  • Patent number: 9840254
    Abstract: Various aspects of a system and method for an autonomous vehicle, based on detection and/or application of horn, are disclosed herein. The system comprises one or more circuits in an electronic control unit (ECU) used in a first vehicle. The one or more circuits in the ECU are configured to detect a horn sound emanated from a second vehicle. First sensor data associated with the first vehicle is captured based on the detected horn sound. The captured first sensor data indicates a first traffic scenario in a vicinity of the first vehicle. Second sensor data associated with the first vehicle is captured for an elapsed time interval prior to the detection of the horn sound. One or more control systems in the first vehicle are recalibrated to perform one or more functions associated with the first vehicle. The recalibration is based on the captured first sensor data and the extracted second sensor data.

  • Publication number: 20170345299
    Abstract: Various aspects of a system and method for driving assistance along a path are disclosed herein. In accordance with an embodiment, a unique identifier is received from a communication device at an electronic control unit (ECU) of a first vehicle. The unique identifier is received when the first vehicle has reached a first location along a first portion of the path. A communication channel is established between the first vehicle and the communication device based on the received unique identifier. Data associated with a second portion of the path is received by the ECU from the communication device based on the established communication channel. Alert information associated with the second portion of the path is generated by the ECU based on the received data.

  • Publication number: 20170132922
    Abstract: Various aspects of a system and method for communication of a message to a vehicle are disclosed herein. The system comprises one or more circuits in an electronic control unit (ECU) of a first vehicle that is communicatively coupled to a display device. The one or more circuits in the ECU are configured to receive a video stream and control display of a plurality of image frames in the video stream on the display device. Vehicle information of one or more vehicles, included in an image frame of the plurality of image frames, is received from the one or more vehicles via a wireless network. A first input corresponding to a selection of a vehicle from the one or more vehicles included in the image frame, is received. Vehicle information associated with the selected vehicle is identified. A second input that corresponds to a selection of an information item to be communicated to the selected vehicle, is received. The selected information item is communicated to the selected vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20170080952
    Abstract: Various aspects of a system and method to provide driving assistance to safely overtake a vehicle are disclosed herein. In accordance with an embodiment, an electronic control unit used in a first vehicle is configured to detect a second vehicle in front of the first vehicle. A first position associated with the first vehicle and a second position associated with the detected second vehicle is determined for a first time instance. It may be determined whether a lateral distance between the determined first position and the determined second position is below a pre-defined threshold distance. A first alert is generated when the determined lateral distance is below the pre-defined threshold distance.
