  • Patent number: 10746664
    Abstract: Provided are a polarizing film imaging apparatus, a polarizing film inspection apparatus including the imaging apparatus, and a polarizing film inspection method using the imaging apparatus. The imaging apparatus includes: a light source that is configured to emit light toward a polarizing film to be inspected; an imaging unit that is arranged on an optical axis of the light source and on an opposite side to the light source with the polarizing film therebetween; and at least one of a circular polarizing plate arranged between the light source and the polarizing film, and a wavelength plate arranged between the polarizing film and the imaging unit.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: July 30, 2018

  • Patent number: 10146227
    Abstract: An in-vehicle driving assistance apparatus includes an automatic garage leaving control unit that performs automatic garage leaving cooperation control in which the automatic garage leaving control unit cooperates with a shutter control apparatus to cause a vehicle to automatically leave the garage. The automatic garage leaving control unit acquires vehicle surrounding information on presence or absence of abnormality around the vehicle when the automatic garage leaving control unit accepts an automatic garage leaving request signal, transmits an open request signal requesting to open a shutter to the shutter control apparatus when the automatic garage leaving control unit determines based on the vehicle surrounding information that a space around the vehicle is safe, and suspends the automatic garage leaving cooperation control when the automatic garage leaving control unit determines that abnormality is present around the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10026000
    Abstract: A visual line detection device according to an embodiment includes a detection unit, an acquisition unit, a determination unit, a calculation unit, and a calibration unit. The detection unit detects a visual line direction of a driver in a vehicle. The acquisition unit acquires a running state of the vehicle. The determination unit determines whether or not the running state acquired by the acquisition unit is a gazing state where the driver is gazing at a particular position. The calculation unit calculates a representative value for a detection result of the detection unit in a case where the determination unit determines that the running state is the gazing state. The calibration unit executes calibration for detection of the visual line direction by the detection unit in such a manner that the representative value calculated by the calculation unit is a reference thereof.

  • Patent number: 9810463
    Abstract: An integrated air conditioning system includes an indirect outdoor air cooler having a first heat exchanger for passing through indoor air as warm air, a second heat exchanger for passing through outdoor air, and piping and a pump for circulating a fluid through the first heat exchanger and the second heat exchanger; an air conditioner having an evaporator, a compressor, and a condenser, for passing the indoor air to convert to cold air; a fan for passing the outdoor air through the second heat exchanger and the condenser; and a control device. The control device sets any mode from among a first mode for performing an individual operation of the indirect outdoor air cooler, a second mode for performing an individual operation of the air conditioner, or a third mode for performing a combined operation of the air conditioner and the indirect outdoor air cooler, to a current operation mode.
