  • Publication number: 20190147595
    Abstract: A healthcare monitoring system for health caring and space monitoring that determines movements or existence of a care recipient by utilizing visual images to detect variation in shape of an optical pattern is provided. The system includes a light source unit, an image capturing unit, an image processing unit and a warning unit. By capturing the shape variation of the optical pattern emitted by the light source unit provided around a lying equipment via the image capturing unit, the system effectively determines motions of the care recipient lying on the lying equipment, such as motions of getting up, turning over and hand waving, in addition to lying flat, and detects activities of care providers or irrelevant persons around the lying equipment, thereby having an advantage that the activities of the care recipient lying on the lying equipment and the condition around the lying equipment can be monitored comprehensively.

  • Patent number: 10200676
    Abstract: The present invention discloses an image detection system of a vehicle for detecting at least one target object around a vehicle, and further detecting a distance between the at least one target object and the vehicle. The image detection system of the vehicle at least includes a light source unit, an image capturing unit and an alarm unit. The present invention primarily employs a laser beam incident onto the target object to form at least one optical pattern, and variation of the optical pattern and a motion object detection are collocated to effectively calculate the distance between the target object and the vehicle, thereby achieving an advantage of alarming and alerting a driver to safety of driving.

  • Patent number: 10194079
    Abstract: A vehicle surveillance system is disclosed and includes a plurality of image capturing units, an image processing unit, and a display unit for monitoring a position of at least one target around a vehicle and measuring a distance between the at least one target and the vehicle. The vehicle surveillance system utilizes a space domain determination module, a time domain determination module, and a ground surface elimination module to transform original images of the target around the vehicle into the bird's-eye-view panorama, and further detects variation of an optical pattern incident onto the target through a light beam emitted by a light source so as to effectively remind a driver on the on-going vehicle of the position of the target and the distance, and real-time detect and capture an image of any person approaching the vehicle, thereby achieving driving safety and securing lives and personal properties.

  • Publication number: 20180181141
    Abstract: Disclosed is a robot surveillance system for preventing a robot from falling down or collision by means of dynamic detection of moving object invasion. The system includes a light-emitting unit, an image capture unit, an image processing unit, a turning control unit, and a wireless transceiver unit. The image capture unit combines with an optic pattern to provide a visual module for the moving or surveillance robot. The shape of the optic pattern changes as the robot moves toward the object or pothole, and the image processing unit recognizes the detected object to be standstill, and thus controls the moving direction of the robot to effectively avoid falling or collision. Any moving object in the space is detected by the object motion detection, thereby effectively achieving the goal of spatial surveillance and security.

  • Publication number: 20180025600
    Abstract: A security alert system includes a light emitting unit, an image capturing unit, a distance arithmetic unit, a multimedia player unit and an alarm generating unit, wherein the image capturing unit and the distance arithmetic unit capture and calculate varied images of a viewer and an optical pattern emitted from the light emitting unit whether the viewer is within the range of an exhibition/performance activity such that the multimedia player unit displays a corresponding exhibition/performance activity to been seen or heard by the viewer, and if the viewer approaches near a boundary line of the display content, the alarm generating unit generates an alarm signal or sound to be seen or heard by the viewer and hence providing interactive effects between the exhibition/performance activity and the viewer.
