  • Patent number: 10018464
    Abstract: A structured light imaging (SLI) system includes a projection system, image sensor system and processing module. The projection system is operable to project a single SLI pattern into an imaging area. The image sensor system is operable to capture images of a 3D object moving through the imaging area. The image sensor system outputs a subset of camera pixels corresponding to a subwindow of a camera frame to generate subwindow images. The processing module is operable to create a 3D surface map of the 3D object based on the subwindow images.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 7429932
    Abstract: The present invention greatly enhances the user experience when the user is attempting to “teach” an electronic control device the code set used by a remote control unit. In one embodiment, the user is simply instructed to depress a button on the remote control unit. The electronic control device captures the overall waveform of the transmission corresponding to the code representing the depressed button and matches it against codes found in a code set database. If a unique match is found, the full code set data describing the matched code set is retrieved from the code set database and is used by the first electronic control device.
