  • Patent number: 10699106
    Abstract: A direction discrimination device includes: an extraction unit configured to extract pieces of feature information from an image of a person, each of the pieces of feature information representing a feature of corresponding one of portions of the person; and a discrimination unit configured to discriminate a direction of the person based on the pieces of feature information. The discrimination unit is configured to weight first feature information which is feature information of a portion that is likely to have a difference in the feature between a first direction and a second direction range, more than second feature information which is feature information of a portion that is less likely to have a difference, in determination of the direction of the person. The second direction range not includes the first direction and includes a second direction opposite to the first direction.

  • Patent number: 10241497
    Abstract: Control that is less likely to cause an overshoot is performed when an actual inertia value is yet to be determined. A development support apparatus sets a ratio of a position proportional gain to a velocity proportional gain to a value smaller than a ratio set when a servo driver has determined an actual inertia value of a load machine.
