Two of e-con’s dedicated engineers, Krithika Gurumurthy and Balasubramanium G, have received Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
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 system
This 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, parallax errors, thereby achieving the multi camera streaming in closer working region.
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.
