  • Patent number: 11129321
    Abstract: A movement error detection apparatus includes a plurality of marks including a fifth mark (movable region inside mark) arranged in a movable region of a movable conveyor and first to fourth marks (movable region outside marks) arranged outside the movable region of the movable conveyor; a substrate recognition camera (imaging device to move together with a mounting head to image the first to fifth marks; and a projection device (auxiliary device) to assist an imaging. The first to fourth marks are arranged on a horizontal reference plane including a substrate, and the fifth mark is arranged at a position which is lower than the horizontal reference plane and at which the movable conveyor is not interfered. The projection device absorbs a height difference between the fifth mark and the horizontal reference plane to assist the substrate recognition camera in picking up a focused image of the fifth mark.

  • Publication number: 20210028647
    Abstract: Included are an energy management apparatus that manages at least one or more management target that consumes energy; and a user terminal that transmits and receives information to and from the energy management apparatus via a network. The energy management apparatus includes an energy management controller that prepares a question regarding a behavior of a user who uses the at least one or more management target, and transmits it to the user terminal. The user terminal includes a user terminal controller that transmits a question answer regarding the received question to the energy management controller when receiving the question transmitted from the energy management controller. The energy management controller predicts an energy consumption amount of the at least one or more management target based on the received question answer when receiving the question answer transmitted from the user terminal controller.
