  • Publication number: 20210114586
    Abstract: Systems and methods for automated driving vehicle parking detection are described herein. The systems and methods are directed to detecting an available space, the available space comprising a space dimension larger than the automated driving vehicle, detecting a road marker associated with the available space, and determining that the available space is not a parking space based on the road marker and the space dimension. The systems and methods are also directed to guiding the automated driving vehicle to park in the available space in response to determining that the available space is not the parking space, and activating an occlusion prevention subsystem.

  • Publication number: 20210112388
    Abstract: Disclosed embodiments prioritize gaps in V2X coverage and then selectively route traffic based on the prioritized gaps. Some embodiments combine historical vehicle presence along a route with predicted prospective vehicle traffic along the route to generate a map of regions that have a high confidence of a need for V2X coverage. This high confidence map is compared to a historical V2X coverage in those regions. From this comparison, a set of high priority V2X gaps is identified. Vehicles are then selectively routed either around or into the gaps.

  • Publication number: 20210110170
    Abstract: Described herein is a high confidence ground truth information service executing on a network of edge computing devices. A variety of participating devices obtain high confidence ground truth information relating to objects in a local environment. This information is communicated to the ground truth information service, where it may be verified and aggregated with similar information before being communicated as part of an acquired ground truth dataset to one or more subscribing devices. The subscribing devices use the ground truth information, as included in the ground truth dataset, to both validate and improve their supervised learning systems.

  • Publication number: 20210108933
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems and methods for dynamically minimizing a perceived risk for a multimodal mobility service, The systems and methods may include identifying a safety-related attribute for a route from a starting location to an ending location. The safety-related attribute may be associated with a perceived risk for a dimension of the route. A risk score for the route may be determined using the safety-related attribute. The risk score for the multimodal mobility service based on the perceived risk for the dimension of the route.

  • Publication number: 20210112417
    Abstract: V2X trusted agents provide technical solutions for technical problems facing falsely reported locations of connected vehicles within V2X systems. These trusted agents (e.g., trusted members) may be used to detect an abrupt physical attenuation of a wireless signal and determine whether the attenuation was caused by signal occlusion caused by the presence of an untrusted vehicle or other untrusted object. When the untrusted vehicle is sending a message received by trusted agents, these temporary occlusions allow trusted members to collaboratively estimate the positions of untrusted vehicles in the shared network, and to detect misbehavior by associating the untrusted vehicle with reported positions. Trusted agents may also be used to pinpoint specific mobile targets. Information about one or more untrusted vehicles may be aggregated and distributed as a service.

  • Publication number: 20210103487
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method may include obtaining, from a system using a middleware component of the system, run-time evidence of the system; applying the obtained run-time evidence to a Directed Acyclic Graph (DAG) Bayesian network to determine marginal probabilities for one or more nodes of the DAG Bayesian network, wherein the DAG Bayesian network comprises a plurality of nodes each representing states and faults of the system, wherein each node includes a parameterized conditional probability distribution, and wherein one or more of the nodes of the plurality of nodes specify a list of one or more safety goals and a safety value; determining which nodes representing faults have probabilities exceeding their specified safety value; and determining one or more risk mitigation techniques to activate for the determined nodes representing faults with probabilities exceeding their respective safety value.

  • Patent number: 10872527
    Abstract: Various systems and methods for a roadside network. The roadside network includes one or more processors to receive gather traffic data from a first set and a second set of sensors associated with a first sector and second sector, respectfully. A minimum forward visibility range is determined. Portions of the sectors overlap to provide the minimum forward visibility range. Processed traffic data is generated based on the traffic data for both sectors. The processed traffic data is then sent to antennas to be transmitted to the respective sector.

  • Publication number: 20200162901
    Abstract: Various embodiments are generally directed to techniques for providing improved privacy protection against vehicle tracking for connected vehicles of a vehicular network. For example, at least one road side unit may: identify a set of vehicles that require pseudonym changes and send an invitation for a pseudonym change event to each of the vehicles, determine at least a total number of the acceptances, determine whether the total number meets or exceeds a predetermined threshold number, send acknowledgement messages to the accepting vehicles if the threshold number is met, and form a vehicle group to coordinate the pseudonym change event during a privacy period. During the privacy period, the RSU and the vehicles may communicate with each other in a confidential and private manner via key-session-based unicast transmission, and coordinate transmission power and vehicle trajectory adjustments to maximize the benefits for safety and obfuscation for privacy.
