  • Publication number: 20200285038
    Abstract: An acquisition condition is decided for a second image of improved quality. Values x1 resulting from down sampling brightness values of an input first image are accepted by an input layer. A filter is scanned and a convolutional computation performed in a convolutional layer. Outputs z1 to z4 of the convolutional layer and a first image acquisition condition v=(v1, v2, v3, v4) of the first image are accepted by an output layer and a second acquisition condition y is computed by the output layer.

  • Patent number: 10725283
    Abstract: An optical sensor that detects intensity of light is disposed, inside an optical case, at a position that allows the optical sensor to receive light other than light received by a lens system, out of light emitted by an LED. The optical sensor is housed in a dedicated photometric case. The photometric case is provided with a light guide portion that includes a transmission part and a shielding part. The transmission part is disposed in an optical path of light that directly travels from the LED to the optical sensor and allows transmission of the light. The shielding part blocks indirect light that is reflected or scattered inside the optical case, from entering the optical sensor. Accordingly, it is possible to accurately detect only the light in the direct optical path from the LED.
