The Ricoh Company, Ltd. is a Japanese multinational imaging and electronics company. It was founded by the RIKEN zaibatsu on 6 February 1936 as Riken Sensitized Paper . Ricoh's headquarters are located in Ricoh Building in Chūō, Tokyo.Ricoh produces electronic products, primarily cameras and office equipment such as printers, photocopiers, fax machines, offers Software as a Service document management solutions such as DocumentMall, document solutions such as GlobalScan, Print&Share and also offers Projectors. In the late 1990s through early 2000s, the company grew to become the largest copier manufacturer in the world. During this time, Ricoh acquired Savin, Gestetner, Lanier, Rex-Rotary, Monroe, Nashuatec, IKON and most recently IBM Printing Systems Division / Infoprint Solutions Company. Although the Monroe brand was discontinued, products continue to be marketed worldwide under the remaining brand names. In 2006, Ricoh acquired the European operations of Danka for $210 million. These operations continue as a stand alone business unit, under the Infotec brand. Wikipedia.

Patent
Ricoh Co. | Date: 2016-01-29

A system and method that calculates a yaw error in an image and provides a user interface to a user for correcting the yaw error. The method includes receiving an image, performing line detection in the image, computing a line parameterization for lines in the image, computing a yaw angle for the image and providing the yaw data calculated in the image.

A system and method that allows the capture of a series of images to create a single linear panoramic image is disclosed. The method includes capturing an image, dynamically comparing a previously captured image with a preview image on a display of a capture device until a predetermined overlap threshold is satisfied, generating a user interface to provide feedback on the display of the capture device to guide a movement of the capture device, and capturing the preview image with enough overlap with the previously captured image with little to no tilt for creating a linear panorama.

A method for product recognition from multiple images includes producing a plurality of recognition results for a plurality of input images, stitching the plurality of input images into a single stitched image; merging the plurality of recognition results using information from stitching the plurality of input images to generate a merged recognition result; and outputting the merged recognition result. The disclosure also includes systems for implementing the method.

A telemedicine system with intelligent triage that replaces a remote doctor with a virtual doctor in some cases is disclosed. The telemedicine system may include: a triage procedure that employs a local attendant and software to determine if the patient should be seen by a human doctor or can be satisfactorily served by the virtual doctor AI systemthe triage process is done at the start and throughout the consultation to ensure that the patient is handled appropriately, with several exit options for care to be provided by a human doctor if warranted; an AI system (e.g., an expert or knowledge-based system) comprising a knowledge-base, an inference engine, input module, output module, central/monitoring module, and learning module; and a remote control or operations center where the operation of the virtual doctors can be monitored by a set of human doctors who can choose to intervene if/when necessary.


Patent
Ricoh Co. | Date: 2016-05-25

The disclosure includes a system and method for classifying conditions of a data stream of object information. An image recognition receives an image and identifies a plurality of objects from the image. The image recognition application generates a data stream including information about the plurality of objects. The image recognition application generates a score based on the information about the plurality of products, determines a condition from the data stream based on the score, and generates a suggestion based on the condition. The image recognition application further provides the suggestion to a user.


Patent

Methods and systems for planogram matching are described. The methods include capturing an image, processing the image to identify a product based on a symbolic identifier, receiving a planogram, identifying a region of a planogram based on a linear grouping, determining a geometrically consistent match between the product and a sample product included in the region of the planogram, and determining an alignment between the region of the planogram and a corresponding region of the image that includes the product. The methods may further include determining a location in the corresponding region that does not include an expected product based on the planogram.


Patent
Ricoh Co. | Date: 2016-05-25

A system and method that generates a planogram is disclosed. The method includes receiving, from an image processing module, a realogram, the realogram including information about items recognized in an image, aligning the items in the realogram using the information about the items recognized in the image, relocating the items horizontally and vertically such that the items are distributed among a plurality of aligned, non-overlapping slots, and providing the relocated items for display as a planogram of the items.


Patent
Ricoh Co. | Date: 2016-05-25

The disclosure includes a system and method for comparing a realogram and a planogram to determine differences and generate suggestions, for example, a corrective action, and present the corrective action to a user. An application receives a realogram, the realogram including information about product recognitions, and a planogram corresponding to the realogram. The application aligns the realogram with the planogram using the information about product recognitions. The application retrieves a rule, detects an issue in the realogram based on applying the rule to the realogram aligned with the planogram, generates a corrective action corresponding to the issue in the realogram, and provides the corrective action for display as an overlay on the realogram.


Patent
Ricoh Co. | Date: 2016-05-25

The disclosure includes a system and method for aligning a realogram and a planogram. An alignment module of an image recognition application receives a realogram, the realogram including information about product recognitions, and a planogram corresponding to the realogram. The alignment module also generates a planogram brand chunk in the planogram, the planogram brand chunk grouping a plurality of planogram product facings belonging to a same brand, and a realogram brand chunk in the realogram based on the planogram brand chunk. The alignment module additionally identifies a planogram product facing in the planogram brand chunk and a realogram product facing in the realogram brand chunk and aligns the planogram product facing with the realogram product facing.
