Title
(DE) AUTONOM FAHRENDE FAHRZEUGE MIT INTERNEN SICHERHEITSSYSTEMEN
(EN) INTERNAL SAFETY SYSTEMS AUTONOMOUS DRIVEN VEHICLES
(FR) SYSTÈMES DE SÉCURITÉ INTERNES POUR VÉHICULES ROBOTISÉS
Abstract
(EN)
Systems, apparatus and methods implemented in algorithms, hardware, software, firmware, logic, or circuitry may be configured to process data and sensory input to determine whether an object external to an autonomous vehicle (e.g., another vehicle, a pedestrian, road debris, a bicyclist, etc.) may be a potential collision threat to the autonomous vehicle. The autonomous vehicle may be configured to implement interior active safety systems to protect passengers of the autonomous vehicle during a collision with an object or during evasive maneuvers by the autonomous vehicle, for example. The interior active safety systems may be configured to provide passengers with notice of an impending collision and/or emergency maneuvers by the vehicle by tensioning seat belts prior to executing an evasive maneuver and/or prior to a predicted point of collision.

(FR)
Cette invention concerne des systèmes, des appareils et des procédés mis en œuvre dans des algorithmes, du matériel, des logiciels, des micrologiciels, des logiques ou des circuits éventuellement configurés pour traiter des données et des entrées sensorielles pour déterminer si un objet externe à un véhicule autonome (par exemple un autre véhicule, un piéton, des débris routiers, un cycliste, etc.) constitue une menace de collision potentielle pour le véhicule autonome. Le véhicule autonome peut être configuré pour mettre en œuvre des systèmes de sécurité internes actifs pour protéger les occupants du véhicule autonome lors d'une collision avec un objet ou pendant des manœuvres d'évitement par le véhicule autonome, par exemple. Le système de sécurité interne actif peut être configuré pour fournir aux passagers une indication d'une collision imminente et/ou de manœuvres d'urgence par le véhicule par le serrage des ceintures de sécurité avant l'exécution d'une manœuvre d'évitement et/ou avant un point de collision prédit.
