  • Publication number: 20200397347
    Abstract: A method for estimating a pose of an oral hygiene device including a pattern and a plurality of groups of visual markers relative to a location includes (i) receiving image data reproducible as an image of at least a portion of the oral hygiene device; (ii) analyzing the image data to identify a region of interest within the image; (iii) identifying, using at least one of the one or more processors, all candidate visual markers within the region of interest; (iv) obtaining a first proposed three-dimensional pose of the oral hygiene device; (v) validating the first proposed three-dimensional pose of the oral hygiene device; and (vi) obtaining a second proposed three-dimensional pose of the oral hygiene device based on the validated first proposed three-dimensional pose.

  • Publication number: 20200336705
    Abstract: A system comprising a mirror having a first side and second side, the mirror permitting a first portion of light incident on the first side to transmit therethrough and permitting a second portion of the incident light to reflect therefrom; an electronic display positioned adjacent to the second side of the mirror such that the electronic display is at least partially visible through the first side of the mirror responsive to the electronic display being at least partially activated; one or more sensors positioned generally about a periphery of the mirror configured to detect a presence and relative location of an object positioned adjacent to the first side of the mirror; a light source configured to emit light and at least partially aid in illuminating the object responsive to the object being adjacent to the first side of the mirror; and a camera configured to detect the object.

  • Publication number: 20200229585
    Abstract: A method for promoting compliance with an oral hygiene regimen includes displaying, on a display device, a representation of at least a portion of a set of teeth of a user. The method also includes overlaying an indicium on the representation such that the indicium is associated with a first section of the representation. Responsive to a determination, via at least one of one or more processors, that a head of an oral hygiene device is positioned directly adjacent to a first section of the set of teeth that corresponds to the first section of the representation for at least a predetermined amount of time, the indicium is removed from the display device.

  • Publication number: 20200179089
    Abstract: Oral hygiene monitoring system is disclosed to track motion and orientation of an oral hygiene device. The control system may process data output from a motion sensor to determine position and orientation of an oral hygiene device with respect to a user's mouth. In some examples, the system may use machine learning techniques to identify position and orientation, brush stroke type, and other specific actions.

  • Publication number: 20190083215
    Abstract: Tooth brushing monitoring system is disclosed that includes an oral hygiene device with a separate an optical sensor to track positional changes of the oral hygiene device. The optical sensor may alone or in combination with motion sensor data determine position and orientation of an oral hygiene device with respect to a user's mouth. The system may then determine the quality, quantity and location of brushing and provide feedback on the quality of brushing. This feedback provides motivation for users to increase their brushing habits, leading to a decrease in plaque, tooth decay and gingivitis.
