  • Patent number: 9824434
    Abstract: A system for object recognition includes an image/spectrum sensing device, to fetch an object image from a real object and sense spectra at sensing regions of the real object. A fetching module obtains a real-object image feature pattern for each ROI of the object image. An analyzing module for object image feature searches for a first candidate object from data bank and analyzes a correlation between the real object and candidate object. A fetching module for object spectrum feature obtains a real-object spectrum pattern for each ROI of the object image. An analyzing module for object spectrum feature is to search for a second candidate object from data bank and to further analyze a match level between the real-object and the second candidate object. A fusion module further analyzes information of image feature and spectrum feature find whether or not having a matched object as an identify object.

  • Patent number: 9192299
    Abstract: A health check evaluation indicator building method includes the following steps. A visualization process is performed to produce source graphic data on a plurality of features and attributes according to a time series, wherein each of the source graphic data includes a group number. Then, a similarity comparison is performed between the source graphic data and a plurality of target graphic data with the same group number to produce a plurality of similarity scores, where the minimum thereof corresponds to role model graphic data. Based on the role model graphic data, one of a best proposal and an alternative proposal is selected and a result thereof is fed back after execution. A health check evaluation indicator building system and a computer readable medium to embody the above method are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20150164343
    Abstract: Management systems and methods for managing physiology data measurement are provided. First, physiology data input is received. Next, a measurement schedule is obtained according to the physiology data input, wherein the measurement schedule includes a measurement frequency and at least one measurement time point corresponding thereto. Thereafter, at the measurement time point, physiology data measurement is performed to obtain a measured value. The measurement frequency and/or the measurement time point of the measurement schedule is dynamically updated based on the measured value and a predefined abnormality determination criterion and subsequent measurements are to be performed with the updated measurement frequency and/or the measurement time point.
