  • 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.

  • Patent number: 10570010
    Abstract: The various technologies presented herein relate to formation of carbon micromechanical systems (CMEMS), wherein the CMEMS comprise multiple layers of carbon structures and are formed using a plurality of photoresist precursors that are processed to form carbon. The various embodiments can be utilized in producing a plurality of CMEMS with full production level fabrication, e.g., 6 inch wafers can be processed. A pyrolyzed layer of carbon is lithographically defined after pyrolysis, wherein the post-pyrolysis etch process can produce carbon structures having repeatable and accurate device geometries, with straight sidewalls. A sacrificial layer can be applied to facilitate separation of a first carbon layer from a second carbon layer, wherein, upon pyrolysis to form the second carbon layer and lithography thereof, the sacrificial layer is removed to form a CMEMS comprising a first carbon layer (e.g., comprising bottom contacts) located beneath a second carbon layer (e.g., a mechanical layer).

  • Patent number: 10574685
    Abstract: A system, method, and device are presented for assessing a target network's vulnerability to a real cyberthreat based on determining policy-based synthetic tests configured to model the behavior of the cyberthreat. Real-time feedback from the target network (e.g., servers, desktops, and network/monitoring hardware and/or software equipment) are received, analyzed, and used to determine whether any modifications to the same or a new synthesized test is preferred. The technology includes self-healing processes that, using the feedback mechanisms, can attempt to find patches for known vulnerabilities, test for unknown vulnerabilities, and configure the target network's resources in accordance with predefined service-level agreements.
