  • Patent number: 11975714
    Abstract: Presented are embedded control systems with logic for computation and data sharing, methods for making/using such systems, and vehicles with distributed sensors and embedded processing hardware for provisioning automated driving functionality. A method for operating embedded controllers connected with distributed sensors includes receiving a first data stream from a first sensor via a first embedded controller, and storing the first data stream with a first timestamp and data lifespan via a shared data buffer in a memory device. A second data stream is received from a second sensor via a second embedded controller. A timing impact of the second data stream is calculated based on the corresponding timestamp and data lifespan. Upon determining that the timing impact does not violate a timing constraint, the first data stream is purged from memory and the second data stream is stored with a second timestamp and data lifespan in the memory device.

  • Publication number: 20230093511
    Abstract: A perception processing system includes a memory and a main controller. The main controller includes modules and implements a data processing pipeline including algorithm stages, which are executed in parallel relative to sets of data and are executed sequentially relative to each of the sets of data. The algorithm stages share resources of the modules and the memory to process the sets of data and generate perception information. One of the modules executes global and local controllers. The global controller sets a processing rate for the local controllers. The local controllers monitor current processing rates of the algorithm stages. When one of the current processing rates is less than the set processing rate, the corresponding one of the local controllers sends a first signal to the global controller and in response the global controller sends a broadcast signal to the local controllers to adjust the current processing rates.
