  • Patent number: 11847385
    Abstract: Embodiments of a variable system for simulating the operation of an autonomous system, such as an autonomous vehicle, are disclosed. A layered approach for defining variables can allow changing the specification of those variables under the rules of override and refinement, while leaving the software components that query those variables at runtime unaffected. The variable system can facilitate, among others, deterministic sampling of variables, simulation variations, noise injection, and realistic message timing. These applications can make the simulator more expressive and more powerful by virtue of being able to test the same scenario under many different conditions. As a result, more exhaustive testing can be performed without requiring user intervention and without having to change the individual software components of the simulator.

  • Patent number: 11847477
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided herein for natively interpreting logic across disparate platforms. Rather than executing server calls that are computationally expensive, logic may be extracted into code segments that can be evaluated at run time by an interpreter. The interpreter is passed a set of evaluators, features, and contextual data, each of which is expressed in a domain specific language. An evaluator maps an identifier to a rule and describes one or more contextual data fields with which the rule is to be evaluated. A feature corresponds to a logical condition that identifies the evaluator and a return value that is returned if the condition is met. The interpreter identifies the evaluator from the feature being evaluated and evaluates its corresponding rule based on the contextual data provided to return a return value. One or more operations may be performed based on the return value provided.

  • Patent number: 11656880
    Abstract: A technique for efficient calling of functions on a processor generates an executable program having a function call by analysing an interface for the function that defines an argument expression and an internal value used solely within the function, and an argument declaration defining an argument value to be provided to the function when the program is run. A data structure is generated including the internal value and a resolved argument value derived from the argument expression and the argument value. A single instruction is encoded in the program to utilise the data structure. When the program is executed on a processor, the single instruction causes the processor to load the argument value and internal value from the data structure into registers in the processor, prior to evaluating the function. The function can then be executed without further register loads being performed.

    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed relating to retrieving data from an in-memory cache, such as that for a database system. In various embodiments, an in-memory cache receives a request from an application for data, where the request specifies a class having a function executable to access the data from a location external to the cache in response to a cache miss. The cache handles the request such that the cache miss is not returned to the application. Specifically, the cache, in some embodiments, determines whether it stores the requested data, and in response to determining that it does not store the data, calls the function of the class to access the data from the location external to the cache and receives the data returned by the execution of the function. The cache then stores the received data in the cache and returns the received data in response to the request.

  • Patent number: 11068468
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and computer program product for validating a structured data object. A computer system identifies rules for validating interrelationships among data nodes. The data nodes are composable into structured data objects according to a domain specific language. The validation rules are topologically sorted according to dependency relationships declared therein. The computer system receives the structured data object, which consists of interrelated data nodes. The structured data object is traversed according to a traversal algorithm that tracks dependency relationships. Each data node is inserted into a queue according to the traversal algorithm. For each data node in the queue, a subset of the validation rules is identified. The subset is run within a context of the structured data object. Rule failure for the data node are recorded, and a failure report is generated that indicates failure results for each data node.
