  • Publication number: 20220139227
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for finding an available pickup/drop-off zone (PDZ) for an autonomous vehicle (AV) to use to pick up a passenger. A PDZ is selected that is likely to be available and that is within a reasonable walking distance of a passenger. The AV and the passenger are guided to the available PDZ. In selecting the available PDZ, the system balances the human and vehicle routing by taking into account the distance possible PDZs are from the passenger, the likelihood the respective PDZs will be available, the passenger's desire/ability to walk to the respective PDZs (e.g., due to physical limitations, weather, etc.), the driving time of the AV to the respective PDZs, the walking time of the passenger to the respective PDZs, and the like.

  • Publication number: 20220108018
    Abstract: This document describes systems and techniques for deriving identity and root keys for embedded systems. In aspects, a boot process and key manager of an embedded system may implement a secure or trusted boot process for embedded systems in which code of next-level boot loader or software image is verified using root keys or other protected information before execution of the boot process is passed to the next stage in the boot process. Alternatively or additionally, the key manager may enable sealing and attestation of various levels of root and identity keys to enable respective verification of software or hardware throughout a life cycle of a device to prevent unauthorized access to protected or private code of an embedded system. By so doing, the described aspects may enable an embedded system with a secure boot process and robust identity and root key management system.

  • Publication number: 20210097452
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure include systems, methods, and devices to auction-based on-demand transport selection. A transport request is received from a requesting user of a transport service region. A subset of transport providers to service the transport request are determined from transport providers that service the transport service region. A transport provider is selected to service the transport request based in part on a combination of a proposed cost to service the transport request and a proposed price to be paid in exchange for utilizing one or more pick-up/drop-off zones (PDZs) in servicing the request. The proposed cost to complete the transport request and the proposed price to be paid for utilizing one or more PDZs are specified by the transport provider. A transport assignment is transmitted to the selected transport provider to cause the selected transport provider to service the transport request.
