  • Publication number: 20200380305
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for training and verification of learning models are described. A device may capture a camera frame including a road feature of a physical environment, determine a first classification and a first localization of the road feature based on positioning information of the road feature from a high-definition map and positioning information of the device from a positioning engine. The device may analyze a learning model by comparing one or more of the first classification of the road feature or the first localization of the road feature in the camera frame to one or more of a second classification or a second localization of the road feature determined by the learning model. The device may then determine a loss comparison value and adapt the learning model according to the loss comparison value.

  • Patent number: 10853044
    Abstract: System and method of compiling a program having a mixture of host code and device code to enable Profile Guided Optimization (PGO) for device code execution. An exemplary integrated compiler can compile source code programmed to be executed by a host processor (e.g., CPU) and a co-processor (e.g., a GPU) concurrently. The compilation can generate an instrumented executable code which includes: profile instrumentation counters for the device functions; and instructions for the host processor to allocate and initialize device memory for the counters and to retrieve collected profile information from the device memory to generate instrumentation output. The output is fed back to the compiler for compiling the source code a second time to generate optimized executable code for the device functions defined in the source code.

  • Patent number: 10852963
    Abstract: An uneven distributed storage across a mesh fabric storage system may include receiving storage operations from one or more client devices and/or applications contemporaneously with receiving availability messaging from a set of multiple storage devices that may be of the same or different types. One or more of the storage operations may be assigned to a storage device that has signaled its readiness to perform the one or more storage operations via an issued availability message. Each storage device may thereby perform a subset of the collective set of storage operations with the uneven distribution allocating load that is directly commensurate with the performance of each storage device. Stored data may be moved between storage devices using a similar availability-driven methodology so as to reallocate capacity usage while still providing the fastest storage performance associated with all storage devices writing the data as it is generated.

  • Patent number: 10802762
    Abstract: An asynchronous storage system may perform asynchronous writing of data from different sets of received non-consecutive synchronous write requests based on a dynamic write threshold that varies according to parameters of the storage device and/or synchronous write request patterns. The asynchronous writing may include coalescing data from a set of non-consecutive write requests in a plurality of received write requests that contain different data for a particular file, issuing a single asynchronous write request with the data that is coalesced from each write request of the set of non-consecutive write requests to the storage device instead of each write request of the set of non-consecutive write requests, and writing the data that is coalesced from each write request of the set of non-consecutive write requests to the storage device with a single write operation that is executed in response to the single asynchronous write request.

  • Publication number: 20200320742
    Abstract: A system and method for calibrating a forward-facing camera or sensor of a vehicle is provided. The system includes a calibration tool, the position of which can be adjusted on the vehicle to align a presentation screen of the calibration tool with the vehicle camera. A processor performs a method to determine the size and position of a calibration target to be displayed on the presentation screen, based on a position of the calibration tool relative to the vehicle camera and generates a calibration target image to be digitally transmitted to the presentation screen. The presentation screen displays the calibration target image at an appropriate height, angle, and distance from the camera or sensor being calibrated.

  • Publication number: 20200264970
    Abstract: A computer system manages the allocation of memory to an application program using a dependency tree. The dependency tree informs a memory manager of data inputs, data outputs, and intermediate values associated with execution of the application program. The memory manager allocates a single heap structure within a physical memory. Data associated with each node of the dependency tree is allocated to the heap structure so that data input values are allocated in a contiguous block, and intermediate values are allocated separately. In various examples, as execution of the application program proceeds, the separation of intermediate values from non-intermediate values within the heap reduces memory fragmentation providing improved performance of the computer system as a whole.

  • Patent number: 10728372
    Abstract: A holder for holding a mobile electronic device to an object, the holder having two first openings, a first communication path, two second openings, and a second communication path. The two first openings form a first set of openings. The first communication path connects the first openings so a securing device can be fed into one of the first openings and out of the other of the first openings. The two second openings form a second set of openings. The second communication path connects the second openings so that the securing device can be fed into one of the second openings and out of the other of the second openings. The first openings are spaced apart from the second openings so the securing device can be secured to the holder at the first and second sets of openings, and additionally wrapped around the object to secure the holder thereto.

  • Patent number: 10717681
    Abstract: A method of preparing a ceramic matrix composite (CMC) component that includes a protective ceramic layer comprises adhering at least one flexible ceramic tape to a ceramic fiber preform, where the at least one flexible ceramic tape comprises ceramic particles dispersed in an organic binder phase. After the adhering, the at least one flexible ceramic tape is heated to a temperature sufficient to volatilize the organic binder phase, thereby forming a porous ceramic layer on at least a portion of the ceramic fiber preform. After the heating and volatilizing, the ceramic fiber preform and the porous ceramic layer are infiltrated with a molten material, thereby forming a CMC component including, on at least a portion thereof, a protective ceramic layer.
