Application: Delivery hand off procedure when electric vehicle (EV) is about to lose power (Patent ID: US20230415785A1)

The patent filed by State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Co. describes methods and systems for power transfer and routing in a compartmentalized electric vehicle (EV) with detachable compartments. Each compartment has its own power supply, motor, wheels, and autonomous operation features, allowing them to combine and form a compartmentalized EV that travels to a specific location. The patent also details a computer-implemented method for handing off a load from one EV to another when the delivering EV is running out of power. This method involves receiving indications from the second EV about its remaining charge and destination, determining a meeting location for the load handoff, and causing the first EV to travel to that location before delivering the load to the final destination.

The patent's claims outline various aspects of the computer-implemented method, including transmitting response messages, receiving vehicle-to-vehicle communications, determining meeting locations based on routes and waypoints, and sending control signals for the EVs to travel to specific locations. Additionally, the claims detail the configuration of a computer system designed to facilitate load handoffs between EVs, with processors, transceivers, and sensors working together to ensure a smooth transfer process. Overall, the patent focuses on innovative techniques for efficient power transfer and routing in compartmentalized EVs, as well as the seamless handoff of loads between EVs to optimize delivery processes.
