    This paper introduces a novel LiDAR point cloud data encoding solution that is compact, flexible, and fully supports distributed data storage within the Hadoop distributed computing environment. The proposed data encoding solution is developed based on Sequence File and Google Protocol Buffers. Sequence File is a generic splittable binary file format built in the Hadoop framework for storage of arbitrary binary data. The key challenge in adopting the Sequence File format for LiDAR data is in the strategy for effectively encoding the LiDAR data as binary sequences in a way that the data can be represented compactly, while allowing necessary mutation. For that purpose, a data encoding solution, based on Google Protocol Buffers (a language-neutral, cross-platform, extensible data serialisation framework) was developed and evaluated. Since neither of the underlying technologies is sufficient to completely and efficiently represent all necessary point formats for distributed computing, an innovative fusion of them was required to provide a viable data storage solution. This paper presents the details of such a data encoding implementation and rigorously evaluates the efficiency of the proposed data encoding solution. Benchmarking was done against a straightforward, naive text encoding implementation using a high-density aerial LiDAR scan of a portion of Dublin, Ireland. The results demonstrated a 6-times reduction in data volume, a 4-times reduction in database ingestion time, and up to a 5 times reduction in querying time.

  2. A bstract Charged-lepton-flavor-violation is predicted in several new physics scenarios. We update the analysis of τ lepton decays into a light charged lepton ( ℓ = e ± or μ ± ) and a vector meson ( V 0 = ρ 0 , ϕ , ω , K *0 , or $$ \overline{K} $$ K ¯ *0 ) using 980 fb − 1 of data collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB collider. No significant excess of such signal events is observed, and thus 90% credibility level upper limits are set on the τ → ℓV 0 branching fractions in the range of (1.7–4 . 3) × 10 − 8 . These limits are improved by 30% on average from the previous results.
