  • Publication number: 20200198444
    Abstract: Described herein is a system and method for detecting malodor within a cabin of an autonomous vehicle, wherein initiation of a remediation system and/or dispatch of the autonomous vehicle to a service hub for mitigating the malodor is based upon sensor signals that monitor the cabin of the autonomous vehicle. The remediation system can include devices such as an HVAC system or a window, which are operated to reduce the concentration of airborne molecules in the cabin of the autonomous vehicle when the concentration of airborne molecules exceeds an air quality threshold. A dispatch protocol may be initiated to dispatch the autonomous vehicle to a service hub when the malodor is associated with certain predefined incidents or when remediation fails to reduce the concentration of airborne molecules below the air quality threshold.

  • Patent number: 10686984
    Abstract: A connected camera system and computer-implemented method for processing visual data. The camera system and method provides control data to a mobile application of a mobile device. The camera system and method transmits the control data from the mobile device (via a cloud service) to a camera device. The camera device configured with a camera housing comprising a camera sensor that captures visual data (e.g., image or video data) in view of a lens. The camera device further configured with a processor coupled to a motor for rotating a shaft. The camera system and method receive the control data, and based on the control data, the processor controls the motor to rotate the shaft. The rotating of the shaft, in turn, rotates the camera housing, such that the camera sensor captures the visual data in view of the lens through a 360-degree plane of rotation.

  • Publication number: 20200184747
    Abstract: Predictive maintenance and diagnostics for an electronic module of an autonomous vehicle using modular condition monitoring is described herein. A computing system receives a signal from a data logger which monitors a condition of the electronic module of the autonomous vehicle, wherein the signal is indicative of damage accumulation information thereof. The computing system identifies a type of the electronic module and a damage accumulation threshold for the type of the electronic module to generate a predicted maintenance schedule for the electronic module of the autonomous vehicle. The damage accumulation information can be stored in a data store to define the damage accumulation threshold for the type of the electronic module.

  • Publication number: 20190382045
    Abstract: A hardware architecture for controlling a safety-relevant process having at least two microcontrollers for controlling the process in at least two control branches, wherein the respective microcontroller control the safety-relevant process. The microcontrollers process the data from at least one sensor, which detects the actual characteristic of the respective control branch. Between the two microcontrollers, the data of the respective sensor are exchanged and provided for each microcontroller and a check is made to determine whether the data from the sensors are consistent. In response to an inconsistency being detected, a majority decision is made and a model value used in forming the majority decision, is calculated in the microcontroller based on control commands so the control of the safety-relevant process by the microcontroller of the control branch, whose data were detected as erroneous in the majority decision, is disabled.

  • Patent number: RE47895
    Abstract: A method and a subscriber station for allocating rights of access to a telecommunications channel of the telecommunications network to at least one subscriber station (5, 10, 15, 20) are proposed in which information signals are transmitted to the at least one subscriber station (5, 10, 15, 20). With the information signals, access authorization data (45, 50, 55) are transmitted to the at least one subscriber station (5, 10, 15, 20). Upon reception of the access authorization data (45, 50, 55) in an evaluation unit (6) of the at least one subscriber station (5, 10, 15, 20), the question is asked whether the access authorization data (45, 50, 55) include an access threshold value (S), and the access threshold value (S) is compared with a random number or a pseudo-random number (R), and the right of access to a telecommunications channel of the at least one subscriber station (5, 10, 15, 20) is granted as a function of the outcome of comparison.
