Abstract

A contactless power transmission apparatus includes a receiver that includes a resonant circuit that receives electric power from a transmitter. The receiver causes, in response to a measurement value of an output voltage of electric power output from the resonant circuit being out of a predetermined allowable range of voltages, a short circuit to short-circuit the resonant circuit and transmits determination information indicating that the contactless power transmission apparatus is not outputting a constant voltage. In response to the determination information, the transmitter in the contactless power transmission apparatus detects a switching frequency of alternating current power to be supplied to a transmitter coil from a power supply circuit at which the contactless power transmission apparatus outputs a constant voltage in accordance with a measurement value of a current through the transmitter coil.

Abstract

A control device estimates a position and pose of an imaging device relative to a robot based on an image of the robot captured by the imaging device. A simulation device arranges a robot model at a teaching point, and generates a simulation image of the robot model captured by a virtual camera that is arranged so that a position and pose of the virtual camera relative to the robot model in the virtual space coincide with the estimated position and pose of the imaging device. The control device determines an amount of correction of a position and pose of the robot for the teaching point so that the position and pose of the robot on the actual image captured after the robot has been driven according to a movement command to the teaching point approximate to the position and pose of the robot model on the simulation image.

Abstract

A switch has a base, an operation unit disposed on the base and moving in a contacting-separating direction with respect to the base in response to an external force, and a link member configured to guide movement of the operation unit in the contacting-separating direction and support the operation unit on the base. The base includes a base-side latching portion. The operation unit includes an operation-unit-side latching portion configured to be latched to base-side latching portion at an end of an allowable movement range for the operation unit in a separating direction in which the operation unit is separated from the base. The base-side latching portion and the operation-unit-side latching portion are latched to each other to inhibit the operation unit from moving in the separating direction beyond the separating-direction end of the allowable movement range.

Abstract

A health management support device according to an aspect of the present invention is capable of providing appropriate support information to a user for whom health state improvement is desired, without relying on the user's own behavior log information. A health information database (21) stores medical examination information and lifestyle information for each user. Further, a lifestyle score is calculated for each of the users on the basis of the lifestyle information and stored in the health information database (21). Then, from among the users described above, a user to whom a classification of the medical examination information is “monitoring required” is selected as a supported user, and a goal user who is to serve as an example of health state improvement for the supported user is selected on the basis of attribute information, the medical examination information, and the lifestyle score stored in the health information database (21). Then, health management support information is generated on the basis of the lifestyle information of this selected goal user and transmitted to a terminal of the supported user.

Abstract

Provided is an interpolation technique in which command values chronologically input can be interpolated without increasing a jerk and with less follow-up delay with respect to a command. A control unit (10) of a servo driver (20) has a function of sequentially generating, on the basis of four command values from x(k−2) to x(k+1), a kth interpolation function for calculating command values in a kth (≥3) time interval and a function of generating, as the kth interpolation function, a fifth-order equation with respect to time in which function values at a start time and an end time of the kth time interval match x(k) and x(k+1), respectively, and in which a second derivative value at a start time of the kth time interval matches a second derivative value at an end time of a (k−1)th time interval corresponding to a (k−1)th interpolation function.

Abstract

The power conditioner includes: a reactor; a capacitor; a first switching circuit that alternately switches, at a first frequency, between a first state where the DC current supplied from the DC power source is supplied to the reactor and supply of the DC current to the capacitor is shut off and a second state where an electric current is supplied to the capacitor from the reactor in which energy is accumulated by the supply of the DC current and the electric current from the DC power source to the reactor is shut off; and a second switching circuit that alternately switches, at a second frequency, between a first direction in which an electric current supplied from the capacitor flows toward a second output terminal through a first output terminal and a second direction in which the electric current flows toward the first output terminal through the second output terminal.
