Huawei Obtains New Patent for Smart Cars

On August 2, a patent applied for by Huawei entitled “Identification Method and Identification Device for Objects of Interest to Users” was formally authorized.

The patent overview shows that it relates to the field of intelligent vehicles, and the identification method comprises the following steps: obtaining the information of a user’s sight gazing area and the corresponding environment image, and obtaining the first gazing area information of the user according to the environment image. Then, the target gaze area of the user is obtained according to the information of the gazing area.

The first gazing area is used to represent a sensitive area determined by the physical characteristics of the human body, and the target gaze area is used to represent an area where the target object gazed by the user is located in the environmental image. Based on this recognition method, the accuracy of identifying objects of interest to users can be improved.

Previously, Huawei released a patent aimed at improving the accuracy of vehicle collision probability detection, which can be used in the fields of automated driving, intelligent driving or unmanned driving.

Huawei is committed to becoming an incremental component supplier for intelligent and connected vehicles.”
