A communication unit prevents a malfunction which initiates communication against a users will when communication for the purpose of remote dialogue, without requiring a complex operation on the part of the user. This communication unit, used when a sender transmits his or her image or speech information to a recipient, comprises: a device that acquires image and speech information; a home server that transmits communication data indicating the information acquired by the information acquisition device to a device possessed by the recipient; and a detection unit that detects an object to be detected which is generated or changed by an action of the sender. The detection unit detects mutually different types of the objects each to be detected. Then, the home server starts transmitting the communication data when each detection result from each of two or more types of the detection units satisfies a predetermined condition.

A condition ascertainment unit accurately ascertains the condition of an opponent in a remote location while considering an opponents privacy. The condition ascertainment unit for ascertaining the condition of the opponent in a remote location includes a staging device configured to perform a staging operation different from the operation of reproducing a video image and voice of the opponent, and a control device configured to control the staging device to perform the staging operation and to communicate with an opponent side terminal. The control device obtains data on at least one of opponents position and state, atmosphere in the space where the opponent is present, voice emitted from the opponent, and vibration generated by action of the opponent; specifies, from the obtained data, contents on the above-described item; and causes the staging device to perform the staging operation in a staging mode corresponding to the specified contents.

TOKYO, June 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- GROUND Inc. on June 26, 2017 concluded a capital and business alliance contract with Daiwa House Industry Co., Ltd., a leader in the business of building homes and commercial facilities. Furthermore, on June 27, GROUND raised funds totaling 1 billion yen (9 million USD) by issuing new shares for allotment to Daiwa House. Purposes of the capital and business alliance According to population statistics for 2016 released by the National Institute of Population and Social Security Research, while the productive-age population is predicted to decrease by half over 50 years from 2010 to 2060, a labor shortage is becoming a pressing issue for the logistics industry as the number of parcels delivered has been increasing year by year due to the growth of the e-commerce market and other factors. Under these circumstances, GROUND plans to fully utilize of the latest capital and business alliance to jointly develop with the Daiwa House Group the next-generation "Intelligent Logistics Center (ILC)," which is a combination of the following: advanced logistics facilities developed by Daiwa House, the "Warehouse Management System" developed by Daiwa House Group firm Frameworx, Inc. (*1), the "Butler (R)" (*2) logistics robot provided by GROUND, and logistics resource optimization software called "Dynamic Allocation System (DyAS)" which uses artificial intelligence. By doing so, GROUND will significantly improve the productivity of logistics facilities. (*1) Frameworx, Inc. formed a capital and business alliance with GROUND in June 2016. (*2) Butler (R) was developed and produced by India's GreyOrange, and GROUND holds an exclusive distribution right for the product. - Overview of business activities: Engaged in creative projects  for "intelligent logistics" based on logistics technology - Established: April 2015 - Address: 2-7-4 Aomi, Koto-ku, Tokyo, Japan - Representative: President Hiratomo Miyata - Capital: 1 billion yen (as of June 27, 2017) - Website: http://www.groundinc.co.jp/en/ To view the original version on PR Newswire, visit:http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/ground-signs-capital-and-business-alliance-contract-with-daiwa-house-industry-raises-1-billion-yen-through-third-party-allotment-of-new-shares-300480025.html

Unintended gaps that occur around door sets and windows cause sound leakage and decrease sound insulation performance. In the Boundary Element Method (BEM) analysis, sound transmitted through a gap is expressed as the integral of the particle velocity. This means that the transmitted sound field can be expressed based on the particle velocity at the gap only. Hence, it is demonstrated here through numerical analysis that a decrease in sound insulation performance is caused by an increase in sound particle velocities in the vicinity of gaps in a rigid wall. We call this phenomenon the "gap effect". It is also shown that the movement of particles around the gaps can be suppressed by installing a thin sound-absorbing material such as thin or nonwoven fabric, reducing the sound leakage from the gaps. Furthermore, the sound insulation performance obtained by suppressing the particle velocities at the gaps is experimentally verified. The results of this study show that the improvement observed in the sound insulation performance following the installation of sound-absorbing layers into the gaps is quite significant and is suitable for practical use. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.

A system and method are provided to hold a dialogue between communicators while the communicators are viewing their images each other and which prevents the presence of an image display screen from being noticeable in a non-communication state. A first unit for the communicator generates and transmits first data indicating the image of the communicator. A second unit for the communication partner expands the first data received via a communication line to display the image of the communicator on the display screen, and generates and transmits second data indicating the image of the communication partner in front of the display screen. A human sensor is configured to detect that the communication partner is at a predetermined position in a home. Only during the period of the human sensor detecting that the communication partner is at the predetermined position, the display-cum-mirror forms a display screen, and otherwise, a mirror.
