Huawei is day by day innovating new methods and technologies in the field of the smart car in order to become a champion and major smart technologies supplier to the car manufacturers industry.
On November 11, 2019, Huawei has applied a new patent for an automatic parking interactive method in the field of smart vehicles, which was passed on May 21, 2021, with publication number CN112824183A in China.
According to the patent application, the automatic parking interactive process includes a virtual top view of the parking lot on a central control screen, and the user can then use touch operations to move their vehicle to any virtual parking lot.
After receiving a parking command and the instructions are confirmed, the vehicle will perform an automatic parking operation.
Detecting that a touch operation on the parking interactive interface makes the vehicle icon parked and moving in the car interactive interface to obtain the position of the vehicle icon after moving in the parking interface.
According to the position of the vehicle icon after moving, the vehicle icon is attached to the target parking space, so that the vehicle icon and the target parking space match and generate the parking should be cold so that the automatic parking system controls the vehicle to be parked to enter the actual parking space indicated by the intended parking space at the target point.
Moreover, this automated parking function requires multiple surround-view cameras and sensors. The parking system can be divided into parking space adjustment modules, top view stitching modules, perception modules, and path planning modules.
Also, the focus of this patent is to improve the intelligent interaction experience of automatic parking systems, making it easier for users to enjoy new functions.
Huawei smart car tech can measure water accumulation to avoid incidents
On the 23rd of July 2021, Huawei released a new patent for determining the depth of inert water, which was applied by the company on the 3rd of March this year. This new patent will be proved another significant step towards the company’s strategy of making more advanced smart vehicles.
This new patent is entitled the “method and device for determining the depth of inert water” has the publication number CN113168535A. It is designed to identify the depth of the water accumulation area to avoid any possible mishappening.
Although, the automotive industry has developed many advanced technologies, which brings extra convivence for the users. But, when it comes to crossing through water accumulated areas, only the driver’s knowledge is considered to be safe.
To reduce any vulnerability in the water accumulated area, Huawei introduced this new technology. As per the patent description, this method will follow the below-mentioned procedure to gain the desired result-
- First, capture the images of the present inert water road
- Then, analyzes the image to extract valuable information
- Now, obtain the spatial location of the edge of the inert water
- Afterward, obtain the road slope angle
- Thereafter, determines the inert water and road position corresponding to the maximum water depth of the area using the recommended algorithms
Hence, the spatial location, road slope angle, and position, maximum water depth, and maximum inert water depth are determined.
The Huawei inert water patent method will specifically provide help for the autonomous driving system and contributes to more enhanced in-vehicle capabilities. Furthermore, it’ll cover the internet of vehicles that includes-
- V2X: vehicle outreach
- LTE-V: long-term evolution of vehicle communication technology
- V2V: Vehicle-Vehicle
Huawei autonomous driving control solution with identified signals
Last January, Huawei applied for a new patent for a driving controlling method in smart cars, devices, and related equipment, which was published on July 23 with announcement number CN113160590A in China.
For a long time, Huawei is securing its new ideas, methods, and technologies mainly related to smart cars in the form of patents. The Chinese tech giant’s new aim is to become a leading technology supplier in the automobile industry.
According to the patent document, this method of driving controlling method of the smart car according to the detected signal recognition to improve the safety.
Let’s take a look over the patent method for controlling driving of the smart car:
- When the controller first recognizes the signal display device and calculates the target value of the acquisition parameter of the image acquisition device in the smart car.
- The acquisition parameter of the image acquisition device is used to indicate the acquisition period and warm light to collect the image the number of times, exposure duration, and interval duration.
- After that, it sends an instruction to the image acquisition device and adjusts the acquisition parameters.
- According to the image acquisition device to obtain the image identification signal identification, and control the smart car to drive according to the identified signal identification.
In this way, the probability that the signal identification in the image collected by the image acquisition device is in the complete state is increased.
Also, the probability that the result recognized by the controller according to the image is consistent with the new result of the actual signal identification table. As a result, it improves the identification of smart car control accuracy and safety.
Huawei has a new emergency calling feature with intelligent number selection
At the beginning of 2020, Huawei has developed a method and electronic device for emergency calls and filled the patent registration to secure this innovation. This method aims to quickly help the users in emergency situations.
According to the China Intellectual Property database, this patent was published on July 23, 2021, with announcement number CN113163052A in China.
The patent application describes that an emergency call method, which is applied to the electronic device (mobile phone). However, the patent method working includes:
When the mobile phone is in a locked state, the first operation of the user is detected on the display screen. In response to the first operation, the phone displays the emergency call interface through the display screen.
The emergency call includes one or more emergency call numbers and after the first preset time period expires. It automatically makes a call to the first emergency number, and the one or more emergency numbers include the first emergency call number.
After the first preset time period expires, if the mobile phone does not detect the user’s operation on the display screen, it will automatically alert after the call is disconnected between the mobile phone and the alarm station.
The smartphone displays a lock screen interface through the display screen. The realization of the present application helps a user to quickly initiate an emergency call in an emergency situation.
Importance of emergency call:
The emergency call is a very useful feature for asking for help through the mobile phone when you are in danger, in critical or emergency conditions.
In emergency situations such as emergency medical assistance, traffic accidents and natural disasters, the importance of emergency calls is increasing, and the laws and regulations of various countries have created a constant requirement for emergency calls.
