|Method and device for compression of an image signal and corresponding decompression|
A method compresses, into a compressed image signal, an initial image signal including a sequence of pixels having respective amplitudes of plural digital color components. The method includes, for each color component, subdividing the sequence into several groups of several adjacent pixels, and for each group of a portion of the groups, generating a sequenced set of pixels for the group by a monotone sequencing of the pixels of the group as a function of amplitudes of the color component, and approximating amplitudes of the color component of the pixels of the set by a monotone approximation function with one variable related to positions of the pixels in the set.

|Surgical microscope with positioning aid|
A microscope comprises an imaging system comprising an objective having an objective lens and producing a magnified image of a focal plane of the imaging system, an image sensor disposed in the focal plane and outputting an electrical signal to the controller, and a display communicating with the controller. The controller converts signals of the image sensor into digital single images of the object, outputs the same to the display, detects a displacement of the microscope transverse to an optical axis of the objective lens relative to an object imaged, and compares the displacement with a threshold.
|Apparatus and detecting clock tampering|
Disclosed is a method for detecting clock tampering. In the method a plurality of resettable delay line segments are provided.
|Locating technique and apparatus using an approximated dipole signal|
Location determination is performed using a transmitter including an elongated generally planar loop antenna defining an elongation axis. The elongation axis is positioned along at least a portion of a path.
|Method and processing time series data|
The present invention relates to processing of time series data. There is disclosed a method and apparatus for processing time series data, the method comprising: receiving a time series data set, wherein each element of the time series data set contains a timestamp and an original value associated with the timestamp, and times represented by all timestamps constitute a time series having fixed time intervals; converting each original value into a coded value occupying a smaller storage space, according to a predetermined monotone numerical compression coding scheme; dividing the times represented by all timestamps into a plurality of time intervals having a predetermined length; assembling coded values corresponding to all timestamps within each time interval into a data package such that the data package contains coded values arranged in an order of timestamps; and storing in a database record each data package and its associated identification of a time interval..
|Signature processing system, key generation device, signature device, verification device, signature processing method, and signature processing program|
The object is to provide an attribute-based signature scheme which is flexible in the design and which supports a non-monotone predicate. An access structure is constituted by applying the inner-product of the attribute vectors to a non-monotone span program.
|Generating monotone hash preferences|
Selecting a resource to fulfill a resource requirement is disclosed. For each resource requirement, a resource-specific affinity value is computed with respect to each of a plurality of resources.
|Method and combining images of a graphic user interface with a stereoscopic video|
The present invention relates to a method for combining images of a graphic user interface with a stereoscopic video content. The latter comprises at least a pair of video images intended respectively for a right and a left eye, while the graphic user interface comprises at least a pair of graphic images.
|Using multiple waveforms from a coherent ladar for target acquisition|
In one aspect, a method includes transmitting a tone waveform from a laser detection and ranging (ladar) sensor, detecting a target using an echo of the tone waveform reflected from the target, determining a radial velocity of the target using the echo of the monotone waveform from the target, transmitting, from the ladar sensor, linear frequency modulation (fm) chirp signals and determining a range to target using to echoes from the linear fm chirp signals.. .
Method to restore edges in rasterized images
Restoration of edges in rasterized, continuous tone images includes selection of a pair of neighbouring pixels that exchange a restoration value to make a steeper transition from a low value on one side of a boundary between the two pixels to a high value at the other side thereof. Although any pair of neighbouring pixels is selected, this operation is only performed when four pixels in a direction perpendicular to the boundary, of which the selected pair form the two center pixels, have a monotonely increasing value.
Position detecting unit, lens unit and camera furnished with same, lens unit manufacturing method, and position detecting method
Position detection unit detecting absolute positions without moving an object to be detected. The detection unit having a first sensor for outputting a monotone signal, that changes in response to displacement of an object to be detected; a second sensor for outputting two sinusoidal signals in response to displacement of the object to be detected; a first memory for storing a monotone signal relative to the position of the object to; a second memory for storing max and min values for each sinusoidal signal; and a position calculator for identifying the cycle of the sinusoidal signal in which the object to be detected is positioned based on the detected monotone signal and stored monotone signal data, and for calculating the position of the object to be detected within the identified cycle and obtaining an absolute position, based on the detected sinusoidal signal and the stored max/min data..
