  • Publication number: 20230019893
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure provide for automatically generating labels for sensor data. For instance first sensor data for a first vehicle is identified. The first sensor data is defined in both a global coordinate system and a local coordinate system for the first vehicle. A second vehicle is identified based on a second location of the second vehicle within a threshold distance of the first vehicle within the first timeframe. The second vehicle is associated with second sensor data that is further associated with a label identifying a location of an object, and the location of the object is defined in a local coordinate system of the second vehicle. A conversion from the local coordinate system of the second vehicle to the local coordinate system of the first vehicle may be determined and used to transfer the label from the second sensor data to the first sensor data.

  • Patent number: 11528811
    Abstract: Techniques and mechanisms for providing anisotropic etching of a metallization layer of a substrate. In an embodiment, the metallization layer includes grains of a conductor, wherein a first average grain size and a second average grain size correspond, respectively, to a first sub-layer and a second sub-layer of the metallization layer. The first sub-layer and the second sub-layer each span at least 5% of a thickness of the metallization layer. A difference between the first average grain size and the second average grain size is at least 10% of the first average grain size. In another embodiment, a first condition of metallization processing contributes to grains of the first sub-layer being relatively large, wherein an alternative condition of metallization processing contributes to grains of the second sub-layer being relatively small. A grain size gradient across a thickness of the metallization layer facilitates etching processes being anisotropic.

  • Patent number: 11465578
    Abstract: A vehicle includes a body structure that defines a passenger cabin, a seat assembly that is located in the passenger cabin, and a table that includes a table top and an adjustable support assembly. The table top is located adjacent to the seat assembly, the adjustable support assembly includes actuators, and the adjustable support assembly is configured to move the table top with respect to the seat assembly. The vehicle also includes sensors that are configured to generate sensor outputs regarding an environment outside of the vehicle, and a controller that detects a vehicle event based on the sensor outputs. In response to the detection of the vehicle event, the controller outputs a control signal that controls the adjustable support assembly so that the adjustable support assembly moves at least part of the table top away from the seat assembly.
