  • Publication number: 20190378299
    Abstract: [Problem] To enable three-dimensional measurement with good precision. [Solution] When three-dimensional measurement is to be performed with good precision using SLAM or the like, images of marks M1, M2, M3, M4 must be captured from various directions by a single-lens camera. In the present invention, directions of imaging by a camera are displayed as sectors C1, C2, C3, C4. For example, it is understood that whereas sectors C1 and C4 have a large central angle and imaging therein is performed from a wide range of directions, sectors C2 and C3 have a small central angle and imaging therein is performed from a narrow range of directions. A photographer seeing such a display can perform additional imaging, and images can therefore be obtained from a wide range of directions, and three-dimensional measurement can be performed with good precision.

  • Patent number: 10315403
    Abstract: A silicon substrate 12 has a main face in a (100) plane, whereby a fracture 17 generated from a molten processed region 13 acting as a start point extends in a cleavage direction of the silicon substrate 12 (a direction orthogonal to the main face of the silicon substrate 12). Here, a rear face 1b of an object to be processed 1A and a front face 10a of an object to be processed for separation 10A are bonded to each other by anode bonding, whereby the fracture 17 reaches a front face 1a of the object 1A continuously without substantially changing its direction. When generating a stress in the object for separation 10A, the fracture 17 has reached a rear face 10b of the object for separation 10A and thus easily extends toward the object 1A.
