  • Publication number: 20210357635
    Abstract: A similarity calculation unit (213) treats each of a plurality of classifications as a target classification, and calculates a similarity between a reference feature value, which is a feature value extracted from image data of the target classification, and a recognition feature value, which is a feature value extracted from recognition target data, which is image data to be recognized. An influence calculation unit (214) calculates an influence on the similarity with regard to each partial image of the recognition target data by taking as input the similarity with regard to each of the classifications and the recognition feature value. A feature identification unit (215) changes the recognition feature value in accordance with the influence.

  • Publication number: 20210272395
    Abstract: Generally, the current threshold value is set as a fixed value. Therefore, even in a case where an abnormality occurs in the load and the resistance value is small, when the power supply voltage applied to the load is low, the current value is also low, and falls below the threshold value, and there is a possibility that the overcurrent is not detected. In the present invention, by providing a second detection means that detects a load abnormality by calculating the resistance value of the load from information of the power supply voltage applied to the load, in addition to a first detection means that detects an overcurrent state that indicates the load abnormality using only current value information, it is possible to detect an overcurrent indicating an abnormality of the load even when the power supply voltage applied to the load is low.

  • Publication number: 20210270203
    Abstract: A pressure detection unit detects a fuel pressure in high-pressure fuel passages. A drive control unit controls opening and closing of pressure adjusting valves based on a drive command signal output to the fuel injection valve. An acquisition unit acquires an inflection point of the fuel pressure detected by the pressure detection unit and an inclination of the fuel pressure after the inflection point appears, after an output of the drive command signal. A delay time computation unit computes a response delay time of the pressure adjusting valve with respect to the drive command signal for each of the first on-off valve and the second on-off valve based on the inflection point and the inclination acquired by the acquisition unit.

  • Patent number: 10978916
    Abstract: A power transmission device includes an inverter, an oscillator, a foreign substance detector, and power transmission control circuitry. The foreign substance detector performs a series of multiple processes to determine whether or not a foreign substance is present between two resonators. The power transmission control circuitry repeats a foreign substance detection period and a power transmission period alternately. The foreign substance detection period is a period in which the foreign substance detector performs one of the series of multiple processes. The power transmission period is a period in which the inverter transmits AC power. The power transmission control circuitry also causes the foreign substance detector to divide the series of multiple processes and determine whether or not the foreign substance is present as a result of performing all of the divided series of multiple processes.
