  • Publication number: 20200234579
    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.

  • Publication number: 20200221198
    Abstract: An audio device with charging contacts on a printed circuit board (PCB) is described herein. In some implementations, the charging contacts are on a surface of the PCB that is a bottom external surface of the audio device, thereby eliminating the need for a custom connector block. Thus, cost and height savings can be realized. In some implementations, the charging contacts are designed to enable 360 degree docking ability with a charging dock. This can be achieved using one or more ring-shaped charging contacts that make physical contact with spring-loaded pins on the charging dock in any relative axial alignment. In some implementations, the audio device includes a mating feature configured to mate with a mating feature of the charging dock to help ensure a proper charging connection is made and to help physically center the audio device relative to the charging dock.
