  • Publication number: 20200226790
    Abstract: A sensor calibrator comprising one or more processors configured to receive sensor data representing a calibration pattern detected by a sensor during a period of relative motion between the sensor and the calibration pattern in which the sensor or the calibration pattern move along a linear path of travel; determine a calibration adjustment from the plurality of images; and send a calibration instruction for calibration of the sensor according to the determined calibration adjustment. Alternatively, a sensor calibration detection device, comprising one or more processors, configured to receive first sensor data detected during movement of a first sensor along a route of travel; determine a difference between the first sensor data and stored second sensor data; and if the difference is outside of a predetermined range, switch from a first operational mode to a second operational mode.

  • Publication number: 20200225622
    Abstract: An occupancy grid manager having a non-uniform occupancy which includes a plurality of cells, configurable in a plurality of cell sizes, each cell representing a region of an environment of a vehicle; and one or more processors, configured to determine one or more context factors; select a cell size for a cell of the plurality of cells based on the one or more context factors; process sensor data provided by one or more sensors; and determine a probability that the cell of the plurality of cells is occupied based on the sensor data.

  • Publication number: 20200130662
    Abstract: Aspects concern a method for controlling a braking of a vehicle. The method including detecting a braking situation, determining a classification of the braking situation, selecting a braking profile based on the determined classification, and applying a deceleration based on the selected braking profile to maintain a safety distance based on the selected braking profile.

  • 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.
