"Recognition Apparatus, Recognition Method, Storage Medium, Management System, and Conveyance System" in Patent Application Approval Process (USPTO 20170316241)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- A patent application by the inventors Katayama, Hiroshi (Kanagawa, JP); Kudo, Koichi (Kanagawa, JP); Okamoto, Toshihiro (Kanagawa, JP); Sadasue, Tamon (Kanagawa, JP); Oikawa, Ken (Kanagawa, JP); Bando, Hanako (Tokyo, JP); Maeda, Daisuke (Kanagawa, JP), filed on April 26, 2017, was made available online on November 9, 2017, according to news reporting originating from Washington, D.C., by NewsRx correspondents (see also Ricoh Company Ltd.).

This patent application is assigned to Ricoh Company Ltd.

The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "Technical Field

"This disclosure relates to a recognition apparatus, a recognition method, a storage medium, a management system, and a conveyance system.

"Background Art

"Two-dimensional codes such as QR code (registered trademark) using binary information have been used in many application fields. When a camera captures an image of a two-dimensional code, information such as identification (ID) can be acquired. To increase information amount stored in the two-dimensional codes, two-dimensional codes using a plurality of colors (two-dimensional color codes) that increase storing information amount per unit area have been used instead of monochrome binary information. The two-dimensional color codes are configured by encoding a plurality of colors with a specific arrangement pattern, and further by encoding a color transition between adjacent segments to enhance the distortion durability of two-dimensional color codes as disclosed in JP-2008-287414-A. However, the recognition processing speed of such two-dimensional codes tends to be relatively slow, as the recognition processing is hardly performed concurrently."

In addition to the background information obtained for this patent application, NewsRx journalists also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent application: "As one aspect of present disclosure, a recognition apparatus is devised. The recognition apparatus includes one or more processors, a memory configured to store a plurality of instructions which, when executed by the one or more processors, cause the one or more processors to extract an optically-readable symbol from an optically captured image including an image of the optically-readable symbol, the optically-readable symbol including a first cell line having a plurality of first cells, and one or more second cell lines each having one or more second cells, each of the one or more second cell lines connected to respective ones of the plurality of first cells of the first cell line, recognize first information expressed by the first cell line included in the extracted optically-readable symbol, recognize second information expressed by the one or more second cell lines included in the extracted optically-readable symbol, and acquire identification information included in the optically-readable symbol based at least in part on the recognized first information and the recognized second information.

"As another aspect of present disclosure, a method of recognizing optically-readable information is devised. The method includes extracting an optically-readable symbol from an optically captured image including an image of the optically-readable symbol, the optically-readable symbol including a first cell line having a plurality of first cells, and one or more second cell lines each having one or more second cells, each of the one or more second cell lines connected to respective ones of the plurality of first cells of the first cell line, recognizing first information expressed by the first cell line included in the extracted optically-readable symbol, recognizing second information expressed by the one or more second cell lines included in the extracted optically-readable symbol, and acquiring identification information included in the optically-readable symbol based at least in part on the recognized first information and the recognized second information.

"As another aspect of present disclosure, a non-transitory storage medium storing a program that, when executed by a computer, causes the computer to execute a method of recognizing optically-readable information is devised. The method includes extracting an optically-readable symbol from an optically captured image including an image of the optically-readable symbol, the optically-readable symbol including a first cell line having a plurality of first cells, and one or more second cell lines each having one or more second cells, each of the one or more second cell lines connected to respective ones of the plurality of first cells of the first cell line, recognizing first information expressed by the first cell line included in the extracted optically-readable symbol, recognizing second information expressed by the one or more second cell lines included in the extracted optically-readable symbol, and acquiring identification information included in the optically-readable symbol based at least in part on the recognized first information and the recognized second information."
