  • Patent number: 11950321
    Abstract: The present invention discloses methods and systems for communicating at a cellular router between a first wireless communication module and a first subscriber identity module (SIM). The cellular router receives a first request from a first wireless communication module and encapsulates the first request in a first modified request. The cellular router then sends the first modified request to a first SIM card in a first communication apparatus and waits for a first modified reply. While waiting for the first modified reply the cellular router sends at least one halt message to the first wireless communication module after a first time threshold. After receiving the first modified reply, the cellular router decapsulates the first modified reply to retrieve a first reply and sends the first reply to the first wireless communication module where the first modified reply is a reply to the first modified request.

  • Patent number: 11928828
    Abstract: Disclosed is a computer-implemented method of determining a spatial relationship between planning image data and current surface data which leads to improved surface registration accuracy by considering the elasticity and deformability of the tissue. The knowledge about the tissue can be estimated based on type of tissue and atlas information. For the process of generating surface registration points on specific anatomical regions, e.g. the face or forehead, are acquired with a classical navigated pointer or laser pointer. It is also possible to acquire points with surface scanners. Confidence values defining a probability for certain parts of the surface registration points being deformed in comparison to a planning image are read from atlas data and used to compensate for the deformation in the registration between the surface registration points and the planning image in order to render the registration valid.
