  • Patent number: 7970276
    Abstract: There is provided a frame structure for stereoscopic imaging. First and second cameras may be mounted to the structure to respectively record first and second images which may be combined to produce a three-dimensional image. The frame structure comprises a casing sized and shaped to receive a beam splitting device therein and first and second camera supports mounted to a sidewall of the casing for respectively holding the first and second cameras. Each camera support comprises an outer frame defining an internal cavity to receive a corresponding camera therein, and attaching means which comprise at least three connecting portions contacting the casing sidewall and positioned around an opening of the casing sidewall. This configuration substantially prevents deformation of the frame structure due to bending.

  • Patent number: 7892437
    Abstract: A method of managing water is provided, in which the water is discharged from an aggregate plant, and therefore contains a large number of fines. The water is first passed through a mesh screen to remove large particles and then collected in a sump. From the sump the water is pumped to a centrifugal cyclone, where some of the fines are separated from the water. Flocculent is then applied to the water, before the water is collected in a pond.

  • Patent number: 7860167
    Abstract: An efficient and non-iterative 3D post processing method and system is proposed for mosquito noise reduction, block localization and correction in DCT block-based decoded images. The 3D post processing is based on a simple classification that segments a picture in multiple regions such as Edge, Near Edge, Flat, Near Flat and Texture regions. The proposed technique comprises also an efficient and shape adaptive local power estimation for equivalent additive noise and provides simple noise power weighting for each above cited region. Temporal filtering configurations using Minimum Noise Variance Criterion are proposed for reducing temporally varying coding artifacts. A Minimum Mean Square Error or Minimum Mean Square Error-like noise reduction with robust and effective shape adaptive windowing is utilized for smoothing mosquito and/or random noise for the whole image, particularly for Edge regions.

  • Patent number: 7736000
    Abstract: An eye tracking apparatus includes a first image detector for capturing scene images, a second image detector fixed relative to the first image detector for capturing eye images including a pupil of a person and a reference object located within an image detection field, a processor for receiving the scene images and the eye images and outputting eye tracking images, each of the eye tracking images including a gaze point corresponding to a line of sight of the person, the processor for determining a location of the gaze point based on a calibration mapping that maps pupil location within the image detection field to the scene images and a correction mapping that corrects for movement of the reference object within the image detection field of the second image detector. Wherein the first image detector and the second image detector are coupled to a wearable accessory and movement of the reference object within the image detection field corresponds to movement of the wearable accessory relative to the person.
