Photographing apparatus, photographing module, and search system

Abstract

<P>PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide a technology capable of improving the convenience of searching not by manually detecting information required for the searching. <P>SOLUTION: When an imaging apparatus executes a flower information searching operation, the inclination of an optical axis is detected as a direction in which a flower comes out on the basis of an output of a gyro. Further, the features (number of flower petals and colors of the flower petals) of the flower are extracted from imaged image data. When the imaging apparatus transmits condition information such as the direction, the number of the flower petals, and the colors or the like to a searching server as searching keys, the searching server searches flower information in conformity with the condition information from a database, and sends a result of the searching back to the imaging apparatus. The imaging apparatus displays the result of the searching. <P>COPYRIGHT: (C)2007,JPO&INPIT
【課題】検索に必要な情報を人手によらずに検出し、検索の利便性を向上させる。 【解決手段】撮像装置にて花情報検索操作を行うと、ジャイロの出力に基づいて光軸の傾きが花の咲く方向として検出される。また、撮像された画像データからは花の特徴(花びらの枚数や色)が抽出される。これらの方向、枚数、色などを検索キーとして検索サーバに送ると、検索サーバがデータベースから条件に適った花情報を検索し、検索結果を撮像装置に送り返す。撮像装置では検索結果を表示する。 【選択図】図5
