  • Publication number: 20210215377
    Abstract: A ventilation device control apparatus includes an image acquisition unit, a first calculation unit, and a ventilation control unit. The image acquisition unit acquires a captured image from an image capturing device that captures an image of a target space. The first calculation unit calculates a metabolic rate equivalent amount of a person in the target space, based on the captured image acquired by the image acquisition unit. The ventilation control unit adjusts a ventilation volume of the target space by a ventilation device that ventilates the target space, based on the metabolic rate equivalent amount calculated by the first calculation unit. A ventilation system further includes the image capturing device and the ventilation device.

  • Publication number: 20210142051
    Abstract: An information management system includes a photographing unit, a data generation unit, a storage unit, and a management unit. The data generation unit extracts a person in a target space based on a characteristic of the person included in an image captured by the photographing device. The data generation unit generates person data associated with the person that has been extracted. The storage unit stores the person data generated by the data generation unit. The management unit manages information about the person existing in the target space based on the person data.

  • Publication number: 20210000999
    Abstract: An aroma diffusion system includes an aroma diffusion unit, an acquisition unit, an identification unit, and an aroma determination unit. The aroma diffusion unit has a plurality of patterns of aromas to be diffused, and diffuses an aroma corresponding to the pattern into a target space. The acquisition unit acquires person information relating to at least one of an activity and a mood of a person in the target space. The identification unit identifies at least one of the activity and the mood of the person in the target space, based on the person information acquired by the acquisition unit. The aroma determination unit determines the pattern of the aroma diffusion unit, based on a result of the identification by the identification unit.

  • Publication number: 20210000996
    Abstract: A spatial environment management system includes an acquisition unit, a determination unit, a device and a control unit. The acquisition unit acquires at least one of an image of a target space and a sound of the target space. The determination unit determines whether an odor emitting object is present in the target space, based on at least one of the image and the sound acquired by the acquisition unit. The device includes at least one of an airflow producing mechanism and a deodorizing mechanism. The control unit controls the device such that the device treats an odor when the determination unit determines that the odor emitting object is present in the target space.

  • Publication number: 20200333033
    Abstract: An estimation unit estimates a thermal sensation representing how hot or cold a user feels based on an image of the user taken by a camera. A control unit controls an air-conditioning operation of an air conditioner based on an estimation result of the estimation unit so that the thermal sensation falls within a target range, the air conditioner targeting a room in which the user is present. The image shows a motion and/or state of the user representing a hot or cold sensation of the user, and the estimation unit extracts the motion and/or state of the user from the image to estimate the thermal sensation.

  • Publication number: 20200240670
    Abstract: A camera (26) takes an image of at least one user (U1, U2, U3). A room environment information sensor (13) senses room environment information relating to an environment of a room (r1) in which the at least one user (U1, U2, U3) is present. The estimator (66) estimates a drowsiness condition of the at least one user (U1, U2, U3) based on the image of the at least one user (U1, U2, U3) taken by the camera (26) and the room environment information sensed by the room environment information sensor (13).
