  • Patent number: 11080537
    Abstract: Systems and methods for facilitating communication with autonomous vehicles are provided. In one example embodiment, a computing system can obtain a first type of sensor data (e.g., camera image data) associated with a surrounding environment of an autonomous vehicle and/or a second type of sensor data (e.g., LIDAR data) associated with the surrounding environment of the autonomous vehicle. The computing system can generate overhead image data indicative of at least a portion of the surrounding environment of the autonomous vehicle based at least in part on the first and/or second types of sensor data. The computing system can determine one or more lane boundaries within the surrounding environment of the autonomous vehicle based at least in part on the overhead image data indicative of at least the portion of the surrounding environment of the autonomous vehicle and a machine-learned lane boundary detection model.

  • Patent number: 10803328
    Abstract: Systems and methods for detecting objects are provided. In one example, a computer-implemented method includes receiving sensor data from one or more sensors configured to generate sensor data. The method includes inputting the sensor data to a machine-learned model that generates a class prediction and an instance prediction for each of a plurality of portions of the sensor data. The instance prediction includes an energy value based on a distance to at least one object boundary. The machine learned model can be trained to generate a common energy value to represent the at least one object boundary. The method includes generating as outputs of the machine-learned model, an instance prediction and a class prediction corresponding to each of the plurality of portions of the sensor data. The method includes generating one or more object segments based at least in part on the instance predictions and the class predictions.

  • Publication number: 20130076982
    Abstract: A television (TV) system and a booting method thereof are provided. In the present invention, by additionally adding a self-setting booting item into an OSD (on-screen display) menu provided by the TV system, a plurality of booting modes related to the TV system is self-defined by a user under the self-setting booting item. Accordingly, the TV system performs a booting procedure in response to the self-defined and selected booting mode. Since the booting mode of the TV system can be self-defined/selected by the user, the modules corresponding to functions that are not need by the user in the TV system can be turned off/disabled, which avails saving power and improving a booting speed of the TV system, and even increasing practicability of the TV system.
