    Abstract: An electromagnetic wave detection apparatus (10) includes an irradiator (11), a first detector (17), a memory (13), and a controller (14). The irradiator (11) irradiates electromagnetic waves. The first detector (17) includes detection elements. The detection elements detect, by irradiation position, reflected waves of the electromagnetic waves irradiated onto an object (ob). The memory (13) stores related information. The related information is information associating any two of the emission direction of the electromagnetic waves and elements defining two points on a path. The path refers to a path of the electromagnetic waves emitted from the irradiator (11) to the first detector (17) via the object (ob). The controller (14) updates the related information based on the emission direction of the electromagnetic waves and the position of the detection element, among the detection elements, that detects the reflected waves of the electromagnetic waves.

  • Publication number: 20200003893
    Abstract: An electromagnetic wave detection apparatus (10) includes a switch (16), a first detector (19), and a second detector (20). The switch (16) includes an action surface (as) with a plurality of pixels (px) disposed thereon. The switch (16) is configured to switch each pixel (px) between the first state and the second state. In the first state, the pixels (px) cause electromagnetic waves incident on the action surface (as) to travel in a first direction (dl). In the second state, the pixels (px) cause the electromagnetic waves incident on the action surface (as) to travel in a second direction (d2). The first detector (19) detects the electromagnetic waves that travel in the first direction (dl). The second detector (20) detects the electromagnetic waves that travel in the second direction (d2).

  • Publication number: 20180268228
    Abstract: An obstacle detection device includes a detector, a generator, and an estimator. The detector detects a person region where a shape of a person is present, from a captured image. The generator generates an optical flow based on a non-detection image from which the person region is not detected and a detection image from which the person region is detected before the time of the non-detection image in a case where the person region is not detected by the detector. The estimator estimates the person region in the non-detection image based on the optical flow generated by the generator.

  • Patent number: 8471680
    Abstract: The invention provides an automatically rotatable turntable for a display unit and includes: a mounting section mounted with the display unit; an electric rotating mechanism that rotates the mounting section; a reception section in the display unit which receives a wireless signal from a remote control unit; and a control section that controls the electric rotating mechanism based upon the received wireless signal. Upon receipt of the wireless signal, the control section detects a reception strength of the reception section while cyclically rotating the mounting section around a predetermined rotational position, to initially detect a rotational position at which the reception strength is maximum. Thereafter, as a main operation, the control section detects the reception strength while rotating the mounting section in a direction extending from the predetermined rotational position to the initially-detected rotational position, to detect a rotational position at which the reception strength is maximum.
