  • Publication number: 20210362736
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure provide for determining when to provide and providing secondary disengage alerts for a vehicle having autonomous and manual driving modes. For instance, while the vehicle is being controlled in the autonomous driving mode, receiving user input at one or more using input devices of the vehicle. In response to receiving the user input, the vehicle may be transitioned from the autonomous driving mode to a manual driving mode and provide a primary disengage alert to an occupant of the vehicle regarding the transition. Whether to provide a secondary disengage alert may be determined based on at least circumstances of the user input. After the transition, the secondary disengage alert may be provided based on the determination.

  • Publication number: 20210001865
    Abstract: This technology relates to dynamically detecting, managing and mitigating driver fatigue in autonomous systems. For instance, interactions of a driver in a vehicle may be monitored to determine a distance or time when primary tasks associated with operation of the vehicle or secondary tasks issued by the vehicle computing were last performed. If primary tasks or secondary tasks are not performed within given distance thresholds or time limits, then one or more secondary tasks are initiated by the computing device of the vehicle. In another instance, potential driver fatigue, driver distraction or overreliance on an automated driving system is detected based on gaze direction or pattern of a driver.

In another instance, potential driver fatigue, driver distraction or overreliance on an automated driving system is detected based on gaze direction or pattern of a driver. For example, a detected gaze direction or pattern may be compared to an expected gaze direction or pattern given the surrounding environment in a vicinity of the vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20100115588
    Abstract: The present invent ion relates to a mobile advertisement system (100), a method and an application server (40) used to prevent user equipments (10) hosting a forged client 5 application or client software to get access and to hold an external data network connection. According to the present invention, an application server (40) is adapted to receive from the core network (20) of the advertisement system (100) a message comprising an end user identification number (e.g. MSISDN). The application server is further configured to trigger an advertisement confirmation timer which expects to receive an advertisement display confirmation message from the client of the user equipment (10). Upon the timer expiring, the application server (40) request the core network (20) to disconnect the user equipment thereby preventing the user equipment hosting a forged client application to get access and to hold a external data network connection.

  • Publication number: 20100099446
    Abstract: The invention relates to a node and to a method, in a telecommunications system, for selecting one of a plurality of contents, such as advertisement, for use in a mobile user device. The node comprises an access module, for accessing mobile user information corresponding to criteria relative to the plurality of contents which are contained in a memory. The node also comprises a processing module for selecting the content for use in the mobile user device based on a total score calculated for each content of the plurality of contents, the total score of each content being calculated by adding correspondence scores calculated between each criterion and the mobile user information corresponding to each criterion.
