(FR) COMMANDE DE VÉHICULES AUTONOMES EN CONNEXION AVEC DES SERVICES DE TRANSPORT
Abstract
(EN) Systems for controlling autonomous vehicles are disclosed. Using one or more location detection resources, the system can receive vehicle data from an autonomous vehicle as the autonomous vehicle progresses towards a pickup location of a requesting user and receive requester data from a mobile computing device of the requester. The system can determine when the autonomous vehicle and the requester are at or within a threshold distance of the pickup location. Subsequently, the system can instruct the autonomous vehicle to perform one or more non-driving operations to facilitate use of the autonomous vehicle by the requester.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes de commande de véhicules autonomes. En utilisant une ou plusieurs ressources de détection de localisation, le système peut recevoir des données de véhicule de la part d'un véhicule autonome à mesure que le véhicule autonome progresse en direction d'un emplacement de prise en charge d'un utilisateur demandeur et recevoir des données de demandeur de la part d'un dispositif informatique mobile du demandeur. Le système peut déterminer lorsque le véhicule autonome et le demandeur se trouvent à l'emplacement de prise en charge ou au sein d'une distance seuil de celui-ci. Ensuite, le système peut ordonner au véhicule autonome d'exécuter une ou plusieurs opérations de non conduite pour faciliter l'utilisation du véhicule autonome par le demandeur.
