About this book

Steffen Heinrich describes a motion planning system for automated vehicles. The planning method is universally applicable to on-road scenarios and does not depend on a high-level maneuver selection automation for driving strategy guidance. The author presents a planning framework using graphics processing units (GPUs) for task parallelization. A method is introduced that solely uses a small set of rules and heuristics to generate driving strategies. It was possible to show that GPUs serve as an excellent enabler for real-time applications of trajectory planning methods. Like humans, computer-controlled vehicles have to be fully aware of their surroundings.  Therefore, a contribution that maximizes scene knowledge through smart vehicle positioning is evaluated. A post-processing method for stochastic trajectory validation supports the search for longer-term trajectories which take ego-motion uncertainty into account.
