  • 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: 10223598
    Abstract: In a method and system for generating vehicle image data, and to improve the generation of vehicle image data, 2D object information having at least 2D object data and object location data of one or more objects, perspective vehicle image data, and vehicle image location data for at least a portion of said vehicle image data are obtained. The object location data is compared with said vehicle image location data; and in case said object location data corresponds to said image location data, said 2D object data is correlated with said perspective vehicle image data using the object location data and the vehicle image location data to obtain a segmented vehicle image dataset.
