Title (EN) ACCESS AND CONTROL FOR DRIVING OF AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE
(FR) ACCÈS ET COMMANDE DE PILOTAGE DE VÉHICULE AUTONOME
Abstract:
(EN) A method and apparatus for controlling use of an autonomous vehicle includes an interior occupant sensing system to obtain data of occupants from a video camera. An occupant sensing controller is configured to receive the video and detect a number of faces of occupants disposed in the vehicle. Further, the occupant sensing controller determines demographic information from the video data of each of the detected faces and then stores the vehicle location, the number of faces, and the demographic information for occupants as data in the vehicle. The occupant sensing controller determines from the demographic information an age of occupants in the autonomous vehicle, and when the demographic information indicates that all occupants in the autonomous vehicle are less than a certain age, limits travel to a destination or operation of the autonomous vehicle in response to age. Further, the occupant sensing controller can recognize a specific authorized individual within the vehicle and limit usage of the vehicle for the identified authorized individual.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé et un appareil permettant de commander l'utilisation d'un véhicule autonome comprenant un système de détection d'occupant dans l'habitacle pour obtenir d'une caméra vidéo des données concernant des occupants. Un contrôleur de détection d'occupant est conçu pour recevoir la vidéo et détecter un certain nombre de visages d'occupants se trouvant dans le véhicule. En outre, le contrôleur de détection d'occupant détermine des informations démographiques à partir des données vidéo de chacun des visages détectés et enregistre ensuite l'emplacement du véhicule, le nombre de visages, et les informations démographiques concernant les occupants en tant que données du véhicule. Le contrôleur de détection d'occupant détermine, à partir des informations démographiques, l'âge des occupants dans le véhicule autonome, et lorsque les informations démographiques indiquent que tous les occupants du véhicule autonome ont moins d'un certain âge, limite le déplacement vers une destination ou un fonctionnement du véhicule autonome en réponse à l'âge. En outre, le contrôleur de détection d'occupant peut reconnaître un individu autorisé spécifique à l'intérieur du véhicule et limiter l'utilisation du véhicule pour l'individu autorisé identifié.
