  • Patent number: 11854400
    Abstract: An apparatus, method and computer program product are provided for predicting events in which drivers fail to see curbs while the drivers are maneuvering vehicles. In one example, the apparatus receives vehicle attribute data associated with a first vehicle, map data indicating one or more attributes of a road portion including a first curb, and sensor data indicating an orientation of a first driver within the first vehicle. The apparatus causes a machine learning model to render an output as a function of the vehicle attribute data, the map data, and the sensor data. The output indicates a likelihood of which the first driver will not be able to see the first curb at the road portion when the first driver is maneuvering the first vehicle. The machine learning model is trained to predict the output based on historical data indicating events in which second drivers maneuvered second vehicles to encounter the first curb or one or more second curbs.

  • Publication number: 20230408276
    Abstract: A network apparatus, for example, obtains probe data corresponding to a respective vehicle making a late lane change while traversing a TME of a traversable network. Location information indicating a location of the late lane change is extracted from the probe data. Map, weather, and/or traffic data for the location is obtained. A late lane change feature description is generated based on information extracted from the probe data and the map, weather, and/or traffic data. A model is trained using a machine learning technique and training data comprising the late lane change feature description. The model is executed to generate a late lane change prediction corresponding to a TME of a digital map. The network apparatus causes at least one of (a) the digital map to be updated, (b) traffic data corresponding to the TME to be updated, or (c) a navigation-related function to be performed based on the prediction.

  • Publication number: 20230400312
    Abstract: An approach is provided for machine learning of vehicular wait events. The approach, for instance, involves processing a sensor observation to determine a wait event. The wait event indicates that at least one person is in a wait state. The approach also involves processing the sensor observation to determine one or more contextual features associated with a location of the wait event, a time of the wait event, the at least one person, or a combination thereof. The approach further involves determining a ground truth of the wait state. The approach further involves vectorizing the one or more contextual features and the ground truth into a training vector. The approach further involves using the training vector to train a machine learning model to determine predicted waiting data based on one or more input vectors. The approach further involves providing the trained machine learning model as an output.
