  • 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.

  • 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.
