  • Patent number: 10445563
    Abstract: A method of monitoring the amount of time spent in a specified area by an individual comprises employing a first camera to automatically create one or more entrance images, each entrance image containing a face of an entering individual that passes a first location, and storing each entrance image in a database along with a corresponding entrance time that the entering individual passed the entrance location. An exit image is compared to the entrance images in the database to identify a matching entrance image containing the same face as the exit image. A stay time is then determined for the exiting individual by determining the difference between the entrance time corresponding to the matching entrance image and the exit time.

  • Patent number: 10438489
    Abstract: In an object detection apparatus, a first association unit associates, based on radar information and camera information, radar objects with at least one camera object that are estimated to be the same as each other. If camera objects are detected so that the camera information includes at least the detection point and the type of each of the camera objects, a determination unit determines whether the camera objects express a common object in accordance with the camera information. A second association unit defines, upon determination that the camera objects express the common object, the camera objects as a camera object group, and associates, if one of the camera objects constituting the camera object group is associated with a target radar object that is one of the radar objects, all the camera objects constituting the camera object group with the target radar object.

  • Patent number: 10432818
    Abstract: Sparse signal modulation schemes encode a data channel on a substrate in a manner that is robust, flexible to achieve perceptual quality constraints, and provides improved data capacity. The substrate is printed by any of a variety of means to apply the image, with sparse signal, to an object. After image capture of the object, a decoder processes the captured image to detect and extract data modulated into the sparse signal. The sparse signal may incorporate implicit or explicit synchronization components, which are either formed from the data signal or are complementary to it.

  • Patent number: 10416758
    Abstract: In an information processing apparatus, a posture data acquiring section acquires output values from a motion sensor of a head-mounted display. Effective rates of acceleration are then obtained by correcting the output values based on correction formulas. A posture is calculated in reference to the axes of the motion sensor based on the acquired rates of acceleration. Thereafter, the posture of the head-mounted display is calculated by performing rotation correction based on previously acquired angle errors, the calculated posture being output to an information processing section. A correction data updating section acquires posture information based on markers of the head-mounted display imaged in a captured image, and updates correction data for use in acquiring the posture from the sensor output values through comparison with the marker-based posture information.

  • Patent number: 10410347
    Abstract: (DSA) enables the vascular structure around a heart to be displayed using the injection of a contrast medium while the heart is being observed by an X-ray apparatus. The quality of a DSA sequence can be affected by the breathing of the patient, when under examination. This is because the images forming a DSA sequence are gathered using an X-ray modality, and therefore the independent movement of transparent tissues inside a patient causes motion artifacts to appear in DSA images. According to an aspect of the present invention, a method, device, X-ray system, computer program element, and a computer readable medium are provided which can correct artifacts appearing in DSA images which originate from to the motion of the heart and the motion caused by breathing in a patient.
