  • Patent number: 10726569
    Abstract: Whether to correct unevenness of brightness of a first image of an object onto which pattern light for three-dimensional shape measurement is projected is determined based on the first image or a second image of the object onto which the pattern light is not projected. If correction is performed, the three-dimensional shape of the object is measured using a corrected image obtained by correcting the unevenness of the brightness of the first image based on the second image; otherwise, the three-dimensional shape of the object is measured using the first image.

  • Patent number: 10657366
    Abstract: In order to reduce limitations on an arrangement of a posture visualization system as a whole, a posture recognition unit recognizes, based on image data of a real space captured by an image capture unit from a predetermined viewpoint, a posture of an object in the image data of the real space. A posture visualization viewpoint setting unit sets a viewpoint different from the predetermined viewpoint. A posture visualization unit visualizes a mirror image of the posture of the object viewed from the viewpoint set by the posture visualization viewpoint setting unit based on the posture recognized by the posture recognition unit. A space display unit displays the mirror image of the posture of the object generated by the posture visualization unit and a mirror image of the real space at once.
