  • Patent number: 7724379
    Abstract: It is possible to measure a 3-dimensional shape by using a projector and an imaging device without requiring calibration in advance. A pattern light is applied from a projector to an object and this is imaged by an imaging device to capture an image as an input. An in-camera parameter, an in-projector parameter, a parameter of positional relationship between the camera and the projector are estimated. By using the estimation results, a 3-dimensional shape of the object is measured. When a laser pointer is attached to the projector and a laser is applied to the object for capturing an image as an input, scaling of the object shape can also be estimated. Moreover, when measuring a plurality of objects or measuring the same objects a plurality of times, the accuracy of the 3-dimensional shape respectively obtained can be increased by simultaneously processing the inputs.

  • Patent number: 7637702
    Abstract: There is provided a drilling method capable of improving machining accuracy of a printed board drilling apparatus as a whole by decreasing dispersion of the machining accuracy even if it is a multi-spindle printed board drilling apparatus. A misalignment of an axial center of a drill with respect to a designed axial center in X and Y directions is detected in advance per a certain number of revolutions of each spindle that rotates the drill. Holes of two or more types of diameter are made on a printed board by making holes of at least one diameter, e.g., an exposure master hole, per each spindle and by making holes of all other diameters almost simultaneously by all of the spindles.

  • Patent number: 7567246
    Abstract: This invention provides an apparatus and the like, which render an object from a predetermined view direction by a method using microfacet billboarding using 2D images obtained by photographing an object to be rendered from a plurality of photographing directions, and a depth image of the object to be rendered. This method obtains the geometrical shape of the object to be rendered on the basis of the depth image and the like, and approximates the geometrical shape using a set of microfacets whose directions change depending on the view direction. By mapping 2D images selected based on the view direction and photographing directions onto the respective microfacets as texture images, an arbitrary shaped object and landscape can be efficiently rendered.

  • Publication number: 20080211382
    Abstract: The present invention achieves a desired white color temperature without deteriorating white uniformity and without lowering brightness in a field emission display (FED). A width of a green phosphor is set larger than a width of a red phosphor or a width of a blue phosphor and, at the same time, a distance between the center of the red phosphor and the center of the green phosphor is set larger than a distance between the center of the blue phosphor and the center of the red phosphor. Due to such a constitution, black matrix widths between the respective phosphors are set to a fixed value. Simultaneously, positions of electron sources are set in conformity with the positions of the respective phosphors. Due to such a constitution, it is possible to realize a desired white color temperature without deteriorating landing tolerance of electron beams or without lowering a utilization efficiency of a phosphor screen.

  • Patent number: 7417366
    Abstract: The present invention provides an image display device in which it is possible to obtain an image display of high brightness and high contrast by preventing the halation which may be generated in a peripheral portion of a display image. By providing a carbon film which attenuates the reentry of secondary electrons, which are generated when electron beams impinge on an anodes, to a back surface of the anode, even when primary electrons impinge on the anode, the secondary electrons are hardly emitted from the anode. At the same time, a trace amount of emitted secondary electrons are mainly formed of electrons having a small energy. Hence, these emitted secondary electrons are scattered and hardly reenter the anode.
