  • Publication number: 20170114583
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus pertaining to an intelligent vehicle access point opening system are provided. A method may involve detecting a presence of an object in a vicinity of a cover of an access point of a vehicle. The method may also involve receiving a command to open the cover and activating a mechanism to open the cover responsive to receiving the command. The method may further involve determining whether the object is likely to fall as the cover is being opened. The method may additionally involve pausing opening of the cover responsive to a determination that the object is likely to fall as the cover is being opened.

  • Publication number: 20170096102
    Abstract: Systems, methods and apparatuses are disclosed for assessing whether a vehicle will make contact with an obstacle. The systems, methods, and apparatuses may include an obstacle sensing component configured to determine a location and a dimension of an obstacle, a vehicle sensing component configured to determine a height of a point of the vehicle relative to the ground, and a notification component configured to provide an indication of a presence of the obstacle to assist a human driver or an automated driving system in parking the vehicle without making contact with the obstacle.

  • Publication number: 20170088052
    Abstract: A driving assistance system includes a drive detection component, a presence component, and a notification component. The drive detection component is configured to determine that a vehicle or driver is exiting or preparing to exit a parking location. The presence component is configured to determine, from a drive history database, whether a parking barrier is present in front of or behind the parking location. The notification component is configured to provide an indication that the parking barrier is present to a human driver or an automated driving system of the vehicle.

  • Patent number: 9598076
    Abstract: A controller for an autonomous vehicle received audio streams from one or more microphones and one or more image streams from one or more cameras. The audio streams are processed to identify audio features that potentially correspond to a motorcycle. The video streams are likewise processed to identify image objects that have movement and/or visual attributes corresponding to a motorcycle. The audio features and image objects are correlated. If a correlation is identified among the audio features and image objects, then a potentially lane-splitting motorcycle may be determined to be proximate. Actions may be taken to avoid collision with the lane-splitting motorcycle, such as avoiding lane changes, signaling longer, or performing lane changes more slowly.

  • Publication number: 20170074000
    Abstract: Example vehicle unlocking systems and methods are described. In one implementation, a method detects a vehicle access device within a predetermined distance of a vehicle and determines a geographic location of the vehicle. The method also detects a time of day and determines previous door unlocking behavior associated with the vehicle access device. A vehicle access point is selected for unlocking based on the geographic location, time of day, and previous door unlocking behavior.
