  • Publication number: 20190311487
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer readable media configured to generate enhanced three-dimensional information. Three-dimensional information of a scene may be obtained. The three-dimensional information may define a three-dimensional point cloud model of the scene. The three-dimensional information may be determined based on distances of the scene from a location. Image information may be obtained. The image information may define one or more images of an object. The object may be identified based on the image information. A three-dimensional point cloud model of the object may be obtained. Enhanced three-dimensional information of the scene may be generated by inserting the three-dimensional point cloud model of the object into the three-dimensional point cloud model of the scene.

  • Publication number: 20190311226
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and non-transitory computer readable media configured to generate enhanced training information. Training information may be obtained. The training information may characterize behaviors of moving objects. The training information may be determined based on observations of the behaviors of the moving objects. Behavior information may be obtained. The behavior information may characterize a behavior of a given object. Enhanced training information may be generated by inserting the behavior information into the training information.

  • Publication number: 20190306284
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for segmenting a data frame to be acquired into a number of incremental data of equal data length. A first incremental data of the data frame can be acquired from one or more sensors. The first incremental data of the data frame can be processed while a next incremental data of the data frame is being acquired from the one or more sensors. The acquiring and processing of incremental data of the data frame can continue until a last incremental data of the data frame is acquired and processed. Processed incremental data can be outputted as a processed data frame.
