  • Publication number: 20200298601
    Abstract: Previously, a customer may not have known which information was acquired and may have felt anxiety. In addition, only internal data of the apparatus was previously acquired. However, in order to determine a trouble in the inkjet printer with high precision, visual information such as a state of a printer mechanism or a conveyance line and a print result is also necessary to determine the apparatus state. Therefore, it is necessary to establish a maintenance system capable of acquiring such information.

  • Patent number: 6931995
    Abstract: An automation system for train maintenance that performs operations related to train maintenance without human intervention is provided. The automation system for train maintenance comprises a refuse reservoir (10), a sewage tank (20), a water tank (30), and expanders (41, 42, 51, 61). In this automation system, when a railway vehicle is parked, the expanders (41, 42, 51, 61) are expanded to lift connectors (45, 54, 64) toward the railway vehicle for connection to the refuse reservoir (10), sewage tank (20), and water tank (30). In this automation system, discharge of refuse, removal of sewage, and feeding of water are automatically performed. Upon completion of these operations, the expanders (41, 42, 51, 61) are contracted so that the connectors (44, 45, 54, 55, 64, 65) are stored in waiting locations (48, 58). Therefore, use of this automation system for train maintenance allows automatic train maintenance without human intervention.

  • Publication number: 20040201519
    Abstract: A positioning system offers positioning information on the basis of a signal transmitted from a quasi-zenith satellite. Multiple reference stations disposed on the ground receive signals from a plurality of positioning satellites. A communication station corrects the signals the reference stations have received, and transmits them to the quasi-zenith satellite. A positioning information offering apparatus transmits the signal received from the quasi-zenith satellite and a positional information to a positioning apparatus.

  • Patent number: 5189707
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for grasping surface mounted devices such as an IC or the like by the hand of the robot and automatically and accurately loading them onto the contact pattern of a printed circuit board by means of an image processor are disclosed. According to this method, a measurement line is provided onto each image pattern of the pin array of the surface mounted device and the array of the contact pattern of the board, so that it may intersect at right angles with the direction of the pattern, and each position of the pin array and the array of the contact pattern is sought from the variation of the brightness on that line. In accordance with the result thus obtained, displacement of the position and that of the rotation over the entire surfaced part and the contact pattern are sought and the operation of the robot is controlled in accordance with that information.
