  • Patent number: 10642267
    Abstract: A system and method for operating an automated vehicle includes providing a detector and a controller-circuit. The detector is configured to detect construction-objects. The controller-circuit is configured to, in accordance with a detection of a construction-object by the detector, determine that a host-vehicle is proximate to a construction-zone. The controller-circuit and the method is also configured to, in accordance with a determination that the host-vehicle is proximate the construction-zone, change control of the host-vehicle from an automated-mode characterized by the controller-circuit steering the host-vehicle to a manual-mode characterized by an occupant of the host-vehicle steering the host-vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20190329774
    Abstract: A control system for an automated vehicle includes a receiver, an alert-device, and a controller-circuit. The receiver is configured to receive a report of a takeover-event broadcast by another-vehicle at a location, said takeover-event characterized by an other-operator of the other-vehicle engaging a manual-mode of operation of the other-vehicle at the location while the other-vehicle was being operated in an automated-mode. The alert-device is operable to notify a host-operator of a host-vehicle. The controller-circuit is in communication with the receiver and the alert-device. The controller-circuit is configured to, in response to a determination that the host-vehicle is approaching the location, operate the alert-device to notify the host-operator of the host-vehicle about the takeover-event by the other-operator of the other-vehicle at the location.

  • Publication number: 20190287262
    Abstract: A system includes a camera and a controller-circuit. The camera renders a present-image of a host-vehicle loaded with cargo. The present-image depicts the host-vehicle and the cargo carried by the host-vehicle. The cargo protrudes beyond a base-outline of the host-vehicle without cargo. The controller-circuit is in communication with the camera. The controller-circuit is configured to determine, in accordance with the present-image, a size of the host-vehicle and the cargo combined. The size is indicative of at least one of a length of the host-vehicle and the cargo combined, a height of the host-vehicle and the cargo combined, and a width of the host-vehicle and the cargo combined. The controller-circuit is also configured to operate the host-vehicle in accordance with the size.
