  • Publication number: 20190236792
    Abstract: A determination device generates, based on a first captured image captured by a first image capturing device mounted on a moving object, a shape of a subject (one of subjects) included in the first captured image. The determination device estimates the location of the shape of the subject after specific time based on the location of the shape of the subject and a moving speed. The determination device extracts the shape of the subject from a second captured image captured by a second image capturing device mounted on the moving object; compares the location of the shape of the subject extracted from the second captured image with the location of the shape of the subject estimated from the first captured image; and performs determination related to a moving state of the subject.

  • Publication number: 20130304469
    Abstract: Among multiple documents presented to a user, a high interest and a low interest document are specified, a word group in the high interest document is compared with a word group in the low interest document, and a string of word groups associated weight values is generated as a user feature vector. A word group included in each of multiple data items targeted for assigning priorities is extracted, and data feature vectors are generated specific to each data item, based on the word groups extracted. A degree of similarity between each data feature vectors of multiple data items and user feature vector is obtained, and according to the degree of similarity, priorities are assigned to the multiple data items to be presented to the user. Therefore, it is possible to extract user's feature information on which the user's interests and tastes are reflected more effectively.

  • Patent number: 8049902
    Abstract: A mobile vehicle provided with moving means and a moving control device automatically travels while detecting an advance distance and a turning angle by means of one optical displacement sensor. The mobile vehicle comprises a moving unit (2) for moving a body (1), one optical displacement sensor (7) as a displacement sensor provided on the body (1), and a moving control device for controlling the moving unit (2) based on a moving distance detected by the optical displacement sensor (7). The moving control device determines the distance of rectilinear movement and a turning angle of the body (1) from an amount detected by the optical displacement sensor (7). The optical displacement sensor (7) picks up patterns or the like on a traveling floor surface at specified time intervals and detects a moving distance by comparing images before and after the specified time.

  • Patent number: 7548863
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, system, and signal-bearing medium that converts input data, such as speech or phonetic characters, to text by finding documents that are similar to the input data and using the similar documents to create a customized dictionary including a weighted list of words found in the similar documents. The words that are weighted higher may have a higher probability of being used in the input data, so words in the converted text are chosen based on the weighted list. A vector space model may be used to search for the similar documents.
