  • Patent number: 11390285
    Abstract: An automated lane change system for a motor vehicle includes one or more environmental sensors for generating an input signal indicative of a position of an object relative to the motor vehicle, with the object being disposed at a distance from the motor vehicle. The input signal is further indicative of a velocity of the object relative to the motor vehicle. The system further includes a steering wheel sensor generating a gripped signal, in response to a driver gripping a steering wheel. A controller generates an activation signal, in response to the controller receiving the input signal from the environmental sensor and the gripped signal from the steering wheel sensor. An actuator controls the steering wheel, a propulsion mechanism, and a braking mechanism for maneuvering the motor vehicle from a current driving lane to a target driving lane, in response to the actuator receiving the activation signal from the controller.

  • Publication number: 20220144266
    Abstract: In various embodiments, methods, systems, and vehicle apparatuses are provided. A method for implementing a lane-keeping assist unit of a vehicle by receiving information of a plurality of road geometries, and driving scenarios wherein at least one driving scenario is combined with a target path that is parallel and biased from a lane center by a desired path offset, and a reference path for guiding the vehicle to merge with the target path; adapting the reference path with control based on a selected road geometry and driving scenario; adjusting the desired path offset by considering lane markings during an intervention for an inner curve, an outer curve and a straight road; controlling the vehicle trajectory for enabling the vehicle to track the reference path; exiting the intervention once a trajectory tracking performance by the vehicle is confirmed; and aborting once an instability of the trajectory tracking performance is confirmed.

  • Patent number: 11292470
    Abstract: A method to establish a lane-change maneuver, the method includes the steps of calculating a plurality of anchor points along a projected vehicle route and, based on the plurality of anchor points, generating a lane-change maneuver trajectory. The plurality of anchor points can include: a first anchor point based on time, a second anchor point where the vehicle would cross a lane boundary from a host lane to a target lane, and a third anchor point where counter steering torque would be applied to center the vehicle in the target lane.

  • Publication number: 20210026358
    Abstract: The present application relates to determining a location of an object in response to a sensor output, generating a first vehicle path in response to the location of the object and a map data, determining an undrivable area within the first vehicle path, generating a waypoint outside of the undrivable area, generating a second vehicle path from a first point on the first vehicle path to the waypoint and a third vehicle path from the waypoint to a second point on the first vehicle path such that the second vehicle path and the third vehicle path are outside of the undrivable area, generating a control signal in response to the second vehicle path, the third vehicle path and and controlling a vehicle in response to the control signal such that the vehicle follows the second vehicle path and the third vehicle path.

  • Patent number: 10864910
    Abstract: Presented are automated driving systems for intelligent vehicle control, methods for making/using such systems, and motor vehicles equipped with such automated driving systems. A method for executing an automated driving operation includes: determining path plan data for a subject motor vehicle, including current vehicle location and predicted route data; receiving, from a network of sensing devices, sensor data indicative of current object position and object dynamics of a target object; applying sensor fusion techniques to the received sensor data to determine a threat confidence value that is predictive of target object intrusion with respect to the vehicle's location and predicted route; determining if this threat confidence value is greater than a calibrated threshold value; and, responsive to the threat confidence value being greater than the calibrated threshold value, transmitting one or more command signals to one or more vehicle systems (e.g.

  • Patent number: 10752242
    Abstract: An automotive vehicle includes at least one actuator configured to control vehicle steering, shifting, acceleration, or braking, at least one sensor configured to provide signals indicative of a location and velocity of an object external to the vehicle relative to the vehicle, and at least one controller in communication with the at least one actuator and the at least one sensor. The at least one controller is configured to, in response to a signal from the at least one sensor indicating that a relative velocity between a rearward object and the vehicle exceeds a first threshold and a distance between the rearward object and the vehicle falls below a second threshold, automatically control the at least one actuator to maneuver the vehicle from a first lateral position with respect to a current driving lane to a second lateral position with respect to the current driving lane.
