  • Publication number: 20200387156
    Abstract: Systems and methods of the present disclosure include a motion planning module that iteratively determines possible trajectories for a vehicle to follow, calculates an estimated cost associated with each possible trajectory based on cost functions and cost weights, each cost function corresponding to a trajectory evaluation feature, and selects an optimal trajectory having a least associated estimated cost. When the vehicle is operated in a learning mode, a learning module determines a first actual trajectory traveled by the vehicle, compares the first actual trajectory with the optimal trajectory for that time period, and updates the cost weights based on the comparison. When the vehicle is operated in a teaching mode, a teaching module determines a second actual trajectory traveled by the vehicle, compares the second actual trajectory with the optimal trajectory selected for that time period, and generates output to a user of the vehicle based on the comparison.

    Abstract: A system for setting parameters within a first vehicle for a first user of the first vehicle is provided and includes a memory, transceiver, and a processing module. The memory stores normalized parameters, which are specific to the first user. Each of the normalized parameters is a parameter of the vehicle. The transceiver receives the normalized parameters from a mobile device of the first user, a server in a cloud-based network, or a portable memory device. The processing module: determines whether the first user is authorized for parameter translation services; if the first user is authorized for parameter translation services, translates the normalized parameters to resultant parameters; generates parameter recommendations based on the resultant parameters; presents the parameter recommendations to the first user; and adjusts current parameters of the first vehicle based on the resultant parameters and a received response from the first user with regards to the parameter recommendations.
