  • Publication number: 20200107723
    Abstract: A reflectometry instrument includes a light source for emitting an illumination beam that illuminates the macula. A portion of the illumination beam is reflected from the macula and forms a detection beam. The detection beam is indicative of macular pigment in the macula. The instrument also includes a first mirror for reflecting the illumination beam toward the macula and for reflecting the detection beam from the macula. The instrument is configured so that the illumination beam and the detection beam remain separated between the macula and the first mirror.

  • Patent number: 10606884
    Abstract: Techniques for generating representative images are disclosed herein. In particular, various embodiments utilize an image generation service to generate representative images for categories and sub-categories of objects. Each representative image can be a stylized depiction of an aggregated image corresponding to a particular category of objects. A user can refine the search, or continue to browse, by selecting one of the representative images. This enables users to quickly identify features the user is looking for or would like to exclude, by depicting the sort of objects associated with that category.

  • Publication number: 20200044922
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, apparatus, article of manufacture, method and/or computer program product embodiments, and/or combinations and sub-combinations thereof, for automatically determining the functionality and capabilities of electronic components. Some embodiments operate by transmitting a command to the display device in question (sometimes called the device under test—DUT—herein) and monitoring the device. Then, it is determined whether an action by the display device was one of a set of proper responses to the command. If the action was proper, then it is determined that the display device supports the command set associated with the command. The command set may be the Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) set, although this disclosure is not limited to that example.
