  • Patent number: 11368616
    Abstract: A vehicle display control device is configured to perform operations including: performing processing for hindering visual recognition of an occupant of a vehicle on a captured image captured by an image-capturing device; generating a display image; acquiring information indicating a state of the vehicle and information regarding a surrounding environment of the vehicle; and determining whether the vehicle is in a first condition. In a case where it is determined that the vehicle is in the first condition, a display image obtained by prohibiting application of the processing to the captured image or by reducing an application degree of the processing is generated, and is displayed by the display device.

  • Publication number: 20220011195
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure describe a method for estimating mode field distribution in optical fibers from guided acoustic-wave Brillouin scattering wherein light for which the optical mode-field distribution is determined remains in the optical fibers and the distribution is made for light inside the fiber, and not at a fiber/air interface or other perturbation points to the fiber resulting in a more accurate representation of the optical mode-field distribution in the fiber. Since light is always in the fiber during the determination, no complicated fiber preparation steps or procedures are required and the mode-field distribution is determined as an average distribution along the length of the fiber under test.
