  • Publication number: 20200193368
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for transporting objects using autonomous vehicles. In an embodiment, a customer makes a reservation with a transportation service provider (e.g., via an online booking application). The customer provides a pick-up date/pick-up time window, a destination and a description of the object(s) (e.g., luggage/cargo) that the customer will be transporting with or without themselves in the autonomous vehicle. After the computer system identifies the physical characteristics of the object(s), it identifies an autonomous vehicle with the appropriate amount of storage/container space with respect to the identified physical characteristics, and then assigns the vehicle to the customer. On or around the pick-up day, the computer system configures the assigned autonomous vehicle with reservation details including a description of the objects.

  • Publication number: 20200192361
    Abstract: An operation-security system for an automated vehicle includes an object-detector and a controller. The object-detector includes at least three sensors. Each sensor is one of a camera used to determine an image-location of an object proximate to a host-vehicle, a lidar-unit used to determine a lidar-location of the object proximate to the host-vehicle, and a radar-unit used to determine a radar-location of the object proximate to the host-vehicle. The controller is in communication with the at least three sensors. The controller is configured to determine a composite-location based on a comparison of locations indicated by the at least three sensors. Information from one sensor is ignored when a respective location indicated by the one sensor differs from the composite-location by greater than an error-threshold. If a remote sensor not on the host-vehicle is used, V2V or V2I communications may be used to communicate a location to the host-vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20190346835
    Abstract: A system for monitoring an electrical device and a method thereof is provided, wherein at least one primary unit is connected with an input side and/or an output side of the electrical device and configured to obtain electrical parameters of the electrical device. A secondary unit is connected with each primary unit and configured to receive the electrical parameters obtained by the primary unit, store the electrical parameters to form a repository of previously obtained electrical parameters, compare the electrical parameters with previously obtained electrical parameters to determine any deviation in the electrical parameters and correlate the deviation in electrical parameters with a list of impending faults to identify any impending fault. The secondary unit based upon the correlation of the electrical parameters generates a summary and/or alert indicative of state of the electrical device by way of alerts, notifications etc.

  • Publication number: 20190318100
    Abstract: Provided are systems, methods, and computer-readable medium for identifying security risks in applications executing in a cloud environment. In various implementations, a security monitoring and management system can obtain application data from a service provider system. The application data can include a record of actions performed by an application during use of the application by users associated with a tenant. The application executes in a service platform provided for the tenant by the service provider system. In various implementations, the application data is analyzed to identify an event associated with a security risk, where the event is identified from one or more actions performed by the application. The system can determine an action to perform in response to identifying the event. In various examples, an agent executing on the service platform can add instrumentation codes used by the application, where the instrumentation provides the application data.

    Abstract: A safe-to-proceed system (10) for operating an automated vehicle proximate to an intersection (14) includes an intersection-detector (18), a vehicle-detector (20), and a controller (24). The intersection-detector (18) is suitable for use on a host-vehicle (12). The intersection-detector (18) is used to determine when a host-vehicle (12) is proximate to an intersection (14). The vehicle-detector (20) is also suitable for use on the host-vehicle (12). The vehicle-detector (20) is used to estimate a stopping-distance (22) of an other-vehicle (16) approaching the intersection (14). The controller (24) is in communication with the intersection-detector (18) and the vehicle-detector (20). The controller (24) is configured to prevent the host-vehicle (12) from entering the intersection (14) when the stopping-distance (22) indicates that the other-vehicle (16) will enter the intersection (14) before stopping.

  • Publication number: 20190213884
    Abstract: A detection system includes a first-sensor, a second-sensor, and a controller. The first-sensor is mounted on a host-vehicle. The first-sensor detects objects in a first-field-of-view. The second-sensor is positioned at a second-location different than the first-location. The second-sensor detects objects in a second-field-of-view that at least partially overlaps the first-field of view. The controller is in communication with the first-sensor and the second-sensor. The controller selects the second-sensor to detect an object-of-interest in accordance with a determination that an obstruction blocks a first-line-of-sight between the first-sensor and the object-of-interest.

  • Publication number: 20190207628
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for performing Layered Belief LDPC decoding on received Standard Belief LDPC encoded data bursts. In on implementation, a receiver: demodulates a signal, the demodulated signal including a noise corrupted signal derived from a codeword encoded using standard belief LDPC encoding; converts the noise corrupted signal derived from the standard belief LDPC encoded codeword to a noise corrupted signal derived from a layered belief LDPC encoded codeword; and decodes the noise corrupted signal derived from the layered belief LDPC encoded codeword using a layered belief LDPC decoder. In further implementations, systems are described for reducing collisions in Layered Belief LDPC decoders that occur when multiple parity checks need the same soft decision at the same time. In these implementations, elements in an original LBD decoder table are rearranged to increase the distance between elements specifying the same location in a RAM where soft decisions are stored.

  • Publication number: 20190095320
    Abstract: Provided are systems, methods, and computer-readable medium for a simulation platform that can generate simulated activity data for testing a security monitoring and control system. In various examples, the simulation platform can parse the activity data from a cloud service to determine the fields associated with each action in the activity data. The simulation platform can then generate a template, where each entry in the template describes an action and the fields associated with the action. The simulation platform can further generate a configuration that describes a test scenario. The simulation platform can use the configuration and the template to generate the particular action, including randomizing some or all of the fields of the action. When input into the security monitoring and control system, the system can operate on the simulated activity data in the same way as when the system ingests live activity data.

  • Publication number: 20190086529
    Abstract: A radar system for an automated vehicle includes a digital-map, a radar, and a controller. The digital-map indicates a characteristic of a roadway traveled by a host-vehicle. The radar detects objects proximate to the host-vehicle. The radar is equipped with a range-setting that is selectively variable. The controller is in communication with the digital-map and the radar. The controller is configured to select the range-setting of the radar based on the characteristic of the roadway. The characteristic may be based on speed-limit, road-shape (e.g. curve-radius), a horizon-distance, and/or an obstruction (e.g. hill, sign, or building). The radar may be equipped with a frame-rate-setting (i.e. pulse repetition frequency or PRF) that is selectively variable, and the controller may be further configured to select the frame-rate-setting based on the characteristic of the roadway.
