A Novel Framework for Lidar-Camera Fusion

VALUE PROPOSITION Motion-Capture, the essence of any autonomous vehicle application is the process of recording and following the movement of objects and people. The use of this 3D-based object detection enables better spatial planning and object avoidance than its 2D counterparts. 2D object detection systems often lack sufficient video resolution...

Random Finite Set based Tracking for 2D/3D Object Detection

VALUE PROPOSITION Multi object tracking is critical in enabling an autonomous vehicle to perceive and maneuver its environment. Three common flaws in multi-object tracking detection is (1) uncertainty in the number of objects, (2) uncertainty regarding when and where the objects may appear and disappear and (3) uncertainty in objects states. A Random...

Camera-LiDAR Fusion for 3D Object Detection

VALUE PROPOSITION When compared to single modality approaches, fusion based object detection methods often require more complex models to integrate heterogeneous sensor data and use more GPU memory and computational resources. This is particularly true for camera-LiDAR based multimodal fusion, which may require three separate deep-learning networks...

A Gating Grid Driver for Time Projection Chamber

Executive SummaryTime Projection Chambers (TPCs) are uniquely useful in analyzing nuclear reactions and resulting particles. These devices rely on fast gating systems to allow or deny entry of particles into the detection area; without which they would not be functional. MSU researchers have developed a novel gating grid driver system for TPCs. Due...

A Remedial Action Tool with Real-Time Stability Screening for Power System Operators

Executive SummaryIndependent system operators who control the North American electric power grid need real-time or near real-time remedial action screening tools. Current systems do not allow system operators to evaluate and respond to incidents, such as downed powerlines or power generators coming offline, in real-time. This can and often does lead...
