  • Publication number: 20200273001
    Abstract: A system and method are provided for automatically estimating a repair cost for a vehicle. A method includes: receiving, at a server computing device over an electronic network, one or more images of a damaged vehicle from a client computing device; performing image processing operations on each of the one or more images to detect external damage to a first set of parts of the vehicle; inferring internal damage to a second set of parts of the vehicle based on the detected external damage; and, calculating an estimated repair cost for the vehicle based on the detected external damage and inferred internal damage based on accessing a parts database that includes repair and labor costs for each part in the first and second sets of parts.

  • Patent number: 7479897
    Abstract: In a method for preventing rollover for a vehicle traveling on a road, for each present position of the vehicle as it moves forward, its speed is forecasted for future positions of the vehicle on the road, based on an assumption regarding driving style of the operator, and based on a map containing road geometry data and statistical speed data for vehicles traveling said road. At each such present position of the vehicle, a maximum safe speed is determined for points on the road forward of the vehicle, based on a maximum lateral acceleration, the road geometry and the vehicle parameters. A rollover warning is generated for any current position of the vehicle at which the forecasted future speed for at least one particular point on the road forward of the vehicle exceeds the determined maximum safe speed at particular point.

  • Patent number: 7113866
    Abstract: A method for determining a lane change by a vehicle includes determining a vehicle heading using for example GPS information, determining a road heading at a location of the vehicle, and when the vehicle is on the multilane road, determining a lane change as a function of a heading difference between the vehicle heading and the road heading. A vehicle with a lane change determination device is also provided.

  • Publication number: 20050283312
    Abstract: A method for estimating an error in GPS signals used by a vehicle estimates an error in the GPS signals received by the vehicle as a function of a difference in a geometry of the GPS signals related to a curved section of the road and a geometry of the curved section of the road. A device and vehicle for utilizing the method are also provided.
