Title
(EN) OBSTACLE AVOIDANCE IN AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES
(FR) ÉVITEMENT D'OBSTACLE DANS DES VÉHICULES AUTONOMES
Abstract
(EN)
The presently disclosed subject matter includes a computerized method and a control system mountable on a vehicle for autonomously controlling the vehicle and enabling to execute a point-turn while avoiding collision with nearby obstacles. More specifically, the proposed technique enables an autonomous vehicle, characterized by an asymmetric contour, to execute a collision free point-turn, in an area crowded with obstacles. The disclosed method enables execution of a point turn quickly, without requiring the vehicle to stop.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un procédé informatisé et un système de commande pouvant être monté sur un véhicule permettant de commander de manière autonome le véhicule et d'exécuter un demi-tour tout en évitant une collision avec des obstacles à proximité. Plus particulièrement, la technique proposée permet à un véhicule autonome, caractérisé par un contour asymétrique, d'exécuter un demi-tour sans collision, dans une zone remplie d'obstacles. Le procédé selon l'invention permet une exécution rapide d'un demi-tour, sans nécessiter l'arrêt du véhicule.
