A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11922667B2) discloses an object region identification device that utilizes advanced computer vision technology. The device comprises a memory storing computer program code and a processor to execute the code. The device acquires temporally successive frame images, identifies objects in the images, acquires position and motion information, generates region information in the subsequent frame, and processes the identified region using image processing techniques. The device also includes training capabilities to improve object identification accuracy based on the generated region information.

Furthermore, the patent describes an object region identification method and a computer-readable medium storing a program for the same. The method involves acquiring successive frame images, inputting them to a model for object identification, acquiring position and motion information, generating region information in the subsequent frame, and processing the identified region using image processing. The method also includes features to enhance object identification accuracy based on the position information and motion information acquired. The computer-readable medium stores a program that enables a computer to perform the steps of the object region identification method, providing a practical implementation of the innovative technology described in the patent.
