  • Patent number: 10663565
    Abstract: A time of flight sensor device is provided that is capable of generating accurate information relating to propagation time of emitted light pulses using a small number of measurements or data captures. By generating pulse time of flight information using a relatively small number of measurement cycles, object distance information can be generated more quickly, resulting in faster sensor response times. Embodiments of the time of flight sensor can also minimize or eliminate the adverse effects of ambient light on time of flight measurement. Moreover, some embodiments execute time of flight measurement techniques that can achieve high measurement precision even when using relatively long light pulses having irregular, non-rectangular shapes.

  • Publication number: 20200142587
    Abstract: In a hierarchical storage system, blocks of data selected for auto-tiering migration, are selected based on dynamically adjusted group sizes. Contiguous blocks are organized into default groups. I/O activity of the blocks in a group is monitored. Based on the I/O activity, the default groups may be sub-divided into smaller sub-groups or combined into larger groups, to separate as much as practical, contiguous series of cooler blocks and contiguous series of hotter blocks into respective focused (concentrated) groups or sub-groups. The concentrated group or sub-group may then be migrated according to the average I/O activity of the included blocks. Group configurations are continually and dynamically adjusted according to changing I/O conditions.

    Abstract: Methods and systems for generating radar data are disclosed. A scene is defined based on map and route information, where the scene includes one or more objects. Values are assigned to a set of object parameters that describe each of the objects in the defined scene to produce one or more sets of object parameters describing the object(s). The defined scene and the set(s) of object parameters are used to generate scattering data associated with the defined scene. Based on the scattering data and the map and route information, radar data is generated that includes radar information of each object in the defined scene, where the generated radar data is used to train a predictive model to classify each of the identified objects.

  • Publication number: 20200097755
    Abstract: A three-dimensional (3D) sensor device achieves high intrusion detection probability while keeping the probability of a false intrusion detection low by capturing a set of multiple spatial or temporal samples of a measured parameter for an object detected in the sensor's field of view. When an object is detected in the field of view, the TOF sensor device defines a window of N pixels comprising a subset of the pixels corresponding to the object, and obtains N distance measurements corresponding to the N pixels of the window. If the number of the N distance values that are less than a defined threshold distance is equal to or greater than a selected threshold value M (an integer less than N), the TOF sensor device determines that the object is intruding within a protective field and generates a suitable output.
