  • Patent number: 11225114
    Abstract: A conveying device according to the present invention includes a first connection mechanism provided on an upper surface, a base member provided on the upper surface, a sliding mechanism that relatively and slidably moves the position of the first connection mechanism relative to the base member on the slide axis, and a traveling mechanism that makes the conveying device travel. The first connection mechanism has an over-riding portion provided on the slide axis, and a connection part connected with the object to be conveyed. The over-riding portion is in an over-riding state of over-riding an upper surface of the base member when the sliding mechanism slidably moves the position of the first connection mechanism relative to the base member. The connection part performs a lifting operation to be connected with the object to be conveyed when the over-riding portion is in the over-riding state.

  • Patent number: 10625937
    Abstract: A conveying device according to the present invention includes a first connection mechanism provided on an upper surface, a base member provided on the upper surface, a sliding mechanism that relatively and slidably moves a position of the first connection mechanism on a slide axis relative to the base member, and a traveling mechanism that makes the conveying device travel. The first connection mechanism is connected with a carriage at a predetermined connection position. The sliding mechanism slidably moves the first connection mechanism between the connection position and a predetermined conveyance position spaced away from the connection position on the slide axis in a state in which the first connection mechanism is connected with the carriage. The traveling mechanism makes the conveying device travel in a state in which the first connection mechanism is positioned in the conveyance position.

  • Publication number: 20150326174
    Abstract: Provided is a cleaning device that does not cause degradation of cleaning performance even if there is an obstacle on a surface to be cleaned. A cleaning device includes a housing, blades used for cleaning, a cleaning liquid supply section for supplying cleaning liquid to a surface of a solar cell module, and a wheel for travelling on a solar photovoltaic power generation device. Moreover, the blades are arranged in such a manner that regions which pass through a fixation member are shifted and overlap each other in a front-rear direction with respect to an advancing direction.

  • Patent number: 8659709
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to obtain a display device having excellent display quality by appropriately modifying the chromaticity of images. In this display device, a correction processing part (CPU 30) determines a first chromaticity change amount stored in memory (31) on the basis of a first cumulative usage amount, which is the cumulative usage amount of an LED (17) up to a present time, the cumulative value having been measured by a counter (32), and the correction processing part also determines a second chromaticity change amount stored in the memory (31) on the basis of a second cumulative usage amount, which is the cumulative usage amount of the LED (17) up to a time when the chromaticity of a pixel is adjusted by a chromaticity adjusting part (CPU 30), the cumulative value having been measured by the counter (32).
