  • Patent number: 10829042
    Abstract: An imaging apparatus includes an image sensor and an image processor. The image sensor has at least one type of color filter and a specific filter disposed thereon in a manner corresponding to each pixel on a light receiving surface. The specific filter transmits light in a particular wavelength range in which spectral irradiance of sunlight is lower than that in wavelength ranges adjacent to either side of the particular wavelength range. The image processor detects an emission state of a particular light source based on a signal component of an image signal generated by pixels having the specific filters thereon. The particular light source is different from the sunlight.

  • Publication number: 20200220743
    Abstract: An activity management device includes a data acquirer, an inferrer, an information acquirer, and an outputter. The data acquirer acquires in-residence data relating to a living environment of a user and acquired in a residence of the user. The inferrer infers a past or future change event in the lifestyle pattern of the user based on the in-residence data acquired by the data acquirer. The information acquirer acquires recommendation information which is information corresponding to the change event inferred by the inferrer and which prompts the user to perform an activity according to the change in the lifestyle pattern. The outputter outputs the recommendation information acquired by the information acquirer.

  • Patent number: 8009224
    Abstract: It is possible to improve a response of a dynamic range expansion processing. The present image signal processing method includes a first step (ST2) of extracting distribution parameters from a distribution of pixel signal levels composing an image signal of one picture, a second step (ST4, ST5) of determining a target value (BP1, BP2, etc.) of a break point based on extracted distribution parameters for a break point at which an inclination of an image signal level changes with respect to a cumulative change of amount of incident light upon pixels of the imaging portion changes, and a third step (ST6, ST7) of controlling the imaging portion so as to obtain a target value and change an output saturation characteristic of the image signal.
