  • Patent number: 10783664
    Abstract: A method for setting a camera, in particular of a monitoring device, comprising a recording of an image of a region to be monitored, an analysis of the recorded image to associate at least one image region of the image with an object, identification of the object on the basis of the acquired image region and ascertainment of a size of the object by access to stored size information of the identified object and a scaling of the image region associated with the object in the recorded image to scale the remaining acquired image and/or to determine a distance of the camera to the acquired object.

  • Patent number: 10735660
    Abstract: A method for object identification is described, the method initially including a step of reading in, in which input data signals, as well as a determined camera control parameter for adjusting a recording feature of a camera are read in. The input data signals in this case represent the images of the object to be identified that are recorded by at least one camera. Finally, the method includes a step of identification, in which the object is identified in a neural network using the determined camera control parameter.

  • Patent number: 10341647
    Abstract: A method for calibrating a camera. The method includes a step of reading in and a step of ascertaining, an imaging trajectory and a reference trajectory of a moving calibration object detected by using the camera being read in in the step of reading in, the imaging trajectory representing a trajectory imaged in image coordinates of the camera and the reference trajectory representing the trajectory in world coordinates, and at least one calibration parameter for the camera being ascertained in the step of ascertaining by using the imaging trajectory and the reference trajectory.

  • Publication number: 20170011631
    Abstract: A motor vehicle is to be transferred over a segment between a transfer point and a parking space of a parking facility. A method includes steps of detecting a motor vehicle that is to be parked in a parking space, determining unoccupied parking spaces in the parking facility, determining a traffic volume in the parking facility, and selecting one of the unoccupied parking spaces in such a way that the traffic volume on a segment between the transfer point and the selected parking space is preferably minimized. Subsequently, the motor vehicle may be guided driver-independently from the transfer point to the selected parking space.
