  • Patent number: 11074441
    Abstract: Image analysis processing is performed on a scanned image to detect a document area and, based on the detected document area, a tilt-corrected document image is obtained by extraction and tilt correction of the document image. Further, an image output size of printing an image in a repeat target area specified based on the tilt-corrected document image is specified, magnification of the image in the repeat target area is changed to the output size, and the image is repeatedly laid out within a specified sheet size. Thus, in an apparatus that generates a repeat layout processed output image and controls print processing, an image output size which is the same as an image output size for the front side of a sheet is specified for the back side of the sheet in a case where the repeat layout processing is performed on both the sides of the sheet.

  • Patent number: 10896012
    Abstract: A tilt-corrected document image is obtained by performing image analysis processing on a scan image to detect a document area and performing extraction and tilt correction of a document image based on the detected document area. The tilt-corrected document image and a frame indicating a repeat target area are displayed in a repeat target area specification screen. The initially displayed frame indicates an area corresponding to the tilt-corrected document image. A position of the displayed frame can be changed based on a user's instruction on the screen. A repeat layout-processed output image is generated by repeatedly laying out an image of the repeat target area determined based on the frame set on the screen within a specified sheet size, and print processing is made executable.

  • Patent number: 10858018
    Abstract: A train information management device sends and receives information to and from both a train-controlling in-vehicle wireless station for controlling an operation of a train, and a door-controlling in-vehicle wireless station for controlling vehicle doors. The device includes a wireless train control unit, an automatic operation unit, and a door control unit. The wireless train control unit receives route information represented by a consecutive block sequence and information on a stop limit location that the train may reach without hindering a preceding train, and if this route information includes a station block number, consults an in-vehicle database to extract, before the train arrives at a platform, an arrival track where the train is to stop, a stop target location at a stop station dependent on a travel direction of the train, and which of the vehicle doors is to be opened, and stops the train in accordance with the route information.

  • Patent number: 10853010
    Abstract: A tilt-corrected document image is obtained by performing image analysis processing on a scan image to detect a document area and performing extraction and tilt correction of a document image based on the detected document area. A repeat target area is set based on the obtained tilt-corrected document image. The number of repetitions in repeatedly laying out the repeat target area for each of a plurality of candidate sheet sizes is calculated, and a list screen showing the calculated numbers of repetitions for the respective plurality of candidate sheet sizes is displayed. A repeat layout-processed output image is generated by repeatedly laying out an image of the repeat target area within a sheet size specified by a user, and print processing is made executable.

  • Patent number: 10706581
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus estimates obverse and reverse pairs as obverse and reverse images of a plurality of cards even if positions of obverse and reverse images of respective cards shift when a user turns cards upside down to scan reverse images when scanning obverse and reverse images of cards and associating obverse and reverse images of cards with each other as obverse and reverse pairs, and presents estimated pairs to the user. A first image and second image are acquired to extract first and second rectangular images and central coordinate values thereof from acquired first and second images. When the central coordinate value extracted from the acquired second image is located within a predetermined distance from the central coordinate value extracted from the acquired first image, it is discriminated that the first rectangular image and second rectangular image as a combination serving as an obverse and reverse pair.

  • Patent number: 10540752
    Abstract: A server receives an input image group from an MFP. The server decides a reference image from the input image group, and generates rotated images by deforming the reference image. The server calculates image feature amounts from the reference image and the rotated images, and generates direction determiners using the image feature amounts. With respect to each of images of the input image group, the server determines the directions of the images by applying the direction determiners, and when the directions of the images are different from the direction of the reference image, the images are rotated to the direction of the reference image, and the directions of each of the images of the input image group are unified. The server generates a classification rule to be used in classification of images using the input image group in which the directions are unified.

  • Patent number: 10377398
    Abstract: A train wireless system includes a train detecting apparatus on the ground and a controller on a train. The detecting apparatus includes a detector and a calculator. The detector detects that the train is on rails in a block. The calculator measures an on-rail time during which the detector detects the train in the block, and calculates an on-rail detecting time during which the train has been on the rails in the block. The controller includes a distance measurer, a time measurer, a recorder, and a train-length calculator. The distance measurer measures a travelling distance of the train from a beginning of the block, the time measurer measures an elapsed time since the distance measurer starts the measurement, the recorder records the elapsed time and the travelling distance, and the train-length calculator searches the recorder based on the detecting time, and calculates the train length using a selected travelling distance.
