  • Patent number: 10976414
    Abstract: A chip-scale coherent lidar system includes a photonic chip that includes a light source, a transmit beam coupler to provide an output signal, and a receive beam coupler to receive a received signal based on a reflection of the output signal by a target. The system also includes a transmit beam steering device to transmit the output signal out of the system, and a receive beam steering device to obtain the received signal into the system. A transmit beam curved mirror reflects the output signal from the transmit beam coupler to the transmit beam steering device. A receive beam curved mirror reflects the received signal from the receive beam steering device to the receive beam coupler. The transmit beam curved mirror and the receive beam curved mirror are formed in a substrate that is heterogeneously integrated with the photonic chip.

  • Patent number: 10970262
    Abstract: In managing multiple versions of triggers, a database system creates a first version of a trigger to apply a first set of actions in response to a first triggering event. The database system also creates a second version of the trigger to apply a second set of actions to the database object in response to a second triggering event. Upon receiving a command to set the current version of the trigger to the second version, the database system sets the second version as the current version of the trigger. When the triggering event of the trigger occurs, the database system determines that the second version is the current version of the trigger, retrieves the second set of actions in the second version, and executes the second set of actions.

  • Publication number: 20210078592
    Abstract: An autonomous vehicle capable of trajectory prediction may include a first sensor, a second sensor, a processor, a trajectory planner, a low-level controller, and vehicle actuators. The first sensor may be of a first sensor type and may detect an obstacle and a goal. The second sensor may be of a second sensor type and may detect the obstacle and the goal. The processor may perform matching on the obstacle detected by the first sensor and the obstacle detected by the second sensor, model an existence probability of the obstacle based on the matching, and track the obstacle based on the existence probability and a constant velocity model. The trajectory planner may generate a trajectory for the autonomous vehicle based on the tracked obstacle, the goal, and a non-linear model predictive control (NMPC). The low-level controller may implement the trajectory for the autonomous vehicle by driving vehicle actuators.

  • Publication number: 20210070859
    Abstract: Provided herein is a method for determining cancer treatment using an immune-modulating therapy in a subject in need thereof. The method comprises assessing whether a lymphatic system in a subject is dysregulated. When the lymphatic system is dysregulated, a treatment for the lymphatic system is determined before a therapeutic amount of an immune-modulating therapy is administered to treat cancer in the subject. Alternatively, when the lymphatic system is dysregulated, an immune-modulating therapy is selected to treat cancer in the subject. The immune-modulating therapy is independent of immune-cell priming, antigen trafficking, antigen presentation, and any combination thereof. The subject may also be treated for cancer accordingly.
