  • Publication number: 20190317213
    Abstract: A distance measurement processing device according to an embodiment includes an information acquisition circuit and a reliability-degree generation circuit. The information acquisition circuit acquires a two-dimensional distance image having a measured distance as a pixel value and signal information concerning a signal value corresponding to the measured distance image. The reliability-degree generation circuit sets, for each of the pixels of the two-dimensional distance image, each of the pixels as a center pixel and generates a reliability degree based on information concerning the pixels having distance values equal to or smaller than a predetermined value from a distance value of the center pixel among the pixels contiguous within a predetermined range from the center pixel and a signal value corresponding to the center pixel.

  • Publication number: 20190301917
    Abstract: First to eighth laser measurement sections (30a) to (30h) of a laser measurement unit (30) measures a height of a surface of powder resins (15) in a coil insertion range CA for every angular degree in a circumferential direction of a stator core (2). A control unit (18) computes the number of points where the height of the surface is lower than a predetermined height among measurement results at multiple points measured by the first to eighth laser measurement sections (30a) to (30h), where the number of points is defined as an index value indicative of a dispersion of the measurement results. When it has been determined that the index value exceeds a first predetermined value, a notification is issued by outputting from a speaker (32) a sound indicative of the fact that the index value that has been computed exceeds the first predetermined value.
