Title
(EN) REMOVABLE AUTOMOTIVE LIDAR DATA COLLECTION POD
(FR) NACELLE AMOVIBLE DE COLLECTE DE DONNÉES LIDAR D'AUTOMOBILE
Abstract
(EN)
A vehicle agnostic removable pod can be mounted on a vehicle using one or more legs of a pod mount. The removable pod can collect and time stamp a variety of environmental data as well as vehicle data. For example, environmental data can be collected using a sensor suite which can include an IMU, 3D positioning sensor, one or more cameras, and/or a LIDAR unit. As another example, vehicle data can be collected via a CAN bus attached to the vehicle. Environmental data and/or vehicle data can be time stamped and transmitted to a remote server for further processing by a computing device.

L'invention concerne une nacelle amovible destinée à un véhicule pouvant être montée sur un véhicule à l'aide d'une ou plusieurs jambes d'un support de nacelle. La nacelle amovible peut collecter et horodater une variété de données environnementales ainsi que des données de véhicule. Par exemple, des données environnementales peuvent être collectées à l'aide d'une suite de capteurs pouvant comprendre une IMU, un capteur de positionnement 3D, une ou plusieurs caméras et/ou une unité LIDAR. Selon un autre exemple, des données de véhicule peuvent être collectées par l'intermédiaire d'un bus CAN fixé au véhicule. Des données environnementales et/ou des données de véhicule peuvent être horodatées et transmises à un serveur distant pour un traitement ultérieur par un dispositif informatique.
