  • Publication number: 20210044834
    Abstract: A decoder includes circuitry and memory coupled to the circuitry. The circuitry, in operation, generates a first coefficient value by applying a CCALF (cross component adaptive loop filtering) process to a first reconstructed image sample of a luma component, and clips the first coefficient value. The circuitry generates a second coefficient value by applying an ALF (adaptive loop filtering) process to a second reconstructed image sample of a chroma component, and clips the second coefficient value. The circuitry generates a third coefficient value by adding the clipped first coefficient value to the clipped second coefficient value, and decodes a third reconstructed image sample of the chroma component using the third coefficient value.

    Abstract: When one of the objects placed on a placement board is sucked and held by a suction nozzle and is taken out by an actuator under the control of an operation controller, a first acquirer acquires a difference ?M between a first moment M1 applied to the suction nozzle and a second moment M2 applied to the suction nozzle when the object is taken out by the suction nozzle by a first taking-out movement distance. The operation controller performs control, based on the acquired difference between the moments, whether the taking-out operation is to be further continued.
