  • Publication number: 20240112330
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for screening mobile terminal visual attention abnormalities in children based on multimodal data learning. A calibration video and a testing video are set up, and a head-face video of children while watching the calibration video and the testing video on smartphones is recorded, respectively. An eye-tracking estimation model is constructed to predict the fixation point location from the head-face video corresponding to the testing video frame by frame and to extract the eye-tracking features. Facial expression features and head posture features are extracted. A Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) network is used to fuse different modal features and realize the mapping from multimodal features to category labels. In the testing stage, the head-face video of children to be classified while watching the videos on smartphones is recorded, and the features are extracted and input into the post-training model to determine whether they are abnormal.

  • Patent number: 11947047
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes a system and method for encoding pulses of light for LiDAR scanning. The system includes a sequence generator, a light source, a modulator, a light detector, a correlator, and a microprocessor. The sequence generator generates a sequence code that the modulator encodes into a pulse of light from the light source. The encoded pulse of light illuminates a surface of an object, in which scattered light from the encoded light pulse is detected. The correlator correlates the scattered light with the sequence code that outputs a peak value associated with a time that the pulse of light is received. The microprocessor is configured to determine a time difference between transmission and reception of the pulse of light based on whether the amplitude of the peak exceeds the threshold value. The microprocessor calculates a distance to the surface of the object based on the time difference.

  • Publication number: 20240103138
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure provide stray light filter structures in light detection and ranging (LiDAR) systems to attenuate stray light and reduce unwanted scattering. In some embodiments, a micro lens array is used together with a pinhole array to block stray light in the optical path just prior to the photodetector. In some embodiments, a bandpass optical filter is used in the optical path prior to the microlens array. In other embodiments, a slit filter is used further upstream in the optical path to block unwanted stray light and allow returning signal light to pass to imaging optics that provide a returning signal light image at a photodetector. In some embodiments, the imaging optics include a collimating lens and a focusing lens. In some embodiments, an optical bandpass filter is positioned on the optical path between the collimating lens and the focusing lens to reject light that is outside of a an expected wavelength range for returning signal light.

  • Patent number: 11914076
    Abstract: LiDAR system and methods discussed herein use a dispersion element or optic that has a refraction gradient that causes a light pulse to be redirected to a particular angle based on its wavelength. The dispersion element can be used to control a scanning path for light pulses being projected as part of the LiDAR's field of view. The dispersion element enables redirection of light pulses without requiring the physical movement of a medium such as mirror or other reflective surface, and in effect further enables at least portion of the LiDAR's field of view to be managed through solid state control. The solid state control can be performed by selectively adjusting the wavelength of the light pulses to control their projection along the scanning path.
