Abstract
(EN)
Various embodiments relate generally to autonomous vehicles and associated mechanical, electrical and electronic hardware, computer software and systems, and wired and wireless network communications to provide an autonomous vehicle fleet as a service. More specifically, systems, devices, and methods are configured to simulate navigation of autonomous vehicles in various simulated environments. In particular, a method may include receiving data representing characteristics of a dynamic object, calculating a classification of a dynamic object to identify a classified dynamic object, identifying data representing dynamic-related characteristics associated with the classified dynamic object, forming a data model of the classified dynamic object, simulating a predicted range of motion of the classified dynamic object in a simulated environment to form a simulated dynamic object, and simulating a predicted response of a data representation of a simulated autonomous vehicle.

Divers modes de réalisation de l'invention concernent de manière générale des véhicules autonomes et le matériel mécanique, électrique et électronique, le logiciel informatique et les systèmes associés, et les communications en réseau filaires et sans fil pour fournir une flotte de véhicules autonomes en tant que service. Plus particulièrement, les systèmes, dispositifs et procédés sont conçus pour simuler la navigation de véhicules autonomes dans divers environnements simulés. En particulier, un procédé peut consister à recevoir des données représentant des caractéristiques d'un objet dynamique, à calculer une classification d'un objet dynamique pour identifier un objet dynamique classé, à identifier des données représentant des caractéristiques liées à la dynamique associées à l'objet dynamique classé, à former un modèle de données de l'objet dynamique classé, à simuler une plage de mouvement prévue de l'objet dynamique classé dans un environnement simulé afin de former un objet dynamique simulé, et à simuler une réponse prévue d'une représentation de données d'un véhicule autonome simulé.
