  • Publication number: 20220326648
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus capable of providing a management apparatus with data that can be utilized for data analysis other than detection of signs of abnormality while keeping down costs required to build and maintain a communication environment. The image forming apparatus has a sensor. In the image forming apparatus, second data for use in detecting a sign of abnormality is generated based on first data comprised of measured values obtained by the sensor. The second data is transmitted directly or indirectly to the management apparatus that detects the sign of abnormality. Wherein, the second data is data that indicates characteristics of the image forming apparatus and has a smaller data amount that that of the first data.

  • Publication number: 20220301323
    Abstract: A consciousness state determination system comprises a first image-taking section which is mounted on a vehicle and takes images of a driver of the vehicle, an electronic control unit which executes a consciousness state determination process of determining whether the driver is conscious, based on a first image corresponding to the image of the driver taken by the first image-taking section, and a mobile terminal carried by the driver. The electronic control unit is configured to determine whether the driver is conscious, based on terminal-side information corresponding to information acquired by the mobile terminal when a predetermined condition that a reliability level of a determination result obtained from the consciousness state determination process is presumably low, becomes satisfied.
