Title
(EN) AUTONOMOUS TRAILER HITCHING USING NEURAL NETWORK
(FR) ATTELAGE AUTONOME DE REMORQUE À L'AIDE D'UN RÉSEAU NEURONAL
Abstract
(EN)
A method of maneuvering a vehicle in reverse for attachment to a trailer is disclosed. The method includes receiving one or more images from one or more cameras positioned on a back portion of the vehicle and identifying one or more trailers within the one or more images. The method also includes receiving an indication of a selected trailer from the one or more trailers. Additionally, the method includes determining a vehicle path from an initial position to a final position. The vehicle path includes maneuvers configured to direct the vehicle in a rearward direction along the vehicle path from the initial position to the final position. The method also includes executing one or more behaviors causing the vehicle to take an action to autonomously follow the vehicle path and execute the maneuvers.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé de manœuvre d'un véhicule en marche arrière en vue d'un accrochage à une remorque. Le procédé comprend la réception d'une ou plusieurs images en provenance d'une ou plusieurs caméras positionnées sur une partie arrière du véhicule et l'identification d'une ou plusieurs remorques au sein de l'image ou des images. Le procédé comprend également la réception d'une indication d'une remorque sélectionnée parmi la ou les remorques. De plus, le procédé comprend la détermination d'une trajectoire de véhicule d'une position initiale à une position finale. La trajectoire de véhicule comprend des manœuvres configurées pour diriger le véhicule dans une direction de recul suivant la trajectoire de véhicule de la position initiale à la position finale. Le procédé comprend également l'exécution d'un ou plusieurs comportements amenant le véhicule à réaliser une action pour suivre de manière autonome la trajectoire de véhicule et exécuter les manœuvres.
