  • Publication number: 20190227566
    Abstract: A self-propelled vacuum cleaner 11 has a main casing 20, driving wheels 21, a travel control part 61, cameras 51, a suction port 31, and an electric cleaning unit 23. The driving wheels 21 are used to make the main casing 20 travel. The travel control part 61 controls the operation of the driving wheels 21. The cameras 51 capture the images of the forward area of the main casing 20. The suction port 31 is disposed in the lower part of the main casing 20. The electric cleaning unit 23 collects dust and dirt through the suction port 31. The suction port 31 is disposed in the main casing 20 at a position adjacent to image ranges CA of the cameras 51.

  • Publication number: 20130324563
    Abstract: It is an object of the present invention to provide: a method for safely and effectively enhancing the physiological action of caffeine even from a low intake of caffeine, when utilized various types of a physiological action of a caffeine which involve stimulation of the central nerve to promote mental function; and a composition for improving physiological function, which comprises, as an active ingredient, the caffeine whose physiological action has been enhanced. As a means to solve the above-mentioned object, the physiological action of caffeine is enhanced by combining caffeine with ornithine or a salt thereof. In addition, the ornithine or a salt thereof in an amount equivalent to 0.1 to 100 parts by weight of free ornithine based on 1 part by weight of the caffeine is mixed with caffeine, as an agent for enhancing the physiological action of caffeine, thereby providing a composition for improving a physiological function comprising caffeine as an active ingredient.

  • Publication number: 20080307470
    Abstract: A count value of a clock for reproduction is stamped in a receive packet of a program A from a tuner as a first time stamp, and a first operation for synchronously reproducing the receive packet is switched to a second operation for synchronously recording the receive packet based on the first time stamp and PCR added to the receive packet. In this case, a count value of a clock for recording is stamped in the receive packet as a second time stamp, and after all the receive packets, which are stored in a first buffer for temporarily storing a receive packet received by the one tuner, and in which the first time stamp is stamped, are output, the first receive packet is synchronously recorded based on the second time stamp stamped in the receive packet and PCR.
