  • Patent number: 10791968
    Abstract: An information processing system inclines processing circuitry that is configured to receive input data from a shock sensor which outputs data based on a shock on the shock sensor, and identify a target segment of time-series data that is output from a motion sensor that senses a motion of an object. The target segment includes a pre-shock portion that occurs before the shock event and a post-shock portion that occurs after the shock event, the shock event is recognized based on the data from the shock sensor.

  • Patent number: 10767088
    Abstract: When conventional photo-reactive compounds are to be liquefied with the application of light, liquefaction thereof is time-consuming due to poor sensitivity to ultraviolet light. In the case of conventional photo-reactive compounds, disadvantageously, light does not penetrate through layers to be adhered to each other when such layers are thick. Thus, peeling is not sufficiently performed. Accordingly, it is an object of the present invention to overcome such drawbacks of conventional photo-reactive compounds and provide a photo-reactive adhesive agent exhibiting high sensitivity to light for fluidization and capable of easy peeling.

  • Patent number: 10743649
    Abstract: The plaque detecting device of the present invention comprises a light emitting unit (450) which irradiates ultraviolet or blue excitation light (L) toward the tooth surface (99a), and a first and second light receiving units (402) which receive radiated light (L?) from the tooth surface (99a). The first light receiving unit extracts the spectral component of a first wavelength region including the wavelength range of fluorescent light specific to plaque from the radiated light (L?), and obtains a first output value corresponding to the intensity of that spectral component. The second light receiving unit extracts, from the radiated light (L?), the spectral component of a second wavelength region containing the wavelength range of the fluorescent light specific to enamel and having a predetermined lower limit wavelength below the lower limit wavelength of the first wavelength region, and obtains a second output value corresponding to the intensity of this spectral component.

  • Patent number: 10625714
    Abstract: Base end sides of washer tubes 44, 45 are arranged in an axial direction of a swinging shaft PS at one end portion of an arm head 40, and they are drawn out from a head side pipe housing portion 41a so as to curve toward a side opposite to a shaft fixing portion 42 side. Each of the washer tubes 44, 45 is wound around the shaft fixing portion 42 during swinging of the arm head 40 without applying any load to the swinging shaft PS. No tension acts on each of the washer tubes 44, 45, and each of the washer tubes 44, 45 is not rubbed against the shaft fixing portion 42. Therefore, deterioration of the washer tubes 44, 45 can be suppressed. When the washer tubes 44, 45 are wound around the shaft fixing portion 42, a periphery of the shaft fixing portion 42 is suppressed from swelling outward in a radial direction thereof. This makes it possible to prevent the arm head 40 around the swinging shaft PS from increasing in size.

    Abstract: A scroll compressor includes a fixed scroll and an orbiting scroll. An orbiting angle of the orbiting scroll when a compression chamber is formed and compression of fluid is initiated is referred to as an orbiting initiation angle. An orbiting angle of the orbiting scroll when the compression of the fluid is terminated is referred to as an orbiting termination angle. An orbiting angle of the orbiting scroll when an end of the orbiting spiral wall initiates contact with an arcuate portion of the fixed spiral wall is referred to as a distal end contact initiation angle. The formation point distance is a peak in at least one of orbiting angles obtained by subtracting integer multiples of 360° from an orbiting angle in a range from the distal end contact initiation angle to the orbiting termination angle.
