  • Publication number: 20200112675
    Abstract: A panoramic view system for a vehicle includes at least one real camera (2) for capturing an image of the surroundings of the vehicle from non-centered position, a virtual camera (7), an image processing unit, and a display unit which is configured to represent, in a projected manner, the image captured by the real camera (2) and at least one geometric form (11 to 13) as an overlay over the captured image. The image processing unit is configured to project the captured image onto a first plane (9) perpendicular to the real camera (2) such that perspective distortions in the captured image resulting from the non-centered position of the real camera (2) are distortion-corrected, and to project the at least one geometric form (11 to 13) onto a second plane (10) perpendicular to the virtual camera (7) such that the at least one geometric form (11 to 13) is represented in an undistorted manner on the display unit (4).

  • Publication number: 20190278982
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a method calculates a first color metric value from a detection window in a first image that is detected by a visual system. A second image of pixels is generated where the pixels include one or more second color metric values that meet the first color metric value within a threshold. The method compares the second image to an object. When the comparison meets a criterion, the method transitions from a first mode to a second mode. When the comparison does not meet the criterion, the method continues to operate in the first mode.

  • Publication number: 20160233677
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for controlling a controllable electrical load connected to an electrical distribution system, comprising measuring (401) an electrical voltage signal v in the electrical distribution system, calculating a short term average (402) over a short time period based on the electrical voltage signal and a long term average (403a) over a long time period based on the electrical voltage signal, the long time period being greater than the short time period, and subtracting (406) the short term average from the long term average, said subtraction derives a delta value (407), then multiplying the delta value with a gain factor (420) to get a first desired power consumption, controlling the controllable electrical load according to the first desired power consumption (414). The invention also related to an autonomous voltage load controller.
