  • Patent number: 10122885
    Abstract: An image reading device includes: an FB glass; a sensor module having a light source and a plurality of sensors; and an image processor that generates correction data to be used for shading correction and performs the shading correction on image signals by using the correction data. The plurality of sensors is arranged in a main scanning direction and is configured to form an image signal on a single line. The image processor acquires second black data by causing the plurality of sensors to acquire an image signal of a reference sheet placed on the FB glass with the light source turned on, and generates black correction data based on the second black data. By performing the shading correction by using the black correction data, the image processor corrects density unevenness, in an image, caused by interference between image signals from the plurality of sensors.
