Title
(EN) PLANNING ACCOMMODATIONS FOR PARTICULATE MATTER
(FR) PLANIFICATION D'AMÉNAGEMENTS POUR DE LA MATIÈRE PARTICULAIRE
Abstract
(EN) Techniques for detecting an object in an environment, determining a probability that the object is a region of particulate matter, and controlling a vehicle based on the probability. The region particulate matter may include steam (e.g., emitted from a man-hole cover, a dryer exhaust port, etc.), exhaust from a vehicle (e.g., car, truck, motorcycle, etc.), dust, environmental gases (e.g., resulting from sublimation, fog, evaporation, etc.), or the like. Based on the associated probability that the object is a region of particulate matter, a vehicle computing system may substantially maintain a vehicle trajectory, modify a trajectory of the vehicle to ensure the vehicle does not impact the object, stop the vehicle, or otherwise control the vehicle to ensure that the vehicle continues to progress in a safe manner. The vehicle controller may continually adjust the trajectory based on additionally acquired sensor data and associated region probabilities.
(FR) L'invention concerne des techniques de détection d'un objet dans un environnement, de détermination d'une probabilité que l'objet soit une région de matière particulaire, et de commande d'un véhicule sur la base de la probabilité. La matière particulaire de région peut comprendre de la vapeur (par exemple, émise à partir d'un couvercle de trou d'homme, d'un orifice d'échappement de séchoir, etc.), des gaz d'échappement d'un véhicule (par exemple, voiture, camion, moto, etc.), de la poussière, des gaz environnementaux (par exemple, résultant de la sublimation, du brouillard, de l'évaporation, etc.), ou analogues. Sur la base de la probabilité associée selon laquelle l'objet est une région de matière particulaire, un système informatique de véhicule peut sensiblement maintenir une trajectoire de véhicule, modifier une trajectoire du véhicule pour s'assurer que le véhicule n'entre pas en collision avec l'objet, arrêter le véhicule, ou sinon commander le véhicule pour s'assurer que le véhicule continue à progresser de manière sûre. Le dispositif de commande de véhicule peut ajuster en continu la trajectoire sur la base de données de capteur acquises de façon supplémentaire et de probabilités de région associées.
