With these latest US patents, titled “System and Method for Obtaining Optimal Focus of an Image-Capturing Device” innovated by Krithika Gurumurthy, and “Wide-Angle Streaming Multi-Camera System” innovated by Balasubramanium G, the company now proudly holds a total of ten US patents, underscoring e-con’s commitment to advancing technology and innovation.
Patent 1 – System and Method for Obtaining Optimal Focus of an Image Capturing Device
This patent introduces a groundbreaking system and method for obtaining optimal focus of an image-capturing device. The innovation includes:
Optimal Focus across the Entire Frame: Ensuring that the entire frame is in optimal focus for various embedded vision applications.
Unique Reference Frames: Employing unique reference frames collected from the camera to obtain the best-focused image.Sound Notification: A remarkable feature of this system is the sound notification modules that notifies users when the focus range is achieved.
Patent 2 – Wide-angle streaming multi-camera systemThis patent introduces a wide-angle streaming multi-camera system that significantly enhances the field of view. The innovation includes:Extended Field of View: Providing a broader Horizontal Field of View (HFOV) of 180 degrees, as well as an extended Vertical Field of View (VFOV).Reduction of Blind Spots: Multiple cameras are strategically positioned to reduce blind spots, and parallax errors, thereby achieving multi-camera streaming in closer working regions.Vertical FoV Enhancement: To further expand the VFOV, all cameras are rotated 90 degrees around their optical axis, providing a wider view.
It is a game-changer for various applications such as sports broadcasting and analytics, surround-view monitoring systems, data processing using panoramic images, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), traffic management, and security and surveillance.
