  • Publication number: 20210158410
    Abstract: A method for managing vehicles comprises: detecting motion of an object at a first location associated with a geographic area using a motion sensor, the geographic area including one or more parking locations; responsive to detecting the motion of the object at the first location, capturing, using one or more cameras, image data associated with the first location; using one or more edge processors located within a threshold proximity of the geographic area to access a machine learning computer vision model. The one or more edge processors are configured to execute instructions locally to the first location to perform operations comprising: obtaining, at the computer vision model, the image data associated with the object; determining, by the computer vision model, that the object is a vehicle; identifying, by the computer vision model, one or more vehicle specific parameters associated with the vehicle; and determine the one or more vehicle specific parameters that identify the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 10617074
    Abstract: A plant watering device. The plant watering device includes an outer container having a plurality of apertures on a lower portion of a first sidewall, an inner container having a second sidewall defining and open upper end and an open lower end, wherein the second sidewall of the inner container is secured to an interior surface of the first sidewall of the outer container via a fastener; and an apron encircling an outer side of the first sidewall. The plant watering device is securable to the ground via a stake. In use, water is poured into the inner container, flows through the open lower end of the inner container to the outer container interior volume, and then exits the apertures of the outer container. This allows the water to gently diffuse around an area where a plant is planted, while the apron prevents soil erosion and damage to the plant.
