  • Patent number: 10424196
    Abstract: A method includes determining that a prioritized vehicle plans to traverse an intersection and receiving sensor data from a plurality of sources in a vicinity of the intersection. The method also includes, based on the sensor data, determining a traffic solution to enable the prioritized vehicle to traverse the intersection, the traffic solution identifying a traffic lane and, based on the traffic solution, controlling a traffic light to cause traffic in the traffic lane to disperse and controlling a second traffic light to instruct traffic in an adjacent traffic lane to stop. The method includes instructing the prioritized vehicle to travel via the traffic lane. The traffic in the traffic lane and the traffic in the adjacent traffic lane are traveling in a same direction.

  • Publication number: 20190248720
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a process for etherification of mixed olefinic light naphtha boiling in the range of C5-90° C. cut with simultaneous minimization of unreacted methanol concentration in the product. The etherification of mixed olefinic light naphtha produces the high octane blending component which can be blended directly in the gasoline pool without any recovery of the feed oxygenates like methanol, ethanol etc. which conventionally uses energy intensive separation processes.

  • Patent number: 10151588
    Abstract: On-board, computer-based systems and methods compute continuously updated, real-time state estimates for an aerial vehicle by appropriately combining, by a suitable Kalman filter, local, relative, continuous state estimates with global, absolute, noncontinuous state estimates. The local, relative, continuous state estimates can be provided by visual odometry (VO) and/or an inertial measurement unit (IMU). The global, absolute, noncontinuous state estimates can be provided by terrain-referenced navigation, such as map-matching, and GNSS. The systems and methods can provide the real-time, continuous estimates even when reliable GNSS coordinate data is not available.

  • Patent number: 10139493
    Abstract: Piloted or autonomous rotorcraft includes a rotor safety system. The rotor safety system comprises a lidar scanner toward a rotor of the rotorcraft, e.g., the tail rotor, that scans the 3D space in the vicinity of the rotor. Objects in the vicinity of the rotor are detected from the lidar point data. In a piloted rotorcraft, predictive warnings can be provided to the helicopter's flight crew when a detected object presents a hazard to the rotor of the rotorcraft.

  • Patent number: 10029804
    Abstract: A computerized, on-board flight system for an aircraft has a landing-zone evaluation system for evaluating a landing zone for the aircraft based on sensory data from numerous sensing systems, including lidar, radar, and/or various cameras, to identify potential, suitable landing sites in the landing zone. Based on data from these sensory systems, the landing-zone evaluation system geometrically and semantically evaluates the landing zone's terrain, as well as identifies moving and stationary objects in the landing zone to identify the suitable landing sites for the aircraft.

  • Publication number: 20160335901
    Abstract: Navigation systems and methods communicate a landing location to an aircraft. The method comprises collecting data from multiple sensor systems of the aircraft over time while the aircraft is above the terrain. The method also comprises determining on-going pose estimates of the aircraft over time based on input data from the multiple sensor systems. The method further comprises detecting a non-natural marker in the image data from the camera system, with the non-natural marker being physically located on the terrain at a desired landing location for the aircraft. The method further comprises determining a bearing of the non-natural marker relative to the aircraft from the image data captured by the camera system. The method comprises determining a location of the non-natural marker in a global coordinate frame based on a 3D mapping of terrain below the aircraft and the determined bearing for the marker.

  • Patent number: 8842809
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention relate to a method for x-ray radiography and apparatus for use in x-ray radiography. Specific embodiments can utilize a grid having a plurality of apertures therethrough with optical waveguides positioned in the apertures. The optical waveguides can incorporate a scintillating material, preferably throughout, that absorbs incident x-ray radiation and emits light that is then guided by the optical waveguide. In a specific embodiment, x-ray radiation incident on a first end of the aperture is absorbed by the scintillating material in the optical waveguide and light is emitted by the same scintillating material, a portion of which is guided by the optical waveguide to a second end of the aperture. In addition, secondary electrons created by absorption of the x-ray radiation by the scintillating material can be absorbed by the scintillating material to create more light such that a magnification effect can occur. The light exiting the second end of the aperture can then be detected.
