  • Patent number: 12001974
    Abstract: Described augmented reality (AR) systems and devices provide users with enhanced human sensorial perceptions using digital content. More particularly, the system software platform and methodology of smartglasses create an immersive AR experience for visitors of cultural sites using object identification and optical flow tracking. Using graphical user interfaces, the system enables platform administrators to convert disparate cultural site content to coherent AR story-telling experiences called palimpsests or tours. During a learning phase, points of interest are catalogued and images are taken at different angles and under different lighting conditions to create markers. Using geolocation systems, data is loaded on the smartglasses a roomful at a time to increase efficiency. In use, AR content is generated after points of interest markers are matched using similarity and threshold algorithms. Optical flow tracking is used to track user movement and enhance the AR experience.

  • Patent number: 11893064
    Abstract: Different logical partitions representing parts of a distributed file system global namespace are hosted on some cluster nodes, e.g., metadata nodes. File content and shadow logical partitions corresponding to the different logical partitions are hosted on other nodes, e.g., data nodes. Each file is associated with a metadata and data node. TCP links are established between nodes. Upon opening files, a file manager server session is generated between each pair of nodes associated with the open files to track open states and is recorded in a mapping table. The mapping table identifies each open file and associated nodes. When a metadata or data node of a particular pair of nodes associated with an open file becomes unavailable, the mapping table is consulted to identify another of the metadata or data node associated with the open file. Crash recovery protocols are performed on the other of the metadata or data node.
