  • Patent number: 10816927
    Abstract: A transport device includes a first rotary part that rotates; a second rotary part that contacts the first rotary part, that forms a pinch region where an object to be transported is pinched between the second rotary part and the first rotary part, and that rotates together with the first rotary part; and a positioning mechanism that positions the second rotary part with respect to the first rotary part. The positioning mechanism includes a swing part that supports one end portion side of the second rotary part, that is supported at one end portion side of the first rotary part, and that is swingable around a rotation center of the first rotary part; and a fixing section that fixes the swing part.

  • Publication number: 20200231287
    Abstract: An air-conditioning duct structure of an aircraft includes an air-conditioning duct that is provided on each of a starboard side and a port side and guides conditioned air to a vicinity of a ceiling of a cabin in the aircraft. The air-conditioning duct includes a blowout portion and a blowout upstream portion. The blowout portion blows out the conditioned air to the cabin from an outboard side of the ceiling to an inboard side of the ceiling and toward a lower part than the ceiling, and the blowout upstream portion communicates with an upstream side of the blowout portion. In addition, the blowout portion or the blowout upstream portion is curved to cause a terminal end side of the blowout portion to be inclined downward with respect to a horizontal direction.

  • Patent number: 10569985
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes: an apparatus body including an image former that forms an image on a recording material; a covering part that is provided in the apparatus body and leaves an inside of the apparatus body open by being opened in an opening direction with respect to the apparatus body; a reversing unit that is housed by the apparatus body and discharges part of the recording material on which the image is formed by the image former externally of the apparatus body, and reverses a transport direction of the recording material; and a guiding unit that is provided adjacent to a downstream side of the covering part in the opening direction, guides the recording material discharged through the apparatus body by the reversing unit, and when the covering part is opened with respect to the apparatus body, the guiding unit moves relatively with respect to the covering part in an opposite direction of the opening direction.

  • Patent number: 10310595
    Abstract: Provided is an image display device configured to display a free viewpoint image that tracks a movement of observer's head and trunk. The line-of-sight direction and trunk orientation of the user are individually oriented in a free viewpoint space displayed on a display device 500 based on posture information of the user's head and trunk, which are respectively obtained from a head motion tracking device 200 and a trunk motion tracking device 300. A behavior that is natural in real space can be represented by moving a line of sight to a front direction of the trunk on a space in a state where the line of sight does not match the front direction of the trunk. An unnatural UI that goes straight to the line-of-sight direction is prevented regardless of orientation of the trunk.

  • Patent number: 9469203
    Abstract: Battery information output equipment allows a driver of an electric vehicle 10 of an electricity consumer 2, now parked, to input what battery capacity is required at two or more points of time on or before the time at which the electric vehicle is scheduled to come into use, considering an operation schedule for the vehicle, and transmits the usable capacity at each point of the times, i.e., maximum capacity minus capacity required at each point of the times, to a power supply/demand management center 3, so that charge and discharge of a battery 17 is controlled by a charge/discharge command from the power supply/demand management center 3 such that use of battery capacity for power supply and demand leveling is kept within the usable capacity at any point of the times.
