  • Patent number: 10573009
    Abstract: Provided is an in vivo movement tracking apparatus configured to track a portion of interest that moves in vivo, in which accuracy and robustness of tracking are improved. The apparatus is configured to determine an estimated position of ah organ in a biological image based on the past movement of the organ and search for contour points corresponding to a plurality of control points, respectively, representing a contour shape of the organ in a region corresponding to the estimated position, to thereby determine an estimated contour of the organ based on the contour points. The in vivo movement tracking apparatus is configured to determine a position of a portion of interest, which moves in association with the organ, based on the estimated contour with reference to previously acquired sample data regarding a positional relationship between a contour of the organ and the portion of interest.

  • Patent number: 10040193
    Abstract: A motor control system includes first processing circuitry that controls a motor. An upper-level communication path connects an upper-level communication port of the first processing circuitry to second processing circuitry that sends an instruction to the first processing circuitry via the upper-level communication path. A lower-level communication path connects a lower-level communication port of the first processing circuitry to a plurality of devices connected in series to each other. The devices include rotational angle detection circuitry and output circuitry. The rotational angle detection circuitry detects a rotation angle of the motor. The output circuitry outputs associated information that is associated with the motor and is different from the rotational angle or that is associated with an industrial device associated with the motor.

  • Patent number: 9039007
    Abstract: Sheets conveyed to a loading tray are stacked on the loading tray while they are sequentially aligned with an aligning unit, then, when pressing processing is performed with respect to a bundle of the stacked sheets, a presser is moved downward in a state where ends of the sheet bundle are abutting-held with the aligning unit. The sheet bundle is aligned by performing the pressing with a presser member gradually from a first reference fence side, to gradually discharge air staying in the sheet bundle from a first elastic body fence side.

  • Patent number: 8223804
    Abstract: A synchronized communication system is provided in which even when communication devices are connected in series to a transmission path, devices connected to the communication devices are synchronized so that a communication cycle can be reduced. A second communication device includes a relay path and a return path which do not pass through a storage device, and a path selection switch therefor. A first communication device instructs switching of the return path from the transmission path, measures a transmission path delay time, notifies the second communication device of it, and sends a reference time of the first communication device for each communication cycle. The second communication device corrects its reference time using the transmission path delay time and the reference time. When a new second communication device is found during synchronized communication, the first communication device also performs transmission path delay measurement using the remaining time in the communication cycle.

  • Publication number: 20120029032
    Abstract: Disclosed is a matrix-type sustained release preparation containing a basic drug unstable against an acid as an active pharmaceutical ingredient, wherein the decomposition of the basic drug unstable against the acid can be prevented and therefore the pH-dependent release can be reduced. A hardly water-soluble basic normal salt is added to a matrix-type sustained release preparation containing a basic drug that is unstable against an acid.

  • Patent number: 8046512
    Abstract: A master includes a unit configured to register, for each slave, an expected communication time needed to exchange control data; a unit configured to register a slave in which a communication error is detected during exchange of the control data in a communication period; and a unit configured to re-execute exchange of the control data with the registered slave in the same communication period as that in which the communication error is detected. The unit configured to re-execute exchange of control data calculates a remaining resending time that can be used to re-execute exchange of the control data and, when the remaining resending time is longer than the expected communication time of the registered slave, resends the control data.
