  • Publication number: 20190113898
    Abstract: A setting system 1 includes a device configuration database DB1 that stores setting data in a first format in which a device parameter to be set to a field device 11 and identification information that logically identifies the device parameter are associated, and for which authority prescribed in advance is required in order to change the stored data, and in which, using device configuration information specifying the physical structure of the field device 11 and the setting data in the first format obtained by reference to the database DB1, setting data is generated in a second format in which physical information specifying the physical address at which the device parameter is to be set is associated with the device parameter, and is set to the field device.

  • Publication number: 20180136116
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to an inspection apparatus, a sensing apparatus, a sensitivity control apparatus, an inspection method, and a program that perform inspection with improved accuracy. The inspection apparatus includes a detection section for detecting a plurality of different wavelength region components of ambient light reflected from an inspection target to be inspected, and a control section for controlling the sensitivity of each of the different wavelength region components. The control section controls the sensitivity by calculating a histogram indicating the detection level in every wavelength region of light reflected from the inspection target that is detected by the detection section, and determining, based on histograms of particular spectroscopic components, whether or not the sensitivity is properly set for the detection section. The present technology is applicable, for example, to an inspection apparatus that inspects vegetation.

  • Patent number: 9924068
    Abstract: Based on the resolution of acquired image data and a target resolution, a first resolution higher than the resolution of the image data and closest to the resolution of the image data is decided out of divisors of the target resolution. The image data is converted into first image data having the first resolution. The first image data is processed using a filter configured to compensate for degradation in quality of an image represented by the image data, which can occur when the image data is processed. The first image data processed using the filter is converted into second image data having the target resolution.

    Abstract: An image processing apparatus capable of performing pixel synthesis processing at high speed. Synthesis processing of a first object and a second object is performed for an area where the first object and the second object overlap each other. A first image formation processor stores first pixel data, which corresponds to the area, of pixel data of the first object, in a first communication memory and stores second pixel data, which corresponds to the area, of pixel data of the second object, in a second communication memory. A second image formation processor acquires the first and second pixel data from the first and second communication memories, respectively, and performs synthesis processing of the acquired first and second pixel data.
