SVI Begins Development of Multi-Modal Dual Chirp FMCW 4D LiDAR System for Remote ID and Threat Detection Using Heartbeat, Breathing Rate and Gait Following Issuance of Key Patent

SVI Begins Development of Multi-Modal Dual Chirp FMCW 4D LiDAR System for Remote ID and Threat Detection Using Heartbeat, Breathing Rate and Gait Following Issuance of Key Patent

Calabasas, CA,  – StereoVision Imaging, Inc. (SVI), a leader in facial/object recognition and remote sensing technology, has begun the development of a portable system that can identify individuals and threats at long distances using its patented eye-safe laser technology to detect biometric signatures that include breathing, heartrate and gait.

The initiation of this development process follows the United States Patent and Trademark Office granting SVI patent no. 9,872,639 covering key aspects of this uniquely capable technology. The patent is one of more than 100 worldwide patents and patents pending issued to SVI covering its field-proven and uniquely capable technology. The development of this highly valuable IP that now comprises 26 patent families has been the result of more than $100 million invested in R&D over the last 11 years.

The exceptional resolution and high fidelity of SVI’s dual chirp 4D FMCW LiDAR, which is currently in use by the company’s commercial entry system, CES-S400™, has the proven ability to make highly accurate, instantaneous sub-millimeter measurements of a person or objects range and velocity.

The CES-S400 is considered to be the world’s longest-range commercial biometric identification system, capturing 2D, 3D and 4D facial data to identify targets at standoff distances at unprecedented tactical ranges.  This core technology has also been licensed by U.S. government intelligence agencies for use in acoustics surveillance, such as for covert, standoff voice detection even through glass windows.

To complement its advanced 4D scanning and 3D modeling of subjects for facial recognition, SVI will apply its technical superiority and patented technology to detect skin vibrations in major arterial regions, allowing the real-time measure of an individual’s heartrate at range. Advanced algorithms convert high-fidelity 4D point cloud data into a unique cardiac signature. Breathing rates can also be determined simultaneously using a similar methodology.

In addition to a variety of medical diagnostic applications, the ability to accurately detect heart and respiratory rates without contact can be used to enhance insider threat detection at a distance, such as at security entry points.

Heart rate variability and changes in respiratory rates are typical indicators of stress, so individuals at entry checkpoints showing rates outside their normal ranges can be identified and potentially pulled aside for secondary security screening. SVI researchers have already benchmarked an initial prototype for prospective customers that has provided proof-of-concept.

This ability of the CES-S400 to identify, track, and scan non-cooperative individuals for facial recognition, and now heart rate and breathing, can also be expanded to scan the individual’s entire body. This would allow measurements of the extremely minute differences in an individual’s walking gait.

The gait can be analyzed and characterized in 3D to extract baseline ambulatory patterns. Any changes in these patterns can indicate that a scanned individual could be concealing a threat.  When combined with other modalities such as heartrate variability and compared to an individual’s baseline biometrics via a facial recognition database, any meaningful changes in these biometrics can be used to trigger flags for additional secondary screenings.

“To the best of our knowledge, SVI is the only 4D LiDAR company with proven patented technology for remotely monitoring cardiovascular and breathing signals,” said Gregory Steinthal, president of SVI. “With this technology we plan to create an unmatched solution for addressing the most challenging of security entry applications, as well as for medical and other important applications.”

SVI’s technology works exceptionally well in real world situations regardless of a subject’s movement, pose, expression and surrounding lighting conditions. It can overcome occlusions, such as beards, sunglasses, or a vehicle windshield. Its further detection of heart and breathing rate, eye movement and speech can provide indications of alertness, psychological condition or intent.

Also on SVI’s product technology roadmap is the development and the realization of SVI’s 4D FMCW LiDAR intellectual properties on a single silicon photonic chip, which is expected to dramatically lower the cost, size and power requirements when integrating multi-modal technology into various new SVI products and third-party systems.

StereoVision Imaging, Industry Leader in 4D FMCW LiDAR Technology, Adds Five New Continuation Patents to Extensive IP Portfolio

StereoVision Imaging, Industry Leader in 4D FMCW LiDAR Technology, Adds Five New Continuation Patents to Extensive IP Portfolio

StereoVision Imaging, Inc. (SVI) has been granted four new continuation patents by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and one new continuation patent issued by the European Patent Office. The patents build and expand upon the company’s extensive patent portfolio focused on biometric/object recognition and remote sensing technology.  

The result of more than $100 million invested in R&D over the last 10 years, the new issuances bring SVI’s patent portfolio to 61 patents issued worldwide, with 46 patents pending across 24 patent families. They provide further protection for SVI’s Mil-Spec, field-proven and uniquely capable technology as it launches a new commercialization campaign.

“These new patents both continue and broaden the protection of our technology portfolio focused on detecting and measuring moving objects in real world situations,” commented SVI president, Gregory Steinthal. “These latest patents include changes that greatly expand the scope of the protections compared to the original related patents. They place SVI in an exceptionally secure position as we commercialize our IP portfolio of over 100 patents and patents pending, which includes potentially partnering with those who are infringing.”

“There have been a number of major investments or IPOs announced recently at multimillion to multibillion-dollar valuations, particularly in the autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicle space, involving the use of coherent FMCW LiDAR,” continued Steinthal. “As the owner of the first patents in the dual chirp 4D FMCW LiDAR space, we believe that we have established the furthest reaching IP portfolio for determining range and velocity, and we plan on exploiting this advantage fully.”

The new patents primarily relate to the application of frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) LiDAR technology that can be used for biometric measurement, identification and security, as well as other fields of use, such as autonomous vehicles, medical biometric monitoring, robotics, and mobile devices.

The five new patents cover a range of applications and benefits across several of the company’s 26 patent families:

Dual Chirp FMCW LiDAR (U.S. patent no. 10,578,738): Covers a laser-based radar system that uses two or more laser beams to improve speed and accuracy when determining the range and velocity of a distant target. It supports instantaneous per pixel velocity measurement and multibeam LiDAR applications by modulating the beam or “chirping” in a unique fashion using two or more chirps to accurately measure the Doppler shift or changes in the frequency of the beam reflected off a target that are caused by the target in motion.

Video Stream Improvements (patent no. 10,796,417): Using change detection between video frames, improvements are made to a video stream resulting in more accurate facial matching.

Eye Tracking (U.S. patent no. 10,791,925): Using the position information of the face as provided by detection and ranging systems, such as by radar or LiDAR, eyeball detection and motion tracking information is determined.

Determining Range Through Transparent Surfaces Such as Glass (U.S. patent no. 10,761,210): Supports determining the distance to an object even through transparent surfaces, such as glass windows or vehicle windshields.

Fusion of FMCW LiDAR with Video (European patent no. 2399150B): A system that uses range and Doppler velocity from LiDAR along with images from video to estimate the six degree-of-freedom trajectory of a target.

SVI’s technology is currently in use globally for biometric facial recognition in military applications. Having now established an extensive portfolio of patent-protected IP around FMCW LiDAR, the company sees a “blue ocean” of potential commercial sector uses, including autonomous vehicles, industrial metrology, and any application where instantaneous, sub-millimeter accurate measurements of the size, distance and movement of objects, even at long ranges, are required. The company is now focused on commercializing its IP in these additional potentially highly lucrative markets.

For more than the last 10 years, SVI has been operating under a stealth U.S. military-funded facial recognition project. It has become the sole-source supplier to the U.S. Army of an advanced Facial Recognition Binocular System (FRBS) used by U.S. war fighters in the field. The company recently announced a new follow-on order that brought the total value of units purchased by the military to more than $4.5 million.

Since SVI was granted a commercial export license by the U.S. Commerce Department, the company has initiated the development of products for use in the commercial sector and has signed a number of IP licenses with strategic partners.

“In addition to introducing our own products, we look forward to entering into additional strategic licensing agreements to develop our dual chirp 4D FMCW LiDAR to its fullest commercial potential,” added Steinthal. “Our full family of LiDAR technology IP presents an attractive licensing opportunity to potential partners and supports our recently launched commercial product roll-out.”

SVI has conducted an extensive ‘Freedom to Operate’ (FTO) analysis of its Dual Chirp FMCW LiDAR patent family. Typically a lengthy and expensive process, especially for large patent portfolios, an FTO analysis determines whether a technology of interest infringes any patent owned by another party. It helps to mitigate the risk of potentially infringing on third-party patents when going to market, as well as helps identify potential infringement by others. It also facilitates product development by informing design changes necessary to avoid identified patent barriers. This helps to provide assurances to current and potential IP licensee and strategic partners.

SVI Granted Additional FMCW LiDAR-Based Patents

CALABASAS, Calif.Oct. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — StereoVision Imaging, Inc. (SVI), a defense contractor and global leading developer of high-performance mid-range multi-modal (2D/3D) facial recognition systems, is significantly growing its U.S. and international patent portfolio related to the use of Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) LiDAR technology for biometrics and other fields of uses such as self-driving cars.  With over 100 worldwide patents and patents pending, SVI announced today an issuance of eight (8) additional continuation patents to its arsenal.

The core of SVI’s intellectual properties (IP) surrounds its patented ability to instantaneously determine range and velocity of moving targets.  “This is of particular importance,” says Gregory Steinthal, Founder and President of SVI “in the detection of moving faces or objects and  critical information to eliminate all six degrees of freedom  associated with a moving target resulting in a static, rigid template required for proper 3D facial or object recognition.  The extensive patent portfolio that we have amassed has also created a significant value proposition in the self-driving car industry. This same technology is absolutely crucial to instantly recognize other vehicles or objects moving towards them allowing for faster and more accurate decision making efforts to avoid collisions.”

Conventional FMCW LiDAR systems are typically limited in various aspects of operation. For example, these conventional systems are not able to provide range and/or range rate information instantaneously based on the target signal or unambiguously determine distance and velocity. These conventional systems are limited in other ways as well. These limitations may be exacerbated by various operating conditions such as, for example, target acceleration toward or away from the LiDAR sensor that use mirrors or lens to scan the target at high speeds or other operating conditions.

Motion of the object toward or away from the FMCW LiDAR sensor, of course, Doppler-shifts the return signal.  SVI’s novel patented approach utilizes multiple beams of light from one or more laser sources to determine at least two independent motion aspects of the target. The beams of light are up-chirped and down-chirped respectively i.e. in a dual chirp fashion to remove the Doppler affect.  Solving these two or more simultaneous measurements allows for faster and more accurate instantaneous determination of range and velocity measurements versus the traditional sequential approach.

Further this approach removes certain temporal affects associated with single beam systems. This same technology can be utilized to remotely detect physiological functions such as breathing and heart rates as well as can be used for acoustic surveillance and fused with video to reduce computational overhead.

SVI’s technology and growing patent portfolio are becoming more well-known, especially to strategic corporate partners.
