  • Publication number: 20190369241
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media are provided for implementing a tracking camera system onboard an autonomous vehicle. Coordinate data of an object can be received. The tracking camera system actuates, based on the coordinate data, to a position such that the object is in view of the tracking camera system. Vehicle operation data of the autonomous vehicle can be received. The position of the tracking camera system can be adjusted, based on the vehicle operation data, such that the object remains in view of the tracking camera system while the autonomous vehicle is in motion. A focus of the tracking camera system can be adjusted to bring the object in focus. The tracking camera system captures image data corresponding to the object.

  • Patent number: 10482158
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for monitoring the performance of a user device in a communication network. The techniques include detecting an anomaly in a performance measurement such as a key quality indicator (KQI) of the user device. The techniques include obtaining historical measurements of the KQI for user devices. The historical measurements are assigned to states to reflect whether the performance is good or bad, or somewhere in between. The states can be defined differently for different hours in the day so that the states represent the relative performance for that time of day. For each user device, a Markov model is provided indicating probabilities of transitions between the states. Additional measurements are obtained of the KQI for a selected user device, and the Markov model of the selected user device is used to detect an anomaly in the additional measurements.
