  • Publication number: 20190275606
    Abstract: Provided are a method and an apparatus for resistance spot welding in which preliminary current application is executed and then main welding is executed in accordance with master patterns of various parameters obtained during the preliminary current application. The main welding is executed under welding conditions of the master patterns, and whether a welding abnormality has occurred and whether the welding abnormality is likely to occur are determined. When the welding abnormality is likely to occur, the welding conditions for the main welding are corrected so as to prevent the welding abnormality. When the welding abnormality is unlikely to occur, the welding conditions for the main welding are corrected so as to match the master patterns.

  • Patent number: 9033782
    Abstract: A sensing baseball game apparatus (10) has a game machine (12) connected to a television monitor (18). A bat input device (32) is provided with an acceleration sensor. An acceleration signal is transmitted by an infrared-ray LED (34) to an infrared-ray receiving part of the game machine (12) whereby the game machine (12) determines a moving speed of the bat input device (32) to calculate a moving parameter of a ball to be batted. Accordingly, a batted ball is moved in the game scene according to the parameter.

  • Patent number: 8350912
    Abstract: A CMOS image sensor 1 outputs a differential signal (VF?VU) between a pixel signal (VF) in a period when a LED 7 is turned on in an exposure period and a pixel signal (VU) in a period when the LED 7 is turned off in the exposure period. This does not obtain a difference between a pixel signal in an exposure period and a pixel signal in a non-exposure period. It is possible to increase simplicity in utilization as well as suppressing fixed pattern noise by generating the difference between pixel signals in different exposure spans from each other.

  • Publication number: 20120132701
    Abstract: In step S260, a center server 31 accesses a search engine 98 to search for each of a company name and a commodity name corresponding to a barcode 11 as received in step S254, on a network 33. In step S262, the center server 31 acquires URLs which appear at the highest positions in the search ranking of the respective search results, and regards them as an address of an web site of the company and an address of an web site of the commodity. In step S264, the center server 31 transmits an individual portal screen, which includes link buttons for accessing the acquired URLs (the home page of the company and the web site of the commodity), to a PC 43.

  • Patent number: 8178312
    Abstract: The invention is a method of measuring blood glucose excursions in general, and postprandial hyperglycemia in diabetic patients in particular, by the 1,5-anhydroglucitol assay (1,5-AG) or A1C/1,5-AG assay combination. 1,5-AG levels and percent changes of 1,5-AG levels in short period are indicative of differing postmeal glucose levels in moderately-controlled diabetic patients with similar A1C levels. Thereby 1,5-AG assay is useful to identify diabetic patients who may be at risk for cardiovascular complications which would not be identifiable by A1C levels alone. Furthermore, ratios of A1C divided by 1,5-AG in each patient are superior indicators to 1,5-AG levels.

  • Patent number: 7963851
    Abstract: A card game apparatus 12 includes an image sensor 54. The image sensor photographs a design (31: FIG. 2) printed on a card 30. A photographic signal from the image sensor is sampled by a game processor 64, and is further re-sampled to form a photographic pixel data array. A ROM 66 is provided with a database (67A: FIG. 7) which is assigned a comparison data array and a card ID for each entry. By searching the database based on the photographic pixel data array, the processor 64 obtains one card ID and displays card data of the card identified by the card ID on a television monitor.

  • Publication number: 20110093943
    Abstract: A terminal 5 to which a USB device 7 is connected accesses a host computer 1 firstly to transmit a serial number of the USB device 7. The host computer 1 accesses a database 11 with the serial number as an index to retrieve a URL related to the serial number, and instructs the terminal to access the URL. Hence, a WEB page is sent from a WEB server W-2 addressed by the URL to the terminal 5, and is displayed on the terminal 5. In this way, the host computer 1 can subsequently determine the WEB server to be accessed in accordance with the serial number because of the fact of absolutely passing through the host computer 1.
