  • Patent number: 11902799
    Abstract: Point cloud data between a base station device and a terminal station device is acquired as a point cloud data group. A radius of a first Fresnel zone defined by the base station device and the terminal station device at each position where the point cloud data group is acquired is calculated. A region specified by the radius at each position where the point cloud data group is acquired is scanned to detect the point cloud data, and a non-line-of-sight region is extracted. A ratio of a total area of all the extracted non-line-of-sight regions to an area of a region constructed by the first Fresnel zone is calculated. A received power is estimated based on the calculated ratio between the areas. Whether or not there is a line of sight between the base station device and the terminal station device is determined based on the received power.

  • Publication number: 20230384730
    Abstract: A powder conveying device includes a drop conveyance passage, an intersecting conveyance passage, a conveying screw, and a floating member. Powder entering from an inflow port drops in the drop conveyance passage. The intersecting conveyance passage communicates with a lower end of the drop conveyance passage and extends in an intersecting direction that intersects the drop conveyance passage. The conveying screw is disposed in the intersecting conveyance passage and rotates in a specified direction to convey the powder in the intersecting direction. The floating member is movably installed in the drop conveyance passage and floats in the drop conveyance passage to move by contact with the conveying screw. The inflow port and the floating member interfere with each other to prevent the floating member from coming out of the inflow port of the drop conveyance passage.
