  • Patent number: 11984133
    Abstract: Disclosed is an operation device including an interaction member, a microphone, a control circuit, and an audio signal processing circuit. The interaction member is used for interacting with a user. The control circuit periodically acquires scan data indicating the acting status of the interaction member. The audio signal processing circuit executes a noise removal process of removing noise from a collected audio signal collected by the microphone. The control circuit periodically transmits previously acquired scan data to the audio signal processing circuit. The audio signal processing circuit executes the noise removal process by using the scan data transmitted from the control circuit.

  • Publication number: 20240111030
    Abstract: To improve resolution while suppressing the number of light emitting elements arranged in an optical module. The optical module is provided with an optical element that converts a light beam emitted from the light emitting element into a substantially parallel light beam or a light beam having a predetermined angular width, and a diffraction element that diffracts the light beam to separate into a plurality of light beams. The diffraction element generates diffracted lights in n direction, and an angle ?x formed between one diffraction direction and a side in a direction in which the light emitting element is arranged satisfies tan?1 (b/3a). A diffraction angle ?x of the diffracted light satisfies m·sgrt((3?a){circumflex over (?)}2+?b{circumflex over (?)}2)/(2(2n+1)). Note that, ?a and ?b are angular differences of two light beams caused by inter-light emission distances a and b. Furthermore, n is a natural number, and m is a natural number excluding an integral multiple of 2n+1.

  • Publication number: 20240089712
    Abstract: An object is to provide a data collection device and the like capable of reducing a load on an IoT terminal in metadata transmission and power consumption associated with the metadata transmission. In the present invention, a controller is provided on a data collection side that collects metadata, the metadata transmitted from an IoT terminal is grasped, and the IoT terminal is instructed to reduce the transmission frequency of metadata that does not need high real-time property according to a sensor, the type of the IoT terminal, or the like. The IoT terminal transmits the metadata only at a window time (transmission timing, data size, metadata type, or the like) permitted by the metadata controller. As a result, the IoT terminal transmits the metadata only at a limited timing, and thus can reduce a transmission load and power consumption.
