Title
(EN) Navigating in snow
Abstract
(EN)

Systems and methods navigate a vehicle on a road with snow covering at least some lane markings and road edges. In one implementation, a system may include at least one processor programmed to receive from an image capture device, at least one environmental image forward of the vehicle, including areas where snow covers at least some lane markings and road edges, identify, based on an analysis of the at least one image, at least a portion of the road that is covered with snow and probable locations for road edges bounding the at least a portion of the road that is covered with snow, and cause the vehicle to navigate a navigational path that includes the identified portion of the road and falls within the determined probable locations for the road edges.
