  • Publication number: 20210103307
    Abstract: A technique is provided that reduces dullness of a potential provided to a line such as gate line on an active-matrix substrate to enable driving the line at high speed and, at the same time, reduces the size of the picture frame region. On an active-matrix substrate (20a) are provided gate lines (13G) and source lines. On the active-matrix substrate (20a) are further provided: gate drivers (11) each including a plurality of switching elements, at least one of which is located in a pixel region, for supplying a scan signal to a gate line (13G); and lines (15L1) each for supplying a control signal to the associated gate driver (11). A control signal is supplied by a display control circuit (4) located outside the display region to the gate drivers (11) via the lines (15L1). In response to a control signal supplied, each gate driver (11) drives the gate line (13G) to which it is connected.

  • Patent number: 10944940
    Abstract: An intercom system for collective housing comprises a main entrance station with a camera, a residential entrance substation with a camera and a residential master station for each residence in the housing, a storage unit that stores videos (V1) of visitors shot by the camera of the main entrance station by associating the videos with residence IDs of the respective residences to visit, and a control unit. The control unit includes a check unit that checks the videos (V1) against a video (V2) shot by the camera of a residential entrance substation. If the check by the check unit indicates a match, the control unit compares the residence ID associated with the match stored in the storage unit with that of the residence in which a call button of the residential entrance substation has been operated. The operation of the call button is invalidated if the IDs are different.

  • Patent number: 10878772
    Abstract: Provided is a technique for preventing excessive determination that control in a display control apparatus is abnormal. A control test apparatus includes an acquisition unit and a controller. The controller determines, whenever necessary, on the basis of a second image that is output from the display control apparatus and first test data that is acquired in the acquisition unit, whether the control in the display control apparatus over the display apparatus is abnormal. The controller stops the determination until a predetermined time elapses from a first time point, the predetermined time being equal to or greater than a time from the first time point at which the first test data is input to the controller to a second time point at which the second image is input to the controller.

  • Publication number: 20200391471
    Abstract: A first sheet panel is folded along a first fold line, and thereby a first folded part is formed in the first sheet panel. Subsequently, the first folded part is folded back along a second fold line, and thereby a folded-back part is formed in the first sheet panel. A corner cut device cuts a second sheet panel and the folded-back part to form corner cut parts. At this time, the corner cut device prevents the first folded part and a base part of the first sheet panel from being cut.

  • Patent number: 10691472
    Abstract: The present invention has an object of providing a user interface execution apparatus and a user interface designing apparatus which can estimate the maximum size of a storage area for storing data to be prefetched when a user interface is designed and can present updated data to the user even when the prefetched data is updated after the prefetch. A user interface execution apparatus in the present invention includes a processor to execute a program; and a memory to store the program which, when executed by the processor, performs processes of: transitioning a state of the user interface execution apparatus; issuing a prefetch request for data; storing the data; generating the code from an interface definition and a state transition definition; and selecting, before transitioning the state, data to be prefetched based on a difference between a data obtaining interface to be used in a state before the transitioning and a data obtaining interface to be used in a state after the transitioning.
