  • Patent number: 10970558
    Abstract: An approximate positions-of-people determination means determines, for each partial area, approximate positions of people on an image on the basis of information about the partial area. A states-of-people estimation means, in addition to predicting the current states of particles from the states of particles indicating past states of people and stored in a storage means, adds new particles and evaluates the likelihood of the states of predicted particles and the added particles on the basis of an observation model generated for the observed people to update the weights of the particles, performs particle re-sampling at a probability proportional to the weights of those particles, and outputs the states of the obtained particles as a flow of people.

  • Patent number: 10950002
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus (2000) includes a determination unit (2020) and a notification unit (2040). The determination unit (2020) determines whether a field of view of a second camera is correct, on the basis of a first captured image (40), a second captured image (50), and relationship information (information indicating the relationship to be satisfied between a field of view of a first camera and the field of view of the second camera). In a case in which the field of view of the second camera is not correct, the notification unit (2040) notifies that the field of view of the second camera is not correct. The first camera is provided in a head-mounted display worn by a person. The second camera is provided in a part other than the head-mounted display.
