  • Publication number: 20210279964
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method includes generating, using a scene generator, first candidate scene data; obtaining reference scene data corresponding to a predetermined reference scene; processing the first candidate scene data and the reference scene data, using a scene discriminator, to generate first discrimination data for estimating whether each of the first candidate scene data and the reference scene data corresponds to a predetermined reference scene; updating a set of parameter values for the scene discriminator using the first discrimination data; generating, using the scene generator, second candidate scene data; processing the second candidate scene data, using the scene discriminator with the updated set of parameter values for the scene discriminator, to generate second discrimination data for estimating whether the second candidate scene data corresponds to a predetermined reference scene; and updating a set of parameter values for the scene generator using the second discrimination data.

  • Publication number: 20210168348
    Abstract: A method comprising the steps of obtaining image data captured at an image sensor using a focus configuration. A distance is determined for one or more objects in the image data, based on the focus configuration and a sharpness characteristic of the image data of the object. A depth map is then generated based on the determined distance.

  • Patent number: 10901884
    Abstract: Broadly speaking, embodiments of the present technique provide an apparatus and methods for improved wear-levelling in non-volatile memory (NVM) devices. In particular, the present wear-levelling techniques operate on small blocks within a memory device, at a finer scale/granularity than that used by common wear-levelling techniques which often remap large blocks (e.g. several kilobytes) of data.

  • Patent number: 10618774
    Abstract: A method is provided for displaying information in an elevator arrangement including an elevator car that is movable, as controlled by an operating panel, between landing zones that communicate traffic to and from the elevator car through a doorway, and one or more light sources. In the method, visible objects are defined for guiding traffic of the elevator arrangement. A destination landing zone is obtained by the operating panel. A current occupancy and current destination landing zone of the elevator car are determined. The light sources are set to illuminate at least one of the defined visible objects on a remote surface on the basis of the determined current occupancy and current destination landing zone of the elevator car and the destination landing zone obtained by the operating panel.

  • Patent number: 10445000
    Abstract: A device controller and method are provided for performing a plurality of write transactions atomically within a non-volatile data storage device. Each transaction specifies a logical address and the method comprises creating an address translation map for the logical addresses specified by the plurality of write transactions, by referencing an address translation record within the non-volatile data storage device to determine for each logical address a corresponding physical address within the data storage device. Further, if the corresponding physical address indicated in the address translation record already contains valid data, the logical address is remapped to a new physical address in the address translation map. However, at this point the address translation record as stored in the data storage device is not updated. Instead, the plurality of write transactions are performed using the logical address to physical address mapping in the address translation map.

  • Patent number: 9957135
    Abstract: An elevator includes an elevator car, a counterweight and suspension roping, which connects the elevator car and counterweight to each other, and which suspension roping includes one or more ropes, which include a load-bearing composite part, which includes reinforcing fibers in a polymer matrix. The elevator car and the counterweight are arranged to be moved by exerting a vertical force on at least the elevator car or on the counterweight. The elevator includes a device separate from the suspension roping for exerting the force on at least the elevator car or on the counterweight.

  • Patent number: 9950901
    Abstract: An elevator arrangement includes a plurality of elevators in a building, which plurality includes a plurality of zoned elevators moving in an elevator hoistway, which have different ranges of movement of the elevator car in the building to each other, and which zoned elevators each have a top limit and a bottom limit of the range of movement of the elevator car, to above the top limit and to below the bottom limit of which range of movement travel of the elevator car of the zoned elevator in question is prevented. The vertical location, in relation to the building, of the top limit and/or bottom limit of the range of movement of the elevator car of each aforementioned zoned elevator can be changed.

  • Patent number: 9809424
    Abstract: A method of constructing an elevator, the elevator including a hoistway, an elevator car, a first movable support structure in the hoistway above the elevator car, for supporting the elevator car with a roping, and a roof structure, separate from the movable support structure, in the hoistway above the support structure, where the elevator car is used for transporting passengers and/or goods, and thereafter the first movable support structure is lifted higher in the hoistway, and thereafter the elevator car is used again for transporting passengers and/or goods. The method includes lifting the roof structure higher in the hoistway so as to make more room below the roof structure, the roof structure being a movable roof structure, and in that the movable roof structure is lifted in the hoistway taking support for the lift from a second movable support structure mounted in the hoistway above the roof structure.

  • Patent number: 9695012
    Abstract: An elevator includes at least one elevator car and a counterweight which are at least partly suspended on hoisting ropes and a drive machine driving a traction sheave engaging the hoisting ropes for moving the elevator car along guide rails in an elevator shaft, which elevator further includes a compensation rope. The compensation rope is led upwards to an upper part of the elevator shaft and from there aside to a balancing area located aside of the travel paths of the car and counterweight. This solution is particularly adapted for high travel elevators facing horizontal forces during operation as e.g. ship elevators. Collision of compensation ropes are avoided in the area below the car and counterweight paths which could affect the elevator safety when subjected to high horizontal forces, e.g. during rough sea.

  • Patent number: 9604820
    Abstract: Method and arrangement in the manufacture of an elevator, which includes during construction time an elevator hoistway, an elevator car, hoisting roping, a supporting structure including a plurality of support elements movable between a position extended from the supporting structure towards the side and a position retracted towards the supporting structure, and a platform. A plurality of lifts are performed, in each of which lifts the supporting structure is lifted higher up in the elevator hoistway, while the support elements are in the retracted position, after which the support elements are displaced into the extended position and the supporting structure is lowered to rest on top of the structures of the building supported by the support elements in the extended position for the vertical support of the supporting structure in the elevator hoistway, and between lifts the elevator car is used for transporting passengers and/or freight between floors.

  • Patent number: 9573793
    Abstract: The invention relates to an elevator having a car and guide rails along which the car is guided along a hoistway between landings of the elevator, the car comprising: a frame, upper and lower guide elements, which are mounted to said frame at a vertical distance from each other, and exactly one elevator cabin with a cabin floor, in which elevator the cabin is—in travel direction of the car—movably connected to the frame between an uppermost and a lowermost position. By this means a high travel comfort can be obtained with economic space usage at the top and bottom of the hoistway.
