  • Patent number: 11380121
    Abstract: Recent progress of neural networks has shown significant progress over human pose estimation tasks. Pose estimation could be categorized into monocular 2D pose estimation, multi-view 3D pose estimation, and single view 3D pose estimation, where recently 3D pose is getting more attention to be applied to AR/VR, game and human computer interaction applications. However, current academic benchmarks on human 3D pose estimation only respect performance on their relative pose. The root positioning over the time, in another word, the “trajectory” of the whole body in 3D space is not considered well enough. Applications such as motion capture, not only require precise relative pose of the body but also the root position of the whole body in 3D space. Therefore, an efficient monocular full 3D pose recovery model from 2D pose input is described herein, which is able to be applied to the above applications.

  • Patent number: 11276181
    Abstract: Systems and methods designed to detect a human being falling as opposed to an inanimate object. Generally, the systems and methods will utilize a depth camera, which will often image in the NIR spectrum to detect a falling object. The portion detected as a falling object will often be detected as separating from a point cloud indicative of one object in contact with another. Should such a separation be detected, the systems and methods will utilize a thermal sensor, often a camera imaging in the LWIR spectrum, to determine if the falling portion has a heat signature indicative of a human being.

  • Patent number: 11210565
    Abstract: Representative embodiments disclose machine learning classifiers used in scenarios such as speech recognition, image captioning, machine translation, or other sequence-to-sequence embodiments. The machine learning classifiers have a plurality of time layers, each layer having a time processing block and a depth processing block. The time processing block is a recurrent neural network such as a Long Short Term Memory (LSTM) network. The depth processing blocks can be an LSTM network, a gated Deep Neural Network (DNN) or a maxout DNN. The depth processing blocks account for the hidden states of each time layer and uses summarized layer information for final input signal feature classification. An attention layer can also be used between the top depth processing block and the output layer.

  • Patent number: 11200447
    Abstract: Disclosures herein teach applying a set of sections spanning a down-sampled version of an image of a road-scene to a low-fidelity classifier to determine a set of candidate sections for depicting one or more objects in a set of classes. The set of candidate sections of the down-sampled version may be mapped to a set of potential sectors in a high-fidelity version of the image. A high-fidelity classifier may be used to vet the set of potential sectors, determining the presence of one or more objects from the set of classes. The low-fidelity classifier may include a first Convolution Neural Network (CNN) trained on a first training set of down-sampled versions of cropped images of objects in the set of classes. Similarly, the high-fidelity classifier may include a second CNN trained on a second training set of high-fidelity versions of cropped images of objects in the set of classes.

  • Patent number: 11188776
    Abstract: Systems, methods, devices and computer readable media for determining a geographical location of a license plate are described herein. A first image of a license plate is acquired by a first image acquisition device of a camera unit and a second image of the license plate is acquired by a second image acquisition device of the camera unit. A three-dimensional position of the license plate relative to the camera unit is determined based on stereoscopic image processing of the first image and the second image. A geographical location of the camera unit is obtained. A geographical location of the license plate is determined from the three-dimensional position of the license plate relative to the camera unit and the geographical location of the camera unit. Other systems, methods, devices and computer readable media for detecting a license plate and identifying a license plate are described herein.
