    Research on the technology of intelligent vehicle sensor positioning system in autonomous driving

    In this comprehensive exploration of positioning and navigation technologies, we have delved into the intricacies of GPS (Global Positioning System), IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit), and VPS (Visual Positioning Systems) systems, shedding light on their unique attributes and applications. GPS, a global satellite-based system, offers precise positioning on a worldwide scale, although it encounters challenges in complex urban and environmental conditions. Its role in navigation and tracking is undeniable. IMU, characterized by accelerometers and gyroscopes, excels in delivering high-precision positioning over short durations, making it invaluable for applications in aviation, robotics, and virtual reality. However, it is susceptible to drift over time. Visual Positioning Systems (VPS), harnessing computer vision and visual sensors, provide remarkable sub-meter to centimeter-level accuracy when conditions are optimal. Their significance is particularly pronounced in indoor navigation, augmented reality, and robotics, although they may face challenges in less favorable environments. These technologies are not isolated but can synergize to enhance accuracy and reliability. GPS and IMU collaborate to compensate for signal disruptions, while GPS and VPS join forces to tackle urban complexities. IMU and VPS integration offer precise indoor navigation and augmented reality experiences, delivering impeccable positioning and orientation data. Ultimately, the choice of technology hinges on specific application requirements, encompassing accuracy, environmental considerations, cost factors, and the need for complementary systems. As these technologies advance, they hold the promise of revolutionizing navigation across various domains, from autonomous vehicles to immersive augmented reality environments.

    Adverse Drug Reactions prediction by combining wide & deep learning and POLY2

    Accurate prediction of Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs) holds immense importance in the field of clinical medicine and drug development. The requirement of accurate prediction spans various stages, ranging from drug design and clinical trials to marketing monitoring. The traditional ADR forecasting method has the disadvantage that it requires a lot of computing resources and is not suitable for large-scale forecasting. To address this issue, this study introduces the Wide & Deep model. This model combines the abilities of memorization and generalization to enhance the accuracy of ADR predictions. Additionally, we identify a shortcoming in the wide component of the traditional Wide & Deep model – the lack of nonlinear transformation. Therefore, we propose the inclusion of POLY2 in the Wide & Deep model to rectify this shortcoming. By incorporating POLY2, our aim is to retain the model’s memorization and generalization abilities, leverage the nonlinear relationship between features, and capture the interaction effect between drug chemical substructures for better model performance. To validate our proposed method, we conduct experiments on two datasets: the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) and PubChem. The evaluation metric utilized is the Area Under the Curve (AUC) score, which demonstrates that our method outperforms the original model. The results indicate that by combining POLY2 feature crosses with the Wide & Deep model, we have achieved significant improvements in the prediction of ADRs.
