    Abstract: A top-view image of a road is composed from at least two images taken by a vehicle-mounted camera. A speed and/or an acceleration of the vehicle is recorded, as well as at least two sequential images. A first image is selected for further processing. A first selected area of the first selected image is determined, located in a zone of the image with minimum distortion. A second image captured later is selected for further processing. A second area of the second image is selected in a zone of the image with minimum distortion and located such that image content shown at a lower border of the second area is adjacent to image content at an upper border of the first selected area. The first and second selected areas are transformed into a top-view perspective, and the transformed first and second selected areas stitched together for generating a composed top-view image.

  • Patent number: 10785453
    Abstract: A method for automatically authenticating unknown video data based on known video data stored at a client server is provided, wherein, unknown and known video data each are made up of segments and include metadata, a hash message digest, and a serial code. The method involves selecting a first segment of the unknown video and locating the serial code within the first segment of the unknown video data. The serial code is used to locate a corresponding first segment in the known video data. The first segment may include a known hash message digest. A new hash message digest for the first segment of the unknown video data is generated and compared with the known hash message digest. If they match, the segment of unknown video data is authentic.

  • Patent number: 10778939
    Abstract: An effects application receives a video of a face and detects a bounding box for each frame indicating the location and size of the face in each frame. In one or more reference frames. The application uses an algorithm to determine locations of facial features in the frame. The application then normalizes the feature locations relative to the bounding box and saves the normalized feature locations. In other frames (e.g., target frames), the application obtains the bounding box and then predicts the locations of the facial features based on the size and location of the bounding box and the normalized feature locations calculated in the reference frame. The predicted locations can be made available to an augmented reality function that overlays graphics in a video stream based on face tracking in order to apply a desired effect to the video.

  • Patent number: 10750207
    Abstract: Techniques, systems, and devices are disclosed for capturing and delivering real-time racing videos when a race car travels around a racetrack. The disclosed systems and techniques are designed to capture racing video signals both from the vantage point of the race car itself and using a set of cameras installed around the racetrack. The captured racing videos and racing metadata can be uploaded or streamed live to a server as the race car travels around a racetrack by connecting the race car to a nearby or the closest Wi-Fi hotspot to the race car within a set of Wi-Fi hotspot placed around the racetrack. The uploaded multiple channels of racing video signals can be combined with racing metadata collected from the race car to generate “meta-video” packages which can be automatically delivered in multiple formats.
