  • Publication number: 20210261156
    Abstract: A system of creating a simulation scenario definition to simulate behavior of an autonomous vehicle includes a computing device and a computer-readable storage medium having one or more programming instructions. The system identifies an event on which a simulation scenario definition is to be based, identifies one or more log files associated with the event, parses the one or more log files in a time-sequential order and populates the simulation scenario definition with information from the identified log files until an event trigger is detected, identifies an actor from one or more of the log files, infer a shape of the actor, generates one or more simulated tracks that includes the inferred shape for the actor, and adds the simulated tracks to the simulation scenario definition.

  • Publication number: 20210263524
    Abstract: A system of creating a simulation to simulate behavior of an autonomous vehicle includes a simulation system having an electronic device and a computer-readable storage medium having one or more programming instructions. When executed, the one or more programming instructions cause the electronic device to identify an event that is to be analyzed, receive from an autonomous vehicle system a first data stream that includes event information from one or more vehicle event log files that corresponds to the event, receive from a vehicle dynamics model a second data stream that includes synthetic event information that corresponds to the event, until a switch point is detected operate in a pure log execution stage, upon detection of the switch point operate in a play-forward execution stage, and cause the new simulation to be executed.

  • Publication number: 20200135955
    Abstract: A photovoltaic cell comprises a first subcell formed of a Group IV semiconductor material, a second subcell formed of a Group II-VI semiconductor material, and a tunnel heterojunction interposed between the first and second subcells. A first side of the tunnel heterojunction is formed by a first layer that is adjacent to a top surface of the first subcell. The first layer is of a first conductivity type, is comprised of a highly doped Group IV semiconductor material. The other side of the tunnel heterojunction is formed by a second layer that adjoins the lower surface of the second subcell. The second layer is of a second conductivity type opposite the first conductivity type, and is comprised of a highly doped Group II-VI semiconductor material. The tunnel heterojunction permits photoelectric series current to flow through the subcells.

  • Patent number: 10435992
    Abstract: A lateral junction liner system may include a liner sleeve proximate to a junction between a lateral bore and a main bore of a well. The liner sleeve may be movable between a first position and a second position. The liner sleeve may separate an upper section of the main bore from a lower section of the main bore while in the first position. The lateral junction liner may further include a liner positioned at least partially within the lateral bore and in contact with the liner sleeve. The lateral junction liner system may also include a lock mechanism attached to the liner sleeve that, when enabled, retains the liner sleeve in the first position and that, when disabled, enables selective displacement of the liner sleeve from the first position to the second position.
