  • Patent number: 11328444
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a signal processing apparatus and system. In calibration, a sensor section is used to acquire a time of day when a stereo camera image capturing a target is acquired and a time of day when a radar image capturing the target is acquired. The target has a radar reflector and a marker. The image acquisition times of day are acquired while at the same time changing a distance between the sensor section and the target so as to find an amount of time-of-day discrepancy, a difference in time of day between the stereo camera image and the radar image at the same distance. At the time of object detection, the radar image acquired first is buffered and then output together with the stereo camera image acquired by the time-of-day discrepancy later, thus combining the stereo camera image and the radar image.

  • Patent number: 11243526
    Abstract: A plurality of basic simulations independent of one another are carried out, which determine respective remaining service life predictions for the machine. The remaining service life predictions and characteristic data are fed to a neural network, which outputs weights for the remaining service life predictions. A final prediction is calculated from the remaining service life predictions by weighting the remaining service life predictions relative to one another. A hybrid model is produced, which results from the combination of the basic simulations with the neural network. The remaining service life can be predicted not only for a small number of machines for which a specific simulation model has been manually created. The hybrid model enables condition monitoring for any further types and configurations of machines that merely belong to the same machine class. The basic simulations can therefore also be applied to previously unknown machines.

    Abstract: Described is a system for predicting future social activity. The system extracts social activities from spatial-temporal social network data collected in a first time period ranging from hours to days to capture spatial structures of social activities in a graph network representation. A graph matching technique is applied over a set of spatial-temporal social network data collected in a second time period ranging from weeks to months to capture temporal structures of the social activities. A spatial-temporal structure of each social activity is represented as an activity core, where each activity core is defined as active nodes that participate in the social activity with a frequency over a predetermined threshold over the second time period. For each activity core, the system computes statistics of the social activity and uses the statistics to generate a prediction of future behaviors of the social activity.
