  • Publication number: 20190253365
    Abstract: A proxy server automatically includes web applications in web pages at the network level. The proxy server receives, from a client device, a request for a network resource at a domain and is hosted at an origin server. The proxy server retrieves the requested network resource. The retrieved network resource does not include the web applications. The proxy server determines that the web applications are to be installed within the network resource. The proxy server automatically modifies the retrieved network resource to include the web applications. The proxy server transmits a response to the client device that includes the modified network resource. The network resource may remain unchanged at the origin server.

  • Publication number: 20190165689
    Abstract: A power converter with a modular, compact architecture with a reduced component count is disclosed. The power converter includes parallel power conversion sections and utilizes one or more mutual coupling input inductors with multiple windings. The windings are connected in pairs in a differential mode between a power source and the parallel power conversion sections. Each power conversion section receives the same input voltage and generates the same output voltage. As a result of the winding connections and the same input and output voltages, the input of the power converter exhibits current balancing and sharing between each branch of the parallel configuration, allowing a single current sensor to provide a measurement of the current and a single controller to control operation of each of the power conversion sections.

  • Publication number: 20190150256
    Abstract: A system for compensating for a back emission current in an X-ray generator is provided. The system includes a transformer, a common, and a voltage source. The transformer is operative to provide power to an electron emitter of the X-ray generator. The common is electrically coupled to an anode of the X-ray generator. The anode is operative to receive electrons emitted by the electron emitter such that the back emission current is generated between the common and the electron emitter. The voltage source electrically couples the common to the transformer and is operative to generate an offset voltage that reduces the back emission current.

  • Publication number: 20180365855
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to methods, devices or systems for detecting markers spread in an environment to estimate the pose of a device running an augmented reality application. Detecting markers and playing the AR application are two competitor tasks for the device's processing resources. When the number of markers to detect requires a substantial part of the device's processing resources, it may penalize the application processing. The present disclosure proposes different embodiments to optimize the marker list to detect according to the required processing resources for both tasks.

  • Publication number: 20180342104
    Abstract: In a situation where a capturing device is capturing a first image of a scene comprising a display device displaying a second image, a salient idea is to send both the captured first image and the second image, being displayed by the display device to a processing device, for comparatively processing the first and the second image to determine a characteristic associated with the display device. Being able to process the first image (comprising a displayed second image) together with the original second image advantageously allows to determine various characteristics associated with the display device that altered the displayed second image within the first image, making it different from the initial second image. Characteristics associated with the display device are for example a specular reflection occurring on the display device in the scene and disturbing the capture of the scene.

  • Patent number: 10132912
    Abstract: A method, apparatus and system for estimating reflectance parameters and a position of the light source(s) of specular reflections of a scene include RGB sequence analysis with measured geometry in order to estimate specular reflectance parameters of an observed 3D scene. Embodiments include pixel-based image registration from which profiles of 3D scene points image intensities over the sequence are estimated. A profile is attached to a 3D point and to the set of pixels that display its intensity in the registered sequence. Subsequently, distinction is made between variable profiles that reveal specular effects and constant profiles that show diffuse reflections only. Then, for each variable profile diffuse reflectance is estimated and subtracted from the intensity profile to deduce the specular profile and the specular parameters are estimated for each observed 3D point. Then, the location of at least one light source responsible for the specular effects is estimated.
