  • Publication number: 20200250839
    Abstract: In tracking of a moving body using image data in detecting a target moving body having few externally outstanding features, such as coloring and a shape, from an image in an image frame, if an image of the target moving body overlaps a background image largely and their colorings are the same or similar to one another, it is difficult to detect the target moving body. A template image of the target moving body is superimposed on a background image of a region (periphery) of a candidate position of the target to generate a composite image and the moving body is detected based on a degree of match calculated through comparison of the composite image with an image of the region (periphery) of the candidate position of the target.

  • Publication number: 20200223126
    Abstract: An imprint apparatus that forms a pattern of an imprint material on a substrate by using a mold includes a mold holder that holds the mold and an optical system that irradiates the imprint material on the substrate with irradiation light for increasing a viscosity of the imprint material. The irradiation light has a light intensity distribution such that a light intensity increases from a center of a pattern portion of the mold toward a side surface of the pattern portion when the mold is held by the mold holder. The imprint material that moves from the center of the pattern portion of the mold toward the side surface of the pattern portion in a region including the side surface of the pattern portion of the mold is irradiated with the irradiation light while the mold and the imprint material on the substrate are in contact with each other.
