  • Publication number: 20230121812
    Abstract: Data augmentation is described to train an artificial intelligence model that includes analyzing a first data set to measure an amount of data in the data set and the variation in the amount of data in the first data set to determine deficiencies for training an artificial intelligence model. Augmenting data is added for the first data set having an amount of data measured that fails to meet a threshold value. Deficiencies in the variation in the amount of data in the first data set are augmented using augmentation methods outside the variation scope of the first data set to provide a second data set of augmented data. An artificial intelligence model is trained with a combined data set of the first data set, and the second data set of augmented data when the first and second data set have an amount of data meeting the threshold value.

  • Patent number: 11631316
    Abstract: An in-vehicle life detection system and detection method thereof are provided. The system includes a processor, an electromagnetic wave detection module, and a warning module. The method includes following steps: vehicle condition identifying step, life form detecting step, and warning step. Upon receiving an engine off signal and a driver absence signal, the processor emits a detection activation signal, activating the electromagnetic wave detection module to emit an electromagnetic wave for detecting a life form. When the life form is detected, the warning module sends a warning signal, indicating that the life form is left in the vehicle when the vehicle is in the engine off status with the doors closed. Thus, the tragedy of a life form remaining inside the vehicle incapable of calling for help is avoided.
