Machine condition assessment through power distribution networks

InactiveUS20100169030A1Eliminate needAlters the current and vibration characteristics of the machineVibration measurement in solidsElectric motor controlEmbedded systemTelecommunications equipment
A device, which is preferably embedded in a power distribution enclosure, enables analysis of conditions of electromechanical machines and, alternatively, also their driven or driver devices. The analysis uses operating voltages and currents supplied to or from the electromechanical machines. Since these voltages and currents are available at the enclosure, wiring or any other communication means to any sensors on the electromechanical machines or on the driver or driven devices are not necessary. The embedded device may optionally transmit its results to a computing or monitoring device remote from the enclosure, preferably wirelessly. The embedded device may receive all its power from an existing, conventional potential transformer in the enclosure, so that the embedded device may be retrofitted to the enclosure without the addition of any wiring external to the enclosure.

System And Method For Camera Imaging Data Channel

A system and method for using cameras to download data to cell phones or other devices as an alternative to CDMA / GPRS, BlueTooth, Infrared or cable connections. The data is encoded as a sequence of images such as 2D bar codes, which can be displayed in any flat panel display, acquired by a camera, and decoded by software embedded in the device. The decoded data is written to a file. The system and method meet the following challenges: (1) To encode arbitrary data as a sequence of images. (2) To process captured images under various lighting variations and perspective distortions while maintaining real time performance. (3) To decode the processed images robustly even when partial data is lost.

Controllable track-skipping

InactiveUS20030018797A1Good estimateRestricting skipping moreTelevision system detailsAnalogue secracy/subscription systemsComputer programDigital Millennium Copyright Act
A method, system, and computer program product allow users to skip and / or to fast-forward through media items such as songs, while limiting the extent to which skipping is allowed in order to maintain conformance with sound performance complement restrictions such as those specified by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. If the user requests a skip that may result in a DMCA violation, the skip is disallowed and the request is denied. Playlists are constructed so that the sound recording performance complement limitations are applied to a longer time period than the period specified in the DMCA, the longer time period being defined by adding an "excess time" to the normal DMCA period. If the user attempts to skip a song or song portion that would cause the aggregated skipped amount to exceed the excess time, the skip is disallowed.

Uplink timing synchronization and access control for a multi-access wireless communication system

Improved timing synchronization and access control techniques for use in an orthogonal frequency division multiplexed (OFDM) wireless system or other type of wireless communication system. In accordance with the invention, an uplink synchronization and access control system is provided in which mobile stations transmit certain timing and access signals in dedicated intervals in an uplink stream. Access control is illustratively implemented as a two-stage process in which a given mobile first transmits a generic uplink access signal in one of the intervals. If this access is accepted, the base station transmits an access acknowledgment containing initial timing and power corrections, along with initial channel assignments on which the mobile can initiate a call set-up process. For re-synchronization, mobiles transmit timing synchronization signals in the dedicated timing and access intervals. The base station measures the arrival time of the signals, and sends back appropriate timing corrections. The invention thereby ensures that orthogonality between mobiles is maintained.

The toothbrushing pattern analyzing/correcting device of the present invention includes: a body part formed in the same direction as a toothbrush surface; a sensing unit having a sensor with at least one or more axes for sensing a user's toothbrushing motion and a sensor with one or more axes for sensing two or more toothbrushing positions; and a controller for operating signals input from the sensing unit to classify a user's toothbrushing motion into at least two or more patterns and at least two or more toothbrushing parts. Further, the toothbrushing pattern analyzing/correcting method includes the steps of: detecting the start of a user's toothbrushing; displaying a guiding screen in response to the start of a user's toothbrushing; detecting a user's toothbrushing pattern; analyzing the user's detected toothbrushing pattern; and providing a toothbrushing correction screen with the intention of increasing compliance in accordance with the analyzed result. Accordingly, toothbrushing behavior correction compliance can be further enhanced with a method of interactively correcting a user's toothbrushing behavior through multimedia image substances in real time, and more systematic management and health consultation are possible by building a database of information of the user's toothbrushing behavior.

Method and apparatus for coordination of motion determination over multiple frames

PCT No. PCT / EP96 / 01272 Sec. 371 Date Nov. 21, 1997 Sec. 102(e) Date Nov. 21, 1997 PCT Filed Mar. 22, 1996 PCT Pub. No. WO96 / 29679 PCT Pub. Date Sep. 26, 1996The present invention concerns improved motion estimation in signal records. A method for estimating motion between one reference image and each frame in a sequence of frames, each frame consisting of a plurality of samples of an input signal comprises the steps of: transforming the estimated motion fields into a motion matrix, wherein each row corresponds to one frame, and each row contains each component of motion vector for each element of the reference image; performing a Principal Component Analysis of the motion matrix, thereby obtaining a motion score matrix consisting of a plurality of column vectors called motion score vectors and a motion loading matrix consisting of a plurality of row vectors called motion loading vectors, such that each motion score vector corresponds to one element for each frame, such that each element of each motion loading vector corresponds to one element of the reference image, such that one column of said motion score matrix and one motion loading vector together constitute a factor, and such that the number of factors is lower than or equal to the number of said frames; wherein the results from the Principal Component Analysis on the motion matrix are used to influence further estimation of motion from the reference image to one or more of the frames.

Network management method

The present invention provides a method in which the physical connection information and the logical network configuration information are kinked to the status of spanning tree, and the status of spanning tree is displayed with the physical connection and the logical network configurations. The method can provide the better recognition about not only intended the physical and logical configurations but the status of spanning tree to a network administrator. Therefore, the network administrator can integrally recognize the status of the network and the failure in the network will be analyzed easily to recover the network to normal state in shorter time.

Video processing

A method for generating a desired view of a real scene from a selected desired viewpoint by identifying objects in a real image, determining the positions of the identified objects, and rendering a view of the scene from a selected viewpoint using image data from the real image to render at least some of the identified objects. Other portions of the rendered view can be rendered using other source data which may be generic or historic. Identified objects may be tracked over a period of time to determine a trajectory or path. A user interface can be provided to assist in object tracking. A number of cameras can be used to provide a number of real images, and certain cameras may be controlled using the parameters of other cameras.

Physical resynthesis of a logic design

A multiple-pass synthesis technique improves the performance of a design. In a specific embodiment, synthesis is performed in two or more passes. In a first pass, a first synthesis is performed, and in a second or subsequent pass, a second synthesis or resynthesis is performed. During the first synthesis, the logic will be mapped to for example, the logic structures (e.g., logic elements, LUTs, synthesis gates) of the target technology such as a programmable logic device. Alternatively a netlist may be provided from a third party. Before the second synthesis, a fast or abbreviated fit may be performed of the netlist to a specific device (e.g., specific programmable logic device product). Before the second synthesis, the netlist obtained from the first synthesis (or provided by a third party) is unmapped and then the second synthesis is performed. Since a partial fit is performed, the second synthesis has more visibility and optimize the logic better than by using a single synthesis pass. After the second synthesis pass, a more detailed fit is performed.

Methods for analyzing and compressing multiple images

A multi-temporal, multi-angle, automated target exploitation method is provided for processing a large number of images. The system geo-rectifies the images to a three-dimensional surface topography, co-registers groups of the images with fractional pixel accuracy, automates change detection, evaluates the significance of change between the images, and massively compresses imagery sets based on the statistical significance of change. The method improves the resolution, accuracy, and quality of information extracted beyond the capabilities of any single image, and creates registered six-dimensional image datasets appropriate for mathematical treatment using standard multi-variable analysis techniques from vector calculus and linear algebra such as time-series analysis and eigenvector decomposition.
