  • Patent number: 10918284
    Abstract: Provided is a reliable or accurate optical detection method or such an optical imaging method. Also provided is an application technique using such a method. At least a part of an optical path starting from a light-emitting source or reaching a photodetector includes a plurality of optical paths. At a predetermined position of the optical path, beams of light after passing through the plurality of optical paths are mixed. This mixed light is used for optical detection or optical imaging. An optical-length difference among beams of light passing through the plurality of optical paths may be longer than the coherence length. Means for feed-backing predetermined characteristics of a target to the optical characteristics to be used for optical detection or optical imaging may be included. Such means may be used separately from the above. Such means may be applied to another technique, an application material or an application program.

  • Publication number: 20210002088
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a consolidated transportation method arranges a plurality of baggage in a same transportation area and performs transportation. A consolidation determination item is defined. A first baggage corresponding to an easily transferred baggage item in the consolidation determination item is arranged in a first transportation area and transported. A second baggage corresponding to a highly sensitive baggage item in the consolidation determination item is arranged in a second transportation area and transported. A first transporter includes the first transportation area. A second transporter includes the second transportation area. The first transportation area and the second transportation area are physically separated.

  • Patent number: 10691089
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, an information processing apparatus is used with a network including one or more units each includes a sensor and/or actuator. The information processing apparatus is configured to use one or more computer programs (written in programming languages such as JAVASCRIPT and JAVA) each for controlling the sensor and/or actuator of the connected units. A library (default library/user-defined library) is prepared. The library includes classes each describing a method to control the sensor and/or actuator of the one or more units. The computer program can be created by combining one or more classes obtained from the library. The information processing apparatus is configured to control the sensor and/or actuator according to the created computer program.

  • Patent number: 9743837
    Abstract: According to a measuring method or a control method of life activity, a life object is illuminated with an electromagnetic wave including a wavelength in a designated waveband, and a characteristic in a local area of the life object is detected, or a life activity thereof is controlled. This “local area” is an area constituted by one or more cells. The “designated waveband” is defined based on any one of the following phenomena: [1] transition energy between a ground state of a vibration mode newly occurring between atoms in a constituent molecule of a cell membrane and a plurality of excited states; [2] transition energy between vibration modes occurring between specific atoms in a molecule corresponding to the activity of the life object or the change thereof; and [3] a specific chemical shift value in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance.
