Title (EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR AUTOMATED VEHICLE BREAKDOWN RECOVERY
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE DÉPANNAGE DE VÉHICULE AUTOMATISÉ
Abstract:
(EN) Input signals and a failure indication are received from an automated ground vehicle (AGV) or aerial drone. A type of failure at the AGV or aerial drone is determined based upon analyzing the failure indication and the input signals. When the type of failure is a power failure, a first control signal is transmitted that connects a back-up power source to an electrical power network of the AGV or aerial drone. Upon reception of the failure indication, a second control signal is transmitted to the AGV or aerial drone that instigates a security protection measure at the AGV or aerial drone. A third control signal that is effective to actuate a recovery assistance apparatus is transmitted. The recovery assistance apparatus, upon being actuated, replaces or repairs the failed or suspect component.
(FR) Selon l'invention, des signaux d'entrée et une indication de défaillance sont reçus en provenance d'un véhicule terrestre automatisé (AGV) ou d'un drone aérien. Un type de défaillance au niveau de l'AGV ou du drone aérien est déterminé sur la base de l'analyse de l'indication de défaillance et des signaux d'entrée. Lorsque le type de défaillance est une panne d'alimentation, un premier signal de commande est transmis qui connecte une source d'alimentation de secours à un réseau d'alimentation électrique de l'AGV ou du drone aérien. Lors de la réception de l'indication de défaillance, un deuxième signal de commande est transmis à l'AGV ou au drone aérien qui initie une mesure de protection de sécurité au niveau de l'AGV ou du drone aérien. Un troisième signal de commande qui permet d'actionner un appareil d'aide au dépannage est transmis. L'appareil d'aide au dépannage, lorsqu'il est actionné, remplace ou répare le composant défaillant ou suspect.
