  • Publication number: 20220414957
    Abstract: By performing, on an original image having pixel values representing depths of positions on a textured surface of a target object, a conversion for making an element histogram of a steerable pyramid of the original image the same as or similar to an element histogram of a steerable pyramid of a reference image having pixel values representing depths of positions on a textured surface of a reference object, for each spatial frequency band and each orientation band, histogram modulated images are obtained, and the histogram modulated images obtained for the spatial frequency bands and orientation bands are synthesized to obtain an image corresponding to a modulated image having pixel values representing depths of positions on a textured surface of a modulated object.

  • Publication number: 20210398293
    Abstract: A technique that automatically adjusts a motion given to a projection target using a perceptual model is provided. A motion vector generation apparatus includes a first parameter generation unit that generates a first parameter that is a parameter for scaling a motion vector based on a perceptual difference between a projection result reproduction image which is an image that is obtained when a projection target onto which a projection image obtained based on the motion vector has been projected is photographed and a warped image which is an image generated by distorting an image obtained when the projection target is photographed by a perceptual amount of motion perceived when the projection result reproduction image is viewed, and a motion vector reduction unit that scales the motion vector using the first parameter.

  • Patent number: 10300912
    Abstract: A collision avoidance apparatus includes an obstacle detection section for detecting an obstacle, a collision avoidance section which performs collision avoidance assist control, and an avoidance processing start section for causing the collision avoidance section to start the collision avoidance assist control. In the case where the obstacle is a continuous obstacle, the timing of starting the collision avoidance assist control is delayed as compared with the case where the obstacle is not a continuous obstacle. Further, the greater the degree of gentleness of the inclination of the continuous obstacle, the greater the amount by which the timing of starting the collision avoidance assist control is delayed.
