  • Patent number: 11410647
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a microphone configured to receive input of speech, an output interface, and a processor configured to recognize the speech inputted to the microphone. The processor judges whether the electronic device satisfies a predetermined condition. The processor causes the output interface to output information prompting a user for speech input when the processor judges that the electronic device satisfies the predetermined condition. This electronic device improves the convenience of speech recognition.

  • Patent number: 11402993
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a first sensor for detecting a gesture that does not come into contact with the electronic device, a second sensor for detecting a touch that comes into contact with the electronic device, and a controller. The controller increases the size of an icon, displayed on a display, when a gesture is detected by the first sensor. The controller increases the size of the icon in accordance with the distance to the position where the gesture detected by the first sensor is performed. The controller decreases the size of the icon when a touch is detected by the second sensor, regardless of the distance to the position where the gesture detected by the first sensor is performed.

  • Publication number: 20220194719
    Abstract: A judgment process of judging whether or not the movable linear module is located in the facing range is performed before the slider transfer operation of moving the slider from the fixed linear module to the movable linear module located in the facing range is performed. As a result, unless the movable linear module is judged to be located in the facing range, the slider transfer operation is performed after a preparation operation of moving the movable linear module into the facing range is performed. Therefore, the slider can be properly moved from the fixed linear module to the movable linear module.

  • Publication number: 20220182002
    Abstract: The identifier for identifying the slider is given to this slider. In contrast, the control signal transmitted to the plurality of linear drivers indicates the position command value and the speed command value for the slider and the identifier of this slider in association with each other. The linear driver reads the identifier for identifying the slider from this slider overlapping the assigned region thereof and supplies the current corresponding to the position command value and the speed command value associated with this identifier by the control signal to the linear motor stators. In this way, it is possible to cause the linear driver corresponding to the assigned region, in which the slider is present, to precisely drive the slider.

  • Publication number: 20220177240
    Abstract: A transfer operation of moving the slider between one fixed linear module and a movable linear module while locating the movable linear module in the facing range facing the one fixed linear module is performed. At this time, it is judged whether or not the coordinate axis of the one fixed linear module and the coordinate axis of the movable linear module are continuous If it is judged before the transfer operation that the coordinate axes are not continuous, the transfer operation is performed after the coordinate axes are made continuous in the direction by changing the coordinate axis. Thus, it is possible to suppress the occurrence of a situation where the transfer operation of moving the slider between the fixed linear module and the movable linear module cannot be performed due to the discontinuity of the coordinate axes respectively set for the fixed and movable linear modules.

  • Publication number: 20220144562
    Abstract: Whether to permit or prohibit drive of at least one object, out of a slider and a movable linear module, is determined based on position related information on position of the slider or the movable linear module before the drive of the object is started. In this way, in a linear conveyor system for transferring the slider between a plurality of fixed linear modules using the movable linear modules, the occurrence of interference between the linear modules and the slider can be suppressed.
