Abstract

An image forming apparatus automatically adjusts a printing distance from a sheet edge on the basis of a result obtained by reading, with a reader, a test sheet printed by an image former. The image former prints a solid cover sheet of a predetermined color other than white having a void portion on four sides. The test sheet is placed on OC glass having a first size guide and a second size guide on its periphery, in alignment with the origin of the first size guide and the second size guide. The reader reads the test sheet in a state in which the cover sheet is placed on the test sheet so that the void portion is disposed outside the first size guide and the second size guide.

Regarding a display device (a display device including display elements driven by currents) equipped with a touch panel, degradation in display quality caused by touch is suppressed. A display device equipped with a touch panel is provided with a determination circuit (303) that determines whether or not a characteristic detection process is influenced by touch, based on a touch position and a monitoring target row which is a row to be subjected to the characteristic detection process. When the determination circuit (303) determines that the characteristic detection process is influenced by touch, a display control circuit (301) controls operation of a gate driver (12) and a source driver (20) such that a normal characteristic detection process is stopped until the determination circuit (303) determines that the characteristic detection process is not influenced by touch.

The neural network post-filter characteristics message further includes a syntax element having a value specifying that particular syntax elements are not present in the neural network post-filter characteristics message. Based on the values of the syntax elements it may be determined that the neural network post-filter characteristics message provides a neural network update.

A developing device of an image forming apparatus includes a rotatable developer carrier, a layer regulating member, a storage, a developer tank, and a side part on which a first inclined surface is provided. The first inclined surface is inclined with respect to a horizontal plane such that a distance from the developer carrier increases as the first inclined surface approaches the storage from a side of the layer regulating member. A distance between the layer regulating member and the developer carrier is smaller than a shortest distance between the first inclined surface and the developer carrier. The image forming apparatus executes a loosening mode in which, after image formation is ended, the developer carrier is rotated in a direction opposite to a forward direction and then, rotated in the forward direction, when a predetermined condition is satisfied.

Abstract

A heating cooking apparatus includes a heating cooking chamber, a housing, a lid portion, a first circulation portion, a first blow-out port, and a guide portion. The heating cooking chamber further includes an opening. The housing accommodates the heating cooking chamber. The lid portion opens and closes the opening. The first circulation portion causes first air to circulate between an upper wall of the heating cooking chamber and an upper wall of the housing. When the lid portion opens the opening, the guide portion guides the first air blown out from the first blow-out port toward the opening.

Abstract

Terminal device attempts to initiate a COT-u after the channel is sensed to be idle and transmit a configured grant PUSCH. A start of a time domain resource of the configured grant PUSCH is aligned with the start of the FFP-u. In a case that the FFP-u does not overlap with an IP-g of an FFP-g, the COT-u is initiated and the configured grant PUSCH is transmitted.
