  • Publication number: 20240205465
    Abstract: Segments of code are provided, configured to cause a camera of a device to in real time, take a sequence of images of a subject, the device being a computer that is a portable telephone device, having memory and a processor, and having the camera and a display, the sequence of images being stored. Segments of code are also provided that are configured to cause detecting of portions from each of the sequence of images, the portions corresponding to an object of the subject having features moving in time. The computer-readable media may be the memory of the device, wherein the code is executable by a controller provided in the device. The object in one aspect is a human face. Segments of code may also be provided that are configured to cause the device identifying, for each of plural images within the sequence, a set of object features from the detected portions. The device determines and defines movements of the object features.

  • Publication number: 20220176950
    Abstract: Tools are provided to assisting in the driving of a given vehicle in motion. Various examples are provided related to systems and methods for managing operation of a vehicle. In one example, among others, a system includes one or more transducer arrays installed on a vehicle; a controller; at least one image pickup sensor; a diagnostic engine; and a display. The one or more transducer arrays can detect an object present within a detection area external to the vehicle. The controller can generate an object detection signal in response to detection of an object within a detection area. The diagnostic engine can monitor one or more attributes of a plurality of transducer elements of the one or more transducer arrays. The display can display object detection messages associated with the object detection signal, display images captured by the image pickup sensor, and/or receive user input via a user interface.

  • Publication number: 20210323543
    Abstract: Tools are provided to assisting in the driving of a given vehicle in motion. Memory and a processor are provided. The processor is configured and interoperable with the memory, a transducer driver, and the given vehicle's driving control system. An object transducer carried by the given vehicle is driven in order to detect another moving vehicle in a detection area at a detection distance away from the given vehicle. Notification messages sent from other vehicles are received. The notification messages include a too close notification message sent from one of the other vehicles. A determination is made, based at least in part on the too close notification message sent from the one of the other vehicles, when the given vehicle is positioned in relation to the other moving vehicle such that the given vehicle should be driven differently. The given vehicle automatically takes remedial action upon the determination that the given vehicle is too close to the other moving vehicle.
