  • Publication number: 20210232463
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for implementing enhanced security measures that include utilizing a backup database included on node devices connected to a CAN bus, so that certain message identifiers are updated according to a matching table stored on the backup database. By updating the message identifiers, outside attackers will not be privy to the new message identifier assigned to the messages and will no longer target such messages.

  • Patent number: 11064108
    Abstract: A media processing apparatus and method for frame rate control based on rendered objects. The media processing apparatus receives a first plurality of image frames which may include a first plurality of objects from a first image capturing device. The media processing apparatus receives a first user input corresponding to a first object from a first media rendering device. The media processing apparatus determines a first speed of movement of the first object based on an analysis of a first set of consecutive image frames from the first plurality of image frames and calculates a first frame rate based on the determined first speed of movement of the first object. The first image capturing device captures a second plurality of image frames at the first frame rate. The media processing apparatus transmits the captured second plurality of image frames to the first media rendering device.

  • Patent number: 10917571
    Abstract: An image processing device is disclosed. The image processing device controls an image capture device to capture at least first image that comprises one or more objects. The image processing device identifies at least a first object in the first image. The image processing device determines a first blur value of identified first object and determines the identified first object as a blur object based on the first blur value. The image processing device adjusts a focal point of the image capture device to focus on the blurred first object. The image processing device controls the image capture device to capture a second image of the first object based on adjusted focal point. The image processing device replaces the first object in first image with the first object in the second image to generate an output image and further controls the display screen to display well-focused output image.

  • Publication number: 20200106826
    Abstract: A method for controlling controller area network (CAN) communication in a vehicle including a plurality of electronic control units (ECUs) and a plurality of CAN databases accessible by the plurality of ECUs can include: storing CAN message information in the plurality of CAN databases such that each CAN database stores a unique configuration of the CAN message information; establishing a plurality of periodic intervals; and when a subsequent interval among the plurality of periodic intervals begins: receiving a plurality of measurement values deriving from a plurality of sensors equipped in the vehicle, calculating a database reference number based upon the plurality of measurement values, the database reference number newly identifying a particular CAN database among the plurality of CAN databases, and performing CAN communication, by each ECU, based upon the uniquely configured CAN message information stored in the newly identified CAN database.
