  • Publication number: 20200272144
    Abstract: An unmanned aerial system includes a remote controller device and an unmanned aerial vehicle. A user input on the remote controller device indicates a flight command requested by a user. The remote controller device determines a current position and/or orientation of the remote controller device in response to the flight command from the user. The current position and/or orientation is sent to the vehicle. The vehicle responsively determines a desired orientation of the unmanned aerial vehicle as a function of the current position and/or orientation of the remote controller device and operates a lift mechanism to execute a flight operation based on the desired orientation of the unmanned aerial vehicle and the current position of the remote controller device.

  • Publication number: 20200257299
    Abstract: An autonomous vehicle that automatically responds to an emergency service vehicle. Perception data is captured or received by the autonomous vehicle (AV) cameras, sensors, and microphones. The perception data is used to detect lanes in a road, generate a list of objects, classify one or more of the objects, and determine a state for the classified objects. In response to detecting an emergency service vehicle such as a law enforcement vehicle, a responsive action may be planned by the AV. The responsive action may include sending an acknowledgement signal, notifying passengers of the AV, generating a planned trajectory based on the emergency service vehicle location, an emergency service vehicle detected intention, and other information. A safety check may be performed, and commands may be generated by a control module to navigate the AV along the planned trajectory. The commands may then be executed by a DBW module.

    Abstract: A power supply system includes a wireless power supply end and a wireless receiving end. The wireless receiving end includes a resonant receiving component and a rectifying and voltage-stabilizing component that is connected to the resonant receiving component to output a voltage-stabilized power supply (VCC). A load sudden-change protection circuit includes an overvoltage protection component and an under-voltage protection component that are each respectively connected to the voltage-stabilized power supply and a load. The overvoltage protection component turns on the load when the voltage of the voltage-stabilized power supply is higher than a first preset voltage due to sudden turn-off of the load. The under-voltage protection component turns off the load when the voltage of the voltage-stabilized power supply is lower than a second preset voltage due to sudden turn-on of the load.
