    Abstract: A shaped object includes a first shaped portion expressing a three-dimensional shape of an object in a first state by at least one bump on the surface of a first thermally expansive section that expands due to being heated, and second shaped portion expressing a three-dimensional shape of the object in a second state by at least one bump on the surface of a second thermally expansive section that expands due to being heated. The second state is a state in which the object is more deteriorated than in the first state. The height of the at least one bump on the surface of the second thermally expansive section at least partially differs from a height of the at least one bump on the surface of the first thermally expansive section.

  • Patent number: 9924477
    Abstract: A node includes a time difference measurement unit and a time setting unit. The time difference measurement unit measures a time difference between a first time based on latest received time information and a second time based on second-latest received time information. The time setting unit calculates an adjustment time difference when the time difference exceeds an allowable range of error that is smaller than an allowable range of maintainable communication, sets a time obtained by adding the adjustment time difference and the second time to the time of the node when the adjustment time difference is within the allowable range of maintainable communication, and sets a time obtained by adding a time difference corresponding to the allowable range of maintainable communication and the second time to the time of the node when the adjustment time difference exceeds the allowable range of maintainable communication.

  • Patent number: 9525614
    Abstract: A communication system includes: a specific node; and a plurality of nodes that are installed at fixed positions and perform ad hoc wireless communication with the specific node. The nodes each include a link quality evaluating unit, an upstream route constructing unit, a communicating unit, and a downstream route constructing unit. The link quality evaluating unit performs route evaluation using a hello frame based only on a track record of reception of the hello frame in order to perform upstream communication toward the specific node to form a network. The upstream route constructing unit constructs an upstream route based on the route evaluation. The communicating unit performs upstream communication toward the specific node on a regular basis with a predetermined frequency. The downstream route constructing unit constructs a downstream route from the specific node based on a route in the upstream communication toward the specific node.
