  • Publication number: 20240103131
    Abstract: A radar-based environmental detection system for motor vehicles. The system includes at least one radar sensor for providing location data regarding objects in the environment of the motor vehicle, and including a neural network for converting the location data into an environmental model which represents spatio-temporal object data of the objects. The neural network is conditioned to give priority to outputting environmental models in which at least one predetermined physical relationship between the location data and the object data is satisfied.

  • Publication number: 20230419649
    Abstract: A method for the chronological correction of multimodal data includes: receiving a first data set from a reference sensor with measurements at different measurement timepoints, receiving a second data set of a second sensor with measurements at different measurement timepoints, each not exactly matching those of the reference sensor, reading the first and the second data sets by a neural network and identifying a respective plurality of feature vectors for the first and second data set at the respective measurement timepoints, merging and comparing the respective feature vectors, which refer to corresponding, not exactly matching measurement timepoints, by the neural network so that parameters of a chronological correction are identified, and identifying a chronological offset between the respective measurement timepoints of the reference sensor and the second sensor, and/or a corrected data set from the second sensor based on the measurement timepoints of the reference sensor.

  • Patent number: 11335540
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an impedance matching network includes a mechanically variable capacitor (MVC), a second variable capacitor, and a control circuit. The control circuit carries out a first process of determining a second variable capacitor configuration for reducing a reflected power at the RF source output, and altering the second variable capacitor to the second variable capacitor configuration. The control circuit also carries out a second process of determining an RF source frequency, and, upon determining that the RF source frequency is outside, at a minimum, or at a maximum of a predetermined frequency range, determining a new MVC configuration to cause the RF source frequency, according to an RF source frequency tuning process, to be altered to be within or closer to the predetermined frequency range. The determination of the new MVC configuration is based on the RF source frequency and the predetermined frequency range.

  • Publication number: 20200234927
    Abstract: In one embodiment, the present disclosure is directed to a method for impedance matching. The RF source provides at least two repeating, non-zero pulse levels, including a high-priority pulse level and a low-priority pulse level. The matching network comprises at least one EVC, which comprises discrete capacitors configured to switch in and out to provide a plurality of match configurations. Each EVC has a switching limit comprising a predetermined number of switches in or out of the EVC's discrete capacitors in a prior time interval. Upon determining that switching to a new match configuration would cause an EVC to reach the switching limit, the method determines whether the new match configuration is for the low- or high-priority pulse level. If for the low-priority pulse level, the method prevents the switching of the EVC. If for the high-priority pulse level, the method switches the EVC to the new match configuration.
