  • Patent number: 6937321
    Abstract: A distance measuring technology capable of stably and accurately performing distance measurement of an object without any highly accurate focus control mechanism is provided. A distance measuring apparatus has a mask for restricting light so as to pass through two or more different light passing positions; a lens system for focusing the light passed through the mask; an image taking-in means for taking in images from the light focused by the lens system; and a distance calculating means for calculating a distance from an imaging element to an object using the taken-in images. The mask restricts the light so as to pass through only specified positions.

  • Patent number: 6738131
    Abstract: A distance measuring technology is capable of stably and accurately performing measurement of the distance to the distance to an object without use of a highly accurate focus control mechanism. The distance measurement is performed by an apparatus having a mask for restricting light so as to pass light through two or more different light passing positions; a lens system for focusing the light that has passed through the mask; an image taking-in means for taking in images from the light focused by the lens system; and a distance calculating unit for calculating a distance from an imaging element to an object using the taken-in images.

  • Publication number: 20020089699
    Abstract: An image reading apparatus capable of shortening the reading processing time in image reading of high definition. In an image reading apparatus having a plurality of reading definition values, the state of a reading subject is monitored with first definition. On the basis of a result of the monitoring, image reading is conducted with second definition higher in definition than the first definition. A function of giving a stillness determination on an image of low definition is added. Switchover of the image to the high definition and read processing start are automatically carried out.

  • Publication number: 20020090115
    Abstract: An image processing method of easily obtaining an image photographed from the front side even if an operation to read an image on the surface in a 3-dimensional shape such as folded slip or thick book is performed. An outline is obtained from original information read by a camera. Vertex information is detected from the outline information. A distance between the camera and the original is measured from the vertex information and known original shape information. A correction to develop the original information of the folded original into a plane on the basis of the distance information and the vertex information is made.
