  • Publication number: 20180306671
    Abstract: A first determination unit performs a process (first process) of sequentially dividing an intensity value constituting first data by a reference intensity value to calculate an intensity ratio and determining whether the intensity ratio exceeds a first threshold (steps S3 and S4). When a predetermined period has elapsed, a second determination unit calculates an average change rate of the first data in the predetermined period to determine whether the average change rate is within a predetermined range (steps S9 and S10). When it is determined that the average change rate is within the range, the reference intensity value is updated and lowered (step S11). When the reference intensity value is updated, the first determination unit performs the first process by using the updated reference intensity value in the next predetermined period.
