Title (EN) METHOD AND DEVICE FOR ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL, COMPUTER PROGRAMME, COMPUTER PROGRAMME PRODUCT, COMPUTER AND VEHICLE
(FR) DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ POUR UN RÉGULATEUR DE VITESSE ADAPTATIF, PROGRAMME INFORMATIQUE, PRODUIT DE PROGRAMME INFORMATIQUE, ORDINATEUR ET VÉHICULE
Abstract:
(EN) A method for adaptive vehicle cruise control incorporating a Stop-&-Go function, whereby the vehicle is caused to match the speed of a target (9, 10), e.g. a vehicle ahead, and accordingly to stop and, after the standstill, to resume matching the speed of the target, and whereby a target region ahead of the vehicle is monitored for targets by at least two sensors (2, 3, 4). The method is distinguished particularly by the steps of - monitoring the target region by at least two short-distance sensors (2, 3, 4) which each deliver target measurement data in the form of distance, direction and relative speed; - by sensor fusion, carrying out target association using the uncertainty in the sensors' target measurement data indications, and thereby determining whether a target (9, 10) monitored by one sensor (2, 4) lies within an error window (8) based on said uncertainty of a target (9, 10) from the other sensor (2, 4), and - if such is the case, classifying the target as a relevant monitored target. The invention relates also to a device, a computer programme, a computer programme product, a computer and a vehicle.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un procédé pour un régulateur de vitesse de véhicule adaptatif, incorporant une fonction arrêt et démarrage, grâce à quoi le véhicule est amené à s'adapter à la vitesse d'une cible (9, 10), par exemple un véhicule devant, et par conséquent à s'arrêter et, après la période d'arrêt, à reprendre l'adaptation à la vitesse de la cible, et grâce à quoi une région cible devant le véhicule est surveillée pour des cibles par au moins deux détecteurs (2, 3, 4). Le procédé se distingue particulièrement par les étapes consistant à : surveiller la région cible par au moins deux détecteurs courte distance (2, 3, 4), qui distribuent chacun des données de mesure cibles sous la forme d'une distance, d'une direction et d'une vitesse relative; par une fusion de détecteurs, réaliser une association de cibles à l'aide de l'incertitude sur les indications de données de mesure cibles des détecteurs, et ainsi déterminer si ou non une cible (9, 10) surveillée par un détecteur (2, 4) se trouve dans une fenêtre d'erreur (8), sur la base de ladite incertitude d'une cible (9, 10) à partir de l'autre détecteur (2, 4), et, si tel est le cas, classer la cible en tant que cible surveillée pertinente. L'invention porte également sur un dispositif, un programme informatique, un produit de programme informatique, un ordinateur et un véhicule.
