A'Lisa Marie Krawciw has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20200126260
    Abstract: A method that includes obtaining, using a processor, image data from a target coating. The method also includes performing, using the processor, an image analysis to determine at least one sparkle point from the image data, and performing, using the processor, a hue analysis to determine a sparkle color from the sparkle point. The method further includes calculating, using the processor, a sparkle color distribution, and generating, using the processor, a coating formulation that is the same or substantially similar in appearance to the target coating.

  • Patent number: 10565740
    Abstract: Using an image capturing device, multiple images can be obtained at different angles with respect to a surface of a target coating. In one computer-implemented embodiment, a method involves using a filtering technique to perform an image analysis on the obtained images to determine the presence of sparkle points within the images. A color attribute analysis can then be performed to determine various color attributes associated with the determined sparkle point. A sparkle color distribution can then be calculated in response to the color attribute analysis. A coating formulation can then be generated, in association with the calculated sparkle color distribution, which is the same or substantially similar to the target coating.
