  • Patent number: 11450084
    Abstract: A method includes receiving a directive from a user to find an object in a geographical area, wherein the object is identified with an input label selected from a set of labels, obtaining sensor data in response to the directive for a real world physical object in the geographical area using one or more sensors, processing the sensor data with a plurality of automatic target recognition (ATR) algorithms to assign a respective ATR label from the set of labels and a respective confidence level to the real world physical object, and receiving modeled relationships within the set of labels using a probabilistic model based on a priori knowledge encoded in a set of model parameters. The method includes inferring an updated confidence level that the real world physical object actually corresponds to the input label based on the ATR labels and confidences and based on the probabilistic model.

  • Patent number: 11427444
    Abstract: A cable rotation blocking system (CRBS) (300) is described herein. The CRBS extends along an axis X between a first end (305) and a second end (303), and comprises a first section provided at the first end (305), the first section being configured to be connectable to a cable (100). The CRBS further comprises a second section provided at the second end (303), the second section being configured to be attachable to a load. With the CRBS described herein, when no load, or a load up to an upper load threshold is attached to the second section, the second section is rotatable about the axis X, relative to the first section, however, when a load higher than the upper load threshold is attached to the second section, the second section is prevented from rotation about the axis relative to the first section.
