  • Patent number: 11308625
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a novel method and system for crater detection in planetary data based on marked point processes (MPP), effective for various object detection tasks in Earth observation, and for planetary image registration. The resulting spatial features are exploited for registration, together with fitness functions based on the MPP energy, on the mean directed Hausdorff distance, and on the mutual information. Two different methods—one based on birth-death processes and region-of-interest analysis, and the other based on graph cuts and decimated wavelets—are included within the present framework. Experimental results confirmed the effectiveness of the present invention in terms of crater detection performance and sub-pixel registration accuracy.

  • Patent number: 11308312
    Abstract: The present teaching relates to method, system, medium, and implementations for understanding a three dimensional (3D) scene. Image data acquired by a camera at different time instances with respect to the 3D scene are received wherein the 3D scene includes a user or one or more objects. The face of the user is detected and tracked at different time instances. With respect to some of the time instances, a 2D user profile representing a region in the image data occupied by the user is generated based on a corresponding face detected and a corresponding 3D space in the 3D scene is estimated based on calibration parameters associated with the camera. Such estimated 3D space occupied by the user in the 3D scene is used to dynamically update a 3D space occupancy record of the 3D scene.

  • Patent number: 11218959
    Abstract: Within many applications impulse radio based ultra-wideband (IR-UWB) transmission offers significant benefits for very short range high data rate communications when compared with existing standards and protocols. In many of these applications the main design goals are very low power consumption and very low complexity design for easy integration and cost reduction. Digitally programmable IR-UWB transmitters using an on-off keying modulation scheme on a 0.13 microns CMOS process operating on 1.2 V supply and yielding power consumption as low as 0.9 mW at a 10 Mbps data rate with dynamic power control are enabled. The IR-UWB transmitters support new frequency hopping techniques providing more efficient spectrum usage and dynamic allocation of the spectrum when transmitting in highly congested frequency bands. Biphasic scrambling is also introduced for spectral line reduction.
