Background for Autonomous neighborhood vehicle commerce network, community
Individuals might want to buy a wide range of products. These individuals might not have the means or time to purchase these items. Individuals might not be able to drive or live in areas where public transport is unreliable, costly, and/or unsafe. People who have access to transportation might not want to spend hours travelling to and fro and/or obtaining items. These errands might not be possible for some people due to work commitments or other obligations. Individuals may also not want to order online because they don’t have the time or patience to wait for shipping. This can lead to wasted time and/or errors that are not completed on time.
Home delivery services can be costly, need tips, and/or operate during inconvenient hours and/or unpredictable arrival times. Individuals may doubt the ability of courier services to deliver their items, or may feel that they are not safe in transit. Individuals might not be able to easily acquire or deliver items without spending significant time, money, and/or effort. This can lead to time and money being wasted, and/or lost opportunities for commerce.
Disclosed is a method, device, and/or system for autonomous neighborhood car commerce through a commerceserver of a neighborhood communications network,” according to one embodiment.
An autonomous neighborhood vehicle is a vehicle that can be used to navigate a sidewalk, bike lane or roadway. An autonomous vehicle for the neighborhood includes a storage area in which items can be stored, an electronic locking mechanism, a computer system that communicates with a commerce server through a wireless network to enable the autonomous vehicle to navigate to a destination defined by the commerce server and a navigation server that provides remote sensing capabilities to the autonomous vehicle so that it is autonomously navigable to that destination.
In one embodiment, the autonomous neighbor vehicle may use a sensor-fusion algorithm in which at least part of an ultrasound unit and a radar unit, as well as a LIDAR device, a LIDAR sensor, a wheel encoder sensor, an accelerometer sensor and a gyroscopic sensors, a compass sens, and/or stereo optical sensor work together to create a three-dimensional environment view of the surrounding autonomous neighborhood vehicles. An autonomous neighborhood vehicle might include a sidewalk detector sensor. This sensor will allow the vehicle to detect a sidewalk’s start and/or end locations. The base of an autonomous neighborhood vehicle may have a telescoping platform that can be attached to the front wheels. This will cause the front wheels to rise or fall according to the sidewalk location.
The autonomous neighbor vehicle may transmit a heartbeat message periodically to the commerce server with a set geo-spatial coordinates, a time stamp and/or a date stamp. One embodiment of this invention allows the autonomous neighbor vehicle to automatically send an emergency broadcast message out to neighbors located within a geo-spatial area of the autonomous vehicle in the event of a failure condition. This could include an impact, a mechanical or electrical failure, and/or damage conditions. An emergency broadcast message can include photo data, geo-spatial coordinates, video data, audio data, timeout conditions of heartbeat message receipt at commerce server, and/or textual data. According to one embodiment, the autonomous neighborhood vehicle can automatically park itself in a garage structure that is associated with the operator. The operator may be at least one individual, a family or a business.
The storage compartment can be temperature controlled to maintain the temperature of an item in transit from a starting address associated in merchant and/or neighbor in a neighbourhood in a geospatial proximity of the autonomous nearby vehicle and/or a destination adress associated with the recipient of the item within the neighborhood in the geospatial surrounding of the autonomous neighbor vehicle. In this case, the neighborhood boundary is determined through a neighborhood boundary provider. One embodiment of the autonomous neighborhood vehicle is a bicycle that can be used to navigate through bike lanes next to roads.
Another aspect of an autonomous vehicle is a method that associates the autonomous vehicle with a nontransient location. The commerce server of a nearby communication system determines that the destination is within a threshold radius from the nontransient location. This information is then received by the autonomous vehicle via a wireless network. This method includes the determination of an optimal route between the current location and the destination, and autonomously traveling on that optimal route to the destination.
One embodiment of the method involves periodically determining the location of an autonomous neighborhood car using a processor and communicating that location to the commerce server. When a light sensor detects a lower ambient brightness, the light emitting diodes are activated automatically around the vehicle. The method may also include creating an envelope surrounding the autonomous neighborhood vehicle that includes a set number of minimum ranges. A minimum distance must be maintained in front, behind, to the left, to the right, above and/or below autonomous neighborhood vehicle.
The method could include setting a speed range for the autonomous vehicle and establishing a minimum or maximum distance the vehicle can travel. This distance is either per trip, per day, and/or per delivery. One embodiment of the method may include setting a maximum magnitude for deceleration. This is in feet per squared.
The method could include determining at a predetermined time if there is a better route than the optimal one based on delivery time, pendency, and/or travel distance. A predetermined interval may be used to determine if a different route than the optimal one exists. This could include continuously determining every hour, every 100 yards, the time that the autonomous neighbor vehicle meets traffic, and the moment the object is encountered. This method can include the calculation of a new route and the travel along that route, as long as it is the most efficient. One embodiment of the method includes determining when an alternative field is necessary, prioritizing established limitations of the envelope, speed, distance traveled, maximum magnitude of deceleration, and/or minimum crosswalk proximity with respect to the need for an alternate view. The optimal alternate view must not violate established constraints that are prioritized over obtaining an alternate view.
One embodiment allows for the best alternate view possible without having to violate constraints. This can be achieved by switching sensors, moving an autonomous neighborhood vehicle, and/or moving sensors. The minimum ranges of an envelope can be determined by the speed of the autonomous neighbor vehicle, weather conditions, the environment, the item and/or the nature of the object. Temperature-controlled storage compartments can be used to maintain the temperature and humidity of an item while in transit. This may be done between a starting address associated in some way with a merchant or a neighbor in a neighbourhood in the geospatial proximity of the autonomous nearby vehicle and/or the destination location associated in some way with the recipient of the item within the neighborhood. One embodiment may define the neighborhood boundary using a neighborhood boundary data provider. The storage compartment may also be equipped with a suspension device that protects the item while it is in transit.
The method may also include sending an emergency broadcast message to neighbors within a geospatial area of the autonomous neighbor vehicle when it detects a failure condition. This message could include a photo, a geospatial coordinates, an audio, a timeout condition for a heartbeat message reception at the commerce server, as well as textual data. One embodiment of the method includes periodically sending a heartbeat message (with a set geo-spatial coordinates, a date stamp and/or a status update of the vehicle) to the commerce server. This method can automatically contact emergency response services when an autonomous neighborhood vehicle detects a crime or accident involving third parties, and/or attempts to tamper with the vehicle.
The contact may include a time stamp and geo-spatial coordinates, photo, video, audio, and/or textual data. Emergency response services can include a fire station, police station, or medical responder. One embodiment of the method includes calculating the predicted behaviors of objects located within a certain distance of an autonomous neighborhood vehicle. The confidence levels for these predicted behaviors are either a percentage or a number. One embodiment of the method allows for adjustment of confidence levels to predict behaviors in response to changes in location, speed, direction, angle, and/or observed behavior. This method could include removing an item from the storage container and ejecting it from an ejection unit. The item is aligned using a camera located adjacent to the ejection device.
One embodiment of the method includes detecting a stop sign, stopping the autonomous neighbor vehicle at the point where it is detected, detecting yield signs and/or monitoring traffic flow at intersections in the neighborhood. It may also include detecting pedestrians walking on paths near the autonomous neighborhood vehicles and/or bicyclists biking on those same paths. Accepting a credit payment may be possible using a magnetic reader of an autonomous neighborhood vehicle, near-field credit scanners of the autonomous neighbor vehicle, or a biometric payment reader. The commerce server could be located in the privacy server of the nearby communication system, which may be wirelessly connected with the autonomous neighborhood car.
The privacy server could be a community network that verifies that each member of the network lives at a claimed residential address. This is done using a processor or a memory and a social module of a privacy service. A privacy server could be a community network that collects member data from each user using the processor of a 4204 data processing system. The member data may include an address and associate the address with a user’s profile. One embodiment of the privacy server is a community network that determines the location of each user using member data. The member data are stored in a database and each user is asked for a personal privacy preference. This preference specifies whether the address should be visible to others.
The method could include creating, through a networking, a geospatial representation, of a set on a map that defines residences for each user of the community network. Authenticating, using the verify module of privacy server, a specific user of a third party application as a verified user in the neighborhood communications system with a verified residential address. One embodiment of the method includes communicating with the privacy server using the verify module. This is based on the user’s privacy preferences. The method could include providing the verifiable residential address to third-party applications using the verify module. This is based on authentication of the particular user who is the verified user of the nearby communication system.
The privacy server may communicate with the mapping server via a network to apply an address verification algorithm associated each user of an online community to verify that each person lives at a residence associated a claimable residential adress of an online community created through a social module of the privacy servers using the processor or the memory. The mapping server can generate longitudinal and latitudinal data for each claimable residential address in the online community. A privacy server can automatically determine access privileges for each user in an online community. This is done by restricting access to the online community using a Bezier curve algorithm. The privacy server can transform the claimable address into an address when an event occurs.
The privacy server can instantiate an event when a specific user is associated to the claimable residence address. This may be based on verification that the particular user lives at a particular residential location associated with the claimable residence address using the privacy service. The privacy server might restrict the user’s ability to communicate with other users in the online community by limiting communication to a limited number of neighbors who have verified their addresses through the privacy server. The privacy server might define the neighbors as any other users of the online communiion who have verified their addresses using the privacy server, and/or claimed residential addresses within a certain radius of the user’s claimed address.
Another aspect is a neighborhood communication network that includes a commerce server and a wireless network. The wireless network allows a set autonomous neighborhood vehicles to communicate with the commerce server to travel autonomously to specified destinations. Each set of autonomous neighborhood cars periodically transmits heartbeat messages from the commerce server. These messages include a set geo-spatial coordinates, a time stamp and a date stamp as well as an operational status for each vehicle. A minimum of some autonomous neighborhood vehicles can be described as autonomous neighborhood bikes. Each bicycle has a separate storage compartment and is able to drive through the bicycle lanes next to the roadway.
In one embodiment, each autonomous neighborhood vehicle uses a sensory fusion algorithm. This means that at least some of an ultrasound, radar, light, LIDAR, LIDAR, a LIDAR, a wheel encoder, an accelerometer, a gyroscopic, compass, and/or stereo optical sensors work together to provide an autonomous neighborhood vehicle with a three-dimensional view of the environment around it. An autonomous vehicle may generate an emergency broadcast message to its neighbors in the geo-spatial area of the vehicle when it detects a failure condition. This could include an impact, a mechanical fault, an electrical failure, or a damage condition. The emergency broadcast message can contain a photo, a geospatial coordinates, audio, a timeout condition for the heartbeat message reception at the commerce server and/or textual data.
