Title (EN) AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE LOCALIZATION
(FR) LOCALISATION DE VÉHICULE AUTONOME
Abstract:
(EN) In an embodiment, a localization module can provide coordinates of the vehicle relative to the Earth and relative to the drivable surface, both of which are precise enough to allow for self-driving, and further can compensate for a temporary lapse in reliable GPS service by continuing to track the car's position by tracking its movement with inertial sensors (e.g., accelerometers and gyroscopes) and RADAR data. The localization module bases its output on a geolocation relative to the Earth and sensor measurements of the drivable surface and its surroundings to determine where the car is in relation to the Earth and the drivable surface.
(FR) Dans un mode de réalisation, l'invention concerne un module de localisation pouvant fournir des coordonnées du véhicule par rapport à la terre et par rapport à la surface de conduite, ces deux types de coordonnées étant suffisamment précises pour permettre une conduite automatique et pouvant en outre compenser une absence temporaire dans un service GPS fiable en continuant à suivre la position de la voiture par suivi de son mouvement avec des capteurs inertiels (par exemple des accéléromètres et des gyroscopes) et des données RADAR. Le module de localisation base sa sortie sur une géolocalisation par rapport à la terre et sur des mesures de capteur de la surface de conduite et de son environnement pour déterminer où la voiture se trouve par rapport à la terre et à la surface de conduite.
