Title
(EN) Encoded road striping for autonomous vehicles
Abstract
(EN)

An autonomous vehicle (AV) can process a live sensor view to autonomously operate acceleration, braking, and steering systems of the AV along a given route. While traveling along the given route, the AV can identify an encoded road stripe in the live sensor view, and decode the encoded road stripe to determine location data corresponding to the encoded road stripe.
