  • Patent number: 10699433
    Abstract: A liquid level detecting method is provided. Firstly, a receiving component is provided, wherein the receiving component includes a transmissive container for containing a liquid and a marking component located on a rear surface of the transmissive container. Then, a camera captures a receiving component image of the receiving component from a front surface of the transmitting container, wherein the receiving component image includes a transmissive container image and a marking component image. Then, the marker component image is analyzed downward from an end portion to obtain multiple width values of multiple position points of the marker component image. Then, a width difference between each width value and a width average of the marking component image is obtained. Then, a position point whose width difference value is not within a preset range is determined. Then, according to the position point, a liquid level of the liquid is determined.

  • Patent number: 10061888
    Abstract: Apparatus and associated methods may relate to a system for predicting a respirator fit by comparing a respirator model in a deformed state to a specific facial model. In an illustrative example, an internal measurement may be calculated between an inside part of the respirator model and the facial model. The internal measurement may be compared against a predetermined threshold to determine a fit of the respirator model, for example. In various implementations, the internal measurement may be a distance and/or a volume between the respirator and facial model. In some implementations, a 3D representation of the respirator model may be displayed upon a 3D representation of the facial model. In some implementations, a color-coded facial display may characterize areas of comfort and discomfort with respect to the respirator model. For example, areas of comfort and discomfort may be objectively determined in view of an applied pressure by the respirator.
