  • Publication number: 20190228262
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed herein for collecting annotation data via a gamified user interface in a vehicle control system. According to an embodiment disclosed herein, the vehicle control system detects a trigger to initiate an annotation prompt associated with an object classified from an image. The vehicle control system presents, via a user interface, the annotation prompt. The vehicle control system receives, via the user interface, user input indicative of a response to the annotation prompt by a user and updates a confidence score associated with the classified object as a function of one or more metrics associated with the user.

  • Publication number: 20190213789
    Abstract: Techniques for three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of a dynamic scene as a set of voxels are provided. One technique includes: receiving, by a processor, image data from each of two or more spatially-separated sensors observing the scene from a corresponding two or more vantage points; fusing, by the processor, the image data into the set of voxels on a frame-by-frame basis; segmenting, by the processor, the image data into objects that constitute the scene; detecting, by the processor, which of the objects remain static from frame to frame, remaining ones of the objects being dynamic; filtering, by the processor, the set of voxels to remove those of the voxels corresponding to the static objects, to produce a dynamic subset of the voxels; and outputting, by the processor to a display device, those of the voxels corresponding to the dynamic objects (such as the dynamic subset) and not to the static objects.

  • Publication number: 20190197029
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, systems and articles of manufacture are disclosed to improve spatial-temporal data management. An example apparatus includes a hypervoxel data structure generator to generate a root hexatree data structure having sixteen hypernodes, an octree manager to improve a spatiotemporal data access efficiency by generating a first degree of symmetry in the root hexatree, the octree manager to assign a first portion of the hypernodes to a positive temporal subspace and to assign a second portion of the hypernodes to a negative temporal subspace, and a quadtree manager to improve the spatiotemporal data access efficiency by generating a second degree of symmetry in the root hexatree, the quadtree manager to assign respective hypernodes of the positive temporal subspace and the negative temporal subspace to respective positive and negative spatial subspaces.

  • Patent number: 10217292
    Abstract: According to various embodiments, devices, methods, and computer-readable media for reconstructing a 3D scene are described. A server device, sensor devices, and client devices may interoperate to reconstruct a 3D scene sensed by the sensor devices. The server device may generate one or more models for objects in the scene, including the identification of dynamic and/or static objects. The sensor devices may, provide model data updates based on these generated models, such that only delta changes in the scene may be provided, in addition to raw sensor data. Models may utilize semantic knowledge, such as knowledge of the venue or identity of one or more persons in the scene, to further facilitate model generation and updating. Other embodiments may be described and/or claimed.

  • Patent number: 10204422
    Abstract: An example system for generating a three dimensional (3D) model includes a receiver to receive a single two dimensional (2D) image of an object to be modeled. The system includes a segment extractor to extract a binary segment, a textured segment, and a segment characterization based on the single 2D image. The system further includes a skeleton cue extractor to generate a medial-axis transform (MAT) approximation based on the binary segment and the segment characterization and extract a skeleton cue and a regression cue from the MAT approximation. The system also includes a contour generator to generate a contour based on the binary segment and the regression cue. The system can also further include a 3D model generator to generate a 3D model based on the contour and the skeleton cue.

  • Publication number: 20180375720
    Abstract: Data is received describing a local model of a first device generated by the first device based on sensor readings at the first device and a global model is updated that is hosted remote from the first device based on the local model and modeling devices in a plurality of different asset taxonomies. A particular operating state affecting one or more of a set of devices deployed in a particular machine-to-machine network is detected and the particular machine-to-machine network is automatically reconfigured based on the global model.

  • Publication number: 20180286119
    Abstract: An autonomous object modeler includes a modeling table, a controllable arm, a depth camera attached to the controllable arm, and a controller to control operation of the modeling table, the controllable arm, and the depth camera. The modeling table may be movable and includes a mass sensor to produce mass sensor data indicative of a mass of an object positioned on the modeling table. The controllable arm includes a force-torque sensor to produce force-torque sensor data indicative of an inertia of the object while the object is moved by the controllable arm. The controller is configured to control operation of the controllable arm to reposition the object on the modeling table to generate three-dimensional models of the object. The three-dimensional models include the mass data and the inertia data.

  • Publication number: 20180240244
    Abstract: Techniques for high-fidelity three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of a dynamic scene as a set of voxels are provided. One technique includes: receiving, by a processor, image data from each of two or more spatially-separated sensors observing the scene from a corresponding two or more vantage points; generating, by the processor, the set of voxels from the image data on a frame-by-frame basis; reconstructing, by the processor, surfaces from the set of voxels to generate low-fidelity mesh data; identifying, by the processor, performers in the scene from the image data; obtaining, by the processor, high-fidelity mesh data corresponding to the identified performers; and merging, by the processor, the low-fidelity mesh data with the high-fidelity mesh data to generate high-fidelity 3D output. The identifying of the performers includes: segmenting, by the processor, the image data into objects; and classifying, by the processor, those of the objects representing the performers.
