  • Patent number: 10641608
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a method for real-time positioning of a smart device, comprising: getting tri-axial acceleration sequences truncated in turn by using a preset time period in the world coordinate individually; acquiring a dominate frequency fstep by applying fast Fourier transform (FFT) on the truncated Z-axis acceleration sequence, using a band-pass filter with a pass band [fstep?0.5 Hz, fstep+0.5 Hz] to filter the truncated tri axial acceleration sequences individually; comparing the time domain waveform form from the filtered Z-axis acceleration sequence with a preset step threshold, and counting each peak above the threshold as a step to acquire a user's step number in the present time period; determining the moving direction of the smart device in the time period by calculating the filtered X-axis and Y-axis acceleration sequences; determining the current position of the smart device by calculating the user's step number and the moving direction of the smart device.

  • Publication number: 20190306520
    Abstract: A method includes transcoding a first block of a video. The first block is associated with a first block tree pattern defining a structure of splitting a block into smaller blocks. A bit string of bits for the first block tree pattern is included in an encoded bitstream for the video. The method determines that the first block tree pattern of the first block can be reused for a second block tree pattern of a second block and includes information in the encoded bitstream that indicates that the first block tree pattern is to be used to decode the second block from the encoded bitstream.

  • Publication number: 20190306499
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method determines if a first flag for using a most probable mode (MPM) set for intra prediction is set. When the first flag indicates the MPM set is used, the method decodes a first index for the MPM, the first index indicating a first intra prediction mode in the MPM set. When the first flag does not indicate the MPM set is being used, the method determines if a second flag for using a near-MPM set is set. When the second flag indicates the near-MPM set is being used, the method decodes a second index for the near-MPM, the second index indicating a second intra prediction mode in the near-MPM set. When the second flag does not indicate the near-MPM is being used, the method decodes a third index for a non-MPM, the third index indicating a third intra prediction mode in the non-MPM set.

  • Publication number: 20190306512
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method selects a first reference block in a first reference frame and a second reference block in a second reference frame. The first reference block and the second reference block are used to predict a current block in a current frame. A first region is selected based on the first reference block, a second region is selected based the second reference block, and a third region is selected based on the current block. The method compares a characteristic of the first region to a characteristic of the third region and compares a characteristic of the second region to the characteristic of the third region to adaptively determine a first weight for the first reference block and a second weight for the second reference block. Then, a prediction block is calculated for the current block using the first weight and the second weight.

  • Publication number: 20190306495
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method selects a first reference block in a first reference frame and a second reference block in a second reference frame. The first reference block and the second reference block are used to predict a current block. The first reference block is selected as an anchor point. Then, the method searches in the second reference frame for a third reference block and determines whether the third reference block is a better reference block than the second reference block for predicting the current block.

  • Publication number: 20190177889
    Abstract: A method of making weaving a tubular fabric of particular usefulness in power transmission belting and other technical applications. The method includes weaving a secondary, removable warp yarn along with the primary warp yarn in the region of the edge folds on a shuttle loom. The removable warp yarn may be a soluble or meltable yarn. The removable yarn is removed after weaving, resulting in substantially uniform warp density all around the tubular fabric.
