  • Publication number: 20220383146
    Abstract: A method is provided for training a machine-learning algorithm which relies on primary data captured by at least one primary sensor. Labels are identified based on auxiliary data provided by at least one auxiliary sensor. A care attribute or a no-care attribute is assigned to each label by determining a perception capability of the primary sensor for the label based on the primary data and based on the auxiliary data. Model predictions for the labels are generated via the machine-learning algorithm. A loss function is defined for the model predictions. Negative contributions to the loss function are permitted for all labels. Positive contributions to the loss function are permitted for labels having a care attribute, while positive contributions to the loss function for labels having a no-care attribute are permitted only if a confidence of the model prediction for the respective label is greater than a threshold.

    Abstract: Systems, methods, tangible non-transitory computer-readable media, and devices associated with object association and tracking are provided. Input data can be obtained. The input data can be indicative of a detected object within a surrounding environment of an autonomous vehicle and an initial object classification of the detected object at an initial time interval and object tracks at time intervals preceding the initial time interval. Association data can be generated based on the input data and a machine-learned model. The association data can indicate whether the detected object is associated with at least one of the object tracks. An object classification probability distribution can be determined based on the association data. The object classification probability distribution can indicate a probability that the detected object is associated with each respective object classification.
