Title: APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR DETERMINING A SPEED OF A VEHICLE
Abstract:
An apparatus (100) for determining a speed of a vehicle (10) is disclosed. The vehicle (10) comprises one or more sensors (50) configured to determine a distance (d) to or a relative speed of an object (60) in an environment of the vehicle (10). The apparatus includes a data interface (110) and a processing module (120). The data interface (110) is configured to receive sensor data (115) from the one or more sensors (50), where the sensor data (115) indicates the distance (d) to and/or the relative speed of the object (60). The processing module (120) is configured to determine (i) a motion state of the object (60) based on the received sensor data (115), and (ii) the speed of the vehicle (10) based on the determined motion state and the received sensor data (115).
