  • Patent number: 11176561
    Abstract: This invention relates to methods for checking the authenticity of goods or services, in which a life cycle is divided into stages, a new unique tracking code is generated, and each such tracking code is associated with information in an integrated database of all of the goods and services. According to the invention, a list of user access parameters is generated, and the integrated database is divided into areas corresponding to different user access parameters, to each of which users having defined access rights have access. For each user, a user identification code corresponding to said user's access parameter is generated. For transfer of data into the integrated database, the user identification code is checked. In the event of correspondence, the user is allowed access. The technical result which is achieved is that of providing the possibility of limiting access to an integrated database of all of the goods and services for users having various access rights.

  • Patent number: 11138397
    Abstract: Embodiments related to local tone mapping for symbol reading. A local pixel neighborhood metric is determined for at least one raw pixel in a region-of-interest, which identifies on one or more raw pixels near the at least one raw pixel. A local mapping function is determined for the at least one raw pixel that maps the value of the raw pixel to a mapped pixel value with a mapped bit depth that is smaller than the bit depth associated with the raw image. The local mapping function is based on a value of at least one other raw pixel near the at least one raw pixel within the local pixel neighborhood metric, and at least one parameter determined based on the raw image. A mapped image is computed for the region-of-interest by applying the local mapping function to the raw image.
