  • Patent number: 11983019
    Abstract: An unmanned aerial vehicle that delivers a package includes a plurality of rotary wings, a plurality of first motors, a main body, a connector, a movable block, and a processor. When the connector is connected to a rail, the processor sets a rotation rate of the plurality of first motors to a rotation rate that is lower than a minimum rotation rate necessary for floating and higher than a minimum rotation rate necessary for propulsion along the rail. Furthermore, the processor causes the movable block to increase the angle formed by the normal direction of an imaginary plane containing the plurality of rotary wings relative to a support direction of the connector.

  • Patent number: 8089428
    Abstract: In an image display apparatus using an FED or an organic EL element, image display that is high in illumination uniformity and high in image quality can be performed. A display element with a matrix structure which conducts linear sequential driving which determines the luminance by a current is used, a threshold voltage of a cathode line immediately before one select period has been terminated where a control electrode line is sequentially driven is measured by a threshold voltage measuring section, the measured threshold voltage is recorded for each of the pixels, and a driving signal at the time of selecting the pixel is corrected by using the value of the recorded threshold voltage, to thereby control electric charge that is emitted from a cathode.
