  • Patent number: 10740122
    Abstract: A system module applied to the machine controller for simulating a machine operation screen based on a non-invasive data-extraction system, is disclosed. An image capture device of the system module can receive an original operation screen outputted from the machine controller, and transmit the original operation screen to the non-invasive data-extraction system and a high-speed image process unit for extraction of the information shown on the operation screen. The software control system can extract the operational information of the machine controller in real time, to create a machine operation flow for generating a simulated machine operation screen which is then outputted to a screen of the machine controller. As a result, the site working staff can be provided with operational information associated with the machine in real time, for example, the operational information includes currently executed operation screen, position of mouse cursor and pop-up window detection result.

  • Publication number: 20180241984
    Abstract: The disclosure proposes a method and a system for 360-degree video playback. The method is applicable to a video playback system and includes at least the following steps. A current frame of a 360-degree video having a sequence of frames is received. Candidate objects in the current frame are detected, and a main object is selected from the candidate objects by using a selector recurrent neural network (RNN) model based on information of the candidate objects in the current frame. A viewing angle corresponding to the current frame is computed by using a regressor RNN model based on the main object in the current frame. The current frame is displayed on the screen according to the viewing angle.

  • Patent number: 7992077
    Abstract: A data slicer includes an error bit predictor, a DC level compensator, a co-channel detector, and an output device. The data slicer generates four bytes according to four slicing levels respectively. The four slicing levels are a DC level, a level generated by adding a predetermined offset to the DC level, a level generated by subtracting the predetermined offset from the DC level, and a compensated level generated by the DC level compensator. The co-channel detector determines if the compensated level has the co-channel interference. The output device generates an output byte according to indication signals generated by the co-channel detector and the error bit predictor and the parity check of the four bytes.
