  • Patent number: 10710580
    Abstract: An apparatus and corresponding methods for detecting a tailgating situation involving a second motor vehicle behind an automated vehicle, and performing an automated safety routine in response to the detected tailgating situation. The tailgating situation is detected based on a simultaneous occurrence of two or more conditions involving an estimated time to collision, lateral offsets of both vehicles with respect to a center of a lane, activation of a turn signal blinker of the second motor vehicle, or flashing of a headlamp of the second motor vehicle. The safety routine includes performing a lane change to an adjacent lane. When no adjacent lanes are available for a lane change, a maximum permissible deceleration rate is decreased while increasing a time gap between the automated vehicle and a third motor vehicle directly in front of the automated vehicle by automatically adjusting an amount of at least one of acceleration or braking.

  • Patent number: 10700915
    Abstract: This document describes an adaptive bitrate streaming method allowing streaming an audio video (AV) content to a client device using a multi content delivery network (CDN) approach. Each CDN stores multiple versions of a content that can be requested in the form of a succession of consecutive files using HTTP requests. The method is based on a use of an intermediate module, called diversity module, between an AV player of the client device and each CDN of a plurality of CDN. For each file of a version of a content requested by the AV player, the diversity module requests a manifest file to each CDN and estimates a bitrate of each CDN using reception performances of the manifest files. Each file is requested by the diversity module in the form of a succession of groups of segments structured according to a pattern comprising a predetermined number of segments.

  • Publication number: 20200179073
    Abstract: Invasive cardiology and radiology are widespread procedures that involve the use of X-ray radiations for imaging. During these procedures, the operators are exposed to a variable dose of radiation. It is shown that these professionals are among the most exposed to ionizing radiations. New studies have shown that brain cancers can be linked to these exposures. As these exposures are harmful to health, maximum protection is required to protect the patient and the staff. The current invention provides an improved protective shield to fully protect the staff in cardiologic, angiologic, and radiologic procedures. The present invention relates to a modified surgical drape that include a layer that absorbs the X-rays scattered from the patient's body during invasive angiology procedures.
