Abstract

A computer implemented method for controlling a load aggregator for a grid includes receiving a predicted power demand over a horizon of time steps associated with one of at least two buildings, aggregating the predicted power demand at each time step to obtain an aggregate power demand, applying a learnable convolutional filter on the aggregate power demand to obtain a target load, computing a difference between the predicted power demand of the one building with the target load to obtain a power shift associated with the one building over the horizon of time steps, apportioning the power shift according to a learnable weighted vector to obtain an apportioned power shift, optimizing the learnable weighted vector and the learnable convolutional filter via an evolutionary strategy based update to obtain an optimized apportioned power shift, and transmitting the optimized apportioned power shift to a building level controller associated with the one building.

For each remaining connection pattern a number of route profiles which correspond to the connection pattern are counted. A connection pattern with the highest number of matching route profiles is selected. A control device, a computer program, and a machine-readable storage medium are also described.

Abstract

A method for providing time information in a GNSS receiver includes receiving at least one time counter variable from a GNSS satellite. The at least one time counter variable describes a number of time intervals that have passed since a time start value, and a data length of the time counter variable limited to a maximum number of countable time intervals. The method also includes reading an offset variable out of a non-volatile memory held in the GNSS receiver. The offset variable describes a time previously received and reconstructed by the GNSS satellite, and a data length of the offset variable exceeds the data length of the time counter variable. The method further includes carrying out a remainder division of the offset variable with a maximum number given by the data length of the at least one time counter variable in order to determine an offset time counter variable.

Abstract

The present disclosure proposes a method for checking integrity of an Al model using distributed ledger technology (DLT) and a system thereof. The proposed method leverages the state-of-the-art watermarking mechanism and ties it up with DLT to generate proof of origin (provenance) in a tamper-proof way. The Al model is registered on the distributed ledger (DL) by uploading full checksum, selective checksums, watermark data and at least the predefined output of the watermark data, a unique model ID is received upon registration. The ownership and integrity of Al model is then determined by matching the model and the output of the watermark data followed by verification of the full and selective checksum of the Al model.

Abstract

A method for operating a driver assistance function to support a lateral control of a vehicle is provided. A permissible range for a steering torque component which the driver assistance function is able to exert on the steering of the vehicle is predefined. The permissible range is specified by upper and lower limits. The upper and lower limits of the permissible range be adapted as a function of a current vehicle state. The vehicle state is given relative to a lane center, for example, by the position, the velocity, the acceleration and the sudden motion, by the respective component of this variable in the lateral direction. An adjustable range of the driver feedback is determined based on the vehicle state and the lateral acceleration. From this and the consideration of a disturbance compensation, the permissible range of the steering torque component of the assistance function is ascertained.
