head, a head position of the head, and a key point position of a key point other than the head of the occupant in the captured image in a case where the head is present in the captured image, and detecting a seating position of the occupant in the cabin based on the size of the head, the head position, and the key point position.

  • Publication number: 20210150754
    Abstract: A physique estimation device includes: a camera capturing an image of an inside of a vehicle; a skeleton point coordinate acquisition unit acquiring positions of skeleton points of a body image of an occupant included in a captured image of the inside as skeleton point coordinates in a two-dimensional coordinate system of the captured image; a front coordinate estimation unit machine learned such that, by receiving a distance between preset skeleton points and an angle of a skeleton line obtained by connecting the skeleton points with respect to a reference line, a front coordinate that is an arrangement of the skeleton points when the occupant is viewed from front is estimated and output; and a physique determination unit determining a physique of the occupant based on the front coordinate.

  • Publication number: 20190329671
    Abstract: An occupant information determination apparatus includes: a head detection unit configured to detect a head of an occupant from a captured image of a vehicle room that is captured by an imaging device; a sensor value detection unit configured to detect a detection value of a sensor provided on a seat in the vehicle room; and an occupant physique determination unit configured to determine a physique of the occupant from a position of the head of the occupant and a size of the head of the occupant detected by the head detection unit and the detection value detected by the sensor value detection unit.
