  • Publication number: 20220371594
    Abstract: An automotive electronic dynamics control system for an automated motor-vehicle. The electronic dynamics control system is designed to implement two distinct Model Predictive Control (MPC)-based Trajectory Planners comprising a Longitudinal Trajectory Planner designed to compute a planned longitudinal trajectory for the automated motor-vehicle; and a Lateral Trajectory Planner designed to compute a planned lateral trajectory for the automated motor-vehicle. The electronic dynamics control system is further designed to cause the planned longitudinal trajectory to be computed before the planned lateral trajectory.

  • Publication number: 20220306113
    Abstract: An automotive active lane change assist designed to cause a motor vehicle to carry out autonomous-driving lane change manoeuvres and to customize the autonomous-driving lane change manoeuvres based on manual-driving lane change habits of a driver of the motor vehicle learnt during one or different manual-driving sessions of the motor vehicle. The automotive active lane change assist is further designed to customize the autonomous-driving lane change manoeuvres based on manual-driving lane change habits of a driver of the motor vehicle by determining one or different autonomous-driving lane change settings for one or different drivers of the motor vehicle and for one or different types or categories of roads along which the motor vehicle can carry out autonomous-driving lane change manoeuvres.

  • Publication number: 20220169247
    Abstract: An automotive electronic dynamics control system for a motor-vehicle equipped with and automotive automated driving system designed to cause the motor-vehicle to perform low-speed manoeuvres in automated driving. The automotive automated driving system comprises an automotive sensory system designed to detect motor-vehicle-related quantities, and automotive actuators comprising an Electric Power Steering, a Braking System, and a Powertrain. The electronic dynamics control system is designed to implement a Driving Path Planner designed to: receive data representative of static obstacles in the surroundings of the motor-vehicle and representing static space constraints to the motion of the motor-vehicle, and compute, based on the received data, a planned driving path for the motor-vehicle during a low-speed manoeuvre performed in automated driving.

  • Publication number: 20220161819
    Abstract: An automotive electronic driving speed control system configured to control the driving speed of the motor-vehicle along a recurring path travelled by the motor-vehicle in assisted- or autonomous-driving based on one or more driver-specific driving speed profiles of the motor-vehicle learnt during one or more previous travels of the same path along which the motor-vehicle is manually driven by the specific driver.

  • Publication number: 20220080954
    Abstract: An automotive electronic lateral dynamics control system of an autonomous motor vehicle, comprising a lateral driving path planner designed to plan a lateral driving path of the autonomous motor vehicle and defined by a reference curvature of the autonomous motor vehicle; an automotive electronic driving stability control system designed to control an automotive braking system to apply to the autonomous motor vehicle a yaw torque to hinder a driving instability condition of the autonomous motor vehicle; and an automotive electronic steering control system designed to control an automotive steering system to apply to the autonomous motor vehicle a steering angle or torque to cause the autonomous motor vehicle to follow the lateral driving path planned by the lateral driving path planner.

  • Patent number: 11273828
    Abstract: An automotive electronic preventive active safety system comprising a control module configured to receive data indicative of a current position of a vehicle, of roads and characteristics thereof including road curvature, and of potential driving routes of the motor-vehicle from a current position up to an electronic horizon thereof. If a current speed of the vehicle at the current position is greater than or equal to a driving speed determined by a driving speed profile for the current position, the control module is configured to at least one of: command the motor-vehicle to decelerate to the driving speed determined by the driving speed profile for the current position; and generate a request to a driver of the motor-vehicle to decelerate the motor-vehicle to the driving speed determined by the driving speed profile for the current position.

  • Publication number: 20200156638
    Abstract: An automotive electronic preventive active safety system designed to improve driving stability of a motor-vehicle and to: receive data indicative of a current position of the motor-vehicle, and of roads and their characteristics comprising a road curvature, and of potential driving routes of the motor-vehicle from a current position up to an electronic horizon thereof; identify the most driving-safety-critical road bend along the driving route of the motor-vehicle; backwards compute, from the most driving-safety-critical road bend and up to the current position of the motor-vehicle, a driving speed profile that the motor-vehicle should follow from its current position up to the identified most driving-safety-critical road bend to result in the latter being driven through at a driving speed that satisfies a driving safety criterion; compare the current and backwards-computed speeds of the motor-vehicle in the current position thereof; and, if the current speed of the motor-vehicle in its current position is gr
