  • Patent number: 11128906
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies are disclosed herein for providing streaming video from mobile computing nodes. A request for streaming video captured by a mobile computing node can be received at a computer including a processor that executes a controller. The request can include a parameter associated with the streaming video. The computer can initiate transmission of an inquiry message to two or more mobile computing nodes and receive inquiry message responses from the mobile computing nodes that include the mobile computing node. The inquiry message responses can indicate that the mobile computing nodes can satisfy the parameter. The computer can create a list of the mobile computing nodes that can satisfy the parameter and provide the list to the requestor. The computer can receive a selection of the mobile computing node, and initiate delivery of a video stream to the requestor.

  • Publication number: 20210034560
    Abstract: A graphics processing unit may, in accordance with a kernel, determine that at least a first packet is written to a memory buffer of the graphics processing unit by a network interface card via a direct memory access, process the at least the first packet in accordance with the kernel, and provide a first notification to a central processing unit that the at least the first packet is processed in accordance with the kernel. The graphics processing unit may further determine that at least a second packet is written to the memory buffer by the network interface card via the direct memory access, process the at least the second packet in accordance with the kernel, where the kernel comprises a persistent kernel, and provide a second notification to the central processing unit that the at least the second packet is processed in accordance with the kernel.

  • Patent number: 10909655
    Abstract: Devices for coordinating or establishing a direct memory access for a network interface card to a graphics processing unit, and for a network interface card to access a graphics processing unit via a direct memory access are disclosed. For example, a central processing unit may request a graphics processing unit to allocate a memory buffer of the graphics processing unit for a direct memory access by a network interface card and receive from the graphics processing unit a first confirmation of an allocation of the memory buffer. The central processing unit may further transmit to the network interface card a first notification of the allocation of the memory buffer of the graphics processing unit, poll the network interface card to determine when a packet is received by the network interface card, and transmit a second notification to the graphics processing unit that the packet is written to the memory buffer.

  • Publication number: 20200380633
    Abstract: A method and computer-readable storage device and apparatus for controlling a roadway resource are disclosed. For example, the method receives from a device associated with a vehicle a request to reach a target destination by a target arrival time and a maximum payment amount to reach the target destination by the target arrival time. The method next determining a route to the target destination and determines a roadway resource along the route that is controllable. The method then sends an instruction to the device associated with the vehicle, where the instruction indicates to navigate the vehicle along the route and controls the roadway resource to enable the vehicle to reach the target destination by the target arrival time.
