  • Publication number: 20180178785
    Abstract: A system for detecting a lane line of a road and a method thereof is disclosed. An image-retrieving device retrieves an image in front of a vehicle to generate a picture, and transmits the picture to a processing device. The processing device transforms one or two lane lines on the picture into a plurality of characteristic values, processes the characteristic values to generate one or two prediction lane lines, and uses them to dynamically predict and complete the lane lines, thereby forming a lane line prediction model. The processing device uses the lane line prediction model to determine whether the vehicle deviates, and transmits the picture and the lane line prediction model to a display device to display. When the vehicle deviates, the display device warns. The present invention can improve to recognize an unclear lane line, a single lane line and a far lane line.

  • Patent number: 9758328
    Abstract: A transport mechanism for a peripheral device and an operating method including the same are provided. The transport mechanism includes a tray, at least a transport roller, a detector, a trigger component and a processor. The tray includes an opening extending through the tray. The transport roller is rotatably installed in the opening and protruded from the tray to transport a flexible object to move along a transport path. The detector near the tray has a detecting area. The trigger component is located in the opening and spaced apart from the flexible object on the transport path. The flexible object deviated from the transport path presses the trigger component to enter or leave the detecting area and triggers the detector to transmit an abnormal detecting signal. The processor receives the abnormal detecting signal to stop the transport roller.

  • Patent number: 9728075
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a distributed automatic notification method for abnormality in remote massive monitors. If a data stream is not available, a disconnect prompt stream is generated. The data stream is converted to a continuous video. Then, the continuous video is divided into a plurality of single-frame images along the time axis, and each single-frame image is divided into a plurality of image grids. A plurality of pixels are next selected from each image grid. According to a plurality of image parameter values corresponding to the plurality of pixels, a statistical value of image grid parameter is calculated. Then whether an image grid is monochromatic can be judged according to the statistical value of image grid parameter. When a plurality of continuous single-frame images are judged to be monochromatic single-frame images, the color of the monochromatic single-frame images can be further judged.
