  • Patent number: 11430187
    Abstract: Methods and systems for a virtual experience where a user moves physically to move his or her ‘agent’, a position in the virtual space that determines which virtual content the user may interact with. If the virtual space contains obstacles, and the user moves such that the agent would intersect with one, either (a) move the correlation vector between the virtual space and real space to counteract the user's physical movement, preventing the user from penetrating the obstacle, or (b) allow the user to proceed, but become separated from his or her agent. Also described are applying these methods if the real space is too small to fit the virtual space, if the agent has a speed limitation that the user violates, how to direct the agent when it is separated from the user, and how to handle three-dimensional obstacles, real-world obstacles, and multiple users.

  • Patent number: 11373341
    Abstract: A method for controlling a device, in particular a prosthetic hand or a robotic arm, includes using an operator-mounted camera to detect at least one marker positioned on or in relation to the device. Starting from the detection of the at least one marker, a predefined movement of the operator together with the camera is detected and is used to trigger a corresponding action of the device. The predefined movement of the operator is detected in the form of a line of sight by means of camera tracking. A system for controlling a device, in particular a prosthetic hand or a robotic arm, includes a pair of AR glasses adapted to detect the at least one marker and to detect the predefined movement of the operator.
