  • Publication number: 20210286709
    Abstract: Definition data is data that defines a rule for determining that an object is displayed properly for each type of object to be displayed on a screen of an application. Image data is data that records a screen of the application during execution of the application. An anomaly detection unit of a screen test apparatus extracts at least one type of object from the image data. The anomaly detection unit refers to the definition data to determine whether a rule corresponding to a type of an extracted object is followed, so as to detect an anomaly in the screen of the application recorded in the image data.

  • Publication number: 20210069583
    Abstract: [Object] To provide a haptic presentation apparatus capable of quickly deforming a surface. [Solving Means] A haptic presentation apparatus includes a base material, an elastic layer, and a fluid transport apparatus. The base material forms a first space and includes a first through hole. The elastic layer covers a surface of the base material including the first through hole. The fluid transport apparatus injects fluid between the elastic layer and the base material via the first through hole. The elastic layer is expanded by injecting the fluid from the fluid transport apparatus such that an internal pressure of a second space between the elastic layer and the base material is higher than an internal pressure of the first space, and the fluid injected into the second space is vented to outside of the second space via a second through hole by stopping driving of the fluid transport apparatus.

  • Patent number: 10817107
    Abstract: A display unit has a flexible display section, a detection section for detecting a deflection amount and a deflection direction of the display section, a determination section for determining a visible portion and a non-visible portion of the display section based on the deflection amount and the deflection direction, and a control section for controlling display contents of the display section. The control section either prevents an image display on the non-visible portion or displays one of a fixed image or a pre-set moving image on the non-visible portion. The display unit also includes a displacement sensor located in the same region as the display section.

  • Patent number: 10743156
    Abstract: An in-vehicle device performing communication with a mobile terminal device includes a vehicle exterior communication unit, an in-vehicle detection unit that detects a vehicle present location, a vehicle interior communication unit that acquires detection information on an object from a detection unit, and an in-vehicle control unit that generates recognition information including position information on the object based on vehicle position information indicating the vehicle present location and the detection information on the object and makes the vehicle exterior communication unit deliver the recognition information. The vehicle exterior communication unit receives existence notification information transmitted from the mobile terminal device when the mobile terminal device receiving the recognition information judges that the in-vehicle device has not recognized existence of a first object equipped with the mobile terminal device.
