  • Publication number: 20210094629
    Abstract: A latch system for a vehicle includes a synchronizer and a lock unit.

  • Patent number: 10534816
    Abstract: A system links data objects associated with a common entity and includes at least one processor. The system compares data objects within one or more source systems to identify candidate data objects associated with a corresponding common entity based on information within those data objects. The candidate data objects are analyzed based on supplemental temporal information within the one or more source systems pertaining to the candidate data objects to determine resulting data objects associated with the corresponding common entity. The resulting data objects are linked to form a set of data objects for the common entity. Embodiments of the present invention further include a method and computer program product for linking data objects associated with a common entity.

  • Publication number: 20070230754
    Abstract: Fingerprint recognition and matching systems and methods are described that utilize features at all three fingerprint friction ridge detail levels, i.e., Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3, extracted from 1000 ppi fingerprint scans. Level 3 features, including but not limited to pore and ridge contour characteristics, were automatically extracted using various filters (e.g., Gabor filters, edge detector filters, and/or the like) and transforms (e.g., wavelet transforms) and were locally matched using various algorithms (e.g., the iterative closest point (ICP) algorithm). Because Level 3 features carry significant discriminatory and complementary information, there was a relative reduction of 20% in the equal error rate (EER) of the matching system when Level 3 features were employed in combination with Level 1 and Level 2 features, which were also automatically extracted. This significant performance gain was consistently observed across various quality fingerprint images.

  • Publication number: 20040047537
    Abstract: A substantially planar fan-out circuit that receives a set of signals at one end and conducts the signals via a set of waveguides to an opposite end of the circuit. The intensity of at least one of the optical signals is detected with an optical detector integrated into the optical circuit. The detected optical signal is attenuated with a variable optical attenuator integrated into the optical circuit. The variable optical attenuator effects an attenuation level based upon an output of the optical detector. The optical signals are delivered from the second end of the optical circuit, so that the optical signals are either more or less dispersed at the second end of the optical circuit than at the first end.

  • Patent number: 6647209
    Abstract: An optical multiplexer and demultiplexer for dense wavelength division multiplexed (“DWDM”) fiber optic communication systems is disclosed. As a multiplexer, the device functions to spatially combine the optical signals from several laser sources (each of which is a different wavelength) and launch the spatially combined laser beams into a single optical fiber. As a demultiplexer, the device functions to spatially separate the different wavelengths of a wavelength division multiplexed optical link and launch each of the different wavelengths into a different optical fiber. In either embodiment, the device includes both bulk optic and integrated optic components. The spatial separation or spatial combination of laser beams of different wavelength is achieved with the use of bulk diffraction gratings.

  • Publication number: 20030150998
    Abstract: An ultraviolet radiation monitor is disclosed. The monitor includes an aluminum gallium nitride-based detector, such as a Schottky junction fabricated with aluminum gallium nitride and a Schottky layer containing palladium, and a processor. The composition of the detector is tailored so that the detector is responsive substantially only to radiation of certain wavelengths, such as UV-B. The processor is adapted to receive user input of the user's skin type and ultraviolet-blocking power of any sunscreen the user is wearing. The processor is also adapted to read the signal generated by the detector and calculate the intensity of the ultraviolet radiation received by the detector. The processor is further adapted to calculate the maximum length ultraviolet exposure time for the user, based on the radiation intensity, skin type and sunscreen information.

  • Patent number: 6487306
    Abstract: The invention is a system and method for deriving a single dimensional representation for a set of points e.g.,minutiae, in image of a two dimensional pattern of lines, e.g. a fingerprint, by creating a one dimensional (string) representation of one or more points (e.g., minutiae) and the respective attributes of each point therein. A landmark point is selected from the two dimensional image, preferably from the set of the points to be represented in single dimension. The relationships of each of the points with reference to the landmark determines a linear order for the points and the attributes associated with each point.

  • Patent number: 6289112
    Abstract: A reliable estimate of image pixel (fingerprint ridge) orientations, and block orientations for a given block is determined by finding an optimal block size in an area of an image, e.g., a fingerprint image. An initial block size is chosen. Then a block direction is determined, e.g., by analyzing intensity gradients in two directions, preferably two orthogonal directions, at a plurality (preferably all) of the pixels locations in the block. Block directions of blocks in a given area of the images (fingerprint) are compared. If the compared directions are within a tolerance of one another, the determined direction of the block is considered correct. However, if the compared directions are not within a tolerance of one another, the block size is changed and the process is repeated.

  • Patent number: 6263091
    Abstract: Disclosed in a system and method for segmenting foreground pixel from background pixels in a digital image, specifically a fingerprint image. First the image is divided into blocks of optimal size. Then, for a given block, an overall gradient magnitude and a projected gradient magnitude is determined. The overall gradient magnitude is a measure of the amount of intensity variation in the current block. If a large number (or all) of the pixels have a direction that is the same as the overall gradient direction, the projected gradient magnitude will be nearly equal (will be equal) to the overall gradient magnitude. This indicates that the current block is a block in the foreground of the image. A relationship, e.g., a ratio, of the over gradient magnitude to the overall projected gradient magnitude is taken certainty level that the current block is in the foreground or background of the image.

  • Patent number: 6185318
    Abstract: The invention is a system and method for matching a two dimensional pattern of lines, e.g. a fingerprint, by creating a one dimensional representation of one or more points (e.g., minutiae) on the lines in the patterns to be matched. The one dimensional representations are created by finding a corresponding reference point (minutiae) in each of the patterns and creating an index of other points in each of the respective patterns with respect to the reference point (minutiae). The indexes are adaptively compared taking into account the elastic distortions of the lines.

  • Patent number: 6049621

  • Patent number: 5987544
    Abstract: A computer system includes a plurality of processor modules coupled to a system bus with each of said processor modules including a processor interfaced to the system bus. The processor module has a backup cache memory and tag store. An index bus is coupled between the processor and the backup cache and backup cache tag store with said bus carrying only an index portion of a memory address to said backup cache and said tag store. A duplicate tag store is coupled to an interface with the duplicate tag memory including means for storing duplicate tag addresses and duplicate tag valid, shared and dirty bits. The duplicate tag store and the separate index bus provide higher performance from the processor by minimizing external interrupts to the processor to check on cache status and also allows other processors access to the processor's duplicate tag while the processor is processing other transactions.
