  • Patent number: 11148562
    Abstract: A vehicle seat structure includes a vehicle seat including a seat cushion configured to support an occupant, an upper rail that is fixed to the vehicle seat and that moves in a seat front-rear direction together with the vehicle seat, and a lower rail that is fixed to a floor of a vehicle body and that engages with the upper rail and supports the upper rail so as to allow movement of the upper rail. The vehicle seat structure includes a lock mechanism configured to restrict movement of the upper rail with respect to the lower rail. The lock mechanism is configured such that at least part of the lock mechanism deforms when a force toward the seat front side arising due to inertia acts on the vehicle seat in a state in which the upper rail is engaged with a seat rear side portion of the lower rail.

    Abstract: An image processing apparatus includes a printing unit, a network interface, a memory, and a processor that, in response to a request for performing a printer function received from an external device via the network interface, controls the printing unit to perform the function. The memory stores a plurality of images each corresponding to an optional component attachable to the image processing apparatus. Upon receipt of a request for apparatus information from the external device via the network interface, the processor retrieves one or more of the images representing the components currently attached to the image processing apparatus, combines the retrieved images to form a representative image of the image processing apparatus, and controls the network interface to transmit the representative image to the external device.

  • Publication number: 20210288871
    Abstract: Visibility of relevance of detailed configurations is improved while deterioration of the visibility of a general configuration between nodes is suppressed. A node coordinate calculation process calculates, upon calculation of deployment coordinates of each node, a degree of importance of an infrastructure resource and a degree of importance of an application, and weights the distance between the application node and the infrastructure node with the reciprocal of the degree of importance of the infrastructure node. Then, the node coordinate calculation process determines deployment of the application node such that the application node is deployed in the proximity of a comparatively important infrastructure node, and determines deployment of the application node on the basis of the degrees of importance of the applications such that a comparatively important application is deployed closely to the infrastructure node.

  • Publication number: 20210247708
    Abstract: According to one embodiment, an image forming apparatus includes a reading unit, a heating unit, and an updating unit. The reading unit reads area designation information for designating an area to be decolored in areas of a sheet on which an image that can be decolored by heating is formed and history information for indicating the number of times of performing decoloration in the past for each area of the sheet from a wireless tag attached to the sheet. The heating unit heats the area based on the area designation information read by the reading unit. The updating unit updates the history information stored in the wireless tag which corresponds to the area heated by the heating unit.
