Florida Patent of the Month – April 2024

Triangulate Labs Inc. has been granted a patent for a new approach to mapping of the skin. This approach could revolutionize the field of skin imaging with a sophisticated system designed to capture and bio-register imagery of living subjects’ skin. Traditional methods of Total Body Photography (TBP) are time-consuming and costly, limiting their accessibility. Triangulate Labs’ system addresses these challenges by employing cutting-edge technology to streamline the process while enhancing image quality and accuracy.

At the core of the system is a camera equipped with advanced features, including a depth sensor, an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), and a compass or magnetometer. These components work in tandem with a processing unit and a parameterized mathematical model stored in memory to capture images of the subject’s skin with unparalleled precision.

The innovative approach of the system lies in its ability to adapt to the dynamic nature of living subjects. By integrating motion tracking algorithms with the subject’s kinematics and dynamics model, the system compensates for movements and deformations of the skin, ensuring consistent and accurate image capture.

The system’s software utilizes feature detection algorithms, artificial intelligence, and Visual-Inertial Odometry (VIO) to enhance image analysis and interpretation. From detecting body landmarks to estimating camera pose and subject motion, the software optimizes the entire imaging process.

One of the key advantages of Triangulate Labs’ system is its ability to map each image pixel to a coordinate system affixed to the subject’s body. This capability allows for precise localization of skin features and facilitates comprehensive skin evaluation over time.

Triangulate Labs’ invention represents a significant advancement in skin imaging technology. By combining state-of-the-art hardware with intelligent software algorithms, the system offers a cost-effective, efficient, and accurate solution for capturing and analyzing skin imagery in living subjects.
