  • Patent number: 11365076
    Abstract: To provide a configuration for allowing a user to easily take out a sheet stopped on a conveying belt. Regulating guides are disposed on both sides of a conveying belt in a sheet width direction Y and can guide both end edges in the sheet width direction of a sheet S being conveyed while being nipped by the conveying belt and the balls. A take-out port is provided on a side close to the regulating guide in the sheet width direction and serves as an opening for taking out the sheet stopped on the conveying belt. The regulating guide on a side away from the take-out port moves in the sheet width direction Y toward the take-out port when the sheet is stopped on the conveying belt.

  • Patent number: 11345555
    Abstract: A pair of regulating guides can guide both end edges in a sheet width direction Y of a sheet being conveyed being nipped by a conveying belt and balls. The pair of regulating guides can move to their respective guide positions each for guiding one of both end edges of the sheet and their respective retracting positions each retracting from one of the both end edges of the sheet by a distance larger than the guide position. A guide moving unit for moving the pair of regulating guides makes each of the pair of regulating guides reach the guide position from the retracting position after the rear end of the sheet passed from a conveying roller pair positioned on the upstream side to the conveying belt passes the conveying roller pair.

  • Patent number: 11176749
    Abstract: An imaging unit captures an image of a visual field. A detector detects a position of an eyeball and a sight line of an occupant. A visual point identifier identifies a position of a visual point of the occupant in the visual field, the eye position and the sight line direction. A measuring unit measures a position and a distance of an object included in the image of the visual field. An image generator generates display images based on the eye position and the position and the distance of the object. The display images are displayed on a virtual plane, fused on a fusion plane and displayed as a three-dimensional display on the visual field. The display images are generated to display the three-dimensional image at a given magnification ratio calculated by reducing a geometric display magnification ratio as the distance from the occupant increases.

  • Publication number: 20210300183
    Abstract: An in-vehicle display apparatus includes: an image generating unit, an emitting unit, and a reflecting unit. The image generating unit generates, for display information that is presented to a user, an image that includes a right-eye image and a left-eye image with a parallax. The emitting unit emits a projection light that is a light flux that contains the image. The reflecting unit reflects the projection light and forms a stereoscopic image that is superimposed on an outside view. The image generating unit generates the image in which a fusion distance of the stereoscopic image of the display information is changed, within a predetermined period of time, from a current visual distance to a target distance at which the display information is to be ultimately displayed.

  • Patent number: 11011062
    Abstract: A target pedestrian who is present within a range of a predetermined distance from a roadway is detected. Whether or not the target pedestrian has gazed at a crossing destination and whether or not the target pedestrian has performed a safety confirmation regarding vehicles traveling on the roadway are determined based on a gaze direction of the target pedestrian. As a result, when the target pedestrian has performed one action of either of gazing at the crossing destination and the safety confirmation, and then performed the other action within a predetermined amount of time, the target pedestrian is detected as a pre-crossing pedestrian who has an intention to cross the roadway. Consequently, a pedestrian who is attempting to cross the roadway can be accurately detected at a stage before the pedestrian actually starts crossing.

  • Patent number: 10473266
    Abstract: A high-pressure tank in which a liner can be formed using the conventionally used material, a decrease in the volumetric efficiency within the liner can be suppressed, and influence of a temperature rise due to adiabatic compression on the liner can be significantly alleviated. The tank includes a liner that suppresses permeation of gas; a valve device that allows the inside of the liner and the outside of the tank to communicate with each other and blocks communication therebetween; and an inner container with a through-hole disposed within the liner such that a gap is formed between the inner container and an inner periphery of the liner. The first communication channel of the valve device connects with a pipe extending in the gap and having holes therein. Gas supplied to the valve device is supplied into the gap from the holes in the pipe, and fills the inner container in a high-pressure state from the gap through the through-hole in the inner container.
