  • Publication number: 20190004539
    Abstract: An autonomous unmanned road vehicle and how it can be used to make deliveries. The unmanned vehicle is capable of operating autonomously on paved roadways. The vehicle has a control system for autonomous driving and a perception system for detecting objects in its surroundings. The vehicle also has one or more cargo compartments for carrying the delivery items. The vehicle may have a flashing light beacon to increase the conspicuousness of the vehicle. In consideration that the vehicle does not carry passengers, the size and/or motor power of the vehicle may be reduced as compared to conventional passenger vehicles.

  • Patent number: 9948652
    Abstract: Systems, computer program products, and methods are described herein for identifying threat vectors and implementing controls for securing resources within a network. The present invention is configured to determine one or more threat vectors associated with the resource; determine one or more controls associated with each of the one or more threat vectors associated with the resource; determine whether the one or more controls associated with the at least one of the one or more threat vectors is capable of detecting the access by an external computing device via at least one of the one or more types of access; and dynamically generate a graphical representation of the resource and the one or more threat vectors based on at least the received analysis request.
