Omron Corporation is an electronics company based in Kyoto, Japan.Omron was established by Kazuma Tateisi in 1933 and incorporated in 1948. The company originated in an area of Kyoto called "Omuro ", from which the name "OMRON" was derived.Omron's primary business is the manufacture and sale of automation components, equipment and systems, but it is generally known for medical equipment such as digital thermometers, blood pressure monitors and nebulizers. Omron developed the world's first electronic ticket gate, which was named an IEEE Milestone in 2007, and was one of the first manufacturers of automated teller machines with magnetic stripe card readers.Omron Oilfield & Marine is a provider of AC and DC drive systems and custom control systems for oil and gas and related industries.Omron was named one of Thomson Reuters Top 100 Global Innovators in 2013.

A structure allows more efficient simulation using preliminary obtained image data for a target such as a workpiece. A simulator includes a creating unit that virtually creates a simulation target system in a three-dimensional virtual space, a measurement unit that performs image measurement of preliminary obtained image data using a visual sensor and outputs a measurement result, a reception unit that receives a setting of an imaging area defined for the visual sensor in a manner associated with the created system, a calculation unit that calculates a transform parameter based on a relative positional relationship between the created system and the set imaging area, and an execution unit that receives an input of a result obtained by transforming the measurement result generated by the measurement unit using the transform parameter, and executes a control operation in accordance with a control program associated with the system.

A simulator includes a measurement unit that performs image measurement of preliminarily obtained image data corresponding to processing performed using a visual sensor, an execution unit that executes a control operation for generating a control instruction directed to a processing device based on a measurement result obtained by the measurement unit and for generating a read instruction directed to the measurement unit for reading the image data, a storage unit that stores the image data read in response to the read instruction in a manner associated with information indicating a position or a displacement of a carrier serving as a reference for the image measurement performed in response to the read instruction, and a reproduction unit that reproduces a behavior of the created system based on time-series data for the control operation output from the execution unit and the information associated with the image data stored in the storage unit.


A user can cause a servo motor to perform desired operation without occurrence of overshoot and hunting while being unconscious of a maximum torque that can be output from the servo motor. A control device that implements model following control includes a feedforward controller that implements sliding mode control.

For a system to be simulated using preliminary obtained image data for a target such as a workpiece, the timing for image measurement of the image data is also to be simulated more precisely. A simulator includes a measurement unit that performs image measurement of preliminarily obtained image data corresponding to processing performed using a visual sensor, an execution unit that executes a control operation for generating a control instruction directed to a processing device based on a measurement result obtained by the measurement unit and for generating a read instruction directed to the measurement unit for reading the image data, a storage unit that stores the image data read in response to the read instruction in a manner associated with information indicating a position or a displacement of a carrier serving as a reference for the image measurement performed in response to the read instruction, and a reproduction unit that reproduces a behavior of the created system based on time-series data for the control operation output from the execution unit and the information associated with the image data stored in the storage unit.


A control device, by which a user causes a servo motor to perform desired operation without being conscious of a maximum torque of the servo motor while easily understanding the transmission characteristic, selects which one of sliding mode control and PID control is adopted to control a servo motor based on at least one of a position deviation and a velocity deviation.

Problem: The velocity and force of a target is controlled to have a predetermined relationship, independently of changes in the velocity at which the target is driven using a velocity command value and in an external force from the target. Solution: A controller controls a control target, driven to generate a predetermined viscous force as a reaction force, by periodically outputting a command value to the control target using a target value calculated from a command pattern for driving the control target and a feedback value from the control target relative to the target value. A correction operation unit obtains a control physical quantity different from the command value, calculates a correction command value based on a relationship between an error of the obtained control physical quantity from its target value and an error of the feedback value from the target value, and outputs the correction command value to the control target.

To improve light use efficiency and thereby achieve even higher sampling rates. An optical measurement device includes: a light source configured to emit illumination light including a plurality of wavelength components; an optical system configured to introduce an axial chromatic aberration into the illumination light from the light source and to receive reflection light reflecting from a measurement object where at least a portion of the measurement object lies along a line extending from the optical axis of the optical system; a spectrometer for separating the reflection light received at the optical system into wavelength components, and a detector including a plurality of light receiving elements arranged one-dimensionally to correspond to the dispersion direction of the spectrometer; and a light guide including a plurality of cores optically connecting the optical system and the light receiving unit; and a processor configured to compute the distance from the optical system to the measurement object.


Control that is less likely to cause an overshoot is performed when an actual inertia value is yet to be determined. A development support apparatus (10) sets a ratio of a position proportional gain to a velocity proportional gain to a value smaller than a ratio set when a servo driver (20) has determined an actual inertia value of a load machine (40).


A velocity profile is calculated to have a lower power peak or a lower torque peak and to allow a control target to reach a predetermined position within an intended time. An input reception unit (100) receives a designated drive time. A profiling unit (200) generates an input profile including a leading edge portion, a flat portion, and a trailing edge portion calculated based on the principle of least action.
