  • Publication number: 20220007067
    Abstract: This streaming design assistance method assists in the selection of an encoding condition for increasing the watching time in adaptive bitrate video streaming by causing a computer to execute: estimating a relationship between a watching time or an abandonment rate and an application quality index according to a mathematical model on the basis of an actual value of a watching time of each of a plurality of first sessions related to video streaming and an actual value of an application quality index of each of the sessions; estimating the application quality index of each of the sessions for each of a plurality of encoding conditions related to video streaming on the basis of the plurality of encoding conditions and an actual value of time-series throughput of each of a plurality of second sessions; and applying the application quality index estimated under each of the encoding conditions to the relationship to estimate an average watching time of the plurality of second sessions.

  • Patent number: 10921770
    Abstract: A method for manufacturing a machine component includes determining a track of a cutting edge and feeding the cutting edge along the track. The determining a track includes calculating a coordinate (X(t), Y(t), Z(t)) of a first end portion of the cutting edge in accordance with X(t)=(Rsh(t)cos ?(t)?Xchip(t)), Y(t)=(Rsh(t)sin ?(t)?Ychip(t)), and Z(t)=(Zsh(t)?Zchip(t)), where a variable t assumes (N+1) values not smaller than 0 and not greater than 1. ?(t) represents an angle formed by a straight line connecting a point of cutting projected on an XY plane and an origin of the XY plane to each other with respect to an X axis, and ?(t) satisfies a condition tan ? ? ? ? ( t ) = tan ? ? ? · tan ? ? ? s - tan ? ? ? · tan 2 ? ? + tan 2 ? ? - tan 2 ? ? s tan ? ? ? · tan ? ? ? s + tan ? ? ? · tan 2 ? ? + tan 2 ? ? - tan 2 ? ? s .

  • Patent number: 10906151
    Abstract: A method of correcting a track of a cutting edge is provided. With movement of the cutting edge, a point on the cutting edge in contact with the rotation symmetry plane is moved along the cutting edge from a first end portion of the cutting edge to a second end portion of the cutting edge opposite to the first end portion. The correction method includes measuring, by a measurement unit, a shape of the cut and machined rotation symmetry plane, calculating, by an operation unit, an error of the measured shape of the rotation symmetry plane from a target shape of the rotation symmetry plane in a direction of the axial line of rotation, and correcting, by the operation unit, a component in the direction of the axial line of rotation of a track of a point of cutting based on the error.
