  • Publication number: 20200277139
    Abstract: An arm robot is configured to take an object out of a storage shelf and a transfer robot is configured to transfer the storage shelf together with the object to an operation range of the arm robot. A robot teaching database stores raw teaching data for the arm robot based on a storage shelf coordinates model value that is a three-dimensional coordinates model value of the storage shelf and a robot hand coordinates model value that is a three-dimensional coordinates model value of the robot hand. A robot data generation unit is configured to correct the raw teaching data based on a detection result of a sensor detecting a relative position relationship between the storage shelf and the robot hand, and generate robot teaching data to be supplied to the arm robot.

  • Patent number: 10551387
    Abstract: A cancer cell detection method that makes it possible to perform imaging of cells in a living state and a dual detection method for cancer cells in which the aforementioned method is combined with a pre-existing dyeing method for cytodiagnosis. The method uses living body-derived cells and includes: incubating living cells included in a sample taken from a person together with a fluorescently-labeled L-glucose derivative and detecting the fluorescently-labeled L-glucose derivative that is taken up into the cells; and detecting fluorescence emitted by the L-glucose derivative that is present within the cells while the cells are attached to a thin glass or plastic plate. Also provided is a dual detection method for cancer cells in which the cancer cell detection method that uses living body-derived cells is combined with a dyeing method using cells that are fixed using an alcohol or the like.

  • Publication number: 20190113456
    Abstract: A multi-surface image acquisition system includes a multi-surface observation prism which includes one or more prisms and has a light path formed to collect surfaces in respective directions to be observed of a subject having a three-dimensional structure into one direction, in which a light path length is corrected by utilizing a difference in refractive index between glass and air to equalize a working distance of each surface. A light field camera expands a focal-depth adjustment range for two or more images focused on same plane through the prism. A three-dimensional subject can be observed in multiple directions at the same time, including an observation of cells.

  • Patent number: 7503232
    Abstract: A working vehicle is constructed such that rotation power of an engine is transmitted to drive wheels via a main speed-changing device and an auxiliary speed-changing device and that shift positions of the auxiliary speed-changing device are switchable by shift operation of a shift lever. At an operation position for working, shift positions can be switched, by the main speed-changing device and the auxiliary speed-changing device, between numerous positions from a low-speed range to a high-speed range. At an operation position for road traveling, shift positions of the main speed-changing device can be smoothly switched, in conjunction with operation of an accelerator pedal or a throttle lever, only within a high-speed range suitable for road traveling. The shift lever has a switch allowing the main speed-changing device to be shifted one by one to each shift stage in the speed increasing direction or in the speed reducing direction.

  • Publication number: 20070044582
    Abstract: A working vehicle is constructed such that rotation power of an engine (E) is transmitted to drive wheels (3F, 3R) via a main speed-changing device (1) and an auxiliary speed-changing device (2) and that shift positions of the auxiliary speed-changing device (2) are switchable by shift operation of a shift lever (5). Further, the shift lever (5) is switchable between an operation position (P1) for working and an operation position (P2) for road traveling. At the operation position (P1) for working, shift positions can be switched, by combination of the main speed-changing device (1) and the auxiliary speed-changing device (2), between a large number of positions from a low-speed range to a high-speed range. At the operation position (P2) for road traveling, shift positions of the main speed-changing device (1) can be smoothly switched, in conjunction with operation of an accelerator pedal (8) or a throttle lever (17), only within a high-speed range suitable for road traveling.
