  • Patent number: 7289881
    Abstract: A robot includes a robot sensor for sensing abnormality around the robot, a moving portion for moving the robot main body, and a movement control unit for controlling the moving portion so that the robot main body is moved to a destination determined according to the information sensed by a fixed-position sensor fixed to a predetermined position outside the robot. The moving destination may be determined by the total control unit of the robot main body according to the information from the fixed-position sensors or by a center communicating with the robot according to the information from the fixed-position sensors. Since abnormality is sensed by the fixed-position sensors together with the robot sensor, the fixed-position sensors may have low accuracy obtained at a low cost.

The specific information is information which fulfills the objective specification. This system charges a service fee to the information beneficiary, and pays a compensation to the information provider. The service fee and the compensation are offset for each terminal. The information beneficiary and provider are selected each time according to the objective specification. An information mediating system provided with a plurality of terminals which have both information sending and receiving functions, or either an information sending or a receiving function through a network, and provided with an information mediator which has an information mediating function to mediate an received information through the network.

  • Patent number: 7109875
    Abstract: In a sensor network system, a communications network connects a set of sensors to a server collectively managing the set of sensors. First, the sensor-managing server acquires remaining drive times of batteries in the sensors, and specifies a target remaining drive time. The server then controls the operation of the sensors so that the remaining drive times of the batteries in the sensors are substantially equal to the target remaining drive time. This reduces the maintenance workload for a system manager, especially, in the recharging of the sensor batteries.

  • Publication number: 20050152285
    Abstract: Specific information is registered to only a sensor, which is arranged adjacently to a base unit, by way of a radio output from the base unit. The radio output is a faint radio wave for short-range communications by which the base unit can be communicable with only the sensor adjacently arranged. Then, the specific information is registered to only another sensor, which is arranged adjacently to the sensor with the registered specific information, by way of a radio output from the sensor with the registered specific information. The radio output is a faint radio wave for short-range communications by which the communications can be made only between the sensors arranged adjacently to each other. The specific information registration is sequentially repeated between the sensors arranged adjacently to each other.
