  • Patent number: 10868935
    Abstract: An information processing device includes a memory and a processor. The memory stores a first application. The first application is executable on the information processing device that operates in a first operating environment or a second operating environment and is capable of communicating with a second application. The processor obtains communication connection information on a communication connection with a communication target device currently communicated with the information processing device, based on a determination that the information processing device operates in the first operating environment. The communication connection information has been acquired by the second application that controls the communication connection established between the information processing device and the communication target device.

  • Patent number: 10686727
    Abstract: An operation device is connected to a device main body through a communication channel to operate the device main body. The operation device includes a control module configured to control a use right of the communication channel used by an application. When a certain application performs communication through the communication channel, the control module determines whether the communication is available or not available based on a request for the use right to perform communication from the application, and notifies the application of a determination result to restrict the number of applications performing communication at the same time.

  • Patent number: 10379788
    Abstract: An information processing system includes a first device and a second device that allows a user to operate the first device via the second device. The information processing system includes a processor and a memory to store a plurality of instructions. When executed by the processor, the plurality of instructions cause the processor to store, in the memory, apparatus configuration image element information regarding one or more elements of an apparatus configuration image of the first device, structure the apparatus configuration image using the apparatus configuration image element information, the apparatus configuration image indicating a configuration of the first device, and in response to execution of an application program on the second device, control a display to display an image based on the apparatus configuration image.

  • Patent number: 10194044
    Abstract: An image forming system includes a main body including a first control part controlling a power mode of the main body and an engine executing image processing, and an operation apparatus receiving an operation for instructing the engine to execute the image processing. The operation apparatus including a second control part controlling a power mode of the operation apparatus. When the operation apparatus receives an instruction to shift the power mode of the main body or the operation apparatus, the first control part determines whether shifting is possible based on a first program executed by the main body and controls a power supply of the main body according to the determination, and the second control part determines whether shifting is possible based on a second program executed by the operation apparatus and controls a power supply of the operation apparatus according to the determination.
