Title
(EN) DECREASING VEHICLE POWER CONSUMPTION
(FR) RÉDUCTION DE LA CONSOMMATION D'ÉNERGIE D'UN VÉHICULE
Abstract
(EN)
Systems and methods for decreasing vehicle power consumption are provided. In one example embodiment, a method includes sending one or more first control signals to one or more control systems of an autonomous vehicle, the autonomous vehicle operating in a first mode and configured to provide a service to one or more users of the service. The one or more control signals cause the one or more control systems to autonomously park the vehicle at the location. The method includes sending, after the autonomous vehicle has autonomously parked at the location, one or more second control signals to the one or more control systems of the autonomous vehicle causing the autonomous vehicle to operate in a second mode, wherein the second mode requires less power than the first mode.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés de réduction de la consommation d'énergie d'un véhicule. Dans un mode de réalisation donné à titre d'exemple, un procédé consiste à envoyer un ou plusieurs premiers signaux de commande à un ou à plusieurs systèmes de commande d'un véhicule autonome, le véhicule autonome fonctionnant dans un premier mode et étant configuré de sorte à fournir un service à un ou à plusieurs utilisateurs du service. Lesdits signaux de commande amènent lesdits systèmes de commande à garer de manière autonome le véhicule à un emplacement. Le procédé consiste à envoyer, après que le véhicule autonome s'est garé de manière autonome à l'emplacement, un ou plusieurs seconds signaux de commande auxdits systèmes de commande du véhicule autonome, amenant le véhicule autonome à fonctionner dans un second mode, le second mode nécessitant moins d'énergie que le premier mode.
