  • Patent number: 9359146
    Abstract: Monitoring system for a conveyor of articles (100). The conveyor of articles comprises at least one transport chain (105) adapted to be moved along a movement direction, and a guide structure (132) of the transport chain comprising a lower guide element (135) adapted to support the chain from below and a higher guide element (140) adapted to insist on the chain from above and facing toward the lower guide element. The system comprises at least one first magnetic field generator element (155) located in a first guide element, at least one magnetic field sensor (160) located in a second selected guide element for sensing the magnitude of a measure magnetic field, and processing means (165) for quantifying a reduction of the overall thickness of the chain based on a time variation of the measure magnetic field.

  • Publication number: 20150086181
    Abstract: A method is described for recording a video. The method comprises receiving one or more user content and then providing a 3D virtual world and a virtual camera having one or more parameters. The optimal 3D flight path of the virtual camera is then determined based on the user content and the virtual camera is then allowed to travel along the optimal 3D flight path and to record the video.

  • Publication number: 20110298799
    Abstract: A method for replacing an object in an image is disclosed. The method comprises obtaining a first image having a first object. The first image is two-dimensional while the first object has feature portions. The method also comprises generating first image reference points on the first object and extracting object properties of the first object from the first image. The method further comprises providing a three-dimensional model being representative of a second image object and at least one of manipulating and displacing the three-dimensional model based on object properties of the first object. The method yet further comprises capturing a synthesized image containing a synthesized object from the at least one of manipulated and displaced three-dimensional model, the synthesized object having second image reference points and registering the second image reference points to the first image reference points for subsequent replacement of the first object with the synthesized object.

  • Publication number: 20110227923
    Abstract: With the ubiquity of new information technology and media, face and facial expression recognition technologies have been receiving significant attention. For face recognition systems, detecting the locations in two-dimension (2D) images where faces are present is a first step to be performed. However, face detection from a 2D image is a challenging task because of variability in imaging conditions, image orientation, pose, presence/absence of facial artefacts facial expression and occlusion. Existing efforts to address the shortcomings of existing face recognition systems involve technologies for creation of three-dimensional (3D) models of a human subject's face based on a digital photograph of the human subject. However, such technologies are computationally intensive nature and susceptible to errors and hence might not be suitable for deployment.
