Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for displaying portions of a route on a coverage map that are non-compliant for a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) navigation system in an aircraft. A route compliance module defines a geodetic reference datum standard based on the GNSS navigation system. A navigation system database has compliance information corresponding to each of a plurality of airports. A flight management system determines the route of the aircraft and a visual display displays the route and the coverage map. The route compliance module identifies a non-compliant region of the coverage map that is not compliant with the geodetic reference datum standard based on the compliance information and adjusts the visual display to differentiate a non-compliant portion of the route extending within the non-compliant region of the coverage map. Systems and methods are provided for displaying portions of a route on a coverage map that are non-compliant for a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) navigation system in an aircraft. A route compliance module defines a geodetic reference datum standard based on the GNSS ...more ...less

Abstract: An apparatus, including a housing, display, keyboard or touch screen keyboard, microphone, speaker, camera, memory or database which stores information regarding a travel schedule or itinerary, global positioning device, controller, transmitter, and first communication device. The controller detects a deviation of the apparatus from the travel schedule or itinerary or detects an absence of, or a leaving of, the apparatus from the expected location on the travel schedule or itinerary and generates a travel route deviation message. The transmitter transmits the travel route deviation message to the first communication device. The apparatus initiates a telephone call to the first communication device or to a second communication device, deactivates an on/off switching functionality of the apparatus to prevent the apparatus from being turned off, and deactivates a telephone calling on/off switching functionality to prevent the telephone call from being terminated. An apparatus, including a housing, display, keyboard or touch screen keyboard, microphone, speaker, camera, memory or database which stores information regarding a travel schedule or itinerary, global positioning device, controller, transmitter, and first communication device ...more ...less

Abstract: A high-definition map system receives sensor data from vehicles travelling along routes and combines the data to generate a high definition map for use in driving vehicles, for example, for guiding autonomous vehicles. A pose graph is built from the collected data, each pose representing location and orientation of a vehicle. The pose graph is optimized to minimize constraints between poses. Points associated with surface are assigned a confidence measure determined using a measure of hardness/softness of the surface. A machine-learning-based result filter detects bad alignment results and prevents them from being entered in the subsequent global pose optimization. The alignment framework is parallelizable for execution using a parallel/distributed architecture. Alignment hot spots are detected for further verification and improvement. The system supports incremental updates, thereby allowing refinements of subgraphs for incrementally improving the high-definition map for keeping it up to date. A high-definition map system receives sensor data from vehicles travelling along routes and combines the data to generate a high definition map for use in driving vehicles, for example, for guiding autonomous vehicles.

Abstract: A map display device includes a display and a processor. The display displays a predetermined map information group including first map information in a first display mode correlated to a first area and second map information in a second display mode correlated to a second area. The processor conducts the functions of acquiring current position information. When a current position indicated by the current position information is included in the first area, the processor causes the display to perform a display of the first map information in the first display mode correlated to the first area without guiding a user to a destination. When the current position is included in the second area, the processor causes the display to perform a display of the second map information in the second display mode correlated to the second area without guiding the user to the destination. A map display device includes a display and a processor. The display displays a predetermined map information group including first map information in a first display mode correlated to a first area and second map information in a second display mode correlated to a second area ...more ...less

Abstract: In one embodiment, a method of tracking multiple objects with a probabilistic hypothesis density filter is provided. The method includes generating a first intensity by combining a first one or more measurements, wherein a first set of track IDs associated with the first intensity includes track IDs corresponding to respective measurements in the first one or more measurements. A second intensity is generated by combining a second one or more measurements, wherein a second set of track IDs associated with the second intensity includes track IDs corresponding to respective measurements in the second one or more measurements. The first set of track IDs is compared to the second set of track IDs, and the first intensity is selectively merged with the second intensity based on whether any track IDs in the first set of track IDs match any track IDs in the second set of track IDs. In one embodiment, a method of tracking multiple objects with a probabilistic hypothesis density filter is provided. The method includes generating a first intensity by combining a first one or more measurements, wherein a first set of track IDs associated with the first ...more ...less

Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for programming a luminaire with location information, referred to herein as commissioning. Location information may include relative location information (e.g., the position of the luminaire relative to a reference point) and/or absolute location information (e.g., global coordinates for the luminaire). A commissioned luminaire can be configured to emit its location information via light-based communication (LCom). In some cases, the luminaire can be commissioned manually, by hard coding the luminaire with its location either at the luminaire itself or using a device (e.g., a smartphone, tablet, or a dedicated luminaire commissioning device) to program the luminaire with location information. In some cases, the luminaire can be commissioned automatically. In some cases, the luminaire may be configured to provide visual, aural, or tactile feedback to indicate that the luminaire has not received location data or that the luminaire has been moved. Techniques are disclosed for programming a luminaire with location information, referred to herein as commissioning. Location information may include relative location information (e.g., the position of the luminaire relative to a reference point) and/or absolute location ...more ...less
