  • Publication number: 20190302761
    Abstract: In various examples, at least partial control of a vehicle may be transferred to a control system remote from the vehicle. Sensor data may be received from a sensor(s) of the vehicle and the sensor data may be encoded to generate encoded sensor data. The encoded sensor data may be transmitted to the control system for display on a virtual reality headset of the control system. Control data may be received by the vehicle and from the control system that may be representative of a control input(s) from the control system, and actuation by an actuation component(s) of the vehicle may be caused based on the control input.

  • Publication number: 20190265703
    Abstract: A system and method for an on-demand shuttle, bus, or taxi service able to operate on private and public roads provides situational awareness and confidence displays. The shuttle may include ISO 26262 Level 4 or Level 5 functionality and can vary the route dynamically on-demand, and/or follow a predefined route or virtual rail. The shuttle is able to stop at any predetermined station along the route. The system allows passengers to request rides and interact with the system via a variety of interfaces, including without limitation a mobile device, desktop computer, or kiosks. Each shuttle preferably includes an in-vehicle controller, which preferably is an AI Supercomputer designed and optimized for autonomous vehicle functionality, with computer vision, deep learning, and real time ray tracing accelerators. An AI Dispatcher performs AI simulations to optimize system performance according to operator-specified system parameters.

  • Patent number: 9921804
    Abstract: A system and method is presented for awarding content to users of mobile devices for attending events, appearing at locations, or viewing audiovisual content. One embodiment also automatically alters the configuration of mobile devices, which is particularly useful in movie theaters. An application on the device recognizes an audible signal provided at the location or in the audiovisual content. The signal can also be used to unlock content. In this way, desired content is available only when the user has attended an event such as an event sponsored by the content creator. The content can relate to the event, and can be synchronized to the event. The signal can also trigger an application or unlock content at a store location. For example, a scavenger hunt can be guided by an application on the mobile device.

  • Patent number: 7113183
    Abstract: Methods and associated systems for improving the visual quality of real-time interactive multimedia presentations, by blending 2-D image data derived from a plurality of 3-D scene views associated with one or more 3-D scenes in accordance with presentation data modifiable by user input in real-time. The 2-D image data rendered from the perspective of the individual scene views are blended together using an associated blend mode in a back to front order producing a 2-D composite image for projection on a display device to a user of the real-time interactive multimedia presentation.
