  • Publication number: 20200401161
    Abstract: A method estimates an intention of a lead vehicle by an ego vehicle. The method includes: (a) receiving, from at least one of a first plurality of sensors coupled to the ego vehicle, information associated with a parametric variable, (b) selecting a partition of an operating region of the parametric variable based on the parametric variable information, wherein the operating region includes a predetermined range of values for the parametric variable, wherein the partition includes a subset of the predetermined range of values and being associated with a predetermined ego vehicle input, and wherein the predetermined vehicle input includes at least one value for a parameter corresponding to dynamics of the ego vehicle, and (c) causing a vehicle control system of the ego vehicle to perform a vehicle maneuver based on the predetermined ego vehicle input.

  • Publication number: 20200339123
    Abstract: In one aspect, the present disclosure provides a method in a data processing system comprising at least one processor and at least one memory, the at least one memory comprising instructions executed by the at least one processor to implement a vehicle overtaking monitoring system. The method comprises receiving, from a first plurality of sensors coupled to an ego vehicle, lead vehicle data about a lead vehicle, inferring an estimated intention of the lead vehicle based on the lead vehicle data, selecting an intention model from a plurality of intention models based on the estimated intention, calculating a set of permissible driving inputs of the ego vehicle based on the intention model, calculating at least one driver input range based on the set of permissible driving inputs, and causing the at least one driver input range to be displayed to a driver of the ego vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20200298859
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a method in a data processing system that includes at least one processor and at least one memory. The at least one memory includes instructions executed by the at least one processor to implement a vehicle overtaking system. The method includes causing a vehicle control system in an ego vehicle to execute at least a portion of an input control sequence, receiving, from a first plurality of sensors coupled to the ego vehicle, lead vehicle data about a lead vehicle, estimating an intention of the lead vehicle based on the lead vehicle data, and causing the vehicle control system to perform a vehicle maneuver based on the intention of the lead vehicle.

  • Publication number: 20200238987
    Abstract: A method of the disclosure implements a prefix-based estimator system. The method includes: receiving a plurality of vehicle states at a plurality of time points from at least one sensor coupled to a vehicle, wherein each of the plurality of vehicle states includes at least one parameter information and a discrete state; determining a most recent vehicle state of the plurality of vehicle states has at least one parameter information missing; identifying a prefix comprising a missing data pattern that matches a sequence of discrete states of a subset of time-ordered vehicle states including the most recent vehicle state, wherein the subset of time-ordered vehicle states correspond to the prefix, calculating an estimated updated vehicle state of the vehicle using an optimized prefix-based dynamic estimator based on the prefix and the subset of time ordered vehicle states; and providing the estimated updated vehicle state to a driving control system of the vehicle.
