A system includes a vehicle including a power distribution unit comprising a current protection circuit disposed in a motive electrical power path with a thermal fuse and a contactor in a series arrangement; a current source circuit electrically coupled to the thermal fuse to determine that a load power throughput is low, and to inject a current across the thermal fuse in response to the load power throughput being low; a voltage determination circuit electrically coupled to the thermal fuse to determine an injected voltage amount and/or a thermal fuse impedance value; where the power distribution unit further includes a plurality of fuses, and where the current source circuit is structured to inject the current across each fuse in a selected sequence; and where the current source circuit injects the current across a first and second fuse of the plurality of fuses at a first shutdown event.

Active learning loop-based data labeling service
Techniques for active learning-based data labeling are described. An active learning-based data labeling service enables a user to build and manage large, high accuracy datasets for use in various machine learning systems. Machine learning may be used to automate annotation and management of the datasets, increasing efficiency of labeling tasks and reducing the time required to perform labeling. Embodiments utilize active learning techniques to reduce the amount of a dataset that requires manual labeling. As subsets of the dataset are labeled, this label data is used to train a model which can then identify additional objects in the dataset without manual intervention. The process may continue iteratively until the model converges. This enables a dataset to be labeled without requiring each item in the dataset to be individually and manually labeled by human labelers.

Active marker device for performance capture
A performance capture system is provided to detect one or more active marker units in a live action scene. Active marker units emanate at least one wavelength of light that is captured by the performance capture system and used to detect the active markers in the scene. The system detects the presence of the light as a light patch in a capture frames and determines if the light patch represents light from an active marker unit. In some implementations, various active markers in a scene may emanate different wavelengths of light. For example, wavelengths of light from multi-emitting active marker units may be changed due to various conditions in the scene.

Active matrix substrate and display device
An active matrix substrate includes a plurality of signal lines, each of which includes first and second line portions and an inner connection portion (connection portion) that connects the first and second line portions. The first and second line portions of one of two adjacent signal lines are made of first and second conductive layers, respectively, and the first and second line portions of the other of the two adjacent signal lines are made of second and first conductive layers, respectively. The position of the connection portion of each of the signal lines is determined in accordance with the layout position of that signal line in the line region.

Active repeater device shared by multiple service providers to facilitate communication with customer premises equipment
An active repeater device including a first antenna array, a controller, and one or more secondary sectors receives or transmits a first beam of input RF signals from or to, respectively, a first base station operated by a first service provider and a second beam of input RF signals from or to, respectively, a second base station operated by a second service provider. A controller assigns a first beam setting to a first group of customer premises equipment (CPEs) and a second beam setting to a second group of CPEs, based on one or more corresponding signal parameters associated with the each corresponding group of CPEs. A second antenna array of the second RH unit concurrently transmits or received a first beam of output RF signals to or from the first group of CPEs and a second beam of output RF signals to the second group of CPEs.
