Title
(EN) VEHICLE TECHNOLOGIES FOR AUTOMATED TURN SIGNALING
(FR) TECHNOLOGIES DE VÉHICULE POUR ACTIVATION AUTOMATISÉE DE CLIGNOTANT
Abstract
(EN)
This disclosure discloses various vehicle technologies for automatically activating a turn signal when a vehicle is turning or changing lanes based on analysis of data, which can include data from an image capture device, radar, a steering angle sensor, and an ultrasonic sensor. This disclosure also contemplates that a decision to automatically activate a turn signal in a vehicle that is turning or changing lanes may take into account whether other vehicles or pedestrians are in vicinity thereof and whether those other vehicles or pedestrians would benefit from the turn signal being activated.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne diverses technologies de véhicule pour activer automatiquement un clignotant lorsqu'un véhicule tourne ou change de voie sur la base d'une analyse de données, qui peuvent comprendre des données provenant d'un dispositif de capture d'image, d'un radar, d'un capteur d'angle de direction et d'un capteur ultrasonore. La présente invention concerne également le fait qu'une décision d'activation automatique d'un clignotant dans un véhicule qui est tourne ou change de voie peut prendre en compte si d'autres véhicules ou piétons sont à proximité de celui-ci et si l'activation du clignotant serait utile à ces autres véhicules ou piétons.
