  • Patent number: 10172541
    Abstract: A motion recognition device includes a sensing unit and a processing unit. The sensing unit generates a sense signal in response to a body motion occurring at a specific position on a user's body, wherein the sense signal includes a first sense signal portion and a second sense signal portion different from the first sense signal portion, and the body motion belongs to a motion segment of a motion type. The processing unit processes the sense signal to generate a motion parameter signal structure including a fusion signal of the first and the second sense signal portions, and recognizes the specific position to determine an effective reference signal for recognition of the motion type based on the motion parameter signal structure.

  • Patent number: 9481070
    Abstract: The invention provides a polishing pad suitable for planarizing at least one of semiconductor, optical and magnetic substrates. The polishing pad is a cast polyurethane polymeric matrix formed from an isocyanate-terminated molecule and a curative agent. The cast polyurethane polymeric matrix contains 4.2 to 7.5 weight percent fluid-filled microspheres in the isocyanate-terminated molecule. The fluid-filled-microspheres is polymeric and has an average diameter of 10 to 80 ?m and the polishing pad having a conditioner sensitivity (CS) of 0 to 2.6.

  • Patent number: 8452338
    Abstract: Control methods for a cell phone are provided upon occurrence of a particular event, which receive a contact-related information from a touch screen of the cell phone, analyze the contact-related information to identify the contact position, the number of contact objects, or a gesture, to determine a further step to deal with the particular event. The particular event may include receipt of a call, sounding of an alarm of the cell phone, displaying of a short message on the touch screen, receipt of an interrupting call, or a standby mode of the cell phone.

  • Patent number: 8378987
    Abstract: A sensing method for a capacitive touch panel includes charging a measure capacitor, setting the voltage across a mutual capacitor at the intersection of two traces of the capacitive touch panel, and then injecting partial charges of the measure capacitor into the mutual capacitor. When the intersection is touched, the capacitance value of the mutual capacitor is changed, and consequently the amount of charges injected into the mutual capacitor is changed. Hence, the voltage of the measure capacitor could be detected to determine whether or not the intersection is touched.
