  • Patent number: 10558260
    Abstract: A technique is described herein for determining a pose of at least one mobile controller. The technique involves using a transmitter to initially emit a magnetic field and/or electromagnetic radiation at an elevated-power level, with respect to a normal-use power level. A receiver detects the magnetic field and/or electromagnetic radiation, to provide received signals. A tracking component determines the pose of the controller based on the received signals. Thereafter, the technique transmits the magnetic field and/or electromagnetic radiation at the normal-use power level. In one implementation, a head-mounted display (HMD) uses the above-summarized technique to find the controller when the user initially dons the HMD. This is useful because the controller may be invisible to the user who dons the HMD because it is out-of-range with respect to the normal-use operating space of the HMD.

  • Patent number: 10535119
    Abstract: Systems and methods of enhancing the resolution of digital terrain models (DTM) for location-based applications and analyses. The DTM enhancement process takes the signature of the input image (e.g., via the input image and a noise surface file with similar characteristics as the sensor used to capture the input image) and applies it to the DTM without including large features such as buildings. The disclosed methods include utilize a process similar to that used for enhancing a DSM based on mapping the changing intensity from the image file to changes in elevation in the DSM using a regression over a local neighborhood of pixels. Further, the disclosed methods do not rely on information about the sensors and are extendable to be able to utilize any types of images. Additionally, the disclosed embodiments are sensor agnostic and can be applied on any type of image collected by any type of sensor.

  • Publication number: 20200011704
    Abstract: A system determines the transmission strength of the magnetic field signal. The magnetic field signal is transmitted from a first magnetic-sensor device to a second magnetic-sensor device. The system then determines a first projected distance between the first magnetic-sensor device and the second magnetic-sensor device. Based at least in part on the first projected distance, the system calculates an adjusted transmission strength for the magnetic field signal. The system then causes the first magnetic-sensor device to transmit an adjusted magnetic field signal. The adjusted magnetic field signal comprises the adjusted transmission strength. The system receives, from the second magnetic-field device, the adjusted magnetic field signal. Based at least in part upon the received adjusted magnetic field signal, the system, computes a first pose of the first magnetic-sensor device in relation to the second magnetic-sensor device.
