Chinese technology giant recently disclosed a new automotive-related patent that, if applied, would make autonomous driving safer.

The abstract of the patent shows that it provides a method for identifying the steering intent of a target vehicle that can further determine the steering intent of the target vehicle based on its posture information.

The method helps to improve the accuracy of predicting the steering intention of the target vehicle and better assists autonomous driving, thereby improving the safety of self-driving vehicle driving, the patent abstract says.

Huawei has had a lot of action in the field of autonomous driving in recent years and has disclosed several related patents.

CnEVPost reported Tuesday that Huawei recently disclosed a new automotive-related patent that provides a method for controlling vehicle movement involving artificial intelligence, autonomous driving, and can be applied to smart cars.

The vehicle in self-driving mode can acquire user commands, information about the surrounding environment, then understand them and generate self-driving control commands for the vehicle based on the user's driving intentions.

This sounds a bit like the scenario in the decades-old American TV series Knight Rider, in which the smart car named KITT is able to execute the voice commands of the protagonist.

Previously, Huawei disclosed a patent it is applying for related to self-driving vehicles to identify water depth.

The method can be used for assisted driving and autonomous driving and can enhance the capabilities of a vehicle's advanced driver assistance system ADAS, which can be applied to the connected car, the patent abstract shows.

Huawei removes Su Jing as president of smart driving, earlier rumors said he would join NIO
