  • Publication number: 20190295007
    Abstract: A client device accepts event information for which a people flow prediction is to be performed from a user and the client device inputs the accepted event information to a people flow prediction device. The people flow prediction device outputs a result of people flow prediction responsive to the input event information to the client device and the client device displays the result of people flow prediction to the user. The people flow prediction device performs a people flow prediction by temporally and spatially allocating an event attendance which has been input from the client device to pathways, each connecting a transport facility at which a people flow originates and an event site. Consequently, it is possible to predict a flow of people who attend an event or the like, the people flow differing from that in an ordinary situation, without need to input real-time data.

  • Publication number: 20180118312
    Abstract: A first unit acquires attribute record data and a second unit acquires deterioration degree data from a terminal device mounted on a ship. The attribute record data indicates an attribute relating to a past sailing of the ship. The deterioration degree data indicates a deterioration degree, which is checked during performance of maintenance work, of each device mounted on the ship. A third unit generates relational data indicating a relation between various attributes relating to the state of the sailing of the ship and the deterioration degree of the device based on the attribute record data and deterioration degree data. A fourth unit acquires estimated attribute data indicating an estimated value of the attributes relating to sailing of the ship.

  • Publication number: 20180066596
    Abstract: A reference range identifying device acquires and records, at a predetermined time interval, a measuring result of a load and exhaust temperature of an engine. The device identifies, based on combinations of the load and exhaust temperature recorded at multiple points of time, for each load zone, for example a 95% confidence interval of a distribution of exhaust temperatures as a reference range. Subsequently, the device calculates an approximate curve for lower limits and upper limits of reference ranges identified for the load zones. The device identifies a range sandwiched by the calculated two approximate curves as a reference range that changes in accordance with a load. The device, upon detecting that a current load and exhaust temperature of the engine is not included in the reference range, notifies the detected fact to a user.

  • Patent number: 9592330
    Abstract: A dialysis apparatus has a dialysate circuit 4 which is cleaned after dialysis by both opening/closing valves V101 and V102 being closed after a dialysate in the dialysate circuit 4 is replaced with a cleaning liquid. The opening/closing valve V12 is opened, and the cleaning liquid is circulated by pumps P1 and P4 while being heated by a heater H1, to clean the inside of the dialysate circuit 4. A deaeration tank 31 is provided downstream of the pump P1. Air bubbles generated from the cleaning liquid serving as hot water are deaerated by the deaeration tank 31 and are then discharged into a gas storage tank 48 via a deaeration passage 32. The pumps P1 and P4 can be reliably prevented from being unable to operate with the air bubbles generated from the cleaning liquid.

    Abstract: There is provided a method of charging a hollow valve with metallic sodium easily and swiftly without being oxidized over the surface of the metallic sodium and an apparatus therefor. The metallic sodium is fed into a cavity of the hollow valve in which a valve stem has a smaller diameter. A workpiece, a semi-finished product for a hollow poppet valve, is disposed at a working position where an opening is directed upward. A cavity of the workpiece is open at a free end of the valve stem. A nozzle is inserted into the opening. An inert gas is jetted from the nozzle and is fed into the cavity. Then, the nozzle is moved up, and a holder that holds the rod-like metallic sodium 10 is disposed between the workpiece and the nozzle. While the inert gas is jetted from the nozzle, the metallic sodium is pressed into the cavity of the workpiece.
