Title
(EN) MOBILE ROBOT HAVING COLLISION AVOIDANCE SYSTEM FOR CROSSING A ROAD FROM A PEDESTRIAN PATHWAY
(FR) ROBOT MOBILE AYANT UN SYSTÈME D'ÉVITEMENT DE COLLISION POUR TRAVERSER UNE ROUTE À PARTIR D'UNE VOIE PIÉTONNE
Abstract
(EN)
A collision avoidance method and system for a mobile robot crossing a road. When a mobile robot approaches a road, it senses road conditions via at least one first sensor, and initiates road crossing if the road conditions are deemed suitable for crossing. As it crosses the road, the mobile robot senses, via at least one second sensor, a change in the road conditions indicating the presence of at least one hazardous moving object. In response to determining that at least one hazardous object in present, the mobile robot initiates a collision avoidance maneuver. A mobile robot configured to avoid collisions while crossing a road includes: at least one first sensor configured to sense road conditions, at least one second sensor configured to sense road conditions, and a processing component configured to carry out one or more collision avoidance maneuvers.

L'invention concerne un procédé et un système d'évitement de collision pour un robot mobile traversant une route. Lorsqu'un robot mobile approche d'une route, il détecte des conditions de route par l'intermédiaire d'au moins un premier capteur, et déclenche un passage de route si les conditions de route sont considérées comme appropriées pour une traversée. Lorsqu'il traverse la route, le robot mobile détecte, par l'intermédiaire d'au moins un second capteur, un changement dans les conditions de route indiquant la présence d'au moins un objet mobile dangereux. S'il est déterminé qu'au moins un objet dangereux est présent, le robot mobile déclenche une manœuvre d'évitement de collision. Un robot mobile configuré pour éviter des collisions tout en traversant une route comprend : au moins un premier capteur configuré pour détecter des conditions de route, au moins un second capteur configuré pour détecter des conditions de route, et un composant de traitement configuré pour effectuer une ou plusieurs manœuvres d'évitement de collision.
