Application: Systems, apparatus, and methods for occupancy tracking using augmented reality (Patent ID: US20230394874A1)

The patent filed by The Boeing Co. describes systems, apparatus, and methods for occupancy tracking using augmented reality. The technology involves detecting faces in image data generated by sensors in an environment, associating virtual objects with these faces, and determining occupancy metrics based on the virtual objects associated with facial units defined in the image data. The apparatus includes memory, instructions, and processor circuitry to perform these functions, allowing for accurate tracking of occupants in a given environment.

Furthermore, the patent outlines various claims related to the apparatus, including displaying virtual objects overlaying facial units in image frames, classifying facial units based on reference data, generating virtual objects with different characteristics based on classifications, and determining occupancy metrics by analyzing multiple virtual objects associated with different facial units. The technology is particularly useful for applications in air vehicles, where the occupancy metric can provide valuable insights into the number and distribution of occupants in the cabin. Overall, the patent highlights a sophisticated system that leverages augmented reality for efficient and accurate occupancy tracking in various environments.
