  • Publication number: 20200118292
    Abstract: A system for automated geospatial image analysis comprising a deep learning model that receives orthorectified geospatial images, pre-labeled to demarcate objects of interest. The module presents marked geospatial images and a second set of unmarked, optimized, training geospatial images to a convolutional neural network. This process may be repeated so that an image analysis software module can detect multiple object types or categories. The image analysis software module receives orthorectified geospatial images from one or more geospatial image caches. Using a multi-scale sliding window submodule, image analysis software scans geospatial images, detects objects present and geospatially locates them.

  • Patent number: 10601007
    Abstract: The invention relates to a cooling plate (10) for battery cells (40), wherein the cooling plate (10) is in the form of a mounting plate and has mounting elements (12) for directly mounting the cooling plate (10) into a motor vehicle. It is further necessary for the cooling plate (10) together with a housing (20), in particular a half-shell housing, to form a closed-off space (30) for accommodating battery cells (40). The invention further relates to battery cells (40), to a battery cell module and also to a motor vehicle having a battery cell module of this kind.

  • Patent number: 10424944
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for automatically regulating an electric output which is dispensed by a secondary battery that has at least two battery cells, wherein the charge states of all the battery cells are repeatedly detected at time intervals, an average charge state (SOCaverage) is ascertained per battery cell from the detected charge states of the battery cells, a deviation of at least one charge state of a battery cell from the average charge state (SOCaverage) is detected, and the average charge state (SOCaverage) and the deviation are taken into consideration during the automatic and dynamic regulation of the electric output dispensed by the secondary battery.

  • Publication number: 20180366704
    Abstract: The invention relates to a battery module housing (2001, . . . 2004) for a battery pack (10), characterized in that: the battery module housing (2001, . . . 2004) can contain a large number of battery cells (100111, . . . 100432) which each have a large wall surface (1201, 1202) and a small wall surface (1301, 1302), of which small wall surface the surface area is less than a surface area of the large wall surface (1201, 1202), wherein the battery cells (100119, 100129, 100132, 100142, 100219, 100229, 100232, 100242, 100319, 100329, 100332, 100342, 100419, 100432) which can be arranged adjacent to outer sides of the battery pack (10) can be oriented in such a way that their large wall surfaces (1201, 1202) run along the outer sides, so that a force which acts on one of the outer sides can initially be received by one of the large wall surfaces (1201, 1202), and also to a battery module (201, 204), to a battery (10), to a battery, to a vehicle and also to a method for producing a battery module (201, . . .

  • Patent number: 10147980
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for managing a battery comprising a plurality of battery cells, wherein a maximum value of a current that can be delivered by the battery is adjusted on the basis of a frequency distribution (44) of a root mean square current delivered by the battery. The invention further relates to a battery management system and a computer program for carrying out said method as well as to a motor vehicle comprising a battery which includes a battery management system of said type.
