  • Publication number: 20190283769
    Abstract: A drive mode switch control device acquires operation information. The drive mode switch control device switches a drive state among at least an autonomous drive state, a manual drive state, and a coordination drive state. The operation detection unit detects a first operation and a second operation based on the operation information when the drive state is not in the manual drive state. The second operation is the drive operation different from the first operation and input after the input of the first operation. The drive mode switch control device switches the drive state from the autonomous drive state to the coordination drive state based on a detection determination of the first operation. The drive mode switch control device switches the drive state from the coordination drive state to the manual drive state based on a detection determination of the first operation.

  • Patent number: 8651955
    Abstract: A game device includes a packet processing section that processes a packet that is transferred between the game device and another game device via a network, a game calculation section that performs a game calculation process based on data transferred using a packet, and an image generation section that generates an image based on a result of the game calculation process. The game calculation section performs a game sequence process as the game calculation process in each game sequence interval. A packet that is transferred between the game device and the other game device includes a packet ID that specifies the type of data transferred using the packet, and an interval ID that specifies the game sequence interval that utilizes data transferred using the packet. The packet processing section compares the interval ID included in a received packet with the interval ID of a current game sequence interval.

  • Patent number: 7555141
    Abstract: A video phone includes an image sensing unit, face detection unit, image sensing adjustment unit, and communication control unit. The image sensing unit senses the face of a user serving as an object and generates image information. The image sensing unit has enlargement and reduction functions for the object in the image sensing range. The face detection unit detects the user's face from the image information generated by the image sensing unit. The image sensing adjustment unit sets, in the image information generated by the image sensing unit, a core area which has redundancy and contains a face area serving as an area corresponding to the face detected by the face detection unit. The image sensing adjustment unit controls the image sensing unit, and generates image information by performing at least one of enlargement and reduction processes on the core area under a predetermined condition.

  • Patent number: 7386018
    Abstract: A mode-locked laser serves as a light source for stabilizing the frequency of each optical carrier and generates high-quality optical multi-carrier. The mode-locked laser is equipped with a master laser for generating master laser light; a mode-locked laser section including in an optical resonator at least a modulating section, am amplifying section, and a bandwidth limiting section for reducing mode partition noise; and a signal generating section for generating a periodic signal that serves for mode locking of the mode-locked laser section and is to be applied to the modulating section. The master laser light is input to the optical resonator of the mode-locked laser section to cause injection locking. An optical multi-carrier source is constructed by combining this mode-locked laser with a waveguided optical nonlinear medium.
