  • Publication number: 20210056727
    Abstract: An imaging apparatus comprises a camera and a controller. The camera generates a captured image. The controller superimposes a calibration object movable by translation or rotation in the captured image. In the case where a plurality of indexes I located at positions determined with respect to a moveable body having the camera mounted therein are subjected to imaging, the controller moves the calibration object so that a first corresponding portion coincides with an image of a first index of the plurality of indexes, and performs distortion correction on an area in the captured image determined based on a position of the image of the first index and a position of an image of a second index in the captured image and a position at which the calibration object is superimposed so that the image of the second index coincides with a second corresponding portion.

  • Patent number: 10916126
    Abstract: A driving assistance apparatus includes a communication interface and a processor. The communication interface acquires information related to the position of a vehicle and road information related to a road. The processor determines whether the road is passable based on the acquired information.

  • Patent number: 10829042
    Abstract: An imaging apparatus includes an image sensor and an image processor. The image sensor has at least one type of color filter and a specific filter disposed thereon in a manner corresponding to each pixel on a light receiving surface. The specific filter transmits light in a particular wavelength range in which spectral irradiance of sunlight is lower than that in wavelength ranges adjacent to either side of the particular wavelength range. The image processor detects an emission state of a particular light source based on a signal component of an image signal generated by pixels having the specific filters thereon. The particular light source is different from the sunlight.

  • Publication number: 20200342757
    Abstract: The disclosed image processing apparatus (10) includes a communication interface (12) and a processor (13). The processor (13) detects an image of an object from a surrounding image capturing the surroundings of a moveable body (1) and determines an action of the moveable body (1) based on the state of the detected object. The communication interface (12) outputs, to the moveable body (1), an instruction to perform the determined action. The processor (14) determines a first action of the moveable body (1) based on the state of the object detected from the surrounding image and outputs an instruction to perform the determined first action to the moveable body (1) via the communication interface (12). The processor (14) determines a second action of the moveable body (1) based on the state of the object detected from the surrounding image after the first action by the moveable body (1).
