  • Patent number: 12012097
    Abstract: Systems and methods for complementary control of an autonomous vehicle (AV) are disclosed. The methods include receiving information comprising an active trajectory of an AV that the AV intends to following for a planning horizon. The methods also include using the active trajectory to identify one or more regions in an environment of the AV such as a fallback monitoring region (FMR) and an active monitoring region (AMR), and generating one or more instructions for causing the AV to execute a collision mitigation action in response to an object being detected within the AMR. The methods further include transmitting the one or more instructions to an AV platform (AVP) for execution.

  • Publication number: 20240124026
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, method, and computer program product embodiments for an asymmetrical Autonomous Vehicle Systems (AVS). A backup AVS is implemented on a vehicle to serve as a failover system for one or more of the primary AVS components or processes (e.g., steering, braking, etc.). In this way, during primary AVS failures, the backup AVS can dynamically handle a subset of vehicle operations in various component configuration levels based on a desired mission level.

  • Patent number: 11192543
    Abstract: Apparatuses and methods for automated parking of autonomous vehicles are provided herein. An example method includes receiving, by an automated driving system of an autonomous vehicle, a pull over request during a trip to a destination; initiating, by the automated driving system, a pull over sequence, the pull over sequence including determining if the autonomous vehicle is within a pre-determined distance from the destination; stopping the autonomous vehicle when the autonomous vehicle is within the pre-determined distance; and when the autonomous vehicle is not within the pre-determined distance, initiating a parking sequence to park the autonomous vehicle at a nearest available parking location.

  • Patent number: 11169520
    Abstract: A computer in a vehicle includes first and second electronic control units (ECUs). The first and second ECUs are programmed to monitor, respectively, a first operating condition and a second operating condition. Each operating condition includes one of path deviation, lane width, user awareness, or steering torque. The second ECU is programmed to monitor the second operating condition according to a protocol with a security measure. The first or second ECU is further programmed to control vehicle operation based on the first or second operating condition.
