Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DETERMINING VEHICLE POSITION BASED UPON LIGHT-BASED COMMUNICATION AND TIME-OF-FLIGHT MEASUREMENTS
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ PERMETTANT DE DÉTERMINER UNE POSITION DE VÉHICULE SUR LA BASE D'UNE COMMUNICATION BASÉE SUR LA LUMIÈRE ET DE MESURES DE TEMPS DE VOL
Abstract:
(EN) A system and method for determining vehicle position uses light based communication signals and a time-of-flight (TOF) pulse. Each vehicle includes a LBC system having light emitting diodes and receiver photodiodes capable of sending and receiving pulsed light binary messages. The LBC system may also include a TOF transceiver for sending and receiving TOF pulses, or the transmitter and receiver diodes may be used to send and receive TOF pulses. Each LBC system has a controller coupled to the transmitter diodes and receiver diodes (and the TOF transceiver when present). The controller includes a processor configured to determine the distance between vehicles. Optical characteristics are used to discern relative angle, a header is used to determine relative orientation, and the time-of-flight is used to determine distance, which together may be used by the processor to determine the relative location between transmitting vehicle and the receiving vehicle.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un système et un procédé permettant de déterminer une position de véhicule qui utilisent des signaux de communication basés sur la lumière et une impulsion de temps de vol (TOF pour Time-Of-Flight). Chaque véhicule comprend un système LBC ayant des diodes électroluminescentes et des photodiodes réceptrices capables d'envoyer et de recevoir des messages binaires de lumière pulsée. Le système LBC peut également comprendre un émetteur-récepteur TOF pour envoyer et recevoir des impulsions TOF, ou les diodes d'émetteur et de récepteur peuvent être utilisées pour envoyer et recevoir des impulsions TOF. Chaque système LBC comprend un dispositif de commande couplé aux diodes d'émetteur et aux diodes de récepteur (et à l'émetteur-récepteur TOF lorsqu'il est présent). Le dispositif de commande comprend un processeur configuré de sorte à déterminer la distance entre véhicules. Des caractéristiques optiques sont utilisées pour discerner un angle relatif, un en-tête est utilisé pour déterminer une orientation relative et le temps de vol est utilisé pour déterminer une distance, qui peuvent être utilisés conjointement par le processeur pour déterminer l'emplacement relatif entre le véhicule de transmission et le véhicule de réception.
