  • Patent number: 11027774
    Abstract: Provided is an actuator for a steering system, which can be increased in degree of freedom for design change, regardless of a configuration change of a hydraulic power steering side. The actuator for a steering system comprises a transmission mechanism configured to transmit the rotation of a steering shaft to a steered wheel, a piston disposed in the transmission mechanism, and a pair of pressure chambers configured to generate a force acting to move the piston. The actuator for a steering system is disposed between a hydraulic power steering system, which imparts a steering force to the steered wheel along with the movement of the piston, and a steering wheel.

  • Publication number: 20200265256
    Abstract: A device for analyzing a worker's work state, the analysis involving generation of determination data for determining whether worker's manual work is performed in a predetermined work order. This device includes imaging and setting units. The imaging unit images, a work video, a worker's manual working state in which the worker repeatedly performs predetermined work. This predetermined work is performed by repeating a plurality of fundamental work operations by hand. Based on a predetermined motion which is previously set for each of the fundamental work operations, the setting unit sets delimitation information to delimit the work video every fundamental work operation at a timing when the predetermined motion is detected. In the device, a generation unit generates determination data which includes both the imaged work video and the set delimitation information. Based on the determination data, the worker's manual work can be analyzed in various ways.

  • Patent number: 10540525
    Abstract: There is provided a system that uses a two-dimensional information code. The system administers an information code which is provided with a data recording region and an image region. The system is provided with a specific information acquisition section that acquires specific information of a subject or an object, as information recorded in the data recording region, or as information to be correlated to the information recorded in the data recording region. Further, the is provided with a unique image acquisition section that acquires a unique image of a subject or an object, or a unique image for specifying the subject or the object, as information indicated in the image region. Further, the system is provided with a registration section that registers specific information acquired by the specific information acquisition section, being correlated to a unique image acquired by the unique image acquisition section.

  • Publication number: 20190304132
    Abstract: Information codes each having a predetermined size, in which specific information for specifying the type of item is recorded, are provided by using shelf boards at positions where the respective types of the items are displayed on a display shelf. When two or more information codes whose specific information is read are included in one captured image captured by an imaging unit while no detected code is stored in the storage unit, the relative positional relationship among the two or more information codes is detected based on the sizes of the information codes. Further, when the captured image is determined as a partially undetected state, in which an undetected code is included together with at least one detected code, the relative positional relationship of the undetected code relative to the detected code is detected based on the size of the reference code.

  • Patent number: 10147028
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for generating an information code is provided. In a generation apparatus, after data to be interpreted and data of an image to be displayed are acquired, a code figure that is provided with an image display region is generated and displayed on a display unit. After the code figure is displayed on the display unit in this way, when information designating an arrangement content of the image display region is inputted, an information code is generated. Specifically, an information code is generated in a form in which the image display region is newly arranged based on the arrangement content designated by the input, and a specification pattern region and a region to be interpreted are provided in positions other than that of the image display region. The information code generated in this way is displayed on the display unit.

  • Patent number: 9704081
    Abstract: An information code producing apparatus produces a free space inside the code region of an information code arranged on a medium such as sheets of paper. The free space is arranged at a position other than specification pattern regions. Data being interpreted, which are expressed by cells, are not recorded in the free space. The free space has a preset size which is larger than that of a single cell. The information code producing apparatus detects the size of this free space by, at least, either selection from a plurality of candidate shapes prepared in advance or input of shape designating information provided from the outside.
