  • Patent number: 9225420
    Abstract: A communication method in the present disclosure is a communication method for obtaining information from a subject, including: taking a picture of the subject in a picture-taking mode, thereby obtaining image data; performing, after the taking, visible light communication in a visible light communication mode which is a different mode from the picture-taking mode, thereby obtaining visible light data of the subject; and embedding the visible light data obtained, into the image data, and thus saving the visible light data obtained.

  • Publication number: 20150287253
    Abstract: A method for managing information obtains, through a first communication circuit, a locker identifier and a user identifier from a locker into which a user card has been inserted, obtaining, through a second communication circuit, a machine identifier and a key identifier from a machine that has read the key identifier, and outputting, using a first database that associates the locker identifier and the key identifier with each other and the obtained locker identifier and user identifier, the user identifier corresponding to the key identifier to the machine to set the user identifier to the machine.

  • Publication number: 20150138481
    Abstract: The organic insulating film has an opening through which the drain electrode is partially exposed. The opening has a side wall extending from above the drain electrode. The pixel electrode has a contact portion that is in contact with the drain electrode in the opening of the organic insulating film, a wiring portion that extends directly on the side wall of the organic insulating film from the contact portion, and a body portion that is linked to the wiring portion and is located on the organic insulating film. The interlayer insulating film covers the pixel electrode. The interlayer insulating film covers the source electrode and directly covers the semiconductor film between the source-electrode side surface and the drain-electrode side surface. The common electrode has fringes opposed to the pixel electrode via the interlayer insulating film.

  • Publication number: 20150139659
    Abstract: An information communication method includes: determining whether conflict over use of a light receiving unit will occur between a first program for performing visible light communication and a second program for performing processing different from the visible light communication; notifying a user that the conflict will occur if it is determined that the conflict will occur; permitting one of the first program and the second program to use the light receiving unit in response to an operation by the user; and causing, by the first program, a computer to execute visible light communication according to light detected by the light receiving unit if the first program is permitted to use the light receiving unit.

  • Publication number: 20140354932
    Abstract: A liquid crystal display panel includes a thin film transistor disposed on an insulating substrate in a display region, an external wiring for connecting the thin film transistor to a terminal electrode, and a planarized film disposed on the thin film transistor, and having a planarized upper surface. The planarized film is not disposed, or a planarized film having a smaller film thickness than that of the planarized film in the display region is disposed, above the external wiring in a frame region.

  • Publication number: 20140285475
    Abstract: A stylus detecting device detects a pointed position which is a position pointed to by a stylus, and includes a first camera; a second camera; and a control unit including an axis detecting unit that detects a three-dimensional position and attitude of an axis of the stylus by using two images captured respectively by the first and second cameras, and a pointed position detecting unit that calculates as the pointed position a point of intersection between a straight line indicated by the axis of the stylus whose three-dimensional position and attitude have been detected by the axis detecting unit and a target plane having a predetermined positional relationship with respect to the first and second cameras.

  • Publication number: 20140146262
    Abstract: A liquid crystal display panel includes: a transparent insulating substrate; a signal line and a scanning line arranged in a display region on the transparent insulating substrate and crossing each other in a matrix; a protective insulating film arranged so as to cover at least the signal line and the scanning line from above; a first insulating film that covers the protective insulating film from above; and a first contact hole that penetrates at least the first insulating film and the protective insulating film to reach a surface of a common interconnect. The first contact hole has a bottom and an inner side surface covered with a first stacked film composed of a first transparent conductive film made of the same material as the lower electrode and a second transparent conductive film made of the same material as the upper electrode.

  • Publication number: 20130293469
    Abstract: A user interface control device provides a GUI allowing a depth of a graphic to be easily set when composing the graphic with a stereoscopic image. The device comprises: a graphic information obtaining unit that specifies an area occupied by the graphic when the graphic is arranged on one of two viewpoint images forming a stereoscopic image; a depth information analyzing unit that acquires a depth of a subject appearing within the specified area occupied by the graphic in the one viewpoint image; and a depth setting presenting unit that presents a first alternative and a second alternative for setting a depth of the graphic, the first alternative corresponding to the depth of the subject, and the second alternative corresponding to a depth differing for the depth of the subject.

  • Publication number: 20130071013
    Abstract: A feature point extraction unit 901 extracts a feature point suitable for calculation of parallax from pixels constituting a region targeted for calculation of parallax and pixels located near the targeted region. A first parallax calculation unit 902 calculates parallax for the extracted feature point by performing a search for corresponding points. A second parallax calculation unit 903 calculates parallax for each of the pixels constituting the targeted region based on the parallax calculated by the first parallax calculation unit 902 for the extracted feature point.
