  • Patent number: 11118884
    Abstract: A dispenser for dispensing powder for firearm ammunition and associated methods. The dispenser can include a hopper, a conveyor, a scale, a dispenser controller, and a tangible storage medium storing instructions executable by the dispenser controller. The dispenser controller can execute a powder calibration sequence and/or a dispensing sequence. In the powder calibration sequence and/or the dispensing sequence, the dispenser controller desirably learns the dispense rate of the powder and uses the dispense rate to optimize dispensing of the powder and increase precision in dispensing a target mass of powder. The conveyor can comprise a conveyor tube having a conveyor tube axis oriented to extend at an upward angle with respect to horizontal.

  • Publication number: 20210004589
    Abstract: Provided is a technique for determining a context of an image and an object depicted by the image based on the context. A trained context classification model may determine a context of an image, and a trained object recognition model may determine an object depicted by the image based on the image and the context. Provided is also a technique for determining an object depicted within an image based on an input location of an input detected by a display screen. An object depicted within an image may be detected based on a distance in feature space between an image feature vector of an image and a feature vector of the object, and a distance in pixel-space between an input location of an input and location of the object within the image.

  • Publication number: 20200374521
    Abstract: According to certain embodiments, reducing data signal bandwidth comprises receiving a multi-resolution image having a plurality of concentric regions that each have a different level of resolution, where the regions closer to the center having greater levels of resolution. Generating a representative image comprising first rasterizing the multi-resolution image into a pixel representation of pixel data with an array of pixel values. A ring of pixels for each region results from discarding duplicate pixels from each region such that only the interior pixels from each region are preserved. In a first circular direction, duplicate pixels along each ring are discarded, the preserved unique pixels resulting in ring fragments. The ring fragments are then moved towards the center so that there are no gaps between the ring fragments for each level of resolution.
