  • Patent number: 11948336
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure provide methods and apparatuses for point cloud compression and decompression. In some examples, an apparatus for point cloud compression/decompression includes processing circuitry. In some examples, the processing circuitry receives a bitstream carrying compressed data for a point cloud. The processing circuitry determines that a current node in an octree structure is eligible for an isolated mode. The octree structure corresponds to three dimensional (3D) partitions of a space of the point cloud. Then the processing circuitry determines, based on information of one or more other nodes, a single isolated point flag for the current node that indicates whether the current node is coded with a single isolated point.

  • Patent number: 11896144
    Abstract: A counting device bears a visually distinct pattern or marking, and is coupled to a pusher or other movable system of a shelf in a manner that causes the counting device to rotate in response to changes in position of the pusher. When items are placed on a shelf, or removed from the shelf, causing the pusher to move, the pattern on the counting device rotates at an angle defined by an extent of the movement of the pusher. Images captured of the counting device at various times may be processed to determine orientations of the pattern at such times. Where a change in an orientation of a pattern is detected, a number of items added to or removed from a shelf may be calculated based on the change in orientation and an event involving the number of items may be determined to have occurred.
