  • Publication number: 20200188881
    Abstract: Provided is a method of producing a catalyst or adsorbent carrier and a catalyst or adsorbent carrier which can enhance a catalyst or adsorbent function, and prevent fall-off of catalyst particles or adsorbent particles. The surface of a metal base material made of aluminum or an aluminum alloy is subjected to an etching process using an etchant containing iron chloride and an oxide to convert the surface to an uneven and rough surface. The uneven and rough surface of the metal base material is subjected to an anodizing process to form a porous coating along the uneven and rough surface. A large number of catalyst or adsorbent particles are thus carried on the surface of the metal base material on which the porous coating is formed along the uneven and rough surface.

  • Patent number: 10516858
    Abstract: A plurality of fixed cameras installed in a driving area on a highway and a server device are connected via a network NW. The server device displays the captured images of the fixed cameras on the fixed camera monitor and requests camera position information and zooming position information to respective fixed cameras in response to occurrence of a traffic accident or the like in the driving area. In response to this request, the fixed cameras transmit the camera position information and the zooming position information to the server device. Based on camera position information and zooming position information, the server device derives the occurrence position of a traffic accident or the like, instructs a predetermined drone to capture the image around the occurrence position such as a traffic accident, and displays the captured image transmitted from the drone on a drone monitor.
