  • Patent number: 10912510
    Abstract: A subject performs a sit-to-stand operation while wearing a device (SU) that contains an acceleration sensor (11) on the front of the chest. The present invention derives a muscular strength index representing the muscular strength of a human body by obtaining maximum acceleration value data from a signal expressing the size of an acceleration vector comprising a tri-axial component in detected acceleration, and using the maximum acceleration value data and the muscle mass or body fat mass of the subject. The present invention has the ability to derive a physical activity amount from the acceleration detection results, and on the basis of the activity amount (ACT) during a prescribed activity target period and the muscular strength index at the start and end times of the activity target period, obtains an activity efficiency index that corresponds to changes in the muscular strength index in response to the amount of activity.

  • Patent number: 10753741
    Abstract: For triaxial magnetic detection data sequentially acquired as data points in a triaxial coordinate system, an offset calculation unit 30 calculates virtual data points P1?-P6? by evenly parallel-translating each of data points P1-P7 so that a reference data point P7, for example, arbitrarily chosen from the data points P1-P7 coincides with an origin point O. A virtual offset point C? for which the sum of the distances between the virtual data points P1?-P6? and a curved surface H1 passing through the origin point O is minimized is then calculated. An offset value C for the magnetic detection data is then calculated by parallel-translating the virtual offset point C? so as to restore the parallel-translated portion.

  • Patent number: 10697780
    Abstract: A position correction device includes: a reception unit, a position acquisition unit, a determination unit and a position information transmission unit. The reception unit receives a position information S1 of a vehicle from a navigation apparatus. The position acquisition unit acquires a position information S2 of the vehicle with a higher accuracy than the navigation apparatus. The determination unit determines whether a difference between the position information S1 and the position information S2 exceeds a predetermined threshold, or determines whether a traveling road identified by the position information S1 matches a traveling road identified by the position information S2. At least when it is determined that the difference exceeds the threshold, or when it is determined that the identified traveling roads do not match, the position information transmission unit transmits the position information S2 to the navigation apparatus.
