Application: Control system for an augmented reality device (Patent ID: US20230377471A1)

The patent filed by Koninklijke Philips NV describes a control system for an augmented reality device that assists users in selecting physical objects matching reference objects. The system utilizes a processor subsystem to analyze video streams from the device's field of view, determine the user's workflow, identify reference objects, and generate augmented reality content indicating the reference content. The system can apply video classification algorithms, assess visibility and lighting conditions, and guide users through sequences of augmented reality content.

Additionally, the control system can recognize tools, hand tools, devices, and body parts as reference objects, as well as instruction images. It can generate content based on the user's actions, such as selecting a physical object or transitioning to the next step in a workflow. The system can also detect the presence or absence of reference objects in the field of view, respond to changes in the user's actions, and display reference content only in specific areas. The patent also covers a control method for the augmented reality device and a computer-readable medium containing instructions for performing the method.
