  • Patent number: 11232570
    Abstract: A diagnostic system, method, and a computer-readable storage medium for determining a severity of a gastric condition, such as gastritis, in a subject are disclosed. The diagnostic system includes a processor that obtains an image of a stomach of the subject collected by an endoscope. The processor can compare the subject image with reference normal and abnormal stomach images. If the subject image is abnormal, the processor can generate a subject abnormality image indicative of the differences between the subject image and the normal image. By comparing the generated subject abnormality image with reference abnormality images representative of different severity levels of gastritis, the processor can diagnose the subject as having a particular severity level of gastritis.

  • Publication number: 20220017079
    Abstract: A collision avoidance assist apparatus executes an emergency steering control including processes to determine a target steering torque used to change a steering angle to avoid a collision of a vehicle with an obstacle so as not to move the vehicle out of a moving lane when the vehicle has a high probability of colliding with the obstacle, and the moving lane is a straight lane, and applies a steering torque corresponding to the determined target steering torque to a steering mechanism. The collision avoidance assist apparatus stops executing the emergency steering control when determining that the moving lane is a curved lane, based on only one of left and right lane markings at an avoidance side of the obstacle which is the left or the right side of the obstacle which the vehicle passes over while executing the emergency steering control.
