  • Publication number: 20200314333
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure are directed to providing a more accurate presentation of a vehicle's surroundings when the presentation combines images from multiple cameras. Cameras may capture the same portion of the environment. If an object is within view of at least two cameras, each camera produces a portion of an overall view, such as a 360 degree synthetic top-down view. The seam, angle and/or geometry, angle between any two images is dynamically determined, such as due to proximity (or lack thereof) to an object. As a result the synthetic top-down view may present an image of an object more prominently and/or avoid having the seam between camera images fall on the image of the object, which may otherwise result in the image of the object being omitted from both camera images.

  • Publication number: 20200273142
    Abstract: The described techniques provide for bin-based rendering where the scene geometry in a frame is subdivided into bins or tiles, and bins are resolved concurrently with the rendering of a next bin. For example, a graphics processing unit (GPU) may process an entire image and sort transactions (e.g., rasterized primitives, such as triangles) into bins. For the rendering of each transaction, a device may identify a memory address of a memory block (e.g., a unit or portion of internal GPU memory (GMEM)) the transaction will be written (i.e., rendered) to. The device may thus prepare the memory block for rendering (e.g., by performing a resolve operation, a clear operation, or an unresolve operation on the memory block), such that the memory block is prepared prior to rendering of the particular transaction. As such, transactions of a bin may be resolved concurrently with rendering of transactions of a next bin.
