  • Patent number: 10489925
    Abstract: Various embodiments can measure a distance of an object. For achieving this, a first light source and a second light source can be configured to emit first light and a second light toward the object to illuminate the object. The emission of the first light and second light can be configured such that the two lights converge at a first point and diverge at a second point. An optical sensor can be used to capture a first image of the object illuminated by the first light, and capture a second image of the object illuminated by the second light. An image difference between the first image and the second image of the object can be determined. The distance of the object with respect to the first point can then be determined based on the image difference and a distance difference between the first point and the second point.

  • Patent number: 10334119
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are described for transparently processing a fax transmission by a fax software program in a mobile device. In one embodiment, the fax software program identifies an incoming call at the mobile device. Upon the identification, the program prevents a display screen of the mobile device from outputting an incoming call ringing alert. The program answers the incoming call and analyzes the call to detect whether the answered call is a voice call. Upon detecting that the answered incoming call is a voice call, the program outputs the incoming call ringing alert via the display screen. Otherwise, if the answered incoming call is a fax transmission, the program merges the call with a fax server, such that the fax server receives the fax transmission. Other embodiments are also described and claimed.
