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 light guide plate has a light guide plate member having a light incident surface on an end face of the light guide member, and a light emitting surface on a front surface of the light guide plate member, wherein the light incident surface is structured to have light incident thereon, and wherein the light emitting surface is structured to widen and emit light incident thereon out of the light guide plate member, and a directivity changing unit arranged on a light incident end portion of the light guide plate member on the front surface or a back surface of the light guide plate member. The directivity changing unit has a first inner inclined surface and a second inner inclined surface that change a directivity of the incident light within the directivity changing unit to widen the light laterally with respect to a direction perpendicular to the light incident surface.


To prevent actions other than gestures from being falsely recognized as gestures by a gesture recognition device that recognizes gestures performed by a user. A gesture recognition device that acquires a gesture performed by a user and generates a command corresponding to said gesture, includes: a gesture acquisition unit for acquiring a gesture performed by a user; a gaze tracking unit for acquiring the users movement of gaze; a gaze pattern determination unit for determining whether the movement of gaze satisfies a prescribed pattern; a gesture selection unit selecting a valid gesture acceptable as input when the movement of gaze satisfies a prescribed pattern; and a command generating unit for generating a command corresponding to the acquired gesture only if said acquired gesture is a valid gesture. Thus, the gesture recognition device that recognizes gestures performed by a user can prevent actions other than gestures from being falsely recognized as gestures.

A relay has a case, a relay body disposed in the case, a light source disposed in the case that emits light in accordance with an operation of the relay body, a light guide path which that receives, via a first end surface, the light emitted from the light source, and causes the light to exit outward from a second end surface, and a diffusion structure disposed in an optical path of the light which exits from the second end surface of the light guide path.


An image recognition device has a database in which pieces of feature data of a plurality of objects are registered while divided into classes for each of the plurality of objects; an identification unit that identifies an unknown object by evaluating which feature data of the class registered in the database is most similar to feature data obtained from an image of the unknown object, and a feature data registration unit that registers feature data in the database. The database is capable of setting a plurality of classes to an identical object. The feature data registration unit, in adding new feature data with respect to a first object already registered in the database, sets a new class other than an existing class with respect to the first object.

A sensor apparatus includes multiple pairs that each include a light emitting element and a light receiving element configured to receive light emitted from the light emitting element, and, in response to optical axes formed in a region between the light emitting elements and the light receiving elements entering a blocked state, senses a sensing target moving in the region. In an initial state, sensing is performed using a sensing optical axis composed of a portion of the optical axes, and when an optical axis of the sensing optical axis used in sensing in the initial state is blocked, the number of optical axes included in the sensing optical axis is increased so as to expand the sensing optical axis.
