  • Publication number: 20220027731
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described herein for real-time data processing and for emergency planning. Scenario test data may be collected in real-time based on monitoring local or regional data to ascertain any anomaly phenomenon that may indicate an imminent danger or of concern. A computer-implemented method may include filtering a plurality of different test scenarios to identify a sub-set of test scenarios from the plurality of different test scenarios that may have similar behavior characteristics. A sub-set of test scenarios is provided to a trained neural network to identify one or more sub-set of test scenarios. The one or more identified sub-set of test scenarios may correspond to one or more anomaly test scenarios from the sub-set of test scenarios that is most likely to lead to an undesirable outcome. The neural network may be one of: a conventional neural network and a modular neural network.

  • Patent number: 10677932
    Abstract: According to the embodiments provided herein, a trajectory determination device for geo-localization can include one or more relative position sensors, one or more processors, and memory. The one or more processors can execute machine readable instructions to receive the relative position signals from the one or more relative position sensors. The relative position signals can be transformed into a sequence of relative trajectories. Each of the relative trajectories can include a distance and directional information indicative of a change in orientation of the trajectory determination device. A progressive topology can be created based upon the sequence of relative trajectories; this progressive topology can be compared to map data. A geolocation of the trajectory determination device can be determined.
