  • Patent number: 10785493
    Abstract: A method of compressing image data is described in which a difference value is formed for a respective pixel, said difference value corresponding to a predetermined relation between the pixel value and the estimated pixel value of the respective pixel and being represented by a first binary word that has a first length. The first binary word is encoded by at least one second binary word that has a second predetermined length. the first length is compared with the second length to determine whether the first length is smaller than the second length, with the first binary word otherwise being completely encoded by a single second binary word when the first length is smaller than the second length, and with the first binary word otherwise being completely encoded by a plurality of second binary words. A method of decompressing image data is furthermore described that corresponds to a reversal of the compression method.

  • Publication number: 20200286370
    Abstract: A transportation threat detection system includes a communication module that receives an inertial event report from a reporting vehicle. The report includes (i) an indication of an inertial event from an inertial sensor at the reporting vehicle, and (ii) an indication of a geographic location associated with the event. The system also includes a fusion processor that associates the inertial event report with a potential transportation threat, consistent with the inertial event report and at the geographic location. The fusion processor generates a measure of support for the transportation threat potentially existing at the geographic location based on a participation rate generated using any additional inertial event reports received from respective additional reporting vehicles. The system also includes a reporting interface that renders output indicative of the potential transportation threat, wherein the output is made as a function of the generated measure of support.

  • Patent number: 10764316
    Abstract: A malware detection system based on stored data that analyzes an electronic message for threats by comparing it to previously received messages in a message archive or to a contacts list. Threat protection rules may be generated dynamically based on the message and contacts history. A message that appears suspicious may be blocked, or the system may insert warnings to the receiver not to provide personal information without verifying the message. Threat checks may look for unknown senders, senders with identities that are similar to but not identical to previous senders or to known contacts, or senders that were added only recently as contacts. Links embedded in messages may be checked by comparing them to links previously received or to domain names of known contacts. The system may flag messages as potential threats if they contradict previous messages, or if they appear unusual compared to the patterns of previous messages.

  • Patent number: 10680551
    Abstract: A method determines a cabling of a unit of a photovoltaic system. The unit includes a number of solar components and a transfer point. The method includes generating a cabling chart with paths between a connection of each solar component and the transfer point according to cable routing regulations, determining preferred paths of each solar component to the transfer point based on the cabling charts, and selecting one of the determined paths for each solar component such that the cabling complexity for the unit is minimized. In the process, the cabling complexity is determined based on the sum of the lengths of the selected paths and the length of a cable channel in which the cables run individually or in a bundled manner.
