TRAJECTORY SELECTION FOR AN AUTONOMOUS VEHICLE

By | September 28, 2018

A navigation system for a host vehicle may include at least one processor programmed to receive, from a camera, a plurality of images representative of an environment of the host vehicle. The processor may also be programmed to analyze at least one of the plurality of images to identify navigational state information associated with the host vehicle; determine a plurality of potential trajectories for the host vehicle based on the navigational state information; perform a preliminary analysis relative to each of the plurality of potential trajectories and assign to each of the plurality of potential trajectories, based on the preliminary analysis, at least one indicator of relative ranking; select, based on the at least one indicator of relative ranking assigned to each of the plurality of potential trajectories, a subset of the plurality of potential trajectories, wherein the subset of the plurality of potential trajectories includes fewer potential trajectories than the plurality of potential trajectories; perform a secondary analysis relative to the subset of the plurality of potential trajectories, and based on the secondary analysis, select one of the subset of the plurality of potential trajectories as a planned trajectory for the host vehicle; determine one or more navigational actions for the host vehicle based on the planned trajectory selected from among the subset of the plurality of potential trajectories; and cause at least one adjustment of a navigational actuator of the host vehicle to implement the one or more navigational actions for the host vehicle.
