  • Patent number: 10816445
    Abstract: A particle sensing system is for sensing particles entrained in a fluid. The system comprises a flow channel having a longitudinal direction along which the fluid is to be passed, a heating arrangement for heating the fluid and thereby applying a positive thermophoretic force on the fluid in a direction perpendicular to the longitudinal direction of the flow channel and a first sensor for sensing the particles in the fluid after heating by the heating arrangement. The thermophoretic force increases the concentration of the particles at the first sensor.

  • Patent number: 10778900
    Abstract: An approach is provided for adjusting camera shots. The approach involves receiving an audio signal via a microphone of a mobile device during video recording of a subject by a camera of the mobile device. The approach also involves determining, at the mobile device, an audio level in a vicinity of the subject based on the received audio signal, wherein the audio level is based on sounds produced by the subject. The approach additionally involves determining that the audio level triggers a shot adjustment state. In the alternative or in addition to, the shot adjustment state is triggered by facial expression of the subject. The approach further involves dynamically adjusting, in response to the shot adjustment state, one or more camera parameters of the camera to alter shot of the subject by the camera during the video recording. The camera parameters relate to either zoom control, aperture, lighting, or a combination thereof.
