  • Patent number: 10410314
    Abstract: A cross fader circuit that receives first raw image data and second raw image data and outputs blended raw image data. The cross fader circuit includes a first scaling circuit, a second scaling circuit, and an alpha blender. The first scaling circuit downscales first raw image data captured by a first sensor with a first field of view to match a size of a blending window. The second scaling circuit upscales second raw image data to match the size of a canvas window that encloses the blending window. The second raw image data may be a cropped version of raw image data captured by a second sensor of a second field of view wider than the first field of view. An alpha blender circuit generates a blended raw image data matching the size of the canvas window from the downscaled first raw image data and upscaled second raw image data.

  • Patent number: 10321127
    Abstract: Various corporate, industry, and regulatory guidelines, best practices and standards are used in establishing acceptable levels of accuracy for volume dimensioning systems used in commerce. A volume dimensioning system can determine at least one distortion value that is indicative of an amount of distortion present in the system and responsive to the amount of distortion, autonomously alter or adjust the units of accuracy of information reported by the system. Such alteration or adjustment of units of accuracy may be performed based on an assessment of the distortion relative to a number of distortion thresholds. Responsive to the assessment, the volume dimensioning system can adjust a unit of accuracy in a representation of volume dimensioning related information.

  • Patent number: 10101891
    Abstract: Implementations relate to computer-assisted cropping of an image. A computer-executed method includes receiving user input indicative of a change in size of a crop window from a first size to a second size, where the crop window is displayed over an image in an image editing user interface. The method detects that the crop window of the second size has an aspect ratio within a threshold range of a predetermined aspect ratio. In response to the detection, the method resizes the crop window to a third size, where the crop window of the third size has a resized aspect ratio substantially the same as the predetermined aspect ratio.
