  • Publication number: 20200240663
    Abstract: An Air Handling Unit for a ventilation system in a building has supply and extract air channels, each with an inlet and an outlet for guiding air to and from a building. Each air channel includes a damper controlling air flow. The air channels are in a heat exchanging relation to each other. The AHU also includes a fan and an Electronic Control Unit. The ECU outputs a defrost cycle initiation signal to defrost the heat recovery arrangement. The ECU outputs a defrost cycle termination signal to end the defrost cycle upon indication of the defrosting being completed. To optimize the defrost cycle time the ECU changes the first or second criterion for defrost cycle termination signal depending on the time for performing the defrost cycle such that the time period of the defrost cycle is prolonged/shortened when the defrost cycle time period is shorter/longer than preferred.

  • Publication number: 20200166994
    Abstract: Techniques for controlling light sources used in eye tracking are described. In an example, an eye tracking system generates a first image and a second image showing at least a portion of the user eye illuminated by a predetermined set of illuminators of the eye tracking system. The eye tracking system determines a first position of a glint in the first image and a second position of the glint in the second image. Each of the first position and the second position is relative to a pupil edge. The eye tracking system predicts a third position of the glint relative to the pupil edge based on the first position and the second position. Further, the eye tracking system determines, from the predetermined set, an illuminator that corresponds to the glint and determines, based on the third position, whether to power off the illuminator to generate a third image of at least the portion of the user eye.
