  • Publication number: 20230158982
    Abstract: From a set of point data, a set of scattered rays is constructed. From the set of scattered rays, a set of ray slopes is computed. The set of ray slopes is mapped to a corresponding set of trigonometric functions. Using an optimization method, a parameter of the set of trigonometric functions is selected. Using an inverse of the set trigonometric functions, a vehicle mass corresponding to the set of point data is computed. Based on the vehicle mass, a threshold braking distance of a collision avoidance system of the vehicle is adjusted, the threshold braking distance comprising a distance from an object predicted to collide with the vehicle. By braking the vehicle at least the threshold braking distance from the object, a predicted collision between the vehicle and the object is avoided.

  • Patent number: 11609290
    Abstract: MRI system cabinet having a cabinet body with electronics and a water cooler with a water cooling loop. The water cooling loop divides the cabinet body into first and second cabinet spaces, and the electronics are along the first and second cabinet spaces. An air cooler is along the central axis of the water cooler and has a fan. A cooling cycle is formed where, on a first side, the fan generates a first air flow, which is sent to the first cabinet space through a first air path, and a second air flow, which is sent to the second cabinet space through a second air path. After flowing through the first and second cabinet spaces, the first and second air flows are guided into the water cooling loop for heat exchange under the suction action of the fan on a second side, and then directed into the air cooler.
