  • Patent number: 11127170
    Abstract: A drone is used to map difficult transition spaces within buildings such as staircases between different levels of a multi-level building. The mapping technique used may vary based on the type of building space. For instance, for linear staircases, an orthogonal trajectory path or a smooth trajectory path may be used to map the transition space. The orthogonal trajectory path and the smooth trajectory path may be derived, at least in part, on initial and terminating points provided by a user. For circular staircases, a user may move the drone from the initial point to the terminating point, and the drone may determine a trajectory path based on the user's movement of the drone from the initial point to the terminating point.

  • Patent number: 11113864
    Abstract: A set of 3D user-designed images is used to create a high volume of realistic scenes or images which can be used for training and testing deep learning machines. The system creates a high volume of scenes having a wide variety of environmental, weather-related factors as well as scenes that take into account camera noise, distortion, angle of view, and the like. A generative modeling process is used to vary objects contained in an image so that more images, each one distinct, can be used to train the deep learning model without the inefficiencies of creating videos of actual, real life scenes. Object label data can be generated for each distinct image. This and other methods can be used to artificially create new scenes that do not have to be recorded in real-life conditions and that do not require costly and time-consuming, manual labelling or tagging of objects.

  • Patent number: 11107445
    Abstract: A system, method and computer readable medium to render, as a single image, source data from a network of data providers, that provide source data of a respective data type. A composition space contains two-dimensional (2D) display surfaces to which the source data is provided from the data providers, and transformation operator surfaces, which are located at different positions in a depth direction than the 2D display surfaces. Each of the transformation operator surfaces represent a respective visual transformation operation on surfaces of the 2D display surfaces that are positioned at lesser depths than the transformation operator surface. Using data-centric communication, updates are published to the 2D display surfaces, the updates including the source data from the data providers, and, upon detecting an update to a subscribed 2D display surface, the subscribed 2D display surface is rendered as the single image by performing the visual transformation operations.
