  • Publication number: 20210271942
    Abstract: To reduce a feedback delay as much as possible while maintaining the suppression effect of the tone variation in a case where tone correction is performed real time during processing of a print job. The density reference value for tone correction is managed in association with the sheet type registered for the feeding cassette of the printing apparatus. Due to this, even in a case where print jobs are switched, the feedback of a parameter necessary for tone correction is not interrupted unless the sheet type registered for the feeding cassette is changed.

  • Patent number: 11010115
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus capable of, even both of reservation printing and pre-printing paper sheet confirmation are set for one print job, preventing a printing process from substantially being halted due to a confliction between these two settings. The image processing apparatus is capable of generating a print job, a time request and a print medium confirmation request. The image processing apparatus performs: a first process, which exclusively generates one of the time request and the print medium confirmation request, generates the print job including the generated one request, and performs a process corresponding to the generated one request prior to printing based on the print job; or a second process, which generates the time request and the print medium confirmation request, generates both of the two request, and exclusively performs one of the two requests prior to printing based on the print job.

  • Publication number: 20200242806
    Abstract: A stereo camera calibration method includes: obtaining a stereo image generated by imaging a chart using a stereo camera, the chart at least including two markers arranged at a known interval; measuring the known interval, using the stereo image and a calibration parameter for the stereo camera; and correcting a parameter pertaining to an optical axis position so as to reduce a difference between the known interval and a result of the measurement. The correcting includes performing a process corresponding to moving the optical axis position in perpendicular and lateral directions on an imaging surface of the stereo camera. The correcting includes calculating a perpendicular correction amount of the optical axis position, and then calculating a lateral correction amount of the optical axis position.

  • Patent number: 10573015
    Abstract: In a measuring device, a second objective optical system is arranged to have a parallax with respect to a first objective optical system. An imaging unit captures a first subject image formed through the first objective optical system at a first imaging timing and captures a second subject image formed through the second objective optical system at a second imaging timing different from the first imaging timing. A virtual image generating unit generates a virtual image based on the first subject image acquired in a case in which the imaging unit is assumed to capture the first subject image at the second imaging timing. A measurement processing unit measures a shape of a subject on the basis of a second image based on the second subject image and the virtual image.

  • Publication number: 20190286391
    Abstract: An information processing terminal accepts a print job inputted into the image forming apparatus via the user operation and obtains capability information of the image forming apparatus. The information processing terminal obtains the total number of print sheets for when the accepted print job will be processed and the maximum number of print sheets that the image forming apparatus can process without requiring user action, which is included in the obtained capability information. Furthermore, the information processing terminal, in the case where the total number of print sheets exceeds the maximum number of print sheets, outputs a warning message including that user action will be necessary.
