  • Patent number: 11408837
    Abstract: Provided is a fine structure determination method capable of easily determining tilt angles of columnar scattering bodies that are long in a thickness direction, and provided are an analysis apparatus and an analysis program thereof. There is provided an analysis method for a fine structure of a plate-shaped sample formed to have columnar scattering bodies that are long in a thickness direction and periodically arranged, comprising the steps of preparing scattering intensity data from the plate-shaped sample, that is generated via transmission of X-rays; and determining tilt angles of the scattering bodies in the plate-shaped sample with respect to a reference rotation position at which a surface of the plate-shaped sample is perpendicular to an incident direction of the X-rays, based on the prepared scattering intensity data.

  • Publication number: 20220230560
    Abstract: In a road guidance using a Braille block, it has not been possible to determine a walking direction of a user only by a single Braille block. To solve the above problem, in a road guidance system including a mobile information terminal and a Braille block, the mobile information terminal includes a photographing processing unit, a QR code analysis processing unit that analyzes a QR code, a voice output processing unit, and a control unit, a QR code is affixed to the Braille block, and the control unit analyzes the QR code affixed to the Braille block photographed by the photographing processing unit using the QR code analysis processing unit to obtain QR code information, generates road guidance information generated based on a walking direction of a user holding the mobile information terminal from the QR code information, and outputs the road guidance information from the voice output processing unit as a voice.

  • Publication number: 20210406520
    Abstract: A face recognition technology that enables high-speed determination of erroneous detection of face regions and high-precision face recognition by means of a first face recognition processing unit of relatively low accuracy for detecting a face region of a person on each captured image captured by a monitor camera, and a second face recognition processing unit for performing face recognition of a person more accurately with respect to the detected face region transmitted from the first face recognition processing unit. The second face recognition. processing unit determines that the first face recognition processing unit has erroneously detected when the second face recognition processing unit is not able to recognize a face region on the detected face region transmitted from the first face recognition processing unit, and the first face recognition processing unit calculates and self-learns a barycentric coordinate of the detected face region as a point mask position. Thereafter, the first face recognition.

  • Patent number: 11110435
    Abstract: An exhaust gas purification catalyst comprises a substrate; a catalyst layer formed on the substrate and containing at least palladium (Pd) and rhodium (Rh) as a metal functioning as an oxidation and/or reduction catalyst. The catalyst also comprises a carrier that supports the metal, and an OSC material having oxygen storage capacity. The catalyst layer has, when disposed in the exhaust pipe, a front section positioned upstream in an exhaust gas flow direction within the exhaust pipe, and a rear section positioned downstream of the front section in the exhaust gas flow direction. The front section contains palladium (Pd) but does not contain the OSC material, and a proportion, at which the front section is formed from an upstream leading end in the exhaust gas flow direction, is 10% to 40% with respect to 100% of a total length of the substrate.

    Abstract: Provided is an exhaust gas purification catalyst of OSC material-containing type that allows a favorable HC purification (oxidation) treatment to be performed even in a case where HC emissions are comparatively large, such as during engine startup. The exhaust gas purification catalyst of the present invention includes, as a catalyst layer (20), a front section (24) positioned upstream in an exhaust gas flow direction, and a rear section (26) positioned downstream of the front section in the exhaust gas flow direction. The front section contains Pd as a catalyst metal but does not contain an OSC material. The proportion, at which the front section is formed from the upstream leading end in the exhaust gas flow direction, is 10% to 40% with respect to 100% of a total length of the substrate (1) in the exhaust gas flow direction.
