(FR) APPLICATION LOGICIELLE DE REQUÊTE ET DE COMMANDE D'UN SERVICE DE VÉHICULES AUTONOMES
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. In particular, a method may include receiving, from a user device, a ride request to transport a user to a destination from an origin location through an autonomous vehicle system service. Based on the origin location associated with the request, an autonomous vehicle system may be selected from a fleet of autonomous vehicles to execute the ride request. The fleet may be managed by the autonomous vehicle system service. The ride request may then be provided to the autonomous vehicle system, and information about the autonomous vehicle system may also be provided to the user device.
(FR) Selon divers modes de réalisation, cette invention concerne de manière générale des véhicules autonomes et un matériel mécanique, électrique et électronique associé, des logiciels et des systèmes informatiques, et des systèmes de communication sur réseau filaire et sans fil pour la fourniture d'une flotte de véhicules autonomes en tant que service. En particulier, un procédé selon l'invention consiste éventuellement à recevoir, en provenance d'un dispositif utilisateur, une requête de course pour transporter un utilisateur à une destination à partir d'un emplacement d'origine au moyen d'un système de service de véhicules autonomes. Sur la base de la localisation d'origine associée à la requête, un système de véhicule autonome peut être choisi dans une flotte de véhicules autonomes pour exécuter la requête de course. La flotte peut être géré par le service de systèmes de véhicules autonomes. La requête de course peut ensuite être fournie au système de véhicule autonome, et des informations concernant le système de véhicule autonome peuvent également être fournies à l'utilisateur.
