Koninklijke Philips N.V. is a Dutch diversified technology company headquartered in Amsterdam with primary divisions focused in the areas of Healthcare, Consumer Lifestyle and Lighting. It was founded in Eindhoven in 1891 by Gerard Philips and his father Frederik. It is one of the largest electronics companies in the world and employs around 122,000 people across more than 60 countries.Philips is organized into three main divisions: Philips Consumer Lifestyle , Philips Healthcare and Philips Lighting. As of 2012 Philips was the largest manufacturer of lighting in the world measured by applicable revenues. In 2013, the company announced the sale of the bulk of its remaining consumer electronics operations to Japan's Funai Electric Co but in October 2013, the deal to Funai Electric Co was broken off and the consumer electronics operations remain under Philips. Philips said it would seek damages for breach of contract in the $200-million sale.Philips has a primary listing on the Euronext Amsterdam stock exchange and is a constituent of the AEX index.

The present invention relates toa system (34)for detecting variation of heart rate,HR, of a user(14), said system comprising an optical sensing unit (12) for measuring a heartbeat-related optical signal of said user(14) over time, a processing unit (20) for deriving an HR-variation signal from said heartbeat-related optical signal, an analyzing unit (22) for comparing said derived HR-variation signal to a reference HR range, and an initiating unit (26) for initiating a process for measuring an informative heartbeat-related signal of said user (14) depending on said comparing of said analyzing unit (22).


An HDMI transmitter inserts an additional video line in the video frame to be transmitted via the HDMI interface and inserts auxiliary data related to the video frame in the additional video line. The auxiliary data is related to the video frame and as the auxiliary data is stored in the video frame itself it is transported in a synchronous fashion with the video frame. As the additional video line is in excess to the number of video lines defined by a standard video frame format they are ignored by existing receivers yet available to receivers according to the invention and can be transmitted using the existing HDMI standard.


The present invention relates to a heating device (100, 200) for heating food (4) in a container (3), in particular milk in a baby bottle. The heating device comprising a chamber (1) configured to contain a fluid (2) and to receive the container (3), a heating unit (5) for heating the fluid, a temperature measuring element (8) for measuring the temperature of the fluid (2) over time to obtain a temperature profile (300) over time, and a controller (6) for controlling the heating unit (5) based on the obtained temperature profile of the fluid.

A system for providing navigational guidance to a sonographer acquiring images is disclosed. The system may providehaptic feedback to the sonographer. The haptic feedback may be provided through an ultrasonic probe or a separate device. Haptic feedback may include vibrations or other sensations provided to the sonographer. The system may analyze acquired images and determine the location of acquisition and compare it to a desired image and a location for obtaining the desired image. The system may calculate the location for obtaining the desired image based, at least in part, on the acquired image. The system may then provide the haptic feedback to guide the sonographer to move the ultrasonic probe to the location to acquire the desired image.
