Title
(EN) SITUATIONAL AWARENESS SIGN SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE SIGNALISATION À PERCEPTION SITUATIONNELLE
Abstract
(EN) The disclosure is directed to a pathway article, such as an enhanced sign, that provides information about characteristics of the vehicle pathway to a computing device onboard a vehicle. An enhanced sign may include additional information that may be interpreted by an autonomous vehicle or a human operator. The additional information that may be processed by the onboard computing systems of the vehicle, along with information from the other sensors on the vehicle GPS information and other information about the pathway. The computing system may adjust one or more functions of the vehicle in response to vehicle pathway characteristics. The pathway articles of this disclosure may also have advantages in applications such as for vehicles operating in warehouses, factories, airports, airways, waterways, underground or pit mines and similar locations.
(FR) L'invention concerne un article de voie, tel qu'un panneau amélioré, qui fournit des informations concernant les caractéristiques de la voie du véhicule à un dispositif informatique à bord d'un véhicule. Un panneau amélioré peut comprendre des informations supplémentaires qui peuvent être interprétées par un véhicule autonome ou par un opérateur humain. Les informations supplémentaires qui peuvent être traitées par les systèmes informatiques embarqués du véhicule, conjointement avec des informations provenant des autres capteurs sur les informations GPS du véhicule et d'autres informations concernant la voie. Le système informatique peut ajuster une ou plusieurs fonctions du véhicule en réponse à des caractéristiques de voie de véhicule. Les articles de la voie de la présente invention peuvent également présenter des avantages dans des applications telles que pour des véhicules évoluant dans des entrepôts, des usines, des aéroports, des voies aériennes, des voies navigables, des mines souterraines ou des mines et des lieux similaires.
