  • Patent number: 11127066
    Abstract: A computing system generates recommendations for users within the context of a network service. To account for objectives of various users associated with the network service, some of which may not reach optimality at the same time, the computing system generates values associated with each of the objectives separately. For example, for each objective, the system may train a computer model to produce a representative value. To generate a recommendation of an entity for a user, the system uses the generated objective values as inputs to an optimization algorithm. The optimization step may use linear programming or quadratic programming to generate a recommendation score, for example. This two-step process allows the system to account for multiple objectives and makes the system easily adaptable to change when the set of objectives is updated.

  • Publication number: 20210284108
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method for performing an obstacle detection for an ADV includes detecting an obstacle by a primary ADS and a secondary ADS using an obstacle detection algorithm based on sensor data provided by sensors on the ADV. In response to detecting the obstacle, a first controlled stop distance and a second controlled stop distance are calculated by the primary ADS and secondary ADS respectively based on a speed and a deceleration capability of the ADV. The first and second controlled stop distances between the primary ADS and secondary ADS are exchanged to determine a third controlled stop distance which is the maximum of the two. In response to determining that the ADV reaches within the third controlled distance between the ADV and the obstacle, a controlled stop operation is activated by the primary ADS to decelerate the ADV based on the third controlled stop distance.
