  • Patent number: 7697725
    Abstract: In one embodiment, the present invention is a method and apparatus for autonomous object tracking. In one embodiment, a method for tracking a moving object across at least a portion of a video signal made up of a plurality of image frames includes stabilizing the video signal by processing selected portions of selected image frames, detecting at least one movement in the stabilized video signal, and computing a location of the detected movement(s).

  • Publication number: 20090030118
    Abstract: The invention relates to charged bituminous mastics that are used in industrial applications, particularly in the manufacture of indoor or outdoor coatings used for sealing and/or damping vibrations and/or thermal insulation and/or soundproofing and/or fire protection (fire-proofing). The aim of the invention is to provide a mastic which is deformation-resistant when thermally charged and which is also static in ambient temperature conditions prevailing during laying and when ambient temperature is 40° C., which also holds well when cold, offering good dimensional stability. In order to achieve said aim, styrene-indene copolymer resin having a Tg of 40-150° C. and a penetrability at 50° C. of ?10 is used as a structuring agent A of a bituminous mastic comprising bitumen B, a charge C and a polymer D.

  • Publication number: 20080308007
    Abstract: The invention concerns a method for preparing a bitumen base, including the following essential steps: a) introducing a bitumen in a container equipped with mixing means, and bringing the bitumen to a temperature of 120° C. to 300° C.; b) introducing at least one chemical blowing additive into the container, and mixing, said chemical blowing additive being of general formula Ar1-R—Ar2 (1) wherein Ar1 and Ar2 independently of each other represent a benzene ring or a system of condensed aromatic rings of 6 to 20 carbon atoms, substituted by at least one hydroxyl group, and R represents an optionally substituted divalent radical, whereof the main chain comprises 6 to 20 carbon atoms and at least one amide and/or ester group. The invention also concerns a bitumen base obtained by implementing said method, as well as the use of such bitumen bases in road surfacing and industrial applications.
