  • Publication number: 20200135153
    Abstract: A display controller 100 includes an interface circuit 120 that receives abnormal display line detection information from a display driver 300 that drives an electro-optical panel 460, and a processing circuit 130 that controls the display driver 300. The processing circuit 130 performs determination on an abnormal display area based on the abnormal display line detection information. If a specific display pattern is displayed in the abnormal display area, the processing circuit 130 outputs, via the interface circuit 120, image data for displaying the specific display pattern in a destination display area that is a display area different from the abnormal display area.

  • Publication number: 20200052361
    Abstract: A structure in which rods are arrayed is provided by using a raw material such as resin, and a plating layer is provided on its surface to confer electrical conductivity. In doing so, in order to prevent defects from occurring in the plating layer between rods, a gradually-pointed shape is adopted for the rods, such that a gap between rods enlarges toward the upper ends. This makes air voids between rods likely to be discharged with surface tension effects. A ridge to become a waveguide member may also be formed together with rod rows. By adopting a gradually-pointed shape for the rods, gaps between the ridge and the rods also are shaped so as to enlarge toward the rod upper ends, to promote discharging of air voids from between the ridge and the rods.

  • Publication number: 20190284033
    Abstract: In embodiments, a conveying apparatus includes a base, a wheel, a lifter, a lower side distance detection unit, and a control unit. The wheel is connected to the base via a suspension mechanism and is rotatable. The lifter is able to be lifted and lowered with respect to the base in a direction of a conveyance target. The lower side distance detection unit detects a lower side distance between a reference surface of the base and a ground contact surface of the wheel. The control unit controls a lifting/lowering operation of the lifter and rotative driving of the wheel. The control unit causes the lifter to be lifted and lowered based on the lower side distance and to support a part of a weight of the conveyance target, and causes the wheel to be rotatively driven and to convey the conveyance target.

  • Patent number: 10368191
    Abstract: A confined space estimation system, and a confined space estimation method capable of accurately confirming a confined space formed in the event of a disaster, estimates a confined space comprising a storage device which stores information indicating a geographical space, and a processor which divides the geographical space into grids. Based on location information sent from a terminal, the processor periodically aggregates a number of terminals within the grids or a number of terminals that passed through boundaries between the grids, extracts grids or boundaries in which the aggregated number of terminals is a predetermined number and in which there is no change in the aggregated number of terminals, determines whether the extracted grids or boundaries can be linked to form an annular shape, and, if the annular shape can be formed, estimates a geographical space configured from the grids within the formed annular shape as the confined space.
