  • Patent number: 10846942
    Abstract: Free space machine interface and control can be facilitated by predictive entities useful in interpreting a control object's position and/or motion (including objects having one or more articulating members, i.e., humans and/or animals and/or machines). Predictive entities can be driven using motion information captured using image information or the equivalents.

  • Patent number: 10839235
    Abstract: In a light control system, a captured image of a cruising direction of a vehicle is acquired, and a light source is extracted from the captured image. A probability for estimating a light source to be a vehicle light source originating from a vehicle is calculated based on light source parameters for differentiating the light source. A dark section that is darker than the periphery and is present below the light source in the captured image is extracted. The probability is set to be higher for the light source of which the dark section is extracted. The light source having a probability that is a reference value set in advance or higher is estimated to be a light source of another vehicle. When the dark section that is detected as a shadow of a vehicle is detected, the probability of the light source being a vehicle light source is set to be high.

  • Patent number: 10819881
    Abstract: An image encryption/decryption system performs quantification and reconstruction of 2-D and 3-D layered and arbitrary grayscale or binary images in raster or vector format and supports their secure transmission between a Sender and a Receiver. Quantification parameters of the images include Indices of Intrinsic Anisotropy of size (IIAsize) and structure (IIAstr), which reflect the image anisotropy with high sensitivity. The IIASTR and IIASIZE are used as hash values in authentication of a transmitted image. The system assures that the same set of transects which was used by the Sender in the image encryption will be used only by an authorized Receiver for decryption of the image.

  • Patent number: 10794981
    Abstract: A magnetic resonance system is operated in a preliminary examination so as to acquire magnetic resonance data while an object undergoing investigation is in a first position relative to the scanner of the magnetic resonance system. Using the first magnetic resonance data, or image data derived therefrom, a processor reconstructs an image of the object. The image has a distortion in relation to the object. The processor presents the image to a person operating the system at a display device. The processor reconstructs the image such that the distortion is determined by a target position that is independent of the position of the object.

  • Patent number: 10789503
    Abstract: The method and system may be used to provide an indication of a color value for a particular siding sample and to color match a specific siding product to the color value of the siding sample. The system receives a digital image of a siding sample and a desired color value to be matched. A color query module plots this desired color value as a desired color point in a multidimensional color space together with a plurality of color reference points. Each color reference point represents the color value of an existing siding product. The system determines a “distance” between the desired color point and each plotted color reference point within the color space and identifies the siding product associated with the color reference point that is located the shortest distance to the desired color point within the color space.
