  • Patent number: 10739476
    Abstract: A seismic sensor that suppresses power consumption operates in a power-saving mode and a measurement mode in which the power consumption is larger than that in the power-saving mode. The seismic sensor includes a measurement unit that measures an acceleration, a filtering unit that, if the acceleration measured by the measurement unit exceeds a predetermined threshold, causes a shift from the power-saving mode to the measurement mode to be performed, and performs filtering on the measured acceleration, an earthquake determination unit that determines whether or not an earthquake has occurred based on the filtered acceleration, and an index calculation unit that, if where the earthquake determination unit determined that an earthquake has occurred, calculates an index value indicating the scale of the earthquake. A shift from the measurement mode to the power-saving mode is performed if the earthquake determination unit determined that no earthquake has occurred.

  • Publication number: 20200228729
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes a detector, a generator, and a compositor. The detector detects a first image region including a specific part of a subject from a first image obtained by photographing the subject. A generator generates a plurality of mask images for specifying a region to be composited with a second image including the first image region. The compositor composites the first image with the second image using the mask images. The mask images each include a region having higher luminance than luminance of the other regions out of regions of the first image, in a region in contact with another mask image or a region overlapping another mask image.

  • Publication number: 20200139701
    Abstract: A controller checks ink quantity to be ejected to a specific area on a first side (specific area ink quantity) and determines an ink quantity ratio. The specific area is a strip-shaped area including a side edge on upstream side in a conveying direction of a paper sheet on the first side. When the ink quantity ratio is larger than a reference ink quantity ratio, the controller performs a black conversion process on pixels in a conversion target range. The conversion target range is a range corresponding to the specific area in the image data of the first side. The black conversion process is a process of converting a pixel to which three color inks, i.e. cyan, magenta, and yellow inks are to be ejected into a pixel to which only black ink is to be ejected.

  • Publication number: 20200142342
    Abstract: An inkjet recording apparatus includes an image forming section, a heater, a first calculation section, storage, and a second calculation section. The image forming section ejects ink onto a sheet in which first to M-th regions are defined (M is an integer of at least 2). The heater heats an n-th region of the sheet using an n-th heat source (n is an integer of at least 1 and no greater than M). The storage stores therein temperature information indicating a first heating temperature for the n-th region. The second calculation section calculates a second heating temperature for the n-th region based on the temperature information and the ink ejection amount to the n-th region calculated by the first calculation section.

  • Publication number: 20200130181
    Abstract: A robot control device includes the following: a main control unit; a servo control unit, which receives a position command ?c from the main control unit; and a bending correction block (24), which corrects the bending of the reduction gear connected to the servo motor. The bending correction block (24) includes the following: a first position-correction-value calculation means (63), which finds a first position-command correction value ?sgc based on the position command ?c; and a second position-command-correction-value calculation means (64), which finds a second position-command correction value ?skc based on the interference torque ?a. The servo control unit drives the servo motor based on a new position command obtained by adding the first position-command correction value ?sgc and the second position-command correction value ?skc to the position command ?c.
