  • Publication number: 20050206742
    Abstract: A video analysis system is disclosed that detects a sensing event by analyzing video captured in each of multiple image sensors connected to a network and notifies a center apparatus of detection information via the network to manage the detection information. The center apparatus determines at least one of the image sensors where the frequency of sensing event occurrence is statistically low by recording the frequency of the notification from each image sensor. The center apparatus reports the determined one of the image sensors to the image sensors as advertisement data. Each image sensor, when being unable to detect the sensing event by real-time processing that is a high-speed video analysis, selects a specific one of the image sensors based on the received advertisement data, and requests the specific one of the image sensors to perform high-accuracy processing that is a low-speed, high-accuracy video analysis.

  • Patent number: 6751605
    Abstract: A character recognition apparatus for inferring the entire character string solely from a user-input handwritten keyword and displaying the inferred result as a candidate character string. The apparatus of the invention comprises: a word string includes a word hierarchy and for recognizing each of the words within the hierarchy; a character transition probability table a4 storing probabilities of transitions from any one character to another, and those pieces of the word identification information which correspond to combinations of characters resulting from the transitions; and an optimization unit for using the character transition probability table in optimizing candidate character strings obtained by a recognition unit. The word dictionary is searched for a word defined by the word identification information which corresponds to the optimized candidate character string, whereby the searched word is retrieved which applies to the hierarchy information and which has yet to be input.

  • Patent number: 6476796
    Abstract: A display device has a touch pad and a display lamintated together to form a screen, That screen is connected to a controller which processes signals generated by physical contact with the touch pad and activates the display to display e.g. characters input by a stylus to the touch pad. The display device is connected to an external device (e.g. a computer) and video signals from the external device are received via a video input and may be displayed on the display. Also the controller can transmit to the external device via an output. Thus, the display can display simultaneously information from the external device and information input to the touch pad. If the controller is arranged to carry out character recognition, the display device may then act as a hand-writing input device, with the handwritten information being incorporated with information in the external device and displayed.

  • Patent number: 5903667
    Abstract: In an information processing apparatus having a handwriting input unit made of an integral structure of a handwriting coordinate input device and a plane display, the screen of the handwriting input unit is constituted by one or more areas, and there are provided a form defining unit for defining in advance a process operation for each area and a stroke interpretation executing unit for executing the process operation defined by the form defining unit when a handwritten stroke is inputted to the area. It becomes therefore possible to input data with a realistic sense of writing data on a paper with a pen without intercepting human thinking processes, while considerably improving man-machine interface.

  • Patent number: 5841901
    Abstract: A pattern recognition system having a plurality of dictionaries, wherein handwritten input information is compared with patterns contained in the plurality of dictionaries so as to deliver a similar one of the patterns as a recognized result; The system comprises a controller which selects one pattern as a final recognized result from among recognized results based on the plurality of dictionaries, so as to deliver the selected pattern as its output. The controller evaluates summations of values previously set for respective candidate levels in the recognized results, for individual candidate patterns which exist in the recognized results based on the plurality of dictionaries, and it selects the pattern of the final recognized result on the basis of the summations. Thus, the recognized result most suited to a user is automatically derived from among the recognized results based on the plurality of dictionaries.

  • Patent number: 5592565
    Abstract: A hand-written character recognition apparatus with a personal dictionary preparation function has a character recognition unit for comparing an input hand-written character data with a registered standard dictionary to recognize a most similar character pattern, and a display unit for selecting and displaying a display font corresponding to the recognized character pattern, so that a personal peculiar character or simplified character inputted can be recognized. When a personal dictionary is to be registered, the character to be registered is inputted by hand-writing, the character recognition unit compares the input hand-written character data with the standard dictionary to recognize a similar character pattern, and the recognized character code of the standard dictionary is selected as the character code to be registered.
