The patent application (Publication Number: US20240036212A1) describes a vehicle equipped with a sub-short range active light sensor that detects lane boundaries on the surface the vehicle is traveling on. This sensor is integrated with an advanced driver-assistance system (ADAS) that responds to the detection of lane boundaries by performing specific actions. The sensor can be mounted underneath the vehicle, at the end, or on the side, and is capable of detecting lane markings, road markers, or elevation differences as lane boundaries.

Furthermore, the vehicle includes a sensor fusion component that combines outputs from the sub-short range active light sensor with outputs from other sensors like audio or vibration sensors. The ADAS can control the vehicle's motion or generate alerts based on the lane boundary detection. The sensor can perform scanning in one or two dimensions and may include features like flash light ranging and detection or triangulation light ranging and detection. Additionally, the vehicle may have multiple sensors positioned in different locations, with synchronized operation for accurate detection. The patent also covers a method involving detecting lane boundaries using the sensor and triggering actions through the ADAS in response to the detection.
