  • Patent number: 9495749
    Abstract: A pose detecting system includes: a marker using a microlens array; a camera; and a computer receiving a marker image. The marker includes: a lens area constituted of the microlens array and a mark array having a plurality of marks arrayed with a pitch similar to that between a plurality of lenses constituting the microlens array so as to produce a moiré pattern; and four reference points. The computer performs: determining the pose of the marker based on the four reference points; analyzing the moiré pattern so as to calculate an angle formed by the marker and a straight line connecting the center of an integrated mark that emerges at the lens area as the moiré pattern and is similar in shape to each of the plurality of marks to a viewpoint at the marker; and correcting the pose of the marker by using the angle.

  • Patent number: 7314361
    Abstract: With a split-type vulcanizing mold, a proper clamping force of the mold is obtained without carrying out shim adjustment. A lower washer (16), disc springs (17), and an upper washer (18) are inserted into each of a plurality of cylindrical holes (15) defined on the circumference of a spacer ring (14). A spacer ring (14) provides an outer ring (8) with a pre-load so as to be tightened up by a bolt (12), so that the outer ring (8) can be smoothly moved without backlash in the axial direction thereof all the time. Selection is made on the disc springs (17) having a load such that a proper clamping force is obtained when a deflection of the disc springs (17) is equivalent to half a deflection at the time of the maximum load of the disc springs (17), and regardless of whether variation in dimensions, at the time of fabricating the mold, is on the plus side or minus side, the variation in dimensions is absorbed to thereby clamp the respective sector molds (6) with a proper clamping force.
