  • Patent number: 10807599
    Abstract: In one embodiment, in response to a route from a source location to a target location, the route is analyzed to identify a list of one or more driving scenarios along the route that match one or more predetermined driving scenarios. The route is segmented into a list of route segments based on the driving scenarios. At least one of the route segments corresponds to one of the identified driving scenarios. A path is generated based on the route segments for driving an autonomous driving vehicle from the source location to the target location. The path includes a number of path segments corresponding to the route segments. At least one of the path segments of the path is determined based on a preconfigured path segment of a predetermined driving scenario associated with the path segment, without having to calculating the same at real time.

  • Publication number: 20200125091
    Abstract: A first localization system performs a first localization using a first set of sensors to track locations of the ADV along the path from a starting point to a destination point. A first localization curve is generated as a result representing the locations of the ADV along the path tracked by the first localization system. Currently, a second localization system performs a second localization using a second set of sensors to track the locations of the ADV along the path. A second localization curve is generated as a result representing the locations of the ADV along the path tracked by the second localization system. A system delay of the second localization system is determined by comparing the second localization curve against the first localization curve as a localization reference.

  • Patent number: 10549752
    Abstract: A lane departure detection system detects that an autonomous driving vehicle (ADV) is departing from the lane in which the ADV is driving based on sensor data captured when the ADV contact a deceleration curb such as a speed bump laid across the lane. When the ADV contacts the deceleration curb, the lane departure detection system detects and calculates an angle of a moving direction of the ADV vs a longitudinal direction of the deceleration curb. Based on the angle, the system calculates how much the moving direction of the ADV is off compared to a lane direction of the lane. The lane direction is typically substantially perpendicular to the longitudinal direction of the deceleration curb. A control command such as a speed control command and/or a steering control command is generated based on the angle to correct the moving direction of the ADV.

  • Patent number: 10534364
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an autonomous driving vehicle (ADV) speed following system determines how much and when to apply a throttle or a brake control of an ADV to maneuver the ADV around, or to avoid, obstacles of a planned route. The speed following system calculates a first torque force to accelerate the ADV, a second torque force to counteract frictional forces and wind resistances to maintain a reference speed, and a third torque force to minimize an initial difference and external disturbances thereafter between predefined target speed and actual speed of the ADV over a planned route. The speed following system determines a throttle-brake torque force based on the first, second, and third torque forces and utilizes the throttle-brake torque force to control a subsequent speed of the ADV.

  • Patent number: 10488205
    Abstract: In one embodiment, when an ADV is driving on a road segment, a driving parameter is recorded in response to a first control command. A difference between the first driving parameter and a target driving parameter corresponding to the first control command is determined. In response to determining that the difference exceeds a predetermined threshold, a second control command is issued to compensate the difference and cause the ADV to drive with a second driving parameter closer to the target driving parameter. A slope status of the road segment is derived based on at least the second control command. Map data of a map corresponding to the road segment of the road is updated based on the derived slope status. The updated map can be utilized to generate and issue proper control commands in view of the slope status of the road when the ADV drives on the same road subsequently.

  • Patent number: 10452074
    Abstract: When an ADV is detected to transition from a manual driving mode to an autonomous driving mode, a first pedal value corresponding to a speed of the ADV at a previous command cycle during which the ADV was operating in the manual driving mode is determined. A second pedal value is determined based on a target speed of the ADV at a current command cycle during which the ADV is operating in an autonomous driving mode. A pedal value represents a pedal percentage of a maximum pedal pressure or maximum pedal pressed distance of a throttle pedal or brake pedal from a neutral position. A speed command is generated and issued to the ADV based on the first pedal value and the second pedal value, such that the ADV runs in a similar acceleration before and after switching from the manual driving mode to the autonomous driving mode.

  • Patent number: 10407076
    Abstract: In one embodiment, planning data is received, for example, from a planning module, to drive an autonomous driving vehicle (ADV) from a starting location and a destination location. In response, a series of control commands are generated based on the planning data, where the control commands are to be applied at different points in time from the starting location to the destination location. A cost is calculated by applying a cost function to the control commands, a first road friction to be estimated in a current trip, and a second road friction estimated during a prior trip from the starting location to the destination location. The first road friction of the current trip is estimated using the cost function in view of a prior termination cost of the prior trip, such that the cost reaches minimum.

  • Patent number: 10365649
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a lane departure detection system detects at a first point in time that a wheel of an ADV rolls onto a lane curb disposed on an edge of a lane in which the ADV is moving. The system detects at a second point in time that the wheel of the ADV rolls off the lane curb of the lane. The system calculates an angle between a moving direction of the ADV and a lane direction of the lane based on the time difference between the first point in time and the second point in time in view of a current speed of the ADV. The system then generates a control command based on the angle to adjust the moving direction of the ADV in order to prevent the ADV from further drifting off the lane direction of the lane.
