  • Patent number: 10863229
    Abstract: A system and method for identifying a model of a television set is presented. The system may include a user interaction device including a first communication port configured to transmit operational codes to the television set via a control link, and a second communication port configured to detect audio signals from the television set via a feedback link. The user interaction device may be configured to transmit volume-down codes for television models to the television set to program a volume level of the television set to 0. The user interaction device may be configured to transmit a volume-up code for a first television model. The user interaction device may be configured to identify a model of the television set as the first television model if the user interaction device detects an audio signal on the feedback link following the transmission of the volume-up code for the first television model.

  • Patent number: 10780021
    Abstract: Cycloolefin polymer (COP) containers, including vials or syringes, having a scratch-resistant and anti-static coating on the external wall results in a reduction or prevention of static charge on the articles. The combination of an anti-scratch and anti-static coating results in the reduction of the attraction of charged particles to the container, leading to decreased particulate contamination while providing scratch resistance.

  • Patent number: 10773083
    Abstract: Systems and methods for detecting and displaying obstacles to visually impaired persons are disclosed. Images from a captured scene are analyzed to detect obstacles. A V-Disparity algorithm is employed to detect the ground plane and remove it from the images, thereby enhancing the capacity of retinal implants to display only obstacles. The system includes cameras to capture images; a processor with memory to detect obstacles in the captured images, to remove a ground plane, and to calculate a map of pixels representing the obstacles; and a retinal implant configured to receive the map of pixels and display the obstacles to a system user by electrically stimulating retinal nerves. The method includes synchronizing captured images and calculating a disparity map between the captured images to detect obstacles and remove a ground plane from processed images. A map of pixels representing the obstacle is transmitted to a retinal implant.
