  • Publication number: 20130077874
    Abstract: An image pickup device includes an image acquiring unit, calculating unit, memory controlling unit, first judging unit and notification unit. The calculating unit calculates a degree of similarity between information of a specific subject contained in the image acquired by the acquiring unit and identification information of the specific subject registered in a registering unit. The memory controlling unit controls a memory unit to store the calculated degree of similarity such that the degree of similarity is associated with date/time information. The first judging unit judges whether the calculated degree of similarity is relatively low compared with predetermined number of other degrees of similarity based on a chronological change of the degrees of similarity. The notification unit notifies that the identification information registered in the registering unit is to be renewed when judged, by the first judging unit, that the calculated degree of similarity is relatively low.

  • Patent number: 7667342
    Abstract: A power supply system that supplies high-voltage power to a vehicle drive motor is provided to achieve reduction in size, weight and cost of power supply. The power supply system includes a plurality of battery modules connected in series. With the intermediate connection point of the battery modules as an electrical neutral point, power is supplied to a three-level inverter via a three-level-potential high-voltage power supply line having potentials of +150V and ?150V relative to this neutral point. In the three-level inverter, direct-current electric power is converted into three-phase alternating-current electric power to drive an electric motor. Accordingly, the withstand-voltage performance required of control units or control elements connected to the high-voltage power supply line can be halved as compared with the related art, thereby allowing a reduction in the size, weight, and cost of the power supply system.

  • Patent number: 6914233
    Abstract: The wafer mapping system has an access port for transferring a wafer in and out and detects an accommodated wafer for a cassette in which slots for accommodating and holding inserted wafers are disposed in tiers. The wafer mapping system includes (1) a receiver that is fixed to a member facing the access port for receiving elements arranged serially along a height direction of the cassette, and (2) a transmitter that is disposed movable in an up and down direction of the cassette and transmits a signal toward a wafer accommodated in each of the slots of the cassette. The receiver receives a signal from the transmitter, and thereby the presence or absence of a wafer and a state of a wafer accommodated in each of the slots of the cassette are detected. Thereby, with a simple system configuration, an accommodation state of the wafer can be accurately detected.

  • Publication number: 20030182521
    Abstract: A terminal apparatus attaches an in-writing signal to an e-mail by a command processing portion and develops the in-writing signal into a sending buffer during the period of writing received rewriting data. The terminal apparatus sends the e-mail to a center apparatus. In addition, after the terminal apparatus performs writing all the rewriting data and completes rewriting firmware, the terminal apparatus attaches a rewriting completion signal to e-mail by the command processing portion and develops the rewriting completion signal into the sending buffer. The terminal apparatus sends the e-mail to the center apparatus. The center apparatus judges that rewriting the firmware in the terminal apparatus is completed when the center apparatus receives the rewriting completion signal after receiving the in-writing signal from the terminal apparatus.

  • Patent number: 5850231
    Abstract: An electronic device maintains data utilizing a ferroelectric memory, not requiring a backup power source voltage. Data such as schedule data and telephone number data is stored in a ferroelectric RAM which switches between a dynamic mode and a nonvolatile mode. When a clock mode is designated by a "CLK" key, a memory control circuit causes the ferroelectric RAM to be switched to the nonvolatile mode to maintain the data stored therein. When a schedule mode or a telephone mode is designated by means of a "Sch" key or a "Tel" key, the ferroelectric RAM is switched to the nonvolatile mode to write/read data therein/therefrom. When it is detected that a battery voltage is lowered or the battery is removed from the electronic device, the ferroelectric RAM is switched to the nonvolatile mode to protect the stored data.
