  • Publication number: 20190315592
    Abstract: An elevator system that allows a plurality of autonomous mobile bodies to be rearranged in an alighting order in a car. The elevator system includes processing circuitry to move and stop an elevator car based on information indicating destination floors transmitted from autonomous mobile bodies, to select an autonomous mobile body in the car and an autonomous mobile body that will board the car as targets to be rearranged. The processing circuitry is further to determine an alighting order of the autonomous mobile bodies to be rearranged based on the destination floor of each of the autonomous mobile bodies to be rearranged, and to transmit information indicating the alighting order to each of the autonomous mobile bodies to be rearranged so that the autonomous mobile bodies are arranged one by one in the alighting order.

  • Publication number: 20090213009
    Abstract: A position detection server corrects for the attenuation of the intensity of an electric wave from each AP unit which is caused by walls by using map information to determine a distance between each AP unit and a terminal, acquires, as an existence region, a region of the position of the terminal in which variations are permitted to occur in the electric wave intensity due to the characteristics of the electric wave from the distance, restricts this existence region to an actionable region according to the state of the terminal, excludes any part which is blocked by walls when viewed from the immediately preceding position of the terminal from the actionable region by using the map information to determine a movable region, and narrows this movable region down to a region extending in the direction in which the terminal is moving to determine the position of the terminal.

  • Publication number: 20040190607
    Abstract: By inserting a video relay apparatus 100 between a server 200 and a terminal 400 in a conventional general video distribution system, it is possible to display the video with a high quality by the video distribution system using the communication unit having a limited transmission capacity even if the video cannot be previously stored in the video relay apparatus. The video relay apparatus 100 is provided with a receiving unit 10 for receiving the video, a storing unit 20 for temporarily storing the received video, an area defining unit 60 for dividing the video so as to define the areas, an area classifying unit 70 for classifying the areas defined by the area defining unit 60, a video reconstructing unit 30 for skipping the video or adjusting the quality of the defined area of video by the area defining unit 60 and reconstructing the video based on the classified result by the area classifying unit 70, and a sending unit 40 for sending the reconstructed video by the video reconstructing unit 30.

  • Publication number: 20020161798
    Abstract: A data input processing section (1) input-processes information which is continuous over time, a data extracting section (4) defines, as a plurality of data units, portion information which is continuous over time which forms the information which is continuous over time, a feature amount extracting section (5) extracts a predetermined feature amount for each data unit, and a sorting section (6) orders respective data units on the basis of feature amounts of the respective data units. An index image generating section (7) generates, for each data unit, a visualized index image on the basis of the feature amount, and arranges-outputs the index information on the basis of the ordering of the sorting section (6), a playback processing section (8) plays back at least the information which is continuous over time and the data units, and a playback instructing section (11) instructs the playback processing section (8) to carry out playback processing of data units corresponding to index images.

  • Publication number: 20020162110
    Abstract: A buffer device (1) receives unit information from a server (2), stores delivery destination information that relates to the destination of a delivery for each delivery destination, and also stores additional information that is to be added to the unit information. Based on the delivery destination information as well as unit attribute information that relates to time spans and attributes of the received unit information, the buffer device (1) then creates transmission information that instructs that the stored additional information is to be added to the received unit information and then transmitted. Based on the created transmission information, the buffer device (1) then adds the stored additional information to the received unit information and transmits the unit information to which the additional information has been added to the terminal (4).

  • Patent number: 5970504
    Abstract: A moving image anchor setting apparatus including a data operation portion for executing data operation relating to setting of anchors and links; a data storage portion for storing the data; a display portion for controlling display; and a user operation portion for inputting editing commands. When anchors are set for some frames with an anchor setting portion, an anchor information interpolation portion estimates anchor information of the other frames. As a result, the number of man-hours required for anchor setting is greatly reduced.

  • Patent number: 5894333
    Abstract: A video. source, such as a VCR, plays back a motion image which is input by an image input section. Partition of scenes and creation of images representing scenes are performed by a catalog creation section. Additionally, at this time, an image representing the movement of an object appearing in the scenes is created. A representative image and a motion description image are initially stored in a catalog storage section and then displayed in catalog form by a display section under control of a display control section. Since not only the representative image of scenes but also the movement of the object in those scenes are displayed, the contents of the scenes are easily grasped.
