  • Publication number: 20210232845
    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: 20210141107
    Abstract: Provided is a technique that can more reliably suppress erroneous determination of noise as an earthquake, in a seismic sensor. The seismic sensor operates in a power saving mode and a measurement mode with higher power consumption than that of the power saving mode. The seismic sensor includes: a measurement unit configured to measure acceleration; an earthquake determination unit configured to determine whether or not an earthquake has occurred based on the acceleration measured in a predetermined determination period after shifting to the measurement mode when shifting from the power saving mode to the measurement mode in a case where acceleration measured by the measurement unit exceeds a predetermined threshold; and an index calculator configured to calculate an index value indicating a scale of an earthquake in an earthquake processing period after the predetermined determination period, when the earthquake determination unit determines that an earthquake has occurred.

  • Patent number: 10717308
    Abstract: A tray locking mechanism includes a tray on which a sheet is disposed, a moving head that processes the sheet that is disposed on the tray as the moving head moves along the sheet, a tray locker that locks the movement of the tray, and a housing that houses the tray and includes a retainer. The tray locker includes a retaining claw that locks the movement of the tray by locking to the retainer. While the moving head is positioned at a position away from a stand-by position, the retaining claw is locked to the retainer as a result of the moving head separating from the tray locker, and while the moving head is positioned at the stand-by position, the retaining claw is disengaged from the retainer as a result of the moving head pushing the tray locker.

  • Patent number: 10224672
    Abstract: A lever (22) is formed with first driving portions (27) to move sliders (35) from a connection end position to an unlocking position in the process of rotating the lever (22) from a connection position to a switch position. Second driving portions (28) push the sliders (35) parallel to one another from the unlocking position to a connection start position in the process of rotating the lever (22) from the switch position to an initial position and move away from the sliders (35) as the lever (22) rotates from the initial position to the switch position with the sliders (35) located at the connection start position. Locking portions (33) restrict rotation of the lever (22) toward the connection position by being locked to the sliders (35) with the sliders (35) located at the connection start position and the lever (22) located at the switch position.

  • Publication number: 20190048836
    Abstract: A conduit engaging mechanism has a first member and a second member. The first member and the second member define and form fuel passages extending over them. A seal member is disposed between the first member and the second member. The first member and the second member are firmly engaged in a radial direction by fittingly coupling an engaging section and a fitting section. The first member and the second member are engaged by an engaging mechanism in an axial direction. The fuel passages are communicated as a series of passages by engaging the first passage forming section and the second passage forming section. The first passage forming section has a flexible pipe. The flexible pipe suppresses extension and contraction of the seal member by deflection itself. Consequently, deterioration of the seal member is suppressed.
