  • Patent number: 10692197
    Abstract: Computer-implemented systems and methods herein disclose automatic haze correction in a digital video. In one example, a video dehazing module identifies a scene including a set of video frames. The video dehazing module identifies the dark channel, brightness, and atmospheric light characteristics in the scene. For each video frame in the scene, the video dehazing module determines a unique haze correction amount parameter by taking into account the dark channel, brightness, and atmospheric light characteristics. The video dehazing module applies the unique haze correction amount parameters to each video frame and thereby generates a sequence of dehazed video frames.

    Abstract: A system for and method of improving fluid flow is provided. The system includes a discharge manifold defining a primary flow path partially obstructed by one or more flow diverter. The flow diverter includes an obtrusion pair, each obtrusion of the obtrusion pair extending from a rear wall of the discharge manifold into an interior area of the discharge manifold, thereby creating a void along the primary flow path. The system further includes a first nozzle extending through the primary flow path and into the void such that a nozzle inlet of the first nozzle is positioned at least partially within the void. The system further includes a plurality of subsequent nozzles, each of the first and subsequent nozzles defining a respective secondary flow path for directing fluid away from the discharge manifold. The method includes utilizing obtrusion pairs to reduce or eliminate hydraulic skip.

  • Patent number: 10576994
    Abstract: Autonomous systems, such as vehicles being operated in a self-driving mode, may allow for human occupants to be inattentive to the operation of the system. However, events may occur that require a human user to perform an action. Systems and method are provided that enable an autonomous system to determine whether the system requires, or will require, a user action and whether the user is or is not attentive. If an action is required and the human is not attentive, an alerting protocol is executed to cause the system to perform actions that enable the user to be alerted, such as to enable the, now attentive, user to be able to perform the action.

  • Publication number: 20200012434
    Abstract: A production host for hosting virtual machines includes a persistent storage a backup storage client, and a production agent. The persistent storage stores data associated with a portion of the virtual machines. The backup storage client provides access to second data associated with a second portion of the virtual machines stored in a backup storage. The production agent identifies an instant access request for a virtual machine and, in response to identifying the instant access request, generates instant access virtual machine data in the backup storage using a portion of the second data associated with the virtual machine; locally mounts the generated instant access virtual machine data; locally instantiates the virtual machine using the instant access virtual machine data; and executes the instantiated virtual machine using the instant access virtual machine data.

  • Publication number: 20190329729
    Abstract: An autonomous vehicle or self-driving vehicle can protect persons from accidents. When the occupants of a vehicle exit the vehicle, those occupants can be endangered by the driving environment. Thus, while the occupants are outside the vehicle, the vehicle can continue to monitor the environment and provide warnings or intercept other vehicles or objects that may impact the occupants. Once all occupants have exited the vehicle, the vehicle's systems can continue to track each person around the vehicle and may engage, in limited maneuvers, to shield the pedestrians around the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20190186939
    Abstract: Systems of an autonomous vehicle and the operations thereof are provided. The vehicle can predict a user's trip using his or her history of past trips, the relevant context, and the current environmental conditions. The navigation system of the vehicle can use historical GPS data, defined by the sequence of position measurements, of a given vehicle to determine frequently visited locations. Then, the navigation system may augment the learned knowledge of frequently visited locations and routes with the relevant context and environmental conditions to make recommendations on the locations the user is most likely to visit and the route most likely to drive on. More specifically, the navigation system can automatically cluster historical trips by similarity (e.g., trips with similar contexts and/or environmental conditions), while identifying, mitigating, and/or eliminating the potential for statistical outliers (trips taken by a driver that are infrequent and thus less useful for predicting future trips).

  • Publication number: 20190130038
    Abstract: A network crawler crawls one or more media sites to extract a plurality of titles for information contained in the one or more media sites. For example, the network crawler may extract the titles on the one or more media sites by identifying different computer formats and converting the titles in the different computer formats into a common computer format for comparison. User profiles which, includes user's interest are stored in a user profile interest database. A novel personalized news recommendation engine recommends news similar to the interest specified in a user profile, where maximum weighted matching is applied to score the similarity of news against user interest in the word2vec space.

  • Publication number: 20190107406
    Abstract: Systems of an electrical vehicle and the operations thereof are provided. Electric vehicles may be routed from a start location to a destination through a network of charging stations explicitly considering time-varying uncertainty in both charging times, queueing times, and range. The routing objective may be a function of trip duration, electric vehicle state of charge at any time or location along the trip, uncertainty in the vehicle state of charge, the estimated trip duration, etc. Uncertainty in a distribution may be computed using an information-theoretic metric such as entropy. Waiting times may be estimated at an electric vehicle charging station given observed data for that station. An estimated waiting time at a charging station can be communicated directly to the owner of an electric vehicle owner or used to design a robust system for routing through charging stations.

  • Patent number: 10234302
    Abstract: The systems and methods described herein can be applied to a vehicle equipped with a sensor suite that can observe information about a location, for example, a traffic light duration. The system can record information, e.g., the traffic light colors, duration of color changes, and location of the traffic lights and can upload this information to the cloud. Then, the system can augment or learn about the location, e.g., learning of traffic patterns, and store the augmented data as database-based information, where available. The learned information can help a requesting vehicle to better estimate an estimated time of arrival (ETA) for common routes taken, provide more accurate ETAs based on historical knowledge, and/or calculate or provide alternative route information.

  • Publication number: 20190041228
    Abstract: The systems and methods described herein can be applied to a vehicle equipped with a sensor suite that can observe information about a user, for example, a driver or passenger, within a vehicle. The system can determine a action being conducted by a user or an event associated with the user. Then, the navigation system can augment or learn what type of route or conditions allows the user to conduct the action or event. From the learned information, the navigation system can determine a route that best assists with the action or event regardless of whether the route is the shortest or quickest. As such, the vehicle tailors the chosen navigation route based on the user's conditions or circumstances rather than the driving environment.
