Title (EN) AN AUTONOMOUS YARD VEHICLE SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE VÉHICULE AUTONOME DE JARDIN
Abstract:
(EN) Autonomous yard vehicle management systems and methods are described. An autonomous yard vehicle system comprises a chassis, at least one freely rotating wheel disposed proximate to a distal end of the chassis, a first drive wheel driven by a first motor, a second drive wheel driven by a second motor, a coupling configured to mechanically couple with a cargo trailer, a plurality of sensors disposed about the chassis, and a computing system programmed to navigate to the cargo trailer and guide the coupling between the autonomous yard vehicle and the cargo trailer.
(FR) La présente invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés de gestion d'un véhicule autonome de jardin. Le système de véhicule autonome de jardin comprend un châssis, au moins une roue tournant librement placée à proximité d'une extrémité distale du châssis, une première roue motrice entraînée par un premier moteur, une seconde roue motrice entraînée par un second moteur, un accouplement conçu pour être couplé mécaniquement à une remorque de chargement, une pluralité de capteurs installés autour du châssis et un système informatique, programmé pour naviguer vers la remorque de chargement et guider l'accouplement entre le véhicule autonome de jardin et la remorque de chargement.
