  • Publication number: 20200128097
    Abstract: The subject matter of this specification generally relates to pre-caching data for a predicted future action. In some implementations, a client device includes a data storage device having a cache that stores data received for one or more mobile applications and a data processing apparatus that communicates with the data storage device and a display. A user interface context can be determined for a given user interface being presented for a given application. A predicted next action that a user of the client device will perform at the given user interface can be determined based on the user interface context. Prior to detecting the predicted next action, a request for next action data that will be presented in response to the user performing the predicted next action can be transmitted over a network. The next action data can be received and stored in the cache.

  • Publication number: 20200125091
    Abstract: A first localization system performs a first localization using a first set of sensors to track locations of the ADV along the path from a starting point to a destination point. A first localization curve is generated as a result representing the locations of the ADV along the path tracked by the first localization system. Currently, a second localization system performs a second localization using a second set of sensors to track the locations of the ADV along the path. A second localization curve is generated as a result representing the locations of the ADV along the path tracked by the second localization system. A system delay of the second localization system is determined by comparing the second localization curve against the first localization curve as a localization reference.
