Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR POSITIONING A VEHICLE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE POSITIONNEMENT D'UN VÉHICULE
Abstract:
(EN) Methods and apparatus are discloses for position a vehicle. In one aspect, an apparatus for positioning a vehicle is provided. The apparatus comprises a plurality of receive, each configured to generate a respective voltage signal from a wireless magnetic field generated by a field generator. The apparatus further comprises a processor configured to determine a first set of data based on the respective voltage signals generated by the plurality of receive coils, and reduce the first set of data to a second set of data that is substantially constant regardless of relative rotation between the plurality of receive coils and the field generator. The apparatus is further configured to determine a plurality of candidate positions based upon the second set of data, which are used to determine a position and an orientation with respect to the field generator based on the first set of data.
(FR) L'invention concerne des procédés et un appareil destinés au positionnement d'un véhicule. Selon un aspect, un appareil de positionnement d'un véhicule est fourni. L'appareil comprend une pluralité de récepteurs, chacun étant configuré pour générer un signal de tension respectif à partir d'un champ magnétique sans fil généré par un générateur de champ. L'appareil comprend en outre un processeur configuré pour déterminer un premier ensemble de données sur la base des signaux de tension respectifs générés par la pluralité de bobines de réception, et réduire le premier ensemble de données à un second ensemble de données qui est sensiblement constant indépendamment de la rotation relative entre la pluralité de bobines de réception et le générateur de champ. L'appareil est en outre configuré pour déterminer une pluralité de positions candidates sur la base du second ensemble de données, qui sont utilisées pour déterminer une position et une orientation par rapport au générateur de champ sur la base du premier ensemble de données.
