  • Patent number: 10957112
    Abstract: An augmented reality viewing system is described. A local coordinate frame of local content is transformed to a world coordinate frame. A further transformation is made to a head coordinate frame and a further transformation is made to a camera coordinate frame that includes all pupil positions of an eye. One or more users may interact in separate sessions with a viewing system. If a canonical map is available, the earlier map is downloaded onto a viewing device of a user. The viewing device then generates another map and localizes the subsequent map to the canonical map.

  • Publication number: 20210084287
    Abstract: Methods, devices and systems are disclosed for improved depth perception in stereoscopic night vision devices. Among these are embodiments for aligning information overlays in the stereo view with associated objects, and for generating stereo information from single lenses or intensifiers. In some illustrative embodiments, a camera and position sensor are provided for at least two viewers, e.g., a pilot and a copilot, such that when a scene overlaps between viewers, the system produces a stereoptic scene, in which the users can more accurately determine a difference in depth between two or more distant objects. An illustrative binocular night vision system uses a high-resolution depth map to present binocular images to a user. In some embodiments, supplementary content can be overlaid, with an appropriate binocular disparity that is based on the depth map.

  • Patent number: 10942775
    Abstract: Embodiments includes a computer-implemented method, a system and computer-program product for modifying central serialization of requests in multiprocessor systems. Some embodiments includes receiving an operation requiring resources from a pool of resources, determining an availability of the pool of resources required by the operation, and selecting a queue of a plurality of queues to queue the operation based at least in part on the availability of the pool of resources. Some embodiments also include setting a resource needs register and needs register for the selected queue, and setting a take-two bit for the selected queue.

  • Patent number: 10931451
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for establishing an operating environment by certifying a code image received from a host over a communication link are described. The code image may be digitally signed through a central authority server. Certification of the code image may be determined by a fingerprint embedded within a secure storage area such as a ROM (read only memory) of the portable device based on a public key certification process. A certified code image may be assigned a hash signature to be stored in a storage of the portable device. An operating environment of the portable device may be established after executing the certified code.

  • Publication number: 20210043008
    Abstract: Disclosed is an improved approach for generated recordings from augmented reality systems from the perspective of a camera within the system. Instead of re-using rendered virtual content from the perspective of the user's eyes for AR recordings, additional virtual content is rendered from an additional perspective specifically for the AR recording. That additional virtual content is combined with image frames generated by a camera to form the AR recording.

  • Patent number: 10915461
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention are directed to a computer-implemented method for cache eviction. The method includes detecting a first data in a shared cache and a first cache in response to a request by a first processor. The first data is determined to have a mid-level cache eviction priority. A request is detected from a second processor for a same first data as requested by the first processor. However, in this instance, the second processor has indicated that the same first data has a low-level cache eviction priority. The first data is duplicated and loaded to a second cache, however, the data has a low-level cache eviction priority at the second cache.

  • Publication number: 20210035353
    Abstract: Disclosed is an approach for constructing a new frame using rendered content and non-rendered content from a previous perspective. Points of visible surfaces of a first set of objects from a first perspective are rendered. Both rendered content and non-rendered content from the first perspective are stored. The new frame from the second perspective is generated using the rendered content and the non-rendered content from the first perspective.

  • Patent number: 10887157
    Abstract: An application executing on a mobile computing platform provides independent data channels over a mobile network to multiple separate computing systems that each maintain some data pertinent to problem determination and resolution when an incident arises in a monitored information technology (IT) environment. The application maintains and separately exercises the channels to provide timely information in a user interface that composites data to present a single interface with a multi-sourced contextual rendering. Some systems may include an IT monitoring system and a separate incident management system among its sources. Channels may include extended functionality to improve security or other aspects of communication with mobile platforms.

  • Patent number: 10836533
    Abstract: An easy-opening end closure that may also be reclosed, suitable for joining to a container. A cover panel is bonded around its perimeter to an end panel with a rotatable lever interposed between them. To open the closure, a user applies force to the rotating lever to move it axially around an attachment point and progressively debond the seal perimeter. In this process, latching mechanisms ensure uni-directional movement of the lever relative to the shutter and joining of the two components at the end of the rotational sweep.

  • Publication number: 20200357094
    Abstract: A computer implemented method for warping multi-field color virtual content for sequential projection includes obtaining first and second color fields having different first and second colors. The method also includes determining a first time for projection of a warped first color field. The method further includes determining a second time for projection of a warped second color field. Moreover, the method includes predicting a first pose at the first time and predicting a second pose at the second time. In addition, the method includes generating the warped first color field by warping the first color field based on the first pose. The method also includes generating the warped second color field by warping the second color field based on the second pose.
