  • Publication number: 20220196433
    Abstract: Implementations are directed to assigning corresponding semantic identifiers to a plurality of rows of an agricultural field, generating a local mapping of the agricultural field that includes the plurality of rows of the agricultural field, and subsequently utilizing the local mapping in performance of one or more agricultural operations. In some implementations, the local mapping can be generated based on overhead vision data that captures at least a portion of the agricultural field. In these implementations, the local mapping can be generated based on GPS data associated with the portion of the agricultural field captured in the overhead vision data. In other implementations, the local mapping can be generated based on driving data generated during an episode of locomotion of a vehicle through the agricultural field. In these implementations, the local mapping can be generated based on GPS data associated with the vehicle traversing through the agricultural field.

  • Publication number: 20220029663
    Abstract: A communication device includes a donor receiver that receives a first beam of input radio frequency (RF) signals from a base station or a network node. The communication device further includes a service transmitter that transmits a second beam of RF signals in a first radiation pattern to a user equipment (UE). The communication device further includes control circuitry that detects an amount and a direction of echo signals at the donor receiver. The control circuitry applies polarization to the second beam of RF signals transmitted to the UE and calibrates the polarization to minimize the echo signals at the donor receiver. A second radiation pattern is generated for the second beam of RF signals and communicated to the UE based on the calibrated polarization. The communication of the second beam of RF signals in the generated second radiation pattern further reduces the echo signals at the donor receiver.
