Title
(EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE NAVIGATION
Abstract
(EN)

Disclosed is a system for automatically navigating a vehicle, which system comprises:

  • a data storage containing one or more maps of one or more areas;
  • electronic interfaces for: (i) receiving data relating to the one or more areas from external data sources; (ii) receiving parameters relating to motion of the vehicle from physical sensors; and (iii) receiving a location of the vehicle from a positioning device;
  • a navigation processor comprising processing circuitry adapted to determine an initial optimal route for traversing the vehicle from a given point in the one or more areas to another point in the one or more areas by computationally resolving a constrained minimization problem.
