  • Patent number: 11131998
    Abstract: Example systems and methods are disclosed for implementing vehicle operation limits to prevent vehicle load failure during vehicle teleoperation. The method may include receiving sensor data from sensors on a vehicle that carries a load. The vehicle may be controlled by a remote control system. The load weight and dimensions may be determined based on the sensor data. In order to prevent a vehicle load failure, a forward velocity limit and an angular velocity limit may be calculated. Vehicle load failures may include the vehicle tipping over, the load tipping over, the load sliding off of the vehicle, or collisions. The vehicle carrying the load may be restricted from exceeding the forward velocity limit and/or the angular velocity limit during vehicle operation. The remote control system may display a user interface indicating to a remote operator the forward velocity limit and the angular velocity limit.

  • Patent number: 10656646
    Abstract: An example method includes determining a target area of a ground plane in an environment of a mobile robotic device, where the target area of the ground plane is in front of the mobile robotic device in a direction of travel of the mobile robotic device. The method further includes receiving depth data from a depth sensor on the mobile robotic device. The method also includes identifying a portion of the depth data representative of the target area. The method additionally includes determining that the portion of the depth data lacks information representing at least one section of the target area. The method further includes providing an output signal identifying at least one zone of non-traversable space for the mobile robotic device in the environment, where the at least one zone of non-traversable space corresponds to the at least one section of the target area.

  • Patent number: 10488523
    Abstract: An example system includes one or more laser sensors on a robotic device, where the one or more laser sensors are configured to produce laser sensor data indicative of a first area within a first distance in front of the robotic device. The system further includes one or more stereo sensors on the robotic device, where the stereo sensors on the robotic device are configured to produce stereo sensor data indicative of a second area past a second distance in front of the robotic device. The system also includes a controller configured to receive the laser sensor data, receive the stereo sensor data, detect one or more objects in front of the robotic device based on at least one of the laser sensor data and the stereo sensor data, and provide instructions for the robotic device to navigate based on the one or more detected objects.

  • Patent number: 10489171
    Abstract: An online system maintains a page of content for a user that includes content provided to the online system by the user. To allow the user to more easily present content items to other online system users, the online system receives an objective specifying a desired interaction by users presented with the content item from the user and generates a set of content items from content included on the page. One or more content items of the set are selected and a budget for presenting the selected one or more content items is received, and the online system includes one or more of the selected content items in selection processes along with bid amounts based on the budget that select content for presentation to other users. The online system may update the selected content items of the set over time as content included on the page is modified.

  • Patent number: 10160114
    Abstract: Example implementations may relate to methods and systems for determining a safe trajectory for movement of an object by a robotic system. According to these various implementations, the robotic system may determine at least first and second candidate trajectories for moving the object. For at least a first point along the first candidate trajectory, the robotic system may determine a predicted cost of dropping the object at the first point along the first candidate trajectory. And for at least a second point along the second candidate trajectory, the robotic system may determine a predicted cost of dropping the object at the second point along the second candidate trajectory. Then, based on these various determined predicted costs, the robotic system may select between the first and second candidates trajectories and may then move the object along the selected trajectory.

  • Publication number: 20180329425
    Abstract: An example method includes receiving instructions to pick up an object with one or more lift elements of an autonomous vehicle. Based on a current positioning of the vehicle, the method further includes identifying the object to be picked up and a particular side of the object under which to place the one or more lift elements of the vehicle. The method additionally includes determining an approach path toward the object for the vehicle to follow to place the lift elements of the vehicle under the particular side of the object. The method further includes causing the vehicle to move along the determined approach path toward the object. The method additionally includes determining that the lift elements of the vehicle are placed under the particular side of the object. The method also includes causing the vehicle to lift the object with the lift elements.
