  • Patent number: 10943154
    Abstract: Multi-modal data representing driving events and corresponding actions related to the driving events can be obtained and used to train a neural network at least in part by using a triplet loss computed for the driving events as a regression loss to determine an embedding of driving event data. In some cases, using the trained neural network, a retrieval request for an input driving event and corresponding action can be processed by determining, from the neural network, one or more similar driving events or corresponding actions in the multi-modal data.

  • Patent number: 10902303
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable mediums storing computer executable code for visual recognition implementing a triplet loss function are provided. The method include receiving an image generated from an image source associated with a vehicle. The method may also include analyzing the image based on a convolutional neural network. The convolutional neural network may apply both a triplet loss function and a softmax loss function to the image to determine classification logits. The method may also include classifying the image into a predetermined class distribution based upon the determined classification logits. The method may also include instructing the vehicle to perform a specific task based upon the classified image.

  • Patent number: 10654523
    Abstract: A method for attaching a rear frame suspension module to an existing vehicle that will operate on the existing automotive engine, heating, and cooling system. The rear frame suspension module supports passengers sitting straddled in a front to back position to give an existing vehicle a motorcycle-like appearance. The rear suspension module can be attached and removed from an existing automobile front frame suspension module. The resulting wider front structure of the vehicle makes for safer riding compared to a two wheel motorcycle. Vehicle maintenance can be done at most automotive repair shops.

  • Publication number: 20180280839
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a filter device for separating debris from a fluid. The filter device includes a housing having at least one inlet, at least one first outlet, and a second outlet. The filter device further includes a filter cartridge that allows fluid to pass therethrough but prevents passage of debris therethrough. The filter cartridge is positioned within the housing so as to define an upper chamber and a lower chamber within the housing. The at least one inlet is positioned so as to allow contaminated fluid to enter the lower chamber of the housing. Fluid must pass through the filter cartridge in an upward direction to reach the upper chamber, and the first outlet is positioned so as to allow filtered fluid to exit the upper chamber. The second outlet is positioned to allow debris accumulated within the lower chamber to be discharged.

  • Publication number: 20150251704
    Abstract: The vehicle will support two or more passengers moving from Point A to Point B—the grocery store, a friend's house, to work or out on out-of-town trips. Because of its new ornamental design, the public will be pleased with its motorcycle and automobile characteristics. Passengers don't have to hold up the weight of the vehicle with their legs, compared to a two-wheel motorcycle. The public will enjoy the open seating compartment to Mother Nature, enjoying the hot or cold climate. The new vehicle will have its own heating and cooling system which can be adjusted by the passenger for climate control when there is a change in the temperature around them. Passengers will be seated in an open compartment, having fun, relieving stress, and seeing everything around them. Compared to a two-wheel motorcycle, the new vehicle is more visible on the road and highway, making it safer for passengers in case of a highway accident.

  • Publication number: 20130343642
    Abstract: Automated person re-identification may be assisted by consideration of attributes of the person in a joint classification with matching of the person. By both solving for similarities in a plurality of attributes and identities, discriminative interactions may be captured. Automated person re-identification may be assisted by consideration of a semantic color name. Rather than a color histogram, probability distributions are mapped to color terms of the semantic color name. Using other descriptors as well, similarity measures for the various descriptors are weighted and combined into a score. Either or both considerations may be used.

  • Patent number: 7961215
    Abstract: A multi-camera system that collects images and videos of moving objects in dynamic and crowded scenes, subject to task constraints is disclosed. The system constructs “task visibility intervals” comprising information about what can be sensed in future time intervals. Methods for constructing these intervals applying prediction of future object motion and including consideration of factors such as object occlusion and camera control parameters are also disclosed. Using a plane-sweep algorithm, these atomic intervals can be combined in a method to form multi-task intervals, during which a single camera can collect videos suitable for multiple tasks simultaneously. Methods for fast camera scheduling that yield solutions within a small constant factor of an optimal solution are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 7512250
    Abstract: A method for eliminating errors in foreground object detection in digitized images comprises providing a reference camera and a secondary camera, vertically aligning each said camera with a baseline that is approximately perpendicular to a ground plane, wherein said reference camera is placed lower than said secondary camera, selecting a foreground pixel in a reference view of a first point in a foreground object, finding a conjugate pixel of the foreground pixel in a secondary view, using the foreground and conjugate pixels to determine an image base pixel of a base point in the reference view, wherein said base point is a point on the ground plane below the first point, and using the foreground and image base pixels to find a location where the ground plane is first visible.

  • Publication number: 20080248893
    Abstract: A golf putter head is generally triangular, when viewed from the top, with a flat, front face and a trailing, central tail. When viewed from the side, the head has a generally straight front face and a flat or slightly curved or rounded bottom surface. The shaft for the grip is anchored to the head at a generally central position on the top of the head, with the axis of the shaft from the ball contact point on the face of the putter head being about one-half the diameter of a legal U.S. golf ball. The head is formed and/or weighted so that the shaft is on the horizontal center of gravity of the putter head, and the vertical center of gravity is about midway between the top and bottom surfaces of the head.

  • Patent number: 7290672
    Abstract: A crane tower device includes a basket that supports a tower crane and sits within a bay formed by the vertical columns of a building under construction. The basket and the tower crane are supported by support stubs that are attached to the vertical columns. Because the lateral and vertical load is principally distributed vertically to the vertical columns rather than horizontally, no reinforcement of the horizontal beams, floors or any other portion of the building structure are needed, which results in substantial cost savings.
