  • Patent number: 10423892
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for analyzing and learning behavior in an acquired stream of video frames. In one embodiment, a trajectory analyzer clusters trajectories of objects depicted in video frames and builds a trajectory model including the trajectory clusters, a prior probability of assigning a trajectory to each cluster, and an intra-cluster probability distribution indicating the probability that a trajectory mapping to each cluster is least various distances away from the cluster. Given a new trajectory, a score indicating how unusual the trajectory is may be computed based on the product of the probability of the trajectory mapping to a particular cluster and the intra-cluster probability of the trajectory being a computed distance from the cluster. The distance used to match the trajectory to the cluster and determine intra-cluster probability is computed using a parallel Needleman-Wunsch algorithm, with cells in antidiagonals of a matrix and connected sub-matrices being computed in parallel.

  • Publication number: 20190288893
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for improving channel estimation within an OFDM communication system. Channel estimation in OFDM is usually performed with the aid of pilot symbols. The pilot symbols are typically spaced in time and frequency. The set of frequencies and times at which pilot symbols are inserted is referred to as a pilot pattern. In some cases, the pilot pattern is a diagonal-shaped lattice, either regular or irregular. The method first interpolates in the direction of larger coherence (time or frequency). Using these measurements, the density of pilot symbols in the direction of faster change will be increased thereby improving channel estimation without increasing overhead. As such, the results of the first interpolating step can then be used to assist the interpolation in the dimension of smaller coherence (time or frequency).

    Abstract: A connector having a contact made of metal, and comprises a pair of elastic arms adapted to clamp a conductor of a wire, so as to electrically contact the conductor. A first release structure is on one of the pair of elastic arms and a second release structure, facing the first release structure, is on the other of the pair of elastic arms. A wedge channel is defined between the first release structure and the second release structure when the conductor is clamped between the pair of elastic arms and the wedge channel gradually widens toward free ends of the pair of elastic arms. The pair of elastic arms are adapted to be expanded away from each other by inserting an external tool into the wedge channel, so as to release the clamped conductor, improving the use convenience of the connector.
