  • Publication number: 20200337669
    Abstract: A radiation image capturing system includes a capturing room and a console. The capturing room includes a bucky apparatus, a radiation irradiating apparatus and a detecting unit. A plurality of portable radiation image capturing apparatuses can be loaded on the bucky apparatus. The radiation irradiating apparatus is able to simultaneously irradiate radiation to the plurality of portable radiation image capturing apparatuses. The console is associated with the capturing room and obtains capturing order information. The console allows the portable radiation image capturing apparatuses to advance to a capturing possible state when the console judges that capturing in the capturing order information is long length capturing. The console allows only one of the portable radiation image capturing apparatuses to advance to the capturing possible state when the console judges that the capturing is not the long length capturing.

  • Patent number: 10802771
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes a hardware processor that: detects a defect that occurs when an image processor performs an image process on process data; produces verification data when the defect is detected during the image process, wherein the verification data is formed in a case that at least one portion of the process data, to be processed by the image processor, is changed and causes a same defect that occurs during the image process on the process data; and externally outputs the verification data instead of the process data.

  • Publication number: 20200304672
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes circuitry that binarizes image data, a memory, and a print engine unit that forms an image of the binarized image data. When the image data is low in resolution, the circuitry has the image data stored in the memory and thereafter performs on the image data, detection processing for detecting whether or not the image data includes a predetermined pattern before binarization processing. When the image data is high in resolution, the circuitry binarizes the image data, thereafter has the image data stored in the memory, thereafter further performs multivalue converting processing on the image data, and thereafter performs detection processing.

  • Patent number: 10663942
    Abstract: A position control apparatus includes an inversion detector which detects an inversion of a position command and generates an inversion detection signal, a deflection characteristic storage unit which stores a deflection characteristic representing an amount of deflection with respect to a torque command, and an inversion correction calculator which calculates an inversion correction amount. The inversion correction calculator stores a torque command immediately before the inversion, and calculates the inversion correction amount from a difference between an amount of deflection immediately before inversion in which the stored torque command is checked with the deflection characteristic, and an amount of deflection after the inversion in which a value obtained by inverting a sign of the stored torque command is checked with the deflection characteristic. A value obtained by adding the inversion correction amount to the position command value is used for position error calculation.
