  • Publication number: 20230135554
    Abstract: A method and system are disclosed for calculating a friction index for an indoor space to identify routing through the indoor space that avoids high friction regions, where friction is impedance to movement caused by obstructions. The system collects and processes data from sensors that detect attributes of obstructions and/or sensors that detect environmental conditions that indicate the presence of obstructions to calculate the friction index. Sensors can be location based or carried by persons. The system provides a navigation route that avoids high friction regions as an output.

  • Patent number: 11605233
    Abstract: An apparatus, method and computer program product are provided for determining a state of visibility of a road object, such as a road sign, using vehicle sensor data. For example, the apparatus determines whether one or more sensors of a first vehicle observes a road sign. If the road sign is not observed by the one or more sensors, the apparatus determines whether one or more second vehicles is obscuring the road sign. If the one or more second vehicles is not obscuring the road sign, the apparatus determines whether the road sign is obscured due to a weather condition. If the road sign is obscured due to the weather condition, the apparatus generates a signal indicating that the road sign was obscured due to the weather condition.
