  • Patent number: 11401976
    Abstract: A power transmitting device includes a first rotor and a second rotor rotatably disposed coaxially with a rotational central axis and in facing relation to each other. A first pressing protrusion projecting from the first rotor and a second pressing protrusion projecting from the second rotor are disposed in relative positions on superposed rotation trajectories. A soft rubber member elastically deformable to a large extent and has a small modulus of elasticity and a hard rubber member elastically deformable to a small extent and has a large modulus of elasticity are interposed between the first and second pressing protrusions. While no relative torque load is being applied to the first and second rotors, the soft rubber member is held in contact with both the first and second pressing protrusions, and the hard rubber member is interposed between the first pressing protrusion and the second pressing protrusion with gaps therebetween.

  • Publication number: 20220222974
    Abstract: An information processing device obtains point group data of a photographic subject and obtains a three-dimensional model corresponding to the photographic subject. The information processing device performs first-type processing, second-type processing, and third-type processing in which the respective initial value sets are different. Based on the likelihood of the result of the first-type processing, the likelihood of the result of the second-type processing, and the likelihood of the result of the third-type processing; the information processing device evaluates the result of the first-type processing, the result of the second-type processing, and the result of the third-type processing. Based on the evaluation results, the information processing device outputs either the result of the first-type processing, or the result of the second-type processing, or the result of the third-type processing as the skeletal frame recognition result of the photographic subject.

  • Patent number: 11096657
    Abstract: A laser light source transmits laser light to a tip of an interventional instrument such as a needle via an optical fiber. The laser light is absorbed at the distal tip of the instrument and generates a photoacoustic signal. The laser light source is configured to receive a trigger signal from an ultrasound machine when a laser pulse is to be produced. The light source signals the ultrasound machine when an optical connector is connected to the laser light source to automatically begin a needle tip (NTV) visualization mode. If the optical connector is removed from the laser light source, the laser light source stops producing laser light pulses.

  • Patent number: 10348969
    Abstract: A camera module detects a camera shake in an optical axis in an optical system based on a detection result by a vibration detecting sensor. To correct a part amount of a camera shake, the module controls an actuator in a manner that a correction lens shifts in a plane vertical to the optical axis based on an amount of optical image stabilization. To correct a left amount of the camera shake, the module transmits data representing the correction left amount of the camera shake to an image processing module. The image processing module receives the data representing the correction left amount of the camera shake, and changes an effective region of picked-up image data included in frame data, based on an amount of electronic image stabilization in accordance with the correction left amount.
