  • Publication number: 20190259139
    Abstract: A fusion processing unit performs warping with a high quality image as a reference by using a wide angle image that is generated by an imaging unit and has a wider angle of view than the high quality image generated by the imaging unit in a case where a predetermined condition is satisfied, and generates a fusion image by matching positions of image overlapping regions with each other of the high quality image having a higher image quality than the wide angle image and the wide angle image after the warping. A captured image can be generated having a wide angle of view and high image quality without degrading image quality using a plurality of captured images respectively having different angles of view and resolutions.

  • Publication number: 20190259166
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a data processing apparatus and a data processing method capable of generating evaluation index data for performing accurate and detailed evaluation of cultured cardiomyocytes. A motion detecting unit divides frame image data obtained by photographing the cultured cardiomyocytes for a predetermined time into blocks and obtains motion detection data in units of blocks per each frame period. A feature amount calculating unit calculates a feature amount for each block at the same position in a frame image using the motion detection data. A classification processing unit classifies each of the blocks into any one of a plurality of classification categories using the calculated feature amount. On the basis of the classification result, evaluation index data made of individual classification result data that represent correspondences between the blocks and the classification categories is generated.

  • Publication number: 20190260929
    Abstract: An object of the present technology is to make it possible to use an inexpensive imaging apparatus having no synchronization support function by a time code or the like, and to cut down a system cost, in synchronizing respective moving images in the case of outputting and displaying moving images input from a plurality of imaging apparatuses through network transmission. A vertical synchronization signal input from a particular imaging apparatus among a plurality of imaging apparatuses that capture moving images is used as a reference to select frame image data items from moving image data input from the plurality of imaging apparatuses, and the selected frame image data items are integrated into a single stream and sent.

  • Publication number: 20190213450
    Abstract: A fusion decision processing section, based on a feature amount calculated by using a monochrome imaged image acquired by imaging a subject with an imaging section, and a color imaged image acquired by imaging the subject from a different point-of-view position with another imaging section, performs fusion decision as to whether or not deterioration of image quality is caused in fusion processing for producing a fusion image obtained by fusion of the monochrome imaged image and the color imaged image with the monochrome imaged image as a reference in a fusion processing section. Moreover, the fusion image data produced in the fusion processing section is selected in a case where deterioration of image quality is not caused in the fusion processing, and demosaic data produced in a demosaic processing section is selected in a case where the deterioration of the image quality is caused in the fusion processing.

  • Patent number: 9614305
    Abstract: A connector including a terminal fitting having a wire connecting portion crimped to an end of a wire and configured to be inserted into a terminal accommodating chamber of a housing. A sleeve is mounted on a rear part of the terminal fitting and retains the terminal fitting by engaged the terminal fitting and a wall surface of the terminal accommodating chamber. A heat shrinkable tube is fitted on an outer periphery of the wire connecting portion while being accommodated in the sleeve and held in close contact with an outer periphery of the terminal fitting by being thermally shrunk. The sleeve includes a lift-up portion for holding the heat shrinkable tube in a fitted state so that a clearance is secured between the heat shrinkable tube and an upper surface of the wire connecting portion by lifting up the heat shrinkable tube before thermal shrinkage in a radial direction.

  • Patent number: 9218816
    Abstract: In a DAC device, a distortion correction function g1(x) of a harmonic obtained from a result of a frequency analysis on an analog output signal of a DAC circuit is obtained. A correction value is determined based on the correction function g1(x) in accordance with an input digital signal, and is previously stored in a memory. A nonlinear correction circuit reads a corresponding correction value from the memory in accordance with the value of a digital signal output from a digital filter, and transmits the correction value to a subtractor. The subtractor subtracts the correction value from the digital signal output from the digital filter.
