  • Patent number: 10687701
    Abstract: A tomographic-image pickup unit is controlled so as to capture a tomographic image in response to a signal input from a signal input unit. Then, a display unit is controlled so as to display the captured tomographic image. An eyeground-image pickup unit is controlled so as to capture a two-dimensional image in response to a signal input from the signal input unit while the tomographic image is displayed on the display unit. Therewith, the user can more easily perform imaging, and the time load on the subject is reduced.

  • Patent number: 10643474
    Abstract: A vehicle control device includes: a recognizer (110, 120) that recognizes an object present around a host vehicle; and an apparatus operation controller (130) that determines whether the object is recognized in a predetermined target area by the recognizer and causes an onboard apparatus to perform a predetermined operation when it is determined that an object has been recognized by the recognizer. The predetermined target area is set around the host vehicle, and the apparatus operation controller determines whether the host vehicle enters or has entered a predetermined branching point and lowers a level of the predetermined operation performed by the onboard apparatus when it is determined that the host vehicle enters or has entered the predetermined branching point.

  • Publication number: 20200012877
    Abstract: There is provided with an information processing apparatus. From an image capturing apparatus which can move, a captured image of an object is obtained. The position of the image capturing apparatus is derived using the captured image and a three-dimensional map. The three-dimensional map is corrected using information indicating a reliability of: information indicating the three-dimensional position of the feature included in a predefined area in the three-dimensional map held by the holding unit; and information indicating a three-dimensional position of another feature of the object, the information obtained based on the captured image from an expanded area of the predefined area in the three-dimensional map held by the holding unit.

  • Publication number: 20190389729
    Abstract: A graphite film has a higher degree of thermal diffusion property in one in-plane direction and a method produces the graphite film. The graphite film includes a first axial direction, which is a direction having the highest thermal diffusivity in a film surface, and a second axial direction orthogonal to the first axial direction in the film surface. A value obtained by dividing the thermal diffusivity in the first axial direction by a thermal diffusivity in the second axial direction is not less than 1.020 and not more than 1.300.

  • Patent number: 10464420
    Abstract: An emergency vehicle control device includes an emergency vehicle stop switch that detects or estimates an emergency situation; an accelerator operation detector that detects whether or not an accelerator is being operated; and a cruise controller that executes vehicle speed maintaining control or inter-vehicle distance maintaining control for a preceding vehicle. In the case where an emergency situation is detected or estimated by the emergency vehicle stop switch while a vehicle is running, execution of control by the cruise controller is prohibited, and when an accelerator non-operation state lasting for an accelerator non-operation time threshold value or longer since the prohibition of the control is detected by the accelerator operation detector, the vehicle is automatically stopped.

  • Patent number: 10286912
    Abstract: An emergency vehicle control device includes an emergency vehicle stop switch (emergency situation detector) that detects or estimates an emergency situation; and an accelerator operation detector that detects whether or not an accelerator is being operated. When an emergency situation is detected or estimated by the emergency situation detector and an accelerator non-operation state lasting for an accelerator non-operation time threshold value or longer is detected by the accelerator operation detector while the vehicle is running, the vehicle is automatically stopped regardless of whether or not a steering operation is performed.

  • Patent number: 10214215
    Abstract: An emergency vehicle control device, when an emergency vehicle stop switch is operated for an operation time threshold value or longer in a state where automatic vehicle stop control is not executed, determines that the automatic vehicle stop control is intended to be executed. Later, when the interval between the previous operation and the current operation of the emergency vehicle stop switch is within an operation interval threshold value, the determination that the automatic vehicle stop control is intended to be executed is sustained, whereas when the interval exceeds the operation interval threshold value and the emergency vehicle stop switch is operated for the operation time threshold value or longer, it is determined that the execution of the automatic vehicle stop control is intended to be cancelled.

  • Publication number: 20180086338
    Abstract: When a host vehicle makes a lane change from a first lane into a second lane, an approach suppression control unit of a travel assist device monitors whether or not another vehicle, which is traveling in a third lane existing on an opposite side from the first lane with the second lane interposed therebetween, is making a lane change into the second lane. In the case it is determined that the other vehicle is making a lane change from the third lane into the second lane, the approach suppression control unit implements an approach suppression control for suppressing the host vehicle and the other vehicle from approaching each other.
