Ranging methods for inclined shooting of projectile weapons


A method for shooting a projectile weapon involves determining the inclination of a line of sight from a vantage point to a target and a line-of-sight range to the target, then predicting a trajectory parameter at the line-of-sight range, for a preselected projectile. Using the trajectory parameter, an equivalent horizontal range may then be determined, wherein the equivalent horizontal range is the range at which the trajectory parameter would be expected to occur if the projectile were shot from the vantage point toward a theoretical target located in a horizontal plane intersecting the vantage point.

Drive mechanism for movable mirror of camera


A movable-mirror drive mechanism of a camera includes a main mirror held by a main-mirror holding frame rotatable between a viewfinder light-guiding position and a retracted position; a sub-mirror held by a sub-mirror holding frame that is rotatably supported by the main-mirror holding frame, wherein the sub-mirror holding frame is positioned in a jutting-out position when the main mirror is in the viewfinder light-guiding position, and the sub-mirror holding frame is retracted with the main mirror when the main mirror is in the retracted position; and a vibration control member which rotates in association with rotation of the main-mirror holding frame and holds the sub-mirror holding frame in the jutting-out position to prevent the sub-mirror holding frame from rotating toward the sub-mirror retracted position when the main mirror rotates to the viewfinder light-guiding position.. .

Payment card ocr with relaxed alignment


Extracting financial card information with relaxed alignment comprises a method to receive an image of a card, determine one or more edge finder zones in locations of the image, and identify lines in the one or more edge finder zones. The method further identifies one or more quadrilaterals formed by intersections of extrapolations of the identified lines, determines an aspect ratio of the one or more quadrilateral, and compares the determined aspect ratios of the quadrilateral to an expected aspect ratio.

Extracting card data from multiple cards


Extracting financial card information with relaxed alignment comprises a method to receive an image of a card, determine one or more edge finder zones in locations of the image, and identify lines in the one or more edge finder zones. The method further identifies one or more quadrilaterals formed by intersections of extrapolations of the identified lines, determines an aspect ratio of the one or more quadrilateral, and compares the determined aspect ratios of the quadrilateral to an expected aspect ratio.
