Title (EN) GUIDEWAY MOUNTED VEHICLE LOCALIZATION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE LOCALISATION DE VÉHICULE MONTÉ SUR VOIE DE GUIDAGE
Abstract:
(EN) A system comprises a set of sensors on a first end of a vehicle having the first end and a second end, and a controller. The sensors are configured to generate corresponding sensor data based on a detected object along a direction of movement of the vehicle. The controller is configured to compare a time at which the first sensor detected the object with a time at which the second sensor detected the object to identify the first end or the second end as a leading end of the vehicle, and to calculate a position of the leading end of the vehicle based on the sensor data generated by one or more of the first sensor or the second sensor. The controller is also configured to generate a map of the plurality of objects based on the sensor data.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système qui comprend un ensemble de capteurs sur une première extrémité d'un véhicule ayant la première extrémité et une seconde extrémité, et un dispositif de commande. Les capteurs sont conçus pour générer des données de capteur correspondantes sur la base d'un objet détecté le long d'une direction de déplacement du véhicule. Le dispositif de commande est conçu pour comparer un temps où le premier capteur a détecté l'objet à un temps où le second capteur a détecté l'objet pour identifier la première extrémité ou la seconde extrémité comme extrémité avant du véhicule, et pour calculer une position de l'extrémité avant du véhicule sur la base des données de capteur générées par le premier capteur et/ou le second capteur. Le dispositif de commande est également conçu pour générer une carte de la pluralité d'objets sur la base des données de capteur.
