  • Patent number: 9738089
    Abstract: A liquid ejection apparatus corrects image data by: setting a to-be-corrected dot element; acquiring a correction amount based on an offset between a formation position at which a dot corresponding to the to-be-corrected dot element is to be formed on a recording medium while the recording medium is conveyed the reference conveyance amount per unit time and a formation position at which a dot corresponding to the to-be-corrected dot element is to be formed while the recording medium is conveyed a conveyance amount different from the reference conveyance amount per unit time; and executing correction on the to-be-corrected dot element. The correction is executed by setting a density value for the to-be-corrected dot element as that for corresponding one dot element whose data array order is shifted from a data array order of the to-be-corrected dot element by the number of dot elements corresponding to the correction amount.

  • Patent number: 9538947
    Abstract: Method, system and device for assisting diagnosis of autism which enable assistance of early detection and early definite diagnosis of autism (especially in infants) based on objective evaluation, using a conventionally suggested “eye-gaze detection technique”. The method for assisting diagnosis of autism of a subject uses an eye-gaze detecting unit, the unit having at least an imaging camera portion. The method includes displaying, at the position in front of the subject along the direction of the eye gaze of the subject, an illusionary image contained in a plane of an illusion-causing image on a displaying device. The eye-gaze position information of the subject looking at the plane is detected, and the eye-gaze position information of the subject is input into an eye-gaze position information storage portion The eye-gaze positions of the subject can be evaluated using a algorithm for assisting diagnosis of autism.

  • Patent number: 9520245
    Abstract: The present invention provides a means in which contact between contacts in a “double-break (or double-make) contact structure” occurs in two places in the same state as much as possible. A contact structure includes two fixed members (110,112) each of which has a fixed contact (116,118) and a movable member (102) containing a movable contact (106) which contacts or separates from the fixed contact of each of the fixed members. The movable member is in the form of a strip as a whole, its one end is supported so as to allow the above mentioned contact and separation of the movable member, and the other end of the movable member has the movable contact, and the movable member has a narrowed section between its two ends.

  • Patent number: 9162478
    Abstract: An image recording apparatus, including: a first head for ejecting first liquid; a second head for ejecting second liquid; a second-liquid test-pattern recording command section configured to command recording of a test pattern of the second liquid on the recording medium; and an output controller configured to output recording data to the first head and/or the second head. When the second-liquid test-pattern recording command section does not command the recording of the test pattern of the second liquid, the output controller outputs recording data representative of an image to be recorded, to the first head and the second head. When the second-liquid test-pattern recording command section commands the recording of the test pattern of the second liquid, the output controller outputs the recording data representative of the test pattern of the second liquid, not to the first head but to the second head.
