  • Patent number: 10897655
    Abstract: To make it possible to easily use video data of raw data of a high frame rate input from a single-chip camera in a server system that is different from an AV server system in which an AV server itself is included. First AV clip data is obtained by performing a compression encoding process to raw data of a high frame rate input from a single-chip camera and is written in a storage. The raw data of the high frame rate is obtained by reading the first AV clip data from the storage and processing a compression decoding process on the first AV clip data, video data of a high frame rate is obtained by performing a demosaic process on the raw data, and second AV clip data is obtained by performing a compression encoding process on the video data and is written in the storage. The second AV clip data is read from the storage and transmitted to a second AV server system that is different from a first AV server system in which an AV server itself is included.

  • Patent number: 10890562
    Abstract: Under the control of an analysis control unit (5), a mass spectrometer unit (2) performs a product-ion scan measurement for a target component in a target sample within a time range where the component is introduced. It also performs a scan measurement over an m/z range including the m/z of an ion originating from a standard component within the same segment of time. A mass correction information calculator (42) calculates mass correction information from measured and theoretical values of the m/z of the ion originating from the standard component observed on an MS spectrum obtained by the scan measurement. Using the mass correction information, a mass corrector (43) corrects the m/z of each ion peak originating from the target component observed on an MS/MS spectrum obtained by the product-ion scan measurement performed within the same cycle as the scan measurement concerned.

  • Patent number: 10661779
    Abstract: A control system for a hybrid vehicle configured to generate a required power continuously even if a large power is required frequently. An operating mode of the hybrid vehicle is selected from HV mode and EV mode, and in the hybrid vehicle, a drive power established by generating maximum output power of the engine is smaller than a drive power established by supplying a maximum electric power to the motor from the electric storage device. A controller is configured to shift the operating mode from the EV mode to the HV mode when an SOC level of a battery falls below a threshold level, and to raise the threshold level when a required running condition in the electric vehicle mode is a condition that cannot be achieved by the engine without operating the motor given that the hybrid vehicle is propelled in the hybrid mode.
