  • Patent number: 10839679
    Abstract: A map database stores map data. The map data includes position reference point data including identification information of a position reference point being set in an intersection area where traffic lanes intersect, join, or diverge and an absolute position of the position reference point. A communication system receives the identification information of the position reference point and a relative position of another vehicle to the absolute position of the position reference point. A vehicle position information processing unit acquires the absolute position of the position reference point from the position reference point data on the basis of the received identification information of the position reference point. Then, the vehicle position information processing unit specifies a position of the another vehicle on the basis of the acquired absolute position of the position reference point and the received relative position of the another vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20200184353
    Abstract: An apparatus obtains time series data to which a label indicating a category of classification is attached, where the time series data contains variations of target values during a period to which the label is attached. The apparatus divides the time series data into a plurality of sections, and generates an attractor for each of the plurality of sections where the attractor indicates a set of numerical values toward which the variations of the target values tends to evolve. The apparatus calculates a Betti sequence in accordance with the generated attractor for each of the plurality of sections, and obtains a feature for the Betti sequences of the plurality of sections by clustering the Betti sequences or by calculating a statistical quantity of the Betti sequences. The apparatus performs machine learning by using the obtained feature as an input.
