  • Publication number: 20200064856
    Abstract: The technology relates to detecting and responding to sounds for a vehicle having an autonomous driving mode. In one example, an audible signal corresponding to a sound received at one or more microphones of the vehicle may be received. Sensor data generated by a perception system of the vehicle identifying objects in an environment of the vehicle may be received. A type of sound may be determined by inputting the audible signal into a classifier. A set of additional signals may be determined based on the determined type of sound. The sensor data may be processed in order to identify one or more additional signals of the identified set of additional signals. The vehicle may be controlled in the autonomous driving mode in order to respond to the sound based on the one or more additional signals and the type of sound.

    Abstract: The technology relates to detecting and responding to processions. For instance, sensor data identifying two or more objects in an environment of a vehicle may be received. The two or more objects may be determined to be disobeying a predetermined rule in a same way. Based on the determination that the two or more objects are disobeying a predetermined rule, that the two or more objects are involved in a procession may be determined. The vehicle may then be controlled autonomously in order to respond to the procession based on the determination that the two or more objects are involved in a procession.

  • Publication number: 20200058019
    Abstract: Approaches presented herein provide for the management of viewership data, including contractual terms and transaction history, through immutable distributed ledgers, such as blockchain. Temporary identifiers can be used to store viewership data for a viewer to one of these public, distributed ledgers. A physical device identifier is associated with a media device. An identity manager generates and rotates temporary public identifiers that are mapped to the physical identifier of the device. Viewership data from the device and the related temporary identifiers are stored on the public distributed ledger. The identity manager receives a contract to provide viewership data of media device over a particular period. The identity manager supplies the temporary identifiers of the media device over the period specified.

  • Patent number: 10539959
    Abstract: The technology relates to detecting a person directing traffic. For instance, a first vehicle may be controlled in an autonomous driving mode. Sensor data is received from a perception system of the first vehicle, the sensor data identifying a person. Behavior of the person is observed using the sensor data. The observed behavior of the person and the observed behavior of a second vehicle are used to determine a likelihood value indicative of whether the person is directing traffic. The first vehicle is maneuvered in the autonomous driving mode based on the determined likelihood value.

  • Patent number: 10496692
    Abstract: Technologies are disclosed herein for resource tagging, grouping and associated functionality. A resource tagging service allows resource tags to be created and associated with computing resources in a service provider network. The resource tags can be utilized to search, collect, filter, organize and otherwise manage computing resources in the service provider network having matching tags, and/or to perform other types of functionality. A resource groups service allows customers and/or other users of the service provider network to view and access collections of computing resources that share common resource tags and/or other attributes. Resource groups can also be evaluated in order to identify computing resources in a service provider network for which certain types of actions or other functionality is to be performed. Membership of resource groups can also be evaluated over time and inferences can be drawn from the membership and from operational information associated with the member computing resources.

  • Publication number: 20190355251
    Abstract: The technology relates to detecting and responding to emergency vehicles. This may include using a plurality of microphones to detect a siren noise corresponding to an emergency vehicle and to estimate a bearing of the emergency vehicle. This estimated bearing is compared to map information to identify a portion of roadway on which the emergency vehicle is traveling. In addition, information identifying a set of objects in the vehicle's environment as well as characteristics of those objects is received from a perception system is used to determine whether one of the set of objects corresponds to the emergency vehicle. How to respond to the emergency vehicle is determined based on the estimated bearing and identified road segments and the determination of whether one of the set of objects corresponds to the emergency vehicle. This determined response is then used to control the vehicle in an autonomous driving mode.
