  • Patent number: 12030502
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for vehicle navigation. In one implementation, at least one processor may receive, from a camera of a vehicle, at least one image captured from an environment of the vehicle. The processor may analyze the at least one image to identify a road topology feature in the environment of the vehicle represented in the at least one image and at least one point associated with the at least one image. Based on the identified road topology feature, the processor may determine an estimated path in the environment of the vehicle associated with the at least one point. The processor may further cause the vehicle to implement a navigational action based on the estimated path.

  • Patent number: 11897518
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to navigational systems for vehicles. In one implementation, such a navigational system may a first output from a first sensor and a second output from a second sensor; identify a target object in the first output; and determine, based on the first output, a detected driving condition associated with the target object and whether the condition triggers a navigational constraint. If the navigational constraint is triggered, the system may cause a first navigational adjustment. If the navigational constraint is not triggered, the system may determine whether a representation of the target object is included in the second output. If the representation of the target object is included in the second output, the system may cause a second navigational adjustment. If the representation of the target object is not included in the second output, the system may forego any navigational adjustments.

  • Publication number: 20230202473
    Abstract: Systems and methods for navigating a host vehicle are disclosed. In one implementation, a system includes a processor configured to receive from a camera onboard the host vehicle a captured image representative of an environment of the host vehicle. The captured image is provided to a trained system. The trained system is configured to infer an output from the captured image a presence of a curved road segment in the captured image, wherein the curved road segment is associated with a road on which the host vehicle is traveling. The processor is configured to receive the output provided by the training system. The output includes at least one speed value for the host vehicle. The at least one speed value output from the trained system is based on a proximity of the host vehicle to the curved road segment and based on at least one characteristic of the curved road segment represented in the captured image.

  • Publication number: 20230166729
    Abstract: An autonomous system may selectively displace human driver control of a host vehicle. The system may receive an image representative of an environment of the host vehicle and detect an obstacle in the environment of the host vehicle based on analysis of the image. The system may monitor a driver input to a throttle, brake, and/or steering control associated with the host vehicle. The system may determine whether the driver input would result in the host vehicle navigating within a proximity buffer relative to the obstacle. If the driver input would not result in the host vehicle navigating within the proximity buffer, the system may allow the driver input to cause a corresponding change in one or more host vehicle motion control systems. If the driver input would result in the host vehicle navigating within the proximity buffer, the system may prevent the driver input from causing the corresponding change.
