  • Publication number: 20190243583
    Abstract: A method, computer system, and a computer program product for conducting forward reasoning is provided. The present invention may include conducting the forward reasoning, wherein the forward reasoning includes selecting a rule from a plurality of rules stored in a rule base and executing an action, wherein the rule is associated with a condition satisfied by internal states stored in a working memory, and wherein the action is associated with the condition. The present invention may also include detecting the action is creating a one-time object. The present invention may then include conducting the forward reasoning with a first new context in response to the detected one-time object, wherein the one-time object is stored as one of the internal states in the working memory. The present invention may further include deleting the one-time object in response to a completion of the forward reasoning with the first new context.

  • Publication number: 20190138839
    Abstract: An image processing apparatus includes an image acquisition unit and a determination unit. The image acquisition unit uses a camera to acquire a first image representing an area in a first relative position and a second image representing an area in a second relative position closer to the moving direction of the vehicle than the first relative position. The determination unit compares the first image with the second image acquired earlier than the first image and representing an area overlapping the first image for luminance and/or the intensity of a predetermined color component to determine whether there exists a specific area higher in luminance than the surroundings or lower in luminance than the surroundings in the first image.

  • Publication number: 20180181821
    Abstract: The image processing device counts the number of lane marking feature points. The image processing device determines whether the count number of the lane marking feature points is equal to or greater than a first threshold. The image processing device arranges the setting to use the lane marking feature points in the lane marking detection process when the count number of the lane marking feature points is equal to or greater than the first threshold. On the other hand, the image processing device counts the number of Botts' Dot feature points when the count number of the lane marking feature points is smaller than the first threshold. The image processing device arranges the setting to use the Botts' Dot feature points in the lane marking detection process when the count number of the Botts' Dot feature points is equal to or greater than the second threshold.
