  • Patent number: 11453367
    Abstract: An information processing system includes a vehicle and a server that is able to communicate with the vehicle. The server stores weather information indicating the weather. The vehicle receives the weather information from the server and acquires an image in which a scene outside the vehicle is captured when an operating state of an onboard device is not a prescribed operating state corresponding to the weather indicated by the weather information. The vehicle or the server detects the weather from the image. The server updates the weather information to indicate the weather detected from the image when the weather detected from the image and the weather indicated by the weather information do not match and provides information to a client using the updated weather information.

  • Publication number: 20220250627
    Abstract: An information processing system includes one or more vehicles, and a server communicable with the one or more vehicles. The vehicle acquires an image obtained by imaging a road on which a host vehicle is located. The vehicle or the server determines a degree of difficulty in traveling on the road due to snow cover from the image. The server stores the degree of difficulty in traveling for each of one or more roads, and provides information to a client by using the stored degree of difficulty in traveling for each of one or more roads.

    Abstract: An X-ray image processing apparatus includes a storage unit, a transformed image generation unit, a scattered ray image generation unit, and a scattered ray reduced image generation unit. The storage unit stores a medical image. The transformed image generation unit generates a transformed image by transforming pixel values, of a plurality of pixel values constituting the medical image, which are higher than a reference value obtained based on a representative value of the plurality of pixel values into pixel values lower than the reference value. The scattered ray image generation unit generates a scattered ray image based on the transformed image and a scattering function. The scattered ray reduced image generation unit generates a scattered ray reduced image with reduced scattered rays by using the medical image and the scattered ray image.
