  • Patent number: 10321014
    Abstract: An image reading unit reads a source document image in 600 dpi, and a resolution conversion unit converts the resolution of the image to 75 dpi. An inclination detection unit detects inclination of the source document image. When a character conversion unit is to execute character recognition after cropping, a mode setting unit sets a quality-first mode. The inclination correction unit corrects the inclination of the image of 600 dpi, according to the inclination of the source document image detected by the inclination detection unit. A document image clipping unit clips out the source document image, and the resolution conversion unit converts the resolution of the source document image to 200 dpi. Thereafter, the character conversion unit executes the character recognition.

  • Publication number: 20190135084
    Abstract: In a heat exchange unit, a shutter device is disposed on a vehicle front side with respect to a coolant heat exchanger to open and close a passage for traveling air directed toward the coolant heat exchanger. A blower is switchable between a first blowing state in which air flows from the vehicle front side to the vehicle rear side and a second blowing state in which air flows from the vehicle rear side to the vehicle front side. In a case where a switch that makes a vehicle travelable is in an on state, a control unit switches the blower to the second blowing state, while an open degree of the shutter device is set at a closing side from a maximum open degree of the shutter device when a temperature of the engine coolant is equal to or lower than a predetermined temperature determination value.
