  • Patent number: 11370422
    Abstract: A method for improving prediction results of advanced driver assistance systems of a vehicle includes obtaining map data including information about a road geometry in a proximity of the vehicle. A sensor means is assigned, sensing a surrounding of the vehicle. A virtual sensing means output is generated, corresponding to an output of the sensing means if the sensing means. The generation is based on a mathematical model of the sensing means. The surrounding of the vehicle is sensed, and a sensing means output is generated. The sensing means output is compared to the virtual sensing means output. Parameters of the mathematical model are modified, and the virtual sensing means output are generated and compared to the sensing means output. Map data is combined with information derived from the sensing means output to generate combined information, which is output for further processing.

  • Publication number: 20220179077
    Abstract: A method for the supplementary detection of objects by a LIDAR system. The LIDAR system is configured to scan a solid angle range to carry out a primary distance determination method for surroundings objects. An emitter unit emits at least one laser beam in a solid angle strip of the solid angle range, laser light reflected from surroundings objects being received by a detector unit to ascertain the distance and the position of surroundings objects with the aid of the primary distance determination method. The method includes: scanning the entire solid angle range and subsequently generating a two-dimensional intensity distribution of the detected signal light. This is followed by generating a corrected two-dimensional intensity distribution by removing blooming signals and analyzing the corrected two-dimensional intensity distribution for the supplementary detection of surroundings objects in addition to the primary distance determination method.

  • Patent number: 11188679
    Abstract: The invention regards a method and system for recording observation data without violating privacy. Environment is sensed and observation data including information on the sensed environment is generated. The observation data is processed for determining presence of one or more persons in the sensed environment. Those person(s) amongst the present person(s) that did not agree to store their private data are identified and privacy compliant observation data is generated by obfuscating the private data of these persons. The privacy compliant observation data is store for later use.

  • Publication number: 20210253989
    Abstract: A method, and also a gas supply system without a separate humidifying apparatus, for supplying gas to a plurality of bioreactors, divides a constant gas stream with high distribution accuracy into a plurality of gas substreams having a mandated volume flow, which can be kept constant at the mandated level even when during gas supply there is fluctuation in the opposing pressure in the gas line to the respective bioreactor, and decouples a gas distribution from the opposing pressure by hydrostatic pressure compensation, with the gas distribution at the same time producing an obligatory humidification of the gas stream.

  • Patent number: 10973486
    Abstract: Presented herein are systems and methods that provide for automated analysis of three-dimensional (3D) medical images of a subject in order to automatically identify specific 3D volumes within the 3D images that correspond to specific organs and/or tissue. In certain embodiments, the accurate identification of one or more such volumes can be used to determine quantitative metrics that measure uptake of radiopharmaceuticals in particular organs and/or tissue regions. These uptake metrics can be used to assess disease state in a subject, determine a prognosis for a subject, and/or determine efficacy of a treatment modality.

  • Publication number: 20210093249
    Abstract: Presented herein are systems and methods that provide for automated analysis of medical images to determine a predicted disease status (e.g., prostate cancer status) and/or a value corresponding to predicted risk of the disease status for a subject. The approaches described herein leverage artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze intensities of voxels in a functional image, such as a PET image, and determine a risk and/or likelihood that a subject's disease, e.g., cancer, is aggressive. The approaches described herein can provide predictions of whether a subject that presents a localized disease has and/or will develop aggressive disease, such as metastatic cancer. These predictions are generated in a fully automated fashion and can be used alone, or in combination with other cancer diagnostic metrics (e.g., to corroborate predictions and assessments or highlight potential errors). As such, they represent a valuable tool in support of improved cancer diagnosis and treatment.

  • Publication number: 20210072229
    Abstract: Systems and methods for evaluating one or more characteristics or parameters of a material, such as a soft material (e.g., hydrogel, human cell, UV-curable polymer, etc.). Methods include incorporating a plurality of magnetic nanowires into the material to form a test solution. The test solution is subjected to a magnetic field. A change in the magnetic nanowires in response to the magnetic field is recorded. A characteristic of the material is determined based upon the recorded change. In some embodiments, the applied magnetic field causes the magnetic nanowires to rotate from an initial orientation to a stimulated orientation, with the change in orientation being indicative of a stiffness (e.g., internal stiffness) of the material.

  • Publication number: 20200245960
    Abstract: Presented herein are systems and methods that provide for automated analysis of three-dimensional (3D) medical images of a subject in order to automatically identify specific 3D volumes within the 3D images that correspond to specific anatomical regions (e.g., organs and/or tissue). Notably, the image analysis approaches described herein are not limited to a single particular organ or portion of the body. Instead, they are robust and widely applicable, providing for consistent, efficient, and accurate detection of anatomical regions, including soft tissue organs, in the entire body. In certain embodiments, the accurate identification of one or more such volumes is used to automatically determine quantitative metrics that represent uptake of radiopharmaceuticals in particular organs and/or tissue regions. These uptake metrics can be used to assess disease state in a subject, determine a prognosis for a subject, and/or determine efficacy of a treatment modality.

  • Patent number: 10521010
    Abstract: The invention relates to a system and a method for haptic interaction with virtual objects. The system of the invention is based on the idea that, for the haptic representation of any virtual three-dimensional object—synchronized with the visual representation—only the tangible haptic characteristics of the surface area of the object at the collision point or the area of contact are important. The haptic display system (morphling) of the invention that displays these characteristics comprises in principle three functional groups, which operate in synchronism with one another and with a visual subsystem. The individual subsystems can be operated statically or dynamically. In dynamic operation, users can change the position and/or shape, for example, of the tactile display by touching it. With regard to the real-time representation of the three-dimensional data of the user, at least the body part that is interacting with the object, e.g.
