  • Patent number: 10362941
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for performing registration of medical images includes mapping a virtual coordinate system used by a first medical apparatus and a virtual coordinate system used by a second medical apparatus to one another. The coordinate systems are associated with a real-time medical image captured by the first medical apparatus and a three-dimensional (3D) medical image previously captured by the second medical apparatus, respectively. The method further includes detecting a position of a probe of the first medical apparatus from a coordinate system used by the second medical apparatus, based on a result of the mapping, determining a volume image corresponding to the detected position of the probe from the previously captured 3D medical image, and extracting from the determined volume image a cross-sectional image corresponding to the real-time medical image, where the real-time medical image changes according to a patient's physical movement.

  • Patent number: 10279806
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a lane estimating apparatus and method. The apparatus includes: a lane determiner, an obstacle position calculator, a vehicle position corrector, and a lane estimator. The lane determiner compares a first lane detected by a first sensor with a lane on an actual road or a second lane on a local map to determine reliability of the first lane. The obstacle position calculator detects, when the reliability of the detected first lane is less than a preset reference, a first obstacle in the vicinity of a vehicle and a second obstacle on the local map, and calculates a difference between slopes and positions of straight lines extracted from the first obstacle and the second obstacle. The vehicle position corrector corrects a heading direction and a position of the vehicle based on the difference between the slopes and positions of the straight lines. In addition, the lane estimator estimates a driving lane on the local map.

  • Publication number: 20180162388
    Abstract: An apparatus for preventing a pedestrian collision accident, a system having the same, and a method thereof are provided. The apparatus includes a pedestrian sensing unit that senses a pedestrian moving into a dangerous area and calculates velocity and direction information of the pedestrian. A communication unit transmits the velocity and direction information of the pedestrian to a surrounding vehicle. A time-to-collision (TTC) calculating unit calculates a TTC using velocity and direction information of a subject vehicle and second velocity and direction information of the pedestrian, when the TTC calculating unit receives the second velocity and direction information of the pedestrian from another vehicle. A controller outputs based on the TTC a warning to a driver of the subject vehicle or the pedestrian.
