  • Patent number: 10748240
    Abstract: In tile-based graphics processing systems, a tiling unit determines which tiles of a rendering space a primitive is in, such that the primitives in a tile can be rendered. Rather than performing tiling calculations for each tile in a bounding box for a primitive, tiling tests can be performed for a subset of the tiles. Then the results of the tiling tests for the subset of tiles can be used to determine whether the primitive is in other tiles which are located within a region bounded by two or more of the tiles of the subset. In this way the tiling process can be implemented without performing tiling calculations for all of the tiles in the bounding box for a primitive. Reducing the number of tiling calculations can help to improve the efficiency of the graphics processing system (in terms of speed and power consumption) for rendering a primitive.

  • Patent number: 10739584
    Abstract: From sensor data received from a set of sensors affixed to augmented reality (AR) glasses, position information of the AR glasses relative to a focal point of a user's eyes is derived. From the position information, a readiness state of the AR glasses is derived, the readiness state being a member of a set of states, states in the set of states being indicative of the AR glasses' availability to present AR content. From application usage information, the AR content is determined to be available for display on the AR glasses. Responsive to the AR content being available and the readiness state of the AR glasses being in at least one state in the first subset of states, the AR content is displayed using the AR glasses.
