  • Patent number: 10841481
    Abstract: The present invention enables one to easily set an image capturing condition, and to easily grasp a state of a captured image. For doing so, an instruction of either a zooming-in control or a zooming-out control of the image capturing apparatus, is determined based on a position relation of a first coordinate and a second coordinate instructed with respect to an image from the image capturing apparatus displayed on a display unit. The image capturing apparatus is controlled based on the result of that determination, the first coordinates and the second coordinates.

  • Patent number: 10660069
    Abstract: A resource allocation device is provided that, responsive to a use request for resources of a network, the use request having a pair of nodes as terminal points designated among a plurality of nodes constituting the network, searches for one or more candidate paths between the terminal points, with which amounts of the resources related to the use request can be allocated, in a state where the resources that have been allocated to one or more other use requests are set aside from the network. The device calculates, for each of the one or more searched-for-candidate paths, in a state where the resources are allocated to the candidate path, a maximum number of paths that can be allocated between the terminal points of a virtual path related to the service, and selects the candidate path with which a sum total of the maximum numbers of paths becomes greatest.
