  • Patent number: 11054100
    Abstract: An illuminance obtained by light passed through light diffusion type skylight windows is affected by the weather. This is to solve such problems by polarization of lighting devices and control technology in addition to improvements in the quality of skylights themselves, and the advantages of the high natural lighting offered by light diffusion type skylight windows are now being utilized. A set value that is the result of associating a required work surface illuminance for indoors with the work surface illuminance obtained by light passed through light diffusion type skylight windows and the generated power of a photovoltaic power generation panels is set as a reference for a light adjustment signal. In situations such as winter sunsets and rainy weather which are in a range equal to or less than the set value, light adjustment of lighting devices is performed by a signal transmitted from the photovoltaic power generation panels.

  • Publication number: 20210166711
    Abstract: A recording device records a video and an imaging time, and a voice. Based on the voice, a sound parameter calculator calculates a sound parameter for specifying magnitude of the voice in a monitoring area at the imaging time for each of pixels and for each of certain times. A sound parameter storage unit stores the sound parameter. A sound parameter display controller superimposes a voice heat map on a captured image of the monitoring area and displays the superimposed image on a monitor. At this time, the sound parameter display controller displays the voice heat map based on a cumulative time value of magnitude of the voice, according to designation of a time range.

  • Publication number: 20210142072
    Abstract: In a sound source display system, an omnidirectional camera captures an image of a monitoring area. A microphone array collects a voice in the monitoring area. A monitoring monitor displays the image of an imaging area captured by the omnidirectional camera. A sound pressure calculator in a directivity control device calculates a sound pressure indicating a source of a sound in the image of the imaging area using voice data of the voice collected by the microphone array. An output controller in the directivity control device compares the sound pressure and threshold values (first threshold value, second threshold value), and causes sound image information in which the sound pressure is converted into visual information according to the result of comparison, to be displayed on the monitoring monitor so as to be superimposed on the image of the imaging area.
