  • Publication number: 20240199060
    Abstract: A system, a method and a computer program product are provided to determine a left turn decision for a user or autonomous vehicle attempting to turn at an intersection of a road. For example, the system obtains contextual features and/or sensor data related to the intersection of the road. An optimal location on the road is determined for the user or autonomous vehicle to position the vehicle to make the left turn decision, based on the contextual features and/or the sensor data. A left turn risk factor is determined based on the location on the road for the user or autonomous vehicle to position the vehicle to make a left turn. An alert is presented to the user or autonomous vehicle regarding the left turn risk factor with a left turn advisory message.

  • Patent number: 11994396
    Abstract: An approach is provided for providing drop-off locations for passengers of a vehicle to reach different destinations via a multimodal route. A routing platform receives a request to generate a navigation route, i.e., a multi-point intermodal route that directs the passengers to reach the destinations using the vehicle in combination with the other mode of transport. The routing platform further computes the navigation route based on an optimization parameter to include a route taken by the vehicle and at least one intermodal route leg. The navigation route includes drop-off locations where subsets of the passengers access the other mode of transport to complete the at least one intermodal route leg to at least one of the destinations. The optimization parameter is minimized with respect to the route taken by the vehicle and/or the at least one intermodal route leg.

  • Publication number: 20240151541
    Abstract: An approach is provided for computation of risk index. The approach, for example, involves acquiring historical probe data associated with an area. The historical probe data comprises data associated with distribution of vehicles entering or leaving the area in a given time partition. The approach further involves obtaining map feature data associated with an entrance or exit of the area, from a geographical database. The map feature data comprises data associated with physical objects in vicinity of the area. The approach further involves computing a risk index for the entrance or the exit for the given time partition, based on the historical probe data and the map feature data. The risk index indicates a probability of occurrence of a hazard in the vicinity of the entrance or the exit. The approach further involves storing the risk index as an attribute of the entrance or the exit in the geographic database.
