COGNITIVE BEHAVIOR PREDICTION SYSTEM FOR AUTONOMOUS SYSTEMS

Described is a system for predicting the behavior of an autonomous system. The system identifies a taxonomic state of a motion condition of an autonomous vehicle based on a spatiotemporal location of the autonomous vehicle and elements of a driving scenario. Behavior of the autonomous vehicle is predicted based on the taxonomic state of the… Read More »

REAL-TIME UPDATES TO MAPS FOR AUTONOMOUS NAVIGATION

<p id=”p-0001″ num=”0000″>Presented herein are techniques for updating detailed maps used to navigate an autonomous vehicle. The techniques include determining that a vehicle has come within a predetermined range of a road side unit, establishing a communication link with the vehicle, receiving, from the vehicle, data sufficient to identify a vehicle type of the vehicle,… Read More »

Vehicle Route Control

<p id=”p-0001″ num=”0000″>An apparatus includes a processor configured to send detour instructions defining a travel path that avoids a location of the traffic event. The detour instructions may be sent responsive to receiving notification of a traffic event. The processor is further configured to update the detour instructions to alter the travel path based on… Read More »
