  • Publication number: 20150281084
    Abstract: A processor receives a deadlock detection message transferred between a plurality of controlled devices so as to be transferred between a plurality of nodes along a first link and a second link, and determines whether a deadlock has occurred on the basis of a history of the deadlock detection message. The plurality of nodes are combined using the first link extending from a first node to a second node and the second link extending from a third node to a fourth node. The first node corresponds to a first controlled device whose control right a first terminal has. The second node corresponds to a second controlled device whose control right the first terminal has. The third node corresponds to a third controlled device whose control right a second terminal has. The fourth node corresponds to a fourth controlled device whose control right the second terminal waits to be given.

  • Publication number: 20150268994
    Abstract: An information processing device includes a processor; and a memory which stores a plurality of instructions, which when executed by the processor, cause the processor to execute: determining whether or not an action is executable based on a condition of a rule associated with the condition, the action, and a start priority; comparing a current priority that changes according to a state of an action in execution and an elapsed time since start of the state, with the start priority of the rule associated with the action determined to be executable; and instructing a management unit managing the execution of the actions to switch the action to be executed to the action of the rule associated with the start priority, based on the comparison result.

  • Patent number: 8565923
    Abstract: A robot includes: a moving mechanism; a position recognition section that recognizes a current position of the robot within a guide zone having at least one guide location; and a movement control section that moves the robot to each of guide locations in the guide zone by using the moving mechanism, while causing the position recognition section to recognize the current position. The robot further includes a transmission section that transmits, every time the robot moves to each of the guide locations, contents information corresponding to the guide location to a mobile receive terminal held by a person to be guided near the robot.

  • Patent number: 7120519
    Abstract: A remotely controlled robot comprises a unit storing the layout plan of a building, a unit receiving a position remotely designated in the layout plan from a remote location and a unit controlling the travel of the robot to the designated position. A self-position identification method is implemented by a robot with a camera whose shooting direction can be changed. The robot takes in advance a panoramic picture of a room where the robot may travel, generates a reference picture by extracting a plurality of block pictures from the panoramic picture and identifies a room where the robot is located, by applying correlation and DP matching, using both a picture taken in the room where the robot is located and the reference picture.
