Abstract

A method for training a trainable module. A plurality of modifications of the trainable module, which differ from one another enough that they are not congruently merged into one another with progressive learning, are each pretrained using a subset of the learning data sets. Learning input variable values of a learning data set are supplied to all modifications as input variables; from the deviation of the output variable values, into which the modifications each convert the learning input variable values, from one another, a measure of the uncertainty of these output variable values is ascertained and associated with the learning data set as its uncertainty. Based on the uncertainty, an assessment of the learning data set is ascertained, which is a measure of the extent to which the association of the learning output variable values with the learning input variable values in the learning data set is accurate.

Abstract

The invention relates to a method for determining a change in a range of a lidar sensor (1) for a vehicle or a robot. According to the invention, in a reference measurement with a reference target (RZ) situated at a predefined distance (d_0) from the lidar sensor (1), a reference noise level (R_0) of infrared radiation (S) received by means of the lidar sensor (1) and a signal-to-noise ratio of infrared radiation (S) reflected at the reference target (RZ) and received by the lidar sensor (1) are determined. In a driving operation measurement, during driving operation of the vehicle or robot, a current noise level (R_1, R_2) of infrared radiation (S) received by means of the lidar sensor (1) is determined and the current noise level (R_1, R_2) is used to determine a theoretical distance (d_1, d_2) with respect to a position (P_1, P_2) at which the reference target (RZ) would have to be situated if the same signal-to-noise ratio as for the reference measurement were present given the current noise level (R_1, R_2). In a range change calculation, a deviation between the predefined distance (d_0) and the theoretical distance (d_1, d_2) is determined, the deviation corresponding to the change in the range of the lidar sensor (1) relative to the range thereof during the reference measurement.

Abstract

The invention discloses a method and a system (100) of operating a gas sensor 10 in a portable electronic device (50). The gas sensor (10) operates in an ultra-low power mode when the portable electronic device (50) is inactive and the gas sensor (10) operates in a normal power mode when the portable electronic device (50) is active. The method involves storing a baseline resistance value of the gas sensor (10) in the ultra-low power mode. The gas sensor (10) transitions to a normal power mode from the ultra-power mode, when the portable electronic device (50) is active. A rate of stabilization of resistance value of the gas sensor (10) is computed in the normal power mode. A stabilized resistance value of the gas sensor (10) in the normal power mode is estimated based on the rate of stabilization of resistance value of the gas sensor (10) in the normal power mode, the baseline resistance value in the ultra-low power mode and a comparison chart of stabilized resistance values of the gas sensor (10) in the ultra-low power mode and the normal power mode.
