Title
(EN) NAVIGATION BASED ON FREE SPACE DETERMINATION
Abstract
(EN)

Systems and methods navigate a vehicle by determining a free space region in which the vehicle can travel. In one implementation, a system may include at least one processor programmed to receive from an image capture device, a plurality of images associated with the environment of a vehicle, analyze at least one of the plurality of images to identify a first free space boundary on a driver side of the vehicle and extending forward of the vehicle, a second free space boundary on a passenger side of the vehicle and extending forward of the vehicle, and a forward free space boundary forward of the vehicle and extending between the first free space boundary and the second free space boundary. The first free space boundary, the second free space boundary, and the forward free space boundary may define a free space region forward of the vehicle. The at least one processor of the system may be further programmed to determine a navigational path for the vehicle through the free space region and cause the vehicle to travel on at least a portion of the determined navigational path within the free space region forward of the vehicle.
