  • Publication number: 20200130682
    Abstract: In some aspects, a safety system may be configured to receive vehicle position data indicating a position of a vehicle, determine a first lane segment in a lane coordinate system based on the vehicle position data, the first lane segment being a lane segment in which the vehicle is located, determine a relevant set of lane segments based on a safety-range from the first lane segment, determine or receive obstacle position data indicating a second lane segment in the lane coordinate system, the second lane segment being a lane segment in which an obstacle is located, and classify the obstacle either as a non-relevant obstacle in the case that the second lane segment is not included in the relevant set of lane segments, or as a relevant obstacle in the case that the second lane segment is included in the relevant set of lane segments.

  • Publication number: 20200017102
    Abstract: According to various aspects, a safety module is described including: one or more processors configured to receive road information representing a geometry of one or more roads in a Cartesian coordinate system, determine a lane coordinate system based on the received road information, the lane coordinate system including a plurality of lane segments arranged along a longitudinal direction and along a lateral direction of the lane coordinate system, wherein a length information and a width information are assigned to each of the lane segments, and determine a potential collision event based on the lane coordinate system.

  • Patent number: 10442355
    Abstract: Technologies for visualizing moving objects on a bowl-shaped image include a computing device to receive a first fisheye image generated by a first fisheye camera and capturing a first scene and a second fisheye image generated by a second fisheye camera and capturing a second scene overlapping with the first scene at an overlapping region. The computing device identifies a moving object in the overlapping region and modifies a projected overlapping image region to visualize the identified moving object on a virtual bowl-shaped projection surface. The projected overlapping image region is projected on the virtual bowl-shaped projection surface and corresponds with the overlapping region captured in the first and second fisheye images.

  • Patent number: 8639441
    Abstract: A vehicle navigation system includes a Kalman filter having a first filter receiving satellite positioning data and a second filter receiving vehicle sensor data. The first filter generates a first state vector estimate and a corresponding first state error covariance matrix. The second filter generates a second state vector estimate and a corresponding second state error covariance matrix. A third filter receives the first and second state vector estimates and the first and second state error covariance matrices, and generates a combined state vector estimate and a corresponding combined state error covariance matrix. A prediction processor generates a predicted state vector estimate and a predicted state error covariance matrix from the combined state vector estimate and the combined state error covariance matrix. The predicted state vector estimate and the predicted state error covariance matrix are provided to the first filter, the second filter, and the third filter.
