  • Patent number: 11026571
    Abstract: A method for processing pupil tracking images, comprising the steps of: 1) acquiring eye images multiple times; 2) processing each acquired eye image, and determining whether a pupil can be positioned in the acquired image; and 3) determining that pupil tracking is completed when the pupil can be positioned in consecutive n pieces of eye images. Image processing efficiency is improved by searching a potential bright spot area and carrying out Blob analysis smearing images caused by pupil movement can be eliminated, the pupil edge is accurately positioned by adopting a line drawing method in collaboration with a support vector machine when determining the pupil edge, and finally a weighted least square method is adopted to fit a circle/ellipse (pupil). Therefore, real-time tracking and analysis of the pupil under a complex background are realized, and reliable data are provided for subsequent steps to obtain the refractive parameters of the eye.

  • Patent number: 11005658
    Abstract: A transmission system includes a first security unit coupling to application ends, a second security unit coupling to a user end, and a server. The server sends a first attribute key to the first security unit based on attributes of the application ends and sends a second attribute key to the second security unit based on attributes of the user end. To enable one application end, the first security unit encrypts a session key with the first attribute key, opens a socket, and sends the encrypted session key to the server. When the second security unit receives a request for the application end, the server sends the encrypted session key to the second security unit. The second security unit decrypts the encrypted session key with the second attribute key and connects to the socket. The second security unit interchanges information with the first security unit via the session key.
