  • Patent number: 10635844
    Abstract: Synthetic object detection data is generated for a modeled sensor, such as a camera. Scenario data specifying objects, such as vehicles, sensor intrinsics, such as focal length, principal point, and image size, and sensor extrinsics, such location and orientation in the scenario of the sensor, may be received. An object detector model may detect a given object in the scenario if it lies within the sensor's field of view, is large enough, and is not occluded. Two dimensional (2D) image plane position and velocity measurements may be generated. A measurement noise model may add noise to the measurements. Position, velocity, and measurement noise may be mapped into a three dimensional (3D) world coordinate system. An object detection list that includes time of detection, detected position and velocity, measurement accuracy, and an object classification for detected objects may be output.

A first image dataset of the datasets is defined by apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) values. A second image dataset of the MRI datasets is defined by at least one parameter other than the ADC values. The image fusion processor generates a fused response image that visually displays a combination of image features generated by the ADC values combined with image features generated by the at least one parameter other than the ADC values. The fused response image can illustratively include at least one of color-enhanced regions of interest and intensity-enhanced regions of interest.

  • Patent number: 10628702
    Abstract: A template image of a form document is processed to identify alignment regions used to match a query image to the template image and processing regions to identify areas from which information is to be extracted. Processing of the template image includes the identification of a set of meaningful template vectors. A query image is processed to determine meaningful query vectors. The meaningful template vectors are compared with the meaningful query vectors to determine whether the format of the template and query images match. Upon achievement of a match, a homography between the images is determined. In the event a homography threshold has been met, information is extracted from the query image.

  • Patent number: 10602027
    Abstract: For the mapping in a non-linear color space of source colors belonging to a same constant-hue leaf, instead of using a lightness mapping function based only on a cusp lightness condition stating that a source cusp color of this leaf should be mapped into a corresponding target cusp color of this leaf, it is proposed to build such a function also on other source cusp color(s) and other target cusp color(s) having hues different from that of said leaf. Preferably, the hue interval in which these other colors are considered is representative of the curvature of the non-linear color space at the position of colors of this constant-hue leaf.

  • Patent number: 10586326
    Abstract: Systems and methods for generating biomarkers associated with neuropsychiatric disorders, neurodevelopmental disorders, neurobehavioral disorders, or other neurological disorders are described. In general, the biomarkers are generated based on correlations between functional imaging data and clinical acquired from a subject, as computed using a multivariate classifier. Functional imaging data may include functional magnetic resonance images, or activation maps generated from such images. Clinical data generally includes data associated with a clinical or behavioral characterization of the subject. The biomarkers can be used to monitor or otherwise assess a treatment response; to provide diagnostic information, such as subtyping or classifying a disorder; to provide prognostic information, such as a prediction of treatment response or outcome; or to indicate functional or anatomical targets for treatments.

  • Patent number: 10552967
    Abstract: A method for using tracking tags to control mobile cameras to determine and capture desired perspective views of objects of interest (OOIs), includes locating each OOI and determining an orientation of each OOI. A second location of each mobile camera is determined with an orientation of each mobile camera; the method includes controlling, based upon the first and second location, and the orientations, the mobile camera to maintain desired perspective views of the OOIs despite movement of the OOIs. The method executes on a system for controlling a mobile camera including tracking tags configured with each OOI and tracking tags configured with the mobile cameras. A tracking apparatus having at least three receivers positioned around an operational area receives locate signals from the tracking tags to determining location data and a processor determines movement plans for the mobile cameras.

  • Patent number: 10527542
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method of calculating a Topography Adjusted Vegetation Index (TAVI) based on a band ratio model and a solar altitude angle. The method includes the following steps: obtaining the apparent reflectance data of a remote sensing image through image preprocessing, analyzing the quality of the image and numerical distribution, calculating a Shadow Vegetation Index (SVI), and constructing a TAVI combinational algorithm: TAVI = B ir B r + f ? ( ? ) ยท 1 B r , calculating an adjustment factor f(?) with the solar altitude angle, and finally obtaining anti-topographic effect TAVI vegetation information. The TAVI in the present invention is composed of two band ratio submodels RVI and SVI, the denominators of both of which are red band data of a remote sensing image, and the adjustment factor f(?), which is calculated by a solar altitude angle as a parameter with a sensor factor applied, has great physical significance.
