  • Patent number: 10812705
    Abstract: An imaging apparatus includes: an imager as defined herein; an imaging controller as defined herein; and a display controller as defined herein, the imaging controller performs, as the rolling readout drive, a first rolling readout drive as defined herein, the display controller performs a start instruction of the drawing update process to the display device, prior to a start timing of the first rolling readout drive based on the start timing, and a drawing update timing, at which the start instruction is performed, is a timing that the update timing of the image drawn in the display pixel row corresponding to the specific one of the pixel rows in the drawing update process started by the start instruction becomes a timing after a predetermined time from the start timing of the first rolling readout drive is elapsed.

  • Publication number: 20200208965
    Abstract: An image measurement apparatus, which functions as a non-contact profile-measuring device, includes: an image sensor as an image pick-up device; a variable focal length lens (liquid lens unit) disposed on an optical axis extending from a workpiece to the image sensor; and a controller (image-pickup lens controller and image measurement processor) configured to control the variable focal length lens and process a detected image by the image sensor. The image measurement apparatus, which also functions as a non-contact displacement-detecting device, includes: an image sensor; a variable focal length lens (liquid lens unit) disposed on an optical axis extending from the workpiece to the image sensor; and a controller (displacement-detection lens controller and profile measurement processor) configured to control the variable focal length lens and a detected image by the image sensor.

  • Publication number: 20200029034
    Abstract: An imaging apparatus includes an imager, an imaging controller and a display controller as defined herein, a time required for the first rolling readout drive is longer than a time required for each of the rolling reset drive, the rolling shutter drive and the second rolling readout drive, and in an imaging mode in which the imaging controller performs the first drive while continuously performing the second drive, the imaging controller sets a first start timing of the second drive performed first after a start of the first drive to be during an implementation period of the first rolling readout drive in the first drive, and synchronizes a second start timing of the rolling shutter drive performed first after the start of the first drive with the display update timing that comes first after an end of the first rolling readout drive.
