Many behavior models ignore vehicle type. This leads to problems whereby trajectories that aren't dynamically achievable by certain vehicle types are predicted in planning modules leading to poor planning and ultimately poor control.

Watch UBC student researcher Larry Liu describe his Inverted AI-sponsored research and IROS 2022 paper on vehicle-type-specific waypoint generation, work that combines RL and inference in a novel way to address exactly this kind of problem.
