  • Patent number: 10328866
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus for processing an image according to one embodiment includes a generating unit, a display control unit, and a change receiving unit. The display control unit generates a synthetic image providing a view of a vehicle from a virtual viewpoint, based on a plurality of onboard camera images. The display control unit displays the generated synthetic image on a display unit. The change receiving unit receives a change in the relative positional relation between an image region that is based on one of the camera images and image regions that are based on the other camera images in the synthetic image. The generating unit generates a synthetic image, based on a changed positional relation every time a change in the positional relation is received.

  • Patent number: 9326180
    Abstract: Even if a failure has occurred in core network equipment in a state in which bearers are established between a large number of UEs and a packet data network, congestion in the network is avoided. A mobile communication method according to the present invention includes steps of transmitting, by an MME, to transmit a “PDN Disconnection Request/Detach Request” including barring time to a UE when the MME disconnects a bearer between the UE and the packet data network due to a predetermined reason such as a failure in a S-GW/P-GW or the MME in a state in which the bearer is established, and barring, by the UE, a mobile originating call directed to the packet data network for the barring time.

  • Publication number: 20120314586
    Abstract: In a SGSN, upon receiving data addressed to a mobile station by a receiving unit when disconnection of a radio connection with the mobile station is detected by a disconnection detection unit, a relay/non-relay determination unit determines whether or not to relay the data based on the type of communication determined by a communication type determination unit and performs relay of the data according to the determination. This allows the relay of data to be stopped for the type of communication such as conversational communication in SIP, thus preventing the transmission of unnecessary data to the mobile station and thereby reducing the consumption of a resource for radio communication.
