  • Publication number: 20200329332
    Abstract: A method of generating binaural headphone playback signals given multiple audio source signals with an associated metadata and binaural room impulse response (BRIR) database is provided, wherein the audio source signals can be channel-based, object-based, or a mixture of both signals. The method includes grouping the audio source signals according to positions of the audio sources, parameterizing BRIR to be used for rendering, and dividing each audio source signal to be rendered into a number of blocks and frames. The method also includes averaging the parameterized BRIR sequences, downmixing the divided audio source signals using the diffuse blocks of BRIRs, and performing late reverberation processing on the downmixed version of the previous blocks of the audio source signals.

    Abstract: Systems and methods for facilitating online to offline commerce are disclosed. In one embodiment, a system configured to receive a request to check-in a customer at a merchant facility is disclosed. The system receives a request to access real-time pre-sale transaction data associated with a first customer and transmits the real-time pre-sale transaction data associated with the first customer to a mobile client device. The request to check-in and the request to access the real-time pre-sale transaction data are transmitted by the first mobile client device. The system is configured to authenticate the request to check-in at the merchant facility, process the request to access the real-time pre-sale transaction data, and responsively access the real-time pre-sale transaction data associated with the first customer from a point of sale device located at the merchant facility.

  • Publication number: 20200328384
    Abstract: The present disclosure relate to the technical field of secondary batteries, and in particular, to a secondary battery and a top cover component thereof. The top cover component provided by the present disclosure includes a top cover plate having an electrode lead-out hole, and a second sealing portion and a second insulating portion stretching into the electrode lead-out hole, and the second sealing portion and the second insulating portion are at least partially staggered to each other on the radial direction of the electrode lead-out hole and are at least partially overlapped on the height direction. Based on this, a direct discharge clearance can be effectively blocked, and the creepage distance can be prolonged, thereby being conducive to reducing the risk of on fire or explosion and other problems of the secondary battery while withstanding a high voltage.

  • Publication number: 20200303250
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally relates to methods for processing of substrates, and more particularly relates to methods for forming a metal gapfill. In one implementation, the method includes forming a metal gapfill in an opening using a multi-step process. The multi-step process includes forming a first portion of the metal gapfill, performing a sputter process to form one or more layers on one or more side walls, and growing a second portion of the metal gapfill to fill the opening with the metal gapfill. The metal gapfill formed by the multi-step process is seamless, and the one or more layers formed on the one or more side walls seal any gaps or defects between the metal gapfill and the side walls. As a result, fluids utilized in subsequent processes do not diffuse through the metal gapfill.

  • Publication number: 20200294512
    Abstract: A sound source estimation unit (101) estimates, in a space as a target of sparse sound field decomposition, an area where a sound source is present at second granularity that is coarser than first granularity of a position where a sound source is assumed to be present in the sparse sound field decomposition. A sparse sound field decomposition unit (102) decomposes an acoustic signal observed by a microphone array into a sound source signal and an ambient noise signal by performing a sparse sound field decomposition process at the first granularity for the acoustic signal in the area at the second granularity where the sound source is estimated to be present in the space.

  • Publication number: 20200284954
    Abstract: A method for performing DBO measurements utilizing apertures having a single pole includes using a first aperture plate to measure X-axis diffraction of a composite grating. In some embodiments, the first aperture plate has a first pair of radiation-transmitting regions disposed along a first diametrical axis and on opposite sides of an optical axis that is aligned with a center of the first aperture plate. Thereafter, in some embodiments, a second aperture plate, which is complementary to the first aperture plate, is used to measure Y-axis diffraction of the composite grating. By way of example, the second aperture plate has a second pair of radiation-transmitting regions disposed along a second diametrical axis and on opposite sides of the optical axis. In some cases, the second diametrical axis is substantially perpendicular to the first diametrical axis.
