  • Patent number: 10092181
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for imaging multiple retinal structures and montaging of multiple retinal images are provided. The method involves cross-correlating images from different imaging channels to compensate for intra-frame distortion due to retinal movement during image acquisition, and conducting a second cross-correlation to filter out any motion artifacts in the images. The resultant images are combined to generate a composite image. The method also involves controlling light directed on the retina spatially and temporally.

  • Publication number: 20180234362
    Abstract: An enhanced instant messaging processing method is presented to users in an instant messaging communication environment. For a user having two or more communication terminals that have logged into a same instant messaging account of the user, a communication server monitors invitations sent to the instant messaging account. Responsive to one communication terminal responding to the invitation and the type of the response, the communication server generates a response policy for each of other communication terminals of the user, where the response policy optimizes the instant communication performance and enhances the user experience. The disclosed embodiments also support simultaneous instant communications among a large number of users connected to multiple data processing servers.

  • Publication number: 20180199477
    Abstract: A system places a pin into at least one hole on an article. The system generally includes a moveable base on which the article is located, a press head for holding and inserting the pin into the hole, a first vision system to capture a first image of a designated hole on the article, and a second vision system to capture second and third images of the held pin relative to the press head respectively from two vantage points. A computing unit is configured to assign a relative coordinate consisting of a X-value and a Y-value being correspondingly indicative to an actual location of the hole, compute relative deviations presented between the held pin and the designated hole, and move the base to adjust the article in a manner correcting or compensating for the computed deviation prior to inserting the held pin into the hole.

  • Publication number: 20180194095
    Abstract: A platform for constraining a workpiece includes x-y stage connected to a base, wherein the x-y stage includes a floor and a y-axis datum and a x-axis datum aligned along a first axis and a second axis perpendicular to the first axis, respectively, and a primary constraint mechanism on the x-y stage. The primary constraint mechanism includes an x-axis wedge, a primary y-axis wedge and a primary z-axis clamp, and a primary linear actuator with a rod extendable and retractable parallel to the second axis. A primary linear actuator slides the x-axis wedge away from the x-axis datum, slides the primary y-axis wedge away from the y-axis datum, and rotates the primary z-axis clamp away from the workpiece. The primary z-axis clamp is attached to a cam with a pinion gear that engages a rack gear connected to the rod of the primary linear actuator.

  • Publication number: 20180193901
    Abstract: An automated pin anvil press for connecting a workpiece pair at a plurality of pin locations with a plurality of pins includes a platform, an anvil paired with a puncher, and a position control camera capable of taking position alignment images. The platform includes a base, an x-y stage including a floor with a central opening and a y-axis datum and a x-axis datum aligned along a first axis and a second axis perpendicular to the first axis, respectively, and a primary constraint mechanism on the x-y stage wherein activation of the primary constraint mechanism constrains at least one of the workpiece pair on the x-y stage. The platform also includes x-axis and y-axis carriages connecting the x-y stage to the base, wherein activation of an x-axis actuator connected to the x-axis carriage moves the x-y stage parallel to the first axis.
