  • Publication number: 20220350339
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method and a system for training a computer-based autonomous driving model used for an autonomous driving operation by an autonomous vehicle are described. The method includes: creating time-dependent three-dimensional (3D) traffic environment data using at least one of real traffic element data and simulated traffic element data; creating simulated time-dependent 3D traffic environmental data by applying a time-dependent 3D generic adversarial network (GAN) model to the created time-dependent 3D traffic environment data; and training a computer-based autonomous driving model using the simulated time-dependent 3D traffic environmental data.

  • Patent number: 11474125
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer readable media may be configured to calibrate sensor measurements based on detection of brake light. Acceleration information of a first vehicle may be obtained. The acceleration information may define an acceleration probability distribution of the first vehicle. Image information may be obtained. The image information may define an image of the first vehicle. Whether a brake light of the first vehicle is on or off may be determined based on the image of the first vehicle. Based on a determination that the brake light of the first vehicle is on, a calibrated acceleration probability distribution of the first vehicle may be generated based on the acceleration probability distribution of the first vehicle and a braking-calibration curve.

  • Patent number: 9580834
    Abstract: In some embodiments, the present disclosure pertains to methods of growing chalcogen-linked metallic films on a surface in a chamber. In some embodiments, the method comprises placing a metal source and a chalcogen source in the chamber, and gradually heating the chamber, where the heating leads to the chemical vapor deposition of the chalcogen source and the metal source onto the surface, and facilitates the growth of the chalcogen-linked metallic film from the chalcogen source and the metal source on the surface. In some embodiments, the chalcogen source comprises sulfur, and the metal source comprises molybdenum trioxide. In some embodiments, the growth of the chalcogen-linked metallic film occurs by formation of nucleation sites on the surface, where the nucleation sites merge to form the chalcogen-linked metallic film. In some embodiments, the formed chalcogen-linked metallic film includes MoS2.

    Abstract: In various embodiments, methods for synthesizing single-crystalline zero-valent metal nanorings, such as single-crystalline copper nanorings, are described herein. The methods include providing a solution containing a metal cation, a complexing agent bound to the metal cation, thereby forming a metal complex that is at least partially soluble in the solution, and a reducing agent operable for reducing the metal complex to a zero-valent metal and then heating the solution for a sufficient time and at a sufficient temperature until zero-valent metal nanorings form. The solution may be an aqueous solution in an embodiment. Single-crystalline metal nanorings produced by the methods described herein may have a diameter less than about 100 ?m and a wall thickness between about 10 nm and about 500 nm.
