  • Patent number: 10235973
    Abstract: An optical sensing method capable of changing a sensing direction of an optical sensing module is applied to a portable device, which includes a housing, an optical sensing module and an optical diverting mechanism. The optical sensing module is disposed inside the housing. The optical sensing module includes an optical emitter adapted to emit an optical sensing signal out of the housing and an optical receiver adapted to receive an optical modulated signal reflected from an external object. The optical diverting mechanism is adjacent by the optical sensing module. The optical sensing signal is directly projected while the optical sensing signal is not diverted by the optical diverting mechanism, and the optical sensing signal is transmitted to a second direction different from the first direction while the optical sensing signal is diverted by the optical diverting mechanism.

  • Patent number: 10225442
    Abstract: An electronic device for sensing air quality is provided. The electronic device includes a proximity sensor, a processor and a memory. The proximity sensor at least includes a light source and a light sensor. The light source emits light toward particulate matter in air, wherein the light is reflected by a surface of the particulate matter to form reflected light. The light sensor senses the reflected light. The processor is coupled to the proximity sensor, and the memory is operatively coupled to the processor. The processor is configured to execute program code stored in the memory by: obtaining an air quality value corresponding to an intensity value of the reflected light according to an air quality table.

  • Publication number: 20180260042
    Abstract: A processor of an apparatus receives sensor data from an inertial measurement unit (IMU). The processor also receives image data. The processor performs a fusion process on the sensor data and the image data to provide a translation output. The processor then performs one or more six-degrees-of-freedom (6DoF)-related operations using the translation output.
