Patents by Inventor Douglas Van Blaricom

Douglas Van Blaricom has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20190142328
    Abstract: In one example, a system for measuring body movement is provided. The system may comprise at least one processor and a memory storing processor executable codes, which, when implemented by the at least one processor, cause the system to perform operations comprising, at least receiving a video including a sequence of images and detecting at least one object of interest in one or more of the images. Feature reference points of the at least one object of interest are located, and a virtual movement-detection framework is generated in one or more of the images. The operations may include detecting, over the sequence of images, at least one singular or reciprocating movement of the feature reference point relative to the virtual movement-detection framework and generating a virtual path tracking a path of the at least one detected singular or reciprocating movement of the feature reference point.

  • Patent number: 9264474
    Abstract: The principles of the invention relate to a system and method, that may include various different software and hardware components, that can provide feedback graphically indicating how many people are focused on an object or location at the same time on observers' image capture device screen. Such information may be communicated to each observer's device to convey the aggregate level of interest in the object, where the system performs operations involving tracking of the focus of the image capture devices, such as cell phones, on a location, following changes in a cluster size, and using the information to alter the displayed images according to the level of interest.

  • Publication number: 20150206027
    Abstract: The invention relates to a system and method of gathering and analyzing data from device operators aiming their image capture devices and thereby creating a line of sight to an object of interest, for example through the process of obtaining photographs, videos or other digital images of an event or geographical location, where the real-time or embedded location, compass heading, and time data from each of a plurality of image providers are communicated from the plurality of image-capture devices to one or more servers for statistical analysis of the proportionate amount of providers focusing on each image target or sub-target at the event or location.
