The method includes generating a plurality of first pixel regions by virtually dividing the writing region, the first pixel regions each having a first size, calculating a coverage of a pattern in the first pixel region, generating a plurality of second pixel regions by virtually dividing the first pixel region, the second pixel regions each having a second size smaller than the first size, selecting a second pixel region approximating a pattern shape in the first pixel region, and calculating a coverage in the selected second pixel region.
Abstract: The object of the present invention is to suitably control a charging state of a human body all the time. A charging amount detection device 13 is worn by a human body and measures the surface potential of the human body. A static electricity control device 12 is worn by a human body and generates and discharges ions to the human body and thereby controls the static electricity on the human body. A mobile terminal 11 sets a control pattern of the static electricity on the human body that is suitable for a condition such as temperature and humidity for the static electricity control device 12 via short-range wireless communication. The static electricity control device 12 uses the set control pattern to perform feedback control of the static electricity on the human body by using the surface potential of the human body measured by the charging amount detection device 13.
