  • Patent number: 11967294
    Abstract: A common electrode driver includes an inverting amplifier including a first resistor, a second resistor, and an operational amplifier, and a resistance ratio adjustment circuit that adjusts, in accordance with a length of one horizontal scan period, a resistance ratio being a ratio of a resistance value of the second resistor to a resistance value of the first resistor. A feedback voltage is provided to one end of the first resistor. The resistance ratio adjustment circuit sets the resistance ratio when second driving is performed, in which a length of one horizontal scan period is a second time longer than a first time, to be smaller than the resistance ratio when first driving is performed, in which a length of one horizontal scan period is the first time.

  • Patent number: 11562567
    Abstract: To accurately recognize observed objects. An observed-object recognition system includes an observation region estimation portion, an existence region estimation portion, and an object recognition portion. The observation region estimation portion estimates an observation region that is relatively highly likely to be an observation point in at least one first-person image in a first-person video (a video based on the first-person perspective). Based on the observation region, the existence region estimation portion estimates an existence region that belongs to the first-person image and causes an observed object to exist. The object recognition portion recognizes an object in the estimated existence region of the first-person image.
