  • Publication number: 20200071967
    Abstract: Vehicle management system in a vehicle and method of operating the same. The vehicle includes an operator zone and a passenger zone. The system includes processor-executable instructions to disable a vehicle lock actuator to prevent locking of a vehicle door where unsafe vehicle conditions may be detected. The system is configured to detect that the operator zone is unoccupied and determine that the passenger zone is occupied while the operator zone is unoccupied to identify that the vehicle is in a non-driver occupied mode. The system receives a vehicle lock request signal and, in response to receiving the vehicle lock request signal while the vehicle is in the non-driver occupied mode, disables the vehicle lock actuator to prevent locking of a vehicle door.

  • Patent number: 10540054
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for automated selection of navigation points for navigating through a computer-generated virtual environment such as, for example, a virtual reality (VR) environment. Specifically, an input set of connected navigation points in a virtual environment is automatically pruned to a connected subset thereof, according to one or more selection factors where at least one of the selection factors is whether the subset will continue to be “connected” after pruning a navigation point from the input set. In addition to whether the pruning of a navigation point will allow the remaining navigation points to remain connected, techniques for pruning based on one or more additional selection factors are also disclosed. According to one additional selection factor, navigation point pruning is based on the degree to which coverage of an input set of navigation points would be reduced by pruning any given navigation point from the input set.

  • Patent number: 10534962
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for increasing the accuracy of automated classifications produced by a machine learning engine. Specifically, the classification produced by a machine learning engine for one photo-realistic image is adjusted based on the classifications produced by the machine learning engine for other photo-realistic images that correspond to the same portion of a 3D model that has been generated based on the photo-realistic images. Techniques are also provided for using the classifications of the photo-realistic images that were used to create a 3D model to automatically classify portions of the 3D model. The classifications assigned to the various portions of the 3D model in this manner may also be used as a factor for automatically segmenting the 3D model.
