  • Publication number: 20190312634
    Abstract: A method is provided for transmitting a signal by a transmitter device to a satellite moving in orbit around the Earth, the transmitter device and the satellite including wireless telecommunication means. The method includes receiving, by the transmitter device, a signal transmitted by the satellite, termed the presence signal, analyzing a frequency shift induced by the Doppler effect on the presence signal received by the transmitter device, estimating a later change over time of the frequency shift starting from a later predetermined time of the beginning of transmission of the signal to be transmitted by the transmitter device and over a predetermined duration of the signal to be transmitted, and precomprensating the later change over time estimated from the frequency shift on the signal to be transmitted.

  • Patent number: 10429608
    Abstract: Various embodiments disclosed herein include techniques for maintaining multiple cameras in focus on same objects and/or at same distances. In some examples, a subordinate camera may be configured to focus based on the focus of a primary camera. For instance, a focus relationship between the primary camera and the subordinate camera may be determined. The focus relationship may characterize the trajectory of the lens position of the subordinate camera with respect to the lens position of the primary camera. In various examples, the focus relationship may be updated.

  • Publication number: 20190258671
    Abstract: An automatic video tagging system which learns from videos, their web context and comments shared on social networks is described. Massive multimedia collections are analyzed by Internet crawling and a knowledge base is maintained that updates in real time with no need of human supervision. As a result, each video is indexed with a rich set of labels and linked with other related contents. Practical applications of video recognition require a label scheme that is appealing to the end-user (i.e. obtained from social curation) and a training dataset that can be updated in real-time to be able to recognize new actions, scenes and people. To create this dataset that evolves in real-time and uses labels that are relevant to the users, a weakly-supervised deep learning approach is utilized combining both a machine-learning pre-processing stage together with a set of keywords obtained from the internet.

  • Publication number: 20170215766
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems comprising sensor devices that may be affixed to a patient and used to perform clinical measurements such as measurements for calculating a BASMI score. A first sensor device is configured to be successively attached to each of a wrist carrier, an ankle carrier, and a headset carrier. The carriers are attached to, or positioned next to, the relevant portion of the patient's body in order to perform particular measurements relating to generating a BASMI score. As the patient performs the routine of motions associated with a particular BASMI measurement, the sensor device records the measurements and communicates the measurements to a user computing device. A second sensor device is configured to be applied to the patient's torso and an additional measurement of patient flexibility taken and communicated to the user computing device. The user computing device generates a BASMI score from the recorded measurements.
